Holy Scrap!!!

Take a look at this!!!

Now, this is what I call one pile of scrap!!!!

I had originally stored them in Sterlite containers by SU! color family. I took them all out and didn't realize I've collected this much! IT'S INSANE!!! Lots of odd shapes and in at least 60 different colors! I can't believe I stored all of these all this time! I should have charged them mortgage!!!

So what I did is just kept a few (like 4 strips at the most) of each color and put each color in page protectors. Then I put all the like shades in one hanging folder....like all reds in one, yellows in another. Get the idea? I'm not sure if I'll keep them there though. It's still a work in progress. I have to just wait and see how I like that system.

I'll keep you all posted. Meanwhile, when you get a chance, check me out on, eBay! Since I'm cleaning out my Art Room, there may be something there you like..... Hope to see you there!

Happy Scrapping!

Too funny...I was just doing the same thing....I haven't found a good way to store the scraps...but am really trying to be vigilante in using them before pulling out another sheet...LOL

It seems that the new year brings the orginization instinct out in everyone! LOL! I pared down my pile of scraps a few months ago by giving them away to friends who wanted them and challenged them to make cards out of them. I keep cs scraps in a CM organizer and my pp scraps sorted by color in a paper holder. I'll try to get pics up on my blog soon.

I know what you mean! I hate to throw out scraps, but I almost never check there first - I always pull out a new sheet of cardstock, so my scrap folders just keep growing! If someone has a solution, I'd love to hear it!
