Catching Up On Scraps – with Jennifer Priest 4

Do you have any resolutions to get caught up on your scrap-booking or craft projects this year? I’ve started trying to carve out some time to create while simply watching TV or movies with my family. This mini album was created while watching the TV series Numb3rs on Hulu – we love watching series were never had the chance to get into! 

The formula for creating a “generic” album like this is as follows:
  1. Gather an assortment of adhesive – Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue for paper and difficult to mount embellishments, Tombow Foam Tabs to add dimension, Tombow Mono Adhesive Power Bond Runner for paper and ribbon.
  2. Gather papers and the base for the album (if you’re making an album and not just scrapbook layouts)
  3. Gather together embellishments you want to use, partially used packages of diecuts, and partially used sticker sheets. Make it a goal to finish off these packages while creating your projects. The less you have leftover, the less you have to put away (leading to a more organized space for 2013!)
I teach these tips in my The Organized Crafter online class, starting later this month at My Creative Classroom. I am all about keeping our crafty spaces in order so they can best assist us in creating. We’d love to have you join us on an Organized journey – click here for more info.
The book is rather generic so that it can be used later to be about anything–maybe the trip we took to North Carolina this summer or maybe about my grandmother. Or perhaps we’ll use it this year to catalog our trips! 

Full of details and random embellishments that just struck my fancy, this mini book is ready for anything I’d need it for. I made a little slide show showing all of the pages — there are all kinds of remnants from other projects as well as some new goodies from Maya Road!

What are your crafty resolutions this year?
