    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Ramona asks: "How do you store your paper scraps?"
    A: (Thank you for knowing that I cannot throw paper scraps away!) I use side-loading DVD binder pages that have 2 pockets each - each pocket is about 5.5" wide and 7" deep, which is perfect for anything the size of a card base or smaller. They're easy to pull out, and they're organized with one pocket for each color family. I keep them in hanging file folders right along with my cardstock.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Ginny has a tip for assembling the Fishing Vest card: "Helpful hint: put the glue at the top of the pocket then add the little piece so you have something to hold onto (bottom of the pocket) when assembling. "
