Watch out for great ideas as scrapbooking blogger Jess of Scraps Of Home shares her small-but-organized scrapbook room!
Using inexpensive organizing solutions, she's "climbed the walls" to create space and storage for her scrap stash. We like the labels and signs--they make it easy to remember what went where, when the doors are closed.
Creating a calendar can be a rewarding experience with a bit of planning. Time is always a factor in our busy lives but large projects become more manageable when broken down into smaller doable tasks. For August the goal of the Calendar Creations group was to complete layouts for the months of January, February, March, and April. For January I selected a simple layout in shades of blue and white. This is the January paper available from www.orientaltrading.com in their monthly paper bundle. Add a white lacey punched border, shades of blue paper strips, silver-white snowflake stickers, and a snowflake button to create a simple yet eye catching layout.

This idea, we love. From the Scrapbooking Blog at CraftGossip.com, a picture is worth a thousand words:
Paper crafts have evolved over the last few years and scrapbooking is not just about making pages any more. There are a variety of techniques that lend themselves to other canvases. One of the most popular of these is altering containers to use for a variety of purposes. Empty paint cans are available at local home improvement stores and also in most craft stores. Here’s a website that has a variety of cans available: http://www.cansareus.com
Local scrapbook stores frequently host classes on different projects and techniques. Donna O’Neal owner of Scrapbook Nook in Warrenton, Missouri recently hosted just such a class. During it, participants were able to make an altered paint can, using any style of paper available in the store. Completed with ribbon and beads the cans make awesome containers for gifts.

They're simple but profound: tips to organize scrapbooking materials from blogger Tracie Claiborne.
"The first key to being organized is DON'T OVER-BUY. I only allow myself enough stuff that I can keep organized and in sight. If you have already bought too much...PURGE."
Together with photos of her beautifully-organized scrap wall, they're sure to inspire you to clean house and cut clutter in the scrapbooking room:
Baskets and hangtags and glass jars, oh my! The Mad Scrapper blog features these ribbon storage ideas from Candice Palmer. Whether it's custom-cut cardboard bolts (tucked into open baskets), or small rounds stored by color in glass jars, these ribbon storage ideas are function and decorative, too:

We all know the story: products come and products go, leaving bits and pieces of "so-last-year" stuff behind them. What do you do with those out-of-style embellishments, stickers and tags?
Try these creative ideas from Scrapbooking.com. Creating mini-books and small projects with old-style page elements makes good use of them, and clears space in the scrapbooking area for this month's must-have product:
Calendars are highly popular gifts, as one can tell from the kiosks in the malls at Christmas. Everyone looks forward to the crisp new pages of a calendar to welcome in the New Year.
At organizedscrapbooks.com, in the coming months, we will be working to create a unique 2008 calendar that can be used as a gift or treasured as your very own. While creating a calendar may seem a simple task, it is essential to layout and plan your calendar ahead of time. Preplanning, while not always fun, allows you to create the calendar that you envision without too many detours along the way. First ask yourself a few questions.
What kind of calendar do you want? Wall? Desk? What size?
Who are you creating the calendar for?
What are their likes and dislikes? Favorite colors?
