Until just last year, I wasn’t one to make resolutions. But my 2012 “resolution” to try a new restaurant every week went so well, I thought I’d try another one in 2013. This year’s resolution is a little more traditional with a goal to organize my house—one area at a time.
Our digital designer, Jalise Hansen, is making my 2013 resolution so much easier. With this Tuesday’s release of Label This Kitchen Designer Template, I was able to organize three separate spaces in my kitchen.
Want to take a look at my progress so far?
Let’s start with my flour and sugar canisters. I had been using these canisters without any labels and I was forever forgetting which sugar was which. I also plan on adding a whole wheat flour canister, so the labels will be super handy!
I used aluminum foil to grab an impression of the recessed labels and used it as a template to cut out my canister labels.
Moving from this quick project, I organized my spice drawer next. I used the bellyband option from the template and then organized all the spices in alphabetical order by spice jar type.
I’m in the process of converting from round jars to square ones. This will be perfect for the bellybands as I’ll be able to slide them off and on that much easier.
If you store your spices upright, a great idea would be to use the circle label from the download on the top of your jars. This way when you replace a spice jar, you can simply unscrew the lid with the label and use it on the new jar.
And the last space in my kitchen that I organized was my pantry. I added a coat of gray paint to it several months back and purchased a bunch of containers. I couldn’t wait to use this gorgeous quatrefoil shape to label all of them. And that reminds me of one of the best things about this download—the shapes coordinate with our Window Frames Collection and Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies so they are easy to cut out with the Big Shot. (Talk about a time-saver!)
I can’t wait to organize even more spaces in the coming weeks *wink wink.*
How do you plan on using these gorgeous labels?
