    Michele L says:

    It’s a tough one but I resolve to not buy any designer paper for 2012. I have at least a two year supply. Now stamps and dies are a completely different story. I wouldn’t be able to last without purchasing some.

    Gladys says:

    I would love to be able to publish my card in magazine! Hope this will come true! πŸ™‚

    DeLisa says:

    I need to focus on my scrapbooking and not so much card making. Plus I need to use the “inventory” I have before buying a lot more. Except PTI of course! πŸ˜‰

    Lou says:

    I have two – I want to sell cards to make money for charity (aiming for $1000 by the end March). The second resolution is to scrapbook more pages – sadly my 3rd daughter has only one page and she is nearly 10 months old!

  • 5
    Lousette says:

    My craft resolution is to surf less and craft more. I spend more time looking at blogs than I do actually crafting. Fabulous release as always!

  • 6

    oh yes… mine is to go through all of my supplies and purge some of the things that i will probably never use…i really need to develop a better organizational plan as well! pinterest is giving me lots of fab ideas! xxo

    I need to get back into scrapbooking and I also started a blog so I want to keep up on that.

  • 10
    Sallie says:

    No, I have learned over my many years NOT to make resolutions, craft or otherwise…….because usually by mid-February they are thrown to the wind. Guess this puts me in the “do not pick bin”. : (

  • 11
    PF Goh says:

    I would like to reorganise my craft space and make at least one card a week. That is my craft resolution!

  • 12
    Patty Chalas says:

    I would send cards to magazines until I get publish one of them in magazine! And that I will use all of the stash of paper and so, before buying more… of course dies and stamps are of that list!!

  • 13
    Deb F. says:

    I want to get my crafting space better organized (and keep it that way). Secondly, my goal is at least one card a day.

  • 14
  • 15
    Heidi says:

    My craft resolution is to get more organized. Out with the old in with the new and use Copic Markers more often. PTI designers are the best!! Look forward to 2012..

  • 16
    Jaclyn Neff says:

    I need to get back to scrapbooking! My little one is 20 months & I am so far behind, I think I last scrapped his 10 month pictures. I need to get caught up!

    Yes, my crafty resolution is to get my craft room organized and use the wonderful product I have. I would also love to do something crafty everyday.

    Ann Alyea says:

    I want to make more cards to have on hand when I need them. It seems as though I am always having to make a card the day I need it. I want to have more ready to go.

  • 19
    Ange Kelly says:

    I would like to find the time to comment on all of the fabulous creations I see!

  • 20
    Lori Campbell says:

    My craft resolution is to have my cards ready (card made, addressed with postage) a month in advance of when I need them. If I succeed, this may be the first year ever that I manage to pull off sending Christmas cards!

  • 21

    Use more of my stash. I seem to hoard pretty things like buttons, vintage bits and trims. And I hate using them. But what’s the point of having them and not using them?

  • 22
    Laura says:

    Yes, my craft resolution is to stock my shelves with cards ready to send. I will be making one sentiment/theme each month.

  • 23
    Mary M. says:

    I’d like to try some new techniques.

  • 24
    Trace Holdyk says:

    On the top of my craft list would have to be to get organised and stay organised. Easier said than done. I think thats been on the top of my to do list for years. Thanks for the chance.
    Love me πŸ™‚

  • 25
    Dee in N.H. says:

    My resolution was to go through the crafty stuff that hasn’t seen the light of day in a couple years. I then want to take anything that isn’t my style anymore and offer it up to new crafters. Then whatever is left will go to Goodwill. I have tons of paper and stuff that really needs to go. Hopefully I can make some new crafters really happy!

  • 26
    Victoria h says:

    My resolution is to buy lots more PTI goodies and to enter contests/challenges.

  • 27
    Mary Ann Thatcher says:

    I want to have my Christmas cards done before I leave on vacation in August.

  • 28

    I want to experiment with new techniques this year.
    I also want to spend more time sitting by my craft table! πŸ™‚

  • 29
    Ashley says:

    I’d like to get back to scrapbooking. Lately I’ve only made cards and I need to catch up on my son’s album.

  • 30
    AngΓ©lique says:

    I don’t really have resolutions, but if this is one, it’s one: Completing ProjectLife 2012. 52 weeks scrapped into one album, so I will have a great album after.

  • 31
    Sheila says:

    My goal this year is to set aside part of a day each week to actually make cards.

  • 32
    Laura Q says:

    My craft resolution this year is to participate in every Make It Monday this year and to premake ALL birthday cards this year so I’m not in a hurry last minute:)

  • 33
    Terri E. says:

    I have a few, but my biggest is to use what I have!

    It’s a good life!

    misse336 says:

    My resolution is to craft more and use more of what I’ve been buying.

  • 35
    Holly saveur says:

    Would like to make all the make-it mondays…from last year and the ones coming.

  • 36
    MicheyMoo says:

    I’m almost 100% completed on my first crafting resolution, which was to make a full inventory of every stamp set, die, ink, tool, etc that is currently in my studio and work out what I will keep and what I will sell or giveaway before making any more purchases. It’s taken me a week of nights to get it done but I’m almost there. Almost ashamed to admit more than 50% of my stamps sets are yet to be inked.
    So resolution No2 is to use more of what I already have instead of buying the next “new” thing that comes along. And to get more crafty/inky this year. xx

  • 37
    samtha johnson says:

    My craft resolution this year was to clean up, clean out and try more challenges. I’ve tackled the clean up part, still working on the out part…. but i have try to do several new challenges.

  • 38
    Jenn M says:

    My crafty “goal” for this year is to use my store of supplies to make cards and gifts for others – to hopefully give them a “lift” by saying “I’m thinking of you”. Life is hard for many, and my goal has always been to share a “smile” – it makes life so much better! Love the new release…Thanks for the chance to win jjm

  • 39
    Carol says:

    My resolution is to make sure I keep cards for myself to send. I sell them all and donate the money to Relay for Life. When I need a card I end up at Hallmark!

  • 40
    Karen M. says:

    My craft resolution is to stamp more. As a new teacher last year, I did not have extra time to do what I really enjoyed doing. This year I am focusing on making cards and donating them to Operation Write Home, as well as some other local places.

  • 41
    Linda says:

    My craft resolution is to use the designer paper I hoard and send out more cards.

  • 42
    Carol says:

    My resolution is to purge some of my craft supplies so I will be organize for my move to my new house and craft room. And also make more cards for challenges!

  • 43
    Jill Kletzing says:

    To do more crafting with my kids.

  • 44
    Meagan says:

    It’s not so much a resolutions as just something I want to continue doing this year after starting it last year: send my Mom a card once a week. We live far away from eachother and it’s just another way for her to know I’m thinking of her.

  • 45
    Durinda Anderson says:

    My resolution is to make my cards and invitations well in advance instead of always rushing to meet a deadline. As a result, I know the end product will be much better and I will have a lot more fun in the process.

  • 46
    Linda Monroe says:

    My resolution is try some new things, instead of gravitating to the same old, same old.

  • 47
    Cindy says:

    My goal is to blog more regularly and stay organized in the craft room!

  • 48
    Kathy W says:

    My craft resolutions are to try more new techniques and use more of what I have. I still plan to place orders, but I’m more selective in my purchases to “fill in the gaps” of what I don’t have, especially stamp images.

  • 49
    Olendia says:

    I have so many craft resolutions this year. I want to be able to surf less and create more. I spend a lot of time looking at other’s people blogs. I want to finish at least one photo album of my daughter and finally create my own crafting blog.

  • 50
    laurazitzer says:

    My resolution is to come up with a card for every stamp set that I own. I make and give away over 250 cards each year so this should challenge me not to make the same old same old.

  • 51
    Deb says:

    I would like to use my old stamps more often. I use them but not nearly enough. There are probably a few more resolutions too, but this one is at the top.

  • 52
    TammyButz says:

    I actually have a few. I want to send b-day and anniversary cards to all my family members (usually start good and then don’t finish). I want to transfer my scrapbook pages into digital pages. And finally, I’m working on a Family History book, that I’d like done by the end of this year.

  • 53
    jane says:

    my resolution is to keep a scrapbook of my new born baby boy born just a month ago, and to use the PTI stamps and dies to make his 1st birthday card and invitations!! xoxo

  • 54
    Karen L. says:

    I will be purging my old craft supplies, over 15 years worth and organizing what I keep. Of course, I am keeping all of my PTI supplies – I am just making room so I can add to my collection!

  • 55
    Linda Richmond says:

    My resolution is to start my Christmas cards NOW. Then do a few each month to ease my holiday stress.

  • 56
    Kimberly O. says:

    I actually have two resolutions. The first is to USE WHAT I HAVE when it comes to the expendable items – paper, ink, ribbon, markers. I’ve already learned to just get white ribbon and color it to match the paper with either ink or alcohol markers. DISCLAIMER: stamps and dies do not fall into this category! The second is to make at least one card a week. That might sound easy to some people, but my mojo has kind of left the building, so right now it seems like a lot of work.

  • 57
    Shelly says:

    …to get rid of stamps & tools that have been unused forever……and organize what I do use…so that I can find what I need for quick projects.

  • 58
    Janet Goshorn says:

    My crafty resolution is to keep my craft table a bit more clean. I seem to spend more time cleaning and organizing my table than actual creating. Little piles of stuff seem to accumulate overnight

  • 59
    Ann Merry says:

    My resolution is to become better organized in an effort to utilize the supplies I already have, and to cut down on the time it takes to find things! Also, I want to try and mass produce some cards, which will make better use of my card crafting time.

  • 60
    Nancy M. says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 was not to buy anything new, to try to create new and beautiful cards and altered items using the stash I have. Sorry to say that your January release will have me blowing that resolution……I want it all!!!

  • 61
    Kristy says:

    My first goal is to get my scrapbook room cleaned and organized! Then on to replenish my supply of cards for the year!

  • 62

    My craft resolution is to keep on going as last year, ’cause that was awesome! πŸ˜€ Continue making cards and having amazing fun with all the sooo talented and sweet crafting ladies! I also want to try new techniques and sort out my craft space to look for stuff I don’t use anymore and make someone else happy with that! This hobby rocks!! Makes me happy!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  • 63
    Monica L says:

    Reading everyone’s resolutions sound so familiar–organize, use stash or donate to others, scrapbook more (or at least some), have cards at the ready, maintain the blog so lovingly started, get published!! I need to do them all but that is a bit ambitious. I hope to focus on just a couple that I have a chance of sticking with–a better organized and more functional craft area; use more of what I have, give away what I’m not using and buy new purposefully; and create more to share more. Wish me luck!!

  • 64
    Jayne says:

    To keep actually using what I have! Going well so far…

  • 65
    Susie N. says:

    This year, I’d like to have basic stamping essentials like precut cardstock, patterned paper, adhesives and inks in a box kit so that crafting when I have an hour is more crafting and not hunting down basics, or getting bogged down deciding what I want to use!!! Lol

  • 66
    Ericka S. says:

    I have plans for a “birthday scrapbook” for my son. One page for each birthday. He turns 4 this year and I haven’t started…..My goal is to complete this project and be ready before his 5th birthday next year!

  • 67
    Annette Snyder says:

    I have a few craft projects started that I would like to finish and I would like to focus more on scrapbooking!

  • 68
    bunni says:

    My resolution is to use the stamp sets that I haven’t used yet or don’t go to as often. To make more cards to give as gifts, to make others happy.

  • 69
    Lisa L. says:

    My craft resolution is to get more scrapbooking LO’s done, and to try to incorporate more of the challenges I want to take part in into my LO’s so I don’t get so far behind. I also want to learn more stamping techniques and become more consistent with it. Thank you so very much!
    Lisa

  • 70
    Luv2scr@p says:

    My resolution this year is to learn more techniques. So far I have been “winging” it, but get very frustrated. So I’m taking classes and buying better tools!

  • 71
    Kelly says:

    I have 3 goals to work towards – to purge and give away, to use what I have and like (PTI of course), and to experiment and try new things.

  • 72
    Sue Ann says:

    My craft goal is to be more organized, stop cutting into paper when I have a scrap piece …… now that I have organized all my paper on Jan 1 ……… and to be oaky with giving myself time to be in my craft space and not feel like I have to be doing something else for the family.

  • 73
    Emily says:

    Love the new release … making my shopping list πŸ™‚ My craft resolution is to do more crafts! I’d like to work on my classes and perhaps start my funshops again.

  • 74
    Kathie Duffy says:

    I did a daring thing and took the plunge late last year and converted from using another company’s product to PTI. I sold off everything and started over. I make cards and invitations as a side business which meant having to revamp my website as well. My crafty resolution for the new year is this: To create at least 5 sample cards for each category I have listed on my website over the next two months and to have my shelves stocked with cards ready to go. Another of my resolutions is to expand my ribbon, button and die tools, and focus on purchasing Tag and Background sets. But the biggest resolution of all – TO STAY ORGANIZED THROUGHOUT ACCUMULATION! πŸ™‚

  • 75
    S.Bands says:

    My craft resolution is to scrapbook more! Since there are two movings in two years (one is international), my craft room is not organized as i want, which is my excuse not to do much scrapbooking. Finally, we will be moving into the house where we intend to stay for many years to come, i definitely want to organize my space and to start scrapbooking more!

