“When I learned how to sew, I forgot how to cook.”
Scrapbooking borders have always driven me crazy. They are hard to store and thus hard to find when I need them. Everyone comes up with a different system for storing and finding things. So far, this has worked well for me. I used a 12×12 binder and 12×12 sheet protectors. I sewed lines of different widths on the sheet protectors using my regular sewing machine. I used small stitches. I made the distance between each stitched line different widths so that I could store different kinds of borders. Some pages have many stitched lines and some have a few wide spaces. Many of my borders from the past are on fat sticker sheets. They need to slip inside of a pocket that is about 6 inches wide. So, I varied the widths on each page. In they went ! Now, I can find every, single border without packing a lunch, because they all live together in one book.
“I used to come up with the perfect places for things.
Problem was that I couldn’t find them again.
Too clever is the same thing as lost.
Labeled and in plain sight is best.”
