558 thoughts on “Happy New Year Blog Candy Giveaway!”

  1. I don’t make resolutions, but I do make plans. This year, I plan to use only the cardstock that I have on hand to make as many beautiful cards as possible before buying any new cardstock. I currently have no less than 3 crates of SU cardstock to choose from… this does not include my designer paper… which I plan to incorporate into the cards!

  2. I want to sent out my cards on time, and get my scrapbooks up to date.
    Clean my craft room , which is a on going thing

  3. I want to quit hording DSP. I have enough to paper all the walls in my house! I need to use it for making cards!

  4. My resolution for 2021 is to get out of the funk I am in and start making cards again and maybe, for the first time get the nerve to post something I made on one of the websites.

  5. My crafty resolution is to sit down in my craft room at least once a week. Sounds simple right? The problem is I hate stairs and my craft room is on the second floor. It’s a wonderful sanctary, and WHEN I GET THERE I have fun for hours, and don’t want to stop. I just have to overcome inertia and take myself there! My hope is that I’ll start with once a week and work up to more. Like with any successful change in behavior, I have to walk before I can run. Baby steps then, right up those darn stairs!

  6. To use each of my most disliked stamps on at least 10 cards apiece. Maybe my mind will be changed?

    Blessings for a happy and healthy new year to all!

  7. Just time to make more cards and use up my existing supply of card stock and ribbon.

  8. My goals are to get organized and have stamp time at least once a week. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas that you share.

  9. Happy New Year! My goal this year is to spend more time making cards , especially just because cards!

  10. This year I will be unpacking all of my craft supplies that have been stored in my basement since we moved to our new home. I will be organizing my craft room so I can get to and use all of my crafting goodies

  11. Looking forward to spending more time learning about and experimenting with new techniques to take my card making up several notches.

  12. Happy New Year, Mary! My paper crafting resolution is to make cards with (a) all the DSP I have been hoarding, (b) stamp sets, dies and punches that have never been used yet and (c) the Paper Pumpkin kits I have accumulated.

  13. Organize, organize, organize! Especially DSP and stamp sets by theme. Add in some purging also. It’s going to take some time, that’s for sure!

  14. I want to use some of the stamps and dies I have but haven’t used for awhile or at all!

  15. My resolution is to NOT HOARD PAPER AND EMBELLISHMENTS, to use the supplies that I have collected to spread happiness!

  16. In 2021 I’m hoping to do more card making, along with organizing my craft room. Thanks for all of your inspiration you provide to us. Happy New Year!

  17. In 2020 I was able to keep up with everyone’s birthday and anniversary cards, even get well and sympathy. This year, spend less, use what I have and practice more technique. Also, continue sending bday cards and more thinking of you cards. Thanks for your inspiration!

  18. In 2020 I was able to keep up with everyone’s birthday and anniversary cards, even get well and sympathy. This year, spend less, use what I have and practice more technique. Also, continue sending bday cards and more thinking of you cards.

  19. I’m a newbie to card creating and it has reignited my creative side. This new year, I will be sending my cards to our shut in members of our congregation and others in my community. I’ve battled cancer for over a year and have recently been told I’m almost in remission. I want to use this gift of time to reach out to others. They reached out to me through some very tough days where I was given little or no hope.
    It is my hope that my gift of time will lift one’s spirit.
    I love making cards!

  20. This year I plan on creating more cards for next Christmas gifts. This year I made over 400. I gave 21 cards to each of my family members a total of 20+ sets. Now I need to include my husbands family who have helped me thru his passing in Jan. 2019. I was only able to give them a few cards.

  21. Happy New Year,
    My plan is to get my craft room organized, good-bye for a little while Christmas stamps, so I can work more productively. I want to send more cards out to brighten someone’s day….we are all still stuck at home, right. I’d like to start selling my goodies, and plan to look into that. Good Luck everyone

  22. Really, send Three cards a week! So write down who I have sent these cards to, and keep it up. Don’t we all love getting a card in the mail??

