Brenda Jacobson

I love the Smitten Mitten. Actually their all beautiful.

LuAnn Hilton

I like the Smitten Mittens. Such a cozy feeling.

Mary Ann Ely

Good morning Patty,,,,,, I actually have 3 favorite's...... My first one is Night Of Bethlehem. I was so excited when I finally saw a religious Bundle...My second favorite is Painted Harvest . I LOVE sunflowers and you can also turn that stamp in to a cute little Hedgehog,,,, my third is the Smitten Mittens,,,,,, what cute cards they make,,,, but my biggest reminder of that stamp set is my dad putting on my mittens when I was just a kid. It's funny how a stamp set can bring back so many fond memories. When I saw it , I knew I had to have it...Well you want 1 but I just couldn't narrow it down to one,lol...... Have a great day Patty


My absolute favorite is musical season! But a close second and third are night in Bethlehem and smitten mittens.

Amy Peacock

I really like the Hearts Come Home bundle but there are so many good ones to chose from!

Ann Pomerleau

My favourite bundle is the Hearts Come Home.
Thanks for the opportunity to win. I love all your cards and videos.


Painted harvest has so many ideas to try. I love the fun. I wish I had added paper pumpkin in October. So sad to have missed it.

Mary C.

Hi Patty, my favorite bundle is Hearts come home. I have made a ton of Christmas cards with this set and I love them all. Thanks for all your inspiration on your blog, I check in everyday and I always find something interesting. Thanks again.

Painted Harvest is my favorite. Not only could you use it for the fall but it also makes a beautiful wreath!! Thank you for all of your ideas!

I have loved the Year to Cheer Suite! You can use it for so many occasions, not just the holidays. It is so elegant too!

Have a great day, don't forget to pick me for October!!!


I can't narrow it to just one! Painted Harvest or Christmas Quilt.

My favourite is Hearts come home, it is beautiful for Christmas but also can be used for weddings, and cards throughout the year which is always a great selling point for customers,
Thanks for the opportunity to win a great prize!

Deepa M.

Oh my goodness, how generous of you Patty! Those kits sure were a hot commodity this year :) My favorite holiday bundle is (currently) snowflake sentiments, although the the santa's suit bundle just makes me smile, and I also really love the seasonal chums bundle. There are a lot of great bundles this year - I had a hard time choosing what to buy! :) Hope you and your family had a wonderful thanksgiving.


This holiday catalog is one of the best, but I really like the smitten mitten bundle :) Thanks for a chance to win these awesome kits! Merry Christmas.


Lots of great bundles but I like the night of Bethlehem bundle the best. Thanks for the giveaway.

Wishing you a happy day!


Barbara DIane

Kim T

Hi Patty!
Thanks for the opportunity to win these awesome kits! I would have to say my favorite bundle (if I have to pick just one) is the "Merry Little Labels" bundle. I love the versatility of the set and the punch layers so well with the 'Lots of Labels" framelits. Thanks for all you do and all you share on your website!


Merry Little Labels and Painted Harvest. Love to use punches, find framelits more challenging to line up. Thank you for posting so many wonderful ideas and projects every day, and for the opportunity to win 2 Paper Pumpkin kits.

Julie Strickland

Hi Patty,
I LOVE the Hearts Come Home bundle so so much!


I love your videos. They give me a lot of inspiration. I have too many holiday favorites but I guess if I were to choose one in the spirit of Christmas would be Night of Bethlehem

Deanna Green

Love the Santa suit stamp set.

I think my favorite is painted harvest I like sunflowers lot but I’ve also seen so many adaptations of this - Christmas Wreaths, hedgehogs.
I love all your work.

Shawna Paul

I just love the Night in Bethlehem bundle. I like to keep Christ in Christmas.


Oh my goodness! My absolute favorite is the Graveyard Gate!!!!! It is fantastic!!! I also love the Spooky cat, but Painted Harvest and the Christmas Quilt are awesome! They are all great, really. Thank you for another wonderful giveaway!!!

Verna Hardwick

Love Night in Bethlehem bundle!

Libby Bennett

Hearts Come Home (I'm very nostalgic when it comes to Christmas!) and Christmas Quilt since it brings back wonderful memories of my mom's superb quilting skills, which I didn't inherit.

Kathy Messer

I love Painted Harvest but my favorite is Hearts come Home! I can't wait to play with it this weekend! Thank you for the opportunity!

My favorite video is Musical Season and the second is Christmas Quilt. You do such a awesome job on all of them, it makes it hard to choose a favorite. Keep up the great work, and thanks for the opportunity for winning something.

Kathy West

I love Beachy Little Christmas, it's so cute and different.

