Before I jump into today’s blog post, I am happy to offer a reminder that Stampin’ Up!’s FREE SHIPPING period starts TODAY! Woo hoo! Between now and Friday, April 10, there is no charge for shipping on all Stampin’ Up! orders – does it get any better than that?!? More information at the end of this post.
I’ve received a lot of questions from customers and blog readers who want to know how I organize my “stuff” in the Fungeon, and I’m happy to share my methods with you. Over the last couple of weeks, I shared my card stock storage – you can see those posts here:
Today, I’m happy to share with you how I store my Designer Series Paper. I LOVE all of my Designer Series Paper, so it’s very important for me to keep it organized and well-preserved. I keep all my Designer Series Paper in large, plastic crates – I have three of these creates (one for Annual Catalog DSP, one for mini-catalog DSP and one for Background Designer Series Paper Stacks/other 12″ x 12″ papers). I store my opened packs of Designer Series Paper in pocket folders I picked up at a local craft store – they have snaps to accommodate the amount of paper in each folder. I label each folder with the name of the Designer Series Paper pack.
Here’s how my Sweet Dreams folder looks when I pull it from the crate:
- Thick Chipboard. As I have purchased Specialty Designer Series Papers over the years, I’ve kept all the thick chipboard that accompanies some of them. I keep one piece of that chipboard in the back of each folder to make sure the papers stay firm and unbent.
- Unopened Pack of Designer Series Paper. If I have an unopened pack of the Designer Series Paper, I will store it next (back-to-front). It adds to the firmness of the folder.
- Full, Opened Pages. Any full pieces of Designer Series Paper are stored next.
- Pocket of Scraps. When I open the first pack of Designer Series Paper, I carefully cut the top off and pull the pages out. I keep the white cardboard in the plastic wrapping to store my scraps. Conveniently kept in the front of each folder, I always have a quick glance at what scraps I have on-hand.
I also love my Designer Series Paper Stacks. I keep them carefully tucked away in Large Wood Mount Stamp Cases – they fit perfectly. Here’s an unopened pack of All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack, an opened pack and some scraps:
They store nicely on a shelf with the other Designer Series Paper Stack:
I hope you find these tips for storing Designer Series Papers helpful. I’ve been using this system for storing my Designer Series Papers for quite some time, and I’m really happy with it. Everyone has different needs and different ways for storing their papers, but this way works wonderfully for me.
Thanks for stopping by today!
