Ringbinder rave

DH has flu, J's ear problem is ongoing and I feel knackered. My Swiss friends will see all is not well as I've posted a picture of a ringbinder on my Blog. My aversion to ringbinders has become a bit of a standing joke which all started when a good friend of mine excitedly bought a huge box of them as she loves to file EVERYTHING! she's the only person I know to have punched holes in a Pottery Barn catalogue, now if you know how thick those things are then you'll know that's what's called commitment to filing. Anyway I've posted this pic for a reason, I found this link the other day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYuFWdLWCS4 I absolutely love what Marion does with this card, just when you think she's finished she adds a bit more, brilliant techniques to create loads of layers. I was also fascinated by her binder full of stamps, I suppose this is what everyone does already but how clever is that? why didn't I think of it before? (Hera mate, stop laughing I can hear you on the other side of the lake...)


Consequently, I took out all my stamps and made vague subject pages and I love it, totally inspiring! I also discovered the odd stamp I'd bought twice (in different sizes of course) and low and behold I found the TEAPOT!! I swear I looked in that box, really I did...

Thank you for pointing me to this link! I was absolutely fascinated looking at how this card developed...
All the best for you and all of your family. Hope you won't catch the flu as well!

Hey, can´t believe that you´re talking about me here, LOL! Actually, the FAT binder in the video is my sister´s (because my BIL has made the video in their house), but of course I have my stamps in a similar, just not as many :-) Without this system, I´d never find the appropriate stamps for my projects ...
