Today, I thought I'd show you where I keep all my PL supplies. I don't mean to brag (yes I do), but I have the most awesome piece of scrapbooking storage furniture ever made. It wasn't actually made to store scrap supplies, but it's as if it were. What I'm trying to say is that I love this piece a lot. It might be my favorite piece of furniture.
I think I've shared pictures of it before. My Dad had this file cabinet in his office. I think it came with the space. In his business, he has a lot of filing needs, but this cabinet was meant to be a card catalog, I think. The drawers were way too shallow to be of any use to him, but are absolutely perfect for scrapbooking supplies, it turns out. So he gave it to me. It's just wide enough for 12x12 paper, and I've been using it for a few years now.
When I started with Project Life, and then (somewhat obsessively) creating 3x4 and 6x4 cards for use with PL, I realized I'd need a way to organize them in some useful way, so I turned one drawer of the cabinet into the PL storage space. It's the second drawer down, so if I'm sitting at my desk, it's at a convenient height for me to use.
I made tabs for the card themes I use most so I can find what I want easily. 3x4 cards are on one side and 6x4 on the other. So I guess I'm using the cabinet as a card catalog, as it was (I believe) intended to be used. At least in this drawer. The other drawers contain 12x12 papers, cardstock, acrylic stamps, rub-ons, scraps, etc. I'd say about 80-90% of the supplies I use regularly are in here.
Thanks for taking a look!