  23. My paper crafting resolution is to use the new stamps and paper I got for Christmas BEFORE next Christmas. Between full time work, teaching dance classes, maintaining a household, and raising two sons with my husband, my crafting time has been limited. I’m trying to set aside time once a month to craft this year.

  24. I’m looking to get some dsp color organization done! Could you please tell me where I would find your DSP color coordinating charts?!
    Thank you!

  25. This year I will create cards to send “ just because “. Thank you for this opportunity.

  26. I want to do some of the great techniques I’ve learned at Lydia’s retreats. I look at the samples we did in the classes and just hope I can remember how to do them…

  27. I’d like to remember to use some of the great ideas I’ve saved and the papers I have on hand to make some eye popping creations!

  28. My New Year resolution for my cards, is to make them way before I need them. Maybe make a stock of neutral cards available too.

  29. My crafting goals are to schedule time every week to use products that have not been used and to finish moving in supplies to my ‘newish’ craft space. The second is my most daunting task.

  30. thanks Mary for a chance to win this fun SU set! I enjoy your card ideas and like that I can make them with your instructions easily. Fun folds and boxes are my favorites and I plan to do at least 1 new one of each of them each month. Your site is always good inspiration !
    thank you

  31. Thank you for making our 2020 bearable with your tips, techniques and craftiness! Look forward to more of Mary in 2021!

  32. My paper crafting goal for this year is to be more organized. Donate items I no longer use and then clean up and organized items in my stash. Love all the ideas I’ve gotten this past year on how to do that. Hope this will help me to reach my goal.

  33. My 2021 resolution is to have my CHRISTMAS cards done by September 30,2021 – designed/made/signed/sealed ready to post.

  34. I hope to continue learning new techniques and incorporate them into art beyond cards.

  35. Happy New Year! My craft resolution is to use my DSP and other supplies that I’m saving for a rainy day.

  36. My resolution is to make easier quicker cards so I am able to send even more. I think I have been making it to complicated. Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful set. Happy New Year.

  37. I am going to make more cards and organize my materials. I love sending cards to friends and my grandchildren! It puts smiles on their faces to receive fun mail!

  38. My downfall is keeping my space clutter free. I need to work on that and put tools away as I use them.

  39. OH, I know the answer to this one!! I have a rolling cart with lots of DSP. I’m going to make it my mission this year to truly use it and not save it because it’s too beautiful to use.

  40. I want to make more cards this year. I enjoy sending smiles. I also want my craft area well organized.

  43. My crafting goal this year is to send a birthday card to all my relatives. I do better some years than others. I want this year to be 100%!

  44. For 2021, I would first like to get my craft room organized and donate merchandise that I have held on to for many years without touching! Secondly, I would like to spend time working on my Christmas cards for next year using two holiday sets I deliberately did not use this season so I would not duplicate cards. Lastly, I would really like to send a LOT more cards to people to brighten their day to day life and let them know they are being thought of! If I can share the love of cardmaking with others, that would be an additional blessing!

  45. I want to organize my stamp sets. They are nicely in rows, just not in any particular order so it takes me a long time sometimes to find what I want and sometimes I forget what I have! I also need to start upgrading my inks and markers.

  46. For 2021 I need to make my Christmas cards throughout the year! I was in a funk this year and I did not get to make any Christmas cards! I did some paper crafting but sadly no cards! Love this set thanks for the chance to win. Happy New Year!!

  47. My New Year resolution is to redo my craft room so that I will have a place for everything and purge materials that I will not use. Once organized I plan to have cards ready to send out when special request are made for people who need cards to lift their spirits.

  53. For the new year I would love to use all of my stamping stuff more and be more organized and somehow carve out more time for stamping. Thank you for the chance to win and Happy New Year!

