I Actually Did Something This Week!

"Sunday Scrappin" is a meme (hosted by the talented Amy) for scrapbookers and all paper crafters - a place to share your ta-da's and your to-do's as well as answer a "bonus question" related to crafting.

I haven't been able to do anything - NOTHING - in the way of crafting for at least three weeks, so this week, I took a small (tiny) step toward crafting again.

I ordered prints of my digital photos from Webshots to go in this adorable Hallmark holiday album.
I also unloaded a huge box (and then some) of memorabilia that I plan to put in my kids' school albums. Remember those old "school days" books some of us had when we were little? My mom bought me something similar, but a whole lot better. It is a ringed binder with a separate folder for each age/grade as well as pockets for mementos and places for photos. I've tried to find them online, but I haven't been successful.

I also took pictures today of our step-daughter and her college when we drove her up to Nacogdoches after a rare weekend home. And I checked some websites for inspiration for the next pages that I do.
I am looking for something that will help me organize some scrapbooking supplies in a relatively small place so that I can have them at my fingertips for the occasional time I do have to do crafts. Paper, photos, scissors, a few embellishments, that I can keep handy instead of in my big rolling cart that is hard to lug out. Any suggestions?

Bonus Question: What are your favorite crafts sites? I am really enjoying Page Maps. They have sketches of design layouts that are good when you need some ideas. Can't wait to read everyone else's!

Cute album! If you have a specific project you want to work on or are working on you can keep your supplies handy in a tote or small bin that you can easily pull out. Have a great week!

That album is cute. I think sometimes the "research" around a project takes me longer than the actual project. I've got to check out PageMaps- it's been mentioned a couple of places this week.

Cute little album. :) Just this week I filled a small tote with the basics I need to scrapbook. This way when I go out to scrap I have what I need. Yes check out Page Maps...I think you will like it. :)

Argh! I have so much scrapbooking stuff that I have collected and have not gotten to actually put anything together!!

Cute book!

Scrapbooking is such a beautful art. Me, well, I am not creative at all! Your work is gorgous.

Amy said...

Sounds like you're one step closer to being back on the scrap wagon. LOL.Hope you can get more done this week!

Before I got a lot of scrapping stuff, I used to keep my supplies in an upright Rubbermaid type container that had a carrying handle. You can see a picture of it here: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/LilMamaShutterbug/organize010.jpg
It worked great and I could put as little or as much into it as I wanted!

I hope you'll like it.

I've been scrapping for a while too but I'm lucky enough to have plenty of room and lots of supplies. Still, I think it can be narrowed down to lots of pretty, decorative and coordinating 12X12 paper, solid color cardstock, a paper-cutter, adhesive, corner-rounder and paper scissors. It would be nice to have some colored buttons and misc. ribbon. A solid background, several strips of patterned paper (layered), and creative picture-trimming and layout, perhaps matted with another coordinating color. I also journal on my computer and print it off on white cardstock. I'm all about keeping it simple so I can keep on moving!
