Favorite Things Friday~Crafty Storage Items

For those of you just finding our Favorite Things Friday post.. the reason behind this is so that we all start to take a look at the things we already have and to really appreciate what we have.  So many of us get caught up in needing or wanting to buy more craft items.. when really we already have a lot and we are making do with what we have.  I think if we share what our favorite things are, we might get inspired to use that tool if we have it, or look for new ways to organize our items.   We might realize we have what they shared & didn’t think it was a big deal.. but now you might look at it differently.   This also gets us taking pictures of objects instead of people and we might make a few new friends along the way.  I love to see what people have and what is important to them.  This is a great way to see it.  Please share this post with your friends and invite them to share their favorite thing.

Hi I am Rebecca, I am a marketing coordinator by day and covert scrapper by night! If a day goes by without at least 15 or 20 minutes of creative time I feel completely discombobulated (is that even an official word?). I’m an obsessive blog reader, and when I’m not on the computer or playing in my scrap stash, I’m probably watching “White Christmas” (even if it’s not Christmas time).  

 

Rebecca has an awesome blog, called Enjoy Life, please stop by and follow her page & say hi.  You can also find Rebecca keeping us up to date with the latest storage ideas over at Craft Storage Ideas.  I met Rebecca at the Summer CHA and had a blast hanging out with her, I am happy to say I have a new crafty and fabulous friend.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi there!! I’m Laura Cox, and I’m excited to be here at Scrap It Girl on the DT!! I’ve been crafting and paper crafting since I was a little girl…..always loved recycling something into a new work of art! My fave type of projects are altered projects and card making, but I like to scrap too! I am always on the lookout for a fun new technique to try (or a new tool to buy!) and I never met an embellishment I didn’t like!

My two DS’s and my DH indulge this “little hobby” of mine whether it’s adding to my stash, a DT deadline I need to meet, or mapping out entire vacations around scrapbooking locales…lol. I love to remind everyone to take the “me time” to craft at least a little every week and to appreciate your own work….every item you make is a work of he”ART”!
Stop by Laura’s blog and become a new follower, she is always posting her creative “ART”.   You can also find Laura designing for Hannah’s Home Accents, we are on that design team together and have known each other for a while now.. she is so darn nice & a great friend.

Favorite Things Friday: 4 Great Sites!

How many of you spend hours a day on-line looking for challenges, great storage ideas, design team calls or a place where you can go for a crop?  I did, I would spend hours looking at different sites.  I would get caught up on something else and 3 hours later, I forgot what I was doing.  Now I just check out a few of my favorite sites every day and I feel like I am up to date with what’s going on.  I am aware of the newest products, sneak peaks, challenges, all the design team calls, latest storage ideas, and I know what’s going on as far as classes in my home state.  My secret?  Easy, I just follow, stalk, and frequent these 4 sites.  With these 4 sites, you will get all the info you need!

    

I am a huge fan of getting the information I need quickly, so that I can spend more time creating, applying, organizing, or attending a class.

If you are not going to CHA this year, no worries PaperCrafter’s Corner  has been giving us sneak peeks and keeping you up to date with the latest CHA news.  This is my go to site for a quick update on what’s going on.  I read the industry related articles, check out the giveaways, and find out who is having a sale.    This is also the site that lists all of your events for FREE, yep, my classes are listed on this site, for free.  You can also use this site to look up your state to find out what is going on in your area.  You will be surprised to see how many scrapbooking stores are located just in your state.  Check out the interactive map on the PaperCrafter’s Corner site.

I love going to ScrapChallenge.com  since that is the first place I go to place my own monthly challenges.  I also take a peak to see if there is a challenge or contest I can enter.

Looking for a new storage idea for that collection of washi tape or twine?  Check out Craft Storage Ideas, I have found so many wonderful ideas.  I also like to see the fabulous rooms that other people craft in, I get inspired to reorganize my own craft-room.

My favorite site of the four is Design Team Calls.  This site is just full of great info.. it’s your one stop shop~  Full of great interviews, insider tips and advice!   I love how organized the site is and how much info I can get from one place.   Some of my favorite things to read are the articles pertaining to the designers, behind the scene news,  and the advice given by the craft professionals.  Of course the name of the site is Design Team Calls, so I do like the up to date listing of all design team calls.    You are able to get a lot of information from this site for FREE, however for more information or the “inside news” you can pay a small fee and become an “insider”.  I have an insider membership which gives you even more great information and a complete list of design team calls.   I have no problem paying a tiny fee when I see how often I actually use the site for all the inside goodies.  For a 6 month membership as an “Insider” it is only $9.90.   Seriously that is what I spend a day at Starbucks.

I strongly encourage you to check out all 4 sites, follow them and get on their email list.. you will save so much time. My favorite way to stay connected is through their Facebook pages, I literally check them out every day!   It’s the best way for me to get a quick dose of what’s going on in the crafting world.

Well, there it is.. my Favorite Things Friday…4 wonderful sites.

Now for a GIVE A WAY.. I will be giving away a 6 month membership to become an insider for the Design Team calls site.  Leave me a comment letting me know which of these sites are your favorite, or if you are new to them, let me know which one you think will be more useful to you.  Stop by all the sites and become a new fan… Have a great weekend~ I will announce a winner to the 6 month membership on July 27th.. so you have 2 weeks to enter.
