Good Morning SCT Friends!
As scrapbookers we are always collecting! We collect photographs, pieces of memorablia and most often lots and lots of products for scrapbooking. At the magazine, we are often asked for ideas on how to organize all of these products without having to spend too much money.
Today we share with you organizational ideas from Jeanette Smith, one of our readers. Jeanette has created a very functional craft room.
To create a desk Jeanette used a sheet of MDF, trimmed the front edge with baseboard and supported the two ends with shelving which she uses to hold larger items. Above her desk, she has homemade wooden boxes with removable shelves for her 12x12 papers.
For easy viewing and storage of her stickers and rubons, Jeanette hung up an old curtain rod with a bunch of pinch clips so she can quickly grab and return her items when finished with them.
For other items, Jeanette hung a piece of pegboard. Using different sized hooks, brackets and baskets, she is able to hang rulers, stamps, scissors, etc. and even organize her embossing powders while keeping them out of the way but still being able to reach them for ease of use.
Jeanette has other wonderful storage ideas that you can see on her blog here. Thank you Jeanette for sharing your organizational tips!
Today is also the July release of Colour Suite! This month Sarah Webb took on the Colour Suite challenge while Summer Fullerton has taken a much needed vacation. Here are this month's colours and Sarah's take on the challenge.
Most of the team is now enroute to Chicago for CHA, the Craft & Hobby Association conference and trade show. While they are gone, we are going to have some fun! We recently hosted a party on Facebook to celebrate 12,000+ fans. During this celebration, we had such an amazing outpouring of love that we actually hit and then quickly passed 13,000+ Facebook fans! So, while the SCT team is away, we are going to do what we do best ... THROW A PARTY!!!!
