Hi everyone! I haven't got much crafting done lately, I have been organizing my Cricut cartridges! I ran out of room on my shelf and keep buying more so I figured it was time for a change. I found a lot of great tips on the Cricut messageboard and on youtube. I decided to remove all of the books, overlays and cartridges from their packaging and store them using a file system. It was a lot of work! I bought some Iris plastic stacking drawers from Bed Bath and Beyond. I couldn't believe how perfect the dimensions of the drawers were! To make the file folders I scanned the back of each cartridge box and resized it in Microsoft Word to fit. I made the green tabs with the From My Kitchen cartridge. Once I had the folders together I laminated them with my YourStory machine. I decided to make little boxes for my cartridges to protect them. I used a bag cut from Once Upon a Princess and altered it with my Gypsy to fit.
I think I am really going to like this new system - it just seems so much easier to find the cartridge I want! I have put all of the cartridge boxes in a large rubbermaid in the storage room so they are there in case I ever change my mind. I tend to do that once in a while ;-)
