Apparently my post didn't go live on Friday...I think I forgot to schedule it. lol This is part of one my goals this year to be organized and that mean's scheduling posts ahead so far I love it but the hole forgetting part is a pain lol hmmmm maybe I'll have to make a list for that...dh is gonna love that! lol
Every Friday I will be hosting the Scrapbook Saddle Up with y'all!! It will feature a scrapbook layout to a scrapbooking album ideas along with tips, techniques and etc!!
Today is another part of my Daily Project Life Journal. I originally wasn't going to show this cause I thought it would boring for my readers. lol Then I thought nope this is part of my organizing this year. I am in the process of converting all my wheels over to cling foam Stampin' Up! sells. Yep all zillion and one of them. lol I need to condense stuff down. I really thought about this long and hard before I did this too. After doing this hobby for more than 15 years you can about imagine what I have for stuff. ROFL

So what does a zillion and one wheels look like once they are unmounted????? Prepare yourself cause after my dh helped me unmounte them which took us about 4 hours; I almost started crying cause I thought OMG what did I do. lol
See what I mean....GASP my beloved wheels. EEEKKKKKK I never did count them. I should do that. lol Here is what the wheels looked like when we were done. We did have to trim a few down to fit the clear block but it wasn't much.
Hole lot of wheels peepes! Off to the recycling they went. We filled 3 bags. I told a zillion and one! Then we started to mount them to the cling foam.
Supper easy to do! I don't remember off hand how many we got onto a sheet. I am far from done as I had to order way more cling foam. lol So I will count next time we work on it. Then after dh cut them up for me :)
Rubber Redneck Quick Tips:
1. Try un-mounting one first and see if it's for you. I choose a wheel that if I didn't like it; it wasn't the end of the world if it was ruined.
2. As you un-mount them some how label them right away. I didn't even give that a thought (roll my eyes) so now it's taking me longer cause I have to look up each one. So don't do what I did. Snort
3. It is a little spendy to do this so you might want to do it a little at a time. Make sure you have a place to store them while waiting for cling foam to arrive. lol
4. During Sale-a-bration is a great time to do this cause you get something free for every $50!! And if your like me I needed a lot so I had enough for my own party to get the hostess benefits too! SCORE
So now your wondering how did I store them right? Well first my dh decided I needed a label maker and WOW peeps this is something you NEED. I don't know how I have lived my life without a label maker. lol I purchased some clear cases that Stampin' Up! sells. I love these!!! The clear cases you can fit 2 jumbo wheels in. So after some more thinking I decided to order the Avery Elle clear pockets. What I am going to do is when I un-mount the matching stamp set I am going to put the coordinating wheel with the set in the clear case. The rest of the wheels are going to go in the Avery Elle pockets so I can store them in a plastic bin. I think this way will save me on storage space so that's the plan right now. lol Once I get this part all done I will show more pictures I promise it's just gonna take awhile to do. lol
*All the pictures above will go into my album and these are all the little cards I made using our Happiness Is Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack.
* I wanted to incorporate one of the wheels some how so I stamped it onto a piece of card stock that I will attach to the picture when I print them. I also went ahead and mounted my index card right away to the paper that will slide into the pocket. This will be the front page.
Here is what the back page will look like. When I took this picture I hadn't finished journaling about it. lol
* The Borderettes Stamp Set is perfect for adding little borders to any cards.
Some of you have asked me why don't I just put everything right away into an album. I want to keep it all together in the box I created just for something fun and different. At the end of the year I will put it all into an album so as I go I am making all the inserts right away too and clipping them together.
Here it is clipped together to slide right into my box! This project has been a blast! I do need to figure out how to be a little more organized though. I am working on something that I will share with you all when I am done.
