Even More Stylish Scrapbook Storage in a Snap or Three

It's Saturday, and we are back with another installment of Stylish Scrapbook Storage in a Snap.

If you are looking for the second Counterfeit Challenge this month, it will be up tomorrow.  With that extra leap day this year, we thought we ought to get one more day for at least one challenge - it only seems right.

Today, we hope you are happy to see this next installment in our highly visual series of posts showcasing stylish and effective storage ideas for our scrapbooking stash.  In case you missed the first or second installments, you can find them here and here.



Good order is the foundation of all things.
Edmund Burke


Exactness and neatness in moderation is a virtue, but carried to extremes narrows the mind.
Francois Fenelon


Clair definitely believes that 'order is the foundation' and is sharing her system for storing the 'leftovers' from her monthly counterfeit kits. it's simple, cheap and so useful. And, hopefully, we all agree that it's stylish too? Head on over to her blog, Obstinate Pursuit for more details.



Elaine, who often plays along with us, has a nifty way of storing her 6" paper pads.  She a bought a pretty box from TK Maxx and keeps each of them in a popper wallet (usually bought from the £1 store with 4 for £1) . When she cuts into a pad, she keeps all of the scraps with the remainder of the pad in the popper wallet. Some of the slightly larger pads, like Kaisercraft ones, don't fit in the popper wallets.  Instead she used zip-lock food bags, but warns us they are not as sturdy and therefore a less successful option.

Tailoring the size of the containers to the contents, is always useful. Using the same type of storage in different sizes to repeat the look is usually attractive.  Susanne uses baskets, lots and lots of baskets, to store various supplies.  Here you can see she has separated her alphabet sheets by size and then fit them into appropriate size baskets.


Leslie loves a little vintage vibe & this sweet hanging shelf
was a steal at a sidewalk junk sale for only $3.00!


And . . . it is now last call for you to join in. Our last installment in this series will post here on March 26th.  So if you want to show off your snazzy jazzy scrappy storage, please send Susanne a single snapshot of a storage idea you have in your space along with 2 or 3 sentences explaining how it is effective storage.

See you back here tomorrow for Challenge #2 for March.

  1. Great ideas ladies! I especially like Elaine's solution for the leftover pieces of the 6x6 pad. I've just been tucking them into the pad but usually end up with little scraps all over the floor. I will definitely be giving this one a try!
