Last week I shared how I store my ink pads, this week it’s all about how I store my Stampin’ Up! Designer Paper.  This is something I have struggled with for years and years, trying many different systems.  But I finally found a system that I am in love with.  It works!  This system is making me feel so organized and I know I will use my papers more, as well as all the little scraps!  I found these 12″ x 12″ paper files on Amazon and purchased enough to have one for each pack of Designer Series Paper.

How I Store My Stampin’ Up! Designer Paper

Inside of each file I also have a gallon size freezer ziplock bag.  “Freezer bag” is important because it is heavier and holds its shape better.  Inside the freezer bag are all the partial pieces and scraps.  So when I am using the paper, I first look in the bag to see if there is what I need, and then, if not, I can cut a 12″ x 12″ piece.  Boy, do I ever feel organized!!  (CLICK HERE to see the files I found on Amazon)

Cute Cards With Animal Expedition DSP

I don’t want this blog post to be too boring, just looking at paper storage, so here are a couple of cards I made using the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  I will share these another time with complete details, but wanted to just give you a sneak peak at this adorable paper and Animal Outing stamp set….stay tuned for details!

How I Remember The Colors

Another thing I do, is keep the cardboard backing that comes with the paper in the file.  But since the printing is so tiny, I just grab a sharpie marker and write all the colors that are in the paper.  Now when I go to use this paper, I have it all super handy and I know exactly what colors coordinate.

DSP Color Chart

Have you printed out the Designer Series Coordinating Color Chart that I share a while back?  This is also a great thing to keep handy when stamping.  You can always check to see what colors are in all of the different papers!  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
