Sometimes bigger is better…

Hi there and happy Wednesday to you from Rhonda!  I'm so excited today, I get to share with you the biggest most exciting thing to hit my scrappy room ever...  are you ready?  It's the Simply Renee Clip-It-Up Floor Model

When this beautiful piece of organizational wonderment arrived in my home, I have to honestly tell you I did a total happy dance!  That night I put it together and it was so easy and I found myself looking at this in about 35 minutes.  This product has completely altered my workspace and made my creative time so much more efficient.  You know what they say though, a picture is worth a thousand words... so here we go!  I'll give you a little Floor Model tour-o-rama, *grin*.

First of all, here is my scrappy corner of heaven.  I create at this desk, and am right handed, so it just worked perfectly to place this on the right side of my desk.  You will see that there are four tiers on my floor model.  I added an additional one so I could maximize the space that I have.  The cool thing about the Floor Model is that just like the other models, you can turn the tiers.  Things that I need are really easy to look for and find.

For the first tier of my floor model, I decided to tackle my alpha's collection and my bling collection.  My alpha's used to be in plastic shoe boxes and some of them were in kits, still in their respective bags.  Still others were in my little rolling cart.  I now have them all in one place and that is so much nicer!  I can now also see how many duplicates that I have or if I am lacking in a color.

I did the same process for my bling and arranged by height.  I had my bling stored in a few different areas of my workspace as well and it was frustrating when I needed to find something that I knew I had!  This actually inspired part of my project that I'm going to share with you after the tour.

image

For the second tier, you will find my Spellbinders and some collections of MME rub-ons, die cuts and some binding materials.  I have my die cut station just to the right of my floor model, so I hung up all of my Spellbinder's so they are all within easy reach and visibility.  I can't tell you how much I love this!!!

image

For the third tier, you will find my favorite papers, my design team papers and other special projects.  I also really fell in love with my Clip It Up Zip Bags!  I have both the small and the large and for some collections, it is so nice to place your matching embellies in the bag and hang with the papers.  I don't have to wonder where those coordinating items are, they are handy and I can quickly look to see what I need.  If you haven't tried those with your Clip-It-Up, I highly recommend getting a few.  You'll love them!

image

Now it's bonus time, my fourth tier that I added to my Floor Model!  I decided that I was going to use this tier for keeping my fabric projects.  Recently my 3 year old little guy has become thoroughly enamored with Toy Story 3.  I found some theme fabric and plan to make him a quilt with it.  He is going to be so excited to get a Buzz and Woody blanket!

image

Well, I hope you're still with me, thank you for taking my "Floor Model" tour today!  Remember when I said that my organization of my bling prompted a project?  It truly did!  I forgot that I had this really pretty sepia toned bling and when I found this photo, I knew that they belonged together!  I had also picked up this artists tray and was having a hard time deciding what to do with it.  I finally just sat down with some super yummy Graphic 45 and 7 Gypsies papers and of course, the ever fabulous Ranger embellishments by Tim Holtz.  This is what I came up with:

image

I cut apart the bling and placed some on the tray and the other pieces flow into the compartments.  It's kind of hard to see in the photos but I have used foam dots for dimension in several of the compartments.  These trays and shadowboxes are all the rage right now and so much fun!

Thank you for spending a few moments here today.  Make sure and tell Santa if you need a Floor Model at your home!!!

Rhonda

  4. Dear Santa,
    Id like to ask for one thing for Christmas this year and that is a Clip it up Floor Model. If you look at these beautiful pictures on this blog youll see why Im wanting one of these, my cluttered craft room would be organized and clean. Everything would be hung up on this amazing organizer and Id be able to find everything all in one place.
    Oh Dear Santa, pls think about this.

    Cheers

  29. I have wished for the floor model since the first time I saw it. I love that you added another tier, I often feel that with shorter items I am wasting so much space.
    Now I wish for this even more after seeing it in action!
    Thanks for sharing.
