Sneak Peak – File Tab Edgelits (including free 2014-15 catalogue printable tabs)

Tomorrow is the 1st July – a new financial year, the middle of winter and ……… the arrival of the 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  My last sneak peak for you, before you can get your hands on it all yourself, is the File Tab Edgelits.  They come with 2 file tab edgelits and 3 number framelits (you may have noticed these in my picnic punch art card) – so many cute ways to use this very economical set.

If you like to be organised (and I do amongst the chaos!), then file tabs are a perfect addition to your catalogue for quick referencing of each section.  If you’d like to make these yourself, please download the file tabs document here and follow the instructions below.  If you’d like to purchase a set of ready made file tabs for your catalogue ($5 including postage Australia wide), please email me.  Kelly x

Note: some of the links to new products in this blog post will come up with an error until the catalogue becomes available to the general public on 1st July 2014.

Making your file tabs:

1. Download the file tab template.  Print the document onto any colour cardstock you like. I chose 4 different colours, so I could separate my catalogue into sections (Melon Mambo – stamp sets, Crushed Curry – Paper & Accessories, Old Olive – Tools, Bermuda Bay – Party & Index).

2. Cut 2.5cm off the top of your printed page and 2.3-2.5cm off the left side (this depends on how your printer prints – you may want to print a test page first to check the margins).

3. Starting at the left margin, cut three 5.5cm strips.

4. Take each strip and starting at the top margin, cut into 2.2cm sections.

5. You should now have 27 rectangles each measuring 5.5cm wide & 2.2cm deep with the writing roughly in the top middle.

6. Using the File Tab Edgelits, cut each of the rectangles into a tab shape.  I used the ‘middle’ tab edgelit, lining it up at the top edge of the cardstock and roughly in the middle.

7. Attach the tabs at even intervals (see page suggestions below).
