ON ANOTHER NOTE!
I am getting more use out of the
Home To Roost Stamp Set that I earned
from the now, expired Sale-A-Bration offering!
This Sale-A-Bration happens every year from January-March!
For every $50 you spend, you can earn a stamp set, exclusive, in the
I have many Masculine Cards to make up…also some Feminine!
Come to think of it…I have all to make again!
I had a clean out of cards for the ‘Community Parking Lot Sale’ we had last Saturday!
I was very busy getting ready for that sale! I cleared out a lot of items that retired.
Some I keep, like this Home to Roost stamp set! Many punches, Stamp Sets, Dies, DSP,
Ink Pads…etc.,. I bought a new Storage system for the NEW stamp pads, pens, and
Stampin’Up! alcohol markers, ink refills, and cubbies for misc.. items I use at hand.
The storage only subtracts 5″ from my work space.
Previous storage solutions took away 18″-24″ of work space. It is great that
Stampin’Up! came out with this! Each item is a 5″ cube shape! They can stack
as high as 10 cubes, but, I won’t do that! No need for me. Mine are 2 high, and I
will be adding another level soon. I had calculated too little for the Stampin’ Blends
Alcohol Markers…I have to go one level higher for them, so I went ahead and ordered
the open Cubes for the even layer look!
Here is a straight on shot!
I gained so much more space! The Stampin’ Blends are on the left…that is the
level I will be increasing. The 2 cubes on the end…I will be getting 3 more
I will stack them across the top, beside the level up, Stampin’ Blends,
then the ink refills on top of them!
The mug on the left is from my Grand Lesley! It holds my Aqua Painters
The mug on the right is from my sister Mary! It hold all the tools I grab for
immediate use…pens, scribe, bone folder, kraft knife, ruler, scissors…
Here is another shot from an angle!
I am so happy they came out with this! Makes my life easier!
The reason I am getting more storage for the Stampin’ Blends
is because, not all are there (no room), and if they come out
with more colors, I want the room to grow!
That’s all for now…Until next Post…Blessings to you ALL!
