Totally-Tiffany Embossing Station Unboxing and Review

I recently received the Totally-Tiffany Embossing Station in exchange for my honest review.

I really like the product and think I may even heat emboss more as a result.  It has a paddle with clip for holder your project so your hands don’t get blasted by the heat.  It has a little slot to hold you embossing anti-static pad and slots in the back to hold projects (before and/or after embossing).  It also has a nice built in place to wrap the cord.  The place to hold you embossing anti-static pad won’t hold my anti-static bottle but I can place my embossing pen and snow maker in the slot.  It also holds the ring that allows different size heat guns to be used in the station.  Note the heat tool does not come with the station.  I have a Darice Heat Tool.  I use the ring while in use but store it in the little slot when I am not using it so the heat tool falls deeper and is easier to transport from the storage location to the desk.

#the100dayproject days 21-30

Day 21 is a spring bench cover.  This was a hope chest that belonged to my Mom.  My sister refinished it and added some of my Mom’s old jewelry to it for the knobs.  I made a bench cushion and I have been making a zippered cover for every season for it.  I usually toss some themed pillows on the bench as well.  It makes for some extra seating in the Living Room when needed.

My Momento Storage

This week’s Get Organized Challenge was about Momento’s.  I scrapbook the Momento’s that I keep.  They go into a Totally-Tiffany Momento Keeper (no longer available) that I use as a holding album.  My chronological albums are pretty much up to date thanks to the challenge.  I am hoping to make special albums on my health journey.  I was diagnosed with UCTD (Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease six years ago and would like to put together an album about my journey to diagnosis and beyond just not sure exactly how to document everything.  I also want to do an entire album based on my son’s wedding.  A third potential album is on the creation of my craft studio.

Below is a picture of one of my holding albums:0204191322.jpg

I didn’t really have much to do on Momento’s this week as I am caught up in this category.  I have been rearranging my studio.  I recently took up sewing and wanted a better sewing area.  So I rearranged the tables in my studio (2 – 39″ tables, 49″ table and 59″ table) into a large U shaped area.  Previously the desks formed 2 – L shaped areas.  This is the current set up.  I placed the 2 – 39″ tables at the base of the U and formed the sides with the 49″ and 59″ tables.  My sewing area will use the 59″ table.  I still have some things to put away but I can work in it now.  I think this is going to work much better for me.


Tuesday will be the last class in this round of the challenge and will focus on Traveling with your supplies.

My Coloring Agent storage

This week in the Get Organized Challenge we are organizing our coloring agents.

I store my alcohol markers in a Totally-Tiffany XL Pen & Ink Palace.  My Nuvo drops are also currently stored on this unit.  My dylusions paints are in a Totally-Tiffany Edna Bag.  You can see my water color paints hanging on my slatwall


Alcohol inks in Totally Tiffany XL Pen & Ink Palace

Colored Pencils are stored in a Totally-Tiffany Pencil Perch and in a Totally-Tiffany Color Keeper.  The color keeper is kept by my coloring books.  You can see my watercolor crayons hanging on my slatwall.  They are inside Totally-Tiffany Debra bags.

Ink Pads are stored in a few different area.  The majority of my Stampin’ Up ink pads and refills are stored in the color carousel.  There are a few in a wooden unit that my father in law made for me that fits in my Ikea Kallax cubes.  I also have an assortment of other brands in that unit. I have daubers for all my Stampin Up inks and they are kept in a plastic container that I made chipboard inserts for.  I have another wooden shelf unit that my father in law made for me that holds my Tim Holtz mini distress inks in the tins designed for them.  I also use these tins for other mini inks.

I have some other pens that I store in Deflecto X cubes.  These are from a variety of manufacturers (Flair, Sharpies, etc).  I have another wooden unit that my  father in law made that currently houses my Tim Holtz markers and Spectrum Noir Glitter markers.

I keep a basket by the chair that I sit in to hold my lettering supplies which includes some pens/markers in Totally Tiffany Debra and Terri bags.  A Totally-Tiffany Pen & Ink Palace that I painted purple houses more lettering pens.

My paints, sprays, glitters and embossing powders are kept in Totally-Tiffany 7 drawer Stash N Store units.

My Momento Chalk inks are kept on a 6 level Desk Maid Unit by Totally-Tiffany on a Companion Cart (also Totally-Tiffany).  I use this cart for my planner supplies and that is what the inks are mainly what I purchased these inks for.

I catalog all my inks by color and manufacturer.  Currently my color catalog is in baseball card page protectors in a 3 ring binder.  I want to move the color catalog to my scraprack and have to consider the best option for me to do this.  My manufacturer color pages will remain in a 3 ring binder.  I created my own catalog pages for Stampin Up.  I use the same numbering system for ink pads, refills and the daubers for this brand of ink.  I also created a 2 page catalog for Tim Holtz Distress products.  Each color family has its’ own 2 page spread and I have columns for each type of product (ink pads, markers, oxides ink pads, paints, stains, etc).  I also created my own Copic catalog page because I couldn’t read the number on the sheet the manufacturer supplies.  My eyes are getting old.


Next week the GOC deals with Momentos.
