Say hello to Linda!

Hello, everyone! Today we have another new design team member to announce and some more fun crafty storage ideas!

We are so thrilled to have Linda Barber on our team. She is amazing, and we are just so lucky to have her!

I've been scrapbooking in one way or another since I was kid. Back then, I was cutting stuff out of magazines and glueing them onto a spiral notebook. We are talking pictures of soccer stars (I grew up in Brazil, we like our soccer there) and matinee idols! I started scrapbooking in a more modern way about seven-ish years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I live in Los Angeles with my hubby, my three sons (13, 11, 6, and yes, our house is very active and noisy!), and ginormous amounts of scrapbooking supplies, yarn, and travel books. You can find my scrappy work in Creating Keepsakes' magazine where I'm a Dream Team member, or on my blog.

You must head on over to her blog! http://milesofpaper.blogspot.com/
You will love it!

Here are some really fun storage ideas from Chari!

Her buttons are on a 24 inch shelf on the wall in little jars and she stuck her stickles to the bottom of her shelf using black self stick velcro.  She stuck one side of the strip to the underside of the shelf and then cut circles out and stuck the other side to the bottom of her stickles bottles. 


 Her Copics are stored in square pencil cups she found at Target.  Each cup came divided into four compartments.  She turned them on their side to sort her Copics by colors.  She eventually made a little wedge shaped piece out of foam core to put them at a slight angle (so they would stop falling out when she grabbed one!) 

  She also has some clear jars she found at Michael's that she keeps some things in on the back of her desk.  All her twine is wound on old wooden spools she bought off Etsy, this works great to keep them from getting in knots. 
Her stamps are in a fabric covered bin from Target. It's the perfect size for Lawn Fawn stamps, and she have dividers separating them.

Thanks so much, Chari! These are great ideas!

Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
