New Scrapbooking Tool

I am late to the game I know... but I just couldn't handle the money for a tape dispenser. Even though some of my friends and fellow YT scrappers SWEAR by it... I resisted. Anyway  I got on a kick for tapes and I was using Ad Techs disposable ones that you can get at TJMaxx and Marshalls and Tuesday morning... but the waste is nutty.  The cost was pretty good, but it was so short lived. I did about 3 layouts per runner. So I was on the way to the Scrapbook Expo this past weekend ( see video) and had on my mind that if I saw it being sold there I would buy it.
Of course I didn't see it!!  So today I checked my apps for coupons and ACMoore had a 55% off coupon. Now since last week I have been checking all local stores to find the best price. I even used another coupon to buy the refills (yes before I had the glider) LOL... Anywho I used the 55% off coupon at Michaels  to get this set.

I posted on a Facebook group that I got the glider and got a lot of useful tips to a new comer!! Thanks everyone... here are some tips from FB and a newbie(me)
* practice before using the glider on a project
*saves money on tapes
*kind of press up and away to break tape
*you can rub off the tape before really pressing it down
*watch a video to learn how to load/reload the glider... this is the video I watched (I <3 MercyTiara)

Thanks for reading everyone... now I just have to just find where I put those refills I
already brought... LOL

p.s. Here is a link for Amazon... in case you wanted to order online

Storage of Scraps

Just a quick post on how I store my scraps and sticker collection.  I picked these folders in Amazing Savings (location list) which is like a Dollar Tree but things are not only a dollar.... like a chain Thrift store. Anyway... this store has a ton of scrapbooking stuff most K&Company and random brands.  I didn't label the scraps just put in color order. The stickers I had a few more categories so I had to.  Follow me on Youtube to see a video with more information!!

New Daytimer planna

Here are some pictures of my new DayTimer planner.  It is called the Mom planner.  I found this one at Staples.  Once I got home I tried to look online for this planner and Staples online only had the old cover listed. Weird right.  Here are some great things about this planner...

1. Cover seems durable and the stitching around is a nice touch!!

2. 2 years to use... with 2014/2015 embossed on the front above the tab snap closer

3.The months at a glance pages are lined and separated. With a good size space to write goals and notes.

4. Although there is only one pen loop... it can hold a 6 color multi pen really nicely!! I hope it doesn't get streched out over time... so I will have to rotate the pens.

5. The pouch in the back can even hold longer markers and pens.

6. I might have used out my old one... but this planner also comes with a punch hole mini notebook. With about 50 sheets(eyeballling this amout).

7. There is an ABC phone list in the back.  I am not sure if I am going to use these... just cause I do have my contacts in my phone... but maybe I will list a few really imporant contacts in that list. Speaking of that though there is a separate 3 sheets of Frequently Called Numbers... so I don't think I will need to double up on this phone list.  The ABC list might be the only thing I move into the older planner... just to save space.

8. Holidays are listed in the month pages as well as with in the weeks.

9. Saturday and Sunday get the same space as the other days...  I find this the best cause those are just as busy days for me!!

10. There are 3 great colors for this planner... I would say head out to your local Staples to find this one! I payed around $32 for mine... I am sure maybe less with a coupon!!

11. Here is the link to the Day Timer site which still (as of 8/12/14) has this planner on their site.
