Paper Organization

This is how I organize my paper and paper scraps.  I use the Stampin’ UP! Paper holders and dividers while storing my paper.  I also make my own labels and use the word window punch to make the labels specifying the color. 

On each divider I have attached a 8x8 plastic pocket that I found at the store.  The pocket is adhered with sticky strip.  Yet another great use out of that fabulous tape.  I use this pocket to store my scraps.  This makes it really simple to know if I have any scraps and a wonderful way to store them.  I chose to sort my colors by SU! Color families in the same order that is shown in the Idea book and catalog.

Card Camp 2011

I decided to go ahead and join a card camp to help motivate myself and create more. Doing color challenges is harder for my just because I have to use the colors ... even if I would not generally put them together myself. So for this challenge I decided to a Missing you kind of card.  I think of this card as a clean and simple kind of card.  It does not take much time to make ... And I love the result!

I do have to say that I am proud of myself that I said I am going to make a card today ... and I did. GASP :)
