I just got mine. It is lightweight, sturdy and very easy to put together. It's just plastic with a metal ring. It seems like it shouldn't cost as much as it does. Oh well, it's worth the price.
It reminds me of a miniature clothes rack. You hang your stickers, chipboard and other embellies on little hooks and then hang the hooks on the metal ring. It is such a simple idea, but oh what a space saver! I cannot believe how much this thing holds! Best of all, the goodies are right there at my fingertips. I'm an out of sight, out of mind person. Now, I'll see my stickers and, hopefully, they'll prompt me to make a layout to show them off.
Before buying one of these, I considered making my own. I found the instructions on another site and have seen photos of the homemade ones on this site. The Clip It Up metal ring is much sturdier than a lampshade ring. And while this is made from plastic, I believe the actual unit is sturdier than the homemade ones. (Look at some of the photos and notice how the rings tilt when they've got stuff on them.)
The down side to this unit is that it's not big enough for 12x12 paper. I'd like to see the company make another unit, maybe even a lower base unit, that is big enough for 13x13 bags with 12x12 paper or kits.

Even though it has been around for a while I recently purchased the Clip it up Base Unit.
Let me tell you I do not know how I (or anyone) got along without this.
First of all I thought it was pretty expensive, but when looking around at other organizational options it is lower in price then other things. Also it is one or two pieces instead of a whole bunch of a set.
Second it is soooooooo easy to put together, I am bad at that stuff and I did it with complete ease.
Third you can literally clip up anything, the clips are strong and there is so much room, it is such a space saver! I fit all of my embellishments and stickers and chipboard on there, my stuff that took up a huge toolbox fit (with room still!) on my clip it up and I just have the base unit.
Fourth it is a huge space saver, I know I said that but let me explain. All my stuff was in storage tubs and in a big tool box and all over my desks. Now it is all clipped up and in a corner of my desk. I have so much more floor and desk space. Plus it saves in clean up time, I don't have to spend ten minutes putting everything back in its specific tub or drawer, it just gets clipped back up!
I now the idea of spinning it around to find what you want seems like a great idea but let me tell you it isn't just a great idea it is a truly great product.
This is a really nice product. It is slightly larger (taller) than I expected, especially with the additional top-piece --- but that is a great thing. It can hold much more than I expected. The top piece is great for smaller things. I grouped my small stuff like my inks and things in sandwhich baggies and they fit great. The bottom larger piece is about 15" tall and great for all those long packs of things like 12" borders and things, or the long packs of stickers, alphas, doodles, rub-ons, etc. It seems a little pricey for the few simple pieces that come in the box to be put together.. but I think the design is genius and the price was worth it. The clips are nice little metal clips that really grab and they have a convenient little hook to take them easily on and off the ring. It rotates easily and the best things is that practically everything I have fit on it! I will probably be buying more clips (even though I have a LOT that came with it) so I can squeeze as much as I can onto it (because I still have a lil room!) and because it is SO convenient having everything within reach. It sits it the corner on my desktop looking like I am open and ready for business. Woohoo!
it is everything that everyone else is saying and more. the only down side is the storage bags. i have a lot of stickers. most of them were still in the orginal packaging so i just clip them up without having to use the storage bags. michael's sells bags in 2"x3", 3"x5",and 4"x6", for less that $3 for 175 bags in each size. They close at the top (no slider), so i just put a hold at the top using a hold puncher. This makes it easier to clip them up. i still need the 5"x5" and 7"x7". The 10x10 is too large for me. i order the first bags from scrapbooking warehouse and you get (small bag) with two 2.25"x 3.25", and two 5" x 5" for $5.88 on sale. large bag two 7" x 7" and two 10" x 10" for $7.88 on sale. that is pricy.
If you find the side that i need or something close to it without having to order a 1000 or more bags please let me know.
hope this was helpful
loving my clip it up!
Just got the Clip It Up base unit from Simply Renee in the mail. Couldnīt wait to get started organizing all my stuff. At first I thought that I didnīt have enough stuff to put on the Clip It Up - boy was I wrong!
Started to look through all my stuff - even found some I didnīt knew I had - and when putting it on the unit I realized that I might even run out of space.
I now have a complete overview of all my stuff and it is so easy to spin the Clip It Up around to find what I need.
I only have one concern about the product and it is a very small concern. I wonder when I have to take the unit with me (for crops and other things) will the rings come off the unit. I donīt know if it will be a problem, but a clip to hold the rings on to the unit would have been nice I think.
This is without doubt a 5 star product I think and I would recommend it to others any time.

