Patterned Paper Organizing is pretty simple. I discussed Organizing Your Card Stock in a previous article, so I thought you’d like to know what I do with my Patterned Paper, also known as Designer Series Paper (DSP).
When I get my package of Patterned Paper, the first thing I do is open it and look at all the patterns. Then I label the backing page with a divider and file it with the paper in a paper keeper. I use a Round Tab Punch for the divider label, but since that’s retired, you can make dividers from any label punch. I’m fond of the Pretty Label Punch (143715) myself. Just punch a label from Card Stock and fold it in half. I use a home labeler to identify the Patterned Paper, but you could just as easily write the name on the label front half. Adhere the label to the backing page and your paper is ready to file.
In my previous article, I also talked about making my card bases and layers and keeping them in a ready-file. You can do something similar with your patterned paper. Personally, I don’t like a bunch of scraps, so I cut the DSP into 4” x 6” blocks and file them in a photo pocket page. The 6” x 8” Kraft Album (144764) makes a perfect storage unit for the DSP in the Variety Pack 6” x 8” Photo Pocket Pages (144205).
I use the name of the DSP pattern to file my paper. However, you can label your paper by color, pattern or occasion. The key is to make it easy to find so you can use it when you’re ready!
