When you buy 12x12 paper with individual journal cards do you cut them apart immediately and add them to your PL stash or scrapbooking stash or do you leave the sheet intact and only cut out the one(s) you are using at that time?
ie: Echo Park Photo Freedom. Most of the collection pack is double-sided journal cards. If I add it to my regular stash with the rest of my EP stuff I will probably not remember to use it. If I cut it up and store it with my PL stuff, I am thinking I will probably use it more.

If the B side looks like something I wouldn't use, then yes, but if there is a chance that I would want to use a piece of the backside, then no.

Agreed. If I would rather use the backside as a set with the rest of the EP, then I would keep it in. Especially if I didn't 100% LOVE the journaling cards. Otherwise, I'd cut out all the cards and put them with my PL stash.

|Posted: 1/25/2013 4:01:42 PM|Yes!!! That's the main reason I bought my Tonic trimmer. I had SO many of those sheets, and I kept forgetting to use them! I'm not worried about the B side - heaven knows I have enough patterned paper - so I chop, chop, chop!
It's nice to have it in a container and ready to go, so I can flip through it all when deciding on a journaling card.

If I don't want to use the b side and needed to use them I cut them apart.

Cut them apart as soon as I get them. if you like the B side get 2 sheets and cut 1UP

I cut them up and put them in a journal card bin that sits on my desk. I pilfer through it often.

I cut them up right away. Since I only scrap using PL now, it makes more sense for my storage and use purposes.

I cut them apart and put them in the bin with journal cards/spots. I don't usually scrap by collection and I always put cut paper with scraps.

I don't typically cut them apart until I use them.
What are you looking at?
|Posted: 1/25/2013 9:04:59 PM|
I don't cut them until I'm going to use one, and then I only cut the one I use.

I cut them up. I have found if I keep them as a sheet then they end up getting mixed in with my other 12x12 sheets.
|Posted: 1/25/2013 9:53:10 PM|
I cut them up and use them on cards with a bunch of scraps. A super fast way to get a stack of cards done in a flash. I don't do PL and only use most journal cards aren't big enough for my stories!

I don't cut them apart until I use it. Maybe I should consider cutting them like most of you do that way I'll use them more.

If they are double sided cards, then I cut them up. If one side is journalling cards and the other is a whole sheet of PP, then I don't - I wait to see which cards I'm likely to use, or if I'd rather use the paper, or a combination of th

What I usually do is leave it as is but I keep all my cut apart sheets separate from my regular 12x12 papers, I have the paper cubes from ms where I store my paper. my cut aparts are all on one shelf together and I just sort them by brand, then collection! That's for all the single sheets I buy. But if its a EP collection pack say then that goes on a different shelf with the rest of the collection packs I have! Then all of my loose journaling cards are either organized in my ikea Alex drawers or if there new and I haven't used them, then I store them on my peg bored! I have a system down lol.. But I tried once cutting apart an entire collection pack when I first got it and I didn't like it in the end because I didn't end up using it and its easier for me to store them by the packs so I really wish I didn't cut them up! But find what works for you if you feel like cutting them up then do so!

I ended up cutting them apart. All of them were doublesided journal cards except for the calendar sheets. It didn't make sense to keep them intact. I would probably never remember to use them. I also cut apart the calendar sheets. I figure I can grab another sheet of that if I want to use the B side as the collection is brand new.
|Posted: 1/26/2013 10:04:13 AM|
Why did I buy it? If I bought it for the 12x12 side, then no, I don't cut it apart. If I cut it apart for the journal cards, then yes, I cut them apart and put them in my journal card bin.

No, I don't cut them apart until I need to use one, then I might cut the rest out. Normally, I just leave them together, in case I decide to use a piece of the other side or not. I usually don't love every single journal card on those sheets.
|Posted: 1/26/2013 10:38:27 AM|I cut them up ( it is so much fun) If I don't like one I use it the PP side on a layout or card.

cut em up and but in a box for journaling cards. When I do a tradional LO and need a journaling card I go to the box and find a journalling card...sometime it is from the same collection...sometimes I find one I like even better from another collection. I keep my collection packs together otherwise. I also do PL but no kit, I choose a collection to work with each week and a color scheme, then I shuffle through the cards to find ones that work, again sometimes from the same collection, sometimes not! This way I am using product instead of waiting to use it for the pefect project.

I keep them whole since I scrap by collection, for the most part. I do like the idea of cutting them apart and putting them all together in a bin, though. I may try that.

Previously, I left them whole and rarely Used them. I just got some new ones & PF by echo park & cut them up immediately & clipped them together.

As a rule, I go ahead and cut them apart. If I really love the backside, I will buy two of the particular piece of paper. Since I experienced a decline in income, I am trying not to do that unless I really really love the other side.
