Getting all your supplies organized can be a great help when it comes to scrapbooking. There's probably nothing more frustrating than having to search for just the right piece of paper or rubber stamp when you're trying to enjoy your hobby. Many people find that investing in scrapbook storage cabinets can be a tremendous help, but before you run out and buy the most expensive one or the first one you see, take some time to shop around and make sure you get one that's perfect for you.
For example, many scrapbook storage cabinets are designed to look just like another piece of furniture in your home rather than a bare cabinet. This is great if your scrapbook storage cabinets are going to be visible in the room, but of course this means that they cost more than other models and types. If you plan on putting your cabinet in a closet or don't really care about its appearance then you might consider shopping for something a bit more affordable.
No matter what the appearance of scrapbook storage cabinets you still want it to be functional and practical so you need to check on what's inside. Are you the type to add all your own embellishments and elements to your pages? Then you need many small sections and room for containers to hold all your stickers, stamps, and so on. Some scrapbook storage cabinets are very plain on the inside and just contain shelves and nothing more. This is great for your papers but not very functional and practical for those smaller items.
Sometimes you can convert other shelving units you may already have into scrapbook storage cabinets. Usually you need more shelves than they already have because you want to organize all your papers. You can easily add some additional shelves in between the ones you already have. Most scrapbookers also find they can personalize their own scrapbook storage cabinets with small containers to hold their embellishments. If you're handy with a drill you can permanently attach these to walls or doors of the cabinets, or you can simply use some strong glue. Making up your own containers can be a fun project. You can make up large envelopes from construction paper or decorate margarine tubs to hold some items. By converting your own scrapbook storage cabinets you can make something that really works for your personally.
