I wanted to try something new to help me use my dies and stamps more. So I decide to re-organize all my die cuts and stamp images into categories.
I purchased this rolodex from the dollar store for $4 and placed a small piece of paper in every page with stamped images on it, place into its category.
Again I don’t use my Slice die cutting machine as much as I wish I would, so I thought maybe if I put some of the die cuts into the rolodex under the categories to help me see and inspire me with ideas.
I have been using this system for a few months now and have found it be very helpful and inspiring.
Hope you enjoyed…
Thanks for looking 😀
June – what a busy month for us. It was all good! Saw some friends I haven’t seen in awhile, school has come to an end for another month, we went to a Blue Jays game and the boys were in full swing with playing ball.
Look what my son brought home from school during the last week. The smallest pencils ever, I just had to scrapbook these. Too funny!
Here are some pictures of the Open House or our new Church.
I mostly did 8.5″ x 11″ layouts and enjoyed doing them.
Thanks for viewing and hope you come back soon,
I have actually been doing some scrapbooking this week!!! Yahoo!!! I have been wanting to get these done for a while now. Some of them are from September last year, first day of school, Halloween, pumpkin carving.
First Day of School – working from my stash gives me so much joy. It is so nice to pick up products and page kits. The paper package that I picked up has everything co-oridinating pattern papers and embellishments that go so well together. Love working with paper package.
Halloween – I had bought a few sets of Halloween stickers from Michaels and have wanted to use them for a long time and finally I did this year. I know probably way too many used on this layout but I am so glad I have used most of them.
Pumpkin Carving – finally I have used my Debbie Mumm paper pack and embellishments. I received this as a Christmas present at least 2 years ago. Love Debbie Mumm’s style!
Homework Box – this layout was to show my son’s first homework assignment – to make a book box for his books and work at school. I used the same paper pack as the other school layouts I completed.
Learning to tie – this layout was done a couple of years ago, it was a make and take from one of the shows we went to. I thought I could make it work with the boys helping each other leaning to tie their shoes.
As I complete this week I am very happy to report that I didn’t purchase anything new, I scrapped from my stash.
Do you every wonder how you could display your layouts on your wall in a nice and decorative manner. This is what I have been doing to display my layouts.
I purchased a square frame (13x 13 appox.), paint the back board of the frame and glue a few pieces of light metal to the board and paint over the metal. Let dry and reassemble the frame. Buy a few small magnets and hang your layout on the board.
I bought my magnets from the dollar store and sometimes they are on a metal circle, that is what I glued to the board for the magnet to grab. To decorator your magnets a little I used some small white rub-ons. They look great!
This week was a”do what you like ” layout. I had fun with this lo, it was about the 100th day of School for my son. To begin with I stamped the background with different sized “100” with the same colour ink as the cardstock paper. I think it turned out great. I also started with my journaling which I don’t usually do. I also cut out some balloons that my son had coloured at school that day and added the “100” glasses he made. I think it turned out cute!
