How to Begin?

I've come to the realization that to begin to scrapbook, I actually have to start. My dear mother gave me a 12 x 12 scrapbook for Christmas 2006, after we talked of me making one of my son's high school years. I believe she wanted me to keep the memories of the family - past, present, and future - preserved. So here I am 2 1/2+ years later, missing my mother who passed away, and realizing the only way to get it done, is to do it!

Solution Cart Storage!

A few days ago I mentioned getting some VHS cases for the solution cartridge sortage. I finished a few of the boxes, and thought maybe you'd like to see what I did.

I saved everything inside the cartridge packaging: warantee, instruction, cardboard insert, and the clear plastic part that held the cartridge. I cut that part down to fit the case. Made a label for each case, on the computer, and after trimming it down inserted it so I can see the name. Placed the cardboard insert in the front cover.
One disadvantage to these boxes, is that they don't fit in the drawer I have the regular Cricut carts in. Have to find a new place to put these. A never-ending search for storage solutions. LOL
