Stamped Images Dividers

I can't believe how fast I have become addicted to the world of Magnolias and other stamped iamges as well.  Through swaps and my own collection of ever-growing stamps, I have amassed a good number of stamped images.  In my "perfect world" there is a place for everything and everything is in it's place.  However; in reality, I spend hours upon hours searching for whatever it is I'm looking for at the time.  Well, in my quest for organization, I have stumbled across a CD organizer and have discovered it's the perfect size for many things: My embossing folders, my spellbinders mounted on magnets, and now my stamped images!  I know I'll need more than one, but I figured I needed some way to organize my images.  So here's my start:

I cut my divider out of chipboard, then cut the tabs from my Cricut.  For this side, I followed the sketch from A Spoonfull of Sugar and I love the way it turned out.  I used my favorite color combination of pink and brown, as well as my favorite paper from SEI and Kaisercraft.  I cut out Waiting Tilda with my oval spellbinders, inked the edges with Tim Holtz walnut stain, added some pink bling and a flower from Prima.

The other side's picture turned out kind of blurry, but I hope you can still get the gist of it.  For this side, I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and love the simplicity of it.  I cut out Birthday Tilda with my circle spellbinders and used a lace doily behind it.  I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and used the same paper, flowers, and bling from the opposite side.

I don't like my writing on the labels, so when I can come across my labelmaker (Where did I put that thing?), I'll use that to write the name of the collection and the year.

Here's a shot of the divider in the box with the stamped images behind it.  I have a long ways to go, but hey, at least it's a start!

I figured I'd also show you a picture of the way I organize my Spellbinders too, since I eluded to that earlier.  I cut the front of the package and adhere it to a piece of chipboard.  Then, on the back, I attach a sheet of magnet and write the name of the Spellbidners as well, making it easy to find the ones I'm looking for.  My embossing folders also fit in this box as well - I love it!
