I am a saver of scrap paper. I cannot bear to throw away the smallest scraps. I know that’s kind of OCD , but I have always felt a responsibility to Mother Nature to use as much as possible. So I keep the little shreds of paper. So, this page has used some of my scraps to make a simple three photo layout. When you are designing your pages, think about the resources that you might have laying about.
Who days that you need an album to store your photos. Here is a really cute explosion box that would be cute to make as a gift for Christmas or to make for yourself.

Photos, especially if laying around your drawers or in those dreaded magnetic albums, are prone to get dusty and get smudges. WE all share them by passing them around and handling them. So, keep a small piece of flannel or a dry baby wipe around to wipe the smudges and dust off your photos before you scrap them.
Do you have any plastic pill organizers sitting around your house unused? They make perfect storage for sequins and half beads. I use lots of these on my scrapbook pages and other paper craft projects. I like to keep them handy and needed a way to keep them all handy on top of my desk.
I saw the pill organizers and decided to try to use them to store my beads and sequins. One of them had little drawers to organize multiple daily doses. It was easy to convert it simply with my label maker.
Another one that I had did not have any advertising, so all I did was glue one of the embellishments on the top of the tops of the container.
The third one, I covered with washi tape. I took one inch pieces and glued them top of the lid. Then I covered some advertising with another strip of washi. The washi wouldn’t hold on without the glue. Then I added a sample of what was in the container. I was satisfied with the results.
I know that organizing your craft space is a chore. But honestly if you have invested in tools as I have, it’s important to keep your tools in good condition. Todays product of the week is an organizer for your colored pencils. I am excited to share this item because when you store your pencils in this holder, you will have less chance of them breaking. They are also very visible, so you can organize them in there color families. At under $11, I have to strongly recommend this product as a perfect pick of the week.
If you are using rubber stamps, and get glitter on them, you can use cellophane tape to remove the glitter from your stamps
