Video: How to Create a Flying Home Note Card

Hello!
This morning, I went "Live" on my Stampin' In The Sand Facebook Page and we created this super cute note card.  

I paired the little birdies from the new Flying Home stamp set with the banner image from the (also new) In the Trees stamp set. 
I think the two were just meant to play together!

Craft Room Organization: Stamps


Hello!

Yesterday, I introduced you to my new Craft Room (here).
Today, I am going to show you how I am storing some of my retired stamp sets.



My room is a wide-open space.  4 walls, one of windows.  I have 2 solid pocket doors I can close off if I need to.  Mostly, I leave the doors "tucked in".  From my room, I look out into the hall at iron railing and the foyer light :)  Luckily, there is also a small window over the foyer so I can see the tops of the trees :)  I guess it's better than looking at a wall :)

On either side of the door opening, I have placed these old pine bookcases.  They came from the Massachusetts house.  My husband had them in his prior home.  One was in my old craft room and the other was in our family room.  They have been reunited in my new craft room :)


The one on the right (looking from inside the room) has doors at the top and the other is open shelves.  I like to keep the doors open so I can see my display projects and my stamps :)  

These are my old-style Wood Mount Stampin' Up! stamps.  The ones in the old "clam shell" cases.  From back when you had to cut out your rubber stamps from the sheet before mounting them on your blocks - remember those days?  Oh the hand cramps I used to get!!!  


In the open space below, I have my stamp binders (more on that later), old Stampin' Up! catalogs, and copies of our demonstrator news magazine "Stampin' Success".  I like to use all of these as references.  There's a lot of great ideas in those!   Below that is more storage with doors.  I have a bunch of old Creative Memories albums and (empty) pages in there.   I hope to get back to scrapbooking someday...


The open-shelves bookcase holds my retired "new style" Stampin' Up! stamp sets and some of my Paper Pumpkin stamp sets.  

These stamps are in alphabetical order and I have my clear mount separated from my wood mount.  Don't ask me why... I don't have an answer, LOL.  The cabinet below is home to boxes of old photographs, that never made it into scrapbooks, and old scrapbook embellishments.


I hope you've enjoyed this brief glance into my room.  
I'm off to organize another section!
I'm literally working in one little area at a time.  I got way too overwhelmed by trying to unpack a box at a time... I'm finding it easier to work on one organizational piece at a time instead!

Hope you are having a creative day,
 Mary

Welcome to my Craft Room

Hello, Happy Sunday!

We are still frozen here in the South!  I can't believe how cold it has been, and for how long!  Everything is iced over!
Well, at least I can spend a little time working on setting up my new craft room!


Back in October we bought a house.

We are in the process of moving out of the old house and preparing to put it on the market.
We've had a lot of changes in our lives since last June... but that's a story for another day :-)


I have been slowly setting up my new craft space and it suddenly occurred to me to share it.  I have been scouring Pinterest and Blogs looking for organization ideas for my new room.  Why not share my own journey?  Perhaps someone will get some ideas from me and I can pay it forward!


So, Welcome to my Craft Room!

It will be a "work in progress" for some time but, they say that's half the fun... time will tell ;)



Currently, the room is a combination of furniture from my old craft rooms and our old house in Massachusetts (which we sold back in August).  Very eclectic mix I've got going in here!


It's also a Mess!

The one thing this room does not have, that is causing me some issues, is a closet.  For now, I'm utilizing a hall linen closet and a guest room closet. 



As my room progresses, I'll be back with additional photos and some organization tips/tricks.  I'll most likely be asking for some suggestions as well ;)  I am trying to utilize what I have but I see a road-trip to Ikea in my future.  Atlanta, GA or Orlando, FL.... decisions, decisions.



Well, I'm headed back to my room... some days, I just move boxes around without unpacking a single thing.  Hopefully today will see some empty boxes head down to the garage!  You just never know!

Hope you have a creative day!

Free Party Pandas Gift Card Holder


Have you seen the Sale-A-Bration Exclusive stamp set Party Pandas?  Are they not the Cutest?!

I had made these Gift Card Holders around Christmas time.  I need the Birthday card for an upcoming Birthday but it's so cute that I leave it out to look at :) 



As I was staying warm in my craft room today, I decided to start on some more cards to send out with my Thank You gifts from today's Launch Promotion!  I thought it would be a fun bonus to send along with the exclusive Party Pandas Cards Tutorials my customers are receiving as well.  

What do you think?  Is this Birthday Panda adorable or what?

I'll be sending out a similar version of this card to everyone who shops with me today and selects the Party Pandas stamp set as a Sale-A-Bration reward!  I'm having so much fun creating these cards!  I would love to send you one!  You can find all of the details on my promotion here.

I'm going back to stamping Pandas ;)

Have a great evening!
