      How does every organize their papers??

      By colour, by collection, by brand

      And how do store them?

        I have 4 sets of 12×12 plastic draws I keep my paper in, each one has 6 draws. I have one for my Blue Fern papers and one for my Maja papers. I try to sort them by collection but I don’t have enough draws for all the collections.

        Then in the other two I have all the rest of my papers sorted by brand.

        This set up takes up ALOT of space so I need to begin to condense it.

          I store cs by color on shelves, other pp by theme or brand, Swirly kits stay together in the plastic bag they came in until majority is used (stored in filing cabinet).

            My cs is sorted by color and I have it in the organizational cubes from Michaels. My pp is sorted by manufacturer, except for my Christmas paper. I keep all the paper that will fit in my storage tower. I have any paper left over from kits in an iris tote.

              All of my paper sits upright in Cropper Hopper holders.
              The cardstock is more or less organized by color (I have a hard time deciding ?pink or purple?, kwim?).
              As far as the patterned paper goes, I’m totally anal. It’s sorted alphabetically by Manufacturer, Collection, Title. When I remember, I jot down the month and year on the title strips of kit papers. They all go into the general population as soon as the next kit arrives and this one is put away.

              A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                My paper is mostly divided by manufacturer. I do have a few themes I keep separate: Christmas, beachy, ancestral, and baby. It’s all in the the scrapbox. There are a handful of Prima collections that I have a lot of the flowers and embellishments for, especially the newer ones, and those go in Iris 12X12 containers on a designated shelf. All cardstock is separated by color.

                  I need to go through my paper and organize one container, but mostly, it sounds like I have mine organized like Jan does.

                    My PP’s are stored by manufacturer and then by collection, in plastic bags in several ‘Really Useful Boxes’ which stack on top of each other on my shelves. I have limited space so condensing everything is a must! My cardstock I must admit is separate but not in colour order and a lot of it is in mixed colour pads.
