Organisation Celebration blog hop

Welcome and thank you for hopping by. 

Jennifer over at Jennifer Jumbles very kindly invited me to join in with her Organisation Celebration blog hop. Jennifer has a weekend planned to inspire you starting this evening until Sunday 1st July.  There will be posts on her blog every hour until 10pm this evening and from 10am-10pm Saturday and Sunday (BST), tips, tutorials, challenges, crafts, and lots of GIVEAWAYS! 

At the end of this post there are details regarding a giveaway please read on.


Organise is Jennifer's word of the year.
What does the word organise mean to you?
To me it means to have order, to arrange, plan, prepare, look after, straighten out, see to, get going, get together and be responsible for. I do like to be organised and if I am then everything gets done and I have more time to scrapbook!! 
To help assist me in my organisation I am a great list writer and I have many (some might say too many) a notebook. Post it note reminder books, stuff to do notebooks, things to buy notebooks. In fact I have a friend who only ever buys me notebooks for my birthday and I do the same with her. Mad I know.....but something of a tradition it gives me an excuse for searching out unusual notebooks throughout the year. 

Paperchase is the top of my list for notebooks. I love the ranges they have and a notebook with plastic pockets, coloured sections, graph paper, plain paper and lined paper is so much more interesting than a plain notebook....don't you think?

So my contribution to the hop is a layout showing the few notebooks I have on the go at the moment.
Keep Calm and Take Note

 I've seen lots of negative alpha cut outs and wondered how to create this effect myself. When I first started scrapbooking I used an alpha stencil for lettering titles. Using the stencil and some ink the background turned out to look like this.

 The little tab at the top behind the photo holds my journalling.

If you arrived here from the lovely Leanne then your next stop is the lovely Rinda.
If you have just dropped by then you may wish to hop straight over to Jennifer and start hopping at the beginning.

Just remember that each lovely blog along this hop has a letter for you to collect (mine is above, repeated four times.....just in case!!) Once you've got them all, and reached the end of the hop, you can email Jennifer the phrase you've collected. All entries must be received by Monday the 2nd of July at 11.59pm BST, and all the correct answers will be put into a draw to win this gorgeous prize package 
 Thanks again and enjoy your hoping.