This is the best thing since sliced bread...okay, maybe since Cat's Eye! This is ingenious...right up there with the Cropadile!
It was a breeze to asemble and I love how it spins. I foudn things I didn't even realize I had while I was putting my goodies on. I don't know how I functioned without this tool! The clips are strong enough to hold just about anything, and the handle makes it really convenient to take along with me. It is much bigger than I realized, so I was able to put much more on it that I had planned.
I also purchased the top tier, an extra bag of clips and the large & small extra envelopes because I thought I would fill up the bottom tier (remember it is bigger than i realized). I did use both tiers, but I could have fit everything on the bottom. I recommend buying 2 bags of additional clips and one box of the large & small envelopes.
Ok, so this base is on sale right now at Scrapbook.com, so it is a great time to buy and then, I had $10 that I had won, so I knew the time was right to give myself something I have wanted for a long time!
It is very easy to put together. I usually wait for my husband to put things together for me, but I did this myself, easy to follow instructions, goes together in minutes.
The clips that come with it are very strong. They can hold a very heavy piece. It has dividers with stickers so you can divide however you like.
I like to buy those 12" long Queen & Co felt titles and they fit right on there without touching the bottom I like that.
So, the next time all the Croppin' Chicks are over for a Crop I know they are going to see this and want one. I love it when I am the first person to get something new! LOL!

Instead, I kept thinking how expensive it was. I finally broke down and spent the money after I received a gift certificate that I could also apply to the cost. After receiving it I found that I have so many supplies to put on it that I needed to order the upper tier as well. Since purchasing this item I have found that the cost is minimal - I can locate all my products that are now well organized and I am using things that had been buried in boxes and corners of my scraproom.
This product actually is now saving me money because I can see what I own and use it! I no longer end up with duplicate items. So, I highly recommend that you 'splurge' on the Clip It Up! In fact, buy both pieces and save the cost of shipping the upper tier separately! I just LOVE mine!
Wow, not sure how I scrapped without my Clip It Up all this time. I've had it for three days now and I'm already reaping the benefits.
It holds way more scrappy goodies that you would think and is so well designed that it doesn't take up as much space either.
With everything from my bulky SEI embellie packages to my Thickers (all of them) hanging on it now, I've opened up three of my storage cubes and have been able to utilize that new found space as well.
I now don't spend all my precious time searching through my cubes looking for what I thought I wanted; only to find something I forgot I had resulting in changing the entire design of my project and wasting more precious time!
I love this and it is so worth the price!
From the very first time I saw this I new I had to have it! I have spent HOURS going through my embelishments, die cuts, stickers, etc. trying to find just one thing. I had my stuff in piles, drawers, binders, shelves, you name it and could never find what I was looking for. This has saved me so much time, just a quick spin and it's right at my finger tips. It also allowed me to see all that I actually have (which is way too much), but it helps me on ideas for my layouts. I have both the base unit and the upper tier with an additional package of clips. My husband says it looks like I am ready to open up my shop! The clips securely hold your items and hook to the round bar. I might just have to get a second one!
I really don't! This is absolutely TERRIFIC! I have SOOOO MUCH stuff on there!
When I opened it and saw all the clips it came with, I thought to myself, there is NO way I'm going to be able to use all of these clips! As a matter of fact, not ONLY did I use the one's that came with it (LOTS by the way), I ordered 50 more, and it holds up SOOO WELL! It will fill up with these 50... It's not full yet, and I've already added 25 more! Get the picture?
I was able to pull things out of drawers, forgetting I even had them! I'm so glad I was able to get one of these!
You won't regret it! Another thing, it's soooooO EASY to assemble! It's really NOTHING! And I'm not mechanically inclined, if you will. LOL.

