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*

  3. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I am moving house in 2 weeks and have to set up a new scraproom so all ideas are great.

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:

Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 

My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
