The saga continues...
If you are just started here, hold on a moment. This is part two of a long post. Go back and read the earlier post from today then come back here.
Once I got my own Scraprack system, I started filing all my "like" items together into the system as described on www.TheScraprack.com webinars.
Low and behold I am scrapping again!!!
This system really does work. Not only can I find things, but seeing everything together makes me think of new layouts to put together. I feel like I have a whole scrapping store at my convenience now because I can actually see what I have instead of trying to find things in closed up drawers and boxes.
I was so excited that this past summer I started a Summer Scrap your Stash Challenge on my blog. Everyday I posted a new prompt or idea to scrapbook about. I did not feel a need to go scrap shopping even once this summer because i could find everything I needed now. The best part, I got scrapping again. And not just once in a while but every single day this summer. I could actually find what I needed and got tons of cards and layouts completed. I even got around to finishing up some class projects from years ago that got filed away and forgotten. I even filled up two albums with all the pages I did this summer thanks to this new system of organizing. It really does work.
I love my original Scraprack. It is thin metal and folds up so I can take it with me to classes, or crops. (I teach scrapbooking) So I am absolutely loving the portability of this system. Once you get home you can set this unit back up and scrap again. I was getting tired of breaking it down and setting it back up, though. So back in June I figured I would build a more permanent unit to keep in my scrap room and keep my original for my Crop crate.
So now that I decided I wanted to keep this one for my travel bag, the dilemma of how to build a permanent unit came. I knew I wanted it made from nice wood. Something sturdy enough to hold lots of weight. But I am not great at cutting angles from wood, so I asked my hubby if he would cut the wood for me and I could build my own Scraprack. Like I said this was back in June. I would remind him every once in a while.
Just 2 days ago, he not only cut the wood but assembled this for me. It is 45 inches wide by 14 inches high and sits at a 30 degree angle.
Now to start up the fall session of the Webinars and to keep working on getting organized.
