Stampin’ Up! Framelits Fever!

I have over two dozen sets of Stampin’ Up!’s Framelits and I am NOT quitting collecting these fabulous lightweight, easy to store, easier to use die cutting tools.  They are AWESOME!

Part of the reason I love these so much is that they really are so easy to use, especially now that we have the magnetic platform.  You can stamp your image, lay the Framelit over the stamped image and cut EXACTLY where you want, creating a perfect image-and-shape combo every time.  LOOOOOOVE!

The other thing I love about these is that I store mine in a way that puts them ALL right out there so I can see them and still have them in a compact, tidy spot right at hand.  Here’s how they look:

Here’s how I did that.  I took an 8 X 8 album (from Stampin’ Up! of course!) and cut some of the white backing from the Designer Series Paper packs (I hoard that stuff like a squirrel hoards acorns!) to fit the pages.  Then I lay out my new Framelits on that square and decide where the magnetic strips (cut from a magnetic sheet) should go to best hold them in place, stick down the strips, pop the Framelits on there and slide the square into one of the page protectors.  Then I use my Curly Label Punch to make a little name tab at the top with the number of Framelits in the set underneath.  Cute, huh?

INSIDER TIP – The item number of the Framelit set IS engraved on each piece in the Framelit set so if you end up with an orphan get out a bright light and your magnifying glass and you will be able to return your little wanderer to its family.

Come back for some really cute projects using Framelits!  Honestly, it’s rare that I make a project and don’t use a Framelit somewhere – they are so versatile and with all the shapes that Stampin’ Up! has provided for us there’s one for almost every single project!

What’s your favorite Framelit set?

    Great idea Brenda! Thanks for sharing. I love the magnet strips as opposed to a whole piece….your way is effective and uses a lot less magnet.

      Yes, and it makes your album lighter and easier to use! Just make sure that you lay out the whole set on the chipboard so you can make sure that you get good magnetic coverage! There are a few sets where I even have just little squares here and there under edges of odd shaped pieces – as long as you get some “stick” on two spots on the framelit you will be good to go!
