If paper is your #1 organization challenge, scraps are probably #2.  To get you started WATCH this Scrap Management video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYF3h-lUTaI&feature=youtu.be There’s something about throwing scraps away at the end of a project that many of us struggle with. Before I go any further, I want you to answer 1 question – “If you took time to scrapbook a little bit everyday for the rest of your life, would you ever run out of paper?” I suspect the answer was uttered with a little bit of chuckle, a slight head shake, and a “Nnnno.” So, why are you digging through boxes, folders, baskets…of scraps?  Use the paper you have, use the paper you love and stop spending your time searching for a tiny scrap of paper. I’m not saying you should throw away all your scraps, I’m just saying you should be more mindful of the scraps you choose to…

Hello everyone, Tiffany Spaulding here from Totally-Tiffany. If you’ve been avoiding attending crafting events because the thought of packing up and unpacking is overwhelming, this blog post is for you. Having the right tools for organizing your supplies “on the go” will be a key to your success at a crafting event. These 5 tools will simplify packing for the event, crafting at the event, and unpacking when you get home. 1. Craft Crate with Apron How does it simplify the process of packing up?  Unlike many of the crop totes that are on the market, the Craft Crate isn’t loaded with dozens of pockets, zippers, compartments, and flaps.  There’s a few pockets and flaps, but not dozens. The apron around the Craft Crate was designed to hold all your basic tools so they are visible and accessible. You don’t have to remember where you put things because you can see everything.…

Hello everyone Tiffany Spaulding here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog excited to share you some tips and tricks on organizing your dies.  What you’ll need: A binder for creating a catalog Paper for the catalog sheets – I like 12×12 because I can get more on each page, but you can also use A4 or 8.5×11 Page protectors for the catalog pages Label Maker – optional Paper for creating each die sample Step 1 – Choose an organization tool for your dies There are many different types of die organizers; magnetic, boxes, binders, etc. Choosing the best die organizer for your dies will depend on where you craft.  If you always craft at home, you can use a desktop or shelf-type file box.  If you travel with your dies, a binder or bag will be a better option. 1-Binder – 3” Flippin’ Storage Binder with Medium Die &…

Getting from Containerize to Organized – Why You Need the 4 Section System and a ScrapRack Hello everyone, Tiffany Spaulding here today from Totally-Tiffany on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been helping crafters, specifically scrapbookers and card makers get organized for just over 15 years.  In that time one thing has remained constant, crafter’s whose supplies are visible and accessible – get more done, craft more often, use more of their stash, experience less frustration looking for supplies, enjoy attending more crafting events AND have a significantly easier time putting their supplies away at the conclusion of a project.  If you want to improve your crafting experience, it’s time to give up the “dig and search” for the “Flip and Find!” Your big question?  “How do I get my supplies visible and accessible?”  The answer is simpler than you might imagine – Embrace the 4 Section System Move your…

There’s Air In There – Maximizing Your Craft Storage Space at Home and Away Hello everyone Tiffany Spaulding here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The most important thing about maximizing storage is using ALL the space you have.  I know you’re thinking, “of course, I’m using the space, it’s full”.  But if you take a look around your room, your closet, even your crop tote, you may find that your space is filled with air. Open Shelving I started with this shelving unit from IKEA, it’s called Fjalkinge.  To maximize your storage space, you’ll want to fill that space from left to right, top to bottom and back to front – L2R, T2B, B2F – that means going vertical if you can and when you can. It’s easier to do than you think. If you have items sitting on your shelf that are different heights, you’ll have a…
