How Do I :: Store 12x12 Paper

posted on: 4.15.2012


Well today has not been the best! It started off by finding out that my phone has been washed!!! I LOVE my phone because it is amazing! I had like $600 of music and apps and all that fun stuff on it. Now it's all gone :( Anyways, I'm happy I get to write this blog post so let the happiness begin!

I always get the question (ALWAYS) :: "How do you store your 12x12 pattern paper". When I first started scrapbooking I must have researched this for hours and hours because I was on the biggest budget + when you watch other peoples room tours you think you will have as much stuff as them. I do now but when I started (2 years ago) I barely had anything. 12x12 paper can be stored in a variety of different ways but you have to find what works good for you and roll with it.


I have watched a variety of videos from people storing there paper in folders to shelfs to baskets and so on but really there is no exact way of storing paper perfectly. I personally started off storing my paper on a shelf. I had it all stacked up and up and up and up until I needed more shelf space to expand. I then expanded into what I have today! I love LOVE LuV this type of storage. These 12x12 scrapbook paper drawer units I purchased at Walmart for like $12 a piece! I have a total of 2 of them which holds all my paper perfectly comfy! I also love how you can easily stack these and still open the drawers.

I store my paper by the brand just because I tend to pick and choose + I have really good memory when it comes to remembering my scrapbook product (nothing else really). So I can remember "O yah, I have that echo park paper" in which I can go to my echo park section and look for it. You can also store your papers by prints, colors, favorite > least favorite and so on. I personally think that storing it by brand is by far the best way to store paper. Here is a little breakdown of my brand storage (I spelled american crafts and bo bunny wrong, its hard to see on the photoshop grid background!) ::

How I love this storage. I tend not to pull from the top 2 shelves anymore because I like the 3rd, 4th and 5th shelves the most. So really its all up to you. I like this method of storage the best and I think I will always use it.

YAY! A giveaway! Lets see who read this post OK (lol)!! Leave a comment below to win one of my "April Crafting Kits" which is show to the left and can be purchased here. If you have purchased a kit already and you win this giveaway i will refund you for your purchase! Don't forget to follow my blog in the top right sidebar (I love my followers)!!

  4. I store/categorize my paper by brand, too. Just like you, I can remember who made a paper more than I can remember much of anything else. I love those drawers, tho- I need to get something like that!

  7. Great storage idea Drew. I'm struggling to keep the colors separated, so maybe sorting by brand will work better.

  27. I am the same way, one you tube video and blog after another. I think I have changed mine up about a million times now too. Sometimes I think I like to collect and organize as much as I like to scrapbook.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for sharing this idea Drew! I actually love this idea - safe storage for 12 x 12 paper - gotta love it! I could never do mine by brand because I cannot remember the companies - I just know what I like :) Thanks for the chance to win one of your beautiful kits!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I really like the idea of storing by brand, except that I am old and don't remember very well anymore :), so, that wouldn't work for me. :( I DO like the plastic drawers, as well, for storing. It keeps the edges a from getting bent. Thanks so much for sharing with us! Love your kit too! It would be awesome to win! :D

  30. I am so sorry about your phone. What a bummer! I like the way your store your paper. I store mine in an upright file holder and do it by theme. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Hey Drew! I'm sorry to hear about your phone disaster. It's going to take a huge chunk of change and then some to replace what you lost. My deepest sympathy. Ha! I have resorted to vertical storage of my patterned papers. I like the ease of "fanning" through stacks of paper that are in an upright position. There is always the possibility that I will go back to horizontal storage, but for the time being, I am enjoying my current set up. Take care!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks for sharing your storage solution! My papers are all in a stack right now (I don't have many), but I know I'll need to figure something else out eventually!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you for the storage tips Drew. I am going to have to look for something similar that fits 12x12. My current milk crate is so utterly disorganized I can never find anything.

    P.S. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great kit!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Who reads? Are you kidding?! :-) I do read your posts because like your ideas. I've been looking for the same kind of storage that could hold 12x12 papers, too. I currently store my papers in a book shelf but it doesn't help me remember what products have, plus the corners would get crumpled.
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My 12 x 12 storage is horrible and I need to reorganize! I keep it basically by color and then keep my extra special favorites by themselves.

    I love the storage you use!

  47. Storing my patterned paper has always been a big problem for me. I can't decide whether to go by color, pattern or brand. But I think that your idea of going by brand is the best one I've heard. I have one of the Walmart drawer systems like you have, but I plan to go get another and give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I read it! I used to just file it in a paper storage box when I first started. Now, I like to scrap by brand, also,so I store it that way,too! I like to keep the collections together, too!

