Hey everyone, and welcome!!
Show us your desk. How do you have things set up, and why?
Copics...need them, love them, got to HAVE them! I have them arranged in a cabinet I bought on Overstock.com for $20. I remember Jodi alerting me to their existence, and location, but I don't Remember where SHE saw it. Unfortunately/Fortunately(mixed emotions here), I am about out of space and have had to combine color families. When I have a bigger space, and more money, I will upgrade, but for now...this works for me!! I have a mixture of both Ciao and Sketch...one day, I hope to have all Sketch, but for now, I am content!!
To help me match marker colors to paper colors, I use this Copic Color Chart, I downloaded and filled in with the colors I own...I'm almost there!!
And what are markers without STAMPS!! I have an old crate style CD holder sitting upright on my desk holding all the current releases for the companies I work for. I like putting them in CD cases, and labeling them for easy access.
For my workspace, I work directly on top of my Scor Pal. I bought the mat for it, and it is PERFECT for a sturdy work surface, although, I don't recommend stamping your images on it. They tend to bow a little, so you don't get a crisp image.
I just got a new paper cutter from Fiskars, purchased at Michael's. I LOVE the larger work surface on it!! My dream is to one day have a table top, guillotine style paper cutter, but until I have a larger work space, this is PERFECT!!
My newest toy is the Scor Buddy, and I am in LOVE!! I leave it on the shelf, with my Cuttlebug, and pull it down whenever I want to score something. Otherwise, I have to clean off my work mat, move the mat, score, blah blah blah. This way is MUCH easier, and creates a perfect fold.
Up next, my Cuttlebug. I dream of one day having a better die cutting machine, with a larger work surface, but for now, I will keep cranking away at my old and trusty Bug!! I picture my Xyron with it for a VERY specific reason....it's my secret weapon! Well, I am sure everyone else has probably figured it out, but I use that handy dandy little guy to turn my Border Die-namics into stickers....they stick SO much better this way!!
Pampered Chef is the maker of my Tool Turn-a-bout, and I LOVE it. It holds ALL my favorite goodies...ruler, sander, adhesive remover, hand held punches, bone folder, MY PAPER PIERCER(lol), crystal effects, scissors, and SO much more. These are the tools I turn to EVERY day, so they are ESSENTIAL to have open, and ready to rock!
Without this basket, I would be LOST! It holds ALL the things I need the most: my Memento ink pads, my adhesives(TomBow, Glue Dots, Red Line Tape, and Dimensionals), spiral clips and my trusty silver brads, and my paper piercing mat and guide. LOVE THESE!!
