2017 Holiday Catalog: A Few Of My Favorite Things

I don't know about you, but I am ready to get going on my fall and holiday crafting projects! Lucky for me (and you), the new holiday catalog is filled with tons of great products and ideas. This is by no means a complete list of my favorites, just a few I am currently completely enamored with. As I have a chance to work with more of the products, I will send out a part 2. 

If you haven't had a chance to browse the catalog yet, click here for a pdf version of the catalog. 

Here is a handy wish list to keep track of your personal favorites. 

First on my list? This probably won't shock you, but it is the Painted Harvest Bundle

I think this stamp set and punch are very versatile. This is a sneak peek of a card I've made using this set that I will be posting a video tutorial on in a few days. I have also had two other blog posts using this stamp set. See them here and here

Look at the wreath card made with this set in the photo below! I haven't made a Christmas card with this set yet, but I know I will. There are also coordinating embellishments, trim and Designer Series Paper. 

One more card below using the same technique that will be featured in the upcoming video tutorial. By now, I'm thinking this bundle should be on your list!

Next up: metallics. To be more specific, let's talk MIXED METALLICS. If this hot trend is right up your alley, Stampin' Up! has you covered!

The suite includes quite a few options for making your projects shine. This video from Stampin' Up! shows the suite in greater detail. 

Get the Merry Patterns Stamp Set Free!

Is your wish list as large as mine?  Earn this EXCLUSIVE, limited-edition Merry Patterns Stamp Set  when you place an order of $300 or more (excludes shipping and tax). This promotion includes on-line orders! Just an idea: You don't have to host your own party or place an order by yourself for that amount. If a group of your friends all ordered together, you would have this set to share for the holidays!

Watch the video below for some great examples of how to use this set. The deer makes me swoon!

September Hostess Code Gift with Purchase

Want more to LOVE? Simply place an online order through me for the amount of $75 or more (before tax & shipping) and you will earn your choice of a Stampin' Up! Textured Embossing Folder valued at $8.50 or less. There are 14 embossing folders at this price point currently, including a few new ones that have just became available in the 2017 Holiday Catalog. Embossing folders will be mailed to out in July. Just use the hostess code in the top right corner when ordering, DO NOT choose "no contact" from demonstrator. Then email me at to let me know which embossing folder you would like to have. 

Do you have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? If not, I would love to be your source for these amazing products and hopefully give you a good dose of inspiration from time to time. Live in the US and need a catalog? Just let me know. This is not just a hobby for me, it is a passion! Click on the header above to find out more info on how you can earn free stamp sets just by shopping with me. Earn Frequent Buyer Rewards!

Please use the hostess code shown in the top right corner when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards! 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Artfully Yours,


  1. This is just amazing. Hosting a party is quite a talented thing as not everyone is good at party planning. My sister does party planning wonderfully. On last weekend she threw a vintage themed surprise party at one of the best NYC venues for mom’s birthday which was totally spectacular.
