My Patterned Paper Shuffle

I'm using my older patterned papers less and less - preferring what is on the scrap table or on the floor because I can see it!! My older patterned papers are in plastic consatina folders (from K Mart!) alphabetically by supplier. Although this worked when I had a love affair with certain suppliers, nowadays I'll use just about anything if I like it or can find a use for it. And although I have a catalogue of swatches of all those patterned papers in a booklet to refer to, I really can't be buggered any more going to that each time I want patterned paper.

So, I'm going to take one plastic folder, pull everything out, and put them into colours! (I don't know what I'm thinking- this is a HUGE job). I'll also put in the swatch folder which colour I've put it against (for those that are double sided or multicoloured in case I can remember what the paper looks like but don't know which colour I've file it under).

I don't know if this will help or not, but I've got to do something. I use the Bazzill still and its in colours.

I'll start small and see what happens!

My bazzill is currently in colour co-ord folders, but not my patterned paper.

  1. OMGosh to be so organised!

  2. It may seem so Mary - but its an illusion. In other ways (like my scrap table) I can rarely see what the top of it is made of!


I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment!
