Friday's "Tip of the Day"! - Episode 199

HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY!!! WOW..... what a week! LOTS going on AND starting on Monday, you will start seeing some AWESOME sneaks of my new release which will be available next Friday, June 24th!!! I am sooo super happy about this release & other "GOOD" stuff!;)
Welcome to another "Friday's Tip of the Day"! For today, I decided to touch on "punches"! Which I know alot of us have several punches that we don't even use & I will show you a simple way on how to utilize them more on a regular basis! Hope these tips help you out some!
Here is the card I made using my 1 1/4" square punch! I actually LOVE the way it came out! All of the sentiments used are from my stamp set "All Star Baby"! That little clear charm that you see w/the cutie baby feet in are called "Facets" by Tim Holtz! They are available @ Peachy Keen Stamps which you can find HERE!
***I failed to mention in my video that after you stamp all your sentiments on your paper, THEN use your punch! Make sure when you punch this out, keep all your punches very close together so you can read your sentiments! (Hope that made sense) hehehehee!:)***
here is the inside of my card!
Here is my video featuring my method on how I utilize my punches more & storing my punches!
A special "Surprise" giveaway! For an opportunity to win this AWESOME "Modern Label Punch", all you have to do is leave a comment HERE telling me how "YOU" store your punches & if you have any tips you would like to share, I would LOVE to hear them! GOOD LUCK!
Thank you for stopping by & have a FABULOUS weekend & a HUGE Shout out to ALL the Daddy's out there "HAPPY HAPPY FATHER'S DAY"! You are ALL TRULY APPRECIATED!;) xoxo's

  1. I found a canvas organizer that hangs from a curtain rod in my craft room. It has two columns of cubbies, one large, about 11x11 and the other smaller, just the size for plastic shoe boxes. The organizer came with several canvas boxes that slide right into their cubbies, but my punches are in one of the plastic shoeboxes I added. Very usable, not terrible expensive.

  3. Great video and I love that tip with the templates. Think I may do that. I store the majority of my punches in 2 clear over-the -door shoe bags/organizer. One hangs in my "craft closet" and the other over my craft room door.They are clear so you can see what you have at a glance, they take up space that normally would go unused and they are relatively cheap. The large MS punches sit on a shelf in my craft closet. Works well for me.
    Thanks for all you do Emma!

  4. Thanks for the great video!
    My punch storage is horrible!!! I have some baskets, I throw them in and put baskets on shelves.... Keeps them together but that's about the end of the pros to this method.

  5. I put them in a drawer... It's a mess!!!

  13. Love the card - what a great idea to use punches. I store all my punches in a drawer, which isn't very practical cause I can't see the small ones that fall to the bottom. Oh well.

All of my punches...all 5 of them (one is MIA) are on my desk in a cluttered fashion. I'm loving the suggestions other people are leaving. Love that modern punch, too!!

  16. My dear Hubby made me 3 shelves that sit over the window and my Marthda Stewart, Stampin up and EK Success punces sit on it so I can see them and they are at my fingertips. Love your blog.

  18. Really good tip, I have very few punches they all fit in a drawer but are visable and close to my work area. The card is darling, the sheer ribbon was a great choice. Thanks for the "give-a-way" I would love to add it to my small collection.

  27. I store mine in a large rubbermaid tub. All thrown together and I never use them. Going to get them out and punch out examples like yours. I love my punches but it is a hassle to find the right one. Thanks for this tip. Going to start right away...

  28. I only have a few punches and currently they are stored in a 10" x 10" handled tote bag. It's not the best solution since I have to dig through it each time I need one. So thank you for your tips today, I may just have to look into getting another storage tower just for punches. :)

    It was great meeting you at the circle crop also.

    I store my punches wherever I used them last.
    Just kidding
    I store them in a plastic set of drawers that is on rollers in a the closet of my art studio- and some are on a bookshelf, I don't have a lot of punches.

  31. Hi Emma! Thanks for the chance to win. I don't have but literally a handful of punches. Therefore, the time being, they are sitting on a shelf I have in my craft room/guest room. With your punch templates I have something similar for Cricut basic shapes. I put them on 8.5x11 paper and loaded it into my cricut and put the sizes of my circles, squares, etc on there and I then laminated it. However, after watching your video, I think I will make an album for them to be stored in. And just use binder rings to hold the album together, that way they can be expanded :) bought some binder rings at Walmart because I made a little book of card sizes and instructions on how to do them. Then I will put a picture of the card on the page so I know what type I want to do! Thanks so much again! Have a great weekend!

