So how does one go about sorting paper? I’m sure you non scrapbookers are thinking that’s its just paper and has no real need for organization or proper storing, but you my friend are wrong. Scrapbook paper is much more meaningful then just your plain old printer paper. There is patterned paper, cardstock, two sided papers, paper packs from manufactures that match, and even embellishments that match papers! So much to go through, I better get started. I will add at the end this post how I sorted it and a picture of the pretty paper.
The paper has been sorted and ogled well (I have some great paper I need to get some pictures onto). I decided to sort my manufacture like I had been doing in the past, since most of it was already sorted that way. I like to work with coordinating paper, so this works best for me. My card stock is sorted by color and by manufacturer (I have 3 different styles of cardstock).
Here are some of my techniques I used with the picture.
1). These are racks from Cropper Hopper with some of the paper sorted with 12X12 clear envelopes; clear 12X12 page dividers; or just labeled with a sticky note on the side.
*I wish I would have been able to change to the clear racks in order to see the paper better, but I have to use what I have. The paper packs in between the left side of racks are more basic grey paper packs that do not fit on the wire racks. I'll need to find a place for them ot purge more paper. *
2) Wire Wall Mounted racks that I found at The Container Store - 1 holds Basic Grey Paper and the 2nd holds Bazzill Cardstock.
*I love these racks, but they are $60 a piece and even on sale I have a hard time justifying such a purchase anymore*