  • 76
    Linda in aus says:

    That’s easy, I have to use my stamps more.

  • 77
    Polly says:

    I need to stamp more just for the love of it..not get so caught up in projects and deadlines. I really enjoy stamping with no specific goal or card in mind…that’s when I get carried away and create something really special.

  • 78
    richard says:

    Hey Dee- Richard in Boston. Just read your post and wondered if maybe we could do a swap of some of our surplus?

  • 79

    To play every day, enter all the challenges that time and interest permit and to post at least 4 days each week!

  • 80
    Samantha VanArnhem says:

    Not so much a resolution but I have started a Project Life album this year and hope to be able to keep up with that for the entire year.

  • 81
    Dotty says:

    My resolution is to organize my craftroon and get rid of things I haven’t used in years. Also to catch up on my scrapbooks.

  • 82
    debra says:

    I want to use my cardmaking to bless others. To send out more cards in the mail. To give others packages of my handcrafted cards as gifts.

  • 83
    June C says:

    My resolution is to use all the awesome tools and stamps that I haven’t gotten around to yet. I also want to take pictures of my favorite “creations” so I don’t have to think so much about a design next time I need to make a card in a hurry.

  • 84
    Lauri Gulotta says:

    I have resolved to SIMPLIFY. First by purging my stash of unused items, no matter how much the little voice tells me that I “might use them some day”, and secondly by getting my most used sets and items together in portable totes so when the muse hits I can be ready to go with very little hunting and gathering time. I’ve already made progress on the second part of my resolution, and that feels good!

  • 85

    I resolve to use my tools more fully. I have been organizing for two weeks now, and just added my printer to my wireless network to reduce one more cord from the office & crafty space.

  • 86
    richard says:

    My resolution is to catalog all my stamps into a notebook, by set and theme, both images and sentiments. I hope it will make finding exactly what I want to use that much easier!

  • 87
    Janet L. says:

    I resolve to use more of my stamps. Some of them have never even seen a drop of ink! That doesn’t mean I won’t buy more, but I’m going to try to be more selective in my purchases!! I also want to increase my stack of “ready to send” cards. I’ve been caught frantically trying to get a card ready too many times, so I need to get ahead of the game. Thanks for the chance to win great prizes!

  • 88
    Lucy B says:

    My I have a few Craft resolutions for this year, one is to use up some of my stash, another is to find new ways of using the left overs so I don’t waste as much and the last is to become more confident about my work πŸ™‚
    A late happy new year to you all and thanks for this wonderful release!
    Lucy

  • 89

    My resolution is to reorganize my supplies, making sure to plan for future storage as my stash of PTI goodies grows. So far so good, I’m on track with my plans…

  • 90
    Pam H says:

    My goal was to clean up and organize my craft room…which I have done already. Great feeling of accomplishment.
    Beyond that by goal is to purge and try to sell some supplies to make room for the NEW (especially Papertrey products)

  • 91

    I’d like to spend less time on the computer and more time actually crafting.

  • 92
    Deana Straub says:

    My crafty resolution is to get my craft room completed in the basement. We are working on finishing the basement and a craft room is #1 on the list!

  • 93
    Cheryl B. says:

    My resolution is to have a card stash that uses items I already have( especially paper)ready to go for an upcoming occasion. I would like to make a card every week,( so far so good!). And I definitely want to start my Christmas cards in October and have them finished,signed and addressed by Dec.1 2012.

  • 94
    Jean says:

    I have a few ~ one would be to start a blog (already in the works), two ~ sell and/or give away things I am no longer using, third ~ get organized (this will be the toughest), and last make a scrapbook for my parents of my son.

  • 95
    Jamie Schragel says:

    I have quite a few, but I’ll only share two right now. The first one is to organize and finish setting up my craft room. The second one is to complete some of the projects I started and didn’t have time to finish!

  • 96
    rae barthel says:

    I would really like to get better at stamping. I am primarily a sentiment stamper as I have been too chicken to venture out into the world of stamped images and coloring. πŸ˜‰

  • 97
    Isabel Z says:

    My resolution is to organize all of my crafting supplies and to donate those that I never use.

  • 98
    Arlyn Mason says:

    To keep my craft room tidy!!!

  • 99
    Tracy K says:

    My resolution is to Do more and Look less. I love looking at the projects everyone creates; I need to put that inspiration into action!

  • 100
    Deb Else says:

    I actually have 2: to become better organized so I can better utilize what I have and to send more random cards to brighten the days of the people in my life.

  • 101
    Rhiannon S says:

    Organize, organize, organize! That’s my biggest NY Resolution. I’m a relatively new stamper and need to come up with better storage solutions for all the stuff I’ve acquired in the past year.

  • 102
    Amelia says:

    My resolution is to go through all my crafting items and purge and get rid of what I don’t use anymore and I am sure I will find some old stamp sets that I want to start using again!

  • 103
    Miriam Prantner says:

    My resolution is to try new things: not be afraid to mix patterns, use my sewing machine more, try copics, etc.

  • 104
    Susi K says:

    Another fabulous release – can’t wait to order some of my new faves πŸ™‚
    My craft resolution this year is to overcome my hesitancy in creating and posting to my new blog. It’s like the first step seems to be the hardest, I can’t seem to get over the feeling that I don’t know what I’m doing, even though I’m very proficient on a computer. So … to get my blog finally up & running so I can share my love of stamping with the blog world.

  • 105
    Stephanie C says:

    My craft resolution is to clean out some of my old craft supplies because I just have too much stuff! I also want to make sure I find the time to create more cards this year. I moved a few months ago and haven’t had alot of time for cards. Then some how some way I’d love to start scrapbooking too! Maybe that’s a little too much, but I can try!

  • 106
    Anna says:

    My resolution for 2012 is to take one of my spare bedrooms (which right now is like a storage room), clear it out and make it into MY craft room! Yeah!

  • 107
    Pamm says:

    I am going through all of my seldom used supplies and donating them to local nursing homes. My other resolution is to get (and STAY!!!) more organized this year!

  • 108
    Maureen L says:

    I haven’t made a formal crafting resolution, but every year I try to be just a little more organized. I also want to “mentor” a few friends who I introduced to card making recently, They have a HUGE desire to learn and I want to make time available to teach them basic stuff as they have never done this before. Plus supporting Operation Write Home as much as I can.

  • 109
    Tammy Frayne says:

    My resolution is to submit some of my creations to a Publication call. I also want to be sure to use some of my older stamp sets that have been neglected–combine them with new sets!

  • 110
    Marilyn says:

    I am purging my craft room to make room for the crafty stuff I do use… like PTI stuff!
    After so many years of crafting, there are a ton of things that are obsolete and taking up valuable craft space. The only items I will keep are my PTI goodies!

  • 111
    Jacqueline says:

    My resolution is the same as most, to be organized & not hoard the good stuff. Saving supplies I’ve had since I began papercrafting(3 yrs) is just weird.

  • 112
    Julie E says:

    My crafting resolution for the new year is to use more colored paper. I always reach for white or cream first and I have so much neglected color card stock.

  • 113
    Julie Milnes says:

    My resolution is to keep my space tidy, gather the cards I’ve made into some order and to find room to store the lovely dies and stamps from the new release!!

  • 114
    Andrea Ritter says:

    This year I will update my inventory.
    New sheets with samples of my inks are just finished.
    Next is an inventory of the dies.

  • 115
    donna c says:

    My crafty resolution is to stop hoarding. I must use it or lose it. I have too many pieces of beautiful paper that I am “saving” for the perfect project and too many stamps that I refuse to sell even though they never see ink. I am just going to use those supplies and hope I love the results.

  • 116
    Holly says:

    I need to get better about stamping the INSIDE of my cards. So many of my Christmas and birthday cards were blank inside, so I had a hard time finding a card that I could just grab, sign, address, and mail.

  • 117
    Amanda says:

    My biggest resolution is just to make the time to craft more. I always put craft time off until everything else is “done”. But with two little kids, nothing will ever be done.

  • 118
    Kathleen says:

    This past fall I rearranged my craft space—my goal is to actually use it more—I am scrapbooking my family life and I want to use my stamps and ink in my layouts.

    This year the goal is to blog surf less and create more. I am really behind with scrapbooking and card making and I would like to try being published at least once this year…..

  • 120
    Carla G. says:

    I am using a handmade gratitude journal everyday, along with making cards for everyone this year….no exception!! Trying to get a jump start and stay motivated by sharing in your designer’s ideas. A great place to indulge in!!

  • 121
    Hope Jones says:

    JUST DO IT! 1) Take time and do something crafty….anything crafty. 2)Purge and donate crafty stuff to the school 3)Send out more handmade cards…for any reason….especially to make someone smile.

  • 122
    Lori Travis says:

    My resolution is to keep ahead of the holidays. I plan to get a stash of cards done before I need them.

  • 123
    Sheila M Jones says:

    To organise all my craft supplies so that I actually know what I have! I spend too much time looking for something when I could be making instead.

  • 124
    Teresa Farmer says:

    I certainly do! Make something every single week and use up all the wonderful supplies I have stockpiled. And try to use a different stamp set every week too! Hopefully will discover some old favorites I’ve forgotten about.

  • 125

    I have a couple of goals for this year…I want to play in more challenges, seems as if at the end of 2011 I was only working on my DT commitments and not playing near enough, hope to change this in 2012 and I would also love to find some time to create some things to submit for publication. Love this months release!!! Just my style of stamps, love the vintage look to so many of these.

  • 126
    Alex says:

    I resolve to make time to create something every day and really PRACTICE my craft!

  • 127

    My answer is has multiple parts!!

    My first craft resolution is to be better about jotting down all of the amazing ideas that come to me in the middle of the night and escape me by daybreak and to try some of them!!

    My second craft resolution is to push myself to think more out of the box and try new techniques. I have thousands of stamps and most have not seen the light of day in years! I am a very seasoned scrapper and stamper, but there are so many new techniques I have not tried!

    My third resolution is to re-organize my craft room so that it is more functional for my business! I have so many crafts going on in here and some stuff just needs to go after all of these years! I resolve to clean up my craft space more often and run my Etsy business in a more organized fashion!

    Thanks for reading my list of resolutions! πŸ™‚

    Laura :) says:

    My resolution is to make more layouts, and not just cards. (and I see I am not the only one lol). I want to use my stamps on my layouts more too.

  • 129
    Peggy Sue says:

    My resolution should include -stop hoarding all my pretty paper and also use some of the stamp sets that have never seen a spot of ink.

  • 130
    Karen B. says:

    Beautiful projects! My crafty resolution is to try to keep my craft space organized and tidy, currently, I can’t even see the floor! I better get on this resolution.

  • 131

    I really want to get published for the first time (and maybe second πŸ˜‰

  • 132
    Cassi says:

    my “craft-olution” is to start a blog this month and post actively. i look forward to participating in PTI blog hops, more challenges, and giveawys of my stash.

  • 133
    Mary Ann T says:

    My crafting resolution is to try to enjoy what I do more. I often get so caught up in trying to get card done and out on time that I don’t enjoy the process. So my crafting key word for 2012 is savor.

  • 134
    Iris says:

    My craft resolution for this year will be to reorganize my craft space. I have many ideas and a new room where I can hopefully realize them.

  • 135
    Mary Duffek says:

    My resolution/goal for my art is to make sure that whatever I create I share. There are so many times that I don’t take the opportunity to share. I’m not sure why I do that….but will stop this year. =)

  • 136
    Amy E. says:

    My craft resolution for the year is to buy less, use more. Oh, and actually send the cards I make. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 137
    Lori V. says:

    My resolution is to not wait until the last minute to make cards for special occasions. I send cards for the same birthdays, anniversaries, etc. each year, but I always wait until the last minute to create these special cards. This year I am planning ahead.

  • 138
    Mary Ellen says:

    I have a couple of resolutions that I am working on so far. First, I FINALLY organized my ribbon into color groups, no more tangled mess! Second, I am selling or donating stamps that need a new home and third, I am resolving to make Christmas cards every month instead of panicking in December!

  • 139

    This year I resolve to do more types of crafting. I want to do more home decor projects, from holiday banners to refinishing furniture. I have lots of “to do” projects in mind!

  • 140
    Allyson Blanchette says:

    My craft resolution for the new year is to clean out my craft room, sell all of the stuff I have cleaned out and don’t want, keep it clean all the time, and most importantly make sure to use all of the stamps and other supplies that I currently have in my craft room.

  • 141
    Barbara says:

    My goal for this year is to submit some cards to magazines and try to be published.

  • 142

    My crafting resolution was to post more on my blog and to buy only the things that I will certainly use. I’d also like to send more cards to family and friends.

