I’ve moved from my Craft Corner to a Craft Wall. I’ve started to call the room my Multi-Purpose Room. I love that the room can convert to a guest room by pulling down the Murphy Bed, comfortable for adults and my older grandkids. With my craft supplies safely locked up and the pack and store open, it converts to a baby room or my younger grandkids. But most of the time I’m in there with my computer and crafts.

My craft supplies are all along one wall, so I call it my Craft Wall. The counter is only 18″ deep to allow for the Murphy bed in this tiny room. But I have quite a bit more counter space than I had in my Craft Corner. My stamps are easier to find on my media shelf, my file drawers open all the way, and I have a better view. But I still make every effort to use ever nook and cranny.

Here are the links to the resources I mentioned:

Our grandson is celebrating the end of his elementary school years. I love the sparkle and monochrome look with Blueberry Bushel, one of the new In Colors. I thought the greeting from Another Wonderful Year worked well too.

I just love this card. I love the color combination. I love the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The clean and simple card on the left is very pretty. It does not require a Big Shot and is really pretty simple. You could step up the card by cutting out the stamped images. I guess you could do a simplified version with Paper Snips, but don’t they look beautiful with the detailed die cuts? And then cutting the Flirty Flamingo layer with the Window Box die and adding the detailed cross really makes a huge difference.

I designed, wrote the instructions, and demonstrated this card before the new catalog went live. You can still make this card with current products. The printable directions call for the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, but the Flirty Flamingo marker is now part of the Brights Collections. And the ribbon I used has been discontinued, but I listed two others you could use instead.

What will you fill your jar with? I filled it with a little bouquet of yellow and coral flowers. This card stands up on its own, a fancy fold with just one extra crease. So easy! The Stamparatus saves a lot of card stock and time. I show you how in the video.