I had been looking for how to store my clear stamps for AGES. I wanted something that would let me organize them by category and have great access. I also didnt want to have to repackage all my stamps.
This is PERFECT. I just clip it up in the original packaging.
I love this so much I got the top layer to store those fun new Studio G clear stamps. It is so perfect I can see my whole collection in a spin and I even included my foam stamps as I had soooo much room.
The company is VERY generous in the number of clips it provides too -- I bought extra but still havent had to use them.
I highly recommend this product!
I hesitated about this item because it was a bit costly and it seemed a bit big. But the price was worth it - I love this item. I had drawers full of things that were too big to keep in smaller places. Now they are all hung up and I can find them quickly. I don't really have a scrap room so I have to pull everything out and put it back when I am done. This holds a lot of items and is easy to take out and put back. I can't wait to get the top tier. This is good for bigger items such as pages of stickers and rub ons and smaller embellishments that you can put in bags and clip up. I would recommend this item.
I recently treated myself to this awesome product. I love everything about it. I used to keep my rubons/stickers, etc. in labeled photo boxes. Being an at home and on the road scrapper, that wasn't always the best way...the photo boxes were too cumbersome to bring along to a crop. I love that this can travel with me and has a cover to keep everything protected while I am on the road. I have begun to use so much more of my on hand stock since I purchased this, which is great because it makes room for new fun stuff!!! and I can also see things that I previously forgot I owned!

I can't say enough good things about the Clip It Up storage system. I don't know how I ever got along without it! It makes all of your embellishments so easily accessible. And, I so often forget what all different supplies I have on hand, so this keeps everything in sight. It saves me all the time I used to spend searching for that embellishment that I could have sworn I remembered buying. And, I really like the label tabs that go at the top of the rack. They make for even more specific organization. I would recommend this product to ANYONE!
This product solved the problem of all my embelishments being in drawers. I always had to route through drawers and containers, but now I just turn the wheel and look for the category I want. I was surprised by the size; however, it is worth it to be organized and everything at your fingertips. It's very, very convenient. I bought the cover and have also traveled with it and there were no problems. I would highly recommend this product if you want to view your embelishments quickly and at a glance. I love this product!
OK I too was one of the people that just used my creative mind and made my own version of the Clip It Up.
One I thought after seeing it in some galleries it was gynormous
Two the price I was so not feeling. But finally I caved and and got me one to go in my new scrap room because nothing but the best can enter. I absolutely love it. I THOUGHT I was organized until now. I knew where things were but the Clip It Up shed light on things I guess I forgot I had. I am even contemplating the upper tier in the near future.

Love Love Love this product. I have the top and the bottom and it is full of nothing but rub-ons, crazy but I am a rub-on crazy scrapper and this product made it so much easier for me to see what I have. The labels are a great size, the clips are easy to fasten to your items, once it is full it turns with ease. I am planning on getting another one for all my other embellishments. I highly recommend this product. I hope this is helpful and Happy Scrappin
The base unit together with the top unit have really made a difference in my studio. I have any number of jewelry projects going on at once, as well as supplies for my students. This unit has replaced MANY storage containers that were tucked away in drawers and shelves, and not very accessible. Now all these items are in clear plastic baggies and I can see them all at a glance. What a timesaver not to mention a good way to avoid duplicate supply orders.
This is an excellent organizational tool! I only have room in my studio for one, but I'd like to reorganize to make room for more. This is, for me, far better than the binders I've used for years to hold stickers and other embellishments. It's much faster & easier to flip through what's hanging there. It also keeps my goodies out where I can see them better, making them more likely to be used. I highly recommend this product!
I have tried MANY different storage systems and organizers in my craft room and it took me awhile to figure out one important thing: if I can't SEE my products and embellishments, I don't USE them. Clip It Up finally solved my problem. I bought the 2 tier unit at CKC Valley Forge and will soon buy a second one. Thank you, thank you Simply Renee for a fantastic, easy to use organizer! I highly recommend this product.
I have been so impressed with the Clip It Up by Simply Renee. I love how I can put my alpha stickers, bling, journaling tags, and all my other embellies right on it. It spins so that I can see everything and it's all within reach. It takes up so much room and I don't have to go digging through all my products to find what I'm looking for. This is a product that I don't know what I would do without!
This is such a great product! Before all my stickers, rub ons etc were in a paper sorter and I did not use them as much...now that they are out and in plain sight I think to use them more!!!
I have the filing tabs as well which is great because you can divide your supplies up by category! You can also purchase small bags to put loose objects in and clip them up as well!

