Organizational {Friday} Color Swatchbook

Most of you probably remember my organizational posts sharing how I create color swatches of my Copics, Stickles, stamp ink, etc. I have even added to my binder to now include swatch pages of my Shimmerz and Twinkling H20s. This book is SO handy, I literally use it every time I craft. If you missed those posts, here are the various links:

Binder Containing Color Swatch Pages
Stamp Ink Swatches
Stickles Color Swatches

One of my wonderful readers, Christina, shared her colorswatches with me a couple of weeks ago. I love how they turned out. I thought you might like to see another swatchbook sample. You can see Christina's swatchbook here.

If you want to see my pages for my Shimmerz, Twinkling H20s, or Copics, let me know, and I can share those another week. Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed Friday. And be sure to leave Christina some love when you stop by to see her swatchbook. I am sure you would make her day! Blessings,

I remember when you shared this and loved the idea so much I did it myself. I don't have much in way of supplies like you do so it was pretty easy. I did my Dabbers, Glimmer mists, and stamp pads (Stazon, Distress Inks) I only have a handful of Stickles so I guess those will be next!! Great idea, thanks for sharing it again!!!

Hi again!
I loved Christina's journal-sized swatchbook and if I were to do it all over again I would probably do that. I used white cardstock which I first made a master with grids and I copy and hole punch and put the pages in a 8.5 x 11 binder. My next step is to get page protectors so the originals aren't exposed to "spills" and such and alter my binder into a pretty work of art :-)

Thank you so much, Patter, for your very kind compliments and for the inspiration to help me finally organize my stamps, among other things! And a big thanks to your wonderful readers who left me such nice comments that I really and truly appreciate!

Great ideas! I just started to organize the colors of my Potion No. 9. I used large tags on a metal ring. Then I can put the "recipe" on the back and have a large area to show from one to two or more coats of color. Eventually a book like this would be a great idea when I've made more colors. Thanks for sharing both!
