What's Your Impression of this!
Topic: In the studio

When you work in a library for 38 years you have a tendency to want to organize and catalog things. Just because you retire, that tendency does not go away.

I've been just keeping my embossing folders in a drawer and rummaging through them to find one that might suit the project I have in hand. So, I got them ALL out and made an impression of each on plain white cardstock. On the back I wrote the manufacturer and the folder name. Then I hole-punched them all and strung them on ball-chain.


I have them sorted by the style: dots, swirls, fabrics, grid, borders, oversize, mini, and many more categories.


I have these hanging over my work area so I can quickly find an appropriate design and then go find the folder to mak it on my project.