I purchased this product the minute I saw it. The only problem I found was there was not enough storage sleeves -- being the person who will figure something out in a crunch situation -- I used my foodsaver and zip lock bags. I really enjoyed reorganzing my stickers, embellishments, etc. and now I can find everything without going on a long search though my boxes. THANKS.
I love my clip it up. I can now quickly find my stickers and other embellies. They remain in pristine condition and aren't squished in a box. I save money since I haven't bought dublicate stickers. If I tried to make one myself it would cost far more in terms of hours spent shopping and constructing. I am considering a second clip it up as my friends take theirs to retreats.

This is the best product. I am not only more organized but now I am actually using what I have purchased!! I am a very visual person, and I need to see it and feel it - therefore having my rub-ons and 3D embellies at my finger tips has helped me be more creative. This is a great space saver and better yet, if you can actually SEE what you have, you will be more apt to USE it.
I purchased this item because I needed something to organized all of my wonderful do-dads for scrapbooking. This is wonderful. I have found new items I totally forgot about. The only thing that I would say negative is that it is large and you will sacrifice counter space for this item but for me it's well worth the space. I don't believe there is anything out there better.
I love the base unit and the top unit. I've had mine for a couple of weeks and I am thinking about ordering a 2nd top and bottom unit. This is great for those things you usually put in drawers and boxes. They are not out where I can see them and no longer out of sight out of mind. I use it for brass stencils and small packaged items.
I love this product.
I have always had trouble organizing my embellishments and have tried storing them in drawers, and baskets etc without much success. This product has allowed me to free up floor space and get my embellishments organized in a manner that allows me to see them and therefor use them. I now have the base unit with the upper tier and 2 mini units. Love it!

this has quickly become one of my favorite organizing items. definately worth the price and in the long run it will probably even save you some money because you'll actually use the supplies you have because you'll see them out in the open, right? you really couldn't ask for more. if you can afford it, buy the top tier too. it is also wonderful.
I just purchased both the top and bottom pieces. I could have saved so much money over the years on plastic bins and plastic storage drawers. I could've put the money toward the storage units, instead. I imagine I would have had money left over for addtional accessories from this product line for sure. I only wish I knew about these sooner.
I had my stickers and other small items in the Cropper Hopper Sticker Envelopes. They were great and kept me organized, but I would forget what I had. When I had the opportunity to order the Clip-it-up I jumped on it. I found stuff I forgot I had and am still in the process of filling it up. Be sure to order extra clips and tabs.
I got the base unit, the top unit with extra clips and the cover for Christmas and was so delighted with the ease of putting it together and now I can actuallly "see" everything that I have and love that everything is right at my fingertips. I was amazed at how much it holds and would highly recommend the "Clip-it-Up"!

I had one of the sticker binders and HATED having to drag it out. I love that this makes it so easy to find things, though it does take up a bit of room - no more than the old binder did.
Downside? I need more clips! Also, I had to go to manufacturer's site to order the envelopes and have never gotten them!
I recently purchased the "Clip it up"...and I don't know why I didn't buy it sooner! It is fantastic! It holds so many of my embellishments and spins around so easily! I can see what I had forgotten I had. Before everything was in drawers..now they're right at my finger tips! It's great and I love this product!

I've had my clip it up for 3 years now. I dont know how I lived w/o one. I can see everything, its very organized. I get so many comments on it from friends. Its probably the one piece I could never live w/o. I even take it to all my scrapbooking retreats and everyone ewww and awwwws over it. Get one today!
I was so tired of trying to find things, so I bit the bullet and spent the money on the base unit as well as the upper unit. I didn't realize I had half of the items I had until I got them organized and in one place!! This truly is one of the best purchases I have made in my "scrapbooking adventure"!
I purchased the base and upper tier together and just love it. It was super easy to put together. It is an excellent idea- everything can be viewed and accessed. The clips are strong enough to hold heavier items and do not slip off the revolving rings. All up A++++ will be back for another set soon.
I really love the clip it up. It works great for thickers, cardstock stickers and many more items. I love that you can see everything at a glance and that you can remove the product you want to use and then clip it back on. I like that you can make label to separate the items. Great invention.

