This is my desk bright and early this Wednesday morning... had to have a good clean up after getting paint everywhere yesterday doing the turntable drawers and I am now going to set to and start making all those chipboard drawers! When I took this photo a few minutes ago I had to laugh... if anyone out there doesn't believe in sublminal messaging... just take a look at this!
I have spent a good part of the last week looking through all my papers to figure out which ones I wanted to use on the turntable drawers... and then I spotted these and thought (quite smugly) they will be perfect!
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, now I wonder why I thought that??? ;)
This is the long cupboard to the left of my desk... and late last night I had a good sort out of what was going to be there... it's a nice to have bug and bigshot where you can use them... and all my dies and embossing folders were still in their packaging and took up a lot of room in one of my cubby holes... so earlier this week I had a light bulb moment! See the orange stripey book at the end of the shelf?
Yep! I made a book for all my embossing folders using the Kathy Orta hinge binding system! I love this way of binding books...
Would you look at that? This book has 20... yes, 20 embossing folders in it and it isn't even bulging open!
I put a pocket on each side of the page to hold the folders...
I added tags to the page with an example embossed onto cardstock and a little tag telling me who and what.
Added some ribbons and bling to the tags and voila!! I am so pleased with the end result and now I don't have 20 folders in their packaging slipping and sliding about in a drawer.
Don't forget to go over to the leader of the desks, Julia at the Stamping Ground, and link up for the ride of the week!
