One sheet each of the card stock cut into thirds with a home comb binding thingie - voila! You'll have your own "color book"! I like that idea - color wheel does nothing for me either - it's slick and glossy, paper isn't! AND when you can hold the paper next to another, you might combinations you never thought of. Guess I'm visual/tactile!

Default Color Book

I saw this the other day and I've got my 1/4 pages cut out of my paper and all I need to do is go to Kinkos!

I love this idea and I think it's so much nicer than the color wheel...since not all of the colors are on there!

I got the cardstock/eyelet and designer paper rings from there and just love them! It is so nice to see what versamark or color-on-color or bleach looks like w/o having to waste a piece of paper. Or to pull out a sample if someone is interested in a paticular designer paper that I don't have (yet!).

Good idea. I'll make one myself before I pay $25 plus shipping for one, but it's a good idea. I've seen some cool variations on things like this. I need to get in gear and make one.

So what size paper do you all think would be good to cut the strips? Is there a standard size of the comb bindings that's smaller than what you would use on a full sheet? I'd like to cut some and maybe take them to Staples but I don't want to end up with the 8 1/2 X 11 size. I like things small.

This is a great idea for your own use or to give away to a hostess, but it is VERY ILLEGAL TO SELL as a demonstrator. If you are a demonstrator, it is illegal to sell ANY current merchandise on e-bay, including cardstock, and is terms for immediate dismissal. I just wanted to make sure that any of you considering being a demonstrator are aware of this. I think that the flip book looks great and would be a wonderful way to compare cardstock. It would also be a cheap and easy door prize or hostess gift, but a quick way out of SU! if you got caught trying to sell it.

Default Here's what I did

I took our large square punch and punched out a square for every color on the color wheel. Then I mono'd them all together in the group of 5 and punched holes in the top square. Then I put them on an o-ring. It is exactly the color wheel then, but easier to see the colors w/ the real paper. It has been a big hit. All of my sidelines/uplines have either asked me to make them one or made them themselves. It takes very little time and paper!!

I'm working on a scanned image. I will upload it in a minute!

My upline's-upiline's-upline started doing this with her downline groups. I'm a little too far removed to have taken part in this when it was done. However, I too have cut my own pieces, labelled them, etc. And when I'm through, I'm going to beg (or maybe buy by way of SU! products) the use of a friend's laminator. I like the Cobleigh Creations but I need them with $CAD on them.

Default lets see if the scan worked

For some reason my adobe photo shop isn't working, so I'm scanning w/ another program. I hope it works.

It didn't work, I've gotten adobe to work and uploaded it later. Didn't see that I could edit my message until later.

Default Cardstock book

My upline made these and she included stickers on each of the sheets. On the big piece the sticker listed the color and all the products that are available in that color with the coordinating number. Then on the other two pieces it was just the name, but she stamped in the appropriate color once directly from the stamp pad and then again a second time to show the lighter version. I use it ALL the time and have even purchased a few from her for my hostesses.

On DIY Scrapbooking they made one of these a while back!
I believe it was the first time I ever got to watch the channel!
THey might still have directions on their website!

Good luck with it!

Are you sure it is illegal to sell these? It is not selling cardstock, it is selling a business tool. I would think it would be like selling a card. I just wanted to double check on this.[/quote]

If you want to be sure you can sell something like that call SU and find out. Maybe you're right and they'd consider it a business tool.
I always wondered about the people selling pre-cut cardstock. Has anyone ever asked SU about that?
If you call, let us know what they say.

As I understand policy, it would not be illegal to sell these. You are not selling card stock, you are selling a book to help people choose their card stock and find color combinations. Furthermore, you can sell cards which are made with SU cardstock but by your theory, you cannot. And while I wouldn't sell it on e-bay only because I don't like e-bay, I would sell it to my customers or even a craft fair. And on a side note, people sell sets all the time and SU seems to be (unfortunately) doing nothing let alone immediately dismissing people. Taking this one step further, if you hand stamped the corner of each page, you would be adhering to the angel policy making it completely legal to sell.

Regarding home comb binding - you can cut the combs down to whatever size - I'd say 6 inches long and then you could have 3 - 2 inch strips - it's versatile - whatever size you want!

Hi,
I was curious so I called DS to see if demos can sell cardstock rings, cs booklets, eyelet samples, etc. They said absolutely not. Demos cannot sell anything with any of the current SU cardstock, eyelets, ribbons, brads, etc. Unfortunately this even means they can't sell the little cardstock tabs for your cs file system, etc... even if it's considered a business tool. I guess they're going to be cracking down on those things as much as they are on people selling current stamp sets. Well, just thought I'd share the info. I had thought about selling cardstock rings, but now I know I can't. I'm glad I called.

Well, back to the original topic, I just love the flip book idea! This seems pretty simple to make and I can see the colors right next to each other. I, too, bought the color wheel and only use it when I'm stuck on a color combination. I rarely go by what the wheel says, though. I just use it to get me started.
Where can I find the comb thingy for binding my book? We have an Office Max and I'm thinking that would be a good place to look.

