How do you organize your pattern single sheet paper? Do you sort it by holiday, season, colors, patterns? I need ideas.

A little of both....If it's just a pattern paper I put it with the color that pops to me the most or what I first saw in it. But if it's for a specific holiday then I put it with that holiday. Had to laugh when I saw the post because I just finished going thru all my paper and did the pattern papers last. I have WAAAAAYYYY too much paper....I mean, I "knew" I was a paper w$*#@ but I didn't realize I was that bad.

Lol Jessica! I'm totally a paper *%$1@ too. I don't buy single sheets anymore but many I sure have quite the collection from over the years and stuff my mom keeps giving me.

Mine is simple, but probably not the most organized system. I have mine divided into 3 categories; warm patterns, cool patterns, and neutral patterns. Each group has a drawer in one of those sterilite 3 drawer things. I do have a few papers that I buy for something specific (Kendra, Josh, pet, wedding, vacation, etc.) that I store by subject in a 12x12 accordion folder.

My PP is stored in converted post office boxes I got for free. when I buy paper it is grouped with PP matching CS and any paper specific embellishments to that group. so when I want to do a page I grab the plastic sleeve and the papers all match. the scraps are still with the group and I scrap. I then have boy paper in a box, girl paper, basic grey, the scrap room kits, holiday I have two other boxes that have other groupings not kid/gender specific. My pads of paper are stored in sleeves the same way.

I have alot of paper packs, and I've been leaving them in their pack. I used to separate and store in their own plastic containers. I'll have to look at my labels, but I believe I have holidays/seasons, stripes/polka-dots, alphabets/words, boy, girl, floral, and misc. I badly need to reorganize to, so I'm sure I'll be making some changes.

The ScrapRack is doing another challenge (8 weeks I think). You don't have to have a ScrapRack, but I believe it's designed around it pretty good. I didn't do the challenge during the challenge timeframe last fall, but watched the videos (instead of watching the webinars) and took a lot of ideas that I worked into my own storage containers, space, etc because I didn't want to start over and buy a whole new system that would cost hundreds of bucks. I believe the website is scraprack.com
