How to Use the New Stampin' Up! Gift Box Punch Board

Deals-26-1


My Make-Shift Crafting Area

We've been on the road all day and I just finished "somewhat" organizing my make-shift crafting area at our cabin in the Ozarks.  Since my permanent space is still in the planning stage for now, I have to occupy the laundry room with the front load washer and dryer and use every nook and cranny for storage.  Now, mind you, it's not very tidy but it works.  Pics follow--- so brace yourself!

Stampin-up-big-shot-station
Small space between washer and dryer.

This is my Big Shot station that's a little cramped but serves the purpose.  When we're in Texas, this little gem is stored in a drawer.

Stampin-up-mailing-supplies
Top Drawer of Big Shot Station


 This is the drawer just beneath the Big Shot.  It's pretty shallow but just right for envelopes, note cards, and mailing supplies.

Stampin-up-stamps
Stamp Drawer

The middle drawer is just the right size to hold all the stamps that I bring with me.  Trying to keep them in alphabetical order!

Stampin-up-framelits
Framelits, etc.

The bottom drawer holds framelits, some retired stamps, and some rags for messes. ;)

Stampin-up-ribbon-embellishments
Just below the Dryer!

This is the pedestal drawer below the dryer.  Holds ribbon and embellishments.  A bit messy but I know where everything is...you know what I mean.

Stampin-up-big-shot-dies
Big Shot Dies

Yep, you guessed it.  Here's the pedestal drawer below the washer.  Big Shot dies on the right; finished projects to photograph or give away on the left.

 Maybe one day soon, I'll get pics of the rest of it...maybe.  Do you have a special area place to craft? Tell us about it in the comment section below.

Thank you for taking the time to peek into my make-shift crafting area!


Three Handmade Stampin' Up! Card Ideas

Here are three handmade Stampin' Up! card ideas that came off the craft table last night.  Combining past, present, and future Stampin' Up products, these were created to fill an order for a stack of handmade cards.  Let me share...

Kinda-eclectic-under-the-tree-card
Kinda Eclectic Meets Under the Tree

Once again showing off one of my faves, Kinda Eclectic, and combining it with Under the Tree Specialty Designer Paper.  This paper stack ROCKS!  You are going to love it...so versatile!  Great for the Holidays or any day!  It's thick and sturdy...perfect for those boxes you are going to create with the new Gift Box Punch Board or for any of your paper crafting projects as seen on this card here.  One side of each sheet is a kraft and off-white combo that will go with ANYTHING!  Seriously...you need to put this on your wish list!

Lovely-as-a-tree-under-the-tree-card
An Oldie But Goodie- Lovely As A Tree

Ok...if you're one of the few who do not own this set, I beg you to do yourself a HUGE favor and take the plunge.  Lovely As A Tree is SUper popular and I believe I'm correct in saying the longest running stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  It's a winner for any season and any type of card and perfect for masculine cards. You NEED this set!

Chalk-talk-under-the-tree-card
Chalk Talk Backed by Under The Tree

Doesn't that simple Cherry Cobbler Print "pop" behind this Chalk Talk tag?
The flip side of one pattern of that Under the Tree Specialty Paper is just right here. 

Thanks for visiting today!  Let me know if you'd like item numbers and Stampin' Up! ordering information and I hope you enjoyed these three handmade Stampin' Up! card ideas!
