  1. I love the covers on both catalogs!!

  2. Woo Hoo- It’s exciting to see the new catalog covers. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s new for stamping cards and scrapbook pages. Looks like soft pastels on the new covers, which I love. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh how I wish I could have been at the main stage event but my granddaughter was getting married in Hawaii and we did not get home until the morning of the 14 on a red eye and there is no way I could drive almost 200 miles on no sleep and get there on time. I am so jealous of you and everyone that got to be at at the event. It was a difficult choice granddaughters wedding or main stage. So I guess you can tell which one one out. I hope I get to see the catalog in full soon. Thanks for sharing!!!

  4. Looks like we have some very nice items coming from SU. Thank you for all you share.

  5. I really love your videos, thanks for the Sale-a- brat ion sneak peek!!!!
