Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

I am trying something new for this blog hop... I am taking my favorite 5 items in the new Holiday catalog that was released yesterday.  I made a project using one product or product suite as the focus of each of the five favorites.  Please enjoy checking out my favorites and leave me a comment with your favorite product(s) from the new catalog!

Top 5 Catalog Favorites:
5.  Core'dinations Card Stock and Stampin' Sanding System
I was not sure about this new product but I absolutely love it.  In the example below I am showing you a torn piece of this card stock (see how the inside is a different shade of the color?), a piece simply embossed, and then an embossed piece using the Stampin' Sanding System.  I love the look of each piece.  Check out my blog tomorrow to see a project made with one of these pieces!

4. Scentsational Season Stamp Set: I was so excited to see this stamp set because I have been wanting stamps that look like cookies for several years!  This stamp set is perfect since it has matching framelits (which I have ordered but haven't received).  
This is also a PREVIEW for this weekends projects.  Check back to Saturday to see the entire gift set I made to match the card pictured here (and to see the adorable package)!

3. Monster Munchies Stamp Set: This just happens to be the set I got during convention as prize patrol.  Aren't they so cute?  I have some great ideas for the "Munster".

2. Ghoulish Googlies Bundle: this awesome bundle includes: Googly Ghouls stamp set, 20 printed double-sided tags, 10 glassine bags, 50 adhesive googly eyes, 10 pieces of exclusive pumpkin pie twine.  Check out the adorable projects I made with them.  I plan to give each student in my class a bag and 3x3 card.
Silver Glimmer paper (which I sponged with pumpkin pie ink)

1. Friendship Preserves Bundle: this bundle includes: Friendship Preserves stamp set and the Window Fames Collection Framelits Dies.  I immediately could see myself using these stamps and dies to create labels for my mom's homemade jam as well as using it for my Harvest Mix jars for Thanksgiving.
