My Wish List for the New Occasions Mini!

As you can see from my right-hand border, there's a new Mini Catalog on the scene!  Yes, the Occasions Mini has arrived!  I'm making my Wish List (I'll wait to order until I can take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration bennies).

Numero Uno on my list?  I have to say it's the Framelits and Edgelits dies:
These versatile tools (pages 6 and 7) will add pop to any project!
What else am I pining for?  Here are Numbers Two through Ten:

Number Two:  Tea Shoppe stamp set (page 19)!  Oh, how I love a cuppa (one sits steeping next to me as I type)!  I love these images and I *adore* the quote from Louisa May Alcott, who is one of my favorite authors.
Number Three:  Rue des Fleurs stamp set.  A lovely variety of images and sentiments.  I love vintage! Pages 22-3.
Number Four:  Found on the same page in the Mini is the Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper.  Contains a lot of these Rue des Fleurs images, creating some lovely papers for card-making and scrapping.
Number Five:  You're My Type stamp set.  For $13.95, it's a great price for a versatile set.  A sweet manual typewriter is the star of the show, accompanied by all "types" of useful phrases.  I will be using this set A LOT!  See it for yourself on page 27.
Number Six:  Packed for Everything Stamp Bundle (page 39)!  I look forward to using the Spotlight technique with these versatile stamps for cards celebrating all sorts of occasions.
Number Seven:  Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps "Occasions"...  Our neighbors got to eat my mom's yummy butter cookies, stamped with the sweet snowflake image, which was available in the Holiday Mini.  The good news is that those images are available for purchase in this Mini, as well ("Holidays") on page 40.  We also have three new images to carry us through spring...
Number Eight:  Candy Conversations (page 43).  For $8.95, this is a Valentine stamp that should be on every list.  What a cute and simple way to create Valentine greetings for everyone!
Number Nine:  Mixed Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom Punch.  Oh, so fun!  I can't wait to make layered blossoms (like the one in the sample on page 17).  This will make fun cards and pages for my scrapbook.  Anyone traveling in the tropics?  These would make some lovely tropical-looking blooms!

Finally, Number Ten:  Up in the Air Hostess-only stamp set!  For any merchandise order totaling $150 before shipping and tax, one qualifies for Hostess Dollars.  One of the things exclusive to that benefit is the ability to purchase the Hostess sets (page 5).  I *LOVE* the images in this set!  I also love the beautiful script of the sentiments...  You know how I love a useful set!
Why am I waiting until January 24th to place my order?  Sale-A-Bration benefits, of course!  I'll be posting about my favorites soon...  Thanks for the visit!
