Craft Room Update – STORAGE by Stampin’ Up

I have been working on my craft room for quite some time.  I studied, measured, sketched, searched until I was ready to throw the notebook across the room – multiple times!  But I finally had a sketch that I loved! I have a fairly small craft space.  It is actually the sunroom in my apartment (see, who says you don’t have room for a stamping business in an apartment?!).  So I have had to be quite creative to maximize my little space.  In comes Stamp-n-Storage, Ikea, Amazon, and STORAGE by Stampin’ Up to the rescue!

Last year, I focused on my desk.  I wanted a bigger work surface and my most used items at my reach.  (More on that later).  This year,  I have focused on finishing my desktop area, and then on my other storage.  This project has expanded to the entire apartment as I had stuff stuck EVERYWHERE!!  I am so happy with my space that I want to begin sharing some of my space with you each week – look for Craft Room Updates each Saturday!  

For my first post I wanted to focus specifically on how I am using some of our STORAGE by Stampin’ Up!  This product line was just released the first of this month and is so awesome!  Now, I already had several great storage solutions in my craft room, but I was lacking a satisfying solution for my Blends!  I just hadn’t found that perfect item… at least, not until Stampin’ Up released their new Storage line! I just love how inspiring they are in my space!  Let’s face it, some days, we need all the inspiration we can get!  And they are right at my fingertips!

Check out my Blends storage before…

And now…colors are so much easier to find and keep where I can find them!

Don’t you just love it too?!  You can get your STORAGE by Stampin’ Up in my online store – its ALWAYS open!

Share your craft room storage and organization tips in the comments below!  What kind of space inspires you?  Are you a messy crafter, or does everything have its place, and thats where it always is?  Is all your craft stash in one room, or scattered across your home?  I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Product List

Last-Chance Products!

Its that time of year again … time to say good-bye…  Our retiring item list is now available.  Get them quick before they are gone forever!

BUT, BEFORE YOU START SHOPPING, note that this year’s retiring list is quite different…

First of all,  Stampin’ Up is retiring our current Stampin’ Trimmer and the BIG SHOT!  There is no need to panic!  We will have replacements available at a later date, but they will not be available in the new 2019-2020 catalog.  But not to worry, they will continue to carry and over a vast selection of dies and embossing folders, and you can still order a Big Shot and a Trimmer while supplies last.  If you need help with alternatives, please contact me!

Also, Stampin’ Up is transitioning all of their Clear-mount stamps to CLING!  And after June 4th, they will no longer offer stamps in Wood-Mount (with the exception of Background stamps).  This transition will impact you only if you are ordering a stamp set that is carrying over, and IF you have a preference to receive it in Clear-mount or CLING-mount.  If you are interested in learning more about the differences in these two styles, come to one of my classes and play with these products or contact me with any questions!

From Stampin’ UP!

Effective immediately, stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first). If our inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog! All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is a list of stamp sets that are carrying over and that the Cling-mount transition applies to:

Accented Blooms
Animal Outing
Artisan Textures
Barn Door
Beautiful Day
Beautiful You
Bee Thankful
Birthday Backgrounds
Bokeh Dots
Botanical Bliss
Buffalo Check (will continue as wood mount as well)
Country Road
Crafting Forever
Dandelion Wishes
Dashing Deer
First Frost
Flourishing Phrases
Gallery Grunge
Handwritten
Healing Hugs
Heartland
Hold On To Hope
Itty Bitty Greetings
Kindness & Compassion
Label Me Pretty
Lilypad Lake
Little Elephant
Little Twinkle
Love you to Pieces
Magical Mermaid
Painted Glass
Peaceful Place
Perennial Birthday
Pop of Petals
Rooted in Nature
Sea of Textures
Sorry for Everything
Special Celebrations
Stitched All Around
This Little Piggy
Tropical Chic
Winter Woods

NOTE ABOUT BUNDLES: Don’t forget, that when the current catalog retires on June 3rd, items that are currently available in Bundles at a 10% discount will no longer be bundled, but will have to be purchased individually.  So, if you have had a bundle on that wish list, get it now while you can still save that 10%!

Happy Tails

NC Demos Blog Hop – Cute Critters

Today’s card is part of the NC Demo’s Blog Hop. This month’s theme is cute critters, and since I’m a dog-lover, I designed my card using the new Happy Tails Bundle!

Remember, today is the FINAL day of Sale-a-Bration so get those last-second orders in by midnight so you don’t miss out! Not sure what to order? Try this adorable bundle out!



In case you’re wondering who are the NC Demos… We are a self-managed group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators that live in North Carolina, USA. We have our own Facebook page where we set up events for fellow demonstrators to attend, we share project ideas and business tips as well.

Today’s card uses the Happy Tails bundle with some of our FREE Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper called Painted Seasons. You can earn this paper for FREE by placing a $50 order – but you better hurry, Sale-a-bration ends tonight (March 31st) and this paper will be GONE!

The Happy Tails bundle has a great punch that will cut your dog AND a cute little heart too! The stamp set has multiple pattern options for your dog so you can make most any breed / color you want… so many possibilities… I used a simple masking technique on the sentiment to cover up the word “Heart” because I wanted to use the little heart punch in its place… I think it gives it such a cute touch.

You can purchase all the items I used on this card from my Online Store by clicking the links below. My store is ALWAYS open!

Now, Hop on over to the next blog to see what other cute critters some of my fellow NC Demos created!
