There are so many uses for leftover scrapbook paper. There is no need to throw away your scraps. I have made use of my scraps to make an envelope album. You can also include tags and additional photo mats.
Just a quick note to say that I am so glad to know that Two Peas in a Bucket has an Etsy store for their exclusive wood and flair designs. They already have just under 300 items up on the site. They are listed under ItsLikeThisLLC and you should check it out here. With so many scrapbook stores shutting their doors, I am just happy to know that Two Peas will still have some presence on the web with their Etsy shop. I will certainly be stopping by to check it out frequently.
So you are headed to a scrapbook bed and breakfast retreat and you don’t know what to pack. You’ve come to the right place for some tips on how to pack for this type of retreat because through trial and error, over-packing and leaving behind much needed items, I have learned the hard way how to organize to get the most out of the time away. This ensures that more projects get completed and less organizing and reorganizing goes on at the retreat.
However, before you pack even so much as an eyelet, check to see what tools and items are available for use at the retreat home. Most scrapbook retreats have a list of tools available right on their website and usually include die cut machines like Cricut and/or Silhouette and basic cartridges. Please note that most require you bring your own mat if they provide a Cricut machine.
