I love to scrapbook, it a real passion of mine. I enjoy journalling about events and how much love I have for my kids. I am thrilled that in years to come they will be able to read through the albums and see how well-loved they each were.
To scrapbook you need papers, embellishments, albums, flowers, bling, buttons, brads, stamps, inks the list is endless. So how do you organise all this ‘stuff’? The million dollar question I know you are all waiting for. Over a few weeks I’ll gradually take you through how I organise my scrapbooking area.
Firstly I’ll show you how to organise the Thickers/letters and some embellishments. Now your going to notice that I have ALOT of scrapbooking supplies. There was a time there that I was completely addicted and couldn’t resist buying something nearly every week. You will be pleased to know thought I haven’t brought much in the past 6 months. My plan is to use what I have before I buy more. I was also lucky enough a few years ago to be on a design team for an online scrapbooking site which allowed me to get many of my supplies at cost price.
HOW TO ORGANISE LETTERS
- Using a Bantex ring binder folder fill with page protectors or try a display book
- Organise your letters into colours, then each pack into its own page protector.
- Label each colour section for easy access. I used the Avery Write On Tabs purchased from Woolworths.
HOW TO ORGANISE RUBON’S & EMBELLISHMENTS
- Using a Bantex ring binder folder fill with page protectors or display book
- Organise each rubon’s/embellishment into Categories suggested below.
- Place each category into page protectors. I use 1 protector for 2 items, front and back.
- Label each category for easy access. I used the Avery Write On Tabs purchased from Woolworths.
At the moment this is how I store my folders and paper (I will discuss paper further in another post).