I just got the Clip it UP this week and spent the night organizing all my embellies that were "lost" in my scrap drawers.
I absolutley love it and have ordered the top tower to expand it.
It is VERY sturdy and wel made.
Hopefully it will motivate me to use my long lost "hanging" items.
I am a visual person so this product is perfect for me. While hanging my products I found many I forgot I owned!! I expect to be using a lot more of my stash now. The only negative thing about this product is that it
Is quite large so it takes up a lot of desk space.
I can finally see what I own. This assembles very easily and holds a suprising amount of packages.
I also purchased the upper tier add-on. My long packet fit on the bottom, the shorter on top.
While it comes with a generous number of clips, I did need extra packages.
This is my favorite scrapbooking item. All my embelishments are in full sight--no more searching through boxes and drawers. Takes no time at all to find just the right embelishment. When setting up my Clip It Up, I found things I didn't know I had. Great item!!!
This is amazing & so great for finding stuff. I started hanging all my little goodies last night. Now I don't have to dig through piles of stickers/chipboard. All I have to do is spin it and around and everything is right at my fingertips. I love this!!
Great product! I do not have enough space for my scrapbook products and this base unit help me a lot. I was a little disappointed with the hooks because some of them came deffective and some clips without the hooks. But overall it is a life save for me.
I absolutely love this!! My stickers used to be just thrown into a drawer without any sign of organization. Now I have them hung up and divided. It's soooo incredibly easy for my to find exactly what I'm looking for. Not to mention, it saves me time.
I wanted one for probably more than a year. I saw everyone's imitations but my resources and creativity are limited, plus I don't want anything on the wall. This is good quality and spins easy. The fact that you can build onto it makes it even better.

Don't know how I've lived without this item. I sell cards and this is wonderful for display plus I've added embellishments to keep it steady. Great invention. I expecially like this mini size of the original. Original was too big for my needs and space.
I am all about anything that keeps me organized and for stickers, brads, acrylic stamps, chipboard, just about anything it works. I have 2 base units and one upper tier. And I love it! It is also protable so you can take it to crops with you.

