I love this Framelit set! I made a Christmas card similar to this. I just love having the views looking in and out!

Today is the last day to buy from the 15-16 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog and Happy Home is retiring. It’s also the last day to get 15% off the bundles in this catalog.

If you have purchased from me in the last year and you would like a 2016-2017 annual catalog, just let me know and I’ll get one to you.


Here are the things that will keep your supplies organized in your crafting space.

Catalog Tabs 16-17 Catalog Tabs The tabs are color coded to match the table of contents on page 1. Laminate with packing tape, then cut out with your paper trimmer or punch out with the Decorative Label punch.

Autocorrect and RGB Chart16-17 Colors Chart with RGB Hex and AutoCorrect You’ve got to set up the Stampin’ Up! colors and frequently used products with AutoCorrect! It will save you tons of time! And you can use your computer and coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! colors with the RGB codes! Color match depends on your printer. Here’s how to set it up on Office Products.

Supply Labels (1)16-17 Supply Labels (Avery 5167) These labels go on most of my Stampin’ Up! products. I can’t tell you how many times I can’t find an item in the catalog or perhaps I can’t remember the name of an embossing folder or whatever. It’s all there on the sticker!

20150522_07400616-17 Stamp Case Slips How do you like to organize your stamp sets? I arrange the alphabetically, but a lot of people organize them by theme. Print these pages on plain copy paper, cut them up into strips on the lines, and slip them into the stamp set cases. The color coding matches the colors in the catalog and the catalog tab. The slips also give you the item number for wood-mount, clear-mount, or photopolymer versions (English). On the back the stamp sets you’ll see the recommended blocks and coordinating products.

Large Labels16-17 Large Labels These are the labels I use on 12″ x 12″ pockets. I used to print them on labels, but I’ve found the labels didn’t want to go through my printer. I just print them on plain copy paper and adhere them to with Fast Fuse. That works great!

16-17 DSP Labels Someone asked me to create these labels with just the names and colors, so I continue to update them with the new Designer Series Papers.

DSP Sampler16-17 DSP Sampler Yep. The displayed image is from several years ago, but the download is for this year’s DSP. These pages can be printed on Whisper White card stock and put on a ring or chain. Add 2″ x 3″ samples of the Designer Series Papers. I keep mine hanging near my crafting desk.

Paper Sampler 16-17 Clear Labels for card stock and ink refills
Use any punch or die to cut out the card stock to make your own paper sampler.
Clear Case Ink Refill openRefill boxUse the refill labels to make these boxes and store them in wood-mount cases.

Color Chart16-17 Color Chart with all Core and In Colors Add a 1/2″ punch of card stock, stamp with a small solid image, then color and write with the Stampin’ Write Markers. The chart will compare the colors and show the ones you own.

Color Families with all coordinating products This color chart has one page for each color family. It lists all the products that come in the complete family and then each color lists the papers, inks, and embellishments that include the color.

Inserts to go into Clear Cases

Some people like to keep all the Thinlits, Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, and thin embellishments in Standard Stamp Cases. (I haven’t checked that all these Framelits will fit in the case.)  Links in green are for wide (wood-mount) case inserts.

0510161906a_resized It’s pretty easy to go beyond your punches. Watch the video to see how it’s done. I love the Traveler stamp set with the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I will sorely miss that folder, Lost Lagoon ink and card stock, the 2 1/2″ Circle punch, and Candy Dots that are retiring! Perhaps they’re still available if you act fast!


0510161906b_resizedThe second photo shows the same card with all the same materials but without the use of a Big Shot and the easier version of the punched ship.

0516161549a_resizedThis is a very quick “guy” card made with Flowering Flourishes. I love the bandana look!

This stamp set, the burlap ribbon, and the Real Red 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon are all on the Retired List, so grab them up now!

The0511161319_resized Gift Bag Punch Board directions included in the box were confusing to me. I did what I do. I figured it out and made it simple.

Gift Bag Punch Board Cheat Sheet

A small bag starts with paper 10″ wide and the finished bag will be about 2 1/4″ wide.

A medium bag starts with paper 11″ wide and will be about 3″ wide.

A large bag starts with paper 12″ wide and will be about 3 5/8″ wide.

All the bags will be about 2″ front to back.

You can make the height anywhere from 2 3/4″ (starting with 4″) to 10 3/4″ (starting with 12″).

For example, the smallest bag will start with 10″ x 4″ paper and the bag will be 2 1/4″ by 2″ and 2 3/4″ tall.

The largest bag will start with 12″ x 12″ paper with a finished size 3 5/8″ by 2″ and 10 3/4″ tall.

Bear Hugs 5-5-16A whole family of bears to say I love you, happy Mother’s Day, congratulations on a new baby, or just wishing you a day full of sunshine and a lake full of fish. I stamped extra bears with accessories so now I can just play paper dolls… er, bears. This is an easel card, so it will stand up on a shelf or on a desk. Sound’s complicated? No way! Just one extra fold.
