The following is a list of My Favorite Things (all new products) in the Stampin’ Up! 2016-17 Annual Catalog which began June 1.  It’s never easy to narrow down my favorites.  However, I hope this list is helpful and includes what I believe will be popular, versatile and smart additions to your paper crafting supplies.
