Scrapbooking Organiser

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I put together the scrapping organiser by Kaisercraft.  You buy it as flat wood and then decorate it however you want and glue it together.  I used some papers from the Kaisercraft Base Coat collection and some Picket Fence distress paint.  In the drawer I am keeping memorabilia and some of my kids drawings, to be put into my album later.  In the sections I am keeping assorted 3×4 journalling cards and some 4×6 cards as well as photos that I have already printed.  I am also keeping some washi tapes and both a black and white pen.  In the larger back section I am keeping smaller alphas and some embellishment packs.  I am surprised by how much stuff I can fit in it and I am finding it really easy to pull stuff out and then put it away (which is always a bonus).  I also move it into my lounge room sometimes and work on my album in front of the Tv or get the kids to write on some of the cards.  If you have other ways of storing your pocket scrapbooking supplies I would love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by,

Kristy

A star stencil and home decor

Hi everyone,

Last weekend we gave my youngest son’s bedroom a little bit of a make-over.  Nothing too dramatic though.  He loves stars and planets as a result of watching Little Einsteins counting the planets in space to get Rocket to go to sleep.  So we added some glow in the dark stars, a new quilt cover and I re-did the pelmet.  I didn’t want to make a new pelmet so I had to work with the light blue fabric that was already there and cover over the areas that had previously had iron-on images on it (it was previously my other son’s bedroom).

I had some Adirondack Colour Wash Mist in Denim and so I just sprayed that over The Crafters Workshop Start Shower stencil in some of the areas.  I sprayed quite liberally since I wanted to get the darker colour and I wasn’t too worried if the images were not totally crisp.  I bought some fabric that matched the colours in the quilt.  I still haven’t decided if I will add some extra details or just leave the strips of colour plain.  Feel free to offer suggestions 🙂
