good afternoon, ladies!

todays's project is pulling up the carpet on the enclosed porch - nice paint-splattered, concrete floors underneath. lol... i'm at the point of not having carpet in the rooms the furbabies are allowed in - too many issues. the only areas of the house that will be carpetted are the two upstairs bedrooms - right now, the one is my studio, but eventually, i'll be moving out on the enclosed porch - it needs redone first, ofcourse. s/o and his dad are working on the framing for the shed.

what's everyone been up to lately? i haven't gotten much accomplished creatively lately - too much time spent/wasted (depending on how you want to look at it) at work.

placed an order for some mixed media supplies - so, looking forward to getting that box - pan pastels, shiva artist paint sticks, neocolor crayons, and bombay inks.


here's the link for wookiemouse's blog.

question of the week: do you still have any old-school die cuts? i'm talking the solid-color cardstock ones that you used to be able to buy at m's...


happy organizing!

I do not have any old die cuts. Or if I do, I don't know about them, LOL!
I scrapped all day yesterday. The Scraproom (kit clu held an all day online crop. It was FUN and I got a lot done. I also found out that my printer prints some pretty fabulous photos! LOL!

Enjoy your home renovations, Cristi! Hope you are you documenting them!!

I actually sat down this afternoon and did a layout! Otherwise, I'm working alot too, crisann

I've never heard of any of the art supplies you are waiting on, but they sound fun!

QOTW: I probably have a few CM die cuts filed away under themed categories in my CM accordian folder... otherwise, I don't have any 'bought' die cuts. I use my Cricut for that.

Have a good week!

Old school die-cuts? Wow...that takes me back. I can't say that I do. If I do, they are filed away with my embellishments. So much for knowing what I have.

I hope the remodel of your porch goes well, Cristi. Having a studio on an enclosed porch sounds nice!

Y'all have a good week!

No old school die cuts here, either! I've had some sort of cutting machine since almost the beginning of my scrapping days, so I never bought any of these.

Crazy times around here...took my property and casualty insurance licensing class all last week, and now I'm trying to catch up at work. Moved DS's stuff into his college apartment last Saturday, and moving DD's stuff into her dorm this Saturday! I'm not looking forward to coming home to a house without kids.

Looking forward to next week's challenge...I created a new holder for my pens and pencils out of a caddy from Meijer and some foam board. Just haven't had time to put the pens in!!

Have a great week, everyone!

No die cuts here. Just my Cricut E and all my cartridges.

Where did you order the pan pastels, Crisann? I'm not a big mixed media person, but I did see a project using pan pastels that intrigued me.

As far as my room organizing goes, I have abandoned it for now. The kids are keeping me busy, and I'm still working on projects from last January. I'll get back to work in there when the kids are back in school.

The great sun room project is coming along nicely. Only four more totes of misc. odds & ends to go thru. Granted the totes are huge...but, once I'm finished, I hope to have 3 EMPTY totes, and a 'just what we use' tote to store.

I came across a different thread today. One that had a video of a lady's scraproom, filled to the brim with 'stuff'. It made me very sad. I couldn't watch it anymore after she said she had purchased stuff over the past 2 weeks that hadn't made it into the room yet. She had thousands of dollars of stuff in her room, brand new in packages, some-what organized, just everywhere. Something like 7 feet worth of paper, and then cubes full of stamps, embellishments, and tools. It just went on, and on, and on. Sadly, I don't think she actually crafts, ever. Just shops.

Cristi- your home improvement projects sound as fun as mine! We just tiled our basement floor after digging up a portion of it to put a bathroom in... (only 18 more inches of wall tile to go in there)

Funny I was looking for an old skool die cut I had purchased and never used just the other day.. it was the shape of a stop sign.. do you think I could find it??? nope not until after I made one! lol

Hey with die cuts does this week include journaling die cuts.. I have started accumulating them at rapid pace.. I have always kept a little bin of journaling spots in front of me (so I would use them) and tags in a "tag bin" but it seems more manufacturers are coming out with diecut journaling squares, papers, spots etc that its all outgrown itself... Anyone have a great idea for storing these... or was this another week?? lol

I have lots of die cuts, but then I began scrapping in 1997 and over the years ordered or bought lots of digital die cuts before the die cutting machines came out. I still buy die cuts from www.scrapyourtrip.com instead of owning a machine. Isn't this funny? Last week I had no chipboard (don't even own one piece) and everyone else had a stash, and these week I have lots of diecuts, and so far I'm the only one. I guess you can call me unique.

I had been storing my diecuts in their own Crop in Style Binder, but they weren't organized. Last night I began reorganizing them and putting them into themes in the binder. So much easier to find something that way. Still not finished but it's only Tuesday, so I'll finish sometime this week.

I'm just about finished organizing my die cuts and I thought I'd share how I did the organizing. This is the same way I did it with my stickers-they were all in Crop in Style PSB binders but were completely unorganized. I just loaded them in when I bought them.

I started by pulling them out of the storage pages and making piles of different categories. Next I used two plastic accordion folders and put yellow post-its with the categories written on them on different files in the folders. This was so if I didn't finish I could easily put the project away, instead of having piles of die cuts sitting out for days. I slid each pile of diecuts in their category in the files.

While watching TV I put the PSB binder on the coffee table and filled the binder with the die cuts that were resting in the files. This was great to do during commercials. It ended up being done very quickly this way instead of pulling one die cut out at a time and refiling it in the binder.

I am really loving this challenge and find myself coming up with new ideas for storage in my scraproom quite frequently, and reorganizing those places that haven't yet been done in this challenge. Instead of buying the storage product with high hopes first, I now think about what I am storing, how it can be stored the best and then going out and buying the container. Works a lot better this way!

PS I meant organizing those things in this challenge that I didn't finish or reorganizing those I did but in a different way that will work better for me. Everything is covered in this challenge as far as scrapbooking goes. It's been a great challenge.

Debbie, that sounds like a great way to store your die cuts!!
Right now, I have my die cuts sorted in with my colour baskets of embelishments but it's not working as those baskets are SO big!!

I do have one of the mini accordian files that might be perfect for these die cuts!! What kinds of categories did you sort your die cuts into??

Lisa - That is so sad I stopped watching scrap room tours on you tube as it seemed more like a "look how much stuff I have" vs "this is how I organize". I really think that once you get past a certain amount of stash that comfortably fits in your room, there's no way you can figure out what you have to actually use. But hey, their money spent and their room. I just couldn't watch these videos anymore.

Kris74-Thanks! My categories were:

Baby/Child
Nature
Travel
Art/Music
The Sea (separate category for this since the Sea is a big part of my life. Sailing especially, but also vacations)
Sports
Animals
Holidays
Miscellaneous

Mini accordion files would work but I was concerned that my die cuts would get mangled and bent (I am a terrible perfectionist). My Crop in Style PSB (Paper Sticker Binder) has been perfect for die cuts and stickers. It allows me to see what I have out of my stash very quickly by just scanning my eyes across the pages, and is also organized into the same categories.

They came out a few years ago and were very popular at the time. You can still buy the binders, but I'm pretty sure they don't sell the pages any more-although you can find them on Ebay.

Crisann-How is your porch project coming along? When times get tough just keep thinking what a fabulous room you will have soon.
