Declutter your home and inspire creativity

Need a way to clear clutter in your home and inspire some new scrapbook pages? Why not scrapbook some of those framed photos?

This is a picture I removed from a Mother's Day frame from 2009.
It's just as cute and takes up much less space!

Picture frames are nice, but they can take up space in your home. In the spirit of New Year’s organization and decluttering, try taking some of your photos out of the frames and get them onto a page.

Once those pages are in an album, they can be placed on the coffee table or tucked away on the book shelf. You can pull them out whenever company is coming, or you just feel like taking a little stroll down memory lane. Meanwhile, your tables, dresser tops, and desks are clear. Also, there are less picture frames to dust. Put those frames in your yard sale box or give away bag. Yay!

These letter stickers come from Close to My Heart.
I added cardboard and ink to help them stand out.

The cardboard comes from the box my Cricut came in.
I just can't throw anything away!

  3. Ran across your post on Arkansas Women Bloggers-so great to get to connect with other creatives in our own backyard! Love the box you created-I'm the worst at saving everything in search for a way to re use it!
