Good Morning! As some of you know I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and June is our Annual Catalog Release. Every year when the new catalog comes out I re-evaluate my craft room. Parting with some things I don't want anymore and making a place for all the new stuff I am planning to purchase. He He!
I keep my Embossing Folders, Framelits, Thinlits in Standard Stamp Cases on a shelf.
I like it this way. I have them in alphabetical order and I put my own labels on the spine with a label maker so I can read what it is at a glance. I also put a picture of the folder in a "catalog" where I can look through to find just the one I want and then pull it off the shelf to use. I'll share my catalogs at another time.
The standard size folders fit perfectly into their standard stamp cases.
But, last year Stampin' Up! introduced the 6x6 embossing folders. They don't fit into the standard cases. Sigh! So I looked high and low for a case that would work to no avail. I didn't want to come up with a different system for storage at this point so....
Silhouette Cameo to the rescue! I used my Silhouette Cameo software to design a box that would hold the folders.
A bottom box with a lid that slides over the bottom. I cut the image of the folder from the insert and attached it to the front of the box.
I also like having my room look pretty as well as functional so I had my dear hubby build me a bakers rack for my room which is where I put those folders I've been talking about as well some other things.
Way cool, huh?
Thanks for stopping by. If you are interested in ordering Stampin' Up! products or in becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator please feel free to leave me a comment and I'll get back to you about how you can do that. Oh!
