I was a bit worried at first. I had ordered the ScrapOnizer and was waiting to get it. Then I read the first review on it on this site and was scared that I had made a bad purchase. But I had also read some other good and excited comments about it on a designers' blog.
I got and open it up - at first I thought it was flimsey, it was so light. The plastic is very clear and see through - I like that. The individual cases open and close like books, there are no latches or locks. The cases snap-lock together so the contents don't move from one compartment to the next. I love that I can take the compartment trays out. There are four different trays. The white holding box is like a heavy posterboard and seems sturdy enough for me.
I really like these cases and I am very surprised with how much I was able to put inside these - very compact. Some of my wood stamps and ink pads fit perfectly inside the three compartment tray. I'm sure I am going to have to order more of these ScrapOnizers. I think I'll want to "Scrap" one up and decorated it like some of the ones I saw on the actual website idea page. They were very cute. So far I am extremely pleased with my ScrapOnizer.
I was worried when I saw how light weight this was, but once I put stuff in I was amazed how well things fit and how firm it was. I filled the "3" section with tear drop inks and could not believe how many it held. I liked that I could but a label on the edge so I know where stuff is and also that I could take just the "one" I needed to go scrap with friends. It travels well and fits in with my other "scraping to go" things. Also the incerts are all removable. Nice!!
Easy way to story variety of sizes of flowers or demensional stickers where they can easily be seen. I had been storing them in shoe boxes and had no idea how many of them I had! This way they are color coordinated and easily reacheed and in view. They will also be much easier to transport for taking on crops!
One of my greatest challenges (as a Scrapbooker AND Professional Organizer) is to systematize my 'little' things ... this is the answer ... I purchased the 8 1/2 x 11 package and it is wonderful. I would recommend this to EVERY cropper out there!
I originally bought these to store my flowers. But now i want to get some more for my collection of chipboard. I love that i can see everything and that everything stays in it's own compartment. I'm definantly getting some more.