  55. In 2021 I have the desire to not only make a variety of cards but also mail more cards to family and friends! Prayers to you and your family for a healthy, happy and blessed 2021!

  56. My goal actually is to take a little time away from crafting and spend more time reading the Bible….I’d like to learn how to prioritize better and how to balance things better.

  57. To use the stamp sets I bought and haven’t used, stay more organized and find more time to work the first two items!!

  58. I’m currently organizing my craft room. And I’m hoping to get some more creative storage so I can keep everything tidy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  59. Happy New Year and thanks for the chance to win. I really need to purge a LOT, and use everything I buy before it retires. I get so sad when I see how much is left over and not used. The good thing is, I get to share those items with others.

  64. My 2021 creative resolution is……….take my time! I want to enjoy EVERY single moment of my creative experience. No politics, no negativity, no BS, just positive experiences each moment!

  65. Happy New Year! This year my Stampin goal is to use my stamp sets in new and unique ways.

    Having a husband with medical issues Time is limited

  71. My goal is to go through all my DSP and give away what I know I won’t use and then to make cards using what I have kept (for many years)..

    Happy New Year to you and thanks for all you share on your terrific blog!!!

  72. To continue making & sending cards to the elderly
    at my church, especially during the pandemic, when they feel so alone. I could use this set to make some different cards than the ones I’ve been making. It’s great knowing that something as simple as a card in the mail, brings such happiness to someone!

  73. Mary, my goal for 2021 is to stay organized and make cards before I need them. I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate the chance to win this bundle. Wishing for 2021 to be filled with peace, healing and revival.

  74. My resolution is to get more stamping done and on time. I’ve always loved your cards.

  75. My crafting resolution this year is to use the supplies I buy in a more efficient fashion. I’m going to try and focus on one bundle a week or two, that way I am putting my purchases to use. I bought too much from the holiday catalog and didn’t get to use it all.

  76. My creative/paper resolution is to use up my scraps and make more cards to send out. I also want to learn new techniques so my cards go from nice to Wow!

  77. To focus my time on making cards to donate rather than to sell. Sadly, people simply aren’t buying as many cards these days. But I know they’ll be a blessing to soldiers, people in nursing homes and others!

  78. For 2021 I want to finish the cards that I have put aside to finish later and still aren’t done. Keep a neater work space, and better organized.
    Happy New Year.

  79. I started today: using up old DSP and getting rid of stuff I’m not using, either by selling or giving it away.

  80. I’m resolving to use more DSP when I make my cards, as well as remembering to use some of my older sets in with the newer ones. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  81. My resolution is to use stamp sets that I have had for a while and not ever used.

  82. This year I would like to make extra cards to have on hand to use in a pinch. An organized craft space would go a long way to utilizing my stamping supplies towards that endeavor. Your space is an inspiration for all of us!

  83. To make cards for people and ‘actually’ send them out. I always forget to mail. Also, to use up as much of my paper without buying anymore unless necessary. I am “addicted” to buying paper and I have so much now it’s hard to comprehend!

  84. I would like to start making Christmas cards in January and make a stack every month so I’m ready to mail 100+ cards out in early December!

  85. My resolution for 2021 is to try new card folds. I watch tutorials and see cards on Pinterest but don’t always give them a try. This year I want to step up and try something different. I resolve this year to make more cards using new techniques and folds!

  86. Try more different color combinations. Arrange my DSP paper so it is easier to find.

  87. I want to have more cards on hand for special occasions so I am not rushing to make them at the last minute.

  92. I need to concentrate on using all of the stamp sets that I buy. Also, use use more of my DSP. There are so many nice things in the catalog to buy that I seem to never have enough time to use all that I purchased.

    Thank you for offering a really nice Su product giveaway.

  93. My 2021 year resolution will be to learn how to use the social media to teach carmaking online. I will need to learn what I need to get, how to start a blog and what I need to do to teach carmaking online. I know this will be very challenging for me! My goal for this year will be to learn how to get there!

