NSD Weekend

As National Scrapbooking Day weekend comes to a close, show us what YOU worked on.

Share your favorite project from the weekend; we'd love to see what you worked on.  I had hoped to finish some canvases, but today got away from me.  Please inspire me.....

Today's Activities

The baptism of my cousin's beautiful little girl, Julia, was lovely and now we move on to the First Birthday Party!!!!!  After that, a few errands including consulting with a friend for her kitchen renovation, and then home to clean and create! Maybe I will defer some grocery shopping to Monday...... I may need a nap!!!!!

Today's Tip! - Paper Storage

Scrapbook Paper Storage That Works!


Scrapbook paper storage is a challenge! Ask anyone who scrapbooks and they will agree. There are so many different colors, patterns, type, and sizes to consider.


How many times did you cut a new sheet because you couldn't find the smaller size you needed only to find it the next day? How many times did you buy a new piece of paper only to find you already had that color or pattern? What about the precious time wasted looking for just the right piece?


Well, all of those frustrating moments can be history if you organize your paper and use scrapbook paper storage items. To help you with your scrapbook paper storage, here ares some ideas:
Stackable Paper Trays (8.5"x11: and 12"x12") - Paper trays are a good choice to keep your paper right where you need it.  It makes your paper easy to see and easily accessible!





Expandable Organizer - These are great expandable organizers that can hold up to 500 pieces of 12"x12" paper, has a locking tuck tab and of course in acid free. A perfect choice for small space scrappers or scappers on the move.










Cropper Hopper Paper Holder - I LOVE my Cropper Hopper but don't see them anymore.  It's convenient and sturdy and, on a wheeled base, easily moved.  The unit holds up to 200 pages of 12"x12" papers. Add dividers (found below)to separate colors and patterns.









Cropper Hopper Vertical Value Pack - This is another favorite of mine.  Pages are protected and easily stored.  There are a few different sizes and it's easy to sort by color, theme, or whatever works for you.
















Using scrapbook paper storage can help you get more done in less time by using your time efficiently and for what you love - building great scrapbook pages!


Happy Organizing!!!
