Kaisercrafts Sketch Saturday

If you are a fan of using sketches as starting points for your layouts you might want to check out the Kaisercrafts blog. Saturday is sketch day and that's when a new sketch is uploaded (but no new one today-they are away at CHA in America.) If you use a sketch don't forget to upload it to the Kaisercrafts gallery and you could win the monthly prize.

here's a layout i did using the last sketch:
Those wee cakes are very cute!!

Getting organised..

So this year I am hoping to become a more organised person- a 'place for everything, and everything in it's place' person. I have made some small inroads- found this flickr group for a start. It's pretty inspiring! And I have tidied my cutlery drawer, and my 'electrical' drawer where I keep bits and pieces to do with cameras, and computers etc, and a couple of other drawers etc. But the truth is my least organised space is my scrap space. So I thought I would organise my stamps-again! About two years ago I organised my stamps into CD boxes-you can read about it here.
However this system stopped working for me as I acquired more stamps. I found I was upending the whole box trying to find the CD box I was looking for. So last weekend I stamped and laminated and now most of my stamps are in this ringbinder.
Now I can just turn the pages until I see the image I want-and I can find the stamp on the back. Each laminated sheet is kept in a plastic pocket-the kind with the side opening, so nothing can fall out of the top! I think this is a pretty neat system, don't you?

Wanna win...

...this fantastic prize?

Then head on over to THE CREATIVE TYPE and take part in Challenge #24.

These two fantastic colour kits from Gauche Alchemy can be yours simply by taking part in the latest challenge at The Creative Type!
Here is my take on the Challenge:
I love doing layouts for The Creative Type -I can have fun, muck around and get messy! What you can't see in this photo is that the whole layout is covered by a piece of acetate that has been sprayed with glimmer mists, so the whole thing looks misty and rainy!

Another Christmas Layout...

Yes I know Christmas is over, but that's when we have all those Christmas photos to scrap, right?
So here's a simple layout using Graphic 45 papers from Scrapbook Sisters. I think this is my favourite of the Graphic 45 layouts.

Christmas Layout

Another Christmas layout using Graphic 45 papers from Scrapbook Sisters. I really should get some more of that blue paper-it'd be perfect for scrapping all the pictures of snow I've taken recently. The snow has ben unbelievable -today it was thigh high in some places where I walked. Have a look at some of the photos on my photo blog-the link is on the right hand side bar.
