Good Morning, Stampers!
A great weekend was had here in Mohegan Lake, New York. Weather was seasonably cooler with a nice breeze and NO HUMIDITY!! We did some gardening, BBQing and I juggled my stamp business at night. So, it was a fun and productive two days.
Last week someone asked me how I remember what I use on all my projects when I post them on my blog?
So here’s what I do and even if you don’t have a blog post you can still follow this tip for your own craft making reference.
I always have one of those small 5″ x 7″ spiral notebooks at my work station. In the notebook I write everything I use as I proceed with the project. I begin with the stamp set I’m using.
Then, I write down the card stock or paper and ink colors.
I also write down the product number, which makes it easier for me when posting and linking the products in my blog posts as I’m writing them.
Everything gets jotted down including card stock sizes, embellishments, dies and any tool I used for that particular project.
If you don’t have a blog to post on, you can jot down what you’re using on an index card. When you finish your card, place it in a clear envelope and tuck the index card in the envelope behind the card. If you’re making a card to give away, always make another for yourself. This is easier then you think, because everything you’re using is out. If you’re anything like me it’s all out in a mess, but never the less it’s out!. Store all your cards in a pretty basket or a photo box. Again, this is a great reference for you to use in the future. To make another card, in the future, would be a cinch now with everything written down.
