Punch Storage

By | Organization | 21 Comments

One of the things I get asked about most is punch storage. Punches are a great addition to your card making supplies but they can be bulky and hard to store. My philosophy is if I can’t see them I won’t use them. So I have most of my punches hanging on my wall like this… My husband built this handy punch holder using 3 towel bars from IKEA and a scrap piece of white board he had lying around. The towel bars are flat, not round so the punches fit over them better. You wouldn’t absolutely need the white…

Tips for Pinning on Pinterest

By | Organization | 8 Comments

Pinterest is a great place to find ideas for cards, scrapbook pages and every other craft project you could EVER think of! Instead of trying to find that card or recipe again, Pinterest acts as a virtual bulletin board for you to bring all of the ideas you see all over the internet into one place. Once you start using Pinterest you’ll find that there is nothing more frustrating than clicking on a pin and being taken to… nothing that resembles the pinned picture. No recipe for that delicious looking muffin, no instructions for that WOW stamping technique. Let me help…

Why can’t I send Birthday Cards on time?

By | Birthday Cards, Organization | 7 Comments

Seriously, why can’t I get birthday cards in the mail on time? I know the birthdays are coming (most of the time). I’m reminded by my Birthday Calendar and Facebook reminders. So why can’t I get birthday cards in the mail? So many different reasons can be the culprit.  Not having birthday cards on hand is usually one issue.  That means I’d have to find the time to make them.  Not easy during the summer with vacations and kids home. Other reasons are no postage stamps on hand or not being able to find an address. These just aren’t good…

Get Organized for Summer Fun

By | Organization | One Comment

Summer Vacation can be loads of fun or loads of headaches.  After a rigid school schedule, the lazy days of summer can turn into boredom and whining.  No one wants that!  To get ourselves ready for summer fun we created this Summer Fun Binder.  It includes lots of ideas, coupons, brochures and more to keep us organized and ready for fun.  I chose a white binder with a clear pocket on the front and decorated it by sliding a piece of Designer Series Paper in.  Easy and more fun to look at! On the inside of the binder, I created…
