Category Archives: Cardstock Organization

Organization is the Name of the Game!

Well, it’s not really a game unless you’re a bit type-A like me….

With the new catalog — to be released June 1st — and new In Colors on the way, it was time to redo my cardstock organization.IMG_3140 v2

If you’re like me, you save your scraps in case you may just need that small’ish piece for your next project and you don’t want to waste a whole new piece of cardstock.

I save my cardstock scraps in legal-size labeled hanging folders.  I also adhere a piece of that color of cardstock on the label so I can match or compare to what I have in my hand.

However, new this year I have decided to  use FUN punches instead of the plain 1/4″ circle punch from the past…

Wasn’t that exciting!?!?

To recap, I use the following for my cardstock scrap organization….

  • Legal size hanging folders
  • Avery 5167 labels (1 3/4″ x 1/2″)
  • Fun and exciting punch to adhere a piece of the color of cardstock to the label

I will also be adding the designer series paper packs as labels for those scraps once the catalog comes out and I can buy that paper…

Happy organizing!!