Cindi H

This is a hard one to select just one... I love the Merry Cafe since it pairs with the Coffee cups framelits but for a bundle it's between the Merry Little Labels and Seasonal Chums! I can't wait to order the everyday label punch or the bundle.

Margaret Burgoon

The Smitten Mitten Bundle is my favorite! I've made card boxes and decorated the fronts with them..
I've made treat holders and of course cards! So makes me smile! Thanks for sharing your talent and the opportunity to win Paper Pumpkin sets...

Hi, Patty: thanks, as always, for your amazing inspiration! I am a huge fan of the Christmas Quilt bundle - especially since I used to be a quilter (before I discovered rubber stamping)!

It is so hard to pick just one. I love quilts and have some that my Great Grandmother and Great Aunt made, so my top choice is Quilted Christmas. It was the first one that I purchased. TFS

Marcia Weldon

I love Musical Season!

Nancy Wilcox

Painted Harvest is my favorite!

Graveyard Gala is amazing. I have seen many designs with this new set that include weddings and garden parties too.

Sandra Kukla Schroeder

These two October and November paper pumpkin sets are really great. I hope StampinUp does something like this again. I love the Smitten Mittens bundle.

I enjoy your blog very much and the way you explain things.
You amaze me!
I do like the sunflower set and also the Chum set for making cute children's gifts.
Thanks for the opportunity to win.


Patty ~ My favorite set at the moment is the Smitten Mitten. It's so Christmasy. Dress that mitten up or down! Fancy papers to plaids - I just L*O*V*E it!!!!!

Also, thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway.

Barb Youngs

Patty, thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway. You are the sweetest. I guess I would have to say that my favorite bundle is "Night in Bethlehem". I think it makes an awesome Christmas card...and reminds of the "reason for the season."

Kris Dansereas

I love the Graveyard Gate Bundle. There are so many variations to using parts of the gate! Thank you for all your ideas!

Joan Ness

My favorite bundle is the Smitten Mittens. So cute!

R Hill

Just one, huh? ...probably the Painted Harvest Bundle. I really like a lot of the bundles in this catalog, not to mention the papers! Thank you for all you do.

Doris D.

Painted Harvest was going to be my favorite before I saw Musical Season in the catalog when I was browsing the other day. I have seen some beautiful cards with the instruments. Would love to win the paper pumpkins because I have never tried them and would like to. Thank you!

carrie p

I have been having lots of fun with the Night in Bethlehem set. Thanks for the chance.

Karla Boncher

I love all your cards & ideas always. i have never bought a paper pumpkin kit, but the ones you are letting us try to win are the greatest.

C. McKinnon

This is a hard one because there were so many good ones. My three favorites:

Kathy Vogel  New York

Hi Patty!
My favorite bundle in the holiday catalog is Painted Harvest. I love sunflowers. I went on You Tube to see how hedgehogs were made with it too after reading an earlier comment. They are adorable. I would love to win the Paper Pumpkins. Thank you for the opportunity.

Lisa O'Reilly

Hi Patty:
I really like the "Carols of Christmas" bundle. Thanks for the opportunity to win a paper pumpkin kit!!!

Dawn Engler

I have a few favorites. But I love the Christmas Quilt bundle. You have so many ways of making a card. Fun fun fun. Smitten mitten is another one I like. I haven't purchased it yet but it is on the top of my wish list to get next. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway

Renée S.

So many to choose from! The snowflake sentiment bundle is my favorite.

Martha S

Night in Bethlehem is my favorite bundle and the first one I bought from the Holiday Catalog.

Jean Fitch

Whichever one I'm working with is my favorite one. I can't decide if that makes me fickle or just an open loving friend to them all. (grin)

Among the many I reach for over and over though in sequence. I started with Spooky Night suite items , (gotta love the cat) then Painted Harvest segued into Christmas Quilt (works for all occasions fall, winter, spring or summer) and on to winter holidays where Night in Bethlehem, Musical Season, Seasonal Lantern, Smitten Mitten and Hearts come Home have been sharing the table. And don't forget Carols of Christmas. Hm...just the very ones I hope will carry over to the annual. Now if you said non bundled stamps instead of bundles then Cheery Chirps would top my list along with a couple of others. Love those birdies. Reminds me of Carte Postale from years ago not to mention perfect for the blends.

Oh my. Too many favorites once again. Including ones not yet on my table but will be soon with a little luck.

Bless you for sharing the pumpkins Miss Patty. I found the kits in a perfect storage box, quite the thing to make up during hospital stays this last year. Not too difficult or tiring and perfect conversation starters not to mention giving you beautiful hand made cards or gifts for doctors, nurses and other staff to share my appreciation with.

So many fun comments to read and product to try. Thanks Miss Patty for starting the conversation.

Blessings - Jean

Paula Richards
