Ah Ha! Isn't This Clever?

Have you guys seen the Stampin' Color Index Labels in SU's Fall/Winter catalog? They are really easy to miss, but I'm really glad that I found them! I love organization. (wish I was better at it!) For $3.95 (US) you get 2 sheets (duplicates) of clear labels including all of SU's 48 colors + neutrals + the current In Colors.

I used my first sheet to make new labels for my file folders and the second sheet to label my ink pads and ink storage unit. By the way, this is a fantastic ink storage system that I found on Ebay. They are really reasonable and come in alot of different configurations. I like that the 'shelves' are repositional. It gave me extra room on the bottom shelf to store other supplies (ink refills, Fun Flock, Stickles, etc.) I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but there are also labels for color groups. I put these directly onto the wood unit. Some of my ink pads are new and don't have the color name on the outside - so these labels are so helpful! I just decided to put the labels on my old ink pads too, just to keep them looking more uniform.

If you don't already have a SU demo, I'd love to order for you anytime. Just drop me an e-mail. In August, for every order of $50 or more, I will give you 10% off. (please mention this in your e-mail as my 'bloggers special'. I'll let you know more details through e-mail. I can accept PayPal or money orders/CC.

And now for my 'Ah Ha!' moment! For those of you who own Copics--- I was trying to come up with a good way to remember which of my markers coordinated with my Stampin' Up! colors. I'm going to get an extra sheet of these labels and just put them directly onto my Copics! No more guessing game!


  1. I did miss those sheets! I will have to get some. Thnaks for the great tip!

  2. I didn't see those either! Thanks for the great tip!!

  3. WOW, you ARE clever! I love your storage system, it looks so organized. I only wish I could be so. I keep most of my ink pads in two shelf units like this too. I saw them at a yard sale a few years ago and knew they'd be perfect. But there is no real organization to mine.

    I like the idea of using the stickers on the matching markers too. See, you really ARE enabling me to get those Copics!

  4. I have not purchased any SU items yet but am planning on signing up within the next month or so and this was the best idea to see before I buy. I am huge on organization so this is right up my alley. :)

  5. I have these, and haven't opened them yet. Thanks for the awesome tips!

  6. OMGosh - what a brilliant idea!!!! Thanks for sharing that!

  7. Putting the labels on the pens is a great idea. Then you don't have to stop and look at a chart; it's just right there to use. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful tip.