  94. Of course, I want to reorganize my craft room, again . . . However, my biggest and most important goal is to rotate sending each of my twelve grandchildren a “just because” card every week. In these crazy times, it’s especially important for kids to never forget how much they are loved!

  95. I plan to be more organized and send more cards! Also plan to make cards that I have kits for.

  96. To get my craft room organized and keep it clean so I can craft. By clean I mean put tools away after using them. I know paper, my scissors and trimmer will be on the table but right now I need to get in a good mindset so I enjoy crafting again.I’m preparing for a blowout garage sale of my old unused products right now which I’m really excited about.. More on that later…

  97. I hope to be more organized in 2021 with my craft supplies. This will allow me more time to make more cards. I also plan to donate more cards to scrapingbook.com which sends those cards to various organizations.

  99. You are always such an inspiration – this new bundle looks like a “must have”. In the new year I plan to be more consistent in sending cards for any occasion. It does make a difference in the lives of others.

  100. Try to get my craft area more organized so I can be more creative with making my cards.

  101. My goals are to send more cards to charitable organizations and to use the beautiful DSP that I have ‘collected’.

  102. Happy New Year!! In 2021 I’m going to make and send 2 cards per week to someone else. My year of joy starts today!

  103. My crafty resolution for 2021 learn to improve my blending coloring. Love the Stampin blends but have problem bleeding color for more realistic coloring

  104. My goal this year is to plan ahead on birthdays and have cards ready to send so I’m not rushing around to make a card at last minute. This way I can enjoy my card making time. Thank you for your daily inspiration.

  105. Organize, organize, organize, trying to find the best way to organize to be able to get to everything in a small space. First step was stamp sets and dies & now everything else.

  106. My resolution is to make cards way before someone’s birthday and have them posted at least 3-4 days before their birthday.

  107. I want to get my stamp room organized and the non-stamping things moved out of it as much as possible.

  108. I need to weed out the stamp sets the I no longer use. I am also on the look out for new techniques. Happy new year to all.

  109. To use sets that I have never used before! I have so many, especially Sell-a-brations sets! and to get caught up on my Paper Pumpkin kits!!

  111. I am a paper hoarder so I need to use what I have before I buy more….. probably won’t happen because I love Stampin’ Up Designer Paper! Happy, Safe and Peaceful New Year to all!

  112. Mine is to make two versions of every card, and to use more DSP, it’s all so fun and beautiful, I should be sharing it in my cards!

  113. My plans for 2021 are to make eleven samplers for the remaining 8 x 10 frames I have, create and mail 100 cards to “Cards for Kindness”, and to send a birthday card to each family member and friend.

  114. This year I would really like to step up my basic cards by adding layers, embellishments and ribbon. Thanks for this chance to post & Happy New Year!

  115. Happy New Year!
    I really need to use some of the design paper that I have stashed. So many cards I want to make and send out for birthdays. Also would like to make a supply of sympathy and get well cards.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  116. Lots of goals:
    to get my 2018 album finished
    to begin and complete my 2019 album (maybe even get started on 2020).
    to build my card business (classes & card sales)
    to create my craft room.

  117. My goal is to set up a crafting room. I have so many supplies I have to hunt to find what I want. I have a room I can use but have to do some updating and adding shelves an storage. I lovve trying new techniques so look forward to see new ideas and trying them out

  118. I would love to spend more time making cards. I also need to get caught up on photos, somehow.

  119. My creative/paper crafting resolution for 2021 is to continue with the card ministry for my church. I am a “secret sister” who sends uplifting cards to the congregation whenever I feel the mood of the church is a little down. A couple of the ladies have guessed it is me (and are keeping my request to be anonymous secret) but most are still in the dark.

  120. I want to keep sending more cards. With the cold Winter months ahead and the beginning of a New Year . . . sharing a card “just because” hopefully will bring a little smile of heartfelt hope in 2021!

