This is a spin-off of the SQOTD yesterday :D

Please share with us how you sort your alphas. Take us through what you do with your stickers, loose alphas, chipboard letters, etc. Feel free to post pictures or just explain what sorts of containers you use!

I'm intrigued by Michelle's sorting by letter system. Very cool idea.

I like how Michelle did that too, but I would have a hard time separating my letters. Kind of anal like that...LOL My stuff is a MESS, but a nice mess that al held in baggies.

This is how I do it currently, but I'm outgrowing it already :lol: I have all my letter stickers, rub-ons, and packaged letters in a basket. I have them lined up smallest in front to biggest in back, so that way I can just riffle through them to grab what I want. Chipboard letters that are out of their packaging now are put in baggies to keep them together and thrown in the basket, too.

I'm thinking it might work better if I do something similar, but organize them by color, though. I just need to find something that will hold everything. Like rub-on books are bulky if you have a lot of them... so a file folder wouldn't work very well (I don't think, anyway).

So far I only have a system for my stickers, I have them sorted (black, white, and colored) and stored in Cropper Hopper sticker envelopes. I haven't figured out a good system for my chipboard, so hopefully someone will have a great idea for that.

All of my thickers are on my Clip-It-Up. Heidi Swapp Chipboard letters are together in a couple of magazine holders. Letter stickers are in a Sterilite drawer in my closet. One drawer for neutral colors, another drawer for anything colored. Extra chipboard letters at the end of a package go into an embellie organizer by letter. It's worked pretty well, so far. But I'm always looking for ways to make it better. ;)

Oooh, I like the idea of separating them by neutrals or color... that would work for me I think!

I really don't have a system. I just put them in a canvas bin. I have one for scraps, one for stickers, one for alphas.

I have my embellishments in 2 clear 'shoe box' boxes from walmart.. I think I need more boxes or less embellishments! lol

Stickers/letters I have in a clear sleeve that goes in a album then in a upright paper holder.

That saying, that's not how I have it in my rolly case for what I take to crops... lol

I have all my Thickers in a plastic bin from walmart (laundry aisle, cream color, stackable and about 6 bucks). I keep them in rainbow order with black/white in the front. Small enough to fit on the bookshelf but big enough to held them all, chipborad goes in with my other chipboard stuff in a huge baggie.

All my letter stickers are in a letter sized file box along with any other carded embellies. I really need to put them all up on my homemade clip-it-up so I can see what I have!

I changed my system from the last time I posted on here! I know have ALL my alphas sorted by color in those 13x13 plastic iris "pizza boxes." Naked chipboard letters go in my brown and I know to look there if I need them. I don't have very many purple or silver/gold, so I have those in one box. Otherwise, one box for every color. I love this!

I have this holder I guess its made for sewing. You can fold it flat, If anyone knows what Im talking about. It holds all of my alphas as long as I dont get anymore!
I used to have them sorted by color but I pull stuff out for crops and then it never gets reorganized. My chipboard is in a drawer.
