Organizing Your Card Stock
Here are a few tips on Organizing Your Card Stock. I’m showing you how I organize my supply.
I keep my Card Stock organized by color name and color collection. In my “studio” or work space, I have about a half-package of each color stored in magazine files with dividers. I store the rest of my supply in folders in a filing cabinet. The filing cabinet is an easy way to let me see what I’m needing to order and to let me refill my working supply.
I also prepare a supply of card bases and card layers. I store the card bases in envelopes or folders that fit the card base size. I have accordion file envelopes for my 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” pieces and file folders for my 4-1/4” x 11” pieces. These are also sorted by color collection.
My card layers are stored in a file box. These are 5-1/2” x 4-1/4” pieces of card stock which I can cut down to layer size, depending upon my design. I separated each of the Neutral colors with dividers, but the other colors get to stay in their collections. The dividers take up too much room to separate each color by name. The Neutrals can blend together, so keeping each one separate makes them easier to use.
