Welcome to week five of the 52 Weeks to an Organized Workspace challenge, y’all! We are officially done planning our creative spaces and this week, we’re getting down and dirty with our scraps. Going forward, the format of these challenges will be slightly different than what it’s been for the last month. There won’t be as many printables, but there will definitely be a lot more links to ideas for organizing our creative spaces.
Do you collect scraps? Are you too stubborn to throw away even the smallest piece of left-over paper? Are all those little bits and pieces scattered all over the place?
Scraps were one of the things I struggled with over the years. At one point, I wasn’t even sure what constituted such a thing. Ultimately, I settled on anything less than 12×12 and organizing scraps by color. That’s what works for me. Now, it’s your turn to figure out what works for you.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Organize Your Stuff Challenge – Week 5. Scraps from The Keeper of the Memories – This is how I’ve had my scraps organized for years and it works well for me. I can always find exactly what I’m looking for.
Organize Your Stuff Challenge – Week 5 from My Love Affair With The Label Maker – I absolutely love how Stacy organizes her scraps and she also shares lots of other ideas & inspiration with us.
Coral, Green and Blue from Decor 8 – This isn’t technically a craft-related post, but I’m definitely loving how this looks and I could see doing this a few different ways… Even using a binder with divider tabs.
Scrapping the Starters from Purple Mailbox – Check out this amazing idea for using scraps. So awesome, isn’t it? Ashli is always full of amazing ideas for all things related to scrapbooking and papercrafting.
Take some time to think about how you’re going to organize your scraps and then get to it. Don’t forget to share before and after pictures.

Psst… If you haven’t already, you’re definitely going to want to come hang out with us in our 52 Weeks Facebook group. That’s where we’ll be chatting about the challenges and our creative spaces.
