**Answer this week's "bonus question" in your post: What are your best organizing tips for storing your craft supplies? Go to Sunday Scrappin' to join the fun!

This week I made my husband's Valentine card. It was so much fun making it without him knowing what I was doing, and he was truly surprised! My son said it's a little girlie, but hubby doesn't seem to mind. Here it is.

This coming week, I need to work on my children's "through the years" books. They aren't ordinary "school days" books. They have places to put pictures, to write in names of friends, what they want to be when they grow up, school information, likes, dislikes, and photos and keepsakes. That's my plan.

Bonus Question: When I am going to take my scrap stuff to my sister's house, I take my crop-in-style. It holds all my paper, there is room for my chalks, charms, ribbon, and other embellishments, as well as tools. I also have a sticker binder, My memory mate binder with scissors, pens, and other tools, and my picture keeper. I put all three of those in one rolling cart, and off I go! I want to know how to keep some of my supplies at my fingertips at home for the rare occasion that I get some scrap time so I don't have to pull out all my big carts. Any ideas?

Have a great scrappin' week everyone!


  1. Very pretty!

    The way I keep stuff at my fingertips is by having a big mess on my craft table at all times...LOL! :) I'm still working on the organization part. ;)

  2. AWWWW! I love the card! I bet he did too! The kids' albums sound like a GREAT idea! I did something like that for birthdays, but a place for friends' pictures and yearly info is a GREAT idea! Think I might just have to jump on that one. As for keeping stuff at my fingertips, I put A LOT of stuff in my over-the-shoulder scrap crap holder, but I ALWAYS forget SOMETHING! :-D

  3. Beautiful card! The kids albums sound like a neat idea, and it gives them something to look back on in the years to come.

    For keeping things at your fingertips, I have a Pampered Chef utensil holder (ment for the kitchen) on my desk and it holds the stuff I grab often (journaling pen, scissors, ruler, adhesive etc.) and that sits right on my desk in front of me.

  4. Sweet that you made hubby a card! All of my items are kept in a rolling tote because I don't have storage space to anywhere else in the house. If I know I have a specific project to work on I take those papers and a variety of stickers/embellishments to work with. Sometimes that means I have to finish things up when I come home.

  5. I love that card, so nice! I think handmade cards are so much better than store bought ones!

  6. Hi, thanks for your comment! I would love to answer your questions. Let's see. First, it takes me anywhere from about 30 minutes to two hours to do a page depending on how complex it is, how many times I change my mind about what I want to do/use, how well my computer sooperates and whether or not my 2-year-old is in my lap, lol. Time wise its not a lot quicker than traditional scrapping but I am super picky. I guess it could be faster if I let it, lol. This nice thing is less mess and less cost.

    As for buying kits, I have purchased a few from my favorite artists, but I mostly use freebies. The times I have bought one have been when I needed something very specific for a project, or when I download a lot of freebies from one artist, I feel like its only fair to make a purchse too. The kits are generally very inexpensive, I've never paid more than about $5-$7 and you can use them endlessly.

    If you have other quesitons please feel free to email me at

    Happy Scrappin'!!

  7. Thanks for all the great organizing tips!

  8. Very nice card!

    I have a small tote that I keep just the basics in. It is great for when I have just a few minutes to scrap. :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
