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:

You can use my free downloadable catalog tabs to help you find just what you’re looking for in the new catalog. In the video, I share some of my favorite new features that will make paper crafting easier and some ideas to consider when making your shopping list.

Case Inserts

Case inserts for standard stamp cases are shown in blue, wide (wood-mount) cases are green and 6″ x 6″ are in red. You can order standard cases from Stampin’ Up! here, and the full size wide cases here. You can put the 6″ x 6″ inserts in my heavy duty recloseable bags or in boxes from ClearBags.

Color Resources




The Retiring list has been posted. Some items sell out very quickly. In fact, I should have posted this in the morning. Don’t delay!

Click here for the Occasions Catalog Retiring List.

Click here for the Annual Catalog Retiring List.

You will see lots of Bundles on the list. Bundle prices are no longer carried over to the next catalog, so don’t get fooled. Just because a bundle is listed, it does not mean the products are retiring.

You will also see a lot of card stock, stamp pads, and ink refills on the list. Stampin’ Up! needed to update the molds they use to make the stamp cases. It was also time for a color refresh. After careful consideration they decided to make all the changes at once rather than make changes this year and then make more changes next year. I’m so glad they did! So there are some of my favorite colors retiring and I am so sad to see them go. But there are lot of even better colors that will be introduced and even some favorites from previous years returning. Yay!

I loved the way Stampin’ Up! showed the array of colors in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog on page 183. They didn’t do that this year, but here’s my version of it with the new colors.

Click here do download the full-size chart.

Again, when you see collections on the list, it may mean that just a few products in the collection are retiring.

But some of my favorite products really are retiring.

Everyone who has ordered from me in the past year will get the new 2018-2019 catalog, so now is a great time to order from me!

The new Occasions 2018 and Sale-a-Bration catalogs are now live!!! Yippee! I have posted the labels, stamp case slips, case inserts, and other organizational tools. And the Evernote notes are now in my Current Products notebook. I share that notebook. Just email me to request an invitation. If you are already sharing my notebook, just open Evernote, make sure it starts synchronizing, and those new notes should start showing up automatically. I will be moving the retiring products out of that notebook and into my Retired Products notebook soon. I share that one too, just ask.

But all those tags in Evernote may need some organizing too. They’ll show up for you listed individually and alphabetically. You can group them together in categories so they are easier for you to find. Everyone has their own way of sorting, but this is what makes sense to me. You will not have access to change the tags themselves, but you can organize them they way you want. Or drag them all into “Tags by Bev”, close the category, and you won’t have to see any of them.

Note (4/28/18) I shared the way I can organize the tags. I have since found out you may not be able to move tags around like I can. If that’s the case, I am so sorry!

When you copy notes to your own notebook, you can edit the tags all you want. I didn’t mention in the video, you can rename any tag you have created and Evernote will automatically rename them in all the notes! For instance, I could right-click on say… “treats” and rename it “Treat containers and tags” and the “treat” tag in You’re So Sweet” will automatically be changed to the new “Treat containers and tags.” Is that cool or what?

My list of tags can be found  below, but I wanted to also share some videos from Stampin” Up!

There are more videos about products from the Occasions catalog here.

So here is my list of tags. I admit as I was listing them, I realized I should reorganize them a bit better so I did. This is the way I have them now.

Some other tags I use for the products I own.

  • #1 Wish
  • Demo this!

What tags do you think would be helpful? Are there some you think I should add?



I am eagerly awaiting these catalogs. The products will be available to customers starting January 3. Demonstrators have been able to pre-order the products for about a month. (If you like getting a jump on new products and if you like to save money, click here to find out how!) I have been working on my labels, case inserts, stamp case slips, and other organizational tools to share with you. I’m also ready to add the new Evernote notes to the Current Product notebook.

I order a new catalog for myself so I know when they are delivered to my customers. They are now listed as “Shipped” so I think I can post the labels, etc. I will wait until January 3rd to make the Evernote Notes available. Demonstrator support told me that the notebook is so close to posting the catalog online that it would violate the demonstrator policies.

A HUGE thank you goes to subscriber Lynette Gaines. She has caught a number of errors on previous resources I’ve made, so I asked if she might be willing to edit before I published the files. Boy, am I glad she was willing to do that! I’d made more than the usual number of errors this time. If you see any more errors, please let me know so I can fix them!
