I’ve been hanging onto the PDFs that Stampin’ Up! has been releasing on the demonstrator side of the website since they started sharing them with us in January 2015. And on February 2nd I uploaded them HERE for you to download. You don’t have to save the link, though. Just look for Stamp Set Case Inserts in my Paper Pumpkin drop down menu.
This is what they look like when they are printed, trimmed and slipped behind the plastic lining on the outside of a Clear Mount Case.

If you are in the market for great organizational units, their products are shipped sanded and ready to be used in their natural state. And they ARE quite beautiful in their natural state. Most leave them unpainted. But I painted all of mine to match the white in my room.
Painting them was super simple. But you must have a well-ventilated space and a good temperature for spray painting a primer coat. It’s imperative that you put down a primer coat of spray paint (non water-based paint). Once that protective coat is applied and dried, you can paint with a water-based paint that matches your room décor.
My water die collection has been growing, so this longer bin is perfect for the amount of framelits and thinlits I now own. (I have several more that didn’t make it in this photo. And now they all stand up much taller.)
I’m excited to share my friend Debra’s new set up! She was a Studio Showcase winner in September, and her room made their blog! Click here to see more and read about Debra’s room renovation. Isn’t it gorgeous?

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 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 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:
*The sale is for select categories only and excludes excludes Paper Holders and Crates, Drawer Cabinets, Combo Holders, Ink Pad & Refill Holders, and Ink Pad & Marker Holders. Please note…Shipping times during the sale may be extended 2-3 weeks.
I’m in Hartford, CT!…arrived yesterday afternoon with my friend, Mary. And we are super excited for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event that kicks off tonight for a few of us and carries on into tomorrow for everyone. Guess what!?!?! We get to see, touch and smell the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog!! (Can you tell I’m excited?)
Here is a photo of Mary and I yesterday evening in front of the Dunkin’ Donuts Park (a baseball stadium) before having a fabulous dinner at the Trumbull Kitchen.
The weather is brisk here just as it is back home in Minnesota, but I have Spring on my mind with all the new products we’ll get to see soon.
So today I am super happy to share how to make this super pretty dragonfly closure card using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, the Better Together Stamp Set, and the Petal Garden Designer Paper.
I wanted to share this card with my Facebook friends too, so I recorded this Facebook Live how-to video this past Wednesday and then uploaded it to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements below so that you can recreate this amazing card, and then let me know if you have any questions. If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live every Wednesday afternoon at 2 PM Central Time.
Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate this pretty card.
Whisper White Thick cardstock:
8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored and folded in half at 4-1/4”
Basic Black cardstock:
scrap for die-cutting dragonfly
scraps for die-cutting dragonfly & punching leaves
Petal Garden (or Whole Lot of Lovely) designer paper”
5-1/4” x 4”
2” x 4” or 2” x 4-1/4”
Products: See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Here are a few more close-up photos of all the card variations I shared in the video.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today. Thanks for stopping by! I’ll share more photos from OnStage soon. But the fun is about to begin, and I’ll be lucky if I get enough sleep. LOL

Stampin’ Up! is releasing a new line of alcohol-based markers!! I’m so super excited, so I pre-purchased ALL of them. hahaha! I couldn’t resist.
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.
I still need to paint it white so it blends in with all my other holders. But it fits perfectly in my craft room and coordinates so well with all of my other Stamp-n-Storage holders. I’m a happy gal!
Stampin’ Blends are available for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to pre-order now through October 15th. The release to everyone else will be in the near future (before 2017 ends), but the date hasn’t been determined yet. So if you want to get them now and you aren’t a demonstrator, there IS one other way. Order them by October 15th in a Starter Kit order!
