My top 10 Occasions Catalogue Picks!

Hi there! Today I'm sharing with you my favourite products from the NEW Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue!!!! I must admit that it was very difficult to narrow it down to only 10 items, as I love just about everything... but I did it!

Here we go...

10) From the Herd
I knew as soon as I saw this set, it would be a must have. Simply because there is a pig in it. I love pigs, I have been collecting antique pigs for years and even had a pot bellied pig for a while. I also love the fact that this set has sentiments for belated (it's pasture birthday), and from the herd, from all of us and party animals. Super cute and great for colouring too with those cute animals!

9) Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies
This set of thinlits sure has a lot of stuff included besides the treat bag dies. It comes with 3 border dies, a banner, tape diecut, a star, a heart, a bow, and 2 sentiments (enjoy and for you). Great for Valentine's Day and Easter coming up!

8) Celebrate Today
Who doesn't need more birthday stamps? I love that this set can be bundled with matching framelits to make easier cards and projects.

7) Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack
I love these smaller paper stacks (4-1/2" X 6-1/2"), they are perfect for cards or smaller projects. This particular paper stack contains something special - photo like images on one side... rocks, woodgrain, forest, grass, water... and more. The other side has plaids, tweeds and other very masculine patterns great to pair up with my next must have...
6) Guy Greetings
This set was on the top half of my list since I find it difficult to make masculine cards. I love flowers, butterflies and sparkles... not so appropriate for guys. This set of stamps has some vintage inspired images and great sentiments. I like that it has a grandpa, brother, dad, husband, father, and uncle stamps - makes personalizing your projects that much easier!
5) NEW Blendabilities Markers
Now, I understand that Blendabilities have been out for a while now - but I love that Stampin' Up! has released more colours. I'm so excited that Bermuda Bay is now available, as it's one of my favourite and most used colours! Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi are lovely subtle tones, great for the springtime!


4) Painted Petals
Now this was one set that I thought "It's just another floral set, I don't need it... until I tried it." That was it, as soon as I inked my first stamp from this set I had to have it. It is so easy to whip up quick cards and it has that lovely painted look... hense the name "Painted Petals". It is great for the upcoming holidays too, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day... lovely set.

3) Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack
I can't seem to stop using this paper, I love that one side is all black and white and the flipside is reds and coral shades. The designs are very versatile too.
2) Sheltering Tree
This stamp set is so beautiful, it had to make the list. It works great for masculine or feminine cards, it has some lovely sentiments and would work for many different occasions.

1) Butterfly Basics Bundle
This is my top pick because I love butterflies, flowers and foliage - but the fact that it has the option for a bundle with framelits makes it a must have. The stamps can be used on their own and make beautiful projects or just the diecuts. It is so much fun creating with this gorgeous bundle of products!
