Messy Scrap Room

Over on Cafemom in the scrap group that I help admin. we are doing an organizing challenge for our scrap spaces. Whether it be a room, closet, corner or just totes. To start we were to take pics of our area "as is" and post them. I went one better and video taped it. I actually did it using my camera. This is my very 1st video that I have posted on YouTube and of all things it's my messy scrap room! Oh well! A Memory to Scrap is having a garage sale on May 16th and I have bought a table to sell all the stuff I'm ready to get rid of. So far, I've gone through all my 12x12 paper and this is what I weeded out to sell. Crazy isn't it! But this is several years of collecting this paper.

So during my reorganizing of the paper I came up with an idea for organizing my scrap paper that I want to use for cards. Soooooo I made another video. I used the Small Wonder RCA video camera that we have and was able to shoot this one to show my idea. You know this is kind of fun. A lot of work, but fun. I'm thinking about maybe doing tutorial or project videos. Hmmmmm..... I'll be thinking over that one. I know I love watching scrap videos and there are a TON out there so I'm not sure if I have anything new to offer so we'll see. Anywho, I hope this organizing tip helps out. If you do have any organzing questions please feel free to ask me. I really enjoy organizing and also enjoy helping others. I mean I enjoy organzing so much that I WILL go and actually help you organize if you are close enough. I've helped friends and family organize closets, pantries and rooms.

Carving Pumpkins

Halloween was 6 months ago but hey that's not too bad for me. At least it didn't take me a year to scrap this. Believe me I have things from several years ago that I haven't even started on. This is sad to say but this was the first pumpkin my kids have ever carved. : O I know, bad mom! They got these pumpkins from their field trip from school so we ended up carving them the night before Halloween. They had a friend over (Isabel - the blonde girl) so she helped out with it. I just watched and took a ton of pics. It was my idea to have the pumpkin "throw up". hehe Austin loved it.

Plant Kindness

I made this card for a challenge over at Simply Scrapping. I used orange, blue and green stickles on the flowers, leaves and the bird. Part of the challenge was to use a sticker. I don't use stickers much, especially on cards but I found this one and thought it went well with the image. In case you can't read it, it says "he who plants kindness gathers love". That's a pretty good motto to live by.











I want to wish everyone a happy and blessed Easter.

Altered Match Boxes

How stinkin' cute are these?!! I bought these little match boxes at the CK convention last year. They were plain white. Just last week, I rec'd a swap that had a box like this, all decorated and held some brads, buttons and stuff in it for a hostess gift. I loved it. So I knew now what I was going to do with the ones I had been holding on to. Oh yeah, btw the swap had been sent to me by mistake, I wasn't the hostess for that swap but I was participating in it. So I ended up having to mail it to the host. I sooooo wanted to keep the hostess gift because it was so adorable. But I didn't. : (

Zebra Box

I made this box using only two 12x12 sheets of paper. You want to be sure to use the thick paper to help you box be sturdy. I used paper from Glitz called Sparrow Zebra and Sparrow Stain Paper which is a thick double sided paper.



This box will hold a post it note block perfectly. Great gift idea!


Here are the instructions for the box and cover.
