Spring Cleaning Scrap Supplies

Spring is finally here! When you live in a harsh winter climate like I do, spring is big news, perhaps you even still have snow! If cleaning out your scrapbooking supplies is part of your spring cleaning, here are some simple tips to get you started.     I am currently trying to get my studio working for me, rather than against...

Take Inventory
Go through all of your supplies. Look through all the bins, jars, drawers and cabinets holding your scrapbook materials. As you look through them decide what you should keep, sell, donate or toss.

Organize Your Stash
For those items you want to keep, evaluate whether your current organization method is working. Can you easily find what you are looking for? If not, invest in a few new storage organizers.  I personally am visual and love to have my supplies in the open and available.

Selling Supplies
You loved that page kit with the cute kittens on it at one time, but 3 years later you know it’s never going to make it onto one of your layouts. Still, someone may love that kit.   For items that are still in the packaging and in new condition, try selling them on ebay, craigs list, a garage sale, or in a scrapbooking forum. Scrapbooking supplies often sell well in lots.    I personally donate a ton of my product to my Children's Christmas Store.

Letting Go - pass them to your kids!
Now for those items that you should toss. It’s hard to throw things away, but seriously, those stickers you’ve been collecting since the beginning of your scrapbooking days are faded and no longer have any stick to them. Pass them to your children. Scraps of cardstocks that are now crumpled and faded should also go to your kids. Yes, maybe you could come up with some creative way of using them, but will you?

Cleaning out your supplies will give you some much needed space in your scrapbooking area. What will you do with that empty space? Sounds like a good reason to go shopping to me!

Paper Finishes

The following page is a basic guide to paper finishes. The word "finish" essentially means the treatment of the surface of the paper. In other words a paper may feel very smooth or it may feel rough. It is that texture or "finish" that we are referring to.
Library of Finishes
What we have provided here is a simple definition with some notes on how to identify the paper when you see and touch it. In addition we have included a few notes on what it can be used for and its limitations. There are also scanned samples of papers (enlarged so you can really see the finish). If you see a * sign then you should drop to the bottom of the page where there are some terms defined. If there are other words used that you do not understand then you can jump over to the Paper Term Dictionary.

Studio J

Do you like to try before you buy? Play before you pay? Me too!

Studio J, our "digital" scrapbooking program is set up so that it costs you NOTHING to play all you want with your photos, our templates and digital papers. You can go to my website HERE starting now, upload your photos and start experimenting and getting used to how Studio J works. You can place your photos where you want in our virtual papers and templates and change the colors of the brads, buttons, hinges, etc. along with add or take away the stickease and other decorations.

I have done several pages and took my time getting them just right before telling Close to my Heart to print them and send them to me. There is nothing to download, no program to buy! Your layouts will be saved for you for 90 days so that gives you all that time to really try out the studio. And you know what else? This isn't just a trial period either, it's like this all the time. You never pay a cent until you are ready to have your pages printed and sent to you. How's that for easy and fun?

If you do decide to buy there is a special!

You may purchase each two-page layout for just  $14.95 CAN. Also, when you place a single order for 5–9 layouts, you'll receive a pack of 5 Memory Protectors FREE! For placing an order for 10 or more layouts, you'll receive FREE shipping/handling plus a FREE pack of 5 Memory Protectors for every 5 layouts in the single order.

So set aside a little time and pick out some of your digital pictures to upload to my site and try out Studio J.