  121. I want to spend more time crafting in 2021 and hopefully will be able to craft with my girlfriends. That would be wonderful as we are all having withdrawals not being able to see each other.

  122. I am going to try to use more of my DSP. I have a box of it cut into rectangles sitting on my desk as a reminder. Happy New Year to you, Mary.

  123. One of my resolutions is to get back into sending lots of birthday cards this year. I think it could be good outreach to people who are looking for new indoor hobbies.

  124. Use the new dies and stamps I’ve purchased but never used. And do more stamping just for fun!

  125. My plan is to first organize my craft room since I have Christmas crafting items everywhere. Then I want to make a stash of all types of cards (birthday, sympathy, thanks, wedding, get well, etc.) So that I’m not scrambling when an event arises.

  126. For this new year- I am going to try to “use what I have!” Thank you for this generous giveaway! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

  127. What is your creative/paper crafting resolution for 2021?
    I have become overwhelmed with PAPER. So, I’ve cut volumes of paper to use in an instant. I’m determined to use the beautiful Designer Series Papers I’ve collected.

  128. I plan to use the first Tuesday of every month to make 8 Christmas cards…using a different stamp set every month. I am excited to send out ALL HANDMADE CARDS in 2021! Plus I plan to send at least 2 encouragement cards per week.

  129. I have so many crafty ideas to impliment in 2021…where to begin? Try out new techniques is on the top of the list along with being more creative with what I already have instead of always ‘casing’. Love coloring and colors but I also want to focus more on monochrome colorations.

  130. Set aside more “me time” to craft and enjoy sending out more cards to friends and family!

  131. Happy New Year of 2021 Mary! Thank you so very much for all of your help in sharing your creativity with all of us. I hope we all continue our individual creativity through this new year!

  132. I want to make more sympathy cards ahead of time, so when the need arises I am prepared!

  133. My goal for the New Year is to be ahead of the game. Make Birthday cards a minimum of 1 month in advance. Holiday cards, start in August. Just be better organized. I love making cards, tags and scrapbook pages but I always put it off until I am making them in a rush and not truly enjoying the journey.

  134. This is the year I will use all the designer paper I’ve been hoarding. Why do I do this?

  135. My New Year crafting resolution is to get organized. I got a label maker for Xmas and purchased magnetic sheets and folders for my dies. Thanks for the inspiration❣️

  136. My resolution is twofold, first – use at least one stamp set in it’s entirety each week (I have a lot of sets so it’s going to take a long time to get through them all) in addition to any new ones I purchase and two – try some new things in addition to stamping/papercrafting at least once/month.

  137. Last year during the pandemic I utilized a lot of my inventory to make cards for my friend who always writes such thoughtful notes, for my mom & 1 of my sisters. My goal this year is to do the same for my other sister & sister-in-law. So thankful to be able to spread the cheer!

  138. My resolution this year is to use ALL my Stampin’ Up! stamp sets to make cards and crafts before the sets are retired. I have too many that are sitting on my shelf and have never been used.

  139. I must get my studio under control. It is unmanageable at the moment, and it’s time to get organized and make better use of my space. That starts today! I plan to start the New Year off right. 🙂

  140. My New Year resolution is to craft more often and use more of what I have instead of buying new and making sure to put everything back in its place after I’ve used it.

  141. I hope to make more cards and mail more too. I love this plaid maker set and can find lots of ways to use it. Love Stampinup.

  142. Love those designs, and love this set! My NYR is to take better care of me and not letting others take over my life. I need to be a better caregiver to myself since that has fallen to the wayside the past couple years.

  143. My Resolution is to be better prepared by getting various cards ready before I need them instead of scrambling at the last minute. 😉

  144. Trying new techniques and having plenty of cards on hand for any short notice occasions.

  145. As always – to get more organized! I make small steps through the years. This year I want to work on my dies

  146. My goal is to go through my stash of stamp sets and make two cards from each one. I will be utilizing some for the first time and feel it’s the best way to be familiar with what you have.

