Embellishment Storage Book

 Stickers & Die Cut Organization



Working on my goal I am starting by purging some of my sticker bits, diecuts and assorted embellishments. I have so many I am not using that this felt like a great 1st step.

In starting on this goal one of the problems I was having was where was I going to put the bits??
Janice Gilhooley has a video on the CDT membership site that is similar to a prior organizing method but changes up how I had organized with a simpler thought process. By color!
she has a few other ideas too, but the Color bit was what got my mind working on how I think I could make this work for me. 

So, the steps I recommend:
  • Think about what works and what doesn't in your current method
  • Get the items you plan to organize (keep it small so you don't get overwhelmed).
  • Figure out the space you have to organize them in
  • Purge what you don't care for or feel you won't use.
  • Place items that are too large (Frames, Large labels etc..) aside for now.
  • Then organize by color (or how ever your brain will remember to find the items)
  • Then purge again (anything you are not finding motivate or make you feel like you would use the item).
  • Then adhere to the pages in your book.

Supplies:
I recommend some white (neutral) paper to adhere your items on
Page protectors
A binder to hold the page protectors (Stay 6 X 9 or 8 1/2 X 11 so it's not too big)
Labels for your book to help you find items you will use.
Cricut Design Space Link
Glue dots (Permanent and repositionable)
Tape runner (Permanent and repositionable)
Space to sort your items.
Box for items you are purging.
Patience 

Most of all have fun with the organization project so you stay motivated
and find some inspiration.
