Next, I thought I'd share some of my card supply organization.
First - my embellishment boxes. These are directly under my work surface - so very handy, very quick to grab. There are 18 containers in all, and while some are colored pencils and wood mount stamps, the majority of them are embellishments.
If my embellishments land in these containers, they are color coded. This is my yellow bucket. I've tried a lot of systems over the years - and color coding seems to work best for me. If something needs a touch of yellow - I just reach for the bucket. If I have a sheet of embellishments that only has two pieces left on it - I tear it down and sort it into the buckets.
At my left hand is my mail sorter. I almost didn't buy this sorter that day at the antique mall - but I'm so glad I did. It suits me perfect.
If you look closely you can see that my envelopes and cards take up a few slots
On the top shelf of the cupboard next to my desk, I have my 8.5 x 11 pieces of cardstock. Below that I have my 12 x 12.
Back to the mail sorter - it also holds my 6 x 6 pads of pattern paper (love these things - reach for them often, therefore they have prime real estate in the sorter) and between the sorter and my water bottle or my acrylic blocks for my stamps.
I shared my stamp storage system on another post.
A full picture of my work area is also on another post.
Cards, embellishments, envelopes and stamps - not much more is needed to make a card. I should go make a card. It IS World Card Making Day after all.
