My head get turned when a new catalog comes out.

Now I can delve into the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and the Carryover List from the 2017 Holiday Catalog . . . and there will soon be a list of Carryover items from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

Before we know it, the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog will be coming out with new items and perhaps some items from the carryover lists. For now it is anyone’s guess what will carry over into the new annual catalog. I’m very much looking forward to the new items. I truly get excited about new Stampin’ Up!® products I can use and perhaps combine with some older but current products.

We have April and May, 2018, before the new annual catalog is launched.

I can pretty much create birthday cards for the coming months to send out.

I can get a few holiday cards completed and ready to go out in the fall and coming winter.

That is something I can truly rely upon . . . the days, weeks, months and seasons will continue if I’m ready or not . . . so, it’s important for me to get ready!

Here are some links celebrating birthdays:


It seems we make more birthday cards and celebrate more birthdays than perhaps the combination of holiday cards. Perhaps this is just my family . . . but I think it may be true for most . . .

I added a few guy-themed stamp sets just for good measure to create some cards for the men in your life.

I’m confident there are a few stamp sets you will find very useful in your card making and other projects.

I do thank you for stopping by!
