I have everything labeled. Don't know what I would do without a label maker! The rest of my paper is in these 12 x 12 plastic cases. One of them has my name on it. That is my traveling one. It always has a project or the makings of a project in it. That way I always have something ready to work on if I am not under the gun to do something and don't feel like looking through all my paper to get inspired (this doesn't work well for me - to look through my paper!). See that aqua carry case? It goes along on a trip and carries things like small tape runner, pop dots. I do have three new cards to show you but they haven't gone to their homes yet. Next week should be able to post them for you. A retirement card, a female birthday and a male pop n cut birthday card! Hope to hear from you! Hugs to you all, Barb F

More Paper Storage
Thought I would finish up my paper storage. You saw the 8 1/2 x 11 and the 12 x 12. Now its time to show you the rest. They are all separated by size into their own plastic bin/case. There are 4 x 6 (or something like that), 8" square, and 6 x 6. I keep all three of these in my closet on the same shelf. I am on a self imposed temporary "do not buy any paper no matter what size or why" campaign!! If you are just starting out, I would highly recommend - do not buy paper for a stash!! It poses the huge problem of how to store it so you can find it again and use it!! Unless I happen to remember a specific paper pad and what size it is, I have to pretty much look through it all. Not grand because it would be so much more fun to go buy just what I need and then only have scraps to deal with. I can see plain card stock of different colors. If I had that to do over, I would just buy 12 x 12 and use it for everything - leaving some scraps. That's my 2 cents worth. Until I get way more paper used, I just can't see buying any no matter how wonderful. There is just no place left to keep it.
