Washi Tape Dispenser Review by Sharon, and Show Us ***YOUR*** Happy Place-Week 3!

Happyplacegraphic

Welcome to Week 3 of our “Show Us Your Happy Place” promotion!

Here is a great product review by Sharon. 🙂

Hi everyone, it’s Sharon here today to share with you my product review from Recollections.  I was sent one Washi Tape Dispenser set and a pack of Crafting Tape to try.

washi1

Firstly, I like the white finish of the dispenser. I have mostly white furniture in my craft room, and this will sit on my desk next to my white rotating carousel unit, so it fits in perfectly. You could very easily paint this to tie in with your colour scheme though if you wanted to. However, the thing that I like most about this unit is the fact that you can add to it. There are holes at the top and bottom so that you can slot another unit on top as your collection grows – and as they stack on top of each other, the unit wouldn’t take up any more desk space. I’ve made the mistake before of buying storage solutions that I’ve outgrown and had to totally replace with something different, so this is a huge plus for me.

I don’t actually have a huge collection of washi tape yet, (but I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m buying another one of these as I am seeing a lot of nice washi tape projects at the moment). Here’s how the unit looks now I’ve filled it up – as you can see, I can probably get another 3 or 4 rolls on before I need to get another unit.   I really love the bright, zingy colours of the Recollections washi tape and I already have plans to use some of this to liven up my planner pages.

I’m really impressed with this tape storage, and will definitely be adding to it as my collection of tapes grows.

Now, since you’ve read the review by our fantastic Sharon, you can link up YOUR happy place at the bottom of the post from now until Thursday afternoon (October 23). The winner for this week will receive an identical washi tape dispenser & crafting tape set of their very own!

Now for a great product review!

 

This is Cicily, the Pink Dalmatian Scrapper and I’m super excited to be kicking off this October with a review of the Silhouette Chalkboard vinyl! I’ve been wanting to get my hand on some, so this was perfect.

It works just like regular vinyl in your cutting machine. I chose to make labels for some of my storage boxes.

PicMonkey Collage

 

I measured my boxes (the Walmart plastic shoe-boxes for $1) and adjusted the size of the label to fit. I set the depth on my cutting blade to cut just the vinyl, not the backing. After the labels were cut, I removed all the excess vinyl around my labels so I could see what I was working with. I could never find anywhere that says you need to condition chalkboard vinyl, but I know for chalkboard paint you need to condition it. To condition you just take the side of your chalk and run it over the vinyl. Then wipe off. What I read was that your images can become permanent if you don’t condition the chaklboard. Again not sure if this is needed with vinyl, but I also got the “used” chalkboard look once I wiped them off. Next I took a chalkboard pen and inked a border around the labels to give them a little pizzazz.

A great tip I’ve come across was to sharpen your chalk! Just use a pencil sharpener and you have an easier tip to write with. Warning…can cause nails on a chalkboard chills!

I love how the chalkboard vinyl labels turned out. The chalkboard vinyl was extremely easy to use and can have so many uses. Now check out what CSI has in store this month!

Now, since you’ve read the review by the fabulous Cicily, you can link up YOUR happy place at the bottom of the post from now until Thursday afternoon (October 9, 2014). The winner for this week will receive a 12″ roll of CHALKBOARD vinyl from Silhouette America like the one that is being reviewed here today!

Something’s Coming…. Something BIG!

Hi friends! I am so soooooo excited to announce today the FUN things we have planned for CSI for the ENTIRE month of October! *squeak* it’s so thrilling!!! 🙂

We are launching a month long promotion called “Show Us Your Happy Place!” We want to see YOUR awesome craft rooms, art studios, photography spaces, sewing rooms, and MORE! Your room does not have to be a traditional “craft room” OR considered “magazine worthy” to enter any of the 4 week-long contests we are running this month, we are looking for REAL rooms that feature creative and unique storage ideas.

Happyplacegraphic

 

So, here’s how it works:

Every Monday in October one of our Contributors will review a FABULOUS craft storage related product they have received. At the bottom of the post will be an InLinkz button where you can link us to your blog and show us YOUR room. You will be able to add your space to InLinkz until Thursday at noon (Mountain Time Zone).

Then (beginning a week from this Friday) on Friday mornings in October, we will announce the weekly winner. They will WIN the same product reviewed by our Contributor Team on Monday of that same week. We will also feature their space on that post and what our favorite things were about their room!

So, on Monday, October 6, we will begin our first link party. If you haven’t ever posted about your space on your blog, NOW is the time to get that done! You will have 4 chances to enter your space to win a prize in October.

So, maybe you’re feeling sad because you don’t have a space to share? Or a blog to feature your room on? GUESS WHAT? There’s still opportunities for you to WIN PRIZES every Wednesday.

Yes, every Wednesday in October we will be featuring RANDOM DRAWING GIVEAWAYS as well!

We will actually do our FIRST random winner giveaway this FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3 to kick off this fun party month here at Craft Storage Ideas! The winner will be announced Monday, along with our first review and link up.

We are hoping, wishing, and have our fingers crossed that you will Show Us Your Happy Place in October! 🙂
