Cut the Scrap!

Yesterday, I spent my Mother's Day doing something I've been wanting to do since we moved in here...organizing my scrap area. There's still a lot of work that could be done as far as decorating and getting a couple new units for all my paper but for now, it's a workable space that I can use whenever I want to! HOORAY! I've never had that and I'm so looking forward to using it. Here's the two main parts of the area, I do realize that it still looks kind of empty but at least it's a start.

Here's the main area for storage of my supplies. I used my fantastic new Cricut to make all the tags you see on the boxes and storage bins. Didn't they come out cute?

Here's the close-up details. I'm especially proud of the box for my glue gun. It was a camembert cheese box and I measured it, set my Cricut to make a circle and it came out perfectly! I cut out the letters, the background for the letters and the star (just for fun) and it worked great. So easy and much craftier than camembert cheese. I just used scraps for all the tags and I'm really happy with the way it all looks. Now I just have to find the time to get down there and craft, craft, craft!
