Welcome to Week #24 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour. Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about a Journal Pen Caddy, so be sure to check that out.
This week I am out of town (unexpectedly) which makes it a great week for me to tell you about a product I currently use that many of you have asked me about…
Week 24: The Scrap ‘n Easel!
A friend of mine (hello Melissa!) at one of my local crapping events brought out one of these bad boys to use while working on one of her projects. While it really doesn’t look like much in the picture, I knew I had to have one right away!
First off, the Scrap’n Easel is a portable work surface that allows flexibility when creating projects. I can leave it on my work desk or easily pack it up to take to a Paper Crafting Crop or Retreat. It can easily be folded down and is designed ergonomically to take away the aches and pains associated with leaning uncomfortably over your projects… which makes it part of a perfect solution for me since I currently have a bulging disc in my neck – Owie!
I love that I am able to work across two 12×12 inch surfaces. Perfect for making a double page layout. There are even removable grid lines, but I always just keep mine in place.
The Scrap ‘n Easel also comes with a dozen (or so) magnets and a 12 inch flexible, magnetic ruler. The ruler has become my go-to for any type of measuring I do. A quick tip on the magnets, though… I like to cover mine with washi tape so that magnet dust residue doesn’t accumulate on my projects after lots of use.
Think you might need one of these? I do TOO! It’s a game changer! So here is the information for you to check out…
If you have any questions about this awesome product, just let me know. I’ll do my best to help answer your those for you.
