It's one of the most anticipated times of year for Stampin' Up! when the new Annual Catalog, loaded with fantastic artistic stamps sets, is released. The 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is coming your way at the end of this month and the products will be available starting 04-MAY-2021. If the cover is any indication, we are in store for really amazing products for us to use on our projects!
With that said, it's time for me to share a little teaser from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to show off what's coming. This is an example of a quick and simple card that spotlights the fabulous new Stampin' Up!

YouTube Videos Coming Mid-April 2021
We all love watching our favorite video content on YouTube and if you're anything like me, you have quite a few crafters that you watch regularly. I hope that I become one of your favorites.
My YouTube channel is up and I'm collecting followers in advance of my first video publication happening the week of April 12th, 2021. Please consider subscribing and hitting the notifications bell so you're one of the first viewers to welcome me into the YouTube demonstration and tutorial world. If the notifications bother you, by all means turn them off...but consider keeping them on for the month of April as I'm more likely to go live or post premiere videos (with live chat w/me) outside a regular schedule. =)
