Hey ya’ll – well, it’s Friday again! Looking forward to a weekend.
Will this be the LAST weekend I look forward to? Since…by this time next week I’ll be mere hours away from being retired?
A good friend told me that – even though she’s retired – she still works during the week – and uses the weekends for chores and fun.
Will I do that?
I don’t know – it doesn’t seem to be the way to alleviate the “Sunday evening blues”, now does it? I think I want to get to the point where I have to look at my watch to see what day of the week it is!
I guess we’ll see which way it ends up, won’t we? In the meantime…HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂
I thought this would be a super good day to bring you some looks at the 2019 Holiday Catalog. 🙂
Now – sorry! – I can’t actually show you pictures of the INSIDE of the catalog. But I CAN share some pictures of the SAMPLES that are inside the catalog. So…close! 😉
I thought what I’d do is start with some bundles and suites – there are 25 Bundles (stamp set and dies/punch sets) in this catalog. Those are wonderful cuz you get a quick 10% savings right off the top! That means there’s a lot to look at – so….we’ll do about half today and the rest tomorrow!
First up – we’ve got the Toile Tidings Suite – which includes some beautiful DSP and wrapping paper (yes – thinner and 2′ x 3′ in size!). There are two bundles in this suite: The Toile Christmas Bundle and the Tidings All Around Bundle.
The Tidings All Around Bundle includes the All-Around Wreath Dies – which also coordinates with a Fall-ish stamp set called Seasonal Wreaths.
Next up – we’ve got the So Many Stars Bundle with the So Many Stars Stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies!
I HATE plaid!
Said no one….EVER!
I love plaid and I LOVE the Wrapped in Plaid Suite (and so will you!). The Designer Series Paper is a handy 6″ x 6″ and has plaid on one side and not-plaid-Christmas-themed designs on the other! The Perfectly Plaid Bundle includes the stamp set by the same name and the most wunnermus new Pine Tree Punch!
There’s another bundle in that suite called…Peaceful Boughs. Oh. My. Goodness. You KNOW how I feel about pine trees/boughs/cones! The Peaceful Boughs stamp set works perfectly with the bundled Beautiful Boughs Dies!
If you liked the Curvy Keepsake Framelits from the past – hang on to your socks! The Let It Snow Suite includes the Snowman Season Bundle…
…and the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle – with a stamp set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (unlike the previous set – you’ll only have to cut a single piece to create the box – not two!).
The Night Before Christmas Suite includes the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season Dies. And this suite has the super-cool Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and coordinating Cards & Envelopes (see them in that second picture?)!
One Moose. Two Mooses….moosies? Regardless…check out the Merry Moose Bundle with a MERRY MOOSE PUNCH!!!
Here’s the Shine Bright Bundle – with beautiful stars and the Stitched Brightly Dies!
If you’re a fan of non-traditional Christmas colors – think blues and coppers – you’re going to be head-over for the Brightly Gleaming Suite! With its Christmas Gleaming and bundled Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (yep – TWO punches in the pack) – you’ll be all set!
Now. Here’s a new bundle that has a really innovative stamp design – that I can’t wait to get my hands on! The Cup of Christmas stamp set is a photopolymer set with TWO-SIDED stamps! Stamp one side…
…clean it off and turn it over (as in upside down!) on your block…
…and ink/stamp the reverse image!
Then cut the images with the matching Cup of Cheer Dies! Cool beans!
The Feels Like Frost Suite is next up and it is smack-your-lips gorgeous! The Frosted Foliage stamp set and bundled Frosted Frames Dies will coordinate amazeballsingly with the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP – the card front on this first sample is just one of the beautiful designs in the pack!
Okay – I think that’s a good stopping place for now! We’ll hit the rest of the bundles/suites and a few odds-and-ends tomorrow!
In the meantime – be sure YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog! I’ll be ordering them next week and then mailing them out quick a I can get them!

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?
If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)
If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state ! HINT: TENNESSEE is next up – your weekend is starts TODAY!! Shop on 26 – 28 July to save big on sales tax!
Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn likes to hang with his dad in the shop on nice cool-ish summer days like we’ve had.
…or is he guarding??
What is that??? Do you see it??
Wayne and I never saw a thing.
That’s how “they” get you, you know.
Thank goodness he was there to warn the boogers away!
