Sunday Scrap space

Today we take a grand tour of Design Team member, Fran Tynan’s clever scrap space!!


Name: Fran Tynan

Hometown: Morawa, WA

Occupation: SAHM

I can’t live without….scrapbooking, obviously……oh, and my family too!LOL

My favourite dessert is : Pavlova

My inspiration is found : in magazines, blogs and online galleries

On my playlist : sadly the High School Musical soundtracks for my daughters is the last thing I downloaded……….lol.

On my desk: omg  – there’s a desk under there??

What I love the most about Kaisercraft is: they make practically everything you want for scrapbooking!! Papers, embellishments, stamps, BTP’s—something for every project! I love that they’re a one-stop shop—but I guess I’m a bit partial to their BTP’s as they are great value for money and I always can’t wait to see what they’ll bring out next.





Scrap storage tips:

“I’m a cheapskate when it comes to storage as I figure that’s money I could be spending on more supplies—so I aside from a few store-bought storage items—I use stuff I already have.”

“Pizza boxes are a fabulous one—and they are free! I have everything separated into them as you can see with my fancy labels (NOT!) on them in my cupboard. And I actually find them easier to sort through than other special scrapping storage ones.”

“My lovely mum bought me the set of drawers from Bunnings or Red Dot so I don’t know what they cost—but they are fabulous—I keep “miscellaneous” in the top drawer (always need one of those drawers! LOL), alphas in another and stamps in another.”

“I have the concertina file for alphas as well as I made it for a competition a few years ago—it’s great as I have the manila folders in it—so if the alphas fall off the sheet they fall into the folder and are not lost.”

“Since the new Kaiser stuff has come out with the awesome packaging though, I’ve gone and bought myself some storage binders—they are FABULOUS! So fabulous in fact that I’m just about to order the 12”x12” storage file with inserts so that I can keep all the new paper ranges separate.”

“I have to say that they are the best storage ideas I’ve seen in a while—and as I go to crops often I want to be able to take the with me easily enough and these are perfect for that.  I like that if you’ve bought your Kaiser stuff that are already in the new packaging, it’s already to go straight into the files—you are not having to go out and buy the sleeves as well.”

And here’s one of Fran’s latest layouts!! :)

    Oh my how refreshing to see, i’m not alone with the Pizza boxs or the concertine, mind you i have my sticker and some embellishments in my concertine filed by theme…i should get another for letters, i keep my letters in a A4 seethrough file so i can flick through it like a book..mind you it is getting a bit i find this also very useful for keeping scraps of paper. I completely agree with saving your money for your supplies….but those Kaiser Files are really tempting!! i’m eyeing off th 12″ x12″…lol :D Great scrap space Fran! :D

    very organized and efficient. I really like the Kaiser files! I belong to a kit club that uses big pizza type boxes. I use them to restore supplies in as well as projects in the making such as mini albums I want to make that I am awaiting supplies for. (photos, embellies etc) I scrap a lot by project also.

    awesome space ya got there.
