Stamp n Storage units 1
 I am asked all the time about organizing the supplies I use for stamping clubs and classes (there is LOTS to organize and I don't always do a good job that's for sure!!). For the last several years I have used the storage units above from a company in Minnesota ~ 'stamp n storage'.  I have storage units for my stamp pads & markers, my punches, my dies and my ribbon.   Stamp n storage is a wonderful company started by a husband responding to his wife's 'honey do list'. We can identify with that, right?  (I believe they are in the middle of a sale so now would be a great time to order!)

You can find them at




Thank You

Would you like to have a quick and easy way to show how pretty some new Stampin' Up! colors are?  This may be the answer!  This card is created with the 'Thank You' stamp from the set Abstract Impressions on page 129 in the new catalog.  And, the colors (from the top) are Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Gray Granite.  You can download the Project Sheet and enjoy!

You Can Make It

New Catalog Tour ~ I am sure that you have noticed on a number of pages a special section titled YOU CAN MAKE IT.  Stampin' Up! has made it easy for all of us to order certain stamp sets and supplies to create the projects in this special section.  They have even provided a DEDICATED CODE to make ordering all these supplies easy (it isn't necessary to order each item separately)!  The example below is on page 149 in the new catalog.  Look for other YOU CAN MAKE IT projects on page 33, 75, 123, 194 and 205!

Make a Sandwich header

Having trouble remembering how to make that BIG SHOT SANDWICH?  Have you asked yourself which platform to use, the Magnetic or the original Big Shot Platform?  And, as if Standard Dies and Detailed Dies weren't enough now Stampin' Up! has included Embossing Dies in the new catalog!   (You can see an example of an embossing die on page 143 included in the Nature's Roots Framelits Dies.)  Stampin' Up! has a quick and easy flyer for all of us to love.  Print it out and keep it handy.  Let me know if you have questions.

Designer Series Paper Video

In every new catalog comes the beautiful new Designer Series Papers.  This year is no except to the amazing designs.  There are so many to choose from.

Stampin' Up! put together a video to present all the new Designer Series Paper.  Take a look at some of the fresh new styles.  


And, I don't think it is a secret but Stampin' Up! has let their demonstrators know that there will be a special sale on DSP beginning July 1!  Can't wait to make my list!  You can also see all the papers in my online store.   Happy Saturday, Susan Elise


Nature's Poem Suite

I have received so many positive comments about this bundle on page 142-143 in our new catalog that I know you are going to love this video.  The projects presented are fabulous and make me want to ignore everything else on my list and create cards using these ideas!  Let me know what you think!
