Something I Love

Through my many recent projects I have found a product that I love.  Undo Adhesive Remover!  This stuff is amazing.  I started using it while scrap-booking.  You stick a sticker to a page and realize that you want to move it.  No problem for Undo.  It not only removes the sticker with no harm to the paper or the sticker, but it also brings the sticker back to it’s original stickiness when it dries!  I have also used this to un-peal photos and other papers that I have stuck down with glue.

After using and loving this product on my scrap-book, I decided that it was worth a shot on other projects as well.  Yes, it can safely un-stick stamps, labels, and even gunk.  The possibilities are endless!  My next project involves a very pretty bottle of liqueur that I would like to remove the label from.  I want to leave the label in good condition to use for something, and also have the bottle sticky-free for use for something.  No problem for Undo, I’m sure.

I highly recommend for every do-it-yourself-er!

Scrap-booking Question

January 29, 2009 at 10:32 am (Scrap-booking) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have been scrap-booking since I was in high school. I love taking photos and loving preserving memories, so this is quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. Due to being extremely busy I quit scrap-booking for a few years almost completely. The other day I found some very adorable paper and was so inspired I have started scrap-booking again full force. (The paper was from Micheal’s, which I recommend!).

I have come across a small problem, however, that I am hoping you out there in the blog world can help me with. My supplies are currently stored in about 4 different boxes. I rummage through the boxes when I am in search of inspiration or the perfect color of paper. The are constantly getting messy and unmanageable. The boxes are not uniform, either, which makes them hard to store. I am such a neat freak that this is really bothering me. I have seen carrying cases for sale that are meant for scrap-booking, but they are ridiculously overpriced!

My dilemma: I am insearch of an affordable, possibly DIY solution to the scrapbooking mess!

Here are just a couple of my unruly boxes of scrapbooking materials.  I love the pink box, as it is an oversized gift box from Victoria's Secret, but the heavy materials are starting to demolish the box!

I was thinking that sticker sheets and paper might be categorized and sorted in some sort of accordion type portfolio folder (Wal-Mart even carries on in a black and white damask pattern!). But, the 12′ x12′ sheets of paper might not fit in one of those. What do you think? Suggestions?

Here is a glimpse of the pages I have completed recently. Any page ideas? If you would like help with your scrapbook just drop me a line about that as well! 🙂

P.S. It really is too bad that photos don’t do the details of these pages justice, as some of this paper is really gorgeous up close!
