#Cre8time Organization for the Office... with Designer Crafts Connection and Deflecto Craft


Hello everyone! Today is another Designer Crafts Connection Bloghop challenge... this time featuring office supplies from Deflecto Craft. Who doesn't love office supplies - especially when we put our own Cre8time twist on them. As a graphic artist working in the printing industry, these items have transformed my disorganized mess on my desk.

For this challenge, Deflecto Craft provided three items for us to work with: Stackable Cube 4 Drawer Organizer; the 5" x 7" Black Bordered Craft Frame; and the Interior Image® 8 1/2" x 2" Sign Holder Nameplate. Each of these products on their own are sleek and functional, but combined, your desk and work area can be totally transformed.

The first thing I set off to embellish was the Interior Image® 8 1/2" x 2" Sign Holder Nameplate. I used some silver letter stickers from my stash to spell out "dream BIG" along the black swoosh bar. I enlarged my logo and text from my business cards to fit the plexiglas area. This can be changed out easily at any time by sliding out the protective anti-glare plexiglas and replace with a new insert.

Now I move on to putting a little bling onto the 5" x 7" Black Bordered Craft Frame. These frames are great as they are for a sleek, modern look... but are a perfect blank canvas for a myriad of projects or handmade gifts.

I had a lanyard from a convention with black square gems that was coming apart, so I gently peeled the gems off of the felt backing and re-adhered as an accent to the black edge of the acrylic frame. I had one small section of gems remaining and I saved this to embellish the storage drawer cube. I typeset a favorite quote by Arisotle and printed out. I trimmed page to fit frame and I have an instant piece of "Quotable Art" that looks like something storebought.

I don't know about you, but my desk seems to end up with a bunch of cups holding a hodge podge of pencils, pens, markers and whatnot... causing more clutter than actual organization. Insert the Deflecto Craft Stackable Cube 4 Drawer Organizer and all this clutter is organized in a jiffy. I really love the clear cubes as they blend in to the background and let the contents be seen and easily accessed. I need to have everything within reach and these drawers are so handy.

I divided up my cups of pens and supplies into the 4 drawers... and I have room for plenty more! I wrapped a purple decorative tape around the edge of the storage cube and topped it off with some of the matching black bling leftover from the frame. This ties all three items together with pops of black.

Sleek and Saavy Desk Organization!
