We are only 8 days into the new Stampin' Up! calendar year, and I'm fairly certain that I have already gone through the brand new Idea Book and Catalog cover to cover at least 100 times. :) It's full of tags marking my favorite project ideas, new stamp sets and accessories that I've added to my wish list. I thought you might enjoy a break down of my top ten favorite new stamp sets...which you'll be seeing lots of projects with these stamp sets in the near future. So, without further adieu, here are my favorite stamp sets, in no particular order:
1. Turtle & Co--When I saw the adorable little frog in this stamp set, I let out a squeal. He is so cute I just want to pinch his cheeks, and would be great for a child's birthday card or a friend who loves frogs. Plus, BONUS! When you purchase this stamp set, $3 of the cost goes to the Ronald McDonald House, a fantastic organization.
