I need your help!!!

Hiya. I need your help, please! I have a chance of getting a rack very similar to this one (above) but I'm completely befuddled as to what I would use it for. Go figure, eh? I can always come up w/ ideas when I DON'T have a certain storage unit but, when I get a chance to get one, my mind goes blank. LOL

Very similar to:- I can think of a whole bunch of things I want to buy at M's but, when I have a coupon in my hot li'l hands, I can't think of ONE thing that I want/need. LOL I guess it has something to do w/ "Murphy's Law", eh? LOL

Anyway, sorry for babbling on and on! Sooooo, if you had this "hot item" in your hands, what would you use it for??? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!

BTW, it won't fit the Cricut carts. (misses by 1/4") But I already have my other revolving stand for those!! :-)


  1. Linda, would cuttlebug folders fit? Or perhaps different color A2 cards (already made and even some blanks that are waiting their turn for your magic? Ribbon that you have wound on chipboard? Love the vertical, will save so much room. Spellbinders? That just off top of my noggin . Will keep thinking, sweetie. How is that Yorki-poo? We are taking ours back to the beach in April. They loved it in November.

  2. I agree with Wende! Great storage for Cuttlebug folders! If you like to display your cards (heaven forbid you actually mail or give them to someone... lol)
    I fear the cricut boxes would be too big, but could be fun for Spellbinders or any other block style dies.
    if you store anything in CD/DVD cases (acrylic stamp sets?) that would work well I think
    Also, if you have stickers or rub-ons that are in the cellophane/plastic bags that could work... as long as there is a bit of card inside. otherwise they may slump over and fall out.
    The small bolts of ribbon would probably fall right out but some of the larger ones would fit I think
    If I think of anything else I'll come back for a visit. :) Good luck!

  3. Hey v-sis! (that's short for virtual sister... lol!) I just measured my cricut box and it's 4 inches which means my first thought and that knocks the A2 cards (if those are 4 1/4 wide) out of the running. My guess is this is brochure size so we'll have to get really creative here, huh? Got any spare chipboard, or better yet do you save cereal and other types of food containers that you could cut to the right size? If you do here are a few suggestions:
    1. Wrap ribbon around your custom cut chipboard.
    2. Make some custom bags and/or boxes with clear fronts (you know, like those cookie boxes I made for Christmas (see the post at http://craftroomtransformation.blogspot.com/2010/12/finally-finished-christmas-goodies.html) then put embellies, scraps, flowers, whatevers in them.
    3. Last, but not least...give Bailey the ride of his life... you know, rig up some kind of a sling thingy so he's secure and well, you'd probably have to hang the rack from a ceiling hook or it'd fall over. What a cool merry-go-round! Maybe Bailey has some furry friends that could come balance it out?

    I can't wait to hear and see what you decide to do with it! Oh I can't remember if you still need more space for punches, but if you do how about putting the larger ones in the rack?

  4. OMG, you guys have come up w/ some excellent ideas. Thanks so much for sharing all of that w/ me. :-)

    Once I get it home (tomorrow) I can take a pic and get some actual measurements of the holders, to give you a better idea of what it's all about.

    I am getting soooooo excited about getting it, now!! And I think I may have a solution as to where to put it, too. Fingers crossed! :-)

    Thank you soooooooo much for all of your ideas!


  5. Oh wow how fun! My first thought was embossing folders also and a place to display my little works of art (cards or ATC's) before I sent them out. Also what about a place to keep your newly acquired purchases of rub-ons, bling, stickers, chipboard, transparencies, ect. so they are right out in view so you can see all your goodies and be able to use them. Or what about organizing your pictures (no I'm not that organized, lol wish I were) and put in those clear containers
    ( http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1T4DKUS_enUS262US263&q=creating+keepsakes+photo+pockets&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=1847033172385396356&ei=Dp9DTdW-BIO78gaLi9GYAg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=image&resnum=3&ved=0CCkQ8gIwAg# ) They are by Creating keepsakes and they hold 80, 5 x 7 photos. Then they would be right there at your fingertips and ready for you to scrap. Hope that helps a bit, can't wait to see what you do with it! Make sure you keep us posted!
    ((Hugs)) Theresa
    Oh, and Binky Said say Hi to Bailey!

  6. Oh My Gosh Linda. This is a tough question.
    I like the ideas so far.
    I would try to showcase cards I made.
    Cuttlebug folders, Bling, Photos.
    You could make it a Picture Showcase stand.
    Possible use it as a decorative element in your scraproom rather than a storage element.
    Let us know what you decide.
