    Here's a picture of my stamp storage - well most of it - I need to more files to finish it off. The rest are in A4 folders but I'm changing to A5 because they're easier to handle. Another good storage wheeze is, I use 3 of those hanging shoe caddies on the insides of my craft cupboard doors. They're great for miscellaneous stuff. I've just been to check what actually is in there and it includes: pliers, eyelet fixer, ribbon on reels that won't fit into my ribbon tins, packets of foam pads, fabric conditioner sheets, barbecue sticks, string (a lot of string) hot glue sticks ..... Please keep the ideas coming - I need all the help I can get! Bc x

    pretty birthday card

    Hi I haven't been here for ages - I disabled it to stop the barrage of awful spam I was getting, and then couldn't get back on, but now I've got it going again, hopefully minus spam. Here's a card I made for one of my crafting friends a couple of weeks ago Bcx

    Advice on sticky stuff...

    I use double sided tape (the 5cm wide sort) I put some on the back of the card before die cutting, and once it's die cut, just peel the backing layer off and hey presto a sticky backed die cut. You can also put the tape on the front of the card, cut out and then cover your die cut with glitter. Great for butterflies, snowflakes ...

    Hi Maritrez - you mean stash has to be organised! Seriously though, I do have one bit of organisation that works for me. I have all (well most) of my clear stamps in A5 binders in themes. If there is say a butterfly in a set of flower stamps, I take it out and put it with butterflies. Now all my acrylic sentiments are in 2 folders arranged by subject, it's so easy to find a greeting which fits the card I'm working on. And getting rid of most of the packaging means they take up much less room. But as for the rest of my stash ....

    baby card

    Hi I was asked to make a baby card for someone, so this is what I came up with. I saw a card with a pram like this on it on Pinterest and I thought it would be quite easy to adapt it to make the whole card into a pram. I had fun doing it Bc
