Layouts are a Messy Business

Here's my newest layout above. I think I am subconsciously influenced by Valentine's Day's imminent arrival. Or maybe not so subconsciously. This one is pretty simple and non-techniquey, but after a few days of working on it for 15 minutes at a time, I was very ready to break out the adhesive and call it a day!

Now for a true confession.

I am generally a clean and tidy person. But somehow when I scrap, it's like a product bomb exploded. Case in point:

And Exhibit B:

If anyone has mastered the art of creating a layout without putting everything they own on their desk, do let me know.


  1. The trick for me while creating? Having two shelves RIGHT above my workspace... to corral all the small craziness: scissors, pens, adhesives, inks, small embellishments, etc. Works like a charm. All those papers and alphas though?! I just push those to the side. LOL.

    Cute layout! :)

  2. I use my pegboards right next to my desk .. lol .. and little shelve units .. girl.. love your space .. perfect picture

  3. that's your mess? you should look at mine! it's x589 :)

  4. Hey, all of that goodness all over your desk is just part of the process. FUN!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing your thoughts:)
