Default Amazing to Zany

Am I the only one who refuses to buy this set because I know I will never be able to find the word I want. With all those tiny word in that little box and on both sides of the block, so you can't stand them up, I know that would just drive me insane. I didn't get Everyday Flexible Phrases for the same reason.

Am I the only kook that thinks this way??

I'm sure I'll get it, but here''s what I did with the others like this. I put them in small ziploc bag with a label for what words were in each on. I keep them in the original box, but I only have to look in a smaller space to find what I need. It works for me!

Well, I am sure you aren't the only one.

I am planning on getting it--but it is going to be a while.

I mounted all of my EFP stamps so it made sense to me, then I stamped the pairs onto strips of cs (one strip for each channel in the box--they come in the channeled alpha boxes). I stuck the strips onto the roof of the box above each channel and it acts like a map. Even my customers have been able to find the words they were looing for. It works for me and my little brain.

I actually mounted both words on one side of the block and put both stickers on top. Then that way I can just read through the box. Since they are such little words it is very easy to ink up without getting the other word. I have all 3 of those now! I love them for scrapbook pages or stamping on ribbon or to fit into the hodgepodge hardware. They are great for so many things!

I don't have any of the small tiny word sets but I love Amazing to Zany and ordered it the other day, along with the matching accents set. I love the font! It would drive me crazy not to be able to find them also, so I think I'll use the zip lock bag approach!

I ended up buying the 1/8 inch snap stamps so that I can make any word I want, including those from EFP, EEP, and Amazing to Zany. The snap stamps are so cute, and you can use either the formal, or casual or mix and match them!

I got the 1/8 inch snap stamps also...and I am loving them!

Will probably be purchasing another set so I can spell out words like Sympathy. It only has one Y in the snap set!

I'm still on the fence on this one. I use EFP and EEP sometimes but not much. So I don't know if I need another $40 set that I'm only going to use sometimes!

I don't have any of these sets but what about going the unmounted route with them? They would all be able to be seen easily. JMO

Ok, I JUST finished mounting this set... I mounted them on either end, and put both stickers on the curvy side. I'll take a picture to show you. This way I can see both stickers through the box, and they all lay down flat. I put them in alphabetical order so it's easy for me to find.

I make a word doc listing both words that are on the block like this:

______/_______

and then place the list on the inside lid facing up so I can see what is each row. I cut the list up so there is a small list at the bottom of each row.
This works for both EFP sets, and I will do this for the newest one that came in the mail today.

I'm telling you, you girls are a bunch of smarty pants!! Thank you for all the suggestions. Maybe I will end up getting them. I really like them, just figured they'd be to frustrating.

Here is a picture. I don't know how to make it large enough so you can actually see it, but you get the idea. If you want a larger picture, you can PM me your email address and I can send it to you.

The sticker that is right side up is the way the stamp will show, thats why they are two different directions. It was really easy, and only took me about an hour to get them all the way mounted.

I just checked all 6 of my sets (both casual and formal in 1/2 inch, 1/4 inch, and 1/8 inch) and all have 2 letter "Y"s. The letter I don't have enough of is the letter "n". I want to do ANNOUNCING, but need another "n". I will probably use the casual set and turn one of the letter "u"s upside down to make another "n".

I'll probably get this one at some point. I have EFP and like it. I mounted the words so they make sense to me. For example: brother and sister on one block, mother, father, on another, etc. I copied the sticker sheet before I cut it (I do this for every set and double stick tape it to the inside of the lid). I also can open the lid to see what stamp I have facing up, or lift the clear box up to see what I stamp is facing down.

Does that make sense?

Now cutting them...that's a huge pain, however, it isn't nearly as bad as the tall tales alpha or the Euphoria Alpha and Numbers. Those two took for ever.
