The topic: Still excited!


All of these ideas running through my head for organizing my supplies tomorrow.

One of the things I hope to do is move the shelves off of one table to (not as easily accessible) another table. Things I don't use often.

I'd like to move my paper rolls (that I got earlier this year) to the accessible table. "What paper rolls?" you may ask. Well, for my friends with wide format printers (you know who you are), you may get an idea or two here.

This paper which is heavy enough to be used as cardstock. And this paper for envelopes that I can make with my punch (see the link in the next paragraph) or cut out with a Cameo and an older mat (I've discovered that you don't use regular weight paper with a new, sticky mat, it won't come off). Since I like the inside of the envelopes to compliment the cards I make. Of course, these are both two feet wide and my printer only takes thirteen inches. Cutting the paper in one foot lengths will give me two pieces of 12" x 12" paper.  I've tried using just regular white cardstock for this, the colors are okay, but not vibrant. I want vibrant. I don't want washed out. This paper is photo paper and prints up really nicely.

Brian said he would make a roller for me to put the paper roll that I'm using on, to pull it out more easily (it's awkward to work with, really awkward) for cutting. And I've got a couple of paper cutters that work with paper that's two feet wide. One (same model as mine) I got on eBay, the other on Amazon (link to blog post about the cutter).

I have a couple of projects in mind that will be much more exciting with custom paper and I can hardly wait to get started on them.

But first, the garage. And all of my supplies.
