Tip for Sticky Scissors

So if you're like me, and you cut a lot of sticky things (form tape for example) and your scissors are NOT non-stick, then you probably get sticky scissors for adhesive residue. Fortunately I've found a quick and easy clean up solution for those sticky scissors.



if you have Un-du (sticker, tape and label remover) for your scrapbooking then you're in a good shape.

Poor a little bit of Un-du onto a cotton ball and carefully rub your open scissors blades until the glue is removed and your scissors are working properly again. be sure not to cut yourself!

A great alternative (shared by my friend Tracey) if you can't find Un-du, try looking for Bestine Solvent & Thinner. Check your local craft and art supply store. Bestine is used as a rubber cement remover! You can get it in numerous sizes and its literally the same thing as Un-Du.

Give this tip a try and let me know how it worked for you!

Ikea Haul

Went to IKEA today and got some storage and crop solutions.

I saw this idea from someone who had taken a picture at a crop. its shelf inserts (meant for cabinets and holding dishes). I will be stacking my supplies under and on top of these little shelves to keep my scrappy supplies in my face during the crop and not in my bag where i forget about it or have to dig for it!

These are extra BYGEL rails (found in the kitchen section) and the baskets and cups/buckets that hang off of them. i already had some of these, but I went and got more for my ever impending scraproom.

In case you haven't seen how these rails are used, here how i plan to use them :D

I also got a shelf that i'm not sure where i'm gonna put it yet, but i love it! storage in and on top (picture courtesy of ikea.com) :D

Thanks for stopping by!
