My Favorite Things – Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog (part 2)

Yesterday I shared three of my favorite things in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. How fun! We looked at My Favorite Suite, My Favorite Bundle, My Favorite Dies and My Favorite Accents. Today we’ll be looking at a few more things I love in this amazing catalog.


I always love the launch of a new catalog – what’s not to love about new designs of new craft supplies?! Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog is incredible! There are so many great, new products showcased in this new book! Stampin’ Up!’ Demonstrators have enjoyed the opportunity to play with these new items since late last year, and we’ve enjoyed sharing our new projects with you. Now we get to share these new products with you, too – what fun! Hopefully this list of my favorite things will help you to shuffle your list or whittle it down a little bit – or it might inspire you to add some items you overlooked. 🙂 Either way, I’m happy to share my favorites from the book with you.

In an effort to narrow down my list a bit, I’ve lumped my favorites into categories.  Some are themes, some are product lines and some are accessories.

Today I am sharing:

  • My Favorite Designer Series Papers
  • My Favorite Sentiments
  • A Fan Favorite
  • My Favorite Sale-a-Bration Reward

If you missed yesterday’s favorites, you can see them here.

My Favorite Papers – Best Dressed

With all the beautiful, new papers in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite. I’m up for a challenge, though, so I forced myself to pick one. After six hours of pros and cons charts, fierce debates and private polling, I chose Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper as my favorite paper in the new catalog.

This pack of 6″ x 6″ papers is filled with a mix of soft floral patterns, style-themed “girly” pages and colorful designs. The floral pages are stunning! Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:

Best Dressed 6x6 Designer Series Paper page, Stampin Up!I can’t stop reaching for the pages in this pack of papers – the floral and basic print pages are so inspiring. Here’s one of my cards that features two pages from this pack of papers (you can click on the photos to see my original posts for the project):

My Favorite Sentiments – Thanks for the Laughs

Thanks for the Laughs is all about friendship. Whether we roll with a large crowd or hang with a few special friends, we all have that ONE friend who makes us laugh, gets us into trouble and makes everyone feel special. If you don’t have a friend like that, then maybe YOU are that person? I love these sentiments so very much! They are fun, funny and full of heart! Here’s a look at the “front-of-the-card and inside-the-card” sentiments in Thanks for the Laughs:

Thanks for the Laughs, Stampin' Up! 151670How fun are those sentiments. I love how perfectly coordinated they are for either the inside and outside. They are also good enough to be shown by themselves or together on the front of a card. Such versatility in these fun sentiments. Here are two cards I’ve made with sentiments from this set (you can click on the photos to see the original post for each project):

Fan Favorite

It’s always fun to see what customers pick up when they place their first order from a new catalog. I was looking for some of these products to come through, but I was surprised by one item that was included on MANY of the orders I received – the Mountain Air Bundle. I was so impressed to see so many come through that I quickly ordered the set myself. I’ve not yet created anything with it to share here, but you can be on the lookout for something soon. ♥

Here’s a look at the Mountain Air Bundle:

My Favorite Sale-a-Bration Reward – Lily Pads

Since Sale-a-Bration is aligned with the release of Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, I thought I should include a favorite Sale-a-Bration reward. There are three lily pad-centered products in the Sale-a-Bration catalog: Lovely Lily Pad reversible stamp set, Lily Pad Dies and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. Each of them is wonderful, but together they are amazing. Here’s a look at all three:

Lovely Lily Pad, Stampin' Up! 152288 Lily Pad Dies, Stampin' Up! 152315 Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 152284The Lovely Lily stamp set and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper can each be your Sale-a-Bration selection with a $50 order. The Lily Dies can be your Sale-a-Bration selection with a $100 order. So…buy $200 of product you want, earn $20 of Stampin’ Rewards to spend wherever you want and pick up these three coordinated items.

Bonus. The Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo Pack also coordinates with these products.

Here’s a card I recently made with the paper and ides in this gorgeous trio (you can click on the photo to see the original post for this card):

  1. I adore that you chose Best Dressed as a favorite DSP. Cool addition of “fan favorite,” too!

  2. I love the Lily Pad. I will work towards the DSP and the dies. Love the colors and design of the paper. I also need the tulips and punch for spring and Easter. Now I just need time to play with them!

  3. Seeing your favorites is always a fun blog. Enjoy your day!

  4. Still smiling about you spending six hours on these decisions. This is always a favorite blog post for me to read. Enough for now, need to huddle under my blanket and think warm thoughts.
