Sharon I still store all my flat metal dies in CD cases with a magnet sheet adhered inside. You must buy the older thicker CD cases and simply remove the black insert. I have found them at Staples in…Continue

I have a filing cabinet near my desk which has 8 X 11 inch cardstock in the bottom drawer.  I keep all of my GKD cardstock in the packages it came in, like Ziploc.  It is easy for me to pull out what I need and add scraps to it when finished.  My top drawer doesn't hold much as it will not open when is too full.

The filing cabinet is a great idea! I've got my GKD cardstock in a cube with sections in it. That takes up a lot of space, though. Not really happy with it.

PS I have a filing cabinet for my 8x11 cardstock  the file is right next to my desk and I just pull open a drawer and have all Gina's Cardstock in it.  In the top drawer I have all the rest of my 8x11 and things such as stencils, reference materials etc.

I definitely follow Jenn McGuires' organizing.  All of my dies and stamps are in pouches from Amazon and stored in refrigerator plastic containers.  Go Jennifer McGuires' website, she has videos for storing everything imaginable.  I have found her system works the best for me.

I try to keep my paper in the 12 x 12 plastic string-tie envelopes called "Memory Keeper" by Paper Studio. It seems to be a reasonably efficient way for me to keep unused paper as well as some finished project pieces. I try to keep the bulletin board in our adult Sunday School classroom decorated (throughout the week / year it gets used by a large variety of different groups of varying ages, so I need to keep it seasonally current as well as age appropriate to everyone), so these plastic envelopes hold unused paper as well as calendar pages that I use for photo interest, finished pieces of lettering, bordering, traced graphics, etc. The ones with unused paper are not necessarily sorted in any special way although I do try to keep the color groups together.

I thought I would share what I have been working on today.  I bought the assorted cardstock packs that went with each kit, over the last several years.  I never mixed the sets up or sorted them apart.  Today, I sorted the colors so that each color was together no matter which kit they were originally a part of.  I hope this makes life easier when finding specific colors and putting the scraps back away.  How do you all store your cardstock?

I used to peruse this group a lot.  Maybe we need to find ways to help each other and begin posting those ways.

Oh, I don't either!!!

I do not want this group to disappear when the "housekeeping" is done in a few days.

Thanks for the heads up on the 3 ring binders, I just happened to have 3 very nice ones left over since I retired 6 years ago, it helped a lot. Thank you Also I have lots of CD cases that I am going to use for dies. Have some in a plastic case with magnetic sheets, but not enough room. I was always afraid the ones not in the case would become bent, going to go try this right now.
