Gadget Gal's new toy - Clip-It-Up

I have to admit that I am a bit of a gadget gal. Tell me something will improve my scrapping, or make me stand out in the scrapping crowd - and I just have to have it. Sales Rep's rub their hands together when they see me coming, lol. You name it, and I probably have it!!

I started scrapping with Creative Memories - dont ask me how many of their tools and templates, and the like I have, and then I discovered the World Wide Web and the US scrapping sites. Every new thing I had to try and get. You really should see my cupboard: Fastenator and a gazillion staples for it; Phrase Maker and a bazillion labels for that; and the list goes on. However I wont bore you with too many more details, except to let you in on one of my better purchases.

After much discussion at the FORUM, I decided I needed to have the Clip It Up. This time, I did a bit of research to make sure that this was something I would use and not hide away.

I used to store my alpha stickers (A4 size and smaller) in one of those plastic 4 drawer thingy's - well 2 actually, and my rub ons in plastic sleeves in an A4 folder - well 2 of those as well.

Not that successful cos I could never find anything when I needed it, and then I forgot that I had a particular rub on, one I could have used on my previous layout - but isnt that always the way.

Anyway, I digress.

I bit the bullet and placed an order with Marg at CPC, an lo and behold, in super quick express post time, lol, I had my new toy:

Wow, base unit, top tier, and a cover. And it is so huge.
I just had to wait for Daz to go out, and lucky for me he obliged, so I could set it up.

It was a bit of a struggle, putting it together, but once I read the instructions with my glasses on, lol, it went together nicely.

The boys were amazed with this huge contraption that was taking up a mountain of space on my scrapping desk, they couldnt decide if I really needed it or not - that was until I started emptying the various receptacles for my alphas and rub ons. What a stash.

It was then that they decided I should have bought 2!! Cheeky little brats :)

Anyway, it will be a while before my new gadget is set up fully cos I am waiting for my new scraproom to be finished - well, to be started actually - so I can place her permanently on display. But here is a sneak peek of what she is like now:

Isnt she just the bees knees???

Anyway, I think you should all go out and purchase one of these beauties. I know my scrapping life will soon be so much easier.

Take care
TD xoxo

Totally worth it, I love mine and think every scrapper should have one! i've been using "stuff" that I'd forgotten I had...She has been put away for the time being though as she takes up too much space on my 60cmx60cm space :( Although, she is only in the wardrobe LOL so we still talk to each other often :) Lis xx
