As popular as the pocket page scrapbooking as become, why has someone not designed storage containers for our 4x6 and 3x4 cards? Has anyone found anything that fits the bill? I just want something to sit on a table to hold my cards.

The medium CMTH storage box is PERFECT if you have a lot, and the lid closes. If you want them to stick up so you can flip through, there is a 2.5L Really Useful box with a 6" wide slot and four 3" wide slots. It works great for desktop storage but doesn't close.

I use this photo storage container. They hold the 4x6 and the hold two stacks side by side of the 3x4. It closes, stays neat and orderly and you can label if desired. I purchased mine from M's. with a 50% off coupon., but I've seen them several places.

This is what I used
I love how my journal cards are all there in the open and so easy to access.
I also have a video on this blog post with more detail on how and why I did this

I use one of the Antonius inserts like Tracy posted above, and it really does work perfectly. That said, I know not everyone can get to an Ikea. I've seen similar drawer dividers at Target in their storage section, and I've seen similar things in the bathroom storage.

I've also seen lots of cute divided office containers (the ones that are sort of chipboard covered with paper) at Target, TJ Maxx, and Tuesday Morning. I think it kind of depends on how much stuff you have, how you scrap, and whether you want everything out in the open or not as to what types of storage would work best.

I also have one of the smaller stackable plastic containers from Target that's like snapware. I love that it fits the cards just right, and it's portable so I can take all my stuff to my workspot when it's time to get working. I can also sort things into the trays and keep them all contained.

I struggled for so long finding just the right storage for the PL cards. Then I had a smack my head moment. You know the white plastic insert that holds the cards in the BH PL kits? Well I just took that out of the box, put it on my table and placed the cards standing up rather than laying flat how they come. I am able to hold multiple sets of BH cards AND my Studio Calico Cards AND even some that I print off. And they all fit perfectly!!

I use the Becky Higgins boxes my kits came in and stand my cards up. It's a great size to sit on my table, I can fit LOTS, and everything fits perfectly.

Thanks for sharing all your great storage. I just bought some PL items and was dreading opening the packs as I didn't know how I was going make sure they didn't get lost in all my other supplies.
