My girlfriend laughs at me, but I just recently organized my SU scraps... I have two colours per hanging folder in a milk crate style file holder. I have the names of the colour on the tab as well as small circles of the colour so I can look for a specific colour or look at all of one colour. The only thing I would change would be to put them in colour order, not in colour families.

I find I use so much more scrap this way instead of always cutting into a new piece

I keep the larger pieces for layering. The smaller ones, I've taken to "punching" them to almost nothing. I then file the punches in "thread" containers. I have a nice collection to go too when I need something extra on a card or page. I also put some into little pill bags to give away. My favorite is the word slot punch.

Last evening I started creating a book using the word slot punch for color ideas. I punched 5 of each of the 48 SU colors. I then wrote the correct name in a tablet and mono the punch cardstock next to it. Different color coordinations on each page with room for notes. It will be my new "go to book" when I'm feeling color challenged. I got this idea from a lady at SCS who is doing them for their color challenges.

Have a great day and thanks for sharing!

I put my leftover papers in sheet protectors that I slip in behind the untouched paper. My paper lives in hanging file folders. That way when I just need a little piece, it is right there.


Awesome! Theres never enough room is there! :.)



i love your stamp room. mine is still a work in progress. i tell my boyfriend if i had a tv in there (for background) i'd never leave it.

i recently took all my scraps and put together two swatch books. one is like a paint sample book, and the other is a flip book in the SU 5x5 journal. i am also planning to punch out 3/4" squares and group them in colors that work well for cards. then i also have the pre-punched assortment made from smaller scraps. the other leftovers-- i want to make cards with multicolor backgrounds. i can't bear to get rid of scraps. it's bad.
