The January-April mini catalogue launched today! Here are some of the products I’m excited to get my hands on. Will this help you narrow down your wish list, or perhaps add a few more items you hadn’t considered?

Best Item for Beginners – Sentimental Park stamp set

If you could only afford to buy one new item from this catalogue, this is the one I’d recommend! With 23 photopolymer stamps including year-round sentiments such as new baby, graduation, anniversary, birthday, love, and so much more, the flexibility is unparalleled! Mix and match 16 separate sentiments for maximum card making options, and enjoy some fun two-step stamping with the floral image stamps to decorate. This stamp set is packed with value and versatility!

Best Sentiment Stamp Set – Something Fancy

This stamp set covers heartfelt and sassy for a variety of occasions: birthday, gratitude, friendship, sympathy, wedding, and more – you can say everything you want to say, all in a beautiful modern font combo. Step it up by adding the coordinating dies, a perfect selection of versatile tag and label shapes!

Best Graphic Stamp Set – Two-Tone Flora, Love Cats

I couldn’t narrow this down to just one choice, so I’m offering you two suggestions! First, Two-Tone Flora is probably the most stunning two-step stamp sets I’ve ever used, and it is incredibly easy to create jaw-dropping flowers for your project – even without adding the coordinating dies. Whether you prefer realistic colours or want to let your full creativity run wild, you’re going to love creating a floral masterpiece with this set!

Your second option for Best Graphic Stamp Set is Love Cats. These furtastic felines are “purr-fect” for creating pawsitively irresistible Valentine’s Day cards and so much more! Just look at how adorable they are!

Best Embellishments –Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls

These stunning iridescent gems are part of the By the Bay suite, but they’re a perfect touch of bling for any project. The iridescent shimmer will go with any colour or theme!

Best Valentine’s Day item – Country Bouquet bundle

The soft watercolour look of this stamp set, the country-themed floral images, the perfectly scripted sentiments, and the charming punch, all combine to make this a delightfully versatile bundle – not just for Valentine’s Day, but for many other occasions as well! To step it up, add some Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper – you can use the punch to punch out some of the images from the paper!

Best Designer Series Paper – Fancy Flora

This paper has everything I adore: an enormous list of coordinating colours (Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede), beautiful abstract and floral images created with brush strokes you can almost touch, and the easy-to-use format of 6×6″. This paper works especially well for backgrounds, and for adding texture to die cuts and labels.

Best Specialty Designer Series Paper – By the Bay

Get carried away to a happy place full of surf, sand, and sun! This stunning specialty DSP features water-inspired designs and a subtle shimmer of pearlescence on some sheets. Not only is it truly gorgeous, it’s great for both masculine and feminine cards for a variety of occasions!

Best New Tool – Alphabet a la Mode dies, Blending Brushes storage

Hip Hip Hooray – we have a new alphabet die set! Create your own die-cut words and phrases for any occasion with this 52-die set. I love that Stampin’ Up! has included multiples of several letters, to make it faster for us to complete our projects. Numbers are also included, along with some common symbols and punctuation marks. What an awesome deal for just $58!

Did you notice this fabulous storage piece for the Blending Brushes? (Not to mention the fact that Blending Brushes now come in two sizes, regular and small!) Keep your Blending Brush collection at your fingertips yet out of your way with this handy storage piece, which holds up to nine brushes (any size).

In Case You Missed It …

I want to draw your attention to a few other products that I think you’ll love, such as the Watercolour World background stamp. How beautiful is this!?

I also love that Stampin’ Up! is leaning right into celebrating other hobbies and passions with us, such as dance with the Ballet Beauty stamp set

and music, with Enjoy the Rhythm!

This Conversation Bubbles bundle looks like a lot of fun!

And the adorable gnomes are back with a springtime mood! This new Friendly Gnomes stamp set coordinates with the Gnomes dies from the Autumn Mini catalogue, which have carried over and are still available!

Hostess Exclusives – We love to reward our hostesses! There are two fantastic host exclusives in the new mini catalogue – an adorable stamp set of critters At the Pond, and the cheerful Flowers and More mega-pack of Designer Series Paper (48 sheets of 12 x 12″). You can earn these products free with a qualifying party or personal order of $200 and above!

It wouldn’t be right for me to end this post without mentioning Sale-a-Bration, or as we seasoned stampers like to call it: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! If you’re new to Stampin’ Up! and don’t know what Sale-a-Bration is all about, I’ll give you a quick explanation: this gorgeous little brochure full of awesome products should have landed in your mailbox recently (if it didn’t, let me know and I’ll send you one!). As usual, Sale-a-Bration offers terrific rewards for everyone! There are exclusive free products to be earned with your purchase from either the annual catalogue or the new Spring mini catalogue; even the Clearance Rack on the Stampin’ Up! website! You’ll see there are two levels of rewards available: Level One rewards are earned with a $60 purchase, and Level Two rewards are earned with a $120 purchase. Sale-a-Bration items are only available until February 28th (or while supplies last) and will not be offered again.
