a few days ago on a crafting group a few of us discussed the virtues of sorting DP's by color and I decided to give it a try.
It took me 6 hours to do 2.5 drawers and this is how those ended up. PLUS I threw away about 8lbs of pieces I really couldn't stand and would not use. They went into a box for the kids club.
While I was doing this I really was thinking Wow, I'm still not happy with this, and I also remembered one time before I started and stopped. Then I remember why! Then I said okay this project is over. Fortunately the pads that I separated were from the time I first started buying printed card stock and not my favorites.
I still have my index sytem working and I have two drawers of paper sorted by color so when I am just looking for blue I can find blue. Other wise I will continue to make cards the way I really enjoying making them, grabbing a stack and putting it all together!. Here are two of my early cards using this method
If you are a card maker and wonder if you should sort your DP stacks, I hope this helps you to decide whether or not it will help you in your craft!
Thanks for stopping by and here are a couple of freebies!
Ah so truly agree Ginny, have kept all my designer papers in books and bags, even the scraps cos then I use them, they go with what they are with...
Plain cardstock I have colour sorted, and that is great ....lovely cards and great freebies, thanks!!

I don't have enough paper to separate into colours, just a tray full of 6x6 pads, so no problems here, oh and some (12x12) on a shelf that came in packets that 'collapsed' :-)
Thanks so much for the freebies Ginny
