I’m back again with another project for you. This week, I’m on a mission to organise my FJ journal cards – that’s right… all of them!
I’m sure, like me, you’re hoarding a yummy bundle of journal cards. Why wouldn’t you? They’re perfect for so many projects and I don’t just mean pocket pages. You can fussy cuts elements from them, you can layer photos behind them on layouts, you can use them for planner spreads – they’re ace.
I decided that I wanted to find a prettier way of storing my cards than just a big ol’ pile. I’ve been relocating a lot of my die cuts on my desk into little drawers so while scrolling through stationery websites for more drawers, I came across index card boxes. After a quick measure up, I discovered that those little boxes would perfectly fit my journal cards with room to spare, so I ordered one.
Once my little box arrived, I went to work separating out all my different cards into the original collections they came from – the FJ shop helped me with this. I rummaged through my 12x12 papers and picked out a favourite paper from each collection to create a divider for each section. After cutting my papers to journal card size, I used a tab punch to create some cute tabs.
While trying to work out how I would write on the tabs, so I could identify each section, I suddenly realised that Jeana had done the hard work for me by beautifully labelling each collection on her paper branding strips – see, I’m always saying the branding strips are awesome! Haha
I went to work carefully cutting out each collection name from the branding strips and glued them to my tabs so I’d be able to easily see which collection I was flipping through – darn clever.
So, there we go, my super cute little index box of journal cards. I hope you like the idea and maybe even give it a go yourself. You could easily divide your cards by collection, colour or anything you fancy.
Take care guys and stay safe and well.
