Whenever I post a card I try to include all the particulars so that if you see anything you like you know exactly what I used. To help keep it together I use simple jump rings with identification tags. This is also really helpful for me when I am creating a card. I shudder to think of all the different ink pads and colors I own. How do I know exactly what shade of green I want to use without getting them all out and trying them?
Here is a photo of my swatches of cardstock. I am addicted to Papertrey card stock and purchase this brand almost exclusively now. If you have other favorites you can simply notate with a letter the brand for easy reference.Here are my swatches of seam binding. I buy Hug Snug brand and have my rings color coded. I leave the tails long so that I can drape them across my project to see exactly what shade will work best to coordinate with the other materials I'm using. So many colors to choose from.
These are my swatches for We R Memory Keepers Corner Chompers. I have the name of the cut written on the tag and I have a stripe of color drawn on the swatch that matches the handle color of the Corner Chomper. For Example, If I want to use the "Photo" cut (the swatch has a pink stripe) then I want the pink handled Corner Chomper.I keep all my rings on hooks in my scrap room. They are all within arms reach so I can grab them for easy reference when I make something, or for when I need to make a list of different products I used for a project.
I hope this inspires you and will help keep you organized!
