The Heartfelt Bundle is part of this suite and includes the Heartfelt Stamp Set and Heart Punch Pack. One punch is scalloped and layers perfectly with the other. You can also punch the hearts from the Designer Series Paper. How cool is that?!!

The stamp set has some great sentiments! Check out this video to see the different products in the suite along with some project ideas.

The From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper has playful patterns with foil accents on some designs. This 30 second video flips through each of the designs in this paper pack.

I used the DSP, ribbon, and heart doilies from the suite to create this fun fold valentine.

The heart doilies come in Real Red and Flirty Flamingo or you can flip them over if you prefer white. I love how they are sized to fit the Heart Foil Tins or card fronts.  I’m planning to make homemade fudge for Valentine’s Day to give to family and friends.  The heart foil tins are food safe and perfect to pour the fudge in and let it mold in to shape! Talk about easy! There’s so much you can do with this suite for year round cards and gifts!

Craft Room Organization & Tips

January has been a busy month! Getting the product shares ordered, cut, packaged, and shipped was my first order of business! After that I had a bunch of thank you cards and gifts to make and send as well as my calendar card kits and monthly tutorials. Then I decided it was time to tackle my New Year’s resolution to clean up and reorganize my craft room. It’s still a work in progress but, I am happy with the results so far and can’t wait to create more projects! (It is so nice when I can find what I need!) I thought I would share a few pictures of my room as well as some storage ideas and tips in case organization is on your “To Do List” this year.

I have a hodgepodge of furniture, baskets, etc. to keep me organized. I keep my die cutting machine out because I use it all the time.  My embossing folders and dies are stored beside it for easy access. I put a little green sticker on current products then, when it retires, I simply remove the sticker and decide if it is something I will keep or get rid of. (I purchase what I love so as you can see I keep a lot!)

Current stamp sets are stored alphabetically above my work area. They are stored in photo boxes to keep them from falling over. My retired (but loved) stamp sets are organized by themes (baby, birthday, holidays, seasonal, sentiments, thank you, wedding, etc.). An old bookcase/desk that belonged to my grandmother works great for my theme organization. I also found this DVD storage rack at our school’s rummage sale and love that it holds a lot of stamp sets!

The hanging basket storage works great for storing my DSP swatch books, adhesives, and embellishments right at my fingertips beside my desk.

I found this mail sorter at a second hand shop and love it for storing my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. It’s organization and decor all in one!

My 12 x 12 cardstock and DSP is stored in plastic magazine files I purchased online from Amazon.

I am in the process of trying to use up my stash of DSP.  (I have to stop hoarding it when it goes on clearance.)  I try to remember my mom’s advice, “A sale is not a sale if you don’t need it!” I find it’s always a fine line between want and need.  LOL (*I’ve been working on a project that uses 12 x 12 DSP which I’ll share later this week.)

I also have (and love) many products from Stamp N Storage.  They are high quality and designed especially for Stampin’ Up products! They offer so many storage options for ink pads, blends, punches, dies, ribbons, and more!  Here’s some of my favorite Stamp ‘N Storage products…

The Stamp-N-Storage link is always on the right hand side on my blog.) *Note: I receive a small affiliate fee when you use my Stamp-n-Storage shopping links. However, I can’t say enough about how these quality products help me stay organized and highly recommend them.

Organization is personal. What works for someone else may not work for you.  Understand how you craft and what works best for you. Here’s 5 organization tips from Mary at Stamp ‘N Storage:

 Craft Room Organization Tips

  1. Prioritize space for the things you use most. You want to have quick, easy access to these items.
  2. Let go of unnecessary things. If you haven’t touched it in ten, five, even two years it is taking up precious space for what you are currently working on. It is OK to get rid of things.
  3. Do a little every day. It helps a huge task seem more manageable and helps you stay organized once you get there.
  4. Put things away where they belong or find a place for it. Resist the urge to just shove stuff somewhere to deal with “later”. When later comes you will be overwhelmed and it will take a lot longer to deal with.
  5. Put things away after you use them.

I have the hardest time with #5! I’m working on #2. What about you? I’d love to hear from you! Leave me a comment with something you found useful from today or share an organization tip you use.  I’ll pick a random winner to receive some retired goodies (tip #2 above).

Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold and Exclusive Tutorials FREE with Purchase!

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! It’s December! And that means crunch time when it comes to preparing for the holidays! This month I am featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch. Believe me, when it comes to last minute projects, a punch gets it done (quick & easy)! This is one of my favorite bundles!

I have three different versions of a super quick fun fold Christmas card idea I made using this bundle.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fun fold cards and this “Impossible Fun Fold” is actually very easy to do and uses minimal supplies. (Great for when you need to make multiples!)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

For the first card I stamped 2 of the tree stamps directly on the Whisper White cardstock piece using Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the third tree on Shaded Spruce cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I punched it out with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  You can add a sentiment and sign the card on the back.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

For my second card I used the same tree stamp for all three trees.  I stamped two and then heat embossed the one in the middle again. I punched out all three and added a few rhinestone embellishments to the trees on the side. I love the heat embossed sentiment as well as the ribbon and bell on this one!Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this fun fold and because I like to send photo cards to my family every year I wanted to see how it looks with a wallet size photo.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

*This is not my family photo (It’s actually one of my sisters with her family). I need to get our family photo printed so I can make these cards! I love how it turned out! I make a lot of cards every year and I will be able to make multiples of these fast! You can make 4 of these card bases from 1 sheet of cardstock! I can also decorate 2 cards from each 6 x 6 piece of DSP.  With 48 sheets in the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper I’ll have plenty for all my Christmas cards!
