Thursday – Craft/Scrapbooking Day
The best organizing tips I have ever heard or acted upon for scrapbooking comes from Tiffany Spaulding of www.thescraprack.com. I have taken her class at Creating Keepsakes Convention as well as her online Challenges. The best thing I learned from her was how to seperate all my items – paper, pens, embellishments, stamps, die cuts, etc. She has a very simple 4 section system:
The 4 Sections
- Alphabets, Numbers and Punctuation
- Themes A to Z (school, church, vacation, beach, animals, pets, scouts, sports, etc)
- The Calendar (Jan through December including seasons)
- The Rainbow (ROYGBIV is a great way to start)
The main idea is to sort like items together. All of my red items are together; all my animal stuff is together. It makes making a page or a card sooooo much easier.
To learn more and take one of her online classes, head over to www.thescraprack.com and check out all her awesome products as well!
And since I didn’t post a video yesterday, I came across one of my all time favorite scenes from The West Wing (how I miss this show!). Ainsley, this is everyone, everyone meet Ainsley.
