Make it work Wednesday #3 & a Sketch

SC184The Orient_sak

This is for today's sketch challenge over at Splitcoast which is being hosted by Cindy/mothermark today. Awesome sketch with so many possibilities! I chose asian images from Innovative Stamp Creations and Designer Paper by Deja views red burlap flower. It's pretty straight forward, so I'll get right to the storage.

Many asked how I store designer paper and scraps after sharing my cardstock storage last Wednesday. I use wire cubes that I reconfigurated using tie wraps to place 2 shelves in each cube. There are index tabs on the edge that detail what is in each section. I use regular pocket folders and put the scraps in the pockets holding smaller pieces to the larger ones with paper clips. The 12 x 12 sheets (or anything that won't fit in a pocket is just tucked inside. A pretty simple system, but it works for me and I know exactly what I have and can find it quickly. Scraps are stored and filed back in the cubes after using them seeing as I have the folder out while working on a project. I hope this inspires you to find a system that works for you. Have a great Wednesday and "Make it Work!"


Don't ya just love the vintage candy striped carpet in my walk in closet?


Nothing fancy here, just inexpensive and functional.



  1. You have a walk in closet?! I could live with the carpet if I had a wic for my supplies...

    Very pretty card Shelly! Love the bold red and asian images!

  2. Beautiful card. Sorry about your cherry tree!!!

  3. I am in the process of redoing my stamp room and looking for ways to store that 12x12. Thanks so much for your ideas!
    Yeah, sorry about that tree-that must have been scary!


Thanks for stopping & telling me what you think!