  147. Getting my craft room cleaned and organized so that I can use more of what I have.

  148. This year I want to be more creative with my dsp and to ‘spend some time’ with each of my stamp sets designing new cards with them

  149. My new years crafting resolution is to send alot more cards. I make tons of them but don’t seem to send many out. I also want to get my cards in a couple more stores to sell.

  150. I plan to work on better water coloring & to use the new stamps & dies that are calling for some attention!

  151. To learn new Techniques for stamping and designing cards . And to donate some of my older stamp sets.

  152. Because I do not have room for a dedicated craft room I plan on finding a better organization method for all my Stampin Up supplies in order to help me spend more time being creative rather than wasting time looking for supplies I can’t remember where I put them!!

  153. To make more cards this year and to use more of mu stuff up before I buy more.

  154. To make and send more cards. Because of the 2020 lock down I did do more in 2020 that I had done in the past. So my goal is to continue to that.

  155. My goal is to make a greater VARIETY of cards. (I make so many birthday and “thank you” cards, and I need to have others on hand like sympathy, get well soon, wedding/anniversary, congratulations, graduation…)

  156. I hope to work on my scrapbooks more this year. Love reading your posts. You are such an inspiration.

  157. I want to get through all my unfinished Paper Pumpkin kits and tap into my creativity to use up all the ‘leftover’ parts–not just save them for a rainy day!

  158. I want to find more time for card making. As a full time caregiver it is always a time and energy challenge.

  159. Happy New Year! I have found paper crafting this year as a stress reliever and an outlet for creativity. To boost my spirits and hopefully health care workers I have sent the cards to the hospital and nursing homes. I have found your site and love the beautiful cards you make. The instructions have been great, projects approachable and the results satisfying. My plan is to continue this practice, especially for the nursing homes where there is so much isolation. Along the way, I intend to challenge myself with different coloring techniques and developing perspective. I am not really artistic so the ideas and instructions are fantastic. Thanks for asking.

  160. Ok…seriously I’ve never been much of the “plaid-loving” kind of girl…BUT the cards you made with this set are SERIOUSLY CUTE!!! Who knew?! Thanks for the inspiration! Happy New Year!

  161. I hope to send more cards each week, especially to charities and card drives. I’d also like to learn one new technique each month.

  162. I can just see all the great cards I could make with this set! Thanks for giving me a chance to win. Happy New Year. See

  163. Happy New Year! My goal is to make all of my Christmas cards this year and have them done before Thanksgiving!

  164. My goal this year is to take 12 stamp set (one a month) that I have, and never have used, make 10 cards that month and send them out. I then will treat myself to a New Stamp set every three months if I accomplished my goal!!!

  165. Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing all your wonderful creations with us! I’m always on the hunt to try new things, so this year, my creative/paper crafting resolution is to learn more techniques. This is a great giveaway. Thank you for a chance to win.

  166. Organization! I want to stop using my craft table as a catch all for junk and keep a clear, open space to work as well as keeping my supplies readily available. I’m disabled and can’t get up and down a lot so I need all my supplies where I can reach them.

  167. Happy New Year! Hoping 2021 will bring peace, good health, much wealth, and happiness to all. Less stress will mean more time to do the things we love; like play with all our SU products. Thank you for providing us with so much inspiration and always great ideas.

  168. My resolution for 2021 is to make cards for each individual at our local nursing home. Some of them have no families and I’m sure they are lonesome. For each of the holidays I will make each person a card and maybe bring a little joy or happiness to them.

  169. My resolve for the coming year is to use more DSP in my cards. Stampin Up papers are so pretty, I buy them but tend to not use them. I want to make using them a high priority in 2021. This bundle, lends itself to this goal & I appreciate the opportunity to win. Thanks Mary.

