Operation Organize—Embossing folders


Jennifer here with your dose of OPERATION ORGANIZE. Do you guys LOVE your embossing folders as much as I do? It seems like I can not get enough of them. I love to use them to add texture and depth to my cards.

Today I am showing you how I keep them organized and easy to see.

I took a piece of A4 size cardstock (all the same color, just to be consistent). Ran it through the Cuddlebug and embossed a sampler of all the folders. Then I use this super cute polka-dot binder and page protectors (both from Target). The binder is a 8.5 x 5.5 size, so it fits 2 samples perfectly on each page.

I numbered the page in the book and the corresponding embossing folder.
NOW, I can look through my book to find the folder I want. No more fumbling through the folders.

The embossing folders (including the A7 ones) fit PERFECTLY in this CD storage basket.
All of my folders fit in just this one basket. I think it holds about 75.

Now to implement that organization onto a card. I looked through my book and found the folder I wanted, a cloud one by Darcie, #10 in my book. You can buy it here.

I also used the Baby Love stamp set. It contains great stamps that work together or separately. Just look at that rainbow! I can think of a dozen cards I could use just that one on.

I stamped and colored the blue rainbows before I ran it through the Cuddlebug (click on photo to see the embossed clouds better).

Thanks for checking out Operation Organization today. Hope this helps you achieve that organized space.
