You're probably wondering, "Where's the card?" This week I haven't felt like crafting. Nope. Not a bit. You might think it's because I'm recuperating from last week's big Stampin' in the Mountains Spring Retreat. Or you could be thinking it's because I'm anxious about presenting at OnStage in two weeks. And that's not it at all. The main reason I haven't felt like crafting is because my craft room is a giant MESS!
That's right. There's STUFF EVERYWHERE! Now, I know it was a madhouse packing for retreat. And I know that I came back with less than half of the stuff I left with. But my goodness people! I just want to go all Marie Kondo on it because it's not bringing me joy right now!
Drastic, I know! So...imagine the happiness I felt clear down to my toes when I learned that Stampin' Up! is about to make our lives cleaner, brighter, and more organized. Allow me introduce you to Storage by Stampin' Up!, a modular storage system that lets you customize and organize your space your way.
Storage by Stampin’ Up! is designed to store and showcase your Stampin’ Pads, Stampin’ Ink Refills, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolor Pencils, and other accessories. Here are some other features and benefits of Storage by Stampin’ Up!:
No Guess Work Involved!
Stampin' Up! really did think of everything. Instead of guessing what kind or how many pieces you need, they gave us this handy dandy Configuration Chart to use. (Download it here).
Then, once you have your space configured, email me and I'll help you place your order. It's that simple. Oh...and did I tell you? Stampin' Up! demonstrators save 20-25% on all Storage by Stampin' Up!? That's just one more reason to join my Stamping Bee team before March 31. Get $175 in product now, and on April 1st, when Storage by Stampin' Up! is available, you'll receive an automatic 20% discount. How's that for smart shopping?
I'm going to spend some time this weekend with this Configuration sheet, so I can get my order placed first thing Monday morning. I can't wait to show you my new crafting space!
I promise to clean up my studio enough to craft with you tomorrow morning!

Wow Wednesdays usually showcase a fun or fancy card, a new technique, or fun new products. Today, I'm going to talk about organization. Specifically, this amazing Craft and Carry Tote bag.
As many of you know, my big Stampin' In the Mountains retreat was this past weekend. It was so cool to see a room full of these Craft and Carry Tote bags. Not only are they gorgeous - just look at that tag! - they hold more stuff than you can even imagine. Designed specifically for paper crafters, you can put your paper in and not worry about it getting wrinkled, crinkled or warped. Take a look at how much Sarah packed in her bag - and she still had room left over!
There are removable dividers to keep all your products neat. And when I take those out, would you believe I can even get my Big Shot and cutting plates and pads it? The straps are nice and secure and there's even a removable shoulder strap, giving you plenty of carrying options.
The Craft and Carry Tote bag is valued at $50, but is being offered for $30 during Sale-a-Bration when you purchase the starter kit. But you have to act fast. Sale-a-Bration ends March 31, and sadly, so does this amazing offer.
Top 10 Reasons to Get the Starter Kit during Sale-a-Bration
So what are you waiting for? Join now and SAVE big through the end of March.
Can you believe Another Sale-a-Bration has come…and is almost gone! Now is your last chance to stock up on those supplies that you need all year: Blends and Ink Pad collections!
Remember…Sale-a-Bration only comes once a year. Place your order by March 31 to take advantage of everything it has to offer.
These Sale-a-Bration Products are Still Available!

If I could sum up the Stamping an in the Mountains Spring 2019 Retreat in just one word, it would be WOW! Talk about amazing weekend, crafting, stamping, and laughing with friends. There was card making, scrap booking, Mother's Day basket making, coloring, and tons of prizes and surprises along the way. We went away happy, exhausted, and ready to do it all over again in September. But before we get ready for the next one, let's look at a few highlights from this past weekend.
I'll be back with more cards tomorrow...but first, I have to go unpack the car! See you tomorrow for CASE-ing Tuesday!
