I bought a Crop-in-Style Paper Sticker Binder a while ago, and had a blast filling it with all the stickers I had collected. However, I rarely use stickers in my layouts anymore. On the other hand, I have fallen in love with using ribbons, jute, eyelets, charms, and other "lumpy" embellishments, but they were taking over my scrapping space!

I emptied the PSB of all but my favorite stickers and put those in a box for future cards and projects with my girls. Then I went to work filling up the CIS-PSB with all my lumpy stuff. The various sized pockets are perfect for wound up twine, jute, and ribbon, various buttons, tiny clothespins, small slabs of cork, tiny mirrors, small bags of beads, wire and plastic mesh, etc.

I put my color wheel and instruction sheet in the front, and I use the larger inserts for patterned paper and wallies and die cuts that I love. I can easily flip through the binder to see what fun things to add to my layouts, and it slides right into my CIS-LX when I need to take it to a crop.
