Using & Organising Swatches

Hello there, today I thought I would share with you how I am organising my swatches. A little while ago Jennifer McGuire kindly shared downloads for making swatches for your ink pads. I loved the fact that they were printed so they were neat and tidy ... you know I am all about the clean lines ;)
 
I decided to go ahead and make swatches for all my ink pads as well as my Distress Markers, Wink of Stella pens, mists, embossing powders and my watercolours are in there also. At the back I have swatches of my two most used cardstocks - Papertrey Ink and Bazzill Cardshoppe. I have the little 2x2" cardstock squares kept in the Simple Stories Insta Pockets and those all kept in the binder (thank you to Stephanie Klauk for the idea). The binder fits nicely on the top shelf of my Raskog :)
 
Here is one of the pages for my TH Distress Inks, I love how pretty it looks:

 
Here is a video showing all the pages:

I hope this might help any of you who haven't already seen this idea from Jennifer. I have been using it for a little while now it has really helped me in choosing inks and cardstocks and knowing the names of the them. I can also see quickly at a glance which supplies I have. Thanks so much for visiting me today :)

  1. Morning Michelle, I'm also using the Simple Stories pockets and Jennifer's swatch templates. I've not got them in a folder yet though, I've just put a ring through the wallets. I love the folder you've used so maybe I'll get one of those too. Thanks for the video,a fab as always!!! Rebecca x
