This year I am once again documenting with the two main core kits I used last year seafoam edition & Midnight edition of the Project Life line, but also wanted to add in another fave core kit ... Sunshine edition this is a new one for me this year and I already love it. That's a total of three core kit's but due to my dwindling supply of seafoam I am not sure how much or how long it will last in this years album(s) I have been using two albums per year.
All three of these kits work great together and while I'm a strong believer in not over stressing or over thinking about the kits and remind myself that it's really all about the photo's not just the paper - but come on these papers are AMAZING!
When I first get a kit I open it and start making piles of that card ... left overs are awesome and having access to digital files to reprint is even more awesome! Once I make these piles of cards I can see the ones I am going to LOVE then I start to pile them all up by order of colour ( still keeping them within their own groups of designers) I am sure there is a million ways to organize your cards but for me this has worked very well.
With keeping things simple and not overwhelming I bought a tray container from Ikea, actually I bought three of them I knew that I would want to work on my Project Life all over the house and not just in my office space. I love having that freedom of moving around the house. The Ikea trays worked more than perfect for this job.
Listing the cards by designer with an insert card I made with kraft paper and title at top to list the designer. They fit perfect in the tray slots & dividers that the container has. I also use it to keep all my go to supplies as seen above I keep button/badges, stamps, wood veneers, Ink pad, more stamps, pens, glue pens, tape runners, more pens, tiny attacher stapler, and the cards.
These two trays have been a true life saver for me in the keeping things simple and at arms reach when I want them, again being able to move around to create is super important right now due to office space changing in the winter months (sunroom closed in winter and I use the basement space as an Office - which has mega space and a fireplace but not the best light) Hoping to share a office tour once it's back in the sunroom again. That's pretty much it for supply organization for me - again super simple is key.
