    oops! Blank step (See step #2)

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 2
    Step 2

    First, Gather allll your Scrapbooking stuff (I had room enough to put my card making stuff in here also)

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 3
    Step 3

    Get your accordion folder (or otherwise (you could use a secretary box, or file cabinet)

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 4
    Step 4

    Decide on your 'themes'
    I have;
    *Seasonal (more specifically, it's for holidays; Halloween, Christmas, thanksgiving etc)
    *Paper (12x12 does NOT fit in my box [see dimensions] but random cardstock and 8.5x11 papers DO.
    *Labels ( Christmas labels, Tags, speech bubbles, etc)
    *Fonts/Alphabet
    *Borders (Includes Photo corners & Frames)
    *Stencils
    * Scraps (Newspaper clippings, Movie / Event tickets, etc)
    *sayings (Sentiments, Emotions, quotes)
    *Congrats (Baby, Grad, Bday,Wedding)
    *Summer (Camping, swimming, hunting, Sunshine, BBQ)
    *** YOU MAY DECIDE TO BREAK THESE THEMES UP FURTHER, DEPENDING HOW LARGE YOUR 'STASH' IS (ie; how I have seasonal and Summer separated)

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 5
    Step 5

    I should also add to step #4 that I also have 2 'Misc' Folders ( I really should have made more, ... )
    one has Misc. Embellishments (Stickers, etc) , On has Misc. Supplies (Unmounted stamps, ribbon, etc)
    Now make your labels, Either Printing them, hand writing them, or using a stencil.

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 6
    Step 6

    Start Adhering your labels to the 'Tabs' on the Accordion folder (Mine was recycled and the tabs said stuff like 'Bills', 'Education' , 'Savings' etc. I simply covered these with my labels.
    ***Optional
    you can do it alphabetically for an even more OCD feel (I simply organized mine in order of what is used most (paper being first of course ;) )

  • How to organize a thing. Organize Your Scrabooking Stuff!!!  - Step 7
    Step 7

    NOW'S THE FUN PART!!!
    this may also (depending how much stuff you have) be the most time consuming part... just take it easy, tackle one box at a time, and eventually, VOILA! a compact (though heavy) scrapping box - Excellent also for taking to scrapping parties etc.
