You don't have to be a scrapbooker to be inspired by the creative work spaces featured in this colorful guide to organization—but if you want to re-create any of the ideas in the book, it helps. Smedley (former creative editor, Simple Scrapbooks magazine) and Garvey, a professional organizer, facilitate bringing order to creative spaces using familiar scrapbooking techniques, including paper cutting, collage, stamping, and stenciling. The authors include plenty of tips to get and stay organized as well as quizzes to help scrapbookers think about their personal creation and organization styles.

    Very helpful--great ideas

    I enjoyed this book because the two authors are very different in how they create while scrapbooking and thus they have different ideas on how to organize. They also examine other scrappers who have different organizational needs. This is a book I plan to come back to again and again.
