Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

We’re on to a new type of catalog – the color catalog.
I recommend is using my “Peek-a-Hue” color charts. These are a free download – see the links below

Why is creating a color catalog using your actual supplies important?
There are a couple of reasons –

  • Try as they might, it’s nearly impossible for the manufacturers to create labels on their products that show the “true” color on the ink, pen, marker, etc;. Cataloging the colors will give you that “true” color.
  • Using each of your colors will give you an opportunity to discover what you have and what you need.
  • You’re sure to find dried up products that can be tossed and replacements added to your shopping list.

The process of cataloging your inks, pens, and markers is similar to the other products we’ve catalogued.

Challenge Goals
– Have quick, easy access to your inks, pencils, markers, etc.
– To be able to purchase new products without duplicating what you already own.

Step 1 – How will you store your items?
Challenges with these supplies:

  • Different sizes and shapes
  • Variety of products

Choosing storage
Think easy access. Things you can keep on your workspace if you always craft at home, or things that are easy to bring to your worktable and put back quickly.

Step 2 – Gather, Sort, Label

  • Gather all your products together
  • Sort items by brand and product type
  • Label each of them a number/name (note: most are already numbered/named by the manufacturer, use the manufacturer number/name to keep things easy.)

 Step 3 – Create Color Catalog & Manufacturer Catalog (optional)
Group products by type (markers, colored pencils, inks, etc.), make color swatch samples, then enter the assigned number and/or manufacturer name of each item next to the swatch in your catalog pages. You may want to create catalogs – one to keep in your Rainbow Section/catalog, and one that is manufacturer specific. Use Tiffany’s Peek-a-hue color catalog sheets. (CLICK on each for FREE Download)

Step 6 – Store Products
Store cataloged products together by type in your chosen storage system.
Storing all color products together by color is an option for crafters who have less.
Other Options / Ideas:
Get product lists/grids from manufacturers (check their websites).  Companies like Tsukineko, Ranger, and Copic have lists you can use to keep track of their products you own.  There’s an extensive list on the Get Organized Challenge FB Group – email us if you have links to share and we’ll add them.

Tif’s Tips – aka, learn from my mistakes.
Use the “paper” stickers I recommended in the previous catalogue classes to “ink” a true color for your supplies. *Decide on and, if needed, purchase the storage tools that work with the way you craft
*Gather all your coloring agents together by type and brand.
*Create catalog sheets by color and by manufacturer (optional).
*Sort 3 containers of coloring agents.
*Set a goal if you’re still working on:
              – Paper – Goal: ____________
              – Embellishments – Goal: ____________
               – Dies – Goal: ______________
               – Embossing Folders – Goal:________________
                – Stamps – Goal: ____________
