Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by! As some of you may remember from my earlier posts, I used to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, which means in those days all my supplies were from Stampin’ Up. As time went on, I discovered there are many wonderful companies out there making supplies for card making. I recently started working at Ellen Hutson (ellenhutson.com), which is an online paper crafting supply company. I work in the warehouse fulfilling orders, and as I go “shopping” in the warehouse (picking the items which customers have bought), then packaging up the items into mailing boxes, I have seen a myriad of amazing products I didn’t know even existed! Now, just so ya know, I don’t get a commission on anything you may purchase from Ellen Hutson as a result of my mentioning it, and every product I have from EH I have purchased. But I thought you might be interested in hearing about some of these products that I’ve fallen in love with.
Today I want to highlight one product in particular, magnetic die storage sheets. These things are awesome! Basically it’s like those fridge magnets, but in large sheets that you can cut to fit your own needs, or use in full sheets. They come in a variety of handy sizes. Here’s a link for the medium size, but they also have x-small, small, and large: medium magnetic die storage sheets.
In the photo above, you can see that I have taken a sheet, cut it to fit the back of the cardboard that came with the stamp set, and attached it there using my tape runner. Now the dies that coordinate to that set are stored with the set and none of those tiny dies fall off and get lost. Genius! As I make other videos and posts I will highlight other products that I have found to be particularly helpful or unique.
The card uses a stamp set called Three Amigos from Mama Elephant, a brand I had not heard of until recently, and a die from Heffy Doodle. The two patterned papers come from an old 6×6 book from Stampin Up called Pretty Petals. Take a look at the video below for details, measurements, and how it all came together.
I hope you enjoy using this card as a jumping off point for your own creativity. I’m a firm believer of “the best products are those you have on hand”. Have a great day!!
