Then I came up with the idea that I should re-organize my 6x6 and 8x8 paper packs.
Well, I have completely finished them :)
Here they are, all pretty in their new homes :)
Doesn't this just make you smile.....well it makes me smile.
I love to organize...yes, its an illness I think.
Here they are all in the storage unit.
This sits in my laundry room, as I kind of ran out of room in my scrap/craft room.
The door on the right takes you into my scrap room.
Don't pay attention to the wall colour...it was a bad choice, lol.
The last 2 shelves hold my girl stamps.
Okay so lets get down to business now shall we.
First thing we have to do is gather up all our paper packs.
Yes, all of them.....
See how I kept them before, no real theme and all the containers were different.
Now seperate them in themes...if that is how you like to organize.
Here is how I am keeping mine :
Pastels - light coloured papers
Seasonal - Christmas and Halloween
Vintage - Browns, blacks, deep colours
Whimsical - Fun, bright colours
Purge...nope, never, lol.
Yes I have 3 of the same paper packs, lol. I know I bought one for me, one for a gift for a friend, and the other....ummmm, I guess I really liked it, teehee.
I like to keep my scraps together with the paper packs.
Because I use this paper for mostly cards, I like to keep all the little pieces.
The tiny pieces work great for paper piecing the "Cute Girl Stamps" dresses and such.
So what I do is use leftover envelopes and attach them to the inside of the back cover to store all those tiny pieces.
I have even used envelopes that your bills come in, I just cut them down to size.
When a paper pack is totally done, but I have a few tiny pieces left, I will recycle them.
The last thing is to put them all into their happy new homes and enjoy the prettiness.
Does it sound like I got to attached to this process, lol.
And if this wasn't enough for you....I made a video :)
I know many don't like to, or have the time to watch a video, but I know so many of you request it....so here it is :)
I hope you all have had a very creative Sunday :)
Holy crapola, I just when to check my post and on the bottom of my video, I noticed it said it is my 200th video, wow.
