Organization and pieces of scraps

I've proven over and over again that I am not good with storing scraps. No matter now I store them (each time I have a mass dumping I come up with a new way), they continue to get bent and thrown out. So I've come to the realization that I really need to do an OOIN (also knows at out with the old and in with the new). I know I don't need more stuff because if you have seen my scrap room, I have more than a lifetime of paper. But we'll move on from that addiction and off the topic.

So I've been making magnets for the SEI challenge so I've seen that I have a ton of big sheets of scraps with holes in the middle as a result of die cutting. So I've found a way to make them work for me. There's really a different sense of freedom working with all the older SEI papers because they seem to have been less bold and simplistic than the papers today. These two layouts have moved from one clutter pile and into a new clutter pile of albums. Guess it's a much happier place, right?

Maybe I should take you to visit a place called SCRAPS. It's pretty cool. (Yelp it, in SF.)
