As part of bringing back the Simple Tip Saturday series, I wanted to offer fresh voices into the mix. Today we’re hearing from Simple Scrapper team member Delanie Wood with her simple tip.
What is one way you simplify scrapbooking?
When I sit down to scrapbook I keep my notepad in easy reach, writing down any supplies I’m lacking or can’t find.
What problem does it solve for you?
Keeping a list of scrapbooking supplies that I reach for but don’t have, or that I’m running low on, helps target my scrapbooking shopping by identifying products that I need and use. I may have 10 pieces of different blue patterned paper but if they are all bold patterns and I’m reaching for a subtle tone-on-tone, I know which I should and shouldn’t buy next time I’m shopping.
The items on the list can also help fine-tune my organization by showing how I use and think of different products. If I was searching for a blue subtle patterned paper, I know my patterned paper should be organised by color, not manufacturer or florals and geometrics.
Why do you think it works so well?
It’s quick, easy and helps me justify buying a few more supplies.
How can others get started with it?
Grab a notepad the next time you sit down to scrapbook, or your phone if your prefer your tech, and when you reach for a supply you don’t have, just write it down.
Simple Tip Saturdays are for sharing easy ideas to grab and run.
