Is there nothing prettier than seeing your cardstock lined up all neatly in a row?


That is an absolutely delightful sight to me!

I’ve always, always, kept my paper+cardstock stored vertically. It is, by far, the easiest way to store your paper and use it. Add to it the Cropper Hopper Paper Holders and it’s complete heaven. I’ve had mine for years, so they do look a little different than what you get now.

I can’t live without them. In fact, back when my supplies were in

[over] abundance, I didn’t have enough. *gasp!* I know. So I had opted to take the cardstock–which resided in the cabinets above my desk–out of their sleeves so they could be used elsewhere. It was fine. It worked.

All I can say is I’m so glad to have them back in their warm and cozy little sleeves where they belong. (Ignore the labels on them. I can’t find my UnDu and they don’t come off easily. ;) )


Makes it not only so purdy, but convenient too!


I love being able to slide those little holders of joy out and easily flip through them. Or, I even take them out completely and thumb through them as needed. I also store my Silhouette mats along side my cardstock there as you can see in the lower-left corner. Mats+Cardstock go hand in hand.

And of course this all sits under the drawer with my cardstock scraps.


I know I’ve shown this drawer before, but this little section of my new space is truly pure delight for me. I love the new scrap organization that’s here. Again. Easy to use, flip through and put scraps away. Maximum height is 5″ and width can be 13″, but of course 12″ is all that I have. :)

To be honest, I don’t use much patterned paper, so most of those scraps end up going back where they belong. The cupboard to the left of this one is full of patterned paper.

Well, that concludes my week of office faves. There’s no greater feeling than being organized. So far I’ve been good about putting things away as I go. I hope I can keep up that routine.

The grand tour video of the place will be coming, I promise. :)
