Operation Organization!

I've had quite a few requests asking how I store stuff so I thought I'd share a few tips with you. I'll be back on the cartridge challenge in the next few days.
Sticker/Embellishment File

This is a crate filing thingy from Walmart - 5 bucks maybe? I have 3 paper pads in the back and a cardboard backing 12x12 on the top of the files.  I keep that there to keep dust and cat hair away from my embellishments.

 As you can see I have hanging files and then folders with categories.  Pets, Seasons, Holidays, etc.  I just came up with this system yesterday. Before that all my stuff was thrown in drawers labeled 'embellishments' and I got tired of rooting thru them for what I wanted. Now I can find them WOOT!

Lil Clippy Thingies
Look at those cute lil clips (click photo to enlarge)  I put 2 on  my paper stand for scissors and foam squares.  On the side I put one to hold older mats I need to recondition.  The 2nd photo shows 2 more clips for scissors and a ruler.  These are 3M and I found them in the picture hanging section at Target.  They have foam tape on the back that sticks to the wall and won't damage it (so it says)  6 of these hooks were 4 bucks and some change.
Which brings me to Ribbon - I need a new system people.  Look in the picture above and see 4 stacks of ribbons but that's not all I also  have 2 12x12 drawers full and my hanging rod is FULL.  What is my obsession with ribbon now?  If you have a suggestion I'd love to hear it.

Wanna see my favorite new organization thingy?  This is a photo album from Target, 6.99.  I bought it thinking that I could put my cuttlebug folders in it but the sleeves were too small for the A2 folders. So I did this instead...

But I think I may have too many - cause here is what it looks like closed:

How do you organize your scraps?  I bought a 12x12 accordion file and it's getting mighty full! I have it separated by colors.

 I love the 12x12 drawers at Target - I have had 2 sets (under my desk) for YEARS and yesterday I bought 3 more sets. I would have bought more but they didn't have any more.  But looky looky!

And finally - my storage 'system' for cuttlebug embossing folders.  What do you do with yours?

There you have it - would love to know what you do. Please send your links or photos.



  1. Great ideas. I will definitly use some of these.

  2. Soooo organized - love it !
    Might grab a few of those bins from WMart*

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
