  1. Barbara Riefner

    Boy, Finn can find fun in almost anything!!! How cute.

    • stampsnlingers

      He sure can, Barbara! He’s always good for a smile! 🙂

  2. Lynda Goff

    I would like to have the dies for the new frog stamps available again.

  3. Linda Blair

    I don’t understand Mary. This is April and you said leave a comment by March 9

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL! I’m losing my brain! I fixed it, Linda – thanks for the heads-up! It should have been 9 APRIL! 🙂

  4. Dianne Stoudt

    The stitched rectangles are great so I would like to see stitched ovals and circles as well.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – with the double stitching – that would be cool, Dianne! 🙂

  5. Kate

    Hmmm…like those. Now if only I thought I would actually DO it…😕

  6. Debbie Lindauer

    The tool caddy for sale to customers like the stamparatus bag.

  7. Well, Mary, there are lots of things I would like to see in the new catty, but I know they won’t be there. So, that said, I really would like to see Wood Textures in 12″ x 12″ size, especially the whitewashed one.
    and, I hope they don’t get rid of Lovely as a Tree.

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL! And yes yes YES to 12×12 Wood DSP – especially the whitewashed one!! 🙂

  8. JRGH

    I would like to see type of stamping platform, that is raised up 1/2 or so off my desk to help keep the clutter from my desk getting in my work space and also have a area to put ink, that I could use for water coloring etc.

  9. Linda Williams

    I live this Paper Pumpkin!

  10. Faith Simpson

    In the new catalog I would like to see stamps related to music, especially piano.

  11. Maryanne Willequer

    I would love to see more large-scale flower stamps in the upcoming annual catalog. You see a lot of them being used on both YouTube and Pinterest. SU had a couple of really great large flower stamps in this past Occasions catalog, but we need to see more of theme!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – I’m always a fan of more flowers – especially big ones to color with Blends! 🙂

  12. Donna

    You asked for ideas. I would like to see a bundle that is geared to golf female.
    Most golf oriented stuff I see is male.

  13. Lila

    I would like to see more stamps related to dogs of different breeds.

    • stampsnlingers

      Me, too! Finn would be more than happy to be a model for the Aussie stamp!! 🙂

  14. Beth Kist

    The more I sit here and think the more I come up with, so here goes with my first thoughts! I would like to see some Hanukkah stamps and dies. SU used to have some a little while ago but now just seems to have the Happy Hanukkah sentiment. I think I’d also like to see some fireworks stamps and a stamp with either single or double lines of music (instead of the current whole large stamp of music).

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh yes – all excellent ideas!! Love the idea of more music stamps! Thanks, Beth! 🙂

  15. I hope they continue he wood texture D.S.P. I seem to use it a lot.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – I love that paper, too, Linda! 🙂

  16. Carol C.

    I would just LOVE to see a whole set of stamps designated to a GET WELL message. I make cards
    for our church and need some new encouraging get well messages and images. Love your blog. You are so creative. your doggie is adorable too.

    • stampsnlingers

      Agree! Fun ones – serious ones – all sorts of Get Well sentiments. Thanks, Carol! 🙂

  17. Kathy Beemer

    Great giveaway. I’d like to see more sentiment stamps.

  18. Patty S. of Ohio

    Got to love Paper Pumpkin! I’d really really like to see more variety in envelopes. I make a lot of cards and get tired of having to purchase my envelopes someplace else! Be nice if they brought back the Vanilla and maybe a light grey?

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Patty – we’ve still got Vanilla! Are you hoping for different sizes? I wish they’d bring back the plain envelope paper, too! 🙂

  19. Carole Fish

    I would love to have a set of dance stamps; ballet, tap, hip hop in the new catalog. I need them for my granddaughters cards and albums; they all dance!

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh – those WOULD be fun! Great idea, Carole! 🙂

  20. In the new catalog I would like to see more punches. SU used to a lot more punches. Some fancy punches like they make with the dies and framelits.

    It is much easier for me to find the right size of punch to use for my sentiment instead of looking through my dies to find the right one.

