Organizational {Friday} Cardstock & Swatches

I think most of you know that I like swatches of all of my colors--papers, inks, Stickles, Copics, etc. Well, I have a large swatchbook of all of the Memory Box papers but it's not in my regular "color binder." That has been driving me crazy!!!! Also, I recently met with a store owner about carrying Memory Box products, and she wanted a swatch sheet. So, I decided to make one for her and a smaller one for my little color binder.

It was super easy to make. I created my file in Microsoft Excel (where I make all of my color sheets), and then I punched 3/4" squares of all of the Memory Box cardstock. I made a full 8 1/2" x 11" sheet for the store owner and half sheets for my color binder. Here is how they turned out: These sheets could be used for any papers--Bazzill, Paper Tray Ink, Cut Cardstock, anything! It truly makes it easy for buying colors, matching, keeping products lists, etc. If you are interested in this file, you can grab it from my Memory Box blog here. I still haven't figured out how to attach files to Blogger but Typepad makes it easy. I just ask that you not share the file, that it be for your personal use, and that you link others too my link instead of giving them the file. I truly appreciate it!

Also, if you are in the Salado, TX, area in October or November, I will be teaching some Memory Box classes at Stamp Salado! Click on "Newsletters" and then "Don't Miss the Fun Classes Coming Up" for more information! I would love to see you in class!

I hope my latest "swatch" file is helpful! Next time, I will be sharing what I have done with my colored pencils. Agh, at last, I can find what I want to use! :) Have a blessed Friday!!!

I love your blog. I would like to participate more, just do not understand English. I wanted to suggest them to put up a translator.
