Storage Solutions

Now, I don't know if you are anything like me when it comes to scrapping storage (and I hope for your sake that you're not) your scrap room constantly looks like a bomb site! And for me, the major problem is storing all that 12 by 12 paper and cardstock. At the moment, my scrapping is very much about patterned paper so I have quite a collection. But due to lack of space and organisation, most of it is piled up or stacked against the bed in the spare room (which also doubles as the computer and scrap room). I am worried about it bending and the edges getting damaged. So when I happened up an article on storage on this blog, it didn't take me long to decide that these acrylic trays were just what I needed.

They are from A Trip Down Memory Lane and you get ten in a set. Now all I need to do is clear off the top of the chest of drawers and all my paper will be stacked off the floor and away from potential damage causers - including my cats. And a big thankyou to my Mum who helped me out with the purchase (she has seen the state of my scraproom and probably took pity on me!). I did toy with the idea of the cropper hoppers but I prefer the idea of storing the papers flat. It probably makes no difference but just my personal preference. There are all sorts of scrapbook specific storage ideas out there which I look at and drool but unfortunately they are quite expensive and most wouldn't fit into my limited space. So until I persuade Ed to build me a scrapbook shed (scheduled for the same day that pigs fly and the cow jumps over the moon) I will stick with the trays!

  1. Hi there, thanks for your comment on my blog x I had the same problem with deciding on storage for my paper, I looked everywhere and it came down to a wire rack or clear trays and then at the last minute, someone told me about a little rolling trolley you can get from Costco, its only £16 plus vat, cool huh!! Its got 6 drawers for papers and 3 smaller drawers!! I'm off to get one this week x

    Good luck with Best of British, I was one of the lucky winners from last year, so just go for it x