  • 143
    Nicole says:

    My craft resolution is make more time to use all of the wonderful supplies that I have!

  • 144
    Lara says:

    To finish my half done projects.

  • 145
    Anita R says:

    I haven’t made New Year’s resolutions for years but I would like to participate in more challenges, stretching my use of color in particular.

  • 146
    Titta says:

    My resolution for 2012 is to try and be better prepared ahead of time for things like birthdays and Christmas. I want to make cards in advance and avoid the last minute stress as much as possible.

  • 147
    Melissa H says:

    I’m resolving to build my card stash so I am not frantically making cards at the last minute all the time. I hope that working in a more relaxed environment will boost my creativity to the next level!

  • 148
    Diane Anthony says:

    My craft resolution this year is to complete my Master’s Capstone so that I actually have time to craft guilt-free! This should really help my mojo! Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize!

  • 149
    Joyce Larkins says:

    My resolution is to scrap my son’s wedding – he’s been married almost 2 years — time to get it done !!!

  • 150
    LisaE says:

    I want to make more scrapbook pages this year. I did over 80 last year + mini’s and I’d like to do 100 12×12’s this year. Beautiful cards!

  • 151
    Roni says:

    I want to keep my craft area clean and organized as I do a project and not wait until I am done with it to clean up! Having a card published would be awesome too!

  • 152
    Mindy says:

    My resolution is to learn something new…So I’ve been learning how to knit πŸ™‚

  • 153
    kara says:

    Yes! During the week, when I come home from work, I have resolved to exercise BEFORE any craft related activities. This includes blogging, surfing the net for inspiration, and sitting down to create! So far, so good! It is important to me to live a healthy life style so that I may enjoy this passion and others for many, many years to come!!

  • 154
    Barbara H says:

    My craft resolution is to get organized and use what I have. I love all of the new products but it seems that I just buy things and then I don’t use them. I would like to donate the crafting items that I haven’t used in years and organize the stuff that I have!

  • 155

    My New Year’s craft resolution is to be published!

  • 156
    Dru says:

    I have a few resolutions, but I think the at the top of my list is to make a scrapbook of and for my daughter – all about her and as a tribute to her. It’s long past due! This is a beautiful release and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!

  • 157
    donna says:

    Can’t wait for this release. Looks like some really good stuff. Have really enjoyed the cards and all the inspiration. Thanks!!!

  • 158
    Elle says:

    Organize Organize & Organize some more! And to add one more it would be to use more of what I actually buy. Sounds easy enough, right?

  • 159
    Kim Z says:

    use more of what I have, be better at tracking birthdays, Angel-versaries,Comfort cards, etc. Be more aware of products I’ll use vs stuff I “want”. Try more “out of the box” techniques yet stay in my comfort zone….whatever that means!!! πŸ˜‰

  • 160
    Jeaneen says:

    We have recently moved. So my resolution is to get my stamp space set up and organized then to identify and donate all things I can’t/won’t use to charity.

  • 161
    Catherine Goniotakis says:

    My resolution is to clean up my craft space and organize it better which would allow me easy access to all my collected “stuff” over the years. Also, to think outside of the box creatively.

  • 162
    Jessica R. says:

    My resolution is to USE my supplies. Really USE them. Take classes and watch videos and get really crafty and creative. Can’t wait!!

  • 163

    My resolution is to use the paper and embellishments I have collected over the past ten years of crafting, reduce the size of my stash.

  • 164
    Ohhh Snap says:

    I don’t really do resolutions, but I do make goals or guidelines (to me they are softer, friendlier resolutions lol). First is to finish and post my ginormous light box made of foam core. Next is to make my crafting space more conducive to crafting. It’s a whopper of an omelet, but I think it’ll be worth it. Last year I started a project log (for projects and ideas and what they were for), so I’ll keep on with that.

  • 165
    Penny says:

    My resolution…spend more time creating and less time looking at what others create. I love looking at other people’s creativity but I spend so much time doing that, it leaves little time for me to create on my own!

  • 166
    Sheryl B. says:

    My craft resolution is to get caught up on my kids’ scrapbooks and to have more cards in my stash so I’m not scrambling to make on at the last minute!

  • 167
    Stampnurse says:

    My resolution for crafting is always the same. Purge the unloved stuff over to some other deserving home. I need space to see and focus. I have too much jammed in a small space. And thanks to Pinterest I now have a wall mounted punch rack ~ it is awesome but even more messy now. Gotta love a good challenge!

  • 168
    maryrose says:

    I have a few crafty resolutions. Mail out more cards. Send a card of encouragement to someone “just because”. Expand creatively. Find more ways to combine my love of needle art with my love of paper crafting. Go totally unmounted. Do more with less. Keep it simple and keep it fun!

  • 169
    Jill says:

    My craft resolution is to finally finish moving and organizing all my craft supplies into my new crafting space in our basement.

  • 170
    SueB says:

    Make my Christmas cards early. I also want to have a “tea” at my home with friends which will include a stamping time.

  • 171
    Laura says:

    I hope to sale some cards and to participate to some challenges.

  • 172

    My craft resolution is to use my supplies and buy less. I dont want to turn into a craft hoarder!

  • 173

    My craft resolution is to use every image stamp I own. I made this resolution in 2009, and it took two-and-a-half years to make it through, but I feel the need to do it again. It’s helpful for deciding what stamps to get rid of (hard to work with, not suited to my CAS style, etc.) and where I need to expand my collection!

  • 174
    Pam G says:

    I have four craft resolutions for 2012. Focus on using up my stash of supplies, concentrate on scrapbooking, make cards at least one month in advance of when they are needed and work in my studio everyday even if it’s only for an hour. So far so good!

  • 175
    Sherry says:

    Mine is to do more scrapbook pages this year and to actually mail more cards. I tend to make cards as I need them but would love to build up my stash enough that I can mail some out “just because”.

  • 176
    lainey says:

    Well, not really a resolution, but more of a challenge. “BUM” = Buy less, Use what I have, Make more. I was doing really well until I saw your release this month…. lol

  • 177
    Sue Lelli says:

    My craft resolution is to send more cards in for possible publication! My first ever publication just happened this January in CARDS Magazine and I am having two more published in the June issue! Thanks to PTI, whose products never go out of style, I am having the time of my life! This has been a GREAT New Year’s resolution!

  • 178
    Marilisa Voth says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to go through the huge amount of family pictures that was passed down when my Grandmother died. My goal is to sort them, date them, find out who all the people are in the pics and put together a historical album that I can share with my Aunts, Uncles, cousins and siblings.

  • 179
    Donna says:

    I have to make 2 cards with each stamp set I have and do a scrapbook page each week.

  • 180
    Karen Knegten says:

    My resolution is to weed out the supplies I know I will never use and donate them. My studio is getting out of control! Love your products!

  • 181
    Theresia says:

    My 2012 resolution is to craft at least 1 hour a day, stamp more not just on cards but also in my scrapbooks. Try to use papers which is in pockets for a long time. Enjoy crafting every day a little more.

  • 182
    kprakken says:

    My resolution this year is to make 8 different Christmas cards a month so they will all be done and ready to mail in December. Christmas stamps are my weakness and I have so many that have never seen ink.

  • 183
    Linda M. says:

    My resolution is to use all of the unused stamps that I have and give any I don’t like away to a new home. Wish me luck!

  • 184
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    My craft resolution is to try and think outside the box when I am working on projects, to try new and different techniques that force me out of my comfort zone. At least that’s what I hope to do!

  • 185
    Becky Rusher says:

    I’d like to submit a few things for publication and step out of the box a little more often and try some new things.

  • 186
    JoAnn H says:

    Organize and purge my supplies and use more stamps and dies on my layouts πŸ™‚

  • 187
    Pam W. says:

    Needless to say, I won’t stop adding to my crafting collection, especially when PTI keeps adding such awesome products to their line up. With that being said, I do hope to give “more love” to the items that are already in my craft room and I have already started doing that. Hopefully I will continue through the year.

  • 188
    Vickie Lee says:

    My craft resolution is to continue to enjoy this amazing hobby! It is medicine for my soul.

  • 189
    Lemur says:

    Having a beautiful toddler is the best thing in the world! I’m so blessed! However, he makes it quite difficult to do anything crafty. My resolution is to accept the help my loving husband so often offers and let him take care of our sweet son while I stamp. It’s a really good outlet for me!

  • 190
    Michelle L says:

    I want to be better about giving my immediate family (husband and children)handcrafted goodness. Most of the time they are the ones that get left out because of my procrastination. Actually that is a good resolution too…don’t procrastinate on papercrafted projects!

  • 191
    Pam Young says:

    I want to make more cards and collect less products!! I get caught up in purchasing products and then they sit in my room and never get used.

  • 192
    Erica M. says:

    My resolution would be to craft more. It seems I spend alot of time in my craft room without actually accomplishing anything. I am also doing a month by month scrapbook, so I definitely want to stay on top of that!

  • 193
    Stephanie says:

    Mine is to keep my blog (which is mainly craft stuff) updated regularly.
    Thanks for the chance to win!! πŸ™‚

  • 194
    Lee Anne says:

    I do have crafting resolutions! I want to use my stamps on more layouts, finish my son’s scrapbook from pre-K and hopefully get published again! I’d also like to use more patterned paper in all of my projects – and that starts by getting and using Simply Jane paper!
    Thanks for a wonderful, wonderful week full of inspiration. You and the DT really were amazing!

  • 195
    June says:

    My resolution is to get more organized so that I have more time to craft rather that spending my time hunting what I want.

  • 196
    Ann says:

    My resolution is to do something crafty everyday…even if it’s just for a few minutes. I’m so far behind on my scrapbooking! I’d also like to get ahead on my card making so I’ll have cards to send when they are needed. There’s just something about being crafty…it does the soul good!

  • 197
    Sheryl Mosko says:

    My craft resolution this year is to have more cards for guys on hand before I actually need them. I always need some & have to scramble to make them.

  • 198
    Ali B. says:

    My craft resolution is to craft more. I need to find time for myself and it is such a great stress reliever.

  • 199

    yes I have. I want to make more layouts than cards this year. I also want to make a project Life album where I can use all of my beautiful papertrey Ink stamps ;O)

  • 200
    Rene Hobbie says:

    My resolution is to use up what I have and get my scrapbooks current.

  • 201
    Heather Vogan says:

    My resolution is to make more crafty things: cards, sewing projects, etc! Beautiful release!

  • 202
    Sunny Penn says:

    My resolution is to send out more cards to the people I love…

  • 203
    wendy says:

    My craft resolution is to make more masculine cards….they intimidate me so…and to use my “special pretty paper” more

  • 204
    Holly F says:

    My craft resolution is to keep my craft area organized and clean up after every project. Plus I challenge myself use at least every stamp set I own at least once this year (I only have 50 so maybe a card a week using each set).

  • 205
    chris says:

    My resolution is to quit hoarding paper. I don’t need to save every little piece, “just in case”. In the past few days, if i cut a die cut out of a sheet of card stock, I have been USING up the rest. Even if it is just to cut some mat stacks or shapes and add the to my little drawer.

    It is forcing me to USE, and to be more creative, as usually those extra pieces and shapes inspire the next project!

  • 206
    June K. says:

    One of my resolutions is to make holiday cards year round. This will allow me to enjoy all of my holiday stamp sets and dies not just during the couple months before the holidays.

  • 207

    Crafting without deadlines! Craft what I want when I feel like it with no pressure to do anything but enjoy it. I also want to make more personalized items and party decorations/treats.

  • 208
    Marcia Truslow says:

    I need to purge, big-time, and keep only my PTI sets and supplies. Then I can get my house and craft supplies in order and not waste time looking for something I can never find (“oh – but I just know it’s here – somewhere!”). My crafting time has dropped off dramatically simply because of the feeling of being overwhelmed. I adore PTI style so the rest needs to GO!

  • 209
    Anika says:

    My craft resolution is to find time to craft again! I’ve barely been able to touch my stamps and ink since last April when my boys were born. So I’m hoping to be able to find time to create at least once a month.

  • 210
    Karla J says:

    I have two. One is to use some of the paper I already have instead of buying more. The second is to spend only a certain amount of money each month on craft supplies…that’s not going so well

  • 211
    Jennifer Sootkoos says:

    My craft resolution for the year is to get back into blogging more. I went on a little unexpected break at the end of the year so I would like to become more regular in my posts so that means trying to create more projects.

  • 212
    Gina Kozuch says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to start using all the products I buy and stop hoarding them

  • 213
    Margaret Peltier says:

    My crafting resolution is to get everything reorganized (a never ending task) so that I can get more scrapbooking done (way behind on all the albums, and organize my card/projects to do list – I also have 2 weddings to get invitations designed and made for 2013!!!
    Just love the Simply Jane set – thinking that may be incorporated into an invitation idea for my neice!!

  • 214
    Jen Rzasa says:

    I do have a crafty resolution: to get my design team assignments done ahead of time, instead of saving them to the last minute like I usually do!

