What are you going to do? Picnic? Maybe get some crafting in?
I think I am going to get inky! And after I show you this neat way of organizing those sponge daubers you might want to too!
I got new sponge daubers for my Distress Inks. I replaced my blending tools. (I like the sponge daubers instead of the handled blending tools, I have more control of the colors)
I was starting to organize them by labeling them with my beloved ptouch. But, I realized (actually knew) that I am more of a visual person and the labeling was not going to work for me.
WASTED labeling tape (oh well).
I needed to label by showing the color, not just naming the color.
Here's how I did it:
I used the sponge dauber to put a little spot on a strip of sticker paper. Then I used a 1/2 circle punch to punch out a circle that I then placed on top of the case over the corresponding sponge dauber.
I LOVE IT!
I did still use my ptouch to put labels of the color around the actual sponge dauber, so I know what color I am using.
Now I can see the color I want. You can purchase the box here.
WoooHooo! I hope I inspired you to organize! Remember to organize in the way that works best for you!
Nicole here - I just love this dauber idea ... and it would work great for this card (and this general technique) that I LOVE to do ...
It would be so helpful to have a dauber for each color - I go through daubers fairly fast because they're not assigned to just one color. I know they would last FOREVER if I only used them for one color.
I used the 'Distressed Chevron' for that card - LOVE that background stamp!
Thanks to Jennifer for showing us her organizing tips!
Happy Stamping and Happy Organizing!
