Categorizing your supplies is key to your productivity as a scrapper. If you can find what you've got you’ll produce pages at record speed and save yourself lots of time and money. Using The ScrapRack ™ 4 Section System will simplify ever step of the Scrapbooking process from putting new supplies away to finding that perfect tiny embellishment.|
The 4 Sections
- Alphabets, Numbers and Punctuation
- Themes A to Z
- The Calendar
- The Rainbow
The most important thing about this system is putting EVERYTHING in one place. I know for some of us, the initial reaction to this statement is, “There’s no way I could fit all of my stuff in one place.” Like most things there is no “one size fits all answer.” But, we know this system works great for the vast majority of scrapbookers.
What you’re trying to eliminate is “Digging and Searching,” getting up out of your chair and coming back to your chair. This means that you need to put everything you would ever put on a scrapbook page into your 4 sections. If you buy large quantities of things you might also need to have a “Back Stock” area for storage. However, it you put some of those things into your 4 section system and then restock when you run out you’re going to save yourself tons of time and energy.
Section One – Alphabets and Numbers
These items are used on almost every kind of page regardless of the style, season, event or page content. Put your alphabet, number and punctuation supplies in this section, Diecuts, punch-out, tags, brads, buttons, and stickers should all be included. If it is a generic; number, letter or punctuation mark this is where it belongs. The exception to this rule is theme specific alphabets or number, i.e. Candy Cane letters would be kept with the rest of your Christmas stuff in December.
