The Holiday Catalog is *LIVE*!

I am such a sucker for Thanksgiving and Christmas that I almost look forward to the unveiling of the Holiday Catalog than I do the Annual Catalog (GASP!).  Truth...

What follows is my Must Have List from this catalog.  I didn't order a month ago when demonstrators could preorder, as I knew I would be busy with back-to-school and cramming in as much summer fun as I could, so I wouldn't be in the Studio much.  With the kids starting back to school tomorrow, the time is *NOW*!

You'll notice that my order is heavy on Christmas and the reason is I don't have a lot of time to make/send Halloween greetings.  We're usually in the thick of soccer, school and between having a Halloween birthday in the family and the fact that I make the kids' costumes (fewer now, sniff), I don't send out much, if anything, for Halloween.  What I like is that Stampin' Up! offers sets and dies for all of the months between now and the end of the year, so I can get something I can continue to use after October is over.  That's why Among the Branches and its Bundlemate, the Woodland TIEF are at the top of my list.  To be honest, that TIEF was going to top the list because it's gorgeous and I can use it for all of the men in my life.

Among the Branches & Woodland TIEF Bundle (140872)

Halloween, fall, Christmas and winter, all in one bundle!

While we're on the topic of bundles, I need to be honest and say I'd order the entire lot if I could. However, here are the ones I am purchasing now...

Festive Fireplace Bundle (140860)
Happy Scenes & Hearth & Home Bundle (140853)

Stampin' Up! released a video showcasing how these two bundles can be used together and it sold me.  So much fun (and the good news is that Happy Scenes includes sweet images in case I find time to use them for Halloween!)!

Here's the fab video:
