A Tip for your Stampin' Up! "Color Caddy"

Sat 5 Aug 2017

Hello there! Just a quick post today for you, and I wanted to share a little bit of organising that I've just done in my craft room. 

How do you like my new labelling for my Stampin' Up! "Color Caddy"? I'm chuffed to bits with it! I may not be the tidiest person in the world (just ask my husband), but I do love to be organised and am always searching for things that will make it easier to keep everything looking nice. I like my "Color Caddy" to be arranged in rainbow order, but whenever I take it out and about to events or the like, I find I'm having to rearrange it all totally when I get home, which takes me ages. Not only that, but I tend to end up with loads of inkpads out on my craft desk all at once, and then I struggle to remember where to put them back. 

I spotted a handy list of all the current Stampin' Up! colours, beautifully organised into rainbow order, in the current Annual Catalogue a while ago (it's on page 183, if you want to find it), and all my inkpads have been sorted according to that list. So, I thought, why don't I just photocopy it and  stick the relevant bits onto my "Color Caddy" so I don't have to rootle through the catalogue every time I need to get my inkpads in order. And that's what I did. Easy! I did have to play around a bit with the top end of the list, as we don't have a Very Vanilla inkpad, and I keep my Craft Whisper White pad in a drawer rather than in the caddy, but that wasn't too hard.

I'm really pleased with the end result, and it's saving my so much time already. Ah, it's the little things.... 

Back soon, with a colour spotlight technique that I've been wanting to try for ages. Thanks for dropping in, and do let me know if you like this tip, by leaving me a comment below.
