By Wendy | December 3, 2018 | 0 Comments

It’s time to start counting down to the new 2019 Stampin’ UP! Occasions catalog. I LOVE this catalog.  There are so many adorable stamp sets and framelit sets in the new catalog. The next event we celebrate after Christmas (at least in the US) is Valentine’s Day.
