WOYWW #355..Fixing an annoyance...



Hey,

Happy WOYWW everyone.

It's my fave time of the week where I get to join Julia at her blog Stamping Ground and hang out with my desk buddies and see what they have been up to!

My desk today has a story. This is the photo I took on Sunday morning. I never leave my desk like this anymore, because it is in my bedroom and it's not fair on Hubby to look at a hot mess. So imagine my surprise when I went off to my desk on Sunday AM and was greeted by this mess. I don't remember leaving it like this..LOL..late night Furcrafters perhaps?

Last weekend, I finally solved a problem that has been bothering me.

Like most people I use clear pockets and fridgebinz to store my stamps -

Picture of my Fridgbinz in their Ikea Expedit home..
It's simple, effective and easy to use and build on.

But I have a few stamp sets that are taller than my pockets...man has this been annoying me!

So I spent Saturday morning looking for a solution...I came across this - genius idea..

You cut up the cover sheet and then collage onto the paper insert you use and then laminate it. I didn't use my Zyron to laminate the sheets (as per the link), I used my laminator, meaning I could do x2 stamp sets at once. I did 10 in total.

Here is the result -

I forgot to take a photo of the before, but I did keep the paper sleeve that the stamp set was on. See how much taller than my clear pocket it is!

I am super pleased, it works really well, means everything is neat and tidy and my inner OCD friend can go to sleep for awhile.

Here is a little card for you WOYWWers -

Have a great day and have a Happy Easter (Hubby and I are off to Tampa for Easter), see you for desk nosying later.

  1. I like how you transfered your stamps all into one. I agree with you all the different heights shapes and sizes can drive a Crafter crazy
    If they like things neat and organized.
    Have a great weekend away for Easter hugs Nikki? ?
