Top 10 NEW Items in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up Catalog

 Mini Stampin' Dimensionals#1 – Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals 

I was so excited to see this hidden gem in the Stampin’ Up catalog!  I always am cutting my dimensionals in half to have them fit on the little shapes and letters.  Well, after one month recently where Paper Pumpkin had a kit that included mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I thought, “Man, these would be great to have on hand all the time!”

Stampin’ Up heard us and now you can get your own pack with 720 of them for only $4!

Soft Sayings Card Kit #2 – Soft Sayings Card Kit
I love, love, love card kits.  Especially when they make really cute cards, and this new card kit fits the bill perfectly!  The printed card bases give you a great foundation to stamp and embellish with all the great die cuts, stamps, and accessorites that come in a convenient little box.  This is great for traveling or for giving as a gift.  All you need is a SNAIL tape runner and you are set!See it in the online storePS – if you end up loving the kit, you can now get REFILLS for the kit at a discounted rate!
 #3 – Love Today Planner Kit

If you love planners, or have been curious about planners, this is going to be a super fun kit for you!  I love how it takes the idea of a planner and steps it up!  Your planner kit includes a binder that is sized to perfectly fit any of the Memories & More (or previous Project Life) page protectors, so you can mix and match as necessary.  And you get pocket pages, undated calendar pages (so you can start anytime), stickers, and accessories.

And even better?  The accessory sheets are hole punched so they store right in the back of your planner!

Pick a Pattern Suite by Stampin' Up #4 – Pick a Pattern Suite

I couldn’t pick just one favorite from this suite to share here in my list.  I love the stamp set and the patterned paper… and the colors are just so fun for anytime of year!  It is a good mix of cute images and cool backgrounds for your projects.

See what I mean on the Pick a Pattern suite page

 #5 – Ombre Ribbon

If you heard a scream a few weeks back, that was me… jumping up and down and squeeling like a little girl because that A-MA-ZING Ombre ribbon that was in the Cupcakes & Carousels Accessory Pack in the Occasions Catalog, was now available by itself in 3 cute colors!  You can get it in Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, and Lemon Lime Twist.  So soft and so pretty in person, whether you try them all in my Product Samplers or get a whole spool… you won’t be sad you did!

 #6 – Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle

Really, I could love just the die alone… it is so fun.  But I love how it pairs with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  And when you can get them both and save money, well… sign me up!  Plus the stamp set coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet punch and the Classic Label Punch, so you can expand it even more!

Glitter Enamel Dots #7 – Glitter Enamel Dots

Everyone is going bananas over these, and myself included!  I was silly and didn’t order them on my very first pre-preorder after On Stage because I thought I was going to be good and wait until my regular preorder.

Well… turns out they were so popular they quickly sold out and went on backorder!  I’ve ordered more, so they will be on their way to me soon.  But I know these are going to go like hot cakes!  You can order some today, but if you see a message about them being on back order, don’t worry!  They are getting their shipment in on June 5th, so they will be out the door to you and only behind the rest of your items by a couple days. 🙂

Floral Statements Stamp Set #8 – Floral Statements Stamp Set

I had to put this stamp set on my list because I think it is going to be easily missed!  It is so gorgeous and looks really complicated to color… but it can be as simple or as detailed as you want! It is perfect for simple watercoloring with an Aqua Painter or get details with the Watercolor Pencils.  Either way, it is on my very first order and I can’t wait to play!

 #9 – Embossing Paste

This is one thing I don’t have any experience with… and when I saw it in the catalog I pretty much just passed it over.  But then I saw it demo’d at OnStage and I was totally sold!  It is a really cool way to add some texture and dimension to your cards in actually a pretty simply way to do it.  Just lay down a mask and then paint on some of the Embossing Paste.  You can add color to the paste, color it later, use it as a background, lots of fun options!

Check out the embossing paste and a few more samples in the online store

Also, here are the masks and the tools that go with it to make your experience much easier and more successful!

 #10 – Birthday Memories Designer Paper

Ok, one more favorite to make it a nice and even Top 10!  I thought I would share the Birthday Memories designer paper.  It looks like your favorite classic childrens book, but also has die cuts that perfectly cut out the shapes in the patterned paper, and so much more to go with it.  I saw a great idea for a fun class that I hope to have shared with you all soon!  But in the meantime, you have to check them out!

  1. I just spent time looking at ALL the catalog which came by email. I’ve been stamping at least 10 years and have a LOT of stamps. I did see some things in the catalog, however, that I’d like to have. I’d like to attend one of your
    classes/parties. But, not right away.
    I am in the Sno-King Chorale (about 100 people) and we are just about ready to perform FIDDLER ON THE ROOF.
    It will be June 10 in Edmonds. One performance at 3:00 and another one at 7:00. So, I am really busy (and also
    exhausted) right now due to extra rehearsals. If you could let me know when the next get-togethers will be (near Seattle would be best), I’ll plan to attend one later. Thank you. Anita.
