Default Just got Flex Phrases - now what???

I'm intimidated by this set. I don't know which words to put together. You can only see one side, the other is hidden so when I want to find a word I'd have to search all 28 blocks?! There has to be someone who has mastered the art of mounting this set. Help!!!

Default It took me HOURS

to do this set. HOURS. Literally watching the last Lord of the Rings Movie, I cut, and cut and cut.....

Finally got them mounted. It is a great set. Just takes FOREVER to mount!

I tried to couple similar words together....but got lost halfway through....

Good luck!

Hi Jen,
I was intimidated to - but I'm loving what I ended up doing. I just scanned my box, but I don't think I can post it here. So if you send me your e-mail address I will pop it off to you and you can decide if you like it.

For all those wondering - I cut the "stickers" way down. On the top I placed the word that had the coordinating stamp on the long side and on the bottom is the word that coordinates with the stamp on the end - so I have both word "stickers" placed on top of the block so that I will know what words are mounted on each block without pulling them all out of the box to see the second word. The only stamps I did not do this with were the symbols. Those I needed to mount the "alphabet way" because of size. Hope this helps.

FWIW, I did the same thing as Ellen, I put all my stickers, even the punctuation, on the top. Makes it easier to see everything....

I got mine last night (Stampin Start award-woot!) and I can't wait to use it on ribbon! I think Staz-On with our grosgrain will look fabulous!

Man, I wish I had thought of that! I already mounted mine...I am just going to stamp the words on small strips of paper and put them in the bottom of the box so that I can see where the stamps are and what ones are together...

I wrote a number on all my blocks and then typed up a numbered list with what words are on what blocks. I made 2 copies, one faces the outside of the box, and one is on the inside for when the lid is open. Now, I can just look at the list to see what word is on what block. Working great for me.

PS It took over an hour to mount though---it's a drag! But a very neat set.

Does this set come with the dividers? That would keep them straight so you can read them! On all my sets I make a copy of the sticker sheet before I put the set together. I then tape the copy on the inside cover. This way I know what is in there and my customer also know what goes in this set if more than one is out at a time. I was thinking about getting this set when the catty came out. Now I have to get it!

I photocopied the label sheet before I started.

For the most part, I tried to pair similar words together (like daughter and son, sister and girl, etc.) Of course, what makes sense to me may not to another person, but hey...they're my stamps

I took the long words (on one side) and wrote one of the short words under it, then crossed it off of the short side of the copy. I kept going until I had all of the words paired.

Then I went through and mounted them as I had planned on the copy. I think I may have made one or two changes, but not many...I didn't want to end up with 2 long words on the same block!

I want to stamp on some address labels so they can stay at the bottom of the box. Hopefully, if there's some sort of order I can find them after a while.

Thank you all so much for the great advice.
I'm going to start cutting tonight. I can't wait to use the set!

Obviously I am way too rigid. The only way I could think to mount this set was alphabetically. All the long words first, then the shorter words on the side. Now I just need to make a list of all the words, and alphabetize it, and put it in the box. And I thought double alphabets were a lot of work! It took me over an hour and a half to mount this set - and I am not the slowest to admit it. I know it is going to be a lot of fun once I get used to this set. Meantime, I remain, like you, intimidated. Even with it on the wood. Klutz and sissy?

Default Just got those flexi-phrases - now what?

I posted this before, but somehow it ended up under "announcements" and probably won't get viewed often. This is a overwelming list I found on SU's site, but it references there that it actually came from SCS (somewhere, I'm not sure where though!) . I'm planning to make copies of this and show to my customers for ideas & give them a copy if they purchase the set.
