Stampin' Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog Debuts TODAY!

Welcome to the NEW Stampin' Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog!

This is a FABULOUS collection of holiday products, so much to see! To help you learn more, Stampin' Up! has incorporated some Interactive Media prompts for several of the products. To use this feature, you will need to download the Layar app. Whenever you see an "interactive" icon (red square with an exclamation mark) in the catalog, simply scan the page with the app to unlock an informative video (see page 5).

You will find that the layout of this catalog is a little different from a traditional Stampin' Up! catalog. The 2013 Holiday Catalog features project and décor ideas and inspiration through page 17. Product descriptions and ordering information appear on pages 18-37. Hostess Dollars and items exclusively offered to those qualifying for Hostess Dollars are featured on page 39. All stamp images in the catalog are shown at 100% size, except the Hostess exclusive stamps on page 39--which are featured at 75% of actual size. You will also find several product bundles throughout the catalog, created with coordinating product, to save you money!

• Thankful Stamp + Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit (p. 18)
• Be Very Merry Stamp + Snowflake Season Simply Sent Kit (p. 26)
• Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set + Merry Little Christmas Card Kit (p. 27)
• Festive Flurry Stamp Set + Festive Flurry Framelits Dies (p. 30)
• Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set + Christmas Ornament Punch (p.35)
• Morning Post Numbers Stamp Set + Mini Muslin Bags (p. 36)
• Tags 4 You Stamp Set + Label Bracket Punch (p. 37)

And as usual, there are several fun new Designer Series Papers (my favorite is Winter Frost)...a few of them with some "mini" counterparts, in the form of 4-1/2 x 6-1/2" paper stacks! The designs are the same/similar to designs in the full-size 12" x 12" packages. These smaller proportioned stacks are ideal for those of you who tend to reach for patterned paper to create quick, colorful cards, instead of large projects or scrapbook pages. And if you love pre-printed crafting items, you will go crazy over the number of tags, bows, card kits, and decor kits you can choose from this catalog! Don't miss the Season of Style Journal, with its several calendar pages, and planning space for décor ideas, party planning, gift giving records, and of course, holiday card inspiration tracking, and space for your ever-evolving and infamous Christmas Card List!

There are several punches, framelits, and cutting dies which are not only useful for the holidays, but even year round--like the Envelope Liner Framelits. Joining Stampin' Up!'s cutting clan (available for order starting August 9th) is the Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Addition, and coordinating accessories: Perforating Rotary Blade, as well as the items originally introduced in the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog (on page 177), which are the Small Scallop Rotary Cutting Blade, Tiny Wave Rotary Cutting Blade, and Replacement Straight Rotary Blades.

My personal favorite is the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit on page 31, with its coordinating "Refill" Kit, as well as a Halloween Accessory Kit, and a Christmas Accessory Kit. The stencils you get with the Build a Banner original kit can be used over and over again, forever, to create cards, pages, décor, and more! And with the handy "refill" kit, I can grab more pennants and jute whenever I feel the need. I'm almost afraid to start playing with them, because I may get so excited that I don't back to any other projects for days!!!

I'll let you drool over those tidbits for now, while you browse the 2013 Holiday Catalog PDF. If you'd prefer to see the Holiday Catalog products in an ordering environment, so you can just add whatever you want to your cart as you go along,

And if you are interested in getting a traditional hard copy of the Holiday Catalog, be sure to email me so I can get one out to you :-)
