I really was going to do something crafty last night but the organization bug hit me!
I decided to cut down the paper holders I got at Hobby Lobby on Saturday and was putting those in my Ikea Expedit unit and decided I need to organize some paper...or re-organize!
I got my Basic Grey paper all organized in my paper holders. I used the tabbed dividers to separate them by collection. This will be so much easier for me to find to where I don't have to lift them up to look through them *okie is amazed how her large brain actually retains the papers in each collection rather well*. I did realize that I have two sets of the Periphery chipboard items and no Periphery paper! *okie sighs and wonders how that happened and thinks it might have been a Big Lots find*.
After I got the paper organized I thought I would stamp some images with a set of Betsy Bluebell Penny Black stamps I got and color them. Once I got the images stamped I realized I hadn't made a color chart for my ProMarkers. So ya know what that means.......yep I had to make my charts! But at least it is done now.
I was recently blessed by Letraset with the full 148 marker set. When I found out I was getting the set I wondered how to store this many markers and my friend Enfys of GOING BUGGY sent me a link to see hers. She had found a professional DJ CD case that the markers fit in. I was able to get one off eBay for right around $25. You can click the link above to see her markers in her storage case.
I used my ATG gun to put tape on the back of the charts and then attach to the lid.
I had to make a chart for the colors and did so in Microsoft Word, making a table, typing each color name in and then going back and coloring in each square. It was a bit time consuming but well worth the time and effort because I will be able to easily find my colors. I do plan on adding the dots like Enfys has when I find some small enough to fit on the caps.
The chart at the bottom of the picture is done according to the new BLENDING SETS that Letraset has come out with. I think this will be very useful to me since I still have problems putting colors together sometimes. My plan is to do some coloring this week with the colors from the Blending Sets to just see how easy it is to combine them and make an image look good *okie crosses her fingers* so ya'll wish me luck!
