Every now and then, I get the eye and a brief lecture on how to tidy up my scraproom. Did I just say “scraproom”?! Are you joking me?! It’s more like our whole house is a scraproom, haha! Well, minus the kitchen. A girl can’t help the mess when this has become her full-time job! At this rate, a bigger place is sounding like a must. 😉
I need space for cardstock. Then, I need space for the pretty patterned papers. And you can’t forget all of the embellishments, ribbon, punches, pens, alphas, tools, etc.! Oh, and I forgot to mention that I need room for scissors and paper trimmers. It’s a never ending list, I tell ya.
…so what do I do with all of those supplies? I create, of course!
These next two layouts were designed for my LSS, Memories Live On. They gave me some of the latest products from Sassafras Lass, and they requested me to make a couple of layouts for display. I LOVE the bright colors to these collections!
Layout #1: Yes, I used a MS punch… so sue me! I like EK Success punches, just so you know. 😉 …and this layout is also a reminder that you only have a couple more days to get your project submitted in for the latest challenge over at TAAFOMFT. It’s all about your favorite memory. 🙂 By the way, that’s not real stitching; I used Kiki Art‘s funtape. It’s like no other decorative tape I’ve ever used! It doesn’t rub off, and it doesn’t rip when you try to use it! It’s a definite MUST-HAVE!
Layout #2: Scrapping the Music‘s current song is “Better Way” by Ben Harper. It’s one of Gloria’s favorites, so I had to give it a go. I used a line from the song as my inspiration to scrap this one. To top that, I made this layout in honor of Julie. What do ya think, Boss?! 😉
After I finished making these layouts, I left a stack of Sassafrass Lass over there by the stack of Imaginisce, which is by the stack of Kiki Art, which is by my bind-it-all, which is by the Urban Swank stuff, which is by another stack of supplies that was given to me by my LSS to design with. See… I’m not joking about the supplies being all over the place! A bigger house is lurking its way towards the top of the priority list. 😉
Anyway, I read this somewhere, and every time I get the eye or a lecture about tidying up the scrap stuff, this is going to be my excuse:
Creative minds are rarely tidy.
It can’t get any better than that. 😉 I rest my case.
