I love music! It's true! I have some of my current (and not so current) favorite songs on my blog! If you'd rather not hear any music, thats ok, i'm not mad at ya. Scroll down to the bottom to turn it off. Have a wonderful day!
Today the MTME design team is showing off an EXTREMELY versatile template called Keep It Organized. Here's a peek of what my immediate thought was when I found out one of the templates this month would be called keep it organized!!!!
Ok, so the above picture may seem random... but i keep EVERYTHING! It drives my husband nuts. I'm pretty sure it drove my mom nuts growing up. I just find sentimental value to silly things. And I keep them all! In little boxes here and there. And i'm going to guess since many of the readers of my blog are scrapbookers... there are at least a few of you out there that do the same thing!
In the picture above is a ticket to a band my husband and I saw one. Not even an important date, just kept the ticket anyway. The hotel key from our first getaway to Vegas. A picture of my hubby on the film set that we first "met" or at least got to know each other. A penny with an angel cut out of it that someone gave to me. The inserts to the bracelets i wore in the hospital when i had my boys. A fun ring i've just always liked and a medal i won i think in highschool. hahahaha. RANDOM! :D But oh so special. And how about that sentiment timeless treasures?! Perfect huh? It's from the Sign It stamp set. ;)
Well this new and fabulous template is perfect for storing all kinds of goodies in all different sizes. here's a view of the whole template, still packed with mementos. :D
You actually can't even see more of the stuff in there. All taken out of a random big box... this is such a prettier way to keep things! And i nicer way to see them and go thru them if you'd wish. :D The far back pocket is perfect to store 4x6 pictures as you can see and I have quite a few of in them in there. The middle pocket is where i did have my ticket stub, hotel key, along with a note someone had written me once that meant alot, some other ticket stubs and the like and also some foreign money left over from a trip.
And then the bottom drawer is filled with the things that are best tucked away and smaller. You can also see i drapped a necklace over the top. Jewelry fits perfectly in the bottle drawer, but if it's something special like this one (my friend Rachel made it, check out here other jewelry HERE), or if it's something you wear often so you want easier access, this drapping action is the perfect way to go!
But perhaps you'd like to see what the template looks like without so much "stuff" in it. :D
Well alright then!
The paper I used is from the new Fresh Cut Expressions Collection 1 pretty paper pack which is a digital paper pack. You buy and then just print the sheets you need as you need them! it's genius really!!!
Now be sure to check out the entire design team as everyone has a fantastic project to share with you today using this set! You are bound to see so many different ways to use it that it will boggle your mind!!! Have fun checking them all out!!!
I'm a mama to 2 awesome little dudes, Jack (6) and Gabe (3) and a wife to a wonderful man. My life is very full and I am richly blessed! I have been a professional makeup artist for a over a decade (holy crap!) but I just LOVE to stamp and scrapbook! So in February of 2009 I started my own stamp company called, what else but... Paper Makeup Stamps! I truly love everything that I do! In 2010 I started to also do a bit of photography and by the end of 2011 I was so blessed and busy with makeup and photo work, that PMS had to turn into a digi based stamp company and I had to resign from the design teams I felt so lucky to be on but I had to refocus my extra time on family. My postings on my blog may not be as frequent as they once were, but I'm still honored that you've decided to peek in!
