So without further ado....
The Top Ten (or so) Products from the 2014 Occasions Catalogue:
1. Top Design Series Paper: This one was easy ....
- Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper - 132994 $13.50 Every single one of these designs are gorgeous, watercolour magic! And the colours are amazing!
2. Top Stamp Set: This category was tough. I had to choose between my favourite and the most versatile. I picked my favourite, but with a nod to Peaceful Petals as a bit more versatile.
3. Top Specialty Paper: No contest here. This paper is beautiful and has all sorts of applications when metallics are so on trend these days.

- Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum -133364 $13.50 for 9 sheets: 3 each of 3 designs
4. Top Ribbon: I've been waiting for this ribbon soooo long! I just hope they'll come out with more colours soon.

- Summer Starfruit 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon - 132980 - $12.50 for 10 yards
5. Top Bundle: Again, this was hard to pick because there are so many great bundles to choose from, but I picked this one because I'm tired of cutting banners by hand and I love having these framelits.
- Perfect Pennants Wood-Mount Bundle - 134815 - $59.50 - 15% savings
- Perfect Pennants Clear-Mount Bundle - 134816 - $50.95 - 15% savings
6. Top Embossing Folder: This one will work well with all the Grunge style projects that are so popular now. (Note: It was not available for pre-order, so I hope it is ready for purchase now.)
- Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - 132187 - $9.95
7. Top Punch: I was tricky here, because along with the punch, I was able to squeeze in another bundle I liked, with it's stamp set.
- Petite Petals Wood-Mount Bundle - 134821 - $30.50 15% savings
- Petite Petals Clear-Mount Bundle - 134822 - $26.25 15% savings or just the punch by itself:

8. Top Kit: Again, it was a contest between my favourite and my most versatile and this time, versatile won although you need all the components beyond the basic kit to take advantage of that versatility. I've made delightful cards and tags with the materials in the Add On kits. (But I will give a nod to my favourite Burlap And Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit.)

9. Top Background Stamp: Well, the only background stamp, but it's very nice! It's along the same lines as the background in Truly Grateful.
These make quite large flowers but you can trim the width and length of the spiral to make smaller ones as well.
And last but not least:
10. Top Value: No doubt about it, this is a great deal.
- Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack - 132996 - $8.50 for 48 sheets of 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper: 4 each of 12 double sided designs.
