Hello and welcome to another Storage Sunday! The summer arrived in Sweden along with July, can you believe it’s less than half of the year left? Crazy, and so is this heat. I went to IKEA with a friend today, not very nice getting into a car that has been parked in the sun for a few hours. Phew!
Anyway! I thought I’d continue with the same theme as Jennie chose last week; how to store scrapbooking projects or my way of doing so! I don’t really work with huge projects such as albums and such, I usually make cards which I finish of the same day I start them or maybe the day after. I rarely make more than one card at the time so my need for project storage is very small. However, I hope to make more albums and bigger projects in the future! When I was working on the album for my niece I did store the project related items separated from the rest of my stash so I will share this with you today. I think I might store future projects in a similar way.
For the album I kept all paper and other related things in this 12×12 box, there are still lots of pink paper in it, I haven’t really put it back in my stash yet. I also kept all embellies in a separate box I now use for stickers, bling and enamel dots. I found it easier to find things if paper and embellies were separated.
For the Becky Higgins weekend I ordered prints of a bunch of photos and now I keep them in a 6×6 box for future projects and layouts I want to make.
Other things related to projects or albums are memorabilia which I’ve been collecting for a few years in this archive folder. I have tickets to concerts, maps from citites I’ve vistited and other travel documents.
I think I have been saving travel tickets since I was a kid. I know my mom framed the ticket from my first flight alone, I don’t remember how old I was but I was a kid and I guess I’ve just kept going ever since. I’ve also kept cinema tickets and old bus tickets somewhere, I’m such a hoarder (or memory keeper). I’ve never been one for writing diaries but whenever I travel, I write something every day! Somewhere I still have old notebooks with travel diaries, I wonder where…
Anyway, this was a quite short post but I feel I don’t have much to share related to this kind of storage. I might have to adjust this as soon as I get my albums going but until then, one project box is just enough!
Stay safe and solid in this summer heat, drink a lot and enjoy the shadow!
