Label Love


These crazy, unorganized, messy, embarrassing baskets full of "stuff"-mostly crafts- finally got on my last nerve y'all! I couldn't take it anymore so....





I went out to Big Lots and bought a ton of these organizational babies....love me some plastic containers!!! I seriously had an adrenaline rush when buying so many at once! I knew it was worth every bit of my personal moola!






What would go perfect with them?!?!?....LABELS!!! Not just your ordinary ole' boring labels, but cute and colorful Lettering Delights inspired labels for all my stuff...and I mean ALL (there's actually more than what's shown below) !! Okay, I'm really showing the world right now what a dork I am......



I laminated, cut out, and glued the sweet labels on the containers. Once my kiddos left for the day, I had a sorting party on my classroom floor!





OMG!! It's a dream come true!! Can I get a woot woot??!!!




They look so happy in my cabinet!!! Sorry for the bad pic...it was dark!!!




Want the labels for your stuff?!?! Just click on the picture to download them!!


Hope everyone is having an awesome week so far....only 3 more Tuesdays for me before summer....woooohoooo!!! Love every minute of what I do, but I can't wait to spend the summer with my sweet son!!!

I purchased 20 bins that look identical to yours at Dollar General earlier tonight! :) I'm in desperate need of some major organization! I need summer to hurry up and get here so I can clean!!! Also, I'm jealous of your color... I can only print in black and white right now. I'm actually planning on using my for book boxes for the kiddos.
Great job on organizing AND looking super cute at the same time!

Love, love, love. I'm addicted to the clear drawers that come in sets of 3. You can never have too many organizational baskets/boxes really!
I will totally be using the labels for those! Thanks!!

I totally printed your labels on Tuesday and laminated them, bought bins on Wednesday, and today I organized! I was wondering about the font because I need a couple of more labels and would like them all to match. :) Thank you!!
**Oh and my other teacher friend loved them (who isn't big on computers) and asked me to print them for her too!!

Anna Brantley said...

WOW! I'm blown away by all of your super sweet comments!!! I'm so glad everyone likes the labels...YAY!!

Mrs.Capps said...

HI ANNA! I too LOVE your labels! I have a probably silly question for you! I also needed to take out a few and add a few. I have lots of LD fonts & alphabets so I was trying to make my own...BUT what do you use for all of your cute text box borders?? I can't seem to make those as cute!!!?? Thanks for any help that you can provide! eden_capps@scps.k12.fl.us

Also, do you just keep dragging the images of each letter into your document to form the words, one at a time? OR is there a faster way to do this??? Thanks :)

Kristin Young said...

Wooooooot WOOOOOOOT!!!! I LOVE it!! The color and fun font are so primary and will fit with the bright colors in my room. Is there a way to have this editable {??} so I can add even more of my words??? :)

Trisha said...

Just found your blog as well. I LOVE the labels, I printed them out and will be going to school tomorrow to ORGANIZE! You inspired me as well.

Katie said...

Hi, I just downloaded your labels! Thanks so much for sharing!! I am an art teacher and a supply organization freak! I have some labels I made with a very similar font that I cut out of one of my catalogs and these will go great with them. I'm sure I will need to make some more though. What is the font called on Lettering Delights?

I'm from GA too! Your y'all caught my eye so I had to look up your location! I student taught in your town :)

Anna Brantley said...

Hey Katie!!! YAY! I'm so happy you like the labels...the font is called Giddy Gingerbread...I LOVE it!!!
That is so cool that you did your student teaching in Watkinsville!! Which school??

Anna Brantley said...

BTW- Just wanted to make sure you know that I have another post with more labels!! I think it's called "More Label Love"!

Please share them with the teachers at your school!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these labels also....I have been trying to find some that are middle school friendly but also my creative touch and these are perfect. I was wondering if you could give me the template because I am needing some ones for like calculators, rulers, dice, etc. Let me know! YOU ROCK!

Ms. McConaughey said...

I would also LOVE a copy of the Word Doc to add some more labels - I'd also like to use it in my playroom at home.
I so hope you find this and are happy to forward it on!
Thank you!

Can these labels be printed on Avery labels ?Chris

Roxsana said...

Hello Anna,

This is such a great idea and I have the font but wondered how to go about creating the border you had
- I am creating labels for arts and crafts for school.

Thank you in advance
