And its day 4 of 5 Days To An Organized Crafty Stash. Cardstock is what we are talking about and sharing about today. The basis of all we create in paper crafting. The essential. The pretty.
The I-must-have-all-the-colors supply!
To keep all my beautiful paper organized, I use these wooden magazine holders from IKEA. Its the perfect fit.
I sort my colors in rainbow order, pretty much. As you can see down on the red end of things, I do have one color that looks out of place. Some of the reds are similar to my eye, so I keep the reds apart.
To keep the color names straight, and to have cards that help me match up colors, I have cardstock swatches on a large loose-leaf ring. Each swatch is 1/8 of a sheet of cardstock. And I used my label maker to add the name of each cardstock. Having the ring like this makes it easy to add more colors as MFT Stamps releases them.
Did you know that you can print off the color challenges? There is a section on the MFT Blog that is labeled Printable Resources. Its located on the right side of the blog. Click it and there you will be taken to a place full of printable goodness!
Because I do not have a color printer, I had to get creative with my print outs of the color challenges.
I punched several circles from each color of cardstock. I keep them all in a small baggie and adhere them to the color challenge as they are approaching. What I love about this, is how I have color combos on hand any time I need inspiration!
