This one was a task.
I knew it would be so I put it off….until now.

You know they didn't look like this to begin with.
I had stashed most of them under my desk.
I knew one day I would eventually have to sort them out, so I just kept stashing them under here.
I notice that this is a pattern for me, lol.

You know the 1st step to defunkifying is to round up all of the stickers in one place and go through them all.
I even grabbed my sticker binder and went through them as well.

Next step is to put them into categories.
The categories I chose that I think will work best for me were…
Letter stickers
Word stickers
Nature stickers
All others.

These are the left over supplies that were under the desk.
Funny thing was….I did this on a Friday and my friends were coming over that evening for Friday Night Scrapbooking.
So I stashed this back under my table and forgot about it until I edited this video.
The sad thing was, I had organized these areas already, so had to go back and re-do some, lol.

Here are my categories in more detail.
Letters- consist of Thicker type letters and chipboard letters.
Words- consist of anything with word on them, I also added rub on words. resin pieces with words.
Nature- consists of flowers, animals, fairies, outdoor theme, trees, fishing..again anything to do with outdoors or nature.
All Others- Birthday, baby, wedding, heritage, sister, family, travel….anything that doesn't fit in the first 3 categories goes into this bin.

I am not so nieve to think that I don't have more stickers hidden here and there amongst my other supplies that I haven't gone through yet.
But now that they are in order and all have a home, it will be easier to put the stray ones in their proper place.

My tips on Defunkifying my Supplies
1. Remove- Gather all of your stickers and put them in one area
2. Clean- Wipe down the area where you are going to store your stickers and where you kept them.
3. Sort- Sort your stickers into categories that work for you.
4. Purge- Donate any stickers that you don't think you will use in the future.
5. Organize- Put away and organize the remaining items.
I hope you are following me with defunkifying my scrap/craft room.
If you are, I would love to hear what you are working on :)

  6. Looking good! That is a large bunch of stickers!

  7. I finally had to admit that other than letter stickers, I do not use stickers that much. Once I acknowledged that, I was able to turn loose of them much easier. I donated a huge amount to a local non-profit craft store. I keep my alphabet stickers in large binders. I wish I could say that was it---but I also have boxes of alphabets sorted by colors! I've gotten better at turning loose of the ones I've used. Once the vowels are used up or other "most-used" letters, I just let it go!

  8. Congrats on another major area tackled. Stickers are one thing that I've gotten a handle on. For the most part I keep them with the paper line, unless they are alphabets. But my sticker basket does need a good tidy. Hmm, that might make for a good blog post of my own! Thanks for inspiring us as we follow along.

  9. Ok after your before and after pics- I have moved my thickers to the make baskets! thanks you - great idea -

    the long strips and dies do not fit the clear things - hmmm - lets she what other ideas you have I caN borrow!

  10. How many stickers LOL! You should open a Friday Night Scrapbooking pop up shop ;-)
