My Product Inventory Book

Pin It! 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.

Such an AWESOME Idea Christie!!!!! I love it!!

Very good idea Christie. I like how professional it looks as well. I started a similar book a while back ago, about 5 years! and wish I would have finished and kept up with it then cause I cannot imagine attempting it now. They are a lot of work, howver I do the same thing, go to the store and come back with the same stuff! Having a real time with it right now with my alcohol and distress inks. I have quite a stash that needs to be taken back! Thanks again~ Sherry F.

Once again you show how creative you are. I really need to do the same. What program did you create your templates on?

Hello Christie,

really a good organizing idea and neatly done but... maybe you have too much stuff ?!? ( just my thoughts...)

greetings from belgium

Love this! I started something much more simplistic several years ago - just lists of each item/color name in a small spiral notebook but outgrew it far too fast. Wish I had done something more like this! I will be downloading those charts from Ranger for sure! I can't wait to see your whole book completed! Awesome!

Great idea!

Christie, you had me GMBO over your comment:-
"then find out I already own that too. I guess I know what I like." Tooooooo cute!

Love your inventory book! TFS! :-)

Wonderful tag, love the roses and the background for sure!

Great tag! I haven't done a grunge rose in quite a while - have to work on that. And I love the metal background!

I have been playing with making a book like this for myself. Thanks for sharing yours. Just one question, where on the ranger site did you find the pages to download? Thanks

Great idea! You own a lot more than I do, but I found I had to make a list of embossing folders so I don't duplicate them. I printed it small enough to slip in my purse. Other things, like ink and inkpads, I don't own enough to forget - so far! When my supplies expand, I may be following your example.

I am so happy to see these examples. I have been wondering how to organize what I have and to put it in a book. I have been making lists of things, but a book like this would be great. Where did you get the charts that you used? I can't wait to see more pictures of your book.