While I loved how neat and organized it look it didn't work out long for me :p I have a horrible memory so I was constantly pulling out the drawers and making a mess searching for the right paper. I now keep them in those vertical files and it's easy for me to thumb the corner to find the perfect sheet to use :)

  104. Hi Drew,
    I have been scrapbooking for about five yrs. and have changed the way I store all my 12x12's a few times. I do like your storage drawers, but I have so much paper I would need at least three of those drawer units. Yikes ! I need to not be such a "paper horder", but I love pattern paper. Thanks for letting me follow your blog. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hi Drew,
    I have thousands and thousands of sheets of paper. I store the majority of my paper vertically in Cropper Hopper paper keepers sorted by manufacturer and "collection" then placed on a shelving unit. I do have most of my large paper pads and blank card stock in horizontal storage cubes.

  113. This is pretty much how I store my papers, too. Great minds really do think alike. ;-) This is one of the nicest kit compilations I've seen. So full of graphic detail and yummy colors.

  114. Hi Drew! I haven't ever posted before.

    I really wanted to say though that I love your work, and I am thrilled to see how you do things.

    I store paper vertically in Project/Paper envelopes from I think cropper hopper (I got them at Joann's about 6 years ago). I have stored all the envelopes in a HUGE (34x13x14") storage bin that I got at Wal-Mart. It works really well for me. I sort by color for solids, then by types of prints in color sections, (geometric-in cool, warm and transitionals, etc.), and I put specialty papers in separate envelopes. I think there are about 15 in all. I like it because I can thumb throu and pull papers up a few inches and compare colors and print without having to refile. Since I rarely stick to one collection or brand this is ideal.

    I don't remember who made most of it though :( so if I want to join a contest or something I have to go get new paper for it. YAY!!! Shopping for scrap products is so fun!

  121. I'm sorry you washed your phone :( Sometimes it works, I've heard, to put it in a baggie full of rice? You know, to try and dry it out? Anyway, it can't hurt!

    Thank you for your giveaway. I have my patterned paper all over the place and clearly have accumulated FAR TOO MUCH over the past 12 years or so!

  123. I store paper like you do! By brand! As my paper collection grew, so did my storage issues. Like you, I use those 12 x 12 drawers and it works out great!
    Good karma going your way, would love to win one of your April kits. I bought flowers from you and think you're awesome!

  131. hi Drew! I am new to your site as of Tuesday! I love it and your explanation about paper storage is a GREAT help to me....I'll be going to WalMart looking for those 12x12 storage drawers! Thank you for taking the time to do this site, I know it is going to be a tremendous help to me, and so many others too.
    THANK YOU!

  132. Hey drew,
    Thanks for such a great opportunity, im kinda new to crafting, when you go into a craft shop you want everything, but the major problem....money, everything is too expensive. I LOVE reading your blog, and I love the idea of storing by brand...LOVE IT!

  135. Drew, I just "found" you today while listening to various youtube tutorials on mini albums, while I was working. (Church secretary --- working on those Sunday bulletins and what not!)I thoroughly enjoyed your tour of your craft room. WOW!! AMAZING!!! I saw so many cute ideas that I can't wait to try in my own craft room / son's old room -- he grew up and moved to Cincinnati but he comes home a few times a year so I have to leave a bed in there so I don't have as much room! LOL! Am working my way thru your blogs and saw the giveaway. I'd love and would be honored to win! Now to finish working my way thru those videos and blogs! :)

  136. What an awesome paper storage idea!! I had NO CLUE you could get something like that at Walmart and THAT CHEAP!!!! Right now all of my stuff is in a rolling suitcase....so if I ever run away from my children at least my scrap supplies are ready to come with me....forget the clothes....lol. Thanks forn a chance to win (that is if I haven;t missed it, just found this post today but have followed for quite a while....just been a bad blog reader lately!!)

  137. I'm an expert with secure storage Perth, but my craft supplies have simply refused to be organized! This is a great storage solution that I just have to try.

  138. I feel I have raided all comments so sorry if you answered this, but do you happen to know what brand these draws are Drew? I live in the UK and finding it very hard to find storage for 12x12 papers... I wanted some draws like this but they're all just that bit too small or massivley too big :( (not to mention the excessive cost over here for a bit of plastic!) Cheers Imogen xX
