Does anyone remember Patterr'spost last week that linked HERE...and showed you how to make your own Clip-it-Up?? (You haven't been??? well you just need to boogie on over and check it out!) Pretty cool and great directions!! Well, I kinda made the idea waaaaay easier. I bought this Baker's rack a while back and had intentions of hooking stuff to it. Well, guess what? The side of the unit is the PERFECT place to hange all of my Unity stamps that are mounted on the thin wooden cassettes!! I'll show you another day what I've done with all of my un-mounted ones. (What I will do as the collection grows, which it IS doing...no idea!!)
But anywho, Is this cool or what? Cost >>>less than $5!! All I bought was a box of jumbo paperclips. I split them open right above the loop with the wire cutter on my needle nose pliers that came in my SU! tool kit (did anyone know it had a wire cutter?? It took my 12 year old daughter to show me that...DUH!!) Then they hang right on the loop!! Here is the closeup:
Kinda cool, huh?? I am so stinkin proud of myself for figuring this out!! The space was already there and it is perfect...they are still almost in reach and better yet...in VIEW!! Thanks Patter for leading me to that blog!!
The original reason I got this rack is I was running out of room...yes, on the huge wall of built ins!! still not enough storage! The punch situation has driven me bonkers!! BUT I finally have a solution I like :) They are stored on this unit, right near my island (you can view my stamp island in THIS POST) and right beside my Wall Units (you can see those HERE). Its just the extra room I needed!! Here is one shelf of the large punches:
The rack is actually 6 feet tall so it gives me lots more shelves and storage!! I'll share some more storage ideas this week and/or next :)
BUT, on to the page for the day!! This page came together pretty quick. I was looking at piles of pattern paper that I had sorted out from kits...wanting to just USE them and not re-file them to be lost again forever. so I decided to make a pile that I would MAKE myself use this month!! <<I'll let you know how that goes, bwaaahaha>>. The paper for this one is a couple of fun sheets from Scenic Route that Ive had around forever.
The fun stamps are from Unity (am I in love with this company or what???)...Brooke just posted a fun page over at the Unity blogthis week using the same stamp from the same set (Best Friends). Its a really fun set that I got from one of Angela's wild Random specials...they are so awesome!! The pics are some of Perry...he is really hard to get a shot of anymore. He would way rather be on the other end of the camera. In fact he takes incredible shots...but I want just one or two of him once in a while! But this is how you will normally find him at any point during the day...tucked behind his laptop :)
Thats it for today! I have some more H&M for you tomorrow and my Scrappy sketch will be back on Sunday! I have a new scrapper designing with us...can you guess who she is? I'll let you know in 2 more days!
