Weekly Wrap Up + Free Designer Organizer Label Downloads!

Today may be the first day of February, but it’s still part of the last week of January, so I wanted to end this week with a little gift from the D*S team: custom organizing labels! I asked four of my favorite illustrators, Lisa CongdonYelena Bryksenkova, Caitlin Keegan and Ashley G to create custom labels that D*S readers could easily download, print on blank sticker paper and use however you need! Staying organized and keeping cleaning-related New Year’s Resolutions can be enough of a challenge, so it never hurts to have something cute to keep you motivated. Each of these talented women has created a page of labels on which you can write dates, names and other information and place on anything you need to organize: files, boxes, bins, papers, etc. I’m so excited to use these on my inspiration image folders; they could definitely use a little help in the organization department. Thanks so much to Lisa, Yelena, Caitlin and Ashley for contributing these designs. I hope you enjoy them! I’m signing off for the weekend. I hope you all enjoy the big game, and we’ll see you on Monday! xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:

    1. Grace Bonney says:

  26. Lisa says:

    Sabine: I did, as well. None of the links I clicked triggered the automatic download — it just opened the image in another window (but I couldn’t drag it to my desktop).

  27. juliec says:

    Darling! Thank you, girls!

  28. kv barn says:

  32. love them – especially the one from caitlin keegan – thank you so much for sharing!

  33. These are so awesome! Perfect for dolling up my pantry – thank you!

  34. Cindy Woods says:

    Thanks so much; these are gorgeous! But when I click on the links, they show up as a jpeg image, not downloads. Is there something I’m missing? thanks!

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      if they show up as jpegs it’s probably just a browser quirk. just right click and hit “save” or “download” or try dragging them to your desktop :)


  35. Dilma de Almeida says:

    Oi, meu nome é Dilma, sou brasileira, não falo e nem escrevo em ingles. mas mesmo assim curto muito o desing sponge.

  36. lovely! thank you for the download patterns and frames.
    however the file for Lisa Congdon’s label that i like
    has an error and i could not download it. would you please double check with the file!!!!!
    love love love your blog and all the insights and inspirations. merci merci.

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      the file is uploaded correctly and working for most people- can you tell me what browser adn version you’re using so i can try to figure it out for you?


  37. I considered buying the blank sticker paper from Staples, but was able to save the $14 by using a box of 2″ x 4″ mailing labels that have been sitting idly in a filing cabinet. Just resized the images to fit. They turned out fabulously, even with the yellow tint left by my less-than-fabulous printer.
    Thanks D*S!

  38. Jub says:

    Same problem than the others with Lisa’s page. My browser (Firefox) tells that the image can’t apear because it has errors. Every other image worked well.

    I tried with internet explorer and it did work.

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      which version of firefox are you using?


  39. Lauren says:

    I finally sat down and printed these- they worked out wonderfully. I used 3M’s full sheet labels. I also saved them to my desktop and opened them in preview, which helped in printing them at a larger size. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to use them.

  40. Zosia says:

    Thank you so very much for these fantastic labels. Also thank you for your kindness and generosity in letting us have these.
