Monday's Organization Tip


Uggghhhh. I just realized that my Monday organization tip was never posted.


Here goes.... I have found that the easiest way to store stamp pads is to buy a cassette tape holder. I turned my ink pads upside down, they store best this way because it keeps the ink always at the surface. Then I used a Sharpie marker to write the stamp pad name on the side. This way I can easily see which color I am looking for.


I hope this helps!!

Video #24 Frugal Card Making

Hi guys.... I wanted to post this new video showing how to make a card using repurposed items. Those things around the house that you normally don't think of using. I challenge you to find something around you that is not meant for scrapbooking or card making and make a project with it.

I hope you enjoy the video!!

Monday Organization Tip!!

Hi everyone.... I have decided that Mondays are going to be organization tip days. We all need help organizing our supplies better and let's be honest, it's just plain fun to play with our supplies.

I have a small addiction to ribbon. I have tried to come up with many ways to store it and none have ever worked for me. I don't like keeping it on the rolls because they take up way too much room.

This is how I am doing it now. I am rolling all of my ribbon onto doll clothespins found at Michaels or AC Moore. I used to secure the ribbon with a piece of tape on the end but as you will see in the later photos, the tape kept coming undone. Now I am using a sewing pin to secure the ribbon. It works fantastic.

I hope you feel inspired to come up with a ribbon storage system that works for you.

Disney Give A Way

Hi friends... I wanted to share this goodie with you. I have this really cute Matterhorn page element that is perfect for Disneyland. I don't have any use for it (sadly Disney World does not have this ride) so I thought I would offer it up to those who would like it. Just leave a comment on this post with a way for me to contact you if you win and I will send it out. I will draw a winner on Wednesday the 3rd at 12:00 PM EST.
