My workspace shrinks too. Dil was able to buy a case of pink cardstock for $4. We use it for everything! By the time I mess my space up it's all I need.

I have a very large self healing cutting mat which was originally put on my desk because I am also a quilter. I don't need to worry about the surface of the desk getting ruined because of it. I just take paper from the printer to put on top of the mat. I really like the wall calendar idea. Might try that when they go on sale again.

I'm using a pile of old computer paper, ya know the kind with the holes down the side? One of these days I'll run out and I'll refer back to these cool ideas, but for now... the old rocks we used to chisel on will do!

I use catalogues we get in the mail that I would otherwise toss. The JC Penney, BB&B, and L&T catalogues are largeish, at least compared to the PajamaGram catalogue I usually use.

(I don't know if I'm the only one who stamps off on the pajama models' faces.)

Like many others, I use the backs of old calendar pages, as well as recycling rejects from the computer printer or junk mail. I also picked up some padded vinyl Christmas place mats for 25 cents at an after-Xmas sale a couple of years ago, and I use that under my scrap paper. This gives me a larger working area, protects my desk, and gives me just the right amount of padding underneath because I have unmounted all my stamps and use them on acrylic blocks. The vinyl cleans quickly, and if I have to do a little exacto knife work, I don't have to worry about cutting my desk (as long as I don't push too hard).

I also use a large self healing mat...on top of that I usually use a piece of scrap paper to stamp off onto. If I am doing something really messy, I also have a Ranger non-stick craft sheet which I love (thanks MonaLisa for the recommendation!)

My craft table is a 4' plastic folding table, the surface is kinda rough, so I used the idea of someone else and covered it w/craft paper. When gluing or stamping on the edge of the card I use any left over paper. If I'm cutting something I used whatever type of mat goes with the cutter. When I'm gluing and the placement needs to be precise I put the card on a self healing mat w/1/4" increments. I really like the craft paper cause I can write dimensions on it for the current project. I change it when ever it gets messy.

If I'm in my scrap room I use my craft mat so that I can blend inks easily, and drag them to my paper instead of direct transfer. When I water color or H2O I use newsprint, discarded computer paper, 12x12 white or about anything else I can find to clean brushes, blener pens, stamps, etc. on. I've even been known to just pull something out of the trash can.

My work surface is a solid core door that I painted with the intention of when it gets too inky I'll sand it and start over.

I will say that when I go to retreats I have the messiest area. I saved my 12x12 work sheet one retreat to scrap it.

I use one of those large desk top calenders. Lots of room to test colors and write yourself notes. When the page is filled up or just too messy tear a month off and you have a clean page to start over.

My tablecloth has a flannel-ish back, it used to hang flannel side out on the wall so I could stick my quilt squares/fabric to - the fabric and flannel stick together like velcro, no pins needed!

I too use the SU! grid paper. Love the lines to align stuff.

I keep a stack of the back of printed paper for me to sketch or try and see how a stamp combo works etc

I did buy a while ago a big foam pad from M's but don't use it much since I got the grid paper.

I really think the big calendar idea is fabulous! In the beginning you have a fair bit of padding, as well. Hmmmm ... I think I'll wait until the new year when calendars go on sale, then pick one up. Lots of work space -- much more than the cardstock I'm using.

I bought the stamping foam mat from Joannes. I love it and will not stamp without it now. It only cost $4.99. They have them in burgundy and a pine green. They about 12x18 inches. I have gotten all over it many times and it wipes right up!

I also use a big desk calendar that I picked up for 50 cents or something after the new year last year. Will be looking for a couple more this year.

I use the brown paper that comes in the boxes from SU! If I need another layer, I use old flyers or stuff that I've printed from the computer that I don't need anymore.

I buy the largest sized pads of Construction Paper from Michael's with my 40% off coupon. I create three "books" out of each pad as I find the full pad a little too high to work with comfortably. It not only protects my work surface, but I can write on it (measurements, colours etc) and it provides a little cushioning to give me a good stamped image.

I also have several Masonite boards that my hubby cut to size for me. These provide a sturdy stamping/punching surface (the long table has some give). I covered these with freezer paper (older ones were covered with wax paper but I prefer the freezer paper) and then I attached a sheet of SU's grid paper.


If I am doing a lot of messy work I will layer my surface with scrap paper (recycling!). And, I keep the usable pats of the freezer paper whenever I need to recover the tables.

My stamping buddy is a nurse in a urologist's office. They were getting rid of a bunch of rolls of examinating table paper. The doctor didn't want paper with advertising on it -- so my friend brought a bunch of rolls home and shared them with me. So, when I stamp, I have paper with advertising for Cialis on my table. LOL!!!

I just recently picked up one of those flannel backed table cloths for 2.50 at big lots. I was thrilled because they were not that cheap at ebay.

I use and love the SU grid paper because of the measurements on it. I use them all the time. I bought my pad four years ago and still have plenty left! I stamp on it until I can't see the grid anymore! My SU demo uses a thin plastic table cover (you know those big rolls you can buy to cover picnic tables?)

Someone that attended the stamp club I went to has access to large rolls of this this white paper....I want to say she works in printing for the local school district, but I am not sure if that is quite the case. She gets a ton of the rolls for free, and so I came home with one. I probably wont be attending the club anymore since I am now a demo myself, so I may have to send a message to my upline asking if she can talk to this person about getting more from her.

This paper is great. The roll is really heavy, and the paper is kind of glossy, and think! (you could wrap a present and not see through it at all)....I use both sides until they are pretty dirty. Good stuff! Great for covering a table with if you are hosting a workshop too.

Another source for end rolls of paper is the local newspaper. You can use the paper on your work table, and the paper (newsprint) is perfect for kid's art. I always had a roll in the house when I was up to my ears in rug-rats.

I use the 12x12 tempered glass cutting mat. I think it is sold to use with circle scissors but I got mine at a rummage sale. It works great for me now, my last cutting mat was ruined when I heat embossed on it and it warped very badly! It cleans easily, has a grid for quick measurments and any stuck glue comes right off with a razor blade.

I buy large spiral bound sketch pads on sale at Hobby Lobby. The pages are very thick, so the opened pad makes nice padding for stamping. The pages are also perforated, so I can pull a page off when it gets messy and I use the back side. Or, I just flip the pad over. When I'm done, I simply fold the book up and put the pad away!

I use a large quilting cutting mat and then a piece of 11x17 paper from work that is from the recycling bin! I just flip it over and it works great - never ending paper flow from my office!

I use a desk pad. It's kinda like a desk calendar--same size even--like others have talked about here, except it doesn't have ANY writing on it. It's just 50 sheets of plain white paper. I can experiment with colors on it, jot down measurements for layers, etc. And when I'm done with my project, I roll it up from the bottom to catch unusable scraps and toss it in the trash can. Helps a lot with cleanup! I think it was about $10, but it does last me about a year.
Y'all have a blessed CHRISTmas!