  32. Hi Emma, I don't have many punches. I store my in drawers. There are three little drawers together. I got them at Walmart. The two I use most are on a bookshelf next to my work table. Thanks for a chance to win. srgraham3603@bellsouth.net

  33. I store my punches in a plastic container. Not organized or labeled ( a mess!) LOL. When your foot is feeling a lot better; Please do a tutorial on the ribbon technique you did on Thursday's card. It was soo pretty.

  34. What a cute card. I love the punch tips you gave. I store my punches in one drawer. I don't have too many yet, but I like the idea of the paper you gave and think I will try that along with doing the same with my stamps so I can open a notebook and see them all at a glance. Thanks for sharing and for the chance at the give away. I look forward to many more tips.

  35. I do not have a big assortment of punches because I am just starting my collection. The ones that I do have fit in a small 5 in. x 5 in. plastic container.

  36. I store my large and med punches on the IKEA rails like a lot of scrappers do. But for the mini's I use the cups from IKEA that are made to hang on the rails. I punched the image in vinyl and put it on the outside of the cup. http://sarabugcraftroom.blogspot.com/2011/06/show-us-your-punch-storage.html

  40. Great Video as usual Emma. Love watching your videos so inspiring. Originally stored my punches in a big drawer but got to heavy, now store in plastic containers with attached lid from wally world categorized by brand per container. My craft room was originally the game room in my basement so has rock walls. Pool table (Covered with a tarp, regulation size so is huge) makes a fantastic work space. Thanks for the chance to win another awesome punch and for sharing your talent.

  41. I absolutely adore your card. The little charm against the "tiled" sentiment is phenomenal. I just recently and getting into using punches, so I really don't "store" them. They just sit in their own spot on my craft table. I have labeled them with tape so I can tell others what I have used in my projects. I look forward to seeing what others have to say about their storage tips, though!

    I store all my punches in a Creative Memories box. I punched each shape on card stock and laminated them individually. Then I made a hole on each laminated shape, put an eyelet on each hole, and keep all my shapes on a big ring that I have hanging from my scrap room wall.

    I store my punches in a similar type plastic multiple drawer that's next to me and it actually fits right under my table so they're always within arms length. I don't have as many as you do though but I'm working on it.

  72. Thanks so much for this opportunity!!! I use an over-the-door shoe hanger to store my punches. I try keep all the similar ones together. I have one on the closet door and I need to get another one for the door into the room. To keep them from flopping every time I open the door, I used 2 pieces of 1.5 inch ribbon and tied one piece around the top of the bottom row and the other just below the bottom of the top row (hope that makes sense).

  81. What a great idea that you punch on paper all your punch shapes. I do not have very many punches. I store them in those covered craft boxes I bought at Michaels.Most of my punches are decorative for the edges. I think I'll try this idea of yours and see if I end up using my punches a little bit more.
    I like your card. I made a scrapbook page kind of like that. It didn't have any stamping on it but some of the squares were pictures and some were different patterned papers.

  85. I store my punches in a drawer of one of those 4 drawer things, and for the larger heart ones, I put them in a canvas storage thing that fits into my 9shelf organizer from target.

    I use my label maker to put the names/size of the punch. Some of the older stampin' up didn't label them so that helps me tell what size they are.

    I love all your videos and look forward to each and everyone. I store my punches in those JEt Max Cubes with the drawers in them. I built an island with them and that is my cutting area and my punches are all close at hand. I would love to win this punch as I have no Stampin UP Rep where I live. I hope you pick me as I would seriously would love to have this.Thank you so much for being so generous to give us all the chance to win this wonderful punch. It would be my lucky day if you picked me because I have never won anything in my life. Oh I hope that will change soon. You can contact me at

    I store all my punches on little bars from ikea which is a store if you aren't familiar with it. They are all on my wall and I see them every time I sit at my desk. I love your idea with the paper and punch them out..I think I will work on doing that now that I have some free time on my hands...lol

  92. I have a drawer that I purchased at Michael's (with coupon of course). I can't remember the brand, but I bought many different units that stack and hold scrapbooking supplies. I love it, but will definitely use your idea to keep a punch template handy!!! Thanks for all the tips!

  97. i store all my punches in a lg. canvas bag. I used a variety of colored card stock and punched all my shapes and put them on a poster board. Then I used strips of card stockand punched all my boarder punches and put on the poster board also. the punches are insight and
    remind me to use them. I like the idea you shared. I just might do that also.

  99. I wish I could say that I have great, well organized method, but that wouldn't be true. I have quite a few EK Success border punches and they lined up very nicely in a drawer in my roller cart in two rows. But the rest are all odd sizes or the old lever style for which I've never really found a good storage solution so they are just tossed in a drawer.

