I’m hoping that we can spend some time stamping today and I will share pictures tomorrow but TODAY I want to answer some of your questions.
Jody asked, “Where can I find your paper cutting guides? I’ve spent 2 hours trying to find that cutting guide!”
I’m so sorry you spent so long looking for it but I hope you found more inspiration while you were searching.
If you’re ever looking for a particular project on my blog, just go to the left hand side bar. There is a picture of a woman thinking (the same picture above actually) and it says, “Hmm…where can I find that project? Search for it here”. There is a search box. Just type in the name of the project you’re looking for and click enter/return. Boom! Project found!
Since you mentioned the Ultimate Paper Cutting Guide, I thought I would post the info about it again. It was a VERY popular post. The Paper Cutting Guide is really helpful tool that shows you how to get the most out of a piece of cardstock. Just click the file below and print out the version you need! They all look identical so look for the paper size in the upper left corner.

And here is a video for you, in case you missed it. It will explain how to use the guide.
Cyndy emailed me and asked, “What are some of your best organization tips for Stampin’ Up supplies (tools, dies, stamps, ink, paper, etc).”
Organization is a struggle for every crafter…. including me. Everyone has their own way of doing things and I thought I would share pictures. It’s much easier to show you than try to put into words what I do.
My punch storage is one of my favorites. I love having my punches mounted on the wall so I can see everything. It helps remind me of punches I haven’t used in a while too. The bars are from Ikea. Bygel Bars and they are only $2.99 each so this solution didn’t cost a fortune to do.
My stamp storage is a wall unit that also came from Ikea but basically it’s just a DVD storage cabinet that can sit on the floor or mount to the wall. Mine is the Besta storage. It’s actually 2 of them and they are only $50 each. One would have been enough but I didn’t want it to look too crowded so I bought 2 of them.
Paper storage is always a struggle but I found my favorite solution was hanging files and Ziplock bags. I keep my full packs of cardstock in the file folders and right in front is a Ziplock bag with the matching scraps. I go to my scrap bag before I cut into a new piece of cardstock. I do keep extra packages of cardstock on hand and although you might need this much, I do love the storage I have for it. Magazine holders are GREAT for storing cardstock! These magazine holders fit so neatly under my cabinet. Again, Ikea to the rescue. Kassett Magazine Files – 2 for $4.99! Great deal!
Well, I hope you guys found today’s info helpful! I’m off to have breakfast and MORE coffee with my friends. Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! See ya tomorrow!
