Welcome to Week #9 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour! Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about Paper Crates, so be sure to check it out.
This week I want to share another way that I store my current Close To My Heart Papers…
Week 9: Paper Storage Pockets
In week #2 I talked about how I store my current Close To My Heart Patterned Papers in the Workspace Wonder Paper Trays for easy access while creating. However, each year Close To My Heart also comes out with a new ‘Core Catalog’ that contains other papers that stay current for much longer. Because I don’t want to invest in a bunch more Paper Trays to accommodate ALL of my current papers, I decided to try some Paper Storage Pockets from Stamp ‘n Storage.
The great thing about the Paper Storage Pockets is that, unlike the Paper Sleeves I talked about in week 3, these sleeves are great for holding both 12″ x 12″ paper and their scraps. Plus, they fit nicely into the Paper Crates that I talked about last week. I basically store all of the Core Book Papers in these Pockets by pattern and group them together behind one hanging folder. If I have sticker sheets, I store them in the actual hanging file. This way I can use what I need at any time, throughout the year with ease.
Here are a few other reasons to invest in Paper Storage Pockets:
- Each has a tab for easy labeling
- Each sleeve can hold up to 15 sheets of Cardstock
- Each sleeve can hold between 15 to 20 sheets of Patterned Paper
- Great for keeping sheets and large scraps together in one place
- Stores easily in a Crate
- Easy to tote to paper crafting events
What are some ways you could use these in your craft area?
