Scrapbookers are notorious for having too much stuff. We buy things because they are just too cute or it is the latest fad. I wish I had a nickel every time someone said I have too much stuff already and I can’t move on until I use what I have.
There are so many pictures out there not going into albums because people have to use the scrapbook material they already have. Remember, the pictures are the most important thing. After many years of accumulating supplies I have now become a minimalist. I only buy what I am using for the project at hand.
With that said, there is stuff we need to store. I was a Creative Memories Consultant so I do recommend their products but there are also many other vendors out there with quality products.
But here are my top organization items:
1. Scrapbooking Tote –
The tote I use is over kill but I can’t live with out it. I am not kidding you when I say I can put everything in it. I went to a crop where I actually unloaded all of my supplies and then a bottle of wine. People said it reminded them of Mary Poppin’s carpet bag. What I think you need is a big enough bag to carry your album, tools, embellishments and paper to a crop. If you can get down to one bag you have won!
