Papercrafting Organization: Stencils & Templates (& A Giveaway!)

Papercrafting product organization solutions & tips – just in time for the back-to-school season!

Hey there organizing papercrafters,

We sure hope you’ve had a great Summer – it sure flew by, didn’t it?!

Papercrafting Organization: Let’s Get Our Spaces Looking Great!

I don’t know about you, but being super busy (and traveling for business and vacation) often leads to my craft room and office ending up in disarray, and to my feeling less creative because I feel overwhelmed by all the stuff that accumulates when I’m “loading and unloading” between trips!

Well, it’s time to get our places and spaces back in order!

Who’s with me?

Yeah, I thought I might have a few takers!


This time of year – a time of new beginnings for those starting or returning to school – is not only a perfect time to get our craft spaces back in order, but to save a bit of moolah in the process.

How’s that?

Well, I’m glad you asked.

Papercrafting Organization: Go-Organize.com Back-to-School SaleSAVE BIG!

Our wonderful Get Organized Series sponsor, Go-Organize.com, has been running a Back-to-School Sale, a sale some of you have already taken advantage of as you purchased items for organizing and storing your papercrafting supplies.

Now, for those of you who haven’t yet purchased your desired storage solutions, today’s the day to make it happen because today’s the last day to SAVE BIG!

Not only can you save 10%-20% on Go-Organize.com organizing products, you’ll also get FREE Shipping!

Papercrafting Organization: Is THIS Your Goal? Go-Organize.com Has the Furnishings to Make it a Reality!

It seems that many of you (like much of America!) added “get and stay organized” to your list of intentions for this year and we’re here to help you get back on track, starting with a quick reminder about all the FREE organizing resources we have available, just for YOU!

This pool of free resources, sponsored by Go-Organize.com, includes many posts about organizing solutions for specific supplies and tools, as well as a ton of information on the basics of getting and staying organized, the fundamentals of organizing.

If you haven’t checked out these resources, and even if you have and you could simply benefit from a refresher, we recommend you check them out – they provide a solid foundation for what we’ll be sharing below, and in future Get Organized Series posts.

And if you only have time to read ONE post in this series, then check out this one, the Organizing Basics Recap.

And now, based on multiple requests for assistance in storing this supply, we’re focusing on organizing our stencils and templates, something most of us have at least a small collection of and need better storage so we use them more often.

Right?

Right!

What’s that, you have a rather LARGE collection of stencils? Me too!

And knowing what you have, and gaining access, is a chore? Yup!

Well then, this post is especially important for YOU! 

***********************************************

Note for the Newbies

If you’re just now joining in on our Get Organized Series
and you haven’t checked out all the previous Get Organized Series posts,
I encourage you to do so now, before you read on.

Why?

The information I’ve shared previously is meant as a foundation.

You need to start from the beginning to really get
the full benefit from it and to have the opportunity
to experience organizing success.

all previous Get Organized Series posts,

Week 114’s Papercrafting Inspiration:

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 114 Inspiration Piece (image)

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 114 Inspiration Piece

What do you think of our this week’s
magazine, our latest inspiration piece?

I chose this magazine because this reminds me of the
HUGE pile of luggage we had with us on our recent vacation,
and the piles of luggage most every other family we ran across was dealing with.

Well, actually, we had way more than this!
Stay tuned for photos.

We hope this week’s cover inspires you to create,
whether or not you decide to submit what you create.

This week’s magazine cover/layout offers:

  • Lots of luggage (on a dolly/cart)
  • Great Summer colors: orange, teal & sunshine yellow!
  • Fun shapes & patterns
  • Sunglasses
  • A camera
  • Stickers (from travel destinations)
  • A fun title treatment
  • A black circle with a letter (U) inside (I love the way the arrow at the end of one side of the letter indicates an upward direction, as in Uppercase, the title of this magazine)
  • Mention of “creative” and “curious” (ways of being that I adore and strive for!)
  • A dark orange border on one side
  • A pennant
  • Shoes
  • Toiletries
  • A turtle
  • And, a Fall leaf
  • And, perhaps you see something else?


What will YOU create this week?

The Deadline & Creative Options:
The deadline for submitting your papercraft projects this week is
Sunday, August 30, 2015, at midnight (central, GMT-5).

As a reminder, this papercrafting challenge is open to
ALL types of papercrafted creations!

And, it’s open to ALL papercrafters,
wherever you are in the world!

How about creating something for your home or office or as a gift?

Whether you like to make home decor items, work in your art journal, create “repurposed” projects out of paper products, make cards, enjoy creating scrapbook layouts, or prefer book-binding, quilling or origami, or some other form of papercrafting, it’s all welcome!

Love this week’s inspiration for a Project Life® or 365 entry or page?

Create and enter that! 

The ONLY requirements for entering this week’s Magazine Mondays papercrafting challenge are that your entry must be a papercraft project – it must somehow incorporate paper – and it must be submitted by the deadline.


Playing along with this week’s papercrafting challenge is easy:

  • Go create something – any papercraft project – based on this week’s inspiration (above)
  • Come back to this post and leave a comment, including a link to where you’ve posted your papercraft creation, by midnight (central time, GMT-5) on Sunday, August 30, 2015.
  • Check back often to see what others have created and posted (and show your fellow papercrafters love by commenting on their creations!)

We’ll be checking the comment section of this blog post for comments and links to papercrafting goodness, and we’ll pin all the creations to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board and link to them on the PaperCrafter’s Corner Facebook page so everyone can be inspired. (Note: be sure your papercraft creation is not blocked from being pinned if you want it added to our board.)

Then, on Monday, August 31, 2015we’ll randomly choose one papercrafter from this week’s papercrafting challenge entries to receive a fun papercrafting prize.

And, their winning entry will be called out as ***THE WINNER*** on our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board, and a link to their entry will forever live in our Facebook timeline!

What is Magazine Mondays All About?

It’s a weekly dose of papercrafting inspiration courtesy of magazines.

We’ll be offering you peaks at their covers, pages, topics, typography, colors and type in hopes of inspiring you to create.

And, most importantly, it’s a chance for you to show off your papercraft creations and win fun papercrafting prizes!

PaperCrafter’s Corner (PCC) has been known for being a papercrafting information resource (store, event, retreat and kit club directories; industry news; product roundups, etc.) and provider of entertainment (product sneak peeks, challenges, giveaways, etc.).

Now we want to become your number-one source of inspiration…more specifically, papercrafting inspiration!

Magazine Mondays – How To Play Along

Each Monday we’ll post a magazine page, cover or projects here on our blog and encourage you to use it as inspiration to create something of your very own.

You’ll create something (ANYTHING papercrafted) and add a comment on the blog post, including a link to your inspired papercraft creation, before midnight (central time, GMT-5) the following Sunday.

Please note: Some challenges include special requirements in order for your entry to be eligible to win – be sure to check for these and include them!

We’ll “pin” each week’s magazine – as well as everyone’s creations – to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board to provide even more inspiration for our community.

And, we’ll link to all the creations from our Facebook page so everyone following our Facebook timeline can click through and see the creations our community has shared!

And the best part?

One lucky winner
(chosen randomly from all entries received
by midnight [central time, GMT-5]
of the Sunday following the inspiration piece posting)
will receive a prize for participating!

And, the winner will get to see
her/his papercraft creation called out as
***THE WINNER*** on our
Magazine Mondays Pinterest board
!


Play along and Good Luck!
