Organization anyone ?!?!

We all are looking for new ways to stay organized in our scrap spaces right ?!  Well this post is all about my new way of organizing all my Bella Blvd. paper, stickers and chip shapes ..... This was featured on the Bella Blog the other day but I wanted to share it here for you as well - ENJOY !!

I've wanted to use one of these great wooden 'milk' crates for some time now but wasn't sure how I was going to fit it into my scrap space. I've been wanting to do some re-organizing of my Bella paper and bits and found that this crate was the perfect size.

I immediately got out all my Designer Tapes and started covering the slats. For the grey and gulf on the top I added a layer of Mod Podge as this will be a pretty high traffic area. Once I had all the slats front and back covered I traced the ends using some freestyle sophisticates and adhered them to each end and on the inside as well.

I covered over this with a layer of Mod Podge as well. To make sure that my paper envelopes didn't fall through the openings in the bottom of the crate and cut 2" wide strips of more sophisticates and adhered them vertically inside to create a real base to sit my paper packs on top of.

I had some leftover Bella fabric ruffles from my stool project so I adhered this to the front using my hot glue gun. I tied twine through some wooden buttons and adhered them onto some Blooms a Bella and put them on the left to cover the seam of my fabric ruffle. See if I didn't tell you, I bet you wouldn't have noticed.

Then I sorted all my Bella Blvd by collection into plastic envelopes. I have always kept it flat in paper trays so it was already organized but I added the Just Write Journaling Stickers and the Alpha+Bits as well as the coordinating miniatures and Chip Shapes too. I used my label maker to title each package with the collection/collections that are inside. This way I can easily find a full line and just have to turn to my embellishment storage for the flags, buttons, tapes, etc. EASY and I LOVE how it came together.
back and check it out !!

TFL ..... Talk soon.
