Creative Chat–Organising Designer Papers


It's time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You'll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT forum. This month, we were asked the following questions:

How do you store and organize your patterned paper?

How do you store your scrap patterned paper?

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team!

I am loving this new feature that the MFT Stamps Design Team are doing each month, it has given me the opportunity to look at how I organise my supplies and see if there is anyway I can improve things. I have totally changed how I store my Die-namics after our first Creative chat and was able to take the best from what the other Design Teams shared with us all to get a set up that works for me and I love it.

This month we are talking about Designer papers and I have a ton of those both in 12” x 12” and the 6” x 6” paper pads which are becoming increasingly popular. I have to admit I much prefer to use the 6” x 6” paper pads when I am making cards these days as the design is a better size for card making. But I still love my larger papers for things like boxes, books and larger items I might use.

Anyway this month I have created another video to show you how I organise my patterned paper and scrap patterned paper. I hope you enjoy it.

Both my husband and I were equally impressed by your stash of papers! Love the idea of taping an envelope on the back of your paper pack for scraps. Great idea!
