Organize your Stuff: Week 10(round 5): Alphas


How do you store your alphas?

We just keep ours piled on a shelf. OCD Me finds this totally unacceptable. PA Me says “look, they are on a shelf! What more do you want?!” The Inner Hoarder keeps buying more Thickers. Oooh, Thickers. And Creative Me keeps using them.


Therefore, while the POW secretly sides with OCD Me, she has also seen out scraproom as a whole. There is just not space for it at this time. So we will keep that in the back of our mind (and possibly whisper to the Inner Hoarder that she really wants one).

While all this was going on, Creative Me looked at our alphas and of course saw a crafting opportunity. This is the layout that she created from the trip that we took to Las Vegas. It may have been quick, it may have been business, but we still had fun!

Papers: CTMH solids, slide, stamps; Graphics 45 paper; Cricut Destinations die cut; Thickers, Fiskars boarder punch.

It is amazing that we were able to get any crafting done at all, with a crazy weekend of wrestling, Boy Scouts, basketball (yes, basketball season has started), and of course, making Oatmeal Butterscotch cookies to send off in a care package for Fabulous Spouse (who chipped a tooth today in the Humvee Convoy rollover simulator). 

He really needs a cookie!

My stickers like that are in a Jetmax drawer. I'm not a fan of them, but any other stickers I have get put away cos I'm not all about looking at something I can't organize within an inch of its life. Cute layout too!

Yikes! Hope FS is okay! He'll feel better after having some of those cookies. I know I would! :-) Great layout! Care to share your recipe for those cookies? Sounds yummy!

I have my letters in folder, and on hooks, but you know I never use them, lol.

Ouch on the tooth!

My letter stickers are stored in a legal folder sized file cabinet in my scraproom. It has two drawers with file folders. One drawer is literally just thickers, and the top drawer is all the other brands :)
Plus my larger 12x12 sheet of stickers like Sassafras, OA and Basic Grey are stored in a cropper hopper vertical paper storage holder with my patterned paper.
I think I am a letter sticker addict :)

Looks like the organizing is going well! Cute layout!

That definitely looks like my mess of alpha stickers as well! I don't have a good solution either. Just started following you in Google Reader! Thanks for the comment on my blog! :)

My thickers are in a JetMax drawer. All my other aphas stickers are in a separate drawer. I may need to devote another drawers to thickers, as I have a serious addiction to them.
Love your Vegas layout.

My alphas are in a tray under my work table and my "less faves" in a sterilite drawer. You layout is cute...love that Vegas die cut!

Pamela said...

My alphabets are just in a big basket. Your layout looks great! :)

I love me some Thickers too! I can't stop buying them and just have them in a ziploc bag (which doesn't fit). Fellow Pea stopping by. :)

After sports simulators offered at the SportsEntertainmentSpecialists websites and other similar sites, soon enough we'll be seeing more innovations!
