I have some new toys I've been playing with and I'm excited to share them with you today!
I've acquired another vintage Rolodex V File from E Bay recently, it's a V524Jr and holds 2 1/2" X 4" file cards. What really inspired me to do this was seeing Papertrey Ink's June new release. They came out with dies to cut your own cards to fit these files and a coordinating stamp set. I splurged and bought both dies, the stamp set and went looking on E Bay for a vintage Rolodex V file.
I have lots of ideas on ways to use my new mini Rolodex so I thought I'd share some of those here on my blog on Friday's till I run out of ideas...
Pictured above is the V File and the labeled cover card for my Copic marker fun, I used the Papertrey Ink Desktop file die to cut out the card.
I had a Whipper Snapper image on a sheet of Copic X Press It that I cut out with the Papertrey Ink Desktop Left File die. I then had fun and colored it with my Copic markers.
I also used Papertrey Ink's Desktop File Inspiration Stamp Set to record the Copic markers and other info I used on a card that goes behind the colored image.
I gave links to Papertrey Ink for the products I've used, I don't work for them nor am I on their design team. I just wanted to give you the chance to see where everything comes from and if you'd like to have them too, you can.
I have several Papertrey Ink dies but have found them rather challenging so I'll show you how I've gotten around being challenged by them and we'll have fun using them in the weeks to come. I love their stamp set that coordinates with these dies but they didn't cover everything I've been thinking so I'll also show how to use your computer to label the cards and cut out digital images too.
Here's a sneak peak of what's on my little file so far.
