Organize your Stuff: Week 8 (round 4): Projects, Pages, and Kits part 1

Here is our Tuesday Trio layout for this week: Sketch #68, New Beginnings. This card was made using BoBunny paper that Creative Me received in the May Heartstring Designs’ Kit. It was already cut to 6 x 12 and we did not know what to do with it! But ta-dah! It is done!

 It is kind of like Willy Wonka (the non-Johnny Depp version) with bubbles, bubbles everywhere and not a drop to drink… but like Charlie and Uncle Joe, we cannot resist and a few Fizzy Lifting Drinks and before you know it the Inner Hoarder has amassed a small…ok not so small… stash of stuff that just never seems to make the page. It is not that it isn’t good stuff, it is just that the Inner Hoarder cannot find the right layout…or in the heat of the moment goes out and buys even more stuff that is “just perfect” for that layout.

The other thing that Creative Me seems to amass is piles of un-journaled layouts (to be honest it is because OCD Me is paranoid and does not want the POW to disclose too much about our family…but seriously-we have a blog!). That and PA Me just gets us distracted by the time we have to put in the journaling! We tackled a bunch of them today. Now we mostly have Iraq layouts that just need journaling from Fabulous Spouse.

Finally, we have the Scrapbook Store Projects! Creative Me has a bunch- that are just lacking photos! Why is it that we never seem to take enough 3x3 and 4x4 photos to use in these projects? Due to space constraints, The POW made a rule two years ago that Creative Me could not take a class unless she finished a class project…so we have not taken a non-CKC weekend class in 2 years…hmmm.

In the arena of projects, hoping (cross my fingers) to get more 2007 Iraq layouts done by this weekend (as it is Memorial Weekend). Wish us luck!

Love your card and the thread wrapped flower. Your shelves look so neat and tidy. I have a ton of layouts that are put together but lack photos - either from classes or just from playing and not having an idea for the photos. One day, I need to just slap some photos down and get them done! :)

Yes, I have allowed my Inner Hoarder free reign the past few weeks, so now I have enough supplies and no excuses. Lovely card!

Your split personalities crack me up! LOL! Your card is cute and I love your space!!! My inner hoarder is getting frustrated with the hoarding. Purged stickers last night and now have a STACK of 'move 'em outs!'

Such a pretty card.
Love all your cubbies.
I have the opposite problem, I journal too much :) I talk to much as well, but thats another problem, teehee.
