Double Line Doodle Preview

I used a new Stampin' Up! set that will be out in the July fall/winter catalog called Double Line Doodles. The pattern paper is from the DCWV spring matstack.

Cute Ribbon Storage

How cute is this idea for storing your ribbons?!?! These were made by Angie Kirka. Use something like a large coffee can that has a plastic lid. Remove any labels and prime and paint the lid. Punch holes in the lid with a hole puncher. Cover the can with decorative papers. The only draw back is that you need some room to put all the cans so if you have a lot of ribbon this might not be the best storage solution. Still a great idea!

Organizing Paper Scraps

I needed to get my SU cardstock scraps out of the zip lock bag and into something a little more organized. I found this accordion box last month at Hobby Lobby that works great. I was going to organize by color family and then by color, but it was just easier to do it by color - reds, greens, blues you get the idea. I don't know the exact dimensions off hand, but I cut a lot of 8.5x11 paper in half for my cards and a half sheet fits perfectly in it so it is a great size. It was 9.99 and I used a 40% coupon so it was only 5.99. They have a couple different sizes and since I picked my sticker collection down from hundreds of sheets to just a handful, I might buy another one in a different size to hold those.
