This isn't the first planner developed and marketed to scrapbookers but it just might be the best marriage of a tradtional planner and a scrapper's notebook to date. The choice of binder colors are Pink and Willow Green in a stylish design. Can't wait to see one in person!

OrganizedScrapbooks.com member Ahorsesoul1 share her super solution to embellishment storage: compartmented organizers from the hardware store!

This is ORGANIZEDScrapbooks. CEO posts lots of articles, stories, and links about how to approach and manage this craft in an organized fashion. One our moderators, Gingerbug, bless her heart, volunteers many valuable hours to leading discussions on the tenets of organizing and planning.
