Paper crafting tools like stamps, dies and embossing folders can have a beautiful effect on your pages, cards and other projects, but keeping track of them can be difficult and overwhelming.
The best way to maximize tool use and minimize frustration is to create a catalog. I strongly recommend cataloging (7 reasons to catalog) all your tools together and following the 4 Section System. (You'll only use 3 sections for cataloging tools, but you can also create a color catalog for markers, paints, inks, etc. - learn more.)
What you will need:
- A binder – I prefer 12x12
- Page Protectors
- Scrap paper for cutting/punching examples
- Crayons – for doing rubbings of your embossing folders
- Label maker or permanent marker
- Label tabs – I prefer the plastic type
The next step is to create your catalog pages.
After you’ve created the pages add them to your binder and label each section.
Now you’re ready to start cataloging your tools.
