Every release of a new catalogue is exciting, however, the Autumn/Winter Catalogue is a firm favourite for me. I think this is because I LOVE Christmas and so I love to start planning what cards and gifts I can make for my loved ones. I also love planning my classes for the Christmas season. Being a smaller catalogue than the Annual one also helps me feel less overwhelmed! I have managed to summarise my favourites to a Top 5 though I have cheated a little because I have included suites and type of product- I would apologise but it is my list 😉 Please let me know in the comments what your favourites are!

I am a big fan of anything that makes my life easier and this year Stampin’Up! have introduced 3 new products that will make gift giving a breeze. These products are:
I love that fact that with some quick decorating, you have a professional product ready to gift. Want some ideas of how to use them?
2. Halloween Suite
I so wish that Halloween was a bigger holiday in the UK! When I was a kid, my mum would always make Halloween special. We would decorate the house, play silly games and get dressed up. Even though Halloween is not really a ‘big’ in the UK, I still love it! The new Halloween suite is so easy to create with.
3.Year of Cheer
The whole suite is divine-how wrong can you go with a metallic combination? My favourite though, is the speciality DSP (patterned paper). Firstly it’s thick so you can make bags & boxes with it. Secondly it’s one sided so I don’t need to cry over losing one side (come on-admit it-we all do!) and thirdly, its a majestic combination of metallics. Basically it’s my dream paper! Stampin’Up! realised a video showing demonstrators what we could make with this suite and I was blown away by a home decor piece they created. So much so that it was the first thing I made when my order arrived.
Here is a video you can watch about this suite.
Here is my version of the home decor piece. #WeddingWednesday
4) Merry Little Christmas Suite
Oh my goodness this suite! Never did I ever think I would love Old Olive and Basic Black as a Christmas pairing, but it I do! It works so well together that I am questioning how I never thought of it before?!
This is a mega suite, including 2 stamp sets, 1 set of dies, 1 punch and 2 packs of DSP. But I promise you its beautiful. You could make an endless amount of stunning projects because everything co-ordinates like a dream. I CASED the catalogue and made this simple but elegant gift box.

5) Santa’s Suit stamp set
This is the cutest stamp set! Seriously-Santa in PJS! My mum and I have a tradition whereby we get new PJ’s on Christmas Eve so this set called to me. This is a perfect set for Christmas because it’s full of fun and a little cheek 😉 I made a Fancy Fold card. I will be doing a video later in the year showing you how to make this card.
That’s a lot of amazing product I’ve just shared & I am sure my favourites will change the more I get to play with the product! Let me know in the comments what your favourite is!
