This Martha Stewart desk organiser from Staples was a gift at Christmas 2012 and has held various items last year, but this year I cleared it out to house my Project Life items.
The front section on the left is perfest for 3x4 cards. I made some colour index cards and used my Jenni Bowlin tab punch to colour coordinate the tabs. All my spare cards are now organised by colour. The right hand pocket holds 6x4 cards and tags. I used my Silhouette to cut the file tabs ( you can download the free file here if you want it) and made some index cards in Kraft. They too are organised by colour. Tags on the right.
I also made different file folders with tabs for my go to items e.g. a card of buttons or enamel dote, rub ons or cork stickers, items I think will be good for PL. I did habve them all jumbeld up in this back section, now I can see at a glance the types I have to hand.
On the lower shelf I have two plastic trays, one with frames in and one with die cut labels in.
In the drawer I have organised some embellishments in old business card boxes from hubby. I have my wood veneer letters, pins and clis, brads and flair, gems and pegs, along with sequins in some mini jam jars I collect when we stay in hotels.
I showed on Instagram how I was making some cheat sheets for my digital stamps.
When I buy a set from Studio calico I right click the page in the shop and save the image. I then printed that off at 6x6 and taped them into a Daybook I made here, with some washi tape. They are now all to hand! My collection is growing and although I add them to Photoshop, occasionally I would open it up and they were not there!!
My stamps are organised using the Kinsey Wilson method of DVD case organisation from SC, with the backing sheets taped on A5 paper and added to a matching A5 file from Martha Stewart. This is my stamp reference file.
Now I have completed 6 months of PL kits at Studio Calico, I have all the empty storage boxes.
These are now in my drawer containing; Small alpha tags; Mini envelopes; Twine; Glassine bags; Tags and my giant roller stamp.
My desk has my current PL kit and my current stamps out on top.
I think I have come a long way since I started in Jan 2012 with just this! TFLx
