    Is there a filing system available? Maybe in a bench? With hanging folders?

      Hi Sandy,

      I’ve not come across such a filing system you’ve mentioned for scrapbookers. But I would believe that there are scrapbookers out there who would put together such a similar system to store their scrapbook paper. If you do create your own filing system, do share with us!

        Crop in Style used to have one. I believe you can still get the hanging file folders. That might be a place to start.

          Thanks Alicia for sharing!

          Upon searching on Amazon, I’ve found that Cropper Hopper has a new hanging file folders system that comes in a sturdy rolling cart. You can take a look at the hanging file folders and the heavy-duty rolling cart which are sold separately. These are designed for storing your scrapbooking supplies.

            I found one on a garage sale site. It will hold 12 x 12 paper but it works great with the smalker hanging files for smaller scraps. I use color tabs to organize each folder. It does get bulky on the bottom as all the pieces settle but it solves the issue of scraps and saving money on paper.

      There used to be one called the Cropper Hopper. I don’t know if they still make it or not.

    I use a filing system. I hated fighting with the flaps on the accordion-type folders and the handles seemed to break off others. Horizontal filing cubes are neat but fades the paper and is not portable.

    Though it is not perfect, it’s the one I’ve stuck with the longest. It is portable too. It does not work as well for my patterned paper as the top edges get a bit tattered because it is necessary to flip through individual sheets, especially ones that are not cardstock. With my cardstock solids, I can see the array of colors from the top and have much less flipping to do.

    So, this is what I did. I had a clear file box from an office supply store I wasn’t using. I sorted out all my cardstock into about 24 piles an put them inside regular 8.5×11 hanging file folders. Most people with this system use the file track included with the box, but mine was a bit narrow on the bottom and bowed on the top, so my files did not slide nicely. I remedied this by using a U- shaped laminate threshold track (made of metal that you snap the threshold into) because we had it on hand. I installed 2 pieces across the file box, both across the front, and the necessary distance the folder needed near the back. This took care of both problems. I was left with a small 1/2 in. wide gap left between the back track and the back handle, which I use to hang another folder with my 8 1/2 x11 photo paper and vellum.

    To transport, I simply cover the top with a garbage bag and secure with a long elastic band. Not pretty, but it gets the job done.
