Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It's that time during the week when we gallop around the globe to check out the creative desks of our counterparts! This fun romp through the blogosphere is courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. Make sure you pop over there and have a go at checking out all the links! It's quite a challenge! (Confession: I'm terrible about making it around to everyone and about leaving comments. It doesn't mean I haven't visited you .... but many times I whip right onto the next site without leaving a comment. --hanging head in shame-- )
Not much happening here yet today, as I'm gearing up to address a couple of card challenges this morning, plus the fact that I did some cleaning and reorganizing yesterday. I'm also debating about applying for another design team, but I'm not sure I'm up for the rejection again! Maybe I should start my own challenge blog so I can head up my own design team!! What do you think????!!!!! Any takers????
Here's the reorganizing I did yesterday. I flipped these two cubes from landscape to portrait and purchased (with a 50% off coupon!) at JoAnn's a Cropper Hopper value pack paper library.
I decided I could get more bang for my buck if I used the interior pockets and the holder itself separately.
I had been using these envelope-type storage folders (below) for my 12 X 12 papers, but they can get bulky and stretched out of shape. I just felt like they were taking up more room than necessary. However, I'm not sure I'm sold on storing the paper vertically rather than horizontally, as I'm concerned about it warping or curling.
The only issue I see so far with using the exterior holder on its own is how to corral the scraps of the different groups of paper. I remembered I had some of these plastic slash pocket thingies (yes, that's the technical term) and thought they would work well. We'll see how it goes. If I end up liking this method of storage, I'll go back next week and buy another value pack, since the guy at JoAnn's gave me another 50% off coupon good for next week! Wheeeee!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves.
