Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card

This Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card was super Quick & Easy!  I send a ton of thank you cards every month and quick, easy, looks pretty fits my needs perfectly…lol…  I love the crafting forever stamp set for it’s versatility and it’s obvious crafty appeal.

To make this card simply start with an A2 card base in Night of Navy.  Cut landscape style, 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold the card in half at 5.5″.  Layer a Very Vanilla card stock cut at 5.25″ x 4″ stamped with the pens in Night of Navy ink.  Remember!  Stamp the Very Vanilla envelope with the pens too!  The Thank You sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set.  Finish off the card with the Night of Navy crinkled seam binding ribbon wrapped around the front and finished off with a bow!

Here’s the sneak peek!

This years theme was Love it.  Live it.  Share it.  Perfect!

 

 

 

 

I so love going to the live events with our group, this is a pic of a few of us!  Can you believe three ladies were first timers!  I remember being being so amazed at the energy when I first started going!   It was so much fun!!  Can you say “Prize Patrol!”  Love being able to see all the new catalog items in action created live on stage!

A huge crowd waits for the doors to open!

It is so amazing to see all the ladies gathering, talking, swapping cards and catching up!  My friend actually brought 250 swaps and managed to swap them all!!  I only bring 100 and that’s alot of work!

 

Woohoo!  I got to walk the stage for earning the 2018 Alaska cruise thanks to all of you!!   Thanks for all the support and encouragement!

My Craft Room Organization Pt 3: Ink pads & Punches

 

My Craft Room Organization Pt 3: Ink pads & Punches shows how I store my ink pads, reinkers, markers, and punches.  I love the company who creates these storage solutions!

I absolutely love the ability to have my ink pads, reinkers, and coordinating markers all in one spot.  And divided by color family no less!  Also, I have room for both sets of the in colors!  Of course I also need everything visible so both storage solutions are perfect!

The punch storage has various widths and allows for storage of the different types of punches, Yay!  I keep some of my favorite stamp sets and punches that are discontinued.  To make it easy to see at a glance I use a small colored dot to easily identify the ones that are not current.

My Craft Room Organization Pt 2: Cardstock & paper bits

Here is My Craft Room Organization Pt 2: Cardstock & paper bits. I wanted to share a series of short videos on a few simple things I have learned to do that work for me in keeping my craft supplies organized. 

Since I published the video I had some questions come in through YouTube and email.  Here are more deets.  Since I am an active Stampin’Up! demonstrator I don’t keep my retired cardstock.  I will pack up the color with the inkpad, reinker, and any matching ribbon I have and sell it at my customer appreciation event at the end of every catalog year.

I used to keep my “bits” with my hanging cardstock folders, but that got too bulky. Keeping them in the clear sheet protectors works so much better for me!  And I have discovered that keeping a baggie of smaller bits inside the plastic sheet protectors works great to keep it even further organized.

I know part of this is because I teach so many classes and I am always in search of a specific size “bit”.  I am thrifty too, and I know I will always use it in the future 🙂
