 Storage and Organization

I am a crafter, and I've been crafting for more than 30 years. You can imagine the amount of crafting supplies I have accumulated. I thought I was running out of space, but instead, I was disorganized. That is until I found Stamp-n-Storage.

My first purchase was the 12" x 12" paper holder with 12 slots. Most of my Designer Series Paper is 12" x 12", but I can also store 8 ½" x 11" cardstock in the same holders by using paper spacers. Now I have all of my paper in one place. It's organized, easy to access, and it inspires me to create.

I give Stamp-n-Storage paper holders five stars!!  You can enjoy paper holders to start your project organization too. I am a Stamp-n-Storage affiliate. I would be delighted if you used my link to make your next purchase.

 The final day of Center On-Stage

I'm sad to see this day come to an end.  My friend and fellow demonstrator, Carol Mulvain (who is also a member of my team, by the way), came to participate on the final day of the Celebration with me.  This day is always the most fun because we got to see Sara Douglas, Stampin' Up!® CEO, and Shelli Gardner Company Co-founder and Board Chair, put their talents to work.😊 
This is the day we also get to see the new January - June 2022 Mini Catalog and the January February 2022 Sale-a-bration brochure. I've already been through both multiple times, circling all the fun stuff I plan to put on my first order. I'm waiting until Tuesday to place my order because that's the first day of the Stampin' Up!® seasonal sale.  I'll share more about that on Mondy. 

Here are just a couple of photos from Sarah and Shelli's demonstrations.

Next November On-Stage will be held in person in Vienna Austria. I'm looking forward to the event already!

 The Second day of On Stage Celebration!

We're having a BLAST! Here are a few of the samples created today.

As you can see, each demonstrator created cards for the beginner, casual, and avid stamper. 

Let's give a shout-out to the creators.

December Paper Pumpkin Kit 

This month’s kit includes an all-occasion stamp set you can use to create all-occasion cards.
Not only is the stamp set very versatile, but it’s also a builder stamp set! This means the stamp set’s images can be mixed and matched to build various characters with different looks and features.
The kit’s playful patterns and delightful designs put an exciting spin on past Paper Pumpkin projects. Enjoy a fun ‘n’ fresh experience with this month’s kit!

As usual, this kit contains enough elements to create nine cards—3 each of 3 designs—and nine coordinating envelopes. This all-inclusive kit includes printed card bases, die-cut paper pieces, embellishments, adhesive, and more!

With so many coordinating colors (Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Poppy Parade), we can create many alternative cards.

It includes a Classic Stampin' Spot, and if you already have a subscription for Paper Pumpkin, you likely have most of the coordinating colors.

 Here is something you may not have known. There are two ways to subscribe. You can subscribe monthly and pay as you go, or you can sign up for three months, six months, or 12 months. You can pause or cancel anytime. Best of all, shipping is FREE!

On the third Monday of every month, I hold a free Craft & Hobbies Live.  I've been holding them on Facebook Messenger, but Monday, November 15, I will hold it on ZOOM. I want the opportunity to show you what I'm working on and with. Typically it's a previous Paper Pumpkin I haven't finished, but you can work on anything.  It's a fun time to get together, hang out, and work on whatever you want to accomplish. 

If you add yourself to my Crafts & Hobbies group pageI'll send you instructions for downloading ZOOM or an invite to the meeting if you already have ZOOM on your computer.  I look forward to seeing you!

  Stampin' Up!® OnStage Celebration!

Tonight kicked off the Stampin' Up!® On-Stage Celebration. So many high achievers!!!  WOW! I'm so thrilled for all of them! 
I was hoping you wouldn't laugh, but when I was watching the celebration online, I saw many young people. And being 63 this year, I started thinking I was too old, but nope, there are much older still demonstrating!  I love it. Who says we have to grow old and slow down?
Here's the swag box I received for the event. Everything from pencils. Paper, grid paper, some lovely pins to add to my lanyard, and demonstrator apron, and a burlap bag. It's the perfect size to carry my stamp sets. 

I earned my first team building and leadership promotion badges. I'm so excited!


I'm trying to grow, but it takes time. The best part is that I love it so much, and I want to share what I know so I can see you create too! That's what creating is all about. I have a ton of ideas but not enough time to create them. Oh, to be retired...

 Technique Thursday

Here's an example of how to use your Paper Pumpkin stamps and other elements to create cards you'll be proud to give. The supplies and instructions are below.
