Me... organizing?? whhaattt.

I don't know what got into me but I've been organizing like crazy!
First, I must explain some of the background in this photo! lol. The mannequin legs... for those of you who don't know me personally, I've had a leg problem since I was 13. My parents go back to Ohio every year and they asked what I wanted. I said "new legs please!" Ask and you shall receive!

At CHA, a booth was selling ribbon and this is how they had it all hung... with shower curtain hooks! The round ones could work just as well! I bought 2 3M hooks, the kind you can put up anywhere and take off any time without hurting the surface you put them on. I used a spring rod (I have no idea what it's really called, lol sorry!) and placed the hooks on it. When I need a ribbon, I take it down, since I had to put it pretty high on my wall cause I'm running out of room!

This is my 2nd organizing project! I bought a 3 inch binder and a box of transparencies. I used a 3 whole punch on the transparencies and on some white 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. I taped the front of the stamp transparencies (that has what the stamp looks like in a color) on the front of the transparency and placed the stamps on the back. Then place another transparency on the back and put the white piece of cardstock behind the 2nd transparency so I could see the stamps.

I of course STAMPED the side label!

These are 2 pages, all the other aren't this full, trust me!

These are the labels I made to make sections in my stamp binder. I used the Fabulous Finds Cartridge for the cricut. Those are also some of my favorite brads! I bought this paper cause I thought it would be so cute as a skirt, lol. A pencil skirt! Ohhh man that would be cute!



WOW! That looks great! Can you come to my house next??? : )

lol. i'd be happy to!


Looks great!

Spring rod = tension rod?

BTW, is the last picture supposed to read "Setiments" or "Sentiments?" Maybe "setiments" is a wordplay on "Sentiments" for sentiments placed (or set!)on cards and pages!

yyyesss, a tension rod! Couldn't think of the word, thanks!

Oops, did I write it wrong? I like how you think, lol. I will make another.. didn't even notice that.. that's what I get for doing it in the middle of the night =] Thanks so much for letting me know!!


Can you explain a bit more on the stamp binder....did you attach the edges of the two transparancies together somehow? And you stuck the top of the stamp to the transparancy behind the stickers? Thanks.

Of course! Each page of stamps has 2 8 1/2 x 11 transparencies. I tape the stamp transparencies to the the top 8 1/2 x 11 transparency. Then if the set of stamps has a back transparency, I just threw those away. You then add another 8 1/2 x 11 behind the stamps and it will stick to the stamps. Let me know if that helped at all! If not, I'll make a post for ya! =]
