    We have the same taste. The things you didn’t like, I didn’t either.

    Since Holidays aren’t a big thing with us, a lot of items just wouldn’t get used UNLESS I was making something for sale or to show someone else who might like it. I know I should get SU paper, but I have literally TONS of paper = a whole file draw and several cabinets of CM papers from the days I was a demo for them and all the DSP that I’ve purchased ON SALE over the years. I love double sided paper, but like you, sometimes making the decision is difficult. I also have quite a bit of DS paper in my stash.

    Yes, wreath bundle! I bought last year’s wreath which did NOT have a die/punch for it. I also have another one that does have a die, but will add this one for sure.

    Agree on p 15 – to fluffy for my taste, but someone will do a WOW job with it and make me rethink, I’m sure.

    Houses – nice idea, but don’t care for these at all. Have seen several cards with them, but not moved, even with dies.

    Never have liked nutcrackers, and HATE the mustache theme – so overdone!

    P 21 – Probably not for me. How many Thank yous do I need, and have lots of snowflakes already and dont have parties to invite anyone to. 🙁

    p22 – Have to have the snowflake thinlit die for swinging cards and kinda like the snowflake embellies

    p 24 – Tree bundle YES, YES, YES. That may well form my cards for this year, although the Bright & Beautiful is on the list as well – mabe some of each?

    p26 – rdinal idea, but hate that they made him furry! What’s with that? Would look like I shook when I stamped it or something. The Peach onEarth is WAY TOO MUCH! Have seen cards and still think so, but LOVE the ornamental pine and have thoughts of that for card as well = 3 choices????

    p.29 Not cure – just grose, in my book

    p.31 – White Christmas is nice, but I don’t need it and have lots of trees in the collection already.

    p.32-33 – Don’t need more wishes, like the bear and the partridge, but don’t need either.

    Halloween is for the birds in my book – greedy kids begging for sugar to ruin their teeth and diets, Can you tellI’m an old crochety lady?

    Love the Gratitude concept – that’s the kind of thing I made for both sets of grandkids LAST Christmas – and NOW they have it in kit form!

    p 41 – like your card idea, but again, have LOTS of fall leaf stamps, acorns, etc.

    p.42 – Have two sets of feathers/dies – impatient for SU to ever get them! LOVE the scattered concept. Hope they will do a lot more sentiments in that format.

    I 48 – I was literally shocked to see the booze promotion, but there again, we don’t drink and have family who have been addicted, so probably a wet blanket on other’s “fun. I agree with you – they should have the sentiments separate.

    Great walk through – always enjoy hearing your take on items!

    I want to make easy Christmas cards now, where do I start? How do I get ideas for putting designs together, which is my biggest hurdle! Thanks

  • Lynn KLitzke says:

    I agree with what Vicki wrote. You have a wonderful way of putting your likes & dislikes on the video. Bless you Jessica. ♥ Lynn

  • Bonnie says:

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts & tips about the new Holiday Catalog! I do like Halloween, so I do like the Halloween things, however, I really haven’t made any Halloween cards but would like to. I agree with the goofy looking Santas, however, I like the moose in that stamp set, so I may buy it just for that.

    How would you do that Partridge in a Pear Tree Stamp? Any great ideas with that one, other than just coloring it?

    There are many things in this new catalog that are great! Thanks again! Bonnie

    Thank you for taking us through the catalog. Another person’s point of view can be invaluable when trying to stay on budget. I must say I loved “Cheerful Christmas” on page 15 but I fell in love with it because of the sample on page 8. My style is anything but cutesy. However, this sample gold embossed with red jewels and textured frame (also on page 15) is glamorous and simple enough to mass produce. Beautiful!

  • Carla Linaburg says:

    How do you get the blue background on the “White Christmas” cards? I love that set.

    • Jessica Taylor says:

      Do you have a link to a photo of a White Christmas card with a blue background? I’m sure it depends on the card, but if I saw one I might be able to tell you.
