Classroom Bulletin Board - World Map

The 1st grade classroom bulletin was based on Hispanic Heritage Month. Each student was assigned a country.  They decorated their dolls based on their country theme, researched the country such as the capital, foods, clothing and presented it to their class. 
The world map is 23 inches. I cut the world map using the Cricut machine and a svg file. I created the svg file using the "trace" method. For security reasons (children's name) I could not post the entire bulletin board.  The flash would not turn on due to the large window and bright sun behind me.  This was the best picture I could take.

Thank you for visiting!

Project Life Cards, Organized - Containers

Journal Cards / Project Life / Filler Cards, Etc.
(in progress - I need to add a few more tabs)
I purchased 3 containers from Target in late 2012 or early 2013. I love the locking lids for transporting to scrapbooking retreats. The Measurements are 16 x 23".  They hold a twice the amount of the CTMH Medium containers. I have a mixture of 3x4", 4x6" cards and a small amount of 2 1/2 x 3 3/4" for my 8 1/2" x 11" scrapbook album. They are organized in several ways: Color, Theme, Brand, etc. There are 4 rows and I've used plain boxes from our pantry, cell phone boxes and 2 acrylic trays from M's to organize and hold the cards. 

I typed the titles in Microsoft Word, printed on bright cardstock (easier to locate the tabs) and punched out the title using this punch.

Another view of the container with the lid.

Updated - adding 2 photos below.

Grid Cards for Journaling

DCWV Everyday Essentials Paper Stack
8 1/2 x 11" Paper Pad, 180 sheets, 40% off at Joann's. I love the variety of grid lines in different colors especially for our children's scrapbook albums. The paper is thinner that I prefer but it will work.

WRMK 12x12 Album Storage

We R Memory Keepers 12x12 Album Display
Recently we moved into a rental furnished house. Our space is limited. Currently our albums are placed on top my jetmax cubes. There are 21 Albums:
 (15) WRMK 12 x 12 Leather Albums,
(1) 8 1/2 x 11" WRMK "All About Me" Album,
(5) other 3 Ring and Post Albums and growing.
In the black album, I store some of my spare WRMK and non-WRMK page protectors. On the left I am disappointed that some of the pages have changed color over the years compare to the right (wrapped in the white paper - newer pages).  In person it is a bigger color difference :-( .

Project Life Cards Organized - Jetmax Cubes

Project Life Cards - Organized!
I re-arrange different areas of our house including my scrapbooking area several times a month!  It's drives my husband insane.  This is one of a few ways I store the Project Life and custom cards using the Jetmax Craft Cube Storage.  I use the dividers that were included in the package.

The dividers minus one panel in the middle. The 3x4 cards are stored in the outer rows and the 4x6 cards are stored in the middle row. 

I created my own tabs with a punch.  The punch was purchased years ago at Michael's Craft Store and I believe it is available now at the store. I have 3 drawers filled and in the process of sorting through my remaining stuff.

On my office desk I have this small tray available for quick journaling. They are handmade by me. I've cut the cards from cardstock, scraps or used index cards and stamped with random stamps from my existing stash.  

Another view of the stamped journaling cards. 

The index cards are likely not acid free.Since they are not touching my pictures I am fine with it.

Thank you for looking.

I will return to sharing crafty projects soon!

Almost Done with this stack...

255 Prints!!!
I think my biggest order was 400 plus. However 95% of this stack are collage prints ! Collage prints save me album space and weight.  The majority of my prints are sent to Walgreens. I love the print quality at one local store. They look and feel like "matte" finish. They are not glossy or too dark as I've experienced in the past. A couple of weeks ago they had a sale of 50% all photo orders. The prints were approx. 8 cents each. What a deal ! I wished I could have submitted additional prints but it was a busy week for me and my fingers could not work that fast.  This stack has been sorted (2011 and 2012), dated and almost done placing them in the albums.
I use Piscasa for all my collage prints. It is a free !

Thank you for visiting !
