Organize your Stuff: Week 20 (round 3): Die Cuts Part 2

One of the things that Creative Me loves about this Organize your Stuff Challenge is creating a Layout that showcases what it is we are organizing. Sometimes it is easy, and sometimes it is more of a challenge. Using the Cricut is easy (see last post). However, using my meager stash of premade die cuts that now live in a half filled 12x12 Iris Clamshell (The POW is seriously thinking of buying stock in Iris as we seem to use these clamshells A LOT)...not so much.

So, back Creative Me went to the Wild Asparagus die cuts that are still languishing in die cut Limbo, and finally took them out of the darkness and walked them into the light. Really a little unsure what to do with them, we pulled up our 2 peas website and used our die cuts to complete the Calendar Girls January scraplift challenge for page 2 of the two page layout. The rest just sort of came together!


As for the Cricut Cartridges…OCD Me had grand plans for them. However, Girl Friday had grand plans for an Elephant Family mini album (she has many many stuffed elephants), and PA Me was more than happy to make sure that Girl Friday and Creative Me got quality time together, especially if meant no organizing. However, the POW was not going to let PA Me get this week too sidetracked and snuck OCD Me the label maker, so that OCD Me could feel like some progress was made… even if it was not much. Now all the Cricut Cartridges are labeled and restacked in their cabinet, a little more organized.


Just in case you were wondering… PA Me and the Inner Hoarder were laughing until they got stitches in their sides and totally unattractive snot bubbles came out their noses while watching the POW hold OCD Me back during Girl Friday’s creative time. While Creative Me was encouraging Girl Friday to use acrylic paint and glimmer mist, OCD Me was ready to go all Mommy Dearest with a coat hanger. LOL! It is amazing how used one gets to staying in the lines and matching papers so the edges match just right… this was much more…organic… yes, we will go with that…organic. Nobody got hurt, even when Girl Friday used the paper piercer to get xyron glue boogers out of her Cricut letters… (although the POW did have to practically sit on OCD Me when Girl Friday put the letters on the pages all catty wompus ) Here it is in all of its 6 year old creative glory. Now the POW has to unload the digital camera as Illusive Middle Child now wants a mini album too…(except his will be legos, not elephants). Wish us Luck! See you on Tuesday for Week 21: Pens and Pencils.
