It is critical that you start some type of Scrapbook Organization System early in your adventure in papercrafting. Scrapbooking can be such an supply intensive hobby that many of us seem to need a ton of stuff, just in case. At least that's how it is with me.
You don't want to end up like me. I got so behind with my organization that my hobby of Scrapbooking turned into one of Organizing or looking for that particular supply I just knew I had but could not find. Not much fun in that!
I started Scrapbooking long before there were any storage options especially for those large 12 x 12 sheets of paper, or even places made specially to store you photos that were safe for preserving the quality of your photographs. Other than 3-ring notebooks and sheet protectors, there was not much available.
So I have had the opportunity to grow with Scrapbooking and have developed a number of storage options on my own and will share those as well as the ones that I have purchased along the way.
I will not review any products that I have not purchased myself and like to use or any that my friends are not pleased with. All the items I use are not listed here, so if you want to know about something in particular, please

Next, I refer you to our
Scrapbook Storage Binders
which I have used for years to hold my non-themed papers and cardstock, as well as die cuts, stickers, and other somewhat flat embellishments.
ScrapOnizer Scrapbook Storage Systems
I can also show you a relatively new item called the ScrapOnizer which holds a lot of paper and supplies as well as small tools and is great for taking to crops at
ScrapOniser Scrapbook Storage Systems.
Something I particularly like about these storage containers, is that they are great to take with me when I make a purchase of scrapbook paper or cardstock or stickers, I can put them directly into the ScrapOnizer and take them home without worrying about my items getting wrinkled, bent or dog-eared.
I took an entire empty set of 4 of these on a 6-week cross-country trip the summer of 2010 and they held up to the weight of other things being placed on top of them and I never had a damaged piece of paper and never had to worry.
They are also great for taking to Crops and storing all your goodies in them for completing pages.
