“Hi Graphic 45 fans, Pam here today! I am so excited to welcome you to my creative I hope you are excited to see my creative space because it has come a long way from when I first started scrapbooking 19 years ago and used my dining room table. I will share a few organizational ideas that work for me! I am sure some of my ideas you will love and others you will think I love what I am doing right now. Just remember though it is not where you how you store your stuff or where you create but that you have fun!” Pam
I like to have stations in my studio…i.e., stamping, die cutting, painting, etc. It just makes it easier to for me to find my stuff.
I love to have different containers and textures for storage from canvas tubs to galvanized tins to boxes and jars.
Keep some of your favorite projects on display. They will always keep you inspired when creating.
Always…Always…Always Be True to Your Creative Style!!!!
HOLD ON TO YOUR HAT FOR THIS ONE…. I always clean my spaces up between projects. I really mean I clean them up…I put everything away between projects even my adhesive runner, lol. I think this comes from being raised with a Drill Sargent Dad that always told us to clean as you go, lol.
Expedite Shelving Center is fabulous for lots of storage
Page Holder for all my fabulous Graphic 45 Paper
Metal Storage Shelf to contain my Graphic 45 Metals, Tags, Envelopes, Inks, etc.
Metal contains to place them in.

Create small mini albums ahead of time to place those special moments in when you are ready.
Adding pockets and hidden pockets behind mats will give added space for photos and journaling.

Haunted Vintage Trailer Carousel

“ I love Graphic 45 and all of their fabulous products… SO when I saw the Rare Oddities Collection I was so inspired and knew I would be making my Halloween centerpiece from it!!!
I also knew I would be using Eileen Hull's Vintage Trailer Die!!!”

Tip: To add dimension to your flower: Ink edges of petals; roll each petal on a soft mat using a stylus. Bend petals with tweezers, layer together and secure with brad. Mist lightly with water. Make sure to squish slightly to give a scrunched up look. Allow to dry completely before placing on your projects.
