If you are a paper hoarder like me, you have lots and lots of paper. For the longest time I would keep all my paper packs separate, even keeping the scraps in the same bag so they wouldn't get mixed up.
What a mistake that was!
Once I got the Cricut, I realized that I needed a ready supply of scraps available to cut letters, shapes, and other fun stampable items. So I sorted through my scraps and organized them into containers by they rainbow. Red/Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Then I have containers for White, Creams, Browns, and Black/Grey.
Now whenever I need a shape cut I dig through my scraps and find something that matches my project no matter what paper pack it's from.
