I am moving from my tiny craft corner to a little bit larger “craft wall.” The room is small, but I plan to use every inch along that one wall. The room still needs to be available as a guest room with the Murphy bed and a baby room with the Pack and Play and diaper changing for babysitting our granddaughter. All the craft stuff needs to tuck away out of sight for the guests and safely locked up for the baby. And it also needs to be clear and safe for our new Guide Dog Puppy in Training to play while I craft.

There was just no room for my Color Caddy. What to do? I didn’t want to spend lots of money after splurging on the granite counter. I am so happy with what I came up with! I have a great storage solution for the price of one sheet of foam core board, some card stock, and adhesive. It even gave me a place to tuck in my Stampin’ Scrub!

You can make it for just a few stamp pads or for the whole collection like I did. I usually include links for the supplies, but you probably really do have everything you need. I used Fast Fuse to make each stamp pad box, but you could use Tear and Tape. I used Glue Dots to adhere the boxes to the foam core board, but you could use any adhesive.

When I saw the 2017-2018 annual catalog, my mind immediately put this stamp set with the Embossing Paste and the Decorative Ribbon Punch. They all seemed made for each other. I made this card first while on a camping trip, so I’m sure you can do it!

The Daisy Delight bundle will have you making all kinds of cards. I also used the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper® for this project. The hardest part is deciding which of all the gorgeous designs to use!

I think this is a fabulous beginner project. You could make this card with just the Daisy Delight Bundle, the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, the Whisper White and Night of Navy Card Stock, and the two Classic Stampin’ Pads. The Embossing Paste adds a lot of texture for not much money, but I suppose you could use a different design from the Designer Series Paper. You won’t need a Big Shot. You could cut the banner ends with Snips. You don’t have to use the glitter. You could stamp the flower center instead of the Faceted Gem. You can do this!

I took a box of supplies on our camping trip to the eastern Sierras. I could have made a dozen different cards with the supplies I brought. I think it’s fun to stamp on the go… unless it gets windy! I made this card for my friend Martha who has a birthday the day this posted.

Make your own Basic Tool Kit to go

I don’t have room to start stamping! This link shows how I’ve packed a card base and layers of every color of card stock, the tool kit, blocks, the Basic Tool Kit, a few stamp sets and 20 stamp pads into just two small boxes. It also has the cutting plan to get a card base, a large layer, and two small layers from a sheet of card stock.


When my husband returned to our campsite after fishing, he took this picture of my camp stamp studio. He thought it was funny to see the hatchet there close at hand. No cards were actually harmed by the hatchet. And yes, my little box is nice and organized, but as soon as I start working I have stuff all over the table.