I bought a SU Cardstock Sampler ring from someone someone online recommended to me!! <g> It was $6 plus $2 shipping and I love it! It's not a flip book, but works well for what I need it for. The gal who makes them prints the order numbers for all the products right on the cardstock swatches. She also has the vellum, metallic papers, etc.

Another idea for making your own flip book would be to use Rollabind discs. I use Rollabind for my own personal journal-keeping, and I LOVE it!

I bet if you called back and got someone different you might get a different answer. I guess it's all in how you ask the question.

I agree you wouldn't be able to sell them to your customers at a SU event, but just as you can can sell handmade cards, coasters, gable boxes, etc.... at non SU events (craft fair or what have you), you should be able to sell these. Stamp an image on the corner in the same color ink, and the SU angel policy stamp on the back.

I'll e-mail the question to DS and see what they say.

OOPS!
I posted that demos cannot sell cardstock rings, etc. (see post about 4 or 5 before this one). I should have clarified that I meant DS said demos cannot sell those items on ebay or on any internet website, etc. I didn't ask if a demo could sell them at craft fairs or things of that nature.
Sorry if I caused confusion about this.

Bought my comb binder at Office Depot - probably - office supplies were my first addiction. Anyway - you can probably purchase the punch for around $30 - $40 - it's like a big hole puncher and a box of comb thingies wasn't all that much for 50 or 100, can't remember. Used it to put together church cook books. That's the small, manual model - they have bigger and better and more automated models. But the tool punches the holes and then opens the comb so you can lay the pages in. Like my lay person jargon? I don't know the model I have, but I've used it for other things and now I can see all kinds of applications! I could probably do my own catalog, but I think that would be a lot of work! Especially trying to get the glue spine off. BUT I'm excited that now all I need to do is buy 1 package of each of the assortments and the other papers and I'll have a color book. NEVER would have thought of that on my own!!!! THANKS so much!

What a neat give-away prize, door prize drawing, quarterly hostess appreciation gift! A special something for your stamp club members or big money hostesses! My gears are going now! Lots of ideas and applications!

Here is my totally dumb question: Which colors are you putting where?? Top row what colors, middle row.. bottom row what colors? Are you just making them random? Or is there a preferred placement of the colors?
This would be about the original color book that was pictured on ebay.
Thaks!

Hi Everyone -- a big time lurker here!!! I just created a color chart tool that i would love to share with everyone. I saw this idea on an auction site, and i thought it would be a great idea to try.

You could easily mass produce them and sell them if you had the time and energy. These would also make great downline gifts (don't worry, heather, you're first on my list for one!!!!) The price for the laminating and spiral punching was under $5.

Essentially, it has 3 sections that has each color so that at any given moment, you can view 3 different colors together. Each color swatch has the name of the color printed on it. The cover file I included is pretty basic -- you can stamp on it with whatever you would like. I trimmed mine and then layered two other colors behind it (choc. chip and cameo coral).

I really hope this makes sense and that someone can use it.


Basically, I:
1. printed the names of the color on each sheet of cardstock (use the attached Microsoft publisher file)
2. Then cut the cardstock in half (so that the finished measurements of the book are 8.5x5.5).
*** I also printed out a list of color combinations I like and a few others i compiled from the new catty. I also printed out a color inventory chart from another demonstrator database. These were printed on the same size paper, so they would fit into the new booklet
3. I then took all 48 sheets of cardstock to an office supply store and had them laminate the cover I made and had them punch holes through all the sheets. I also had them add a back page of a heavy duty material which they also punched holes through
4. I also bought the spiral piece to thread through each piece from them.
5. I then took the punched sheets home, cut each piece of colored cardstock into equal thirds (being very careful to keep them all in order)
6. Next, I thread the spiral piece through each piece.
7. And, WOW! An awesome tool to help me see color combinations!!!

This is a pretty cool idea. I love how it allows you to see the color combination side by side. I may have to copy this idea and make a few for my scrapping buddies. Thanks for pointing this out. My head is going a mile a minute now.

The cardstock doesn't always bleach out to the same color. You can have black cardstock that bleaches to a blue tint one time and then the next time you use black, it could bleach to a yellowish color. It has to do with the batch of cardstock and what colors were manufactured before it. There was a great article in Stampin Success a few months back about the manufacturing process of cardstock.

Called and yes, got a different answer. And while the hard and fast rule is ABSOLUTELY NOT on the internet ~ ebay, et al ~ craft fairs are actually okay if it's bound and has a stamped image on it as long as the "angel policy" stamp is on the back. Basically it's not a business tool but a creativity tool. A book like this or a card stock ring help people create cards for themselves. What they don't want is us selling packs of card stock but a book for personal use is okay.

And to answer the question as to what colors go where, you put all the colors in and then mix and match to see what you like when you look at the colors.

So many great ideas! I've been using a couple of homemade color charts and have been planning on making the one with the paper cut in thirds. . . but would really like to add a selection of the nuetrals to the side, maybe bound on the right hand side.

Aubrey27,

Do you have a list of the color wheel combos for each of the 5-color swatches? I don't have the color coach. I could sit and try to figure it out, but I could definitely use the time more productively if you already have them listed.

A lot of great ideas here. Didn't get to see the ebay post. They had already removed it. Thanks for the ideas, can't wait to try it. My CS is pack away due to remodeling upstairs.