    I have never used the paper pumpkin kits. This sounds like it would be a lot faster making some cards from the kit. I didn’t realize there are stamps in the kits also.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes ma’am!! Each kit has an exclusive stamp set – so you can use it to put the kit together and then you’ve got it to make any other projects you like!! And when you sign up – you even get an acrylic block with your first kit!! I agree – I LOVE punches and would like to have more!! 🙂

  21. Lisa Edwards

    Ooo, this Paper Pumpkin would be SO FUN!! Thanks for the doggie post!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Lisa – and you’re welcome! 🙂

  22. Vicki Frakes

    Sentiments, sentiments, and get well sentiments. And, a stamp set that goes together quickly for CHEERIE get well SENTIMENTS.

  23. Hi Mary! I would like to see the lily and frog framelits return.

  24. Karen L

    Well, I am looking forward to the new catalogue. I would like to see some humorous sentiments for adults & more matching outside-inside sentiments. Maybe even a few more masculine stamps, although they have been pretty good with some very nice masculine stuff lately. Masculine cards are always difficult to manage. I like to send funny cards once in a while……Art Impressions has some very nice images & sentiments. Hope the job goes well & times goes quickly till we can see some new Finn antics. Thanks for blogging & the great ideas.

    • stampsnlingers

      I think there may be some masculine-appropriate goodies coming out! And yes – more sentiments is always good! Thanks for the kind words, Karen! 🙂

  25. Valerie Pass

    I’m always looking for cute birthday designer papers

    • stampsnlingers

      Fingers crossed for something along those lines in the new catty, Valerie! 🙂

  26. Angie

    I NEED the frog dies – dang, I waited just a day too long! I’m still loving the star pattern in Twinkle Twinkle. I’d like to see more of that and a pack of all kinds of sky patterns – night, day, sunset, etc. I’m not sure if I’d really like them, but I think I’d like dies that cut exactly around a stamped design, instead of with an edge . . .

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes, me, too – dies that don’t leave a border! And the pack of paper you’re describing sounds awesome! 🙂

  27. Gloria Goller

    I would like to see an all over heart embossing folder, not with descending hearts, scattered, or falling hearts. There may have been one previously, but I’m fairly new to collecting Stampin Up products.

    • stampsnlingers

      I think we did used to have one like that, Gloria! 🙂 Thanks! 🙂

  28. Dianne Stoudt

    I was sorry that I missed the call me cupcake thinlits so it would be the icing on the cupcake if they were offered in the annual catalog. I’m just saying, but I’m sure many others feel the same or else they would not have sold out so quickly.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – they were really popular! Thanks, Dianne! 🙂

  29. Carole Doody

    One of the things I’d love to see is more coordination between stamps and punches or Thinlits and DSP, like they had in the Occasions catalog and sale a Bration catalogs.I love what they did this spring with the butterfly gala suite. I didn’t get a chance to get all of the things I wanted before the end of saleabration, but I did get some of the paper, and now that the punch is back in stock I will get that and the stamps too. I love that so many things can be used together in a suite. Makes all of them so much more versatile.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – I really liked that, too! Punches especially!! 🙂

  30. Jeannette Haynes

    I sure hope both the Tea Time Framelits Dies (SAB pg 17)) that match the Tea Together stamp set (OC pg 49) are in the new annual catalog! Unfortunately, I missed out on the SAB dies. As others have said, I also would like to see more get well sentiments. And I hope there’s more Gingham Gala DSP.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes! Gingham Gala would be awesome! And – the Tea Time Framelits WILL be in the annual catalog – SU! already told us that. So…Whoo-hoo!! 🙂

  31. Paula Poindexter

    I’ve been loving the horse stamps. And hope they give us cow stamps. My son is raising two cows and I thought it would be nice to have a few cow stamps.
    Old Finn photos are better than no Finn photos Mary. Thanks for sharing him with us.

    • stampsnlingers

      It’s like a stroll down memory lane for me, Paula! He was so little!! And fuzzy!! 🙂 Thanks much – fingers crossed for cows! 🙂

  32. Glendel Williams

    I would like the Wood textures DSP in 12×12

  33. Karen

    I am still hoping to see Bella and Friends in the new catalog. That stamp set is so cute and adorable. Love it!!

    • stampsnlingers

      It sure is! Thanks, Karen – and fingers crossed! 🙂
