Surround Yourself with Awesome in 2020

CatherineCP Designs

Welcome to 2020, my friends! I have this sign in my office and it makes everyone laugh since there isn't enough room for all of the words and I was short an “s”!

It reminds me of one of my favorite mottos to “surround yourself with those that bring out the best in you.” I love this motto for the people I have in my life but also love it when it comes to our product line. It is always my goal to make products that are just plain awesome!

I have to love it and then always hope you will too! So to reflect on all the awesomeness from 2019, we pulled some of our top-selling products from 2019 and shared them live on YouTube to take a closer look.

Here is a quick peek at all of those goodies!

Birds and Blooms

In 2019 we introduced some of our very first “critters” in the form of some tropical and fat and fluffy birds…and they were a hit! You love Toucan Do It and Fluttering Friends and we are delighted by it.

Cottage Corsage and Bloomin' Happy were two of your favorite floral sets. Florals are always a hit and really are staple image sets. They work so well for so many occasions.

Backgrounds Galore

Background stamps were very popular in 2019. Color-in ready Rondi's Window and Cottage Garden were two big hits. No one would be surprised that the Buffalo Plaid was a huge favorite as is Sketch Plaid, that just released in December. These two are loaded with texture and create versatile patterns for card layering.


You guys love a good stencil. Fantastic for ink blended backgrounds or accents or more advanced mixed-media, stencils are a must have. Your favorites were the Twisted Sunburst, Flourish & Whimsy and Bear Grass Stencils.

Cover Plates

2019 brought in some fabulous Cover Plate Dies. The Chevron Divide offered a unique layout and pattern and is amazing for inlaid die cutting.

Your other fav was the Starry Night Cover Plate. This one was a perfect addition to our holiday collection but will find itself on so many card designs for years to come!

Sentiment Sets

For me, you can never have enough sentiment sets! You love the Awesome & Wonderful Stamp Set designed to layer words and create a multitude of sentiment combos. It was made to mix and match with our Awesome and Wonderful Word Dies as well! The Layered Greetings stamp set (a Club Sursee exclusive) was also made to, well…layer! These simple phrases add the perfect pop to finish off you card.

Word Dies

Honestly, who doesn't love a good word die? In 2019 we upped our creative game with the Well, Hey There! Hexagon and the Hello Mini Cover Plate combining words with shape dies for added layering options.

The classic Hello Die is a top seller as are the Ways to Say Hey Dies which brought some everyday phrases attached to a line.

Other Favorites…

A few other favorites stood out as unique pieces. The Interlocked Die is a big bold mandala piece that was used in some pretty phenominal ways. You also loved the innovative Marble Swirl Stamp Set and the mix-and-match buildability of the Hex Marks the Spot Stamp Set and complimenting Cabana Tiles Dies.

Finally, the best seller from our holiday collection….drum roll please, The Man with the Bag Stamp Set! This adorable and whimsical set of Santa bears and hats with smartly placed sentiments was just oh-so-much fun to play with. Ho! Ho! Ho!

So that wraps up the top-sellers from 2019!! If you see something you didn't grab up, pop over the shop and get it today.
