My paper stash has grown and it was becoming very difficult to look through it.  I decided to take it out of the drawers and store it vertically.  I spread out my stickers and other embellishments in the other drawers.  I don't know if this will work for me, but it's worth the try.

I also took down the baby gate and brought up a table for my kids to craft at while I am scrapping.  At one point I left the area.  When I came back, I saw my older son had 'put away' his papers too.

Sharing the craft space is something I always wanted to do.  I hope it works. 

I also shared this on Three Scrappy Gals.


  1. I store my plain cardstock stash vertically and can find just the right color easier than my patterned paper that is stored horizontally. I hope your kids enjoy crafting with you! Kathi

  2. Your space looks so inviting and it looks as if your kids were enjoying themselves. It is great to share your hobby with loved ones. I am sure they will cherish the memories forever.
