I recently had a question from a customer regarding organization of Stampin' Up! paper and ink...
I am trying to order paper and ink and get all the colors organized. How do you keep it all in order?
Now for your question on organization....whew!
Now for paper...
wish I could say that I had one of those fancy-schmancy racks or
cubbies for my paper, but I don't.
I have the plastic "rubber
maid" drawers (12 x 12) that you can stack and come in sets of three. Now,
it's not real pretty, but it keeps it organized.
I have a drawer dedicated for:
each color collection
- one for specialty papers like glossy card stock
- two for the neutrals since I have more of that than
Then, I have a drawer for each color collection for my
scraps. I pull from those drawers all the time! These pieces are great
for punching or die cutting with my Big Shot.
I have a small cart with wheels with large hanging files for my
current designer paper. I love it. I keep it right beneath my work
table and can pull from it easily.
The retired or discontinued paper is
in another set of those rubber maid drawers. Since I have to work with and demonstrate the
current stuff, I rarely have packs of anything left over but I do keep
pieces that are big enough for banner pieces, etc.
I used to hoard my
supplies...now I try to use it up!
I keep a
smaller set of drawers on my work table. One drawer has Whisper White
and Very Vanilla scraps for stamping. The other two drawers have my
Stampin' Up! Envelopes.
I hope that gives you
some idea of what works for me.
And, honestly, it's usually a mess in
this work room!
But, I'll clean it up and start over when it gets too
I know where everything is...most of the time...and it works
