Planner Society Paper Storage

Just a quick post today to share how I’m currently storing my papers from The Planner Society boxes I have collected over the past two years. I really don’t have a huge paper stash from The Planner Society kits, but I do like to keep what I do have and the scraps in the original bags the kits come in. They are so pretty and helps keep my collection organized.

I had been keeping the papers in an 8.5 x 11 paper file holder, but my collection keeps growing and I couldn’t see or access my papers easily anymore. I have a few large paper racks, so it occurred to me to store them on one of my racks. I keep the bags in order of newest on top to oldest towards the bottom.

I love how pretty my paper rack looks now!

Mini Haul

Mini Planner Haul | Created by Jen Blog Hello! Today I just wanted to share a few of my new goodies I’ve picked up recently. πŸ’–

First up is this gorgeous Mini Recollections planner. I saw it at Michaels, and the rose gold coil drew me in. Then, I looked a little more carefully, and I noticed it’s a daily planner. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for- a pre-planner and a weekly inbox. I want to use it not exactly everyday, just as a brain dump for busy days or weeks. It was on sale, so I couldn’t resist.Mini Planner Haul | Created by Jen BlogI covered the inside first page. Recollections Planners sometimes drive me cray because the theme inside does not match the cover at all! Lol. I used Planner Society paper & acetate. I also added the bow on the cover (also from The Planner Society).

I added mine on top of some rose gold dotted acetate. It’s so easy to apply and looks beautiful in my planner. She doesn’t do custom names all the time, but only every so often, so keep your eyes peeled for when she opens up custom names if you’d like one too! This is the 7 inch version, for reference.

Stamp & Scrapbook Expo 2018

Hello! Happy Monday!

Well, this past weekend was the annual Stamp & Scrapbook Expo here in my town, and I had such a good time! I took a couple classes, and did some shopping too!

As much as I love shopping at Michaels, JoAnn’s, etc., there’s nothing like a whole arena dedicated to the things you love to work with. There’s so much to choose from, from the latest paper collections, to novelty items for scrapbooking. Although, I wish there was a little more planner stuff to choose from…

Here’s a little look into my weekend! First up is a peek at my haul! 😍Stamp & Scrapbook Expo 2018 | Created by Jen BlogI like taking photos of the signs they had waiting for all of us throughout the John S. Knight Center.Stamp & Scrapbook Expo 2018 | Created by Jen Blog

Workspace Wednesday Storage Solutions | Part 6 | Scrapbooking Paper

Hello! I’m back today with some more storage ideas for your crafty supplies.

Today is all about paper. Scrapbook paper is the base for so many projects. It’s an easy supply to find and is affordable, so it’s easy to find yourself with a lot of it and it can get unorganized easily.

I have a few ways I organize my paper collection. First, I have paper racks that came from a local store that was not using them any more. I was very lucky to get them at the time, and there are places you can find these racks, or something similar. Another great option are these stackable paper trays and magazine holders.

I organize most of my paper by designer or collection. This is a close-up of my Dear Lizzy collection.

This paper rack below stores my holiday specialty paper and my cardstock. It’s located in the corner of my room, as I use these papers the least, but I can’t part with them yet. On top is a Felicity Jane box, which houses more papers. I just love the black & white design of the box, so it stays!

Now onto another storage issue- what to do once you’ve created with those scrapbook papers?

I used to store all my scrapbook layouts in 12×12 three-ring albums. Those things are big & heavy! If you only have a few, not a problem… but once you get into double digits like me, it’s too much.

So after a lot of thought, I started buying Iris boxes to store my layouts in. These boxes are awesome! They hold tons of stuff! I left my pages in page protectors, took them out of my albums and organized the pages by subject, just as they were in my albums. Workspace Wednesday Storage Solutions | Scrapbook Paper | JM Creates BlogThe Iris boxes, even when full, are light and easy to handle. They stack easily too.

Workspace Wednesday Storage Solutions Part 3 | Raskog Cart

Hello! Today is part 3 of my storage solution series, and it’s all about the Raskog Cart! This little cart is very famous in crafters’ offices all over the world! Mine is actually the Target version. It was super simple to assemble, and is very sturdy. It’s a great way to store all kinds of supplies!

I have a lot of different things on my cart, and I do sometimes change what’s on here, depending on my current crafting needs.

Storage Solutions | Raskog Cart | JM Creates Blog

On the top shelf, I store my favorite stickers and sticker books. I have my Happy Planner sitcker books, and the Happy Planner binders you see towards the back are the books I assembled myself, filled with Happy Planner sticker books that I took apart. I do sometimes regret that… so that’s why there are books in their original format at the front of the stack.Β  πŸ™‚

The craft binder and file folders at the very back and on the side have stickers from Etsy shops and printable sticker kits. IMG_2690#allthestickersStorage Solutions | Raskog Cart | JM Creates BlogIn addition to my stickers, on the top shelf I keep my big Happy Planner punch, as well as my A5 and personal planner punches from Michaels.Storage Solutions | Raskog Cart | JM Creates BlogOn the middle shelf, it’s kind of a collection of different things. On the right, I keep extra paper and old Mini Happy Planner supplies.

They are filled with pens, stamps, and paper clips.Storage Solutions | Raskog Cart | JM Creates BlogFor the last shelf, I keep all my 6×6 paper pads, organized by designer and season. It keeps my papers handy, but also organized and out of the way.Storage Solutions | Raskog Cart | JM Creates BlogDo you own one of these carts? What do you keep on yours?