  • 215
    Carolynn Wilson says:

    I resolve to keep learning, attempting challenges, making submissions, and nudging myself into new design/ color/ technique territory.

  • 216
    Sarah M. says:

    I am trying to enter more challenges and publication calls. Who knows what may come of it?

  • 217
    Christy A. says:

    I plan to get all of my stamping stuff better organized so that I can know all that I have and use it in 2012!

  • 218
    Renee V. (happystamper05) says:

    My resolution is to find more time to stamp! Just squeeze it somehow! I think it would be okay if the laundry went undone for one day. I just need to convince myself of that, right?
    Great release! It’s been a fun week leading up to release day!

  • 219
    Jeanie L says:

    I would love to get organized and use more of my stash. I want to get back into scrapbooking and get my favorite memories with my family down on paper! Also would love to send out more cards! Ok, well I guess I have a few resolutions, LOL!! Love your products and the new releases! Just ordered for the first time this month and I’m in big trouble I feel with adding more to my stash!!

    Thanks so much for the chance at an awesome giveaway!!

  • 220
    Lori Weinberg says:

    Make and use more lunchbox notes for my kids.

  • 221
    Paula Laird says:

    My craft goals and resolutions are: To downsize my craft room enough through decluttering and using my stash that baby girl can have her own room by this summer. To be a little more artsy – all I mean by that is to play with color, composition, different media, and explore more of my own ideas. To learn more embroidery stitches and to learn to knit or crochet. To actually mail the cards I make. To scrapbook and journal. And, last, to only buy things I truly love or need.

  • 222
    Melissa Ladd says:

    I would like to submit for publications this year…something I’ve found very daunting in the past! And to spend more time being creative and enjoying this fun hobby!

  • 223
    Kari D says:

    2012 is off to an AMAZING start! What a wonderful release! My crafting resolution was to stamp and SEND cards every week. Sometimes I get so busy at work that creating is the last thing on the list. THIS YEAR I will get at least one new card in the mail every week. LOTS of friends and family all across the states…email is wonderful, but sometimes you just want to say, “I thought about you and took the time to create something with you in mind.” Gotta love this craft!

  • 224
    Susan B says:

    I resolve to buy the ENTIRE Papertrey line this year! Bwahahahahaha – not because I don’t really want to, it’s just that the funding is not quite there. Seriously, I resolve to craft more. I have really missed it as an outlet. My crafting space is in the process of being reorganized and pared down (thank you broken water inlet pipe) and I’ve started to “do” instead of “wishing I could do” again. Besides getting greeting cards done ahead, I’m working on our Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. Can you say Enchanted Evening, Harvest Gold, and Summer Sunrise?

  • 225
    kathy says:

    My craft resolution is to move outside my box and try new things. I have fallen into a rut and need to get out! This would be a great way to start!

  • 226
    Laura S says:

    Craft more.

  • 227

    My crafty resolution is to share my knowledge and supplies with friends, so they too can have an enjoyable hobby.

  • 228
    Deborah Wilson says:

    I don’t know if I will call this a resolution because I would probably be setting myself up for failure. LOL I would like to be able to keep my scraproom more organized in order to spend more time on projects rather than looking for something. I also want to complete many more cards this year!!

  • 229
    Karen L. says:

    For sure I want to craft more…seems like everyone else’s activities outshadow my “free time”. Crafting for me is very therapeutic, so, like regular exercise, I feel that it is another way for me to stay healthy. I would love to start a blog, but I am not techno-savvy… maybe someday πŸ™‚

  • 230
    Colleen C. says:

    My resolution is to volunteer somewhere and offer card making/crafting classes for kids and adults. This hobby is such a fun and creative outlet for me and I would love to be able to share what I have learned with others.

  • 231
    Shawn Wenrich says:

    I didn’t have one but I’m making one now because It’s a great idea! I resolve to do some type of crafting every day and use more of a variety of all of the great products I have. I’m going to do this by following Mish’s lead of gathering up a group of products to use when creating, I love how she creates her little baskets of fun stuff to incorporate!

  • 232
    Linda Friend says:

    Start making more cards and send them “just because”.

  • 233
    Chris says:

    My biggest resolution–stop buying & start creating. I would like to use each set of stamps I have at least once!

  • 234

    My craft resolution was to never “save” favorite papers and embellishments for a “better” time which I do way too often. Use them and then get something new instead is my new motto.
    Wonderful release!

  • 235
    Mimi H. says:

    I’ve been making cards for the Meals on Wheels program for the past couple years and each year I vow to make more. This year I hope to exceed 100.

  • 237
    Sue D says:

    I definitely have a craft resolution–I need to use up old supplies, use stamps that have never touched ink and in the process make more cards for our church card ministry.

  • 238
    Theresa says:

    I would like to get more organized. I would like to make a little time every day to work on some craft project.

  • 239
    Crisanne D. says:

    My resolution for this year is to get back to work on creating. I have taken quite a break in any actual work. Of course I have never missed a PTI post, and have lots of inspiration at my fingertips! I need to get back into the Make it Monday challenges, and I need to work on my boys scrapbooks!

  • 240
    Margaret C says:

    I have several !

    I NEED to finish the quilts I started before the last bout of ME kicked in – yup, that includes the wedding quilt for my friends who are 2 children and 7 years in !!

    I also want to Project Life – late, I know…

    I am also going to send more cards, for any reason. I need to use more of my craft stuff and buy less this year – although I expect some PTI goodies might slip that net !!

    Great release – thanks for the opportunity !

    Debbie R. says:

    I have a couple of craft resolutions. First, I want to make an index of all my sentiment stamps. Second, I want to sort through all my craft/cardmaking supplies and get rid of anything I don’t need or want anymore. Third, I want to get more organized when I move my cardmaking supplies from the dining room to my new craft table in the basement that my husband is making me!

    Pamela says:

    I made several “promises” – first to try a new craft, want to learn how to solder jewelry (of course, I have all the supplies) and try to buy less, use what I have and to use things that I “had to have” and have yet to use.

    jan m says:

    Too many wishes and too many responsibilities to make a resolution. Dreams of publishing, having my own blog, selling cards, having cards ready for friends and family at a moments notice, being able to walk in my craft room…….. Ha Ha! :)))

    Teri says:

    My resolution is to craft more & surf less. I tend to look for ideas & not craft enough. I would also like to craft a little most days rather than feeling like I have to have enough time in a sitting to complete a project. Thank you for the wonderful project ideas!!

    Dana W says:

    I do have a craft new years resolution! I have a full drawer of leftover embelishments that (stamped pieces, die cuts, stickers etc.) along with a full filling system of scrap papers. To help me use it more i have started make a card with nothing but the leftover embelishments and scrap papers and posting the card on my blog each Sunday!

    My craft resolution will to be spend less money as we are wanting to buy a new house this year. PTI makes that really hard, though.

    My craft resolution is to make more scrapbook pages. I lost 11 years of pictures last summer when our external hard drive crashed. Now I’m making new memories and want to scrap them. Also make more cards, not for challenges but just for fun! I’m purging my craft room and will start using what I have instead of buying more.

    Rhonda M. says:

    My craft resolution is to use more of what I have and share my cards with others. I want to make more cards throughout the year and give them away as gifts or send them to people! Then I can continue to buy more! My friends and family love to get my cards, so I just need to commit time to create. I love to do it and deserve a few hours of fun each week! Papertrey ink provides such great inspiration, I know I’ll keep my resolution!

    JeanFB says:

    My craft resolution is to purge and organize. I have a lot of “stuff” that has been accumulating over the years. I plan to purge everything that I don’t absolutely love, and organize it to sell at a local crafting yardsale that is run by our LSS. Life’s too short to spend all of your time looking for stuff, LOL!

    I am (in dog years) old enough not to do resolutions, but I want to use my blog more, do lots of mini-books and try more “new things” (that is a joke) I love trying everything that comes down the road!!!! Thanks for enabling and I can’t wait to get my hands on that flourish die……..and…..you have outdone it with all your previews this am….bravo to the designers!!!!

  • 258
    Gigi says:

    Sift through supplies and sort out those that haven’t been used in over two years. What’s one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so I’ll give to a charity or to a school.

  • 259
    Paula I says:

    My resolution is to get my craft area/room set up and get crafting! I tried setting up an area in our basement, that didn’t work out for several reasons…I’ll spare you the details! So I usually end up in the Kitchen or DR, neither one of those rooms are large enough to set up a permanent area. So I usually keep everything in marked boxes and then have to pull out my supplies when I need them. I’m starting to feel more like a collector instead of a crafter and it’s really bumming me out. I resolve to put an end to this one way or another. Maybe I’ll take over Hubby’s garage, don’t tell him, I think a surprise attache would work best.

  • 260
    Melissa says:

    First craft resolution is to get my space more organized… cuz then I’ll be more inspired to craft. Second, to paricipate in more “challenges”. And lastly, to keep up with blogging my craft journey with more posts.

  • 261
    Beth says:

    To stop buying so much new stuff, and use what I already have (much of which hasn’t ever seen ink). I was doing OK with this month’s release until I saw all the Jane Austen stuff yesterday. Now – as usual – I am in big trouble!

  • 262
    Elizabeth S. says:

    I have several craft related resolutions. First I would like to get my stamp stash organized and inventoried. Second, I would like to actually spend time creating things. When I actually do make things, my third resolution is to post on my blog more often.

  • 263
    Lea Ann says:

    I’ve already accomplished crafty goal 1 for the year . . . that was to clean and organize my craft room/office space. This will support goal 2, which is to craft more and hoard less πŸ™‚ Another good start there, as I’ve spent much of this weekend creating. Yeah!!

  • 264
    Judy F. says:

    Stop dreaming and just do it! I’d like to have cards made on hand before an event or celebration arrives. Too many times I’m putting the last bit of embellishment on a card before I go out the door!

  • 265

    Beth Kimbler says:

    I want to really use my supplies, not just collect them. I am trying to make at least one card a week. Of course getting organized would make both easier!

  • 271
    Lisa F says:

    My resolution is to finally give away all the supplies I have been hoarding for so long! If I am not using it, I resolve to share it with others who can! I have often donated extra supplies to my daughters girl scout troop, and to both our children’s schools although there is always more to donate. I have packed several boxes of paper and ribbons this past week and plan to deliver them to a local community center soon. Crafting is a gift to share and I hope to share this gift with others throughout the year!

  • 272
    Alexandra says:

    My resolution is to craft more and ponder less *lol* I have so many ideas that never make it into a project because I didn’t start. I also want to be more tidy in my craft room so I have the space to craft properly. Loving all the new release goodies and can’t wait to get my hands on them!!!

  • 273
    Lisa Marie says:

    I’m making a year long commitment to creating 12 DIY art projects – one for each month of 2012. I thought it would be a neat way to use my stamp collection, all the while creating some unique β€œseasonal” art.

    Ive also decided to create an Annual Card Set to donate at auction to our company’s annual United Way campaign. I want to design something very nice to help raise a lot of money, and by planning early, I am better able to take a little time every month to dedicate to my goal. ~Lisa Marie MacDonald

    I want to send a handmade card for every birthday in my family this year…sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews, etc… (Sending them on time would be nice!) And, I want to buy and try a few Copics to see if it’s something I want to get into.

  • 277
    Maria G. says:

    My craft resolution is to use all my materials collected over the years and make more greeting cards.

  • 278
    Kathy Jackson says:

    I need to start using more of what I already have! It’s hard every time a new release comes out – I want it all!! I have ended up being a stamp “collector” this past year!! Not sure I can resist the new stamps – I love what I saw on the sneak peeks!!

  • 279
    Lauren M. says:

    I have 2 resolutions: Buy less, use more. (Yes, I see the hypocrisy of this as I prepare for a PTI new release tonight, but PTI doesn’t count, right? :)) My other resolution is to devote more time to scrapbooking. So many neglected photos!!

  • 280
    Lauren Brekelmans says:

    Right at the top of my list is to do more creating. I spend more time collecting, organizing and reorganizing, now it’s time for me to put all these wonderful products I have to work. Don’t get me wrong, I will continue to collect and organize but now it’s time for me to put everything to good use.

  • 281
    Connie P. says:

    My craft resolutions are to;

    Trell says:

    I’m still fairly new the world that is papercrafting. I’ve learned a lot in the past year, and I’m hoping to learn more in the coming year. My main craft goal for the new year is to expand my horizons and try new things. I also really want to get my space more organized.

  • 284
    Julie B. says:

    I don’t really consider this a resolution, rather a “need”… to finally finish organizing my craft attic space, to either purge some items or put them to use, and make more cards in time to send. If I get even one of those completed, I’ll be a happy girl.

  • 285
    Yen P says:

    I would want to make at least 2 different cards per week and a scrapbook layout per week so I can use all my stuff but I know there will be more dies coming monthly from PTI so I will plan on making more spaces to store them that way they are organized with the old ones I already have!

