We're loving this idea from Lisa at Scrappy Catz - before cleaning up from a scrapping session, use leftovers to create a card or two!
What a great way to organize and create in one fell swoop! Keep the clutter down, and get a head start on card giving!
Professional organizers will tell you that when it comes to paper, vertical storage beats horizontal every time. For everyday filing needs, hanging file folders make it easy to find and retrieve papers and records. No shifting and sorting stacks of paper; just flip, drag and drop!
Fast-forward to the scrap room! Scrap-sized hanging file folders are super storage solutions for 12-inch by 12-inch patterned paper, cardstock and scrap-of-the-month club kits.
Commercial products are available for scrap use, but they're expensive and hard to find--and some "made just for scrappers" products are a proprietary size that's hard to use with ordinary office furniture.
Solution: make your own.

Watch out for great ideas as scrapbooking blogger Jess of Scraps Of Home shares her small-but-organized scrapbook room!
Using inexpensive organizing solutions, she's "climbed the walls" to create space and storage for her scrap stash. We like the labels and signs--they make it easy to remember what went where, when the doors are closed.
This idea, we love. From the Scrapbooking Blog at CraftGossip.com, a picture is worth a thousand words:

We all know the story: products come and products go, leaving bits and pieces of "so-last-year" stuff behind them. What do you do with those out-of-style embellishments, stickers and tags?