  170. In 2021 I hope to use more of my embossing folders, dies and embellishments. I often forget that I have such a wonderful supply of these items. Let the creativity begin!!

    The Best Year Bundle would be an awesome addition to my craft room.

  171. Happy New Year!

    I would really like to be more creative using the water painters and sponging/blending techniques to create backgrounds.

    Thanks so much for your inspiration!

  172. I want to reorganize my patterned paper for easier use and also to finish my grabdson’s scrapbook!

  173. For 2021, I am going to make a lot more Stampin Up cards. I plan to make stock piles of “Thank You” cards, so I always have something .

  174. Get my boxes of cards organized by subject matter to easily locate a card I want to send to someone.

  175. Mary – at first I thought I would not jump into this post this time but have made a change of mind. When 2020 went difficult we were encouraged by our church leaders to keep in touch with others in our church family, especially the older members of our family. I made several phone calls but ultimately thought that I could make cards and send them leaving them with something to look back at and remember that someone cared enough to send them a card. WOW did that ever turn out to be a big job, but one I truly enjoyed. Think I have slacked off some but with a new year and much to look forward to I am making cards on at least a weekly basis and in many cases for than that. Your Candy Blog offer would really be a help to me in this activity. Thanks to you.

  176. I am going to try to relax more while making cards and not be so perfectionistic and afraid of trying something new and making mistakes which stresses me out.

  177. My goal this year is to designate 2 days to stamp and learn how to video and more social media. I have sent cards at random times to a local hospice organization but I am going to try and do this monthly. Already organized my craft room after Christmas, I just need to keep it that way!

  178. I’ve already started cleaning and reorganizing my space. I’m committed to set one evening a week to FaceTime with my sister in another state to create cards!

  179. My goal is to be more organized with my crafting supplies so I’m not spending time looking for items when I go to stamp! My mom is 101 so I’ve had to bring my stamp supplies upstairs when I need them so I can be near her when I stamp so it’s important I keep things in order!

  180. My “card room” is a very small space, actually a storage closet, so the first thing I need to do is straighten up and get it more organized. Hope to start today because I’m ready to create!

  181. With a new year on the horizon, full of hope and expectation, for many challenges still remain. I would love to send more cards to those who still face these challenges. Maybe a single card with a heartfelt message will encourager or enlighten someone to keep on going or keep on fighting until the race is won. Thank you, Mary, for all your inspiration in the paper craft industry!

  182. My paper crafting resolution for 2021 is to make/send fancier cards!
    Well, once I get my craft room organized…that was my 2020 resolution…lol

  183. My paper rafting resolution for 2021 is to use the new products I bought in 2020! Such as the gel press, watercolors, and many stamp & die sets.
    There are also new techniques to try that I just haven’t made time for yet. Happy New Year!

  184. To share my love of crafting by giving away more cards. I need to do some organizing and let go of items I am not going to use.

  185. I have already reorganized and donated Stampin’ Up items I no longer use to our church school and stamped New Year’s cards to send out this weekend. This year gave me a renewed understanding of how important our cards are to friends and relatives. They are made with love and sent with love.
    Thank you, Mary, for your continued creative inspiration.

  186. I have plenty of UFO’s ( Un-finished-obects). How about you? Last week I crushed my Christmas UFO’s and made all my cards for 2021, and then some, over 75. Now I’m on to all occasion ones. It will free up space for new ideas!

  187. Make more masculine cards. I always seem to gravitate to the feminine but this year I’m going to make more cards for the guys in my life.

  188. My goal is to try new techniques. There are so many designs to investigate!!! Plus, need to color coordinate my Stampin’ refills! I better get busy::::::

  189. Over 2019 and 2020, I have put together several kits of 20-60 cards each with all the stamping, die cutting, and paper cutting done! My resolution this day is to get all those cards assembled and finished this year before working on anything new.

