Yes, you’ll want to catalog your embossing folders too! This week we’ll follow the cataloging steps from week 5, with a few small changes and get your embossing folders, sorted, labeled, cataloged and stored.  What you need: – Additional pages for your catalog – Black marker – for creating a grid pattern on your paper – Crayons – Label supplies – Storage Containers What to do: 1. Gather your embossing folders together. 2. Sort embossing folders by size. 3. If you need storage containers order or purchase the right sizes and styles for your embossing folder collection. 4. Fill your storage containers with embossing folders. 5. Number embossing folders and label storage containers with number “bookmarks” – remember to leave numbers if you have extra space. 6. Create “grid” sheets and use them to catalog embossing folders that are generic background designs. Use 2 squares on the grid if you…

If you did the Week 4 Challenge you’ve started a catalog of dies.  Now we’ll follow the similar steps and add your stamps.  There is no need to create a separate catalog for stamps, in fact you’ll find that having all your “tools” listed together by theme/sentiment/season will help you use them more often. What your need: Additional pages for your catalog (see week 4) Ink Printer/Copy Machine – optional Labels/Marker/Sticky Notes/Adhesive Clear Pockets or Tabbed Divider Pockets (TDP) Storage containers for your stamps What to do: Step 1 – Gather all your stamps together – or as many as you can find. Step 2 – Sort stamps by size. Step 3 – Fill your storage containers – try to keep like sizes together. Use pockets to make everything in each section a uniform size. Step 4 – Label storage containers/pockets with a number – more details on this in…

Cataloging your dies is the best way to know what you have and where it’s stored.  The chances are good that this week will just be the tip of the ice burg when it comes to cataloging your dies – but that’s okay. The best way to organize your dies is by using a catalog and numbering system. What you need: A binder (I recommend 12×12) Blank sheets of white paper (any solid color will work – plain white back side of ugly printed paper) Scrap paper for cutting samples of each die in your collection. A die storage system – magnet sheets and pockets, Die File, etc. Pop Up trash can Labels Laminator/Xyron What to do: Load your storage system/storage containers with dies.  Don’t worry about the order or placement of the dies in the storage system. Label each container in your die storage system. You can choose to…

Keep things together you use together – that means sorting and organizing your embellishments by theme, holiday, or color rather than by “type.”  This idea can be hard to get your brain around, but think about working on a project, i.e., a birthday scrapbook page – when you look in your “birthday” section you want to see all your choices in one place – stickers, stencils, brads, die cuts… Now imagine that you want to add some “color” to that same birthday page – you want to match the other embellishments you’ve selected from the Birthday section – reds and pinks, when you flip to your rainbow section, you’ll see all of your choices – in just the right colors.  It might be flowers, beads, bling, tags, felt, glitter – it’s one stop shopping, no remembering required. What you need: You’ll need embellishment organizers that will allow you to “combine…

Hello, my crafty friends! Tiffany Spaulding here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! Thanks so much for popping by to learn a little about getting your current crafting project organized. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know one of my mantras is “Go Vertical!”  Usually, I’m talking about paper, vinyl, ink pads, or other craft supplies, but today I want you to apply the Go Vertical strategy to your current crafting project. Why vertical?  In general, vertical: Takes up less space Presents items in a more visible way Allows for easier accessibility Provides a more “mobile” solution One of the things that regularly happen with crafting projects and especially paper crafting projects is that we bury our scissors, rulers, embellishments, etc. which results in the “tap and search” – when we literally tap around all of the items on our workspace hoping to find the…

Hello, my crafty friends! Getting your ink pads organized and accessible is the key to using more of them more often. The easiest way to organize ink pads is by using a color chart and an easily accessible storage tool, like my Stephanie Buddy Bag. In this quick blog post I’ll take you through 6 easy steps to using both. Step 1 – Download and print my “Peek-a-Hue” color charts – you’ll find them here. You’ll need one for each color of the rainbow.  You may also want to print extras – these can be used to organize by brand. Step 2 – Create the “Peek” effect Place 2 “Peek-A-Hue” charts back to back and fold along the light grey line. Using a small punch – this could be a craft punch or just a standard hole punch, punch a hole through both sheets of paper.  Repeat this down both…

If paper is your #1 organization challenge, scraps are probably #2.  To get you started WATCH this Scrap Management video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYF3h-lUTaI&feature=youtu.be There’s something about throwing scraps away at the end of a project that many of us struggle with. Before I go any further, I want you to answer 1 question – “If you took time to scrapbook a little bit everyday for the rest of your life, would you ever run out of paper?” I suspect the answer was uttered with a little bit of chuckle, a slight head shake, and a “Nnnno.” So, why are you digging through boxes, folders, baskets…of scraps?  Use the paper you have, use the paper you love and stop spending your time searching for a tiny scrap of paper. I’m not saying you should throw away all your scraps, I’m just saying you should be more mindful of the scraps you choose to…