  • 286

    I always go through my crafting supplies one time in the spring to get rid of stuff that I am not using anymore. I put a big “free” sign on it when I go to a yearly stamping event in Buffalo. It’s fun to know that other people will breathe new life into my forgotten treasures. Now, if only I could take “THREE bags full”, instead of the usual one that I bring!!

  • 287
    see mary stamp says:

    Not so much a resolution for this year, as continuing something I started last year. Once a month – I meet with friends for a PTI party. We each design a card or project that uses some PTI stamp or die. We each bring the supplies for the others to make 2 of our card and end the evening with 8 or so cards (to take home.) It’s great fun to see what everyone comes up with and it typically inspires us to add other PTI sets to our wish list.

    Holly F says:

    I have resolved to budget my craft spending this year. Gasp, I know. Seriously, though, I have decided to purchase based on my projects needs versus buying things I think I must have. Wish me luck.

    I’ll keep it simple this year – try to mail cards I make on time for the event. I seem to always have to send “belated” birthday cards!

  • 292
    Nancy says:

    My resolution is the same every year – not to buy anything until I start using what I have! Hopefully, I can achieve at least 1/4 of that resolution in 2012!

  • 293
    Jennifer T says:

    I would like to build up a stash of cards.
    I’m always making them at the last minute or
    Not at all (Christmas cards).

  • 294
    Donna Garvin says:

    My craft resolution is to take the time to create. With working full time and spending what little time off I have with my husband,children and grandchildren, I leave very little time to spend crafting. So this year I resolve to spend at least one day a week to making cards. Last year due to financial issues I vowed to slow down on my crafting purchases. Let me tell you PTI made it a very challanging year because I wanted it ALL!!! I am sure it will be the same this year!

  • 295
    Amrita says:

    My craft resolution is to organize and craft more. I spend more time buying and browsing and less time crafting. Maybe typing it here will encourage me to stick to my resolution. πŸ™‚

  • 296
    Allene Frederick says:

    Yes, I do have a craft resolution…actually two:
    1) In my children’s scrapbooks I am 5 years behind, so I would like to catch up at least two years in 2012.

    2) I would like to get ahead on making cards for birthdays, thank yous, and such. I find that at the last minute I need a card and don’t have any made. I would like to work ahead so I have a stash to grab from. I do like making cards for specific people when I know their likes and style, so I want to look ahead to my birthday calendar and have those cards ready one month ahead.

    Thank you!

    Gabby says:

    First off, congrats for starting off the New Year with a Big Bang of a Release! Amazing sets, dies, innovative products … we are lovin it! I have a few crafty goals/resolutions for this new year. I would say my top priority is to USE ALL of my stamps and supplies. I tend to get “hooked” on a select few and/or the new ones and not utilize those I had preciously. I need to USE them all, singly or in combination. πŸ™‚ And what a better place to be inspired to do that, than here at PTI!

  • 302

    This year I plan to create more cards and spend less time looking. I also want to spend at least 30 minutes at my craft table everyday. Finally,I need to be more timely; get cards out on time! By the way,I am using the Chinese New Year (Jan 23)as my start date!

    Mary H. says:

    I have several craft resolutions for the new year. Most of all – STAMP MORE! Using the patterned paper I have is another. Going through my craft room and purging some of the things I don’t use anymore (old die cut machines, etc.) to make space for fun, new stuff.

  • 308
    Mary Anne V. says:

    Priya Venkat says:

    Since you asked………..here they are:
    1. Organise my craft supplies and my room.
    2. Use up all my stamps in every one of my stamp sets at least once this year.
    3. Resolve to not buy colored cardstock this year (I have a huge stash that I need to use up first)
    4. Update my blog regularly.
    5. Try my hand at other paper crafts (other than cards and scrapbooks, that is)
    6. Update my childrens scrapbooks.
    7. Remember to keep my craft table clean and neat in between projects.
    8. Complete all unfinished projects.

    Patty J says:

    My resolution is to get all the birthday cards in the mail on time, to have a few sympathy cards on hand and to make and use an abundance of thank you cards. Oh, and to get back to the scrapbooks I started years ago for my kids.

    I am trying to cut back on impulse spending! In 2012, I want to use up more of both my fabric stash and my papercrafting stash. And to clear out that which I won’t use and donate it… I find I create more with less product choices!

  • 315
    Connie NH says:

    My resolution is get back to scrapping. I have been making cards and mini-books. My sister ( a relative newbie to scrapbooking) has inspired me to get scrapping before the memories are lost.

  • 316

    I most certainly do! Its to be more organised and NOT be up all night before a craft fair, birthday, Christmas Day or other celebration finishing everything off….. some hopes!!

  • 317
    Amy Main says:

    My resolution would be one of old – reorgnaize my wonderful craft room. Donate older items that I will not use and create a “go to space” for all my paper products. I want to be able to create on the fly – that seems to be how I generally roll! Perhaps this shoudl be another resolution for me!

    I dont make New Year’s Resolutions and havent’t since I was a kid. But this January I made a committment to a local nursing home to teach scrapbooking twice a month, providing all supplies and my time for free. I have volunteered at this home for two years and realized that they needed something to keep them busy. And this year, that’s me :}

  • 330
    OnyxStamps says:

  • 331

    My craft resolution is pretty much the same as last year’s resolution. USE MY STUFF! I am satisfied with my progress and I want to keep up the momentum, this time on a more regular basis. I also plan to finish a few projects that have been sitting around too long. My other goal is to actually mail the cards I make to their intended recipients. πŸ˜€

    My resolution is to make at least 2 Christmas cards per month. Last year I dent have as many cards as I would have liked and my craft time is limited. I also want to use all the sets that are collecting dust. πŸ™‚ and have fun in the process.

  • 337

    I guess the first one is to resolve to keep my resolutions…

    But I want to organize my space…that’s tops! πŸ™‚
    Use what I have…donate what I truly won’t use…
    and have a stash of cards ready for whatever occasion may arise when it arises instead trying to make time to make a card for said occasion…
    now do you see why I need the first one? πŸ™‚

  • 341

    I didn’t really make any resolutions, but I would like to use my existing supplies more, and buy less… Of course it’s very hard, especially when I see fabulous images and dies such as this month’s release! I also need to blog surf less, and craft more!

  • 344
    Suzanne mooney says:

    I want to scrapbook more. I think I lost focus on what scrapbooking is all about. It’s not about how good or how arty your page is, but its all about about preserving those family moments. I haven’t scrapbooked in about two years. Over Christmas we found my old albums and we had so much fun going through them. By the last album, we all had tears coming out of eyes from the laughter. Yes, its about those memories.

    My craft resolution is to actually put ink to the stamps I have bought! I have so many sets that have never been kissed with ink.

    My resolution is to work on my Christmas cards ealrier in the year so I’m not rushing at the last minute and to send more “just because” cards! I make so many cards but don’t send out more than half of them. I think a “just because” card can really brighten someone’s day, and I need to do that moe often!

    Anne-Laure says:

    My good resolutions are :

    – reorganizing my craft space and giving away the products that I don’t use or like anymore (none of them are PTI’s !!!)
    -Teaching some techniques to my friends who are expats as me in India ( scrapbooking is almost non existent there)
    – Completing the albums of our 3 years here !

    My resolution is easy…..use more of what I buy! LOL

  • 352
    Beth S says:

    Yes! While I’ve been pretty good about keeping up with stamping and sewing, I have been very negligent with scrapbooking. My son is a junior in high school and I’m determined to put a scrapbook together about his school years. One year a month is my resolution.

    My craft resolution is to get an Etsy store up and running. I’m almost there πŸ™‚

    Susie Johnson says:

    I want to have more cards on hand for occasions instead of having to make one on the day I need it..Also I am going to clean out my craft room and have a rummage sale or donate to someone.

  • 355
    Missy says:

    My resolution is to really think about my purchases and only buy it if I think I will use it. I would also like to make a few cards a week and purge some older stamps in my room.

    I want to get more scrapbooking done this year, and finish up the recipe book I have started.

    My craft resolution is to learn how to take better photographs and actually *do* something with them! I am signed up for a photography course at the end of the month. πŸ™‚

  • 358

    My crafty resolution is probably the same as most others, to get organized. I spend too much time looking for the right paper, tool, ink, etc.

  • 359
    Linda says:

    My craft resolution is to not buy any dsp until my birthday…in September!!!! YIKES!! It’s been tough, but so far so good. I have stacks and stacks of paper pads and really must use them.

  • 360
    KateT says:

    My resolution is to clean out and focus my crafting supplies. I frequently get “crafter’s block” when I have too many choices in my supply stash. I just get overwhelmed! I will most certainly be focusing my collection to mostly PTI items!!!

  • 361
    Tina B. says:

    I am fairly new to card making. I now like the way my cards have evolved. This year I resolve to make my packages looking as good as the cards.

  • 362
    Barbra says:

    I’m sure that a lot of people will have the same craft resolution as me, craft more. I want to get my craft area organized and sit and make more, more, more!!

  • 363

    This is really embarrassing – but I would like to finally learn how to use (and use!) my sewing machine and Cricut… I would also like to ‘buy less, and use more’, from my stash that is. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 364

    I want to scrap more layouts and become better in doing so. And I want to become a member of a great Design Team, so I am working on that one, too. But that’s more a dream, not a resolution…

  • 365
    Allison says:

    My resolution is to organize the paper I have and to make it more “fun” to work in my craft room. To not worry about other things and just “enjoy” the process.

    Cathi Coutu says:

    I need to get my craft space organized and my daughter wants a scrapbook for one of her graduation gifts…hmmm…18 years to get done in 6 mos. Plus I’m a full-time student and single mom…I think I can, I think I can! ;0

    My resolution is to just do more. I always find other things that get in the way of my creative time. I want to get more done this year!!

  • 369
    Cara B says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 is organization! For instance, when I come home from a scrapbook weekend, I will put it all away – that day. I know, right? It’s also important for me to go through and really look at what I have and remember to use the things that I already have. I also hope to be able to craft a few things for myself this year.

  • 370
    Connie says:

    I’m determined to utilize stamps to return to my scrapbooking roots. There’s no reason I can’t “build” scrapbook embellishments from stamp images. I love cardmaking, but think my granddaughters would like more pages for their scrapbooks.

    This year I want to catch up on my scrapbooking and make my new blog http://beachorado.blogspot.com that i started the first of the year shine!

  • 373
    Becky P. says:

    My craft resolution is to learn how to sew. Currently, I can only work with a needle and thread in a very limited sense, and I have to ask my mom to make simple projects like bookmarks, etc. I am also resolving to buy more stamps/dies this year. I have enough paper to last a while.

  • 374
    Renate Hill says:

    Use what supplies I have; finish UFOs; give away the surplus without feeling guilty about having bought it in the first place.

  • 375
    Leah D says:

    I have a couple this year. One is to actual send *all* the cards I make and stop saving the “special” ones. And two is to keep learning new techniques. So thanks to the PTI team for all the inspiration!

  • 376
    MA says:

    Organize, purge, make a supply of cards for different occasions, and share the craft.

  • 377

    I’d like to send out (and donate) more cards this year. πŸ™‚

  • 378

    My craft resolution this year is to post a minimum of once a week on my blog, more if possible.
    I have all the supplies I have yet to try in 3 boxes-I will reach for those first.

  • 379
    Elizabeth B. says:

    Yes, my resolution this year is to do a better job of actually using my purchases rather than just being a collector! Thanks for another great release!!

  • 380
    Christine P. says:

    My resolution is to stop saving supplies for a special project! Every project is special and every supply can be replaced-usually with something even better!

  • 381
    Melissa Sibert says:

    My main craft resolution is to not buy any more stamping supplies with the exception of paper as I run low, but to use most of the many sets and embellishments I already own. I pray my willpower will be stronger than it normally is. Especially with all your new and fabulous products. πŸ™‚

  • 382
    Lisa H says:

    I have two craft resolutions for this year. The first is to make as many projects as I can with the products I already have (ok, beyond a ‘few’ new PTI stamp sets lol).
    The second is to craft on a more regular basis. I sometimes have trouble getting motivated, but perhaps it’s a chicken and egg thing and I’ll get more motivated by doing more, not vice-versa.

  • 383
    Louise says:

    I would like to work on being more creative and try new things with my paper crafting.

    I definitely will be trying to use all the ‘new’ supplies I have that have never seen the light of day. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Susan T says:

    I like to define my year in a word and this year my word is to CREATE. I am looking to be more creative in many different ways…New business..new me…and of course I will be creative in the craft department. Want to sell my creations.

    Marybeth L. says:

    Orginaze,and stay orginized ! Clean up after each card! ……no that will never happen . Make more cards to send just because! …..

  • 387
    Lyn says:

    My resolution has always been to actually use all the supplies – stamps, papers, tools, etc. – that I have purchased. I have (somewhat) organized my stash and realize that I have so much. Of course my other resolution is to win the lottery so I don’t have to work and will have all sorts of extra time to accomplish my first resolution!

