Scrapbook Organization

When it comes to scrapbook organization, there are systems for every budget, every size, and every item you could possibly think of. As you try to determine how you will organize, keep your needs first and foremost in your mind. Your organized space will only stay organized if it is practical and easy to use. Before you sit down to work on any scrapbook layout, make sure your space is organized. Everything should have its own place, and that place should usually be labeled. Keeping your supplies organized will help you get pages done faster because you're not dealing with the mental chaos that comes from a messy workspace.

Organization experts stress that you need to evaluate your needs before you buy a single storage container. Before you begin to organize think about the following questions:

  • How do you get your ideas?
  • Do you attend crops outside the home often?
  • Where are you most likely to work?
  • How much time do you usually devote to scrapbooking?
  • Do you have a set style or do you like to experiment with new techniques?
  • Do need peace and quiet when you work or can you handle a little background distraction?

The answers to these questions will give you valuable information for how you scrapbook and what your scrapbook organization system should look like. Keep them in mind as you consider each aspect of scrapbook organization.

scrapbook organization tip Remember that your workspace will only stay organized if you maintain it. Make a commitment to organize your space as soon as you finish. I usually find that I have to clean and organize as soon as I finish a layout and before I move on to the next. Otherwise, my scissors disappear under my paper scraps and I can never seem to find my adhesive. An organized workspace will allow you to work faster with much less frustration!
