When we updated our kitchen years ago, one of the most important things my husband wanted was a pantry. With the original kitchen we had very little space to store staples and supplies so it was a feature Jim looked forward to adding. And as the main cook of the household, he has a pretty good idea what is supplied – the different dry ingredients such as the flours, sugars, grains, pastas, canned goods, etc – and he keeps a list of what needs to be replaced. I also keep a running list of supplies needed but mine is geared to paper crafting.
Some Of My Stampin’ Staples!
When I was designing my cards for my first Christmas Card Class last week, I turned to staples to create this elegant but simple card. Night Of Navy is rarely missing from my supplies. It’s one of my favorite neutrals and a color I can pair with multiple choices. I keep a large supply of foils, especially gold and silver. I am never without those choices to use for mats, dies, and punches. And if you could deconstruct my card above you would see the deckled rectangle die was cut OUT OF THE CENTER of the gold foil mat! A simple trick that helps to make the most of the foil! Another staple? Embossing folders that have a simple and subtle texture to them. Even though this folder is retired, the Tasteful Texture folder will not be leaving my stampin pantry. It’s a keeper and hopefully will come around in the clearance rack in the future for those who do not have it.
What kinds of things do you deem necessary in your stampin’ pantry? Vellum???? Foils???? Colors such as Basic Black or Real Red???? As with all pantries, they are filled with personal preferences. We are heading to VBS in just a few minutes, so have a great day and I hope you have time to go stamp and play with your things in your stampin’ pantry! Until next time – God Bless!Product List
