Yesterday I shared some of my favorite items in Stampin Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog – if you missed that post, you can see it here. By no means is yesterday’s list (or the concluding list I’m sharing today) a comprehensive list of everything I love in the new catalog – these are just my favorite items right now.

MY FAVORITE THINGS
I always love the launch of a new catalog – what’s not to love about new designs of new craft supplies?! Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog is filled to the brim with all the amazing products you need for your Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas projects this year! There are so many great, new products showcased in this new book – and the variety of products is out-of-this-world! Stampin’ Up!’ Demonstrators have enjoyed the opportunity to play with these new items for a month, 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 Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog with you.
In today’s post, I’ll be sharing the following:
- My Favorite Papers
- My Favorite Accessory
- My Favorite Stamp Sets
- A Big Surprise Favorite! Brace Yourself
My Favorite Designer Series Papers
It’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan of Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers. They are a great starting point for any card and a great focal point for many. As I flip through a new catalog, I always go straight to the Designer Series Papers and pay close attention to the colors and patterns. Here are my favorite Designer Series Papers in the new catalog:
Magic in This Night – #153517
Even if you only slightly love Halloween, the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper is a great choice! It’s created with gorgeous colors and romantic patterns with a couple of spooky twists. I SO love this pack of papers and will be using it a lot this season. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper:
The bright and cheery colors, mixed with the sweet homes and festive scenes, make Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper a great choice for fun projects this Christmas. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack of Designer Series Papers:
I love a gorgeous plaid print, and Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper gives us a grand variety of colors and plaids that can be used this holiday season and beyond. There are so many colors in this pack of papers, and they are all wonderful! Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:
My Favorite Accessory
There are a lot of really great accessories in Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog. If you haven’t already checked them out, do yourself a favor by looking up the following great packaging accessories:
- Mini Coffee Cups and Carrier – p. 9
- Rectangle Tins – p. 55
- Mosaic Gusseted Cellophane Bags – p. 60
- Round Tins – p. 68
Had you already seen all of these great accessories? Several are hidden inside the pages of the mini catalog.
My favorite new accessory in Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog, though, is the Banners Pick a Punch that’s hidden on page 65 of the catalog. This punch gives us six banner tip options in one punch! Such fun! Here’s a look:
My Favorite Stamp Sets
Not all stamp sets are paired with a punch or dies in a bundle. We need coordinating stamp sets and sentiment stamp sets, too! Here are my favorite single stamps in Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog:
Christmas Means More – #154730
I love Christmas movies, and I love working with large, bold sentiments. It’s only natural, then, that I would love the Christmas Means More stamp set, right? Here’s a look at the Christmas Means More stamp set:
Sentiments are the heart of any card. The For Unto Us stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog gives us some gorgeous images for Christmas. Here’s a look at the sentiments in this set (several of them will immediately bring a song to your lips):
I have really loved playing with the Posted for You Bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog, which includes the Posted for You stamp set and Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. I was so excited to see the Festive Post stamp set in the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog with festive images and sentiments that coordinate with this punch. Such fun! Here’s a look at the Festive Post stamp set:
My Surprise Favorite
If you know me (and I think you do), then you know I stay SO FAR AWAY from anything with glitter. It’s a terrible invention that shouldn’t be celebrated. When I set the options for my product shares, I included all options with the intention to remove the items I didn’t want to work with (like the Balmy Blue and Basic Black Glimmer Papers). Somehow, though, I kept them in.
When the products arrived and I started cutting the papers, I braced myself before opening the glimmer papers. After I had taped off the entire room with plastic drop cloths, I opened the papers and was immediately in love with the shiny blue glitter (it has pulled me in). As I carefully removed the paper from its package, I realized that no glitter specks came off in the bag on on my hand. What?! Could it be?! It could! Even after I cut each and every page for my shares, this gorgeous glimmer paper refused to shed one speck of glitter.
Here’s a look at the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper:
I hope you’ve enjoyed the selections of my favorite things from Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog. I hope I’ve confirmed your wish list – or helped you find something else you can’t live without. 🙂
