New Stamp Pads, New Organization & a Sale

I’m a HUGE fan of Stamp-n-Storage! Their products made my dream craft room come true.

I just reorganized my crafting area with a few new Stamp-n-Storage units, and I’m excited to share now that they are painted and displaying some of the new Stampin’ Up! products from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog!

I reorganized my crafting space with a few new Stamp-n-Storage units so I could fit the new Stampin’ Up! ink pads. And yay! If you’re also reorganizing your space, you are doing it at the right time… Stamp-n-Storage is having a fabulous Spring 2018 sale through June 18th! Click here to shop! http://www.stampnstorage.com/#a_aid=stampyourartout …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

When I found out about the new ink pad design at OnStage this past April and then found out that Brett at Stamp-n-Storage was already working on a few new storage unit solutions to accommodate the new pads, I made a plan that this was the ideal time to change several of my units out that I’d been wanting to update for awhile now.

I definitely wanted to change out/update the units for my markers, reinkers and pads. I realize I could’ve just added spacers in my combo unit, but I absolutely fell in love with the Stampin’ Ink Pad Holder for Color Families. (I hope it sticks around longer. Right now it’s a “limited edition.”) When it’s paired with the Side-by-Side Marker Holder, it’s just gorgeous showing off the 10 upright reinkers for each color family above each column. And it aligns so nicely with the corresponding markers adjacent to each row! I love this look so much!! I think it’s a cleaner and more colorful look.

I reorganized my crafting space with a few new Stamp-n-Storage units so I could fit the new Stampin’ Up! ink pads. And yay! If you’re also reorganizing your space, you are doing it at the right time… Stamp-n-Storage is having a fabulous Spring 2018 sale through June 18th!

I also had a new Stampin’ Blends Marker holder to work into my reorganization. My first punch holder was too big (I don’t hang onto retired punches), so I went down to the standard size. And I needed a slightly larger place for my odd size ink pads (Memento, StazOn, VersaMark) and some of my older style ink pads with the updated firm foam pad for classes and events where I might need two of the same ink pad color. I changed out my Standard 36 to the one that holds 48. These are the units I now have:

And I’m so happy with my organized space!

I’ve had them for a little over a week and LOVE them! I still need some practice, but here is a comparison of two pumpkin images. The left one is colored in with Stampin’ Write water-based markers. You can see lines & streaks. The right one is colored in with the new Blends and produce a much softer, smooth look.

Stamp-n-Storage 4th of July Sale

If you are new to my blog, then you may not know about my crafting space. It took a LOT of planning and work (and some money, too – lol) to get my dream room. But it was so worth it! Whenever I am in it, I am happy. And that good feeling allows me to feel the MOST creative.

Think about it…if you hate your space (or even dislike it), you go into it with a less than positive attitude. And when you have any negativity, it takes effort to block that when creating. Blah! That's how I used to feel. I'd even pull out my supplies and create in my kitchen just to avoid the aura of my yucky room. My crafting space was never used. Things piled up because I didn't even want to be in it.

I'm not saying you have to totally revamp everything to have a happy space. But sometimes a little organization is all you need.

For example: have a place for your ink pads so they aren't closed away in a plastic tote that you have to keep pulling out and weeding through to find that ONE color. In this photo below, you can see my ink pad, marker and ink refill organizer on the shelf behind my cards.

I love my Stamp-n-Storage organizers! … #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It's from a company that I adore…Stamp-n-Storage! And starting today they are having a sale on their ink pad storage systems. There are many to choose from. I love that when I need a color, all I have to do is look up and grab it. Storing my ink pads this way keeps my room attractive even though my inks are right out in the open.

Stars, Stripes, and a Stamp-n-Storage Sale!...Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Purchase any Ink Pad Storage system now through July 5th and get 15% off! Click here to view the choices.
Discounts will be applied automatically during the checkout process. 

 

In case you are curious, these are the Stamp-n-Storage products I own…

I love my new Stamp-n-Storage organizers! …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And just recently I acquired these two paper crates with a rolling base (so I can wheel these stackable crates around in my room)! I store mine under my taller table.

Stamp-n-Storage Paper Crates and Rolling Base allow me to stack and store my 12x12 papers AND move them around in my room if I wish.…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I recorded a video where I give a tour of my new crafting space. If you are looking for inspiration or ideas, CLICK HERE to view it.

Thanks for checking out what I had to share today. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my monthly Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop. Yippee!! I can't wait to show you what I've created with my June kit! Never tried Paper Pumpkin kits? Then you’ll want to visit tomorrow to get the details on Paper Pumpkin’s surprise deal for new subscribers. This offer will come and go in a flash, so don’t miss it!
