Scrapbook Area 2

I have been working on reorganizing my scrapbook area.  I'll be sharing it as I get it completed.  Here's Scrapbook Area 1 that I previously completed.

Today I finished reorganizing my paper stash.  I didn't take any before pictures because there wasn't any dramatic changes. 

Before, I had all my paper separated by colors.  Both scraps and full 12 x 12 sheets were in the same drawer.  This was no good.  I could never find my scraps and ended up cutting up 12 x 12 paper when I really didn't need to.

I decided to separate by 12 x 12 paper from by paper scraps.

The first step was to dump out all my paper and separate it all.  This took several days and I did it little by little.

The next step was to find my BFF, my label maker!!

I made labels for my 12 x 12 paper...

... and for my paper scraps.

Here's my 12 x 12 paper, separated by color... pink, red, orange, and yellow...

...green, blue, purple and white...

...black and brown, miscellaneous...

Then below I started with the scraps... pink and red...

... orange, yellow, and green...

...blue, purple, black, brown and white.

The 12 x 12's

The scraps

The whole shabang.  It may not look like much, but it makes finding what I need so much easier. 
 (Please ignore everything beside it; I'm still working on those.)
