My version of a Clip It Up

I have searched high and low over the internet and have found many homemade versions of the Clip It Up using lamp shade parts, paper clips, curtain rods and all other sorts of stuff.  Now I will admit I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my craft studio in that I want things to look nice.  So while I loved what I was finding out there, I wanted something functional and good looking at the same time.

Ikea is everything functional and good looking!  I could spend my whole day wandering the showroom floor.  Oh, the things I would buy if I had the money (and the room!)  LOL

My version of the Clip It Up is made using a Bygel rail and Bygel s-hooks.  I’ve used the longer of the two Bygel rails and started out with 5 packs of 10 hooks but it wasn’t enough to hold everything, so for now I’m doubled up on some things :)  I think I could fit another 50 hooks on the rod and still be able to move things around enough to be able to see what I’ve got.


My Clip It Up is more of a Hang It Up :)  I have it nestled between two 2×4 Expedit bookcases (another FAVE Ikea product).  It looks empty in this picture, but it’s not anymore!  I have plans for two more of these units.  Once I get them then I can finish setting up my studio the way I want it and I’ll take more pictures then :)


Thanks for stopping by today.  I have a couple cards on the DRS Designs blog today so check them out HERE.  Talk with you soon!


CAS32 – Wedding Theme

Good morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend full of sunshine and breakfast in bed!  No breakfast in bed?  Me either, LOL!  I did however, manage to squeak out a few cards in between all my moving around and organizing in my new craft studio.

ETA:  I just listed a *ton* of cards into my Etsy shoppe.  If you are in the market for some greeting cards or a kite – have a looksie :)  Go HERE!

This weeks clean and simple challenge on Splitcoaststampers is a themed challenge – Weddings!  I have only one wedding themed stamp and I tried using it but it was *not* working, so I scrapped the card and went searching my stamps for something else that would work.  I was digging around in my Odd Bird Planet box and found Felicitations (Congratulations in French) – PERFECT!!

I’ve been in such a button mood lately – this card just about made itself.  There are 16 buttons on the card (I counted!) and it took a while to get them all threaded and lined up nicely on my card.  But so worth it – I love the way it turned out.  Very clean and simple!  :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
