My Filofax Tabs

Hello and welcome to the blog. Today I'd like to talk about my newest obsession, my Filofax. I am loving this organizer and am having so much fun making tabs for it and figuring out how I want to organize it. 

The store where I work,  Simple Pleasures Rubber Stamps and Scrapbooking starting carrying these this month and as soon as I got one I was hooked. My boss Cathy will ship these (or any products) so if you want to buy one make sure to call the store and see what we have in stock. 719-528-1338

Here are some of the tabs I've made for my Filofax
This was the first tab that I made, I used Memorybox stencils and Archival ink. I also used butterfly wash tape around the edges, this one came out simple but I love it
I used a Memory Keeper Punch to make the tabs in the side, labeled "Notes" this is a perfect punch for making tabs, the punch even comes with clear plastic tab covers, its awesome! We also sell the tab punch, stencils and inks at the store

For my next insert I used my round gel plate and Dina Wakley paints to create this fun page. I used several different stencils for the numbers and texture in the background. (this is my budget tab)

For my next insert, I used a combo of acrylic paints and Dina Wakley paints. My stamped images are from Stampotique Originals and I used Copic markers to color them. This is my opening page for my filofax

As you can see I love color, this insert is no exception. I used Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamp set along with the die set (makes it easier to cut out these cool birds) and colored my images with Copic markers. For my background I used Dina Wakley Paints again and I added some washi tape and doodling. The tab for this page says "Store Cards" I will keep all those darn store cards behind this tab.

Last but not least, I created this insert with Wendy Vecchi crackle texture paste in white and also her regular texture paste, I used the paste through a bunch of different stencils.
Next I added Tim Holtz distress inks in several colors
you can see what colors I used in the photo below
you can also see that I added a tag at the top of this page

I added black cardstock letters cut out with Tim Holtz Word Play Sizzix Die

This tab is going to be my Budget Tab, I switched this one and the gelli plate one from above. That tab was changed to "lists"

So those are my tabs so far, I plan to hopefully make a few more but I think I'm well on my way to having my filofax organized the way I like it. 
All of the products in this post you can get at the store Simple Pleasures Rubber Stamps and Scrapbooking
and this is our Facebook page where you can see more photos of Filofax ideas. 

Take care and thanks for stopping by today

  2. First...I didn't know you were working at a Scrapbook store...yay you! I LOVE that! Second, an art journal filo fax is brilliant! I LOVE the size, I love that it's removable and practical and gorgeous! Great pages too!

  3. Love this idea! I did not know you worked at Simple Pleasures. Next time I am down from Denver visiting my SIL, we will definitely say hi. We always plan a shopping trip to Simple Pleasure when I visit my SIL in Calhan. Have a great day Claudine.
