Lovely Floral Embossing Folder Card Idea
New Layering Alphabet Edgelit - Baby Card

Trying out "Rainbow Order" this year

I'm trying something new this year!  Instead of organizing my Stampin' Up! cardstock in the 4 color families and In Colors in separate paper holders, I combined them all into one big rainbow!  I am LOVING my rainbow order cardstock organization so far!!! :)

As you may know, Stampin' Up! is taking the opportunity to revamp our color families in honor of their 30 Year Anniversary!!  Rather than put all my new colors into the new families, I decided to see how I'd like it in rainbow order!


Patty's Stampin' UP! Rainbow of Cardstock 2018 Color Revamp!

My inspiration came from Monica Gale.  Her cardstock is organized in one long horizontal rainbow row, but I don't have room to do that.. so this is how I have mine! 

You can see Monica's rainbow list here.

You will notice that I modified my order a little from hers, because I put the white, vanilla, and neutrals on the left, separate from the rainbow.  I am LOVING this rainbow order so far!!  Do what works for you, and the great news is, you can change it around anytime! :)

I love my paper holders, see the Stamp-n-Storage 8-1/2x11 cardstock holders here

Be sure to click the option to include the 8-1/2x11 or 12x12 paper holder label system to match your paper holder size.. I find them super helpful.. here is how they look:

Hooray; I believe you will love it! I have always organized both my cardstock, stamp pads/reinkers and markers in Rainbow color fashion and not by a brand's labeled color families. Color shades are what we artists/designers works with and allows for easier coordination of color combinations whether complimentary, contrasting or monochromatic color schemes. Here's a CraftyNotions Tip: Need help selecting project colors? The old-fashioned Color Wheel is still a useful asset whenever in doubt or undecided.


I have always done a rainbow type of order for both cardstock and small color samples on a ring. For me, I think more of “I’m looking for a green” and go to the greens rather than by color family. Any storage system is trial and error to tweak what is working for you. What works may change as tools and the way we work changes. Lovin’ these new colors!

Love it. I have always stored my colors that way.
