Up until this past weekend, I suffered from a bad case of catch 22...
Despite my efforts to recycle and reuse my scraps, my scraps were in such disarray that I would give up digging through my envelope of scraps...I'd grumble and procrastinate to myself that,
A couple of weekends ago, I was at a crop...One of my tablemates, Dayna, told me that she organizes her scraps by color and keeps them in separate envelopes. Seems so simple...and I do that with my normal, uncut papers...But, for some reason, I never thought of organizing my scraps by color...
Well, "some day" was this past Sunday evening....I took my Creative Memories DecoFile folders, labeled them by color, and sorted my scraps by color family.
My DecoFile folders have 3 pockets, so I put colors I use a lot together in the same group, like pink and purple...turquoise and blue...yellow and orange...black and white.
Now, my scraps are nicely organized in a way so that I can find and USE them! Aaaahhh...much better!
