15 Minute Friday


Once again I have allowed my magazine subscriptions to get out of hand.  So now I'm in the process of ripping out layout ideas from each of the magazines.  

I am using the 15 minute principle to get this project done.  Whenever . . . wherever I can steal a few minutes you will find me with a magazine in hand ripping pages.  For example, if I'm watching a television show with my little one I grab a magazine.  While I watch him play in the tub I'm also ripping out LO/sketch ideas from the magazine.  Heck the other day I took 2 magazines with me to the park.  So while DS played with his little friends I kept one eye on them and the other eye on the magazine.  LOL. 

Once I've selected the LOs/sketches I want to keep I then place them in a page protector and organize the page in one of the 3 ring binders pictured below.  You may find more information about the binders here and here.
As a way of saving precious real estate on my bookshelf I am considering altering a wall mounted file holder like the one pictured below.  Besides, the less space I have to save magazines the less likely I am to hoard them.  :-)

Cindy . . . can't wait to see what you create with the goodies.

McVic . . . a $ saving idea is to use wallpaper samples. Stores like Lowes/Home Depot routinely toss out their old wallpaper books & are more than happy to give them away. Glad my ideas are making your craft place a little cuter! :-)

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
