Trying Those Mini-Books Again

I am so determined to learn how to do mini-books that I just keep going and going. Well here's another one from Winter CHA using Clear Album.

Here's a new Layout for Noel's Challenge. This is the most important part of my summer. The family reunions, family cookouts, in general our family.

Organizational Tricks: Having more space does not necessarily mean more organization. The important thing is to make the most of the space you have. With scrapbookers it almost always means being able to "see" your supplies.
***Clear plastic containers without lids,
***Wall units (Lisa and Becky Wall organizers are great as I can buy a piece at a time.
***Removing items that you do not use on a weekly basis. I've moved my XXL to my spare room as I only need it for crops.
***if you teach, organizing specific class, aka stamping, in plastic scrapbook containers so your basics are ready to go.
If you are a "collector" it is important to use it or lose it.

The more cluttered your room, studio, area is, the less productive you are going to be. Do you know how I know these things? I'm right in there with you.
