Covering Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog

Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have been flipping through the GORGEOUS pages of Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog for the past three weeks, and I’ve mailed copies of this amazing book to my customers. While I can’t yet show you the inside of this amazing book online, I can show you the cover and the projects shared there. What fun!

Here is the front cover of Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Annual Catalog:

August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, Brian King

As you can see, the front cover of the new Mini Catalog is styled like the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog – a parade of projects that spread out over a beautiful landscape. The book is also bound in landscape (vs. portrait) fashion. There are so many Christmas-themed projects on the front cover from a variety of bundles and suite – such a great showcase! It can be overwhelming to try to take it all in at once, so I’m going to break it down for you a bit.

A Closer Look

I want to zoom in a bit and chat with you about the images on this cover. You can look at the beautiful cover all day, but don’t you want to know what products are being showcased there? Today I’m going to walk through the products used to create the first five projects on this cover. How fun is that?!

August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, group 1, Brian KingProject 1

  • This Real Red box is made with Real Red Cardstock and covered with Red Velvet Paper (#153490, p. 63).
  • The gorgeous sleigh on the front of the box is cropped from the Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper (#153488, p. 31), which features Christmas-themed newspaper prints on Whisper White paper. There are pages with black ink and with a mix of gold and red foils. It’s festive and beautiful and whimsical (that’s right – all three of those).
  • The box is topped with a Shaded Spruce argyle satin ribbon from the Wonder of the Season Combo Pack (#153537, p. 31).

Project 2

  • The new catalog features a new set of pine trees that are sure to be on your list – the In the Pines Bundle (#155182, p. 43) is prominently displayed on this card.
  • While there’s a gorgeous deer die in the North Pole Wonder Dies, the deer on this card is a sticker from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack (#153538 p. 31).
  • The gold cord bow is from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack (#153537, p. 31).

Project 3

  • The new catalog showcases several new packaging ideas. This project features a stack of Rectangle Tins (#153519, p. 55), which are similar to the familiar packaging of Altoids.
  • The tins are wrapped with patterns from the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (#153489, p. 31) and wrapped with the amazing Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Thread (#153546, p. 9).
  • The label on the front of the tins is from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack (#153538 p. 31).

August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, group 2, Brian KingProject 4

  • I can’t be 100% certain, but I’m pretty sure the light post and Shaded Spruce sign are pulled from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack (#153538 p. 31).
  • I called this “Project 4” (even though it’s really just a side-element on the front cover) so that I could point out the trees and snowflakes that are peppered all over the cover.
  • The gorgeous die-cut trees are from the Pine Woods Dies (#153563, p. 43), part of the In The Pines Bundle (#155182, p. 43). We’ve seen a lot of tree sets over the years (and they are always popular), but this one is quite amazing! ♥
  • The gold foil snowflakes that festoon the cover of this catalog are from the sure-to-be-a-top-seller So Many Snowflakes Dies (#153560, p. 38), part of the Snowflake Wishes Bundle (#155172, p. 38). Like the trees, we’ve seen so many snowflake dies over the years – there’s something really, really special about this bundle, though.

Project 5

  • You might not be able to see it from the angle of the photo on the cover of the catalog, but this project features one of the  Round Tins (#153544, p. 68), sweet round tins with clear windows on the lids.
  • This Round Tin is covered with a piece of the Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper (#153488, p. 31) and wrapped with the gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack (#153537, p. 31).
  • The poinsettia on the top of the tin is stamped and cropped with elements from the Poinsettia Petals Bundle (#155148, p. 16), which includes the Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#153475, p. 16) and Poinsettia Dies (#153522, p. 16).
  • The sweet-and-simple tag is stamped with the Cherish the Season stamp set (#153417, p. 33) that is part of the Cherish the Season Bundle (#155154, p. 33) and cropped with a tag from the North Pole Wonder Dies (#153523, p. 32) that is part of the Wishes & Wonder Bundle (#155151, p. 32).

    Good morning, Brian!
    Reading your post about the many beautiful goodies in the new mini-catalog reminds me of the Christmas toy catalogs camIng in the mail when our children were little. They would go through them until the pages were dog-eared! This catalog might end up looking the same once it arrives at my house … wow!
    Have a great week!

    • Thank you, Suzie! I couldn’t agree with you more – I’m STILL finding more things I want in this book, and I’ve been through it 100 times. 🙂 Such a great one – your copy should arrive today. ♥

  2. Exciting…thanks for all the info!

  3. Can’t wait to get my hands on this catalog! There is ALWAYS room for another tree set as far as I’m concerned. I still have a list a gazillion miles long from the new catalog but that list will have to get set aside once I get this baby I’m sure. LOL Thanks for the breakdown of the cover projects. Every single one is gorgeous.

    • Yay! I’m so happy, Grace! Your catalog should arrive today or tomorrow – and I know you are going to love flipping through the pages. Such a beauty! ♥♥♥
