Scrapbooking Storage Ideas For The Everyday Person

Sep 13, 2008
If you are a scrapbooker, then you know exactly what I mean when I say that if you dont control your scrapbooking supplies, then they control you! This is what typically happens when you get into scrapbooking and dont really pay attention to the mess that is accumilating. And whos to blame you. When it comes to scrapbooking, there are so many different pieces, clippings, and tools to take care of. So, lucky enough, I have been able to find some helpful tips in scrapbooking storage and tips on making an effective scrapbooking storage system.

There are plenty of reasons for proper scrapbooking storage, and my personal reason is time saving and saving myself from frustration. Nothing makes me madder then trying to find that one piece, or my special cutter, and having to dig through piles of other stuff to get to it. I like to use clear plastic bins that are clearly labeled, so that when the time comes that I do need something, I can find it. Another advantage of creating a scrapbook storage system is to save your supplies from getting damaged. You of course have natural disasters like certain pictures getting sun damaged, but then you also have every day disasters, such as kids or dogs. I know our little dog has cost us quite a bit when things get left out. She love to chew up just about anything that gets left out. By keeping everything in plastic bins, she really cant get into them.

You might also want to think about keeping our your supplies together. That way you dont have to go chasing parts or tools all around the house when it comes time to start, or continue, working on a project. I put my supplies in those plastic bins I mentioned ealier, but I was also able to put the little wheels underneath, so my scrapbooking station is mobile! Just a thought.

So, all in all, here is a recap of some basic scrapbooking storage tips. I would use some sort of clear plastic storage, whether its plastic bins or ziploc baggys. This will allow you to identify pretty quickly whats in each storage device. Secondly, make sure you keep your storage out of harms way. If you got kids, place it in hard to reach areas. This will help them from digging through your so neatly organized scrapbooking supplies. Kids tend to have a way of doing that. Also, my personal favorite, if you can pull it off put wheels on the bottom of your storage system. This will make it mobile incase you need to move to another room in a hurry. I know I dont have enough space in my home to dedicate just one room to crafts, so where I work on my scrapbooking changes from day to day.
