Organizing Scrapbook Supplies

Scrapbooking is a fabulous way to be able to look back at your fond memories of family vacations and occasions. However, all those supplies have got to stay organized! This is a guide to organizing scrapbook supplies.

I save everything. Tiny pieces of scrapbooking papers, cut outs, and anything else I can get my hands on. I have found a great solution to keep tiny pieces of papers and stickers organized. I saved a lot of old advertisement CD covers (plastic boxes) from internet companies, etc. thinking one day I would find a use for them.

I remove the advertisements from inside. I then put scrapbooking letters, numbers, etc. in them. Then I use my DYMO labels to label what's inside. I put it on the edge of the box so I can identify what I need quickly.

The best part of this is, they stack up neatly and require very little space.
I have about 30 or 40 now and you wouldn't believe how little space is used!

You can also just purchase new ones from Wal-Mart or almost any store that sells music.

You can probably find the CD cases for free or very cheap at yard sales or on Craigslist or Freecycle, as some people are getting rid of their CDs, or have stored them in albums or other systems.

Needing more storage for scrapbooking paper and supplies? After drooling over the pretty scrapbooking rooms some people shared on the internet, I looked for a solution for housing all of my craft, scrapbooking and sewing supplies. I came across a $23.00 plastic shelving unit at the department store (like the kind people use in their garage or for food storage in a pantry.)

It worked perfect. The only tool I required to put it together was a rubber mallet. The shelves even had room for my sewing machine on the bottom shelf. Although, not as fancy as built-ins, wooden bookcases or custom purchased products; it is very nice and clean, functional, and gives me lots of storage.


I am still in the process of covering the cardboard box paper holders with old calendars, fabric etc.

That's a great idea! I don't scrapbook, but I do other crafts, and this sounds like a wonderful way to increase storage space.

I believe in recycling everything, To organize all my flowers for my scrapbooking, I use my cat's Pounce cat treat bottles and put each color of flower in their own bottle. I have a nice shelf unit I got free from a neighbor that they fit in just right.

A couple of years ago, I came across an old dishwasher basket. Since then, I have probably added a half dozen to my scrapbook area for all types of supplies.

Small pizza boxes are a great way to store scrapbooking paper (clean ones can be purchased and sometimes you can get them for free by asking for a couple when you go in to pick up your pizza order!).

I know a lot of people who do scrapbooks. I love to make them, but have a limited budget, so I've come of with some ways to make my money go further. Instead of buying expensive sticker binders, I use the envelopes that come with my credit card offers.
