Autumn Organizing Tip!

Get organized this autumn with all your Close To My Heart products. Set aside a little time to create an easy system to save time and  get more use of all your supplies! 
 I like the note book, three ring binder system. I guess it's more "ol' school", but I find it easy to use any where. I have divided my Templates notebook into sections; Orginals, Wishes and Magic.
 In each section I have used page protectors as pockets to hold the templates that are with each of the  books. I have divided them up by the "page" as they are needed in each book.

The Magic book is easy to organize,  as it is printed with the page number on each template.
    Find a system that works for you, not you for it! Get organized and see how much easier it is to use  more of your supplies, more often. You will find you are able to create more in less time.  
  Watch for next week's Autumn Organizing Tip when I show you how I have used my Close To My Heart stamp sets more!   Happy Stampin'
*If you don't have any of the Close To My Heart card or scrapbook pattern books, you will want to order them! These are a "must have" in any stampers supplies. Be sure to click on the shopping cart on the left side of my blog to order today!