  • 388
    DeAnna L says:

    Resolution…welllllll…have made myself a worthy hobby space and now I need to get in there and put all of my purchases to use. Have so much inspiration…need to get going on getting all the ideas “down on paper”…or maybe it’s “into paper”! HA!!!

  • 389
    Ellen Pool says:

    Yes, I do…I am a “newbie” crafter, and started our crafting collection with Cricuts, etc. for a hobby that my 7 year old and I could build together. I homeschool her, so we have a lot of time for fun things, and as she says “I live to craft!” πŸ˜‰ So my crafty resolution is to get really get started learning everything about this that I can, teach her as much as I can, and just have fun!

  • 390
    Carol says:

    My resolution is to buy products I love and resist the urge to get the latest and greatest…just because.

  • 391

    I have many crafting goals – try new techniques, get my supplies organized, make more cards, send more cards… But I think the biggest one for me is to start using some of the unopened or unused supplies from my stash, rather than just stick to my favorites. I have lots of supplies that need so serious love!! Thanks so much for such a fun release. Looking forward to playing with THESE new supplies! πŸ˜‰

  • 392

    I have to use every stamp set that I have this year and make sure that all those sets that haven’t seen any love in 2011 get a bit of attention!

  • 393
    Flo says:

    My resolution this year is to be not afraid that I’ll wreck the paper, and create more. I have a great collection of supplies.

  • 394

    My resolution is to use my stash and give away what I don’t use. I’m hoping to de-clutter my home and craft room.

  • 395
    Julie in Edmonds says:

    1. Get rid of things I’m storing and not using
    2. Learn how to use my camera in manual mode
    3. More scrapbooking!

  • 396
    Daisy L says:

    We had recently moved to another state and my resolution was to get my craft room in order and working condition. I’ve made great headway on that, purging unused to sell, pass on and give away. I’ve gotten to stamp and scrap and love the clean area to work in now!

  • 397
    Carol Celeste says:

    Wow! Looking at all the resolutions, so many sound like ones I should make, but will not follow through with.
    So, instead, I will resolve to just enjoy my hobby, including all the addictions and compulsions that go along with it.

  • 398
    Denise E says:

    Yes, my crafty ‘resolution’ (I’d like to call it a ‘commitment’, because I am committed to getting it done!) is to organize my new craft area/desk and to keep current with Project Life this year. I also want to make handmade cards for all my families birthdays this year – no more store bought cards for me! =o) Happy 2012 everyone!

  • 399
    Dawn says:

    I only made one resolution this year and it was to fill my home with beautiful things I made myself! (So far I’ve made a set of curtains.)

    I didn’t think of it at the time, but I should have added “to give beautiful homemade gifts to those I love” because I have already started on plans to make stamped sets of Christmas cards, thank you notes, and individual birthday cards. In fact, I am appending that to my resolution as of today! =)=)

  • 400
    diana says:

    My resolution is to use up more of my supply stash or pass it on for others to use. This will free up space for new stamps and help me build up a supply of cards ready when i need them. Maybe I’ll also be able to organize my stash at the same time. Thanks for the chance to win some new PTI goodies!

  • 401
    Laura Isham says:

    My craft resolution is to use it MORE. I am very far behind on my scrapbooks, and I really want to catch up. I also don’t want to be making cards and projects the night before I want to give them!

  • 402
    Sonia says:

    My craft resolutions for 2012 include no longer purchasing as much designer papers; playing along with & entering more card challenges and magazine design calls; and the big one – **hopefully** getting a card published!

  • 403
    Annamaria Miller says:

    MY resolution for this year is to make cards ahead of time so that I have them on hand. I would also like to try some new techniques.

    I want to be able to finish my 2012 photo a day album that I started. Wish me luck!

  • 406
    Dulce Alcantara says:

    My New Years resolution is to use what I love and get rid of what I don’t.

  • 407
    Katie says:

    YES! My resolution is to make at least one Christmas card /tag a week and one other card (birthday, get well, thinking of you) a week and build up a stash rather than waiting until I need one to make it! Of course, I will be using PTI stamps….LOVE them!!! πŸ™‚

  • 408
    Sandy Vincent says:

    My resolution is to get into my craft room and start creating! I have lots of PTI stamps that need to be inked up! (And my stash keeps growing!)

  • 409
    Jacque D. says:

    My resolution is to go through my stuff and see what I have and actually use it before buying any new stuff. And if I buy something new, to make sure it coordinates with what I already have. I have a habit of seeing something and just buying it without seeing if I already have it or if it even goes with what I have.

    Rebecca G says:

    This year I am learning to sew.

  • 411
    Becky H says:

    I want to make more Scrapbook pages that incorporate Stamping in them.

  • 412
    Mia says:

    This year I intend to remember EVERY birthday with a handmade card. In previous years I made it through a few months of keeping this resolution, then ended up slacking off. I also want to create a bit more fearlessly, instead of always worrying whether something looks “just right” to the point where I don’t end up finishing what I started.

  • 413
    stampyblock says:

    To get organized! I am on my way but still have a lot of work ahead of me.

    I have to finish the scrapbooks I have for my three kids and I have to use what I already have instead of always buying new things all the time.

    My resolution is simple, if I get it out, put it away when I’m finished. Less Mess!

  • 416
    Lizzie Jones says:

    I have two resolutions this year: one is to keep my studio relatively neat and the other is to post to my blog at least once a week. Two weeks into the new year my studio is still tidy and I’ve posted on my blog three times. 2012 is looking pretty good from where I’m standing!

  • 417
    Cristtina says:

    1. To send out more cards. 2. To watch my budget. Of course, PTI always makes that last one hard. πŸ™‚

  • 418
    Annie says:

    My craft resolution is to use the products that I have (I have many) for my projects. I seem to keep buying products with the intent that one day I will use it. I will “shop” in my craft room.

  • 419
    Rita says:

    Organize, organize & organize! That is my goal for this year & I’m determined to get it done! I LOVE your NEW release for this month….AWESOME!!! Oh, how I would LOVE to win this, thanks so much for the chance!

  • 420
    Pamelamma says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to get all those stamps out and use them! I have my “go-to” stamps that I reuse over and over, but I also have some sets that I have only used once or twice. I want to put those to good use this year. It helps when I see the DT or other members use stamps that I own. I always get inspired to dig those stamp sets out. Here’s to lots of great stamping this year!

  • 421
    jaime aldridge says:

    My resolution this year is to stop buying stuff that I already have…like more flower stamps. I have a million different flower stamps. I don’t really need any more. So, I am going to try my hardest NOT to put the new ff set in my cart this month even though it is only $5!! πŸ˜‰ I just need to love the stuff I have already. PTI will test me every month with all of their wonderful new sets, but I will try to have control! lol

  • 422

    My resolution is to clean-up my craft room and KEEP it clean. I was so busy making things before the holidays I have yet to have quality time in my space. That needs to stop! I need to NOT allow that to happen in the future.

    Tammie J. says:

    I want to build up an inventory of cards so they are ready to go when I need them. Too often I get caught with a timeline so tight I simply give up trying to create my own cards, which is senseless given the amount of products and ideas at my disposal.

  • 424
    Kris Prokopec says:

    My “craft” resolution would be to be more organized! I need to organize my supplies and get my creative juices flowing!

  • 425
    Lisa Alonzo says:

    I would have to say that I am going to try to use my craft supplies that have gone by the wayside, or been buried under new purchases…it’s pretty bad when you don’t actually know what you have!!

  • 426

    I have a few crafty resolutions, but the biggest are:
    – Buy less use more
    – Submit to more publication calls

  • 427

    My biggest priority is getting organized and then just getting things done…I want to be able to put a dent in my supplies this year. I want to donate to local organizations to help them with their fundraising…Sounds doable …lets hope I can stick to it…Happy New Year!!!

  • 428
    Villy Vilhjalms says:

    My resolution this year is to try to do more than last year πŸ™‚ I really want to add more pages to my daughters album as well as create more cards.

    I really want to try more techniques and this year IΒ΄m going to focus a little bit on hybrid scrapbooking as well.

    Ohhh and I just have to buy some more goodies, especially stamps and dies πŸ˜‰

    jeannine says:

    it’s not exactly a resolution, but after rushing to make 5 nov. & dec. birthday cards i vowed to make my cards in advance so i’m not rushing during the holiday season. also, i plan to make some Christmas cards this year. thanks.

  • 430
    Karin says:

    Get organized and re do my craft space!

  • 431
    Donette B says:

    I had several resolutions…first was to make 1 Christmas card a week so I’m not scrambling come December to do them all at once. Next, was to ink up those stamps that have been neglected and basically start using more of my stash instead of hording it. And lastly to make more gift sets to give away.

  • 432
    Julie says:

    My craft resolution is to try to use most of the supplies I have (paper mainly) so I can make room for new stuff. I also would like to make a card with every one of my PTI sets, an interesting challenge as I have quite a few. πŸ™‚

  • 433
    Brenda says:

    I want to be smarter about what I buy! I also want to focus more on masculine stamp sets as well as continuing giving away sets I no longer use.

  • 434
    Kristen :-) says:

    I am taking the lead from another forum member, and *attempting* to use a different stamp set each week to make some cards. This way – some “forgotten” stamps will see some ink πŸ™‚ Its a great way to jump start my mojo! Thank you for another wonderful release!

  • 435
    April W says:

    Amazing release!!

    I do have a crafty goal for the year and it’s to create at least one new layout each week. I tried last year, and although I did create over 52 layouts, it wasn’t each week so it didn’t really meet my goal. The point of it all is to make sure I’m getting crafty all year long! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

    My “one word” for this year is MODERATION. Everything in moderation. My craft shopping, cards, layouts etc. I need to shop wisely and use the things that I buy.

  • 437
    Emily W. says:

    My crafting resolution is to get organized, pare down the things I no longer use or really love, and only buy those things that I really KNOW will get used in my craft room!

  • 438
    Ellie B says:

    My resolution was to do more stamping… find the time and make it happen. We’ll see how it goes πŸ™‚

  • 439
    Michelle Leone says:

    My resolution is to have a prettier, and much more organized, crafting space. This would require a good amount of purging, donating, etc. and would facilitate more efficient crafting! Maybe next time I lose that tiny “m” Block Alphabet die I’ll be able to find it in less time!

  • 440
    Broni says:

    My original craft-related resolution was to not buy more than a set $ amount per month…..but I can see I’m breaking that here tonight!

  • 441
    Donna B says:

    I told myself come the New Year that I was going to make sure and ink up all those stamps sets that have yet to be taken from their packaging. I can’t resist buying them so I better start using them.

  • 442

    I’ve had a really hard 2011 so my 2012 resolution is to craft more and blog more about what I have crafted. I started last week, and i’m loving it πŸ™‚

  • 443
    erin t says:

    I would love to say I’ll be a neater crafer and clean up in a more timely manner, but that’s not a very realistic goal. It would be great to use all the stuff I have too… But, on a whole, no, I don’t have a crafty resolution.

  • 444

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to concentrate on putting all of my beautiful stamps and papers to good use by scrapbooking some more layouts!

  • 445
    Cassie Brumbaugh says:

    My goal is to make and send more “Thinking about you” cards.

    This year I want to explore more ways to use my stamps for art journaling and other projects that challenge me to try new techniques and styles.

  • 447
    Elizabeth says:

    My aim is to keep the projects I am working on separated (each in its own large envelope) so that I do not waste time repeatedly sorting them out. I started doing this prior to the New Year, and, so far, it’s working.

  • 448
    nicky says:

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to clean out the old papers/ embellishments etc. and donate them to the school I work at. The 6th graders LOVE to use these on special books and projects to take home.

  • 449
    kathleena says:

    My goal is to have more cards on hand for when I need them. I have missed a few birthdays this year because I forgot about them until the last minute and didn’t have any cards on hand. I have even made a perpetual birthday calendar this year that is displayed in my office so whenever I have free time, I can make cards specifically for the birthdays coming up!

  • 450
    Amy Smith says:

    This past year I made so many Christmas cards for the church and for customers that I didn’t get any of my own out! So this year my crafting resolution is to make 1 Christmas card a week for a year to build up a stash. Here’s hoping I can stick to it!

  • 451
    Kathy Grimsdale says:

    My crafting resolution is to enjoy the process of creating. I don’t want to worry about deadlines, or finishing a specific number of projects. However, having said that my other goal for this year is to finish my Dad’s quilt for his birthday in July. I hand quilt so I may not have as much time to finish this as you think! πŸ˜‰

  • 452
    Kanani says:

    My resolution is to buy less and user more of wat i have!

  • 453

    Mine is more of a list of goals than resolutions. I want to blog more, get my crafty to do list finished off (mostly handmade gifts), make some cards for my stash, enter some craft shows, submit some projects for publication and actually mail cards for church members who are sick or grieving. Big list huh?

  • 456
    Karen Ramsey says:

    My resolution is the same as last year and hopefully this is the year I can make it happen. I want to start a crafty blog, so that I can make some new crafty friends and participate in blog hops. Also, to weed out some of the old to make room for the new.

