WOYWW and Scrapbooking

Today on WOYWW I thought I show my problem area, my flowers. Nothing wrong with the flowers its the containers, you can work out there is a hook above them and usually there are thing hanging there and there's another to the left. When I need the stuff hanging somehow it knocks one of the flowers which then sends several crashing around me. Also when I need to plug in my heat gun again the flowers crash around me.
So just when my hubby thought I had enough really useful boxes it looks like I shall be collecting them again.

I'm doing a sketch challenge at the Scrapbuddies crop this weekend, I use one of Pagemaps sketches the one I used is actually in the archives. I make a layout so there's a real life one at the crop as well as taking the pic of the example from Pagemaps.
The papers are Bo Bunny Cambridge which I brought ages ago from Simon Says Stamps just needed time scrapbook with it. The swirl is Memory Box guess you'll be seeing that on a layout again, the A is cut on the cricut using Blackletter font. In the scroll is some journallling about the day the pic was taken.

 Last October Janet taught this layout at the crop she told us it would be quick, she lied I was making this, the whole time at the crop and it kept me quiet all day too.
I finally got around to finishing it but next day when I put the templates in the safe place I need to write a note to myself where that safe place is. Took me nearly a hour to discover it was in my pink bag pocket the whole time.
 Couple of close ups of the Snowmen, the bottom one had to be redone, when I made him originally I punched out the eyes with the same punch as his buttons but it made him evil looking, you can't have a demon looking Snowman now can you.

Great pages. I use rectangluar plastic kitchen containers with snap on lids, I pop all flowers into them in their colours. So when I want Pink flowers I just pull down the one container. Only problem is keeping track of the manufacturer. Sometimes it's a tradeoff!

This is GREAT Debby!!!! I went to an Auto parts store and got a plastic container that has compartments (like a fishing tackle box kinda) and I use that for my flowers! It is a double sided one, so they are ALL in is clear so I can see them! AND it has a handle!!! LOVE IT!!!!

I have a tall wooden set of drawers I got from a car boot for a tender it is not wide more cube shape and 8 drawers high I keep my flowers in that in the colour schemes works great for me as I just go to the drawer with the colour i need.

Any way layout is fab Hun

Beautiful LO's, I have that MB die too but haven't used it yet. Lots of pretty flowers, but the storage of these things sometimes becomes difficult. I've asked Hubby to make me a couple of shelves for more storage.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah dee by, I have stopped using the pockets on my tote for exactly that reason, how funny!! I love the LOs..I find at crop especially, the 'teachers' always lie about the speed for making stuff!! I think the flowers problem will be solved with a RUB.....and a resolution to use them up, ha ha !!!
