As promised in a previous post, I said I would post what I did at the crop......
I went to a crop last night and my cousin couldn't make it. The store (to be left unmentioned) wanted to still charge me the crop fee for her. After arguing with them and 2 phone calls to the owner, they finally agreed to let it go this time. As a thank you to the owner, I made her a quick thank you card. I hadn't brought any supplies with me, so a couple other gals let me use some of their supplies (thanks Kay and Kelley). I think it turned out just fine.
I spent my cropping time organizing my acrylic stamps-it took me forever!! After a few trials then I did n ot like, I ending up putting my stamps in between 2 8x8 transparancies and slipped them in an 8x8 album. I am still not satisfied with the outcome, but it is better than the ziplocs I was using before. I would love to find a way to store them with the orignal backing so I can see the stamp's image better. It is definately still a work in progress.
I didn't get around to organizing my ribbon last night, so I worked on it this morning while watching the Nascar race in Bristol. I took all my cheap spool-o-ribbon, cut about 3-4 feet off, and made my own "pull-eeze" ribbon holder that I can keep in my cropper hopper. Anything less than a foot is in my scraps ziplock baggie.