  • 457

    This year I want to make more scrapbook pages and less cards. I also want to focus on my DTs projects more, use all the paper that I have, and -time permitting- participate in more challenges… That’s a lot of resolutions but the main one is really taking the time to develop my pics and scrapbook those memories away! πŸ˜€
    Wonderful release once again! Thank you for this opportunity to win… πŸ˜€

    TracyTracy says:

    My resolution is to use use use and enjoy instead of admire and touch and treasure my stuff. This is going to involve bringing my craft area upstairs from the basement, and buying stamps to send my creations (which I am sure will be wonderful) to the ones I love. I do have Facebook now to give me a week’s notice of birthdays, so I can get those cards made and sent!!!!

    I haven’t bothered by resolutions in a long time! However, I have seen where folks try to use every stamp in their stash – I really like that idea and will probably give that a try!

    Bette manning says:

    I need to organize my craft room and really go through it all and get rid of all the old stuff. I love paper and can’t seem to give it away, I might use it someday! I need to make more time to spend there, I really enjoy it.

    Donna C says:

    I want to use every set that has not been used in the last year, at least once. If it no longer thrills me, LOL, it will go up for sale. I am also going to make a good dent in all the designer paper I have.

  • 471
    Mary Millar says:

    My commitment for this year is to open immediately and put to use immediately whatever new item I purchase. That means I can’t purchase anything without planning a significant block of time to go home and put it right to use. Coincidentally that means that even gathering the mail may require me to open my purchase from Papertrey and
    so totally get right down to the task of creating something absolutely delightful!

    Cathy Weber says:

    I learned a huge lesson from last year. Although I made a huge pile of cards last year, I was in such a rush to photograph them and share them on my blog that I did not finish the inside. I know, I have most of the Inside/Out PTI series so I should have been able to make fabulous insides, but I just didn’t. This year, I am going to make it a priority!

    Karin Fidler says:

    My 2012 crafty goal is to use what I love instead of hoarding it for something “special”. Every occasion is special, so have decided to use what I love to make it even more special. And, like many others, to re-home the “extra” supplies and old “not-my-style-anymore” supplies.

    My crafty resolution is to eBay about 80% of my craft room that’s already well underway. I don’t need to have everything out there anymore and know what I like and will use.

    To actually use some of things I have in my room and keep up with not buying all the time.

    I’m new to the world of card making (and crafts in general) and i don’t have a resolution… but i would love to learn how to find more uses of the tools that i have purchased for this hobby and and find the best way to organize everything in the small space that i have. Thanks for the chance!

  • 479
    Emily M. says:

    It’s not necessarily a “crafty” resolution… I guess it could be, as it will help with my scrapbooking. I have vowed to take at least one picture per day. My husband bought me a beautiful Nikon for my birthday last year, and I have only used it to take pictures of my crafty creations, so I have resolved to take a picture of something every day… I will attempt to make these into a scrapbook. We’ll see how long this lasts. We’re only 2 weeks in.

    I didn’t really make a bona fide resolution for this, but I’d like to make my Scrapbook Nook more organized. Like, sifting through the ridiculous piles of paper so I have more space to actually CRAFT.

  • 482
    Toni Storie says:

    I have had craft resolutions in the past about creating everyday and getting my craft room organized. I don’t have a craft resolution this year, but I am working with the “reduce” for my whole life this year as a resolution. I have much clutter and I feel better when things are a bit more organized. So, I will also apply reduce to my craft room too.

  • 483
    Sarah says:

    My craft resolution is to well..craft. I went back to work full time this year and I have not yet found the balance for keeping everyone happy and finding time to craft. I am working on it. πŸ™‚

  • 484
    Lori says:

    My goal this year is to USE the stuff I have and to build up a supply of “go to” cards for those situations that seemingly pop up out of nowhere. It would be nice to be ahead of the game instead of always scrambling to get something together!

    Geri G says:

    I usually don’t make any resolutions cuz I always break them within a day or two, but if I did it would definitely be to send out more cards! This year I am also going to take blank cards to the hospital and personal care homes so that they can be used for the patients.

    Yvette S says:

    My resolution this year to to stay caught up on my scrapbooking, and to ACTUALLY MAIL most of the cards I’ve been making out to people!

    I should probably be going through the piles of supplies as well, but we’ll leave that for next year haha!

    Love the question. I actually put my craft resolutions down on paper a few weeks ago. My first resolutions is to scrapbook more. My goal is a two page layout a week. I also plan to submit some of my cards for publication, and finally to blog more!

    Oh boy do I! I am in the process of redoing and majorly organizing my craft room. I want my time in there to be as fun and productive as possible. Getting it in tip-top shape will help me with that goal! Thanks for all the wonderful products and inspiration this month!

    Lisa P says:

    Love the new release review! It was so nice to see so many beautiful projects as I scrolled down to the comment box!

    I definitely have a craft resolution for this year! It began last week with a clean and purge in my craft room. I hold on to ‘stuff’ for too long, even when I know I am not going to use it!! I had so many old ‘things’ from when I first started scrapbooking and I just needed to get rid of them to have a fresh crafting start. I also plan to keep more up-to-date with my crafty endeavours…I am getting so far behind, and with a new baby on the way we all know that is only going to get worse!! haha … MUST KEEP ON TOP OF THINGS!!!

  • 498
    Rachel B says:

    Of course! I resolve to get more organized and stay that way! My desk is always a mess and I have to clean it before I can start a new project. I am trying to make myself take the time to clean when done so when an idea hits, I don’t have to take the time to clean first!
    Love ALL the projects made this month! Can’t wait to order the Mat Stack 5 collection!

    Diane Hover says:

    Oh yes, I have several…but first and foremost is to get organized…or to keep it organized…I am a messy crafter….and then to keep getting new goodies…it helps to motivate me!! Wonderful projects from the DT as always…I have so many new ideas…thank you!!

  • 503

  • 504

    To carve out a little more time for crafting in my busy schedule.

  • 507
    Lori Oglesby says:

    My resolution is to make more time for paper crafting & to make more time for myself. I am going to try to chill out & relax. I’m going to try to quit being so obsessive about my house & spend more time crafting to relax. Paper crafting has to be cheaper than therapy & I’m going to need therapy is I don’t learn how to stay a little more low key!!!!!!

  • 508
    Beth says:

    I have SO many! I want to use up all of my supplies in my stash, get my projects done early so I’m not up all night before the holidays rushing, get published in a magazine, start designing my own digital stamps and templates, master the art of using my Gypsy, and the list goes on and on…….

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  • 509

  • 513
    Diana F says:

    I do have a craft resolution for the new year and that is to get organized. Since my introduction to the world of cardmaking (which has only been about four years now)I have acquired a lot of supplies and I need to make some sense of it all. Right now it is scattered here and there. I’ll know I have something and end up spending over half my crafting time looking for it.

  • 514
    Angela NJ says:

    My crafty resolution is to use the things I’ve got. Having said this, I’m still planning to do a little shopping tonight because there are a few things I just have to add to my PTI collection. Thanks for the fantastically varied projects this month!

  • 515

    My craft resolution for 2012 is to complete more scrapbook layouts. I need to catch up on my scrapbook that this past couple years been left behind.

  • 516
    Sarah Fisher says:

    My goal for this year is to get caught up on my scrapbooking and plan ahead better on my cardmaking for special occassions. Last year, I had waited until the last minute too many times to make a card and I felt that hindered my creativity. I resolve to do better in 2012!

  • 517
    Regina says:

    I am resolving to try at least one new technique or style every week. I’m always so inspired by other crafters and think ‘oh, what a great idea!’ and file it away somewhere, only never to be looked at again. I’d love to mix it up a little and see where my creativity takes me!

  • 518
    Kim says:

    Oh, I always have a craft resolution and it always the same one. To get more scrapbooking done! I don’t get to spend much time crafting, so I need to be more organized. I need to spend less time looking and more time doing!

  • 519

    My craft resolution is to organize! I really need to go through my supplies and get rid of the things I do not use. This will help me see what I have and have forgotten about – all the things I just “had to have”! Hopefully this will lead to organizing my time a bit better also, and not have me rushing to do last minute cards (hate that!).

  • 520
    Patti L says:

    I have a few projects & techniques I want to try in the new year for all the different crafts I do…stamping, scrapping, sewing, crocheting, loom knitting & embroidery! But mostly just seeing projects thru to completion!

  • 521

    My craft resolution is to purge and organize my stuff, do more scrapbooking with the supplies that I have, and to do a better job of sticking to my crafting budget (the last part is going to be really hard!).

  • 522

    My craft resolution for the new year is to try and use more of what I currently have and do less impulsive shopping.

  • 523
    Amy Zwierz says:

    To devote more time to crafting and try to involve some friends to spread my love of crafting.

  • 524
    Connie F. says:

    I have many….Organize my crafting space, use each item I order from PTI at least once before I put them away and order more, make 10 cards each month and try to get some scrapbooking done. So far, I sadly haven’t worked on any of them – I think it’s Christmas burnout (at least that’s the excuse I’m using today!) I love PTI and am so thankful for all the inspiration you ladies share with us each month – you have made cardmaking sooooo much fun for me!

  • 525

  • 526
    Kristen says:

    I have made a crafting resolution this year and I have already begun (which is more than I can say for many past resolutions). I am gifting items that I don’t use. I have already cleaned out tons of classic ink colors and wood stamp sets that I have collected over the years. My daughters’ girl scout troop, kids’ art teacher, classroom teachers, and sunday school teachers are all enjoying my resolution. It has been exciting to find things that I want to use but are “buried under” the other stuff. And it has been fun to see others so excited by “new” toys.

    I have several craft resolutions for this year. I am having a new baby so my first and foremost goal is to finish up my youngest son’s first year album before the new baby is born! I also am planning to purge/organize my craft stuff before baby comes in May. I want to catch up on putting photos in photo albums. And my ongoing craft goal is to keep documenting those extra special moments and memories (on a monthly basis) so they can be treasured for years to come! I would also love to get up the courage to attempt “A Week in the Life” or “Project Life”. They seem so overwhelming to me but such a great way to document the everyday along with the extra special stuff. Thanks so much for the chance to win some new and fabulous PTI goodies…love the new releases! πŸ™‚

  • 532

    While I’m mainly a scrapbooker I really want to start making all of the cards I give. I’m going to try and make tons of thank you and get well cards so that I can send one when needed. Thanks for the chance to win some of your beautiful stamps.

  • 534
    Renee S. says:

    Where to begin … I need to use my stash of supplies more often. I love PTI stamps and have many of them. It’s time to use some of the older sets I own whether for scrapbook layouts or cards. The stamps are all so versatile. I just have to pull out those older sets and get to work!

  • 535
    Pat A. says:

    I would like to resolve to make the cards I need way in advance of needing them…but this never happens! There is something about having a deadline that spurs my creativity!

  • 536

  • 537

    I have a resolution to use the things in my stash, and to make at least one Xmas card a month. The holidays are so stressful and busy that I like to be prepared!

  • 538
    Amy Papale says:

    My craft resolution this year is to not limit myself to one particular craft. It is easy for me to get caught up in one type of crafting and I miss out on other forms that could be just as enjoyable for me. I love to be creative in many different areas but tend to put “blinders” on when I get involved with one particular craft,

  • 539

    Haha- use more of the things I buy! Inc, PTI- I seem to have not near enuf time to stamp just for fun, with the deadlines I have, so that is another resolution- carve out some time each week ‘just for fun’ stamping. I am also going to *try* to get published- meet the deadlines for submissions….go tru my inventory and donate unused things to my son’s school’s scrapbooking club:)

  • 540
    Linda says:

    My resolution is to use all the wonderful PTI stamp sets that I bought last year. Some of them have never seen ink and I want to make sure I use and enjoy every one of them!

  • 541
    Steph says:

    I resolve to join in the Holiday Central group and make a few Christmas cards each month. I had all of my supplies and stamps laid out for Holiday cards when we had a tragic death in our family in early November. Grief prevented me from creating one holiday card this year. So definitely want to get them made well in advance this year so I am prepared before the holidays.

  • 542
    Jan Garber says:

    At the beginning of the month, I posted my resolution on my blog. That way, I feel more accountable to myself and my blogger friends! I decided that I would promise to make more cards for charity to the local cancer treatment hospital that is only minutes away. So far, I have made several for them and have already mailed out more than last month to my list of friends and relatives who I try to stay in touch with. New products would indeed help with these efforts! And this new realease is so perfect for the cards I’m making to donate!

  • 543
    Roxanne says:

    Having also been remodeling through 2010 and 2011, I am hoping to start a blog this year to record my projects and share them. I keep busy with work and two young kids, but I think it would be a neat learning experience and I always love seeing other people’s blogs. Thanks for the opportunity, there have been some amazing things released in January!

  • 546
    Diana Yockey says:

    The last couple of years I have gotten away from creating things that I really want to do or try. I seem to fill my time with making things for school, church or events, (which is enjoyable and certainly worthwhile). I have an “inspiration file” with ideas I would like to use. I would also like to get back to organizing friends over for papercrafting and lunch.

