Paper, Paper, Paper

I have always loved making paper crafts! So several years ago, 
I decided it was time I did some organizing of my paper and supplies. 
Here is what works for me!

Card Stock Filing System
I bought organizing folders and made a folder for each color.  I stayed with the basic colors and categorized all colors together. Example: Orange: Orange, Peach, Flesh color, etc would all be grouped in one.  It is also great when there is a sale on paper you can easily look at your colors and see which one you are low on.

Scrapbook Paper Filing System
I bought sheet protectors and put the paper inside a 3 ring binder. It is easy to store on a shelf.  It is so easy to quickly look the book and see what paper I have for a project.  I have not gotten there yet, but you could also put them in themes or colors and put tabs on the side to be more organized.

Die-cuts, stickers and Paper Embellishments Filing System
This is the same concept as organizing card stock.  I made categories for my die-cuts, stickers and paper embellishments.  In the example this is my numbers and letters folder.  I have several different categories including holidays, baby, frames, sports etc.

Scrap Paper Filing System
I am one of those crazy ladies who tries to use all of her scraps.  I use the same system as the card stock.  I do have a folder at the back which is  TO FILE!!!  Sometimes I am really good at organizing as I go and sometimes it just takes me a while to put my scraps in order but I am trying!!!!  I put pattern paper and card stock in the same color.  It just works for me!!!!

What organizing system works for you?

  1. I am going to be replacing my current "stuff the scraps into a magazine box" with the hanging file folders. Much more practical.

    1. You will love it!! I use so many more scraps because I can see what I have!

  2. Wow! That is impressive. I love how you were able to get everything organized and easy to still look through and see. I am sure it makes it easier to create beautiful things when you have everything organized.

  3. Awesome! Did you want to come organized all my scrapbook stuff now? This has been one of my "To Do's" for years but always felt overwhelming because I wasn't sure what to do. Thanks for all the ideas!

  4. I love how organized you are! I'm visiting today from Thursday's Favorite Things, and I'm your latest follower.

  5. They can be recycled. Industry does that all the time. Some companies got pressured because they were advertising a certain percentage of recycled content, but their number was based on their own plant waste in production. That is why you now see the content labelled as "post consumer."
