Hey everyone, I am so happy to be here this week to help us use all that scrapbooking stash you have laying around. With all the CHA goodies coming out, I'm sure you're quite tempted to reach for your wallet and load up on new supplies, but how about we try and make a dent in the stuff we have already purchased?
I'm starting out the week with a post on organizing your stuff. For me, I totally forget what I have unless it's out in front of me. I try to keep myself organized so that I actually use those gorgeous products that I purchase. Here is a little peek into my scrap space.
I usually purchase kits, instead of individual supplies. I found that this helps me to actually use all my supplies before purchasing more. I keep my kits together in the drawers under my desk so they're easy to grab and use. When my kit is almost used up, I move my embellishments into these small baskets on my desk.
These baskets hold my journaling supplies and embellishments, so they are right at my fingertips. I try to go through these baskets every few months and clean them out. I always have a box for donating supplies handy.
Christine also sent some pictures of her very organized space. She said she's a firm believer in open storage so that she can see what she has and use it. She also keeps her most often used items near her work table so that seh has easy access to them. Both help her to use her stash!
How about a challenge to get our week started off? You have until Friday, Feb 22 at midnight, and I'll pick a lucky number. What's the challenge?
Use at least 3 older products to create a project of your choice tag, card, layout, mini, whatever you'd like and link us up to your project in the comments.
What will you get? How about a GC to Chic Tags? They have a great selection of tags and flair for you to pick from. The person chosen will get a $35 GC to spend on whatever they'd like.
Now, let's use up that stash to make room for more!!