  102. WOW...what an awesome give away!!! I LOVE punches...I am an addict...I too store mine in shoe holders that go over the door...One side of the door hold all my "precious" SU ones and the other side is all Other brands. I wish I had wall space to use the IKEA bigel rails to make them more visible.
    Blessings,

  105. I tried storing my punches in an over-the-door shoe bag but they were too heavy and it sagged. (I have several hundred.) Then I found the Crop in Style Punch Pal. It is similar to the shoe bag but made much stronger, especially for punches. It has clear pockets, comes in two sizes for small and medium or medium and large punches. Three bags fit on one side of a door as they are made to hang from each other. The punches are very accessible and are in plain view on the door to my craft room. My larger border punches are in a drawer.

  107. Hi Miss Emma I love your tips day. I store my punches in the over the door(clear) shoe organizer. I actually have 3 of them. One for punches one for rubber wooden mouts, and one for spray cans large glues, Etching and other items that come in larger bottles or containers. I love these things it clears up a lot of space for me. Victoria :)

  108. Emma, love your card. I never would have thought of using the square punch that way. I, basically, store my punches the same way that you do. I do not have that many and need more. I love that you punched them out on chipboard (cereal boxes or whatever). I am going into my craftroom now and do that. TFS and the chance to win. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com

  109. love the card! i have never created a card like this.. hmmm. need to try! so simple but yet so cool!!! I store my punches since i have NO (tears a flowing) craft room but just shelves.

  112. My most used punches sit on a shelf above my craft desk. The others are stored in a decorative box with a flip top (that I got at Michael's for 1/2 price!), and that's stored on top of a bookshelf that holds my paper. Your give away punch is one that I don't have, so it would be GREAT to win!

  114. My punches are just thrown into plastic boxes which makes it very hard to find whichever punch I am looking for. I have a notebook of my punches where I have glued in the punched out piece, but this is only so I will know which punches I have when I go shopping. I like your idea much better. Thanks for all the tips.

  118. Hello Emma!

    I store my punches on a wire shelving, they just kind of sit in between the wires. I've also seen them stored in like a shoe hanger with different compartments, but it's made for like your jewelry or craft stuff. Seen it on HSN.com. Thanks for the giveaway.

  120. Thanks for the tip. I have a 3 drawer rolling cart where I store all my punches. I like the idea of punching an index of all your punches. I'm definitely to use that idea. I think I'll also put the "punched out" pieces on the drawer front so I can find the punch quickly.

  121. LOVE the tip about having all of them punched out already! You are so smart!! I have my punched stored in clear shoe orgaizers on my 2 doors but I am out growing that so now need to decide what to do! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win!! PS DAD loved his card.

  123. I only buy punches that close like this...they take up less space. I store them in plastic bins.

  124. Emma, thanks for the idea for the using templates! I need to do that. Right now my stamps are stored in a basket but hard to find what I'm looking for. I think I will try the plastic container like you used because it is so much easier to find the one you want to use.

  145. Hi Emma! Thanks for the storage and organization ideas. I don't have any great tips for you as I keep my punches in a bucket on a shelf in my ikea storage wall unit. It is super easy to just grab the bucket and bring it to my work area for using and then put it back : ) I love the tip and am hoping to win the punch! Oh BTW I love all your videos they keep me inspired!

  156. OMG Emma you are posting the inside of the cards that you create. Wonderful, I love it. I thought that it would be a good idea.

    Anyways, I store my punches in a rolling cart. It has three drawers for the flat punches and the other two deep drawers for the bigger punches. I roll it under my table when I am not using them. I would love to get the new punch that you are offering. PICK ME PICK ME

  157. I store my punches in a drawer. I also have the smaller ones in a softsided pencil case which zips open so I can easily see all the punches. My edge punches are stored in a Creative Memories zip bag which works very well for them and I can easily identify them.

  158. Hi Miss Emma! I store the bulk of my punches in 2 hanging shoe racks that have swivel hangers on them. I bought them to originally hang in the closet of my craft room, but they're too heavy when they're full. Now they hang on an over the door hook. I would LOVE to win this punch!!! I've had it on my Stampin' Up wish list forever!! Thanks for the opportunity! Happy crafting!!

  159. Thanks for another great tip Emma! I don't have a whole buncha punches so I store mine in a couple of those craft keeper boxes (the 12 x 12 size ones with lids). They came in a little cart to keep a few of those in, so it works for me!

  160. WOW, super sweet card and awesome tips. I just store mine in some plastic drawers that are made for 8 1/2 x 11 paper. They stack one layer deep pretty well, but I'm always looking for new and better ideas. You are amazing! Hugs- Glora