  190. I definitely need a plan to Organize my stamp sets. Also to find a way for all my accessories. Any help is welcome.

  191. My resolution is not only to make more cards but to send and share with others more often. In these crazy times, think of how blessed you are and remember those who may not be. The hand of friendship is always welcome.

  324. For 2021 I want to make more cards to donate to nursing homes as well as my local food bank who were appreciative of the 200 cards I made for Thanksgiving and Christmas to go in their food bags for the needy.

  325. I will continue to make “thinking of you” cards for my older relatives and friends who need a day brightener.

  326. For 2021 I hope to use up more of the DSP and cardstock that I have to create cards sets to give out as gifts. Also to just send more cards out to family and friends to let them know how special they are!

  329. I have several crafting goals: to get my craft room better organized, learn new techniques and make & send more cards! Thank you for your motivation

  330. Making and sending more cards out to people I’m not getting to see is a goal I have. But first I must reorganize my space. It has gotten messy during the holidays.

  331. I want to try more coloring with stamping blends. I have watched a few videos and ready to go. Happy New Year Maty.

  332. Make more cards !!! 🙂 Giving and sending a handmade card is the best way to surprise and delight my family and friends. It make me so happy each & every time they open the envelope 😉

  333. My goal for 2021 is to practice my coloring and the new blending brushes should help me make better backgrounds. Organizing my studio is always on my list. Thanks, Mary, for a chance to win this bundle, and Happy New Year to you.

  334. My resolution is to finish all my unfinished cards and reorganize all of my paper. Happy New Year everyone!

  335. I want to make and send more cards in 2021. I also need to reduce my paper stash – OH BOY!! Do I ever!! I’d like to have more friends to my house to make cards as last year it was almost impossible!

  336. my resolution, craft wise, for 20121 is to use up…well almost all, of THREE of my DSP paper packs. If I do that..I might add THREE more

  337. I am resolved to spend more creative and productive time in my craft room than this past year…….too many things happened that interfered. Time to make happy changes!

  338. This year I want to make more cards and send them out. If for an occasion, I want to send them out so the recipient will get my card on or before the date. I always love receiving a handmade card. I want to send and share my love of cardmaking with my family and friends.

  339. To get in the habit of making two cards, one to send to someone I know and one to send to someone I don’t know. Words of encouragement are always welcomed in hospitals and nursing homes ( paper pumpkin cards are great for this and all the supplies are used up !)

  340. For my crafty New Year, I want to make at least one card per day and to try to use the stamps/papers that I ‘had to have’ that are waiting for some love!!
    Thanks for a chance to win this bundle.

  341. This year My goal is to organize my card making stuff so I can find it easily and to keep making cards for family and friends.

  343. Happy New Year Mary! I would love this set you are giving away. I need to get my stamps and dies organized and update my book of stamped sentiments. I keep a “directory” of my word stamps so when I need to use one, it’s easy to choose.

  344. I always love to try new techniques. I’m going to try at least one new technique and one new card fold each month.
    Thanks for all your tips and tricks and a chance to win new toys.

  345. I don’t know if it’s a resolution but I am going to get a new craft table and storage units.

  346. This year my resolution is to rehome stamps that no longer use. Organize my craft room so that I can enjoy being in there.

  347. I have been told that resolutions are made to be broken so I am submitting more then one to be sure and hit one. Use some of these supplies that have never been used or saw ink. Work on getting better at my colouring/blending. Actually sending cards instead of stock piling them. And that’s just what immediately comes to mind.
    Happy New Year

    • A goal of mine is to finish the ‘almost done’ cards and use up the bits & pieces that are left over & end up in a pile! They seem to multiply like crazy! Also, not to save every scrap (“I might need it someday..”) as I know, there will be more! Thanks Mary.

  378. I hope to make more masculine cards, I am really bad at this so I am going to try harder to work on them.

  379. Love your blog for daily inspiration! This year I hope to be both more organized and more productive! Fingers crossed that I can come close to achieving both those goals.
