A fantastic Punch storage Unit

One of my all time favorite crafters is Patter Cross, she is amazing, I love all her tips and art work! Every Friday, she posts an organizational post, this week, she featured this fantastic find! Sue Nagel, from Stampin Things has created this gorgeous storage unit for your punchies.

And here is what Sue says about her new organizer:

You can custom fit the 'Punches and More' to your needs. This NEW organizer will hold every size punch (small, medium and large). This organizer has a tray at the top for additional storage, a lazy susan base, and spins for easy use. The Punches and More Organizer will hold up to:

**30 Large Punches (or) 30 Medium Punches (or) a combination of both
**24 Large or Medium Punches with 22 Small Punches
**Additional storage on top tray for hand punches, other manufacturer's punches, and more!

Notice how she has all of her Creative Memories punches stacked on end to give her even more storage space on top! And look at the little bucket on top containing all of her small hand-held punches. Tons of room! The dimensions of this unit are: 18" high, 14" wide, and 12 1/2" deep, and it is stackable as are her other units!

Now for the BIG news!
Sue is very generously giving this unit away to ONE of my AMAZING subscribers!!!!! Yes, that means YOU could receive this awesome unit! What do you need to do to possibly win this unit? You must create a card, tag, layout, or altered item using PUNCHES (not die cuts)!! It must be a NEW creation, and you must post it to an online gallery or blog with a link to this contest. Your gallery post or blog post MUST contain a list of the punch or punches you used. You then need to come back to this post and leave a link to your creation by Thursday, June 4th, at 11:59 p.m. Central Time! One lucky winner will be announced next Friday!!

I found this information over at Obsessed with scrapbooking!
Have you got a Sam's Club membership? Did you know that they sell a VAST number of scrapbooking products online for home delivery? If you don't have a membership, Sams Club is currently running a special offer to join for $15 just for the summer.

Anyway, looking through the over 40 pages of items, I was excited to see great Copic marker pricing!
