Top Tip Tuesday ... Number 7...

Happy Tuesday everyone.  At Humbug Hall things are much quieter now that Max is in the Scottish wing and Ann is in the Yorkshire wing so we thought we would give everyone a wake up call with a new Top Tip.
Here at the hall we've been sorting out all our card stock into separate drawers to try to make things easier to find.  Hmm, famous last words, sheesh who bought all this stuff?  Anyway things are looking pretty good now with each card size having it's own storage space and even better we've put fragranced sachets in each drawer.  Oh lavender scented card stock how special is that?
Naturally you could add whatever fragance you like and it might even be possible to get Christmas themed sachets so that your Christmas cards smell of pine or maybe cinnamon.  We think that would make them extra special.
If you have any more ideas on the best way to give cards an extra special aroma please let us know in the comments box as it's great to share those brilliant ideas.
Don't forget this week's challenge 'A card to make you giggle or smile'.  As always we've had some fantastic entries some making us smile and some almost causing us to fall of our chairs laughing and before anyone says anything no that wasn't the red wine!  To join in this week's challenge either scroll down or click on the link HERE.
Love and stuff

  1. Thanks for the tip - I often try to sort my card and paper but can never decide on colour, size, thickness and so on so it all tends to stay in a bit of a muddle but I can usually find things - eventually!! Now scented card that's another idea 'cos it could be sorted by aroma.

  2. Nice one, I can smell your drawers from here lol.

  3. ooooooooooh er Pinky - there's always one to lower the tone isn't there?
    It's usually me!!! LOL

  7. I just sort my cardstock by colour and keep it in a Bisley 15 drawer cabinet (all A4). I can see at a glance when supplies are getting low. I have more cardstock than you can shake a stick at!
