DIY – Dyeing Seam Binding and Lace

I love using vintage looking accents in my cards and scrapbook pages.

I’ve learned several ways to dye my ribbons and trims, using various ink and paint brands and am happy to share this trick with you!

 

Here are some examples of cards I’ve made using my hand dyed seam binding:

Scrapbook Organization Woes

Now that I have more space (thanks to a huge liquidation sale last month), I’m working on reorganizing my scrapbook stash and spreading things out.
I’m having the hardest time organizing!
Don’t get me wrong ~ I love looking at my favorite papers and embellishments over and over again (wishing I had a bigger family just so I’d have more pictures to scrap). So many great papers, so few events…
Anyway, the question of the day is:
How do you organize?
Sort by color? Theme? Brand? Season? Alphabetical? Shopping trip?
I think I’ve moved sections of goodies to different areas about 3 or 4 times so far. At first it was all the Vintage/ephemera themed goodies (my favorite right now). That was too big and still strangely random. Then, I sorted by brand. But what if a Basic Grey sheet would go perfectly with a Graphic 45 piece and I’ll never know about the greatest pairing since argyle and socks because one was upstairs on a paper wrack and the other downstairs next to the mac and cheese?!
Also, what in the scrap do you do with all of those sections of paper that are partially used, but match other 12×12 sheets or kits?! I have a ton of 13×13 baggies and I try to keep everything together that way. Now, it just looks like my scrap drawer is a Ziploc Ad. Nothing lays flat or even makes sense. I never even know what I have (yet I still find myself shopping at the craft store each time a coupon comes in the mail).
Any advice? I’d love to hear what you do for storage and organization! Also, any organizational brands/items that you really like? I think laying things flat (700 sheets deep) is no longer working for me. Things are getting squished and wrinkled (although it saves time distressing my paper).
It’s my goal to get organized this week ~ wish me luck!
