I've been compiling lists for quite some time of all the products that I have accumulated over the years because every time I go to the store I always seem to come home with something I already own. I then have to head back to the store to return it. I then see something else "I can't live without" and then find out I already own that too. I guess I know what I like. So I was determined to come up with a good system to keep from double purchasing. I started with a 7 Gypsies hard book cover and worked around that size. It is 5.5" X 7". It is not done yet but I will bind it with my Bind It All when it is done. I am determined to have it done by next weekend. I wanted to share with you some of the pages that I do have done.

For the embossing powder samples I used the same glue dot technique I use on the tops of my bottles. The Stickles I had a color sample I printed on the sheet and then if I had the color I put a glob over the color sample so I knew I already own it and what it exactly looked like. Nice way to have all product samples in one place.
For my ink pad samples above I used a Q-Tip and placed one dot to the left if I have a large ink pad in that color and a dot if I had a dew drop in that color. I will add another dot if I get the reinkers but at the moment I don't have any.
My distress ink and dabber charts were blank. I downloaded them from the Ranger site, I think. I scaled it to my sheet size and then using my inker or dabber I placed a dot in the coordinating squares. I still have a lot of work to do on my little book but I know it will keep me from over purchasing in the future. I have a page with Cricut Cart., Cuttlebug, Rubber Stamps by brand, etc. I love it. I will post when it is complete.
