Scrapper's Inventory Notebook
Pages to Print
Create your own Scrapbooker's Inventory Notebook so that you can keep track of all your goals, pages, swaps, and purchases. Keeping track of what you have and what you need is easier if it is all in one place. Let's create some sections and some pages for a inventory binder or planner. It will take about one evening to get the Inventory Notebook together.
Your headers for the major sections of the planner should contain the following dividers or tabs: GOALS, SHOPPING, INVENTORY, IDEA AIDS, and OTHER.
Next, create blank pages for the various items below, just make them up within your favorite print shop program. All you need is a title for the page and columns for a few basic items of data. This will easily work for an 8.5x11 3 ring binder. Or design and print them two to a page with landscape mode on your printer. This will fit most day planner page sizes. Once you make your own template in a print shop program you can print as many, or as few, as you need. We have pictures of many of these for examples. But make your own in the sizes and typeface fonts that YOU enjoy.
Fiber Inventory Sheet *
Embossing Stencil Templates- names or samples
IDEA AND JOURNAL AIDS
Timeline: Dates To Remember- create your own family timeline. This is invaluable! I use mine every time I crop. I also keep a laminated copy in my tote.
* Note, I do NOT inventory my papers, stickers, or general non-lettering die cuts and most page additions because I think that is too time consuming for what it is worth and I use my 'extras' and my papers too fast for such a listing to remain useful.
Instead I keep my page additions in a binder by theme as seen here
and my papers in a hanging file by rainbow order of color. I add them to my NEEDS list as I run low. I just keep track visually on these types of inventory because paper and stickers are such a consumable commodity. But if you like, go ahead and make an inventory sheet for yours. Then add it to your own notebook
