September MFT Creative Chat!



It's time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You'll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT forum.  This month, we were asked the following questions:  

How do you store and organize your card stock?   
How do you store your scrap card stock? 

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team!
I have two different methods of storing my cardstock, depending upon the brand.  For the cardstock I reach for most often, I use a fabulous paper holder that I purchased from my SU! Upline back when I was a demo.  This is a great paper tower as the shelves are removable, so you can customize the size of the towers.

You can see through the clear shelves that my paper tower is against a wall of stamps.  These are stamps that I have had forever, and never ever even touch.  If I had to get to them, my paper tower is on wheels so I can just wheel it out of the way.


Here is a closeup of some of the shelves.  As you can (hopefully) see, I keep the full sheets on the bottom and then just put any scraps right on top.  That way, when I need a piece of cardstock, I can search through the scraps first.  I used to have the shelves labeled with the names of the cardstock, but as I kept getting more, it was frustrating to keep moving the labels.  I keep my colors in ROYGBIV order, so instead of labeling the shelves, I created a little cardstock color keeper for each brand of cardstock that I have.


I keep my SU! cardstock in a file cabinet, and each color has it's own folder.  I keep full sheets, as well as scraps, in each folder.


Here is the cardstock ring I created for all my MFT cardstock.  I simply cut out each color using Nestabilities, labeled them with my P Touch, added a hole with my Cropadile and added them to a ring.  This is a great way for me to keep track of what colors I have, as well as an easy way to match my colors to patterned paper.

 

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  I can hardly wait to go visit the other girls on the team and see how they organize!  Isn't it fun to get a glimpse inside other peoples stamp rooms?  LOVE it!!

  18. i am interested in using the same set up for my cardstock, using the acrylic slot tower. I am not quite sure though i understand where you got them from. you say you purchased the from your SU! upline. Is that a store or site or a friend? Excuse me for not knowing especially if its somewhere well known and popular in the wonderful world of scrapbooking/stamping. I am fairly new to the game. Any help would be welcomed and appreciated!
