Good evening everyone!

Alright, so this week we're organizing our templates. I'm sitting out again. I don't own any such things...

Thanks to everyone that wished me well. I'm doing a bit better. Last night, I camped-out in the bathroom. We'll leave it at that. Went to work this morning, but ended up leaving at like 10am. Finally, now-I'm starting to get up and get some things done. Of all people, my fiance is doing my job (yes, he works with me, unfortunately). He text-messaged me and told me: "You've been replaced." How nice! I said: "Yea, until I come in and find all the mistakes you made tomorrow"... Hey, I offered to go back in to close. I can be extremely sick and still do my job better than any of the guys can.

Ok, so someone asked last week how 52 Card Pickup was going. It's pretty cool. I like it. I'll get this week's techniques caught-up this weekend. Working six days a week suck!

crisann, Hope it helps to know that a group of peas from all over the world are wishing you feel better!

It must be something about this week's challenge, but the original thread had several sick people on it, also. Must be the curse of the Templates...

QOTW: yes I am still scrapbooking but, I 'm not doing the complete overhaul, just dragging it out and sorting one bunch of things at a time. Unfortunately I keep finding more tucked away in drawers and boxes and cupboards and my kid's toy box and ... Anyways, I really admire anyone who is doing the overhaul and still scrapping.

I do have a few templates. Noo they're not in a box, they're in a binder. I was looking at Wookie's binders and I have some pockets that might do a better job for the smaller templates than the page protectors I'm still using.

? for anyone willing to answer.

Amongst the things that I save are some die cut negatives. (I don't know what else to call the remains of a sheet after you've pulled out the die cut.) So far just a library pocket and a train set. I thought it would be a neat idea to trace the outline and make a new one.

Would you store these with templates?

My brass templates are in an old Christmas card box and my other larger templates are in a magazine holder. They work perfect for me so I won't be changing anything this week. ALTHOUGH, I do really like that flippy pocket thing on Wookiemouse's blog and might look into it.

Crisann, hope you are feeling better. I work with my dh and can relate to what you're saying. LOL

I don't have any templates other than a few and they're in a cube drawer. So I can sit out this week as well.

As far as the QOTW? I was scrapping quiet a bit, but my room wasn't working right for me. I've been shuffling stuff back around and hopefully will settle on something I can live with. I'm going to switch to doing a premade album this week just to get the creativity going again.

Glad to hear you're starting to feel better Crisann. I couldn't imagine working with my DH so all the more power to ya

I do have some templates - they're pretty much coralled in one of my drawers. It's good enough for me. I have some journaling ones, some letters and a few brass ones. I may move my letter ones to my alpha sticker basket, but I haven't decided yet.

QOTW - I haven't scrapped much lately, but it's the season. I get so busy doing outside stuff once the weather is nice. By the time I come in I'm done - no staying up late. But I do need to get a ton of invites done this weekend for my sister's adoptive baby shower ... so I guess there has to be some craftiness this weekend happenning.

I store what templates I have in a binder. I've never actually USED a template, but I seem to have a small collection of them, and now they're nicely organized.

QOTW: I have not been scrapping during this overhaul, however, I have just finished putting together a stamp index for my CTMH stamps. stamp index
Tomorrow will be my first day of scrapping during this challenge. I am having a friend over to scrap, and am looking forward to it.

Good morning everyone!

Question of the week: Are you still scrapbooking during the challenge?

Trying to be productive during the challenge, but it goes in spurts. I'm working on some mini projects (Father's Day accordion album and creating a future workshop), and the 52 Card Pick Up class at BPS.

I own a few Coluzzle cutting guides and one Spellbinders Nestabilities. Are these considered templates? If so, they're already organized and working in my space.

All the Coluzzle stuff is stored in a CH Paper Pouch in my Expedite. My one and only Nestie is in with my Cuttlebug folders, stored in a cute box in the Expedite cubie with the Cuttlebug machine. The box works since my stash is small, but as the embossing folders and Nesties grow (), I'll be looking for another system.

Now I must go dust my Expedite or I can't post any photos. The dark color shows even the smallest amount of dust.

QOW: I am not scrapping much. I have been spending off weeks catching up on stamp index, etc.

Amber, tfs pictures of your stamp index. Congratulations on getting that done!

Templates: my old Brass Templates are in an old target document box. I put them in a box of stuff that I may not keep. If I get through this challenge, and I really do not think I will ever use these, I can easily get rid of them.
12 x 12 plastic templates are in a shallow desk drawer where I can use them. I tend to forget about stuff in binders, so I think this will work better for me.

I have some old templates (plastic ones like old CM shapes) that I do still use to trace and cut shapes occasionally. Mostly circles and stars. But I don't cut my pictures with them anymore LOL! They are stored in a folder in a drawer. Easy Peasy this week! QOTW: I have still been scrapbooking. Trying to get layouts finished so I can put them in the book. Add pics to this one, journaling to that one. Got 11 layouts in progress, but not finished. Wish my summer vacation would get here a little sooner

I have my templates in a couple of plastic storage boxes - one is my coluzzle templates, and the other are a few alphabet templates I kept from years ago.

I'm scrapping here and there as well.

So templates were a breeze. Decided to keep my 'homemade' ones where they were.

The stamp index is finally done. Note to self - keep it up to date. That was a lot of work.

I can't imagine how those of you with thousands of stamps are going to accomplish this task.

Hi ladies,

Crissan hope you are feeling better...

scrappnBee where are you??

I do not have much templates
1 plastic 12x12 that I store with my papers
1 small plastic alpha sheet that hangs from my coatrack, because I use it often.
Than I know I have a few brass ones but I can not seem to find them anywhere..... Well if I find them I do know where they go. I want them in my stamp binder in photo page protectors (they are A4 and have 4 pockets on each side.) I think 1 page protector will be enough.

QOTW: I'm not doing much scrapping yet. Just my malta album and a few loose things. It's raining here so I should do more than this but I'm distracted by other things.

Tell the Inner Hoarder she can hold on to your memorabilia until we hit that week this round.

Just no disappearing acts this time
