Default Gina K Cardstock Help

I'm wondering if anyone can name the color that were included in the Assortment Packs around 2011. They assortments have changed and I can't tell for sure on my computer screen which colors I've got. Trying to get organized and make a card stock deck. The assortments I have were named Holiday, Summer, and Autumn. Thanks for any help!

OK, first you have to agree not to laugh at me for being so OCD that I wrote the colors down on index cards and tucked the cards into the bag with the cardstock - and that I still keep the assortments together in their ziploc bags.

Also, I can't be sure, but these probably were purchased sometime before 2011, so no laughing that I still have cardstock that age that I haven't used (the assortments aren't untouched, but they aren't used up by any stretch of the imagination.

Ok, now that you've signed off on my disclaimer:

Holiday: Wine With Everything, All Spruced Up, Cranberry Tart, Kraft, Red Hot

Summer: Wild Dandelion, Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango, Grass Green, Red Hot

Autumn: Fresh Asparagus, Black Onyx, Vibrant Violet, Pumpkin Spice, Sweet Corn

Thank you!

I have plenty of "untouched" supplies. Kind of went on a "hiatus" for a long while and now need to get organized to see what I've got.

Again, thank you!

I do this with all my paper that doesn't have the name listed on the bottom.

Summer: Wild Dandelion, Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango, Grass Green, Red Hot

Autumn: Fresh Asparagus, Black Onyx, Vibrant Violet, Pumpkin Spice, Sweet Corn
I do this with all my paper that doesn't have the names listed on them.

Diane - That makes me feel better I do remember thinking when I got them "gee, what if I decide I need to reorder some of this and don't remember the color name?" The only thing is, some of those colors aren't available anymore, and in the Holiday pack, the Wine with Everything and Cranberry Tart are really similar colors. One of them has a slight linen texture, and since the Wine isn't available anymore, I'm pretty sure that's the textured one.

I label all my colors. When I bought a pad of Core'dinations in Tim Holtz Distress colors I went through and compared each sheet to my Distress inks and wrote the names of each color on the edge of the sheet. I store my SU dsp in 2 1/2 gallon bags and write the names of each coordinating color on the bag. I just have a need to know what the names of all my colors are. It comes in handy for reordering, but I'd do it anyway.

Good to know there are others like me! I bought several packs of 12x12 A.C. cardstock but there were no names listed if I wanted to replenish my fav colors. So I contacted A.C. and they sent me a list of all the colors in each pack, then I made swatches and labeled all of the.!

I also label my cardstock by making a little keychain of small die cuts of each color and then using a small sticky label write the name on it. It's so handy when out shopping at craft stores to see what dp matches it!

OH and I also store all my GKD scraps in the original ziplocks with the slip of paper naming the color and then stand them all upright into a plastic tub! (yes I have LOTS of scraps! )
