Punching Out and Organizing My Scraps of Paper
It's funny how I organize and prep scrapbooking and cardmaking AFTER I attend a weekend crafting event. I just TALK at the event, and then I come home inspired by all the others who were actually getting something done.
As many of you know, I am doing our "Scrap Club" or "Samplers" a little different again this year. I am going to be offering one-of-a-kind 12x12 layout kits for $5 in March. It's going to be a huge, gigantic one-day sale for everyone to come stock up on however many layouts they want. :)
I am so excited to be creating these kits that it has segued into many other fun projects. One, I cleaned my whole stamping room...including the much needed dusting job....thank you e-cloth Furniture Cloth! Second, I reorganized my stamp room. That shouldn't be a shocker if you know me even a smidge. Third, I took my son's "rock organizer" that he hasn't filled yet and decided to make an "accessory organizer" out of it. Bad mom!
I used my two favorite designer paper packs (Summer Smooches and In-Colors) and just punched out a bunch of shapes. My favorite shapes are:
Elegant Butterfly Punch
Bird Builder Punch
Fancy Flower Punch
It's fun to layer buttons on the 1" circles, to use them plain, or to use them as flower centers. :)
I really liked making this with just my "scraps" as I made the $5 layout kits. I can't wait to sit some night and use it! I got this organizer at Michaels and if I end up using this system well, I may make more organizers with other themes of designer paper.
Have you ever pre-punched images and organized them for quick use?! I would love to hear!
