3 Reasons to Organize your Stamps and Tools Part 3…

This is part 3 of my personal journey to get organized

This post I tackled my color collection

I only have the colors that are staying in the Color Refresh (May 31st I can post all the new colors)

I have a technique book that is an 8 x 8 photo album

I decided to put my color pages in with my techniques to keep everything close at hand

I don’t want a ton of different books to look through to find what I need

In the process of creating these pages I also added some organizing to my stamp pads

I used the Word Window Punch to punch out two of the same color as the ink pad

One punch I cut in half and glued into the ink pad as I was stamping the color pages

This way when two ink pads are sitting open side by side I can tell which is which

As you can see from the picture I have Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso side by side

It is hard to tell by looking at the ink pads which is which but with the card stock insert it is easy

The other punch is attached to the color page so I have The marker, Ink and, Card stock colors in one grouping

I am on a mission to organize all of my craft stuff starting with my Stampin’ Up! supplies

I hope you are enjoying this journey with me

It is a lot of work but well worth the effort

Stay tuned for part 4 “The Stamps”

Please let me know if you have done this and share pictures of your ideas!
