NEW 2017 CTMH Planner!

CTMH 2017 Planner

The 2017 Close To My Heart Planner is here! This year’s pages have a major difference from last year’s pages… they are colorable! That’s right, grab your markers and get creative with this combo coloring book/day planner.

This year, there are 3 choices for purchase, depending on whether you want a new album, or just need to add new pages to your existing album.

Discover your inner artist while staying on top of your schedule with our new 2017 planner system. Featuring seasonal designs you can color by hand, this exclusive planner system combines the worlds of work and play to give you a planner you can truly make your own. Choose a bundle with either the Everyday Life™ Sea Glass or stripes album, or purchase just the planner pages if you already have an album—the choice is up to you!

Craft Storage Ideas: Bead Storage

Today I am posting over at the Craft Storage Ideas website. Go and check out how crafty people are storing their supply of beads, both large and small. There is also a link to a great tutorial on re-purposing an old vintage trunk into craft storage.

Using Your Paper Scraps

paper scraps

If you are a scrapbooker, cardmaker, or all-around paper crafter, then you have probably amassed quite the collection of paper scraps.

In my collage above, I have shown some of the cards that I have made with my scrap pieces of paper. I keep all reasonable sized pieces of paper, as small strips of color, or tiny banners, can really add to a project! The majority of my scraps get stored in 12″ x 12″ bags, right along with the same color of full-sized sheets of paper. You can get a peek of that system here.

I recently came across an older article on Scrapbook.com that outlined 50 ways to use your scrap paper. You can check out all of the great ideas right here.
