Clip It Up-Shoerack Style!

 Hi Friends! I wanted to share with you an inexpensive, quick and easy way to make yourself a Clip It Up!  This was inspired by a post on the blog Golden Moments.
I purchased a Three Tier Revolving Shoe Rack from Bed Bath and Beyond for $24.99
(after using a 20% coupon).

Assembly was super easy. I only used 2 of the 3 tiers as I wanted mine to be table top and I felt the 3 tiers was a bit tall as a table top style. The base is surprisingly weighted and feels very sturdy overall.  I used the long post on top for all those long packaged embellies!
Also if you notice the original one had the basket snipped off. I chose to leave it on for additional storage. Plus it keeps the items neatly divided.

 I purchased a box of mini clips and paperclips that were on clearance at Target! I love a good bargain!
I then slipped one side of  the mini clip over paperclip and looped it over basket portion of the shoe rack. And there you have it!

Thanks for the visit!  I hope you have fun saving some money making your own clip it up!

 Hi Folks! It has been way too long since I have scrapped. I have still been visiting blogs & galleries-just not scrapping. I think that is past & now have a renewed energy for it! I had to take a little break, however now I am happy to be back at it!
The inspiration for this layout is a photo of my son, Nick & daughter in law Stephanie taken in Maui. They work work work & have found that their place to refresh is Hawaii! They go every so often and just love the peace that Maui has to offer.
I used the Basic Grey Kioshi line of papers... the colors were perfect!

A Sizzix flourish was used to cut the flourishes. I still have my hand cranked Sizzix & no electronic cutting machine. I guess I am living in the Ice Age!!!

I made flowers using various dies & punches , inking the edges &  adding a drop of Scribbles for the centers. I also dotted the flourishes with the Scribbles.

Lastly, I stamped around the edges with Inkadinkado (whew I always type that wrong ) chandelier stamps-using the chain portion! It was just what I needed!

Thanks so much friends for visiting & hanging with me in my absence!
