Tip for Tuesday

I was talking to my best friend today and gave her my newest organization tip and thought I would share it with the world! Yes I know the whole world doesn't read my blog but I can dream can't I? So here it is......

For all scrapbookers out there that have little bits of cardstock saved for just that right project because you can't bear to part with any little bit of that expensive stuff, you know who you are...Here is what I do to keep it under control.

Joann's has these Protect-n-Store clear 12x12 containers. I have had a couple for years now and have been just throwing paper in willy nilly until now.

I finally got tired of ruffling through the paper to find that perfect piece of brown cardstock (and yes there is such a thing and you know it)so I bought 1 gallon zip lock bags at the dollar store and I put families of colors in each bag. GENIOUS!!!!

Now I open up the container, go to the brown, or some other delightful color bag and grab whatever size or shape there-of piece I need for my project and go!

Since purchasing my Silhouette SD I have started using more and more little teeny tiny pieces of paper so this has been a life saver of time!

Just doing my bit for crafters everywhere. The ones who read my blog. If there are any that read my blog. "Hello? tap, tap this thing on?"


  1. Its on! We're here!

    I don't have paper to keep organized, but I've recently discovered those green velcro strips that come around heads of lettuce work great around bundles of cloth to help keep them organized. :-)

  2. I do something similar, Jane. I use 8.5x11 sheet protectors and sort my scraps by color.
