As I worked on my new workshop Scrapbooking Outside the Pocket for Big Picture Classes I spent a lot of time playing with pocket products. And the more pocket products I collected the more organization I needed! So here are my 3 steps of simple Project Life organization.
I found that there were three different types of pocket products I used. So I came up with three storage systems. Each system is used for it’s own unique purpose. Let’s take a look.
First up is my full Project Life kit. The core kits come with these plastic trays. I simply took the tray and put it in the first drawer of my storage shelf. Next to the tray I have a small white basket that stores all of the extra grid and lined cards I have.
When I’m working on Project Life I can just pull out the drawer and it has everything I need.
But I have more pocket products than just what’s in my Project Life core kit. I’ve been buying lots of Simple Stories, MAMBI, and other pocket products. I use those pocket cards on scrapbooking layouts more than I do in my Project Life album. Since I want to keep track of what collection each card is from (for blogging purposes) I want to keep those cards in their original packaging.
For me it’s easiest to keep those packages in a small bin. That way I can easily flip through and see what I have.
But pocket products also come in 12×12 sheets. And those full size sheets don’t fit in either of my other storage systems. So I found a 12×12 tray that I keep those cards in. Even when they have been cut into, I still find it easiest to toss the remains of the sheet in the tray.
So there you have it! My three systems for Project Life organization!
