Scrapbooking is one of those hobbies that comes with so much stuff. You have paper, adhesives, embellishments, as well as a gazillion other things.
I realized the other night that I needed a better organization system for my supplies. They were getting damaged and ruined the way they were. So, time to start organizing!
Now, I wish I had something like this, but that's not going to happen until we get a bigger house.
After getting my huge 3 lb. haul of paper at Micheals the other day, I had a ton of scraps that I needed to have organized. Since they were all different sizes, I figured that ziploc bags would be the best way to go. I organized them into colors and then put them all in a different bag. That way, I can easily find a color that coordinates with the layout I'm doing.
I also have a ton of stickers and 3D embellishments that need to be stored, so I figured the binder method might be the best way to streamline those. I'm not completely happy with this organization system, so I'm sure it will be tweaked a few more times, but it's better than what I had.
I took a binder and filled it with page protectors. Then, I put the stickers into the page protector, two to a page. If I put anymore, they fall to the bottom and it makes it hard to see.
I tried to organize them in categories as best as possible. I think I'm going to add some dividers so that I can easily flip to the category I'm looking for.
I just kind of shoved all my letter stickers into one page protector. I'm not really sure how I'm going to organize them yet.
And then I have the huge pages that don't fit into the binder. What to do with them?
How do you organize your scrapbook items? I need ideas.
