I don’t know about you but keeping organized while scrapping is always a challenge of mine. I tend to become like a goldfish, growing into to whatever room I’m allowed. That’s not always fun when it comes time to clean up.
Hooray for a great Tip Time Tuesday today from Design Team member Staci Jones on making that clean up just a wee bit easier! This girl is a thinker!

Raise your hand if you have loved all the fun washi projects this month! I have loved seeing what everyone has created and I love Downtown Tape. I first heard about them on a local morning show and bought right away. I have so many of their tapes and think they are just wonderful. I was super excited to work with them for July. The only problem I had was choosing which ones to work with:
How do you choose, right? I didn’t want any of them feeling left out so I decided to use them all. This isn’t one of the typical Tip Time Tuesdays because I didn’t technically make anything with this months featured templates, but don’t worry this tip is with definitely help you use those templates!
One of the biggest struggles I have with the templates (and scrapping in general) is the cleanup. Mine ends up being a beautiful pile on my table:
I usually push the pile aside and deal with it later. (And by later I mean 4-5 projects later.) It is always quite the ordeal sorting them back to their respective rings when my scrapping time is so limited. Enter the wonderful Downtown Tape washi. With so many color options, I decided to use colors to separate the different template categories: ex. Green=Accessories, Blue+Tiny Accessories, Black/Grey= 12inch Borders. I tagged each piece in a template set with a small piece of washi, changing to a different style for the next set.
By tagging all the templates in a set, they are so easy to clean up!
Also, with all the templates tagged and knowing their categories, it is easier to know where the ones I am looking for are hanging and are quicker to grab.
Here is what they look like framed and ready to do a layout:
Thanks for joining me today! I hope this was helpful and I hope that you have enjoyed this month of wonderful washi tips and projects! See you next month!
