Getting Ready For A Crop or Swarm

We try to bring little gifts for prizes so I decided I better let everyone know about my blogs 'New Look' (thank you Pam). Soooo, I ate lunch at my desk and worked on Electronic Treat Bags by using the header on my blog. I thought I could fit 4 tags on 1 8 1/2 x 11 sheet but had to settle for only 2. After I printed this I discovered I wound need to give out packs of gum so I made them larger and printed a few.

Fold right there between where the two headers meet.

Then I just adhered the adhesive an closed.... now we have a little gift for some lucky scrapper.
Now we better organize the bags to make sure I have all the necessary items to make my project.
I decided to break out the zip lock bags to place like items in this time, hopefully making my life easier. I can't get over how messy things get in such a short time! This should have stayed neater considering my messenger bag was just packed 2 weeks ago!  My large shoulder CM bag will have all my tools in it while my messenger bag will carry my projects.

I will also be taking my expression and my Gypsy Woman as I want to be ready to cut even though I plan on cutting my project ahead of time. I chose SOUS 1/15 sketch as I just love that layout. Unfortunately it was designed for a left hand page and I need a right so I have flipped it. Hopefully I will have it completed  and posted Monday even if it will be 4 days late. I haven't had a day off in 2 weeks so thats just the way it is.

Lets take a look at my CM bag. It holds my scorepal, cricut cutter, cricut tool kit, ATG gun, CM cutter, cutting mat, scissors, markers, adhesives, pop dots, mini and large glue dots, various size zig glue, cm tape runners  and cutting tools of all kinds. Punches, buttons, ribbons, rhinestones, pearls, stickles, skittles, feathers and so on. Oh, forgot my markers, chalk, brad tool kit, primas, brads, page protectors and I still need to take some paper, cuttle bug folders, red tape and a snack.

Boy it's hard to squeeze my fingers in this..... it should be interesting just trying to pick this up!!!
Now come back tomorrow and I will show you how I prepare my packets for a crop or a swarm. I will have only 1 packet with me as the project will be very intense and time consuming! I have it laid out on my Gypsy Woman... 7 pages of cuts....