  • 547
    Jen C says:

    My crafty resolution is to create at least two cards a week…with one of them being a Christmas card. That way in December I’ll have a big stack of beautiful cards to send to special people and won’t have to send out Costco photo cards to the people I love πŸ™‚

  • 552
    Erin T says:

    To keep increasing my collection of stamps and dies! I have plenty, but constantly love the feeling of mixing old faces with new product. It’s very rewarding to make card and then see someone post online using the same materials and then I get inspired to do itall over again with those materials. Everyone posts newer product and I just love it.

  • 558
    janet wilson says:

    Crikey!!! I am such a procrastinator…. but I would like to craft more and use the immense hoard of supplies I have accrued. I get overwhelmed by all the incredible inspiration I look at and it puts me off (well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it – LOL.

    I have two crafty resolutions for this year. 1) I would love to be in a design team. I have submitted to a few but have yet to be accepted, so I will keep trying. 2) I would also love to be published. I have never submitted to a magazine, self doubt has kept me from this dream. But 2012 is the year that I stop second guessing myself and just go for it. Great release, all the cards and projects created have been amazing.

  • 577
    Carol R says:

    My craft resolution is to use what I have! I horde all my embellishments and designer paper and this must STOP! And I also want to make my Christmas ornaments using the wonderful material I have stored so neatly away. Lots to do and we shall see how I keep this goal/s by November.

    I want to make a big dent in the transformation of my “junk” room into a CRAFT ROOM! I’m not saying it will be done by the end of the year, but I want to see some progress anyway!

    Sandra V. says:

    I actually don’t have a craft resolution. But if I had to have one, I would say that I need to try different techniques and do a little more thinking outside the box. Just like we have seen the oh so fabulous designers here do. Like taking the front & center die and using it as a card, instead of a cute bag.:)

  • 581
    Vanessa says:

    My crafty resolution is to make something crafty every week. So far it’s been great especially since PTI and its designers have so much creative inspiration!

    Kathy R. says:

    I haven’t made a formal resolution, but my plan is to transform my spare bedroom into my craft room. Hopefully then I will actually be able to use my supplies instead of just store them. Time to get busy!

    My craft resolutions are to try different techniques, and to finish my 2011 scrapbooking…

    Brenda R says:

    Yes, it is not to place any orders to PTI despite how much I like the new releases UNTIL my die is mailed to me that I ordered on NOV. 15. The last response that I got from your company was that you would get to it when you can. Kind of sounds like a brush off to me

    Mine is to scrapbook more and incorporate my stamps into my layouts.

    Dee says:

    My New Year’s resolution has already been broken – I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any designer papers that come in pads as I use less than half of the papers that are in the set. But of course, I went and bought a pad as I loved every one of the papers and they were half off (like that really justifies the purchase!). Part two of my resolution is to use up my already large collection of DP – I find I’m using it less and less as I like the more simple backgrounds and I’ve started stamping more to make my own DP!

  • 588
    Greta H says:

    My resolution is to submit more cards for publication, even if it means not entering as many on-line challenges.
    PS–love how easy you make it for us to find the new products & projects!

    Elizabeth K says:

    My resolution is to use some of my older “must have”
    set more. I plan on having some of these sets sitting
    on my stamping table so they will be right in front of
    me, but next to my new “must have” sets. Our scrapbooking store takes donations of crafting items
    for a local charity that does crafting with children.
    I plan on going through my stash of papers and embellisments and donating what I’m not using.

    Patti says:

    I have resolved to “Use It or Lose It” to thin out my stash. I cannot buy something new until I have used something old – or found it a new home. So I am guessing that gives me about 12 hours to get busy since I have quite a bit on my wish list for this release tonight!

  • 600

    I’m really going to be much more selective in what I buy and buy less. I have so many stamps and papers that need to be used before I buy any more. We’ll see how long I can stick to this resolution!

  • 601
    JoAnn Dettbarn says:

    I hope to put together packets of cards from my stash so that I have gifts ready when I need them. In order to do this, I will have to start producing more cards! Some of my earlier creations seem pretty primitive to me now so I hope to do some new designs that make me proud!!! Your ideas inspire me…

    danni reid says:

    i only have one this year. the economy has placed unbelievable financial strains on our schools/children.
    my goal is selling all the cards i create and donating 100% of the sales to our local high school, middle and elementary schools through Boosters organizations and ASB transportation funds that have been established. transportation in california has been cut (no busses for the kids to and from school or for extracurricular activities spelling bee, field trips, math counts, any/all sports trips) we are trying to raise money to run the school Excursions for sports trips and all extracurricular activities for the kids. while it’s not a personal goal, i have never loved creating more and feel blessed to be able to help all these kids.

    Beth says:

    YES I do.. Thank You for asking! πŸ™‚ My biggest one is going to be clean and organize my craft room.. I want to be able to USE the treasures I buy!! πŸ™‚ And to just ENJOY the creating process without over thinking my creative process! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year PTI gang!!!

  • 608
    Alex says:

    I love making things for holidays, especially Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine’s, so I am always crafting like crazy in the months adding up to the holidays. My craft resolution this year was to craft more without the inspiration of the holidays. I really need to focus on my scrapbooking and year-round cards.

    Make a card a day, that’s my craft resolution. So far it isn’t working so well !

    My resolution is to start using all the fabulous stuff I have bought over the last couple of years. I will spend one weekend a month making cards or scrap booking. I have some awesome Papertrey stamps and dies that have yet to be used.

  • 611
    Charlene R says:

    I need to start making more cards instead of just looking at blogs. I would also love to start scrapbooking. I would also like to have cards on hand as I always seem to rush at the last minute to produce a nice card. If I could start them sooner maybe I could be a little more creative! Love this release! Thanks PTI for the inspiration! Truly Amazing!

  • 612
    Heidi S says:

    My craft resolution is to make time to be creative. I’ve been putting crafting on the back burner so much that I had forgotten how much joy it brings to me and to those that I give the cards/gifts to. When I made a card recently it was such a pleasure to create and give.

  • 613

    My goal this year is to get published in a magazine by the end of 2012. I’ve submitted cards before, but not often enough to be chosen……..so, maybe this year will be the year!

  • 614

    My resolution is probably a common one, but it is to resist the urge to hoard more patterned paper and to actually use all the cute, brand new stuff I have. I’m not sure I have the will-power though–I would probably have to resist going into stores and visiting my favorite blogs which I don’t see happening. πŸ™‚

    Sew4kim says:

    I have several resolutions but right now the biggest on my plate is figuring out what to do with all my scraps, I have two boxes full. I just hate throwing away anything I might be able to use, but after a while I dont even remember what paper it was and that makes it harder to include in my blog which then makes me use more new stuff, aaahhh what a vicious circle!

  • 618
    Kim Heggins says:

    My resolution was to clean my craft room, every drawer, bin, shelf, desk, everything! And donote the things I have not used in years. It took me an entire week but I did it and have to say it is such a nice feeling to one, have clean and organized room and two, give supplies away to others who will show them some love.

  • 621
    MARY H says:

    My craft resolution is to use my supplies more. I have been real busy with organizing (probably because I am comfortable with that) but I need to get out of my comfort zone and experiment and play around more.

    Nina Yang says:

    I am excited about this release! One of my new year craft resolution is to clean my craft room and put things away immediately after I use them! At least to have half of my craft table showing up all the time! Now… It is still completely covered…. πŸ˜‰

    My resolution is to push myself to try new things this year – to get outside my comfort zone. As part of this, I plan to participate in more challenges. Lots of fun in store!

  • 632

    My resolution is to spend time at least four times a week in my craft room…whether it’s to stamp, organize, plan projects, whatever…and for several good reasons. I am so fortunate to have an amazing collection of supplies – some that have never been used, and I’m intent on using them this year! Also, it’s a great stress reliever…and I’m much happier when I’m creating something. I also want to get way ahead of the holidays this year and create my projects all throughout the year, so it’s less hectic when the holidays do arrive. I also want to purge some supplies that aren’t being used and find a good home for them. Happy New Year!!

    My New Year’s “resolution” is rather contradictory, I want to use up the hobby supplies I have AND I want to start a few new hobbies. So, needless to say, I won’t be saving any money this year.

    After getting my new supplies organized (hooray for Christmas), my resolution is to design and make a new card every Friday.

  • 636

    I have several: Become more organized; purge things I am not using; find time to make more cards and have them available when I need them instead of making them in a panic at the last minute.

  • 639
    Janie c says:

    My resolutionn would be to give away the supplies I no longer use and use the supplies that I have before buying more and more stuff.

    Therefore, if you would like to help me start the new year with my resolution, you could pick me and then it’s a win-win πŸ™‚

    Bevyb says:

    I have several goals and these sort of tie together.
    First, is to organize. Review what I have. Things I don’t or will never use, donate to a school. Put things in their place so that I do know where I can reach for say that die, stamp or paper! i made a start in 2011, but I need to complete and maintain in 2012.
    Second, use what I have once I can find it, I can use it. Of course PTI is an exception, because each release brings something I must have.
    Third, particapte in more challenges

    I have resolved to clean out my crafting cupboard, of course to make room for new stuff! πŸ™‚ But seriously, I am thinking of teaching a class on cardmaking to some middle school and high school students, so my resolution is to work diligently on making two accessible cards a month for that endeavor. It will be the most fun lesson planning I have ever done. πŸ™‚

    My New Year resolution is to use those “never inked” stamps and to organize my supplies. I am constantly buying crafts that I already own :o)
    The January release is very exciting and the gorgeous projects by the DT are so inspiring. Thank you so very much for the chance to win this amazing prize package, PTI!

  • 660

    Yes. My craft resolution is to FOCUS. I have lots of stuff I have never used, technigues I have yet to try, you know how it goes. The www offers so many wonderful ideas and inspirations, it can be overwhelming, so I want to focus on one technique or one stamp at a time and remember this is supposed to be FUN!

    I’ve spent the better part of 2011 focusing on health and getting back in shape. Crafting took a bit of a break in my list of things to do. 2012 crafting is a big resolution of mine. Determined to do at least one page/card per month :). Determined to succeed!!!!

    Reorganize my stamping area is always at the top of the list, but other than buying new stamp sets and dies, I am going to try and use all of my other supplies (and I’ve got a lot!) before getting anything new. Purge and repurpose is my New Year’s theme.

  • 665
    Martha D says:

    No formal resolution, just a desire to spend more time in my craft room actually crafting. It would be nice to make lots of cards and have a supply of them ready, so I am not making something quickly at the last minute.

  • 666
    Janet says:

    My resolution was to use what I have and resist ordering so many new things–after I ordered new stamp sets and dies and paper in December. Then I ordered 3 stamp sets in January. With this release, I am afraid I’ll have to try again in 2013…and enjoy every second of giving in so early.

  • 667

    I just want to create more this year. I’ve started Project Life and am also on a Creative Team so they both will help keep me on track with my goal.

  • 669
    Cindi Loizeaux says:

    My craft goal this year is to improve my coloring skills and to create a larger stash of cards for myself. I think I want to leave off the sentiments so that I can have more options when choosing from my stash and then stamp the sentiments as needed. And finally, I want to get some scrapbook projects completed.

    My crafty goal is to make time to craft. I have a six month old daughter and I hope she will settle into a nap routine sonner rather than later, to give me some time to myself. I have planned out so many cards in my head but haven’t had much time to craft lately πŸ™

    I made just a few cards last year because I wanted to focus more on tutorials and learning. I hope I can apply what I have learned this year and send out more cards.

  • 678

    My New Years crafting resolution is to make time each month to craft. I’m a;ways telling myself that I want to do this or that but it never happens. To make it happen, 3 friends of mine have scheduled two days out of each month to get together to craft and learn new crafting skills. We have even created a blog to post what we are doing and how everyone else can join in on our crafting fun. I’m expecting a really good year!

  • 679
    Anne B says:

    My resolution didn’t last that long. I had resolved to try and make more use of what I already have, but that was before I saw some of the January sets, including ‘Simply Jane’. I’m such an Austen fan that I just can’t resist it. Oh well, there’s always next year πŸ™‚

    Plan to incorporate more of my patterned papers in my cardmaking. Also to get a stash made in advance vs. always rushing around to get an appropriate card made for the occasion.

    Lea Lawson says:

    My crafty resolution is to send out more of the cards that I make each year! I want to get better at sending out thank you’s to people who bless me, sympathy for people who just need a kind word in a hard situation, and birthdays too! I am good about email and such, but horrible about actually sending anything. I want to be so much better about that…I want people I love to know that I appreciate them, and think about them.

    Kristie H says:

    My crafting resolution is to try to use more of my stamp sets more creatively. I want to stretch myself creatively, develop more skills, figure out if some of my older sets still work for my developing style. Some things I bought 5 years ago really aren’t me. Those things need to go away so that I don’t get buried in stuff but have room to be creative, both physically and mentally.
