Hi, everyone, it's Joan, with my first post for Clip It Up. I'm so happy to be part of this team because I love to scrapbook and organize!!
My scrap room is divided into areas for all the different projects I do, such as scrapbook pages, collage, card making, ATC's, sewing, etc.
One of the most difficult things for me to organize are photos. From carts to boxes to a large case with dividers, I've tried it all! Nothing worked well for me and my pictures ended up in piles on tables and the floor. I spent hours searching for the photo I needed for a layout.
Enter the Clip It Up Under the Shelf Rod and FINALLY - my photos are organized!!!
I used Clip It Up zip bags to group photos for scrapbooking by child (subdivided by their activities), nature, pets, etc. Any picture that I wasn't using for actual scrapbooking went into a photo album.
This is what the finished shelf looks like.
Now when I need a photo of my daughter, I simply pull out the bag and take out the picture I want. I love the Clip It Up Under the Shelf Rod and the new photo area I've created with it!!
I made the canvas on the shelf using a photo of my daughter. First I cut her out of the picture. Then I painted the canvas with gesso, let it dry, painted blue acrylic paint on the edges, then misted it with glimmer mist. Next, I layered patterned papers, lace, rhinestones, wings and flowers I cut from paper. The word Lovely was cut from my Revolution.
