Tidy Friday: Paper Organization

Hi, Lakeside Stampers!

As promised here is another Tidy Friday Organization Tip for Storing your Card Stock and Designer Series Paper. As I have mentioned in the past I’m a visual person, so, for me this system works. I know some demonstrators store their paper filed away in matching hanging file folders. You need to decide which method works for you. I like standing in front of the card stock while I’m deciding what colors to use.  Another reason I like this system is I can see at a glance what colors I am low on and need to order.

 

Here’s how I have my Card Stock stored.

Now, my stamping room is not big by any stretch. These cabinets are 18″ deep x 26″ wide and 26″ high. On top I have paper sorters for my 8-1/2″ x 11″ Card Stock. I have the Card Stock organized in rainbow colors. Again, that works for me. If organizing your card stock by collection is better for you than you can also do it that way.

 I have my neutrals grouped together as shown:

For my 12″ x 12″ Card Stock & Designer Series Paper I also have them in 14″ x 14″ paper sorters.

I have the Designer Series Paper in Alphabetical Order. I label each pack with it’s name, the year of the catalog and colors in that pack. Nothing fancy. it takes time initially, but, it’s easier than looking colors up in the Idea Book & Catalog when I’m in the middle of looking for a certain color.

I hope this is inspires you to, “Get Organized!”  It really doesn’t matter what system you use, but, that you have some kind of system in place, so, you have more time for your masterpieces.

 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
Stampin’ Hugs,
