Happy Friday, everyone! This has been a wonderful short week me. I love holiday weekends and the chance to visit with family who don’t live nearby. We all had a wonderful time.
This week I get to share with you a fabulous new tool from Perfect Paper Crafting. A little over a month ago they announced their ‘Perfect Portfolio‘ and let me tell you, it is pretty close to being perfect! And the colour, I love it! The purple cloth fabric makes me smile!
When I first went to open up the portfolio and started playing with it, I was super impressed with the quality of the magnets. When they say it is magnetic, they are serious! This portfolio has a series of magnets that helps it stay shut tight to hold your projects in for transporting. There are magnets in the top portion of the portfolio that make it seem like a clip board but without any metal pieces to damage your projects. The magnets even help to hold your pen to the portfolio when you place it in your bag. Although I only received one portfolio, so I cannot tell you that I have tried this myself, the video also shows how the magnets help you to keep multiple portfolios together which is a fabulous concept as well.
Isn’t that cool? I have not had the Perfect Portfolio for long, but in the short time I have had it, I have found lots of ways to use it during the day. Here are a few of the ways I used it.
Sometimes when I am working at my desk, I like to see my projects held up instead of flat on my desk. I was recently working on a few project life pages so I hung up the page protectors and set up the Perfect Portfolio like an easel. This allowed me to easily see the pockets I was filling and a number of the photos I was considering using on those pages. This easel feature is very cool!
This image shows that you can hang your card from the strong magnetic top and work on them while they hang from the easel. I liked that my card was not sliding around my desk as it made it easier to attach the tiny little die cut pieces for the Cute Fruits faces.
This last image shows the way I used the Perfect Portfolio the most. I really enjoyed being able to have something strong and sturdy on my lap while I was colouring my stamped images. It allowed me to work at the desk, on the couch, at the hockey rink, and even the rehearsal hall. The Perfect Portfolio slipped nicely into my purse and held my current project tight while keeping it clean. I pulled it out whenever I had a few spare moments to colour.
