Organize It! Storing Your 12 x12 DSP and Scraps

Today I am sharing a great way I organize and store my Stampin' Up! 12 x 12 Paper Packs and the coordinating scraps. This also works to store your 6 x 6 paper stacks and their coordinating scraps. 

I created a file that has a picture of every DSP paper pack with a picture of all the coordinating card stock colors for that paper pack.  I will share the link to download your own PDF file below.

laminated PDF file to keep it sturdy... fits inside the envelope

Scraps fit nicely inside the poly velcro envelope.

I store the scraps in the envelope and lay the envelope on top of the paper pack with the laminated sheet showing (see below).  This makes it easier for me to grab the envelope and paper pack and create my project.

Sample of the file I created with the DSP paper picture and coordinating card stock.  Each pages has 2 DSP layouts per page.  I printed, cut sheet in half and laminated.

Wonderful Moroccan Designer Washi Tape

Made this beautiful card using the Moroccan Designer Washi Tape and Moroccan DSP Paper Pack.  The DSP paper creates a beautiful backing for the butterfly.  The butterfly was cut out with Dapper Denim card stock with Butterflies Thinlits.

August Stampin Class Projects

I was feeling over zealous with the projects for my August class.  The girls got to make a lot of great cards. I will show more photos and details in the coming days.

Pumpkin Pie Card and Gift Bag:  Gift bag is 10" x 6" and scored at 3 1/2", 4 3/4", 8 1/4" and 9 1/2". Bottom scored at 1".  After scoring, I cut off that little tab at the bottom (see photo).

Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso ink

I know this Designer Series Paper is retired, but I still love it and can't part with it.  You can easily use current DSP paper to make this gift bag.
