My Favorite Things Creative Chat

It's time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You'll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT forum.  This month, we were asked the following questions:
How do you store and organize your card stock?   
How do you store your scrap card stock? 

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team!
Let me start by confessing that hoarding card stock is NOT one of my issues, so really I don't have major storage ideas for it, however I thought I would share it anyway, just in case it helps someone out there....never know...LOL

I don't buy a lot of 12x12 size card stock, since I make cards most of the time, but I do have some and I have a 12x12, or most likely it's a 13x13 IRIS container.  Here is one of my boxes and I do a few of these boxes.

For my card making I use mainly 8.5" by 11" size card stock, which nowadays my supply comes from the My Favorite Things Boutique.  For these I bought a nice little container from Michael's and here is what it looks like in usage.

It's not much, but it's always on my desk and easy to reach for, so it works for me.  And finally let me share my easy storage method for my card stock scraps.  You might remember my Die-namics storage box?  Well, I use the same kind of box for my scraps.

Well, there you have it.  It's not much as I told you, but this is my little method.  Maybe it helps one of you.  I am so excited to hop and see what the rest of our My Favorite Things Design Team members have to share about their card stock storage.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Those boxes look like they'd keep everything so nice and neat.

Hi Eva! Love the idea of keeping the scraps in the clear storage boxes. And, to have the rest of your cardstock within easy reach is a great idea too. Thanks for sharing!

Inge said...

Simple and clean storage love that! The basket is looking cute:-D

Wendy said...

I am with you, no hoarding! I probably throw away more CS than I should. Love the basket idea!

Lisa H. said...

so great sharing this with us Eva. your basket is a great, system for hold holding it all together. great use of those boxes, too.

Michele Boyer said...

I really like those boxes, Eva. And I'm SHOCKED that you too don't have a hoard of cardstock! (How do you do that?? I'm jealous. I wish I could keep things that simplified.)

Barbara said...

I love that basket for your cardstock!

Queen Mary said...

Eva, I'm so jealous of those 8 x 11.5 boxes you've found! Alas, I am an official paper hoarder -- I am working hard to use mine up though and I aspire to be as good as you are!

Wow, Eva. I am impressed that you don't hoard paper. heehee Nice storage for you. :)

Karen Motz said...

Such a nice compact storage system, and it would be easily portable too if you had to go crafting to a friend's house.
