Reorganized Pantry with Chalkboard Labels made using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge

I've been on a little reorganizing kick lately so I decided to tackle the pantry yesterday. Check out the result...

The first thing I did was purchase the storage containers, then I came home and got right to work and removed ALL the food from the pantry. My kitchen looked like a bomb went off, it was covering all the counter space... thank goodness my hubby wasn't home and never had to see that mess. Before I started organizing I went through and tossed all the expired foods and the boxes the foods came in. This way I could store them much easier in the new containers I bought and it takes up less space.

Once I went through it all I organized the foods into like items, made a list of all the labels I wanted to make and then headed right to the craft room. I actually started with white cardstock and just searched online for a free chalkboard image download and made it into 8.5" x 11" size so I could print it out on cardstock. I know DCVW makes a great one but I didn't want to go buy one at that moment and wanted to get it done. ;) I'll share my jpg file with you, HERE!   

I printed out 3 sheets of the chalkboard background and then got out my handy dandy Artiste Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart. I cut the top note looking shape on the chalkboard paper at 2" and then cut white cardstock at 2 1/4". Once I had all 20 something of them cut out and adhered together I grabbed my CTMH Friendship Small Alphabet Stamp Set and a CTMH White Ink Pad. I just started going down my list and stamping right smack in the middle of my labels until I had them all completed. It didn't take me long once I had my little system down.   

After I got them all stamped I used my CTMH Heat Tool to dry them since the White Pigment Ink takes a little time to dry and I didn't want to wait any longer to get my kitchen and pantry back together. If you have time to wait then you wouldn't need to use the heat tool them but I was impatient. :) Next I used some CTMH 3D Foam Tape, added a small piece to each end, then placed them directly on the red containers and began filling them with the foods to match the labels.

It was fun! Crazy as that sounds... I love having it all done now and seeing this bright, organized pantry. It was inexpensive to do and didn't take but a few hours. You should do yours!!!

Love this Mandy! Two years ago, after moving into our home, we were visited by crawling critters in our pantry. I had the darnedest time trying to figure where they came from and needed to come up with a way to protect our pantry contents in the meantime. It took some doing, and cost a bit, but I bought all kinds of plastic stackables and even shelf organizers and went to town organizing my pantry. We solved the critter problem, but now people always comment on my incredible organization of my pantry. Little do they know the REAL reason it ended up that way! I used my P-Touch Label Maker to label all the containers, I LOVE the cute labels you have created though! With little ones it teaches word recognition and organization. That is STILL a challenge in our pantry, even with teenagers! Great project - TFS!
