Stampin’ Up! is a great company with wonderful products. (You can pick up a shopping code and shop for them here.)

You can order the Pack to Play Bag Full of Stampin’ Up! Adhesives here and pick whether you want the Large Black or Medium Gray Bag that includes your choice of a full Stampin’ Seal adhesive. OR if you already have a Stampin’ Seal case, you can choose a Seal+ refill for the same price as they are the same price in the catalog

There are subtle differences between the Medium Gray Bag and the Large Black Bag which are shown in about 10 minutes of this video. Black is slightly taller, has a pocket on the top instead of the zipper & has a handle to carry it on the side. The pen holder loops are tighter on the gray one so they’ll hold a marker, but not a Take Your Pick Tool. It also has a double zipper pull where the black one only has one zipper pull.

While other items are shown in the video so you have an idea of what will fit, these items are included with your choice of bag:

  • Stampin’ Seal Full Case OR Stampin’ Seal+ Refill
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • Tear & Tape
  • Glue & Residue Remover (not SU) (Shown farther down as a separate item)
  • 6″ Ruler (not SU)

Adhesive Stuff

Apply Fine Tombow Liquid Glue

Get 10 bottles. If one seals up and you can’t unclog it, just add a new top.

Tombow Glue Holder

Pick from over 15 colors to hold your Tombow Glue. Next time, I’m getting Fire Engine Red!

Erase any glue overflow

Stampin’ Up! used to sell these adhesive erasers. They’re great to have on hand.

Better than Washi Tape
Use & reuse small pieces of this tape over & over to hold down your dies. 700″ should last the rest of my crafting lifetime.

This Frog Tape is great for holding down your Water Color Paper around the edges
to combat warping.


I use these good quality non-stick scissors for cutting sticky things so I don’t mess up my Paper Snips.

My Favorite Big Cutter

This 12″ Heavy Duty Rotary Carl Cutter is perfect for cutting up to 10 sheets of card stock. I don’t replace the blades as often as I replace the cutting mats. I had a larger one of these for 15 years and just replaced it with this smaller model in June 2020.

I replace these cutting mats more than I replace the blades. You can turn them 3 times before disposing of them. That means four sides to wear out.

I’ve had this box cutter for a couple years now. Cuts through the box & tape, but not you because it has a ceramic blade. This version has a locking blade which is easier to grip.

These are the easy to replace replacement blades for the Carl Cutter above.


Anti-Static Pouch

Use this to remove all the little bits
before you emboss.
(similar to our old Embossing Buddy)

3 Teflon Sheets

1 for messy stuff, 1 for heat embossing
& a spare when you need it

3 Craft Tweezers

Hold your paper where you want it and quit burning your fingers when heat embossing!

Writing and Erasing

Don’t know what to write on the inside of your cards? This book has helped me immensely. I keep the Kindle on my phone so I’ll always know where it is, but the Hard Cover or Paperback would make a nice gift.

Things don’t always go right. Sometimes you have to remove the evidence.

Fine Point 7mm pens

Write inside your cards.
Erase if you need to.
Just don’t use them
to write checks or legal documents.
See how we used them here.

Sand Erasers to remove regular ink and pen

Use this pair of erasers
with your Stamparatus
or stamp positioner
to save your hands.

White Gel Pens

Love them or hate them, these were the highest rated. I’ve used this brand. Do you have one you like better?

Magnets & Magnetics

These 5″x 7″magnetic sheets are perfect to holder your dies inside your stamp cases or onto another surface. They’re strong enough to hold, yet easy to remove.

Pack of 12 Magnets

This smaller package of 12 is a different brand but same quality.

Pack of 25 Magnets

This package of 25 is slightly thicker than the others.

No More Lost Dies!

These 3 trays are great to spread around for a quick place to throw your dies until your creative time is over. The smallest one is pretty small. The large one fits almost everything and is by the machine. The round one is by where I stamp.

Or just get this 6″ dish


Ever drop a die under a table or into a hard to reach area? Keep this nearby and forget about moving the furniture. This affordable tool stores at 6-8″ and telescopes to 30″. Will pick up items way heavier than a die. (2 pack available so that you can keep one in the garage.)

Magnetic Board

Use under your Stampin’ Up! Glass Mat to make it magnetic or hang it on your wall to use to attach things.


This shelf has reduced so much clutter on my table.

Organize Your Time with a Pomodoro Timer: Keep yourself focused and on track with this easy to use timer. Available in 60 and 30 in different colors from the same link. HINT: I bought the 60 minute timer in white and then later bought the 30 minute in blue because the time segments fit me better. Still glad I have both and I can still use them in different places and situations.

Really Useful Box 2.1 Liter

Holds my cardboard mounted embellishments. Couldn’t find one the right size on Amazon. This link will take you to Staples. They were less than $6 when I purchased them.

I cut my DSP cardboard into 4″ x 6″ pieces to separate them.

These bags are great to carry the small crafting stuff around or for general traveling. Seems like a lot but they’re thicker, prettier and there are 10 bags. There are other pattern options.

This revolving media storage is available in different colors. It holds 288 Stampin’ Up! stamp cases. I chose black but it comes in 3 different wood tones as well.

These are great sturdy shelves and just the right size to hold my scraps in 2 of these. Real quality and easy to put together. Just be sure to put the shelves in BEFORE you put the back on.

Everything Else

This little ladybug is so cute & great to vacuum all the little bits on your stamping area or kitchen counter.

Fun Little Vacuum

They have other characters too like Spiderman or a little green bug.

Best Desk Lamp Ever!

I have 2 of these. A white one over my cutting area & a black one over my stamping area.
3 Color Modes, Dimmable with 10 Brightness Levels. Whiite or Black.

Hand Massager

Check out this hand massager to fix your tired hands with a 20 minute massage!

I love this thing! You can choose how intense, what type of massage and whether you want heat.

I can massage my hands at least 6 times and leave it in a drawer for a week before I need to recharge it.

NOTE: A bit pricey but so worth it. The price fluctuates. I got it for around $69 with a coupon and before tax.

Clear T Rulers

Helps you get things straight. You can buy one, but for $1 more, you can have two!

Make a Wobble Card!

These springs are available in 2 different sizes and different sized packages.