I ordered the base unit and the upper tier, so now instead of having drawers full of stickers that were all jumbled together I now have them all at my fingertips, and can easily find what I am looking for. I also now know what I actually have!
Very high quality product and easy to put together. Did not realize it would be so tall (18") Maybe it wasn't listed in the product description? The clips are easy to attach also. I'm glad I purchased extra clips.
This organizational tool by Simply Renee is out of this world! You will not believe how many embellishments you can fit on this mama. I am in love! Don't forget to purchase the top part as well. It is awesome. :)
I love it,best thing I have ever purchased for storage.You can see every thing with ease.Great for retreats as you don't waste time looking through boxes,folders etc.I would like one to hang all my clear stamps on.
I was impressed that it came with 80 clips. That was way more than I was expecting it to have. I feel more organized. I can't wait to get the top piece so that I can fit more goodies in one organized place.
You really do use what you have with this product. I have the full unit as well as the ribbon organizer and a few under cabinet bars. I love this product, without it my stuff would be all over the place.
Whoever invented this product is a genius. Finally a solution to keeping my scrapbook supplies organized. And can I just say that the directions to putting it together were super simple. I just love it!
I like this. It is finally easy to find my stickers, etc. The only down side is that it does not travel well. I don't take it to crops,l etc. But overall it is a good purchase that I am happy with.
excellant to hold all your motifs on..also going to hang my solution carts on the bottom tier.....can keep book,overlay and cart all in a bag and then you see where the cart is........ easy to use...
So nice to be able to easily sort and find your embellishments! Holds tons of treasures and keeps them handy. Much better then putting them in drawers or boxes and forgeting what you have.
This is a truly great product, I love it. I just wish I had thought of it first! It is very lightweight but sturdy and does exactly what it said it would do. Just remember to buy more clips.
I love the clip it up range so much that I've just bought a second unit. You can see everything in one easy twirl and I'm using things that I've had a long time and had forgotten about
I love my Clip It Up. I can now flip through my accents and accessories and not forget what I have because it is stuffed in a drawer somewhere. Comes with a ton of clips.
Wow! I wish I knew about this a long time ago. I'm using all of my embellishments now! I'd forgotten a lot of which I owned! It's a must have! Nancy from Caledonia
I thought I was organized before this. What used to take up two drawers, accordian file, bucket and multiple page organizers has been reduced to 15" of space. Wow!
I waited a long time before buying this, and even attempted a home-made version that didn't turn out so well because the price really threw me off. That said, 2 months after buying this, I don't regret it for a second! I would recommend this to anyone who, like me, forgets they have supplies they can't see.
The unit turns well when it is filled up evenly, and it is about as sturdy as it needs to be.
As much as I like this product, it does have a few drawbacks:
- The clips are hard to lift off the frame
- The price is a little excessive for what is really just a plastic base and metal ring
- It takes up a lot of room on the desk top and needs a couple inches clearance to turn it (I would suggest storing it on an end table or something)
- It's not very portable (not an issue for me, but it could be for others)
- Honestly, I think it's really ugly. I know that doesn't really matter, but it isn't at all pretty unless all of your product packaging matches, and stays in perfect condition (yes, I realise that's an issue with any visible storage).
I am really happy that I bought the Clip It Up; it eliminated my stacks of plastic shoeboxes and buckets a lot of my stuff was in and I actually end up putting things back after I take them out now (which was a serious issue for me, trust me). I'm even thinking about getting the second tier... :)
I was intrigued by this when I first read about it when it was introduced at CHA way back. After reading the reviews here I decided to go ahead and try it, and so far bought the base only. It came yesterday and I sat in front of the TV all night clipping up rubons and journal spots and phrases and stickers and you name it!! And I still have loads of room! It's lightweight and can easily be lifted from one place to another for working. I wish only that I could adjust the height on it, I don't have anything on it that is 12" and don't need it to be quite that tall, but that is minor. The thing is AWESOME for keeping everything out where you can see it, and you can categorize everything with the enclosed stickers and tabs. I bet I get the top before too long!!! Amazaing amount of storage in a small place.
I used to have all my dimensional embellishments stored in a Paper Sticker Binder. But I would forget what I had because I couldn't see them! So I got one of these, hoping it would solve that problem. It did!! I got everything out of my binder and onto the clips, with room to spare. And the first time I scapped after that, I used not one, but TWO items that had been languishing for over a year. So it really did get my stuff out of storage and onto a page.
There is one thing I didn't like . . . The "envelopes" it comes with aren't really envelopes. They're really small boxes, about 3/4" wide. I just used various sized zip-lock bags, and they work great for me. I'm not sure what to do with the "envelopes".
This product is easy to assemble and I have found it a fantastic way to keep products organized and close at hand. Only down side is it is much larger than expected~ it has some height to it (with both tiers) and I have had to be careful how to balance the items hanging on it so it doesn't wabble or get lop sided. I thought I would hang my sticker strips but found I wanted to use it to keep more things that I use more often. Also, I like to place items in a ziplock bag if I no longer have the container it came in.

i just got my clip it up today and was so anxious to get it put together and get my stuff on it. I think it is an awesome product but I am only giving it 4 stars because of the price to quality ratio. For $60 I expected the peices to all be metal and not plastic. The instructions warn you that over tightening can break the threads and that could be bipassed if the pole was made of metal. Just my 2 cents. I'm happy with it, and will most likely buy the top tier next time I do an order.
Now I can get rid of my sticker albums. I save lots of time with not having to refile my embellishments after pulling them out of my sticker album. I have grouped all of my similar items together and it saves so much time! I love it.
Like most higher priced items I wanted one of these for a long time. After reading lots of feedback I finally took the plunge and bought the base unit, the upper tier unit, extra clips, and the cover.
If you have the table space, to leave this unit out in the open, Clip It Up is a FANTASTIC way to store, see, and use your supplies.
BUT if you are like me and do not have the room to leave it out all the time..Think Twice about buying it. It starts with finding a place to store it. The 2 unit (lower & upper tiers) is quite large! Too large to store under most tables.
And then there is the cover. Even after using it for several months I always seem to knock items off while putting on or removing the cover. So each time I uncover it I am reclipping several items. And recently I have found things that have fallen off while I was putting the cover on are getting damaged (they fall inside so you don't know).
Now don't get me wrong, if I had the space to leave it out I would LOVE it and would probably buy several but when using it as a storage device with the cover...not so good.
