I knew I wanted to take some crafting supplies with me while visiting in Indiana... but how to do it? After perusing some ideas online, I latched on to the idea of using a makeup bag. They are a great size. They have multiple compartments. And most importantly, they aren't hugely expensive! I went to Target and grabbed this cute Orla Kiely makeup bag with nice handles.
Then I went to town filling it will my supplies... First up was my tools and writing implements. I used one of the side pockets and filled it will markers, journaling pens, pens, paper piercers, knife, and lots of adhesives.
The opposite side pocket holds all my small embellishments and accessories. Packed in there I have sequins, washi tape, stamps (Paper Pumpkin for Nov and Dec), glitter glue, enamel dots, etc.
The middle section holds some post it notes (always handy for planning out my PL pages) and loose paper. I had some extra sheets for the December memories albums, so I put them in here for safe keeping.
Finally I added my few ziploc bags. One bag has die cuts for the December memories albums. Another bag has my December days numbers. And yet another holds some stickers, enamel dots, and more die cuts.
The bag barely closes, but that's okay! Most of these crafting elements will be used in the multiple December albums I'm creating. It should be a lot less full come January.
