I hope spring has sprung in your neck of the woods. I live in a climate where it's always warm ~ then hot, but I used to love seeing those buds peeping up through the ground.
So, with the advent of spring, do you like to break out the spring/summer colors? I recently found this yummy 6 x 6 paper pack over at Joann's. It's Embellish by Dena and I wasn't familiar with this product, but just loved the yummy spring/summer colors. I'm planning on creating some Mother's Day cards with it.
I also recently ordered this yummy summer collection by Echo Park.
Does this "scream summer" or what?
I also thought I'd do a little follow-up to Mary Jo's post about how she stores some of her scrapbook supplies.
I've been looking and looking for the perfect sized basket for the 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper that I know I'll be using ~ so I want it them out where they're handy. I finally found a basket that was the perfect size. It also HAD to have sides that went straight down. It bugs me if my paper can't sit flat. Here's a picture of my basket full of patterned paper.
Here are pictures of the sides.
If you're wondering how I made my dividers, I just used 12 x 12 pieces of chipboard (the ones that come with all of my online orders) and I used white cardstock (doubled) to write the name of the manufacturer/theme on. I used strapping tape and taped the front and the back (to the chipboard).
I got this little cutie to hold some of my supples ~ it matches the big basket. I can carry it back and forth to my work table. (Of course, I wish I'd gotten more of these, so I'll pick them up next time.)
I have converted my walk-in closet to house a lot of my supplies. That way, I can just shut the doors and it doesn't look like such a mess in my scraproom. My hubby built me an organizational unit that has different sized "cubbies" in it. I have lots of 6 x 6 paper pads, so the small cubbies are perfect for those, plus lots of other things.
I bought the little containers at the Dollar Spot at Target and have embellishments in them.
Here's a picture of my closet.
As you can see, I'm big on "containerizing". I also love that I have "room to grow".
Hope you've enjoyed a peek into my scraproom organization.
Thanks for stopping by today.
