Please feel free to leave comments as we all love to hear from you.

When I fist opened the 2016 Occasions Catalog, I was instantly drawn to everything on page 10 and 11! The bundle shown in this section is the Numbers of Years Stamp set and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies.
Oh how I have been longing for some large numbers and matching dies to cut them out with! (I hope it stays in the new Stampin' UP catalog coming in June 2016!) What I love about this bundle is the versatility of it...Birthday, Anniversary, School Album, etc. But what I also love is that it can go from a kid's card to a card for a woman OR man too! Each project on these pages in the Occasions catalog give inspiration for this bundle and it inspired me to case/create these three cards.
Here is my card for a woman:
Here is my card for a man:
(the stripes on the balloon were made by the banner lines criss-crossed to make a pattern)
Here is my card for a kid:
(the confetti on card layer were made with the 1/4" circle handheld punch)
Thank you for joining me here today!
