My favorite organizer!

Hello Everyone!
Becky here with you today to share my favorite organizational item in my craft area....and it is this box! I got it at a big box craft store, but I'm sure you can find something similar in other places.

It is advertised as a storage system for organizing your 4x6 photos, with 16 clear cases inside....but I LOVE to use it for my embellishments!

here is my box all packed up and FULL of goodies...all organized in rainbow order of course!

I've got my cases divided into: Red/Burgundy, Orange/Peach, Yellow, Lime Green, other Greens, Teal/Aqua, Blue, Purple, Pink, Brown, Black/Grey, White, and Cream as well as boxes for Clear, Metal, and Wood Veneer to fill up all 16 cases! I labeled each with my label maker.

When I open a package of embellishments I just divide what is inside the package into their specific colours and add them to their box....These boxes seem to be mostly full of buttons...I love buttons!!!!
Take a peek inside a few of the boxes!

Each box has a clasp to close it up tight and the whole box closes up nice and snug to hold all my goodies. I love to take this with me to crops...it keeps everything right at hand.

You could easily add a spool of bakers twine in a corresponding color to each case as well!
As papercrafters I'm sure I don't have to tell you to find creative ways to organize your 'stuff' and to look at organizers that aren't necessarily made for scrapbooking, but I wanted to share one of my favorites with you.
What is your favorite organizational item in your scrap room???

Fall Family mini album

 Hello friends!

I got to switch things up this month and instead of playing with the Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook as I usually do, I got to play with the super fun Album Kit!

The November Album kit features the Sweater Weather collection from Simple Stories....which is just SIMPLY ADORABLE!

I had a ton of amazing photos from this fall of our family and the kids in the leaves as well as our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner so I was so excited to get to play with this kit! The hard part was choosing which photos to include and which photos had to be left out.


 The kit comes with 6 chipboard album pages and 2 binder rings. I prefer to use my binding machine to hold it all together so I just adhered my paper over the holes that came in the chipboard and ran it through my binding machine instead.
