This Time It's for Me!

It's very rare that I make something for me when I craft, but when I saw this idea, I knew I had to do it. There wasn't anything wrong with the way I kept my cards separated before except it was with scraps of paper that always seemed to slip down into the box and get lost. This is my interpretation:

I chose to use soft colors for the dividers which are 6x6 and used my corner rounder. Then I cut copy paper into quarters and rounded the corners. I scored 1 inch from the top to give myself a reference point for the stamps. I had a stamp for all of them but 1. It was fun looking through all of my stamps to find ones for the holidays/seasons. I had to use an alphabet set for "fall." I also made a couple of blank dividers.

Here are the categories I have in no particular order: Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day, Halloween, Happy Birthday, Thank You, Just Because, Miss You, Thinking of You, Winter, Love, Christmas, Easter, Fall.

They were simple to make and make me happy when I look at them. It will also be easier to see what categories I need to fill in. It's the simple things in life that make me smile.

Enjoy the simple things!


  1. Good idea. I saved the dividers from the photo boxes I purchased and stamp the sentiment on them. But they are shorter than the cards so they get lost. This is a good idea. And since it's copy paper, it will bend easily when packing them for shipment.

  2. What a great idea and so pretty! Good for you for taking the time to do something for yourself, which we very rarely do. I totally agree - the simple things in life can bring us the most pleasure. Thanks for sharing with us!
