Organization | Project Life Storage

Today started a new year, and for a lot of people, that meant starting a new Project Life album – or even Project Life for the very first time! With Project Life comes a who new set of scrapbook things…which raises the question: how do I organize them?

One of the major motivators behind my reorganization was the need to store my growing stash of Project Life and other brand pocket scrapbooking supplies. These things simply did not fit in my previous system. What I came up with in my new space is a system with several components.

The major component in my new system is a plastic storage box from Close To My Heart. Their medium storage box, which retails for $16.95, has compartments that are the perfect size for holding 4×6 cards, and which have dividers that can be inserted to create sections perfect for 3×4 cards.

CHA Sneak Peek Highlights – Part 1

The sneak peeks are starting to trickle out (due to the way the holidays occur this year, don’t expect the avalanche until probably the week of January 6th). Despite the fact that relatively few are out yet, there are still some really great ones worth putting on your wish list already!

Amy Tangerine has knocked it out of the park – AGAIN – with her new “Plus One” collection. It coordinates with her previous collections, continuing the same palette and style while still somehow looking fresh. A plethora of small patterns makes this perhaps the most usable of all the Amy Tangerine collections to date.

Several items stand out from the collection. These flair badges are particularly appealing, very versatile and so workable for a huge amount of applications: Plus One Flair Continue Reading →
