Default How do you store cardstock?

I've been storing mine in file folders by color family. is there a better way? I've thought about cubbies for each color but don't know where I can find anything like that. I'd like to have something custom built for my stamping room and the cabinet would include 50 or so cubbies so that the cardstock could be easily accessible.

What does everyone else do?

I have 2 Rubbermaid Fold-n-Roll Cart Systems. I purchased them at Sam's for $26. I can have them in my stamping room or sometimes I'm working in the dining room so I just roll them in there. I love them!

omg - that's the exact thing that I have. I guess I'm doing alright then.

Still want to build that dream cabinet. I have it all laid out just need to get a handy man to come over and make it for me. I'm handy with a stamp pad, but not a hammer and nail.

I use literature sorters. I have two twelve sectioned units. If you go to staples.com or one of the other office supply places and search on " Literature Sorters" you should see several examples. I got mine at either Sam's Club or Costoc.. can't remember which one.

Office Max has the literature sorters on sale this week. I can't remember how much though.

KRAMOMMA here really, I'm on my son's computer and he's KRABEARKUB.


Anyway we have our cardstock in filing cabinets hanging, each color gets it's own file section and they are kept in the 4 color family order! they are in two drawers, it's the smaller file cabinet so takes little space.

works great for us, we have used this system for several years now.

I have a fold and roll to and I just love it! Not only do I put my full sheets of cardstock in it, I have a file for scraps as well. That way when I need a blue, red, yellow, etc. scrap piece I just pull out that folder.

I store my cardstock in 3 inch binders. I put a color in a sleeve protector with its scraps and then group like colors together. This makes it really easy to see and to match colors when you aren't sure what you might want.

I used to have mine stored in file boxes. I recently switched to vertical plastic magazine files for my 8.5x11 and Cropper Hopper has similar ones for 12 x12. OMG! What a difference in space! All my cardstock and 12x12 is now stored in such a smaller space! I have at least one full pack of all the SU colors plus specialty colors. I don't buy 12x12 in mass quantities but there's a bunch of that as well and several kits.. Here's the pictures...

I have two of the 8-drawer Iris plastic stoage things...each drawer holds I think 6 colors....each color - with it's scraps - is in a 9x12 zip bag......qould have bought 10x13's in retrospect.

This allows me to grab a color to take with me to a WS easily.

I have a question, this looks like the ideal way to store papers and I love it. Only problem I have is I use 12x12 papers. My SIL and I carried around the 12x12 and tested every file folder storage system we could find in walmart and target and the papers just don't fit, they hang out over the top! Can you tell me if the 12x12's fit in this particular one??? Thanks!! Jenn

The 12x12's will fit but will hang out the top a little so you won't be able to put the lid on.

I went to QVC online and found 12 x 12 paper trays that stack. They are clear and I love mine. The local scrapbook store was out of them when I went looking for them but they said they were on order. But their price was way too high. QVC was cheaper even with shipping and handling! I was surprised!

I only have the expandable file folders for my 12x12 cardstock and specialty paper. My 8 1/2 x 11 ... I have a plastic file crate with a separate folder for each color - labeled. I plan to put a sample of the color on the label at some point in the future. Only problem with this - is it weighs a ton when I try to move it...Nice thing is - I can put it in my car if I go to a workshop or something where someone might want to see a sample color.

Wink storing cardstock,and paper

HI,I use pizza boxes,for 12x12 I use 14, It works great if you can not afford ,or are not ready for the big storage boxes, You can write on the out side the colors, or by the theym of your paper,as Christmas,Baby,Baseball ect.You can lay them flat on a shelf,or standing on end,

I bought those wire cubes at target. Then I used cable ties to add extra pieces as shelves for my paper. I am actually considering modifying this system into a hanging folder system and using the cube as an open box to hang my paper in the folders because I think I can make better use of my space this way. Anyway, I do it by color family as I find this is the easiest way to find the colors I am looking for.

I have the Target cubes with the zip ties for shelves. I am gradually moving away from that (still use them for storage and magazines, binders, etc>). I am going toward the vertical system with the Cropper Hopper for 12x12 and for my SU 8.5x11 papers, I purchased 5 cardboard vertical folder holders from IKEA for $2. They work just great. I need a few more of the Cropper Hopper ones.

I store my paper in white magazine holders that the local library was throwing out. I put all my paper in it and store them on the sides so I can see the colors. They dont bend and are easy to get in and out.

I use the Cropper Hopper paper holder with the dividers. It is now offered in black which looks and feels like the Creative Memories storage systems. I love the slick black look and it saves on space. I have one for each color group and one for neutrals.

I am a literature sorter girl. Love it. I want a bigger one though. The one I have has just 6 slots. Neutrals, Bold Brights, Soft Subtles, Rich Regals, Earth Elements, and the last one I use for specialty papers like shimmery white and glossy. I only store open packs in there, the rest is just piled on a shelf.

I was lucky enough to attend an auction where I purchased 2 heavy duty literature sorters. Each one contains 24 sections. How perfect is that (4?

I have them stacked one on top of the other in an antique wardrobe.

I got my girlfriends old 5 drawer file cabinet that she didn't want anymore, and i am using one of the drawers for my stuff, like storing cardstock. It came with tons of hanging file folders and just this weekend, i sat down and labeled tabs for each color i have. So i am happy!

I do the same with two magazine holders per color family and store my scraps in the large cellophane bags with the color. I store open packs this way and the unopened ones on a shelf. Great access in a small space.
