I was looking at the Scrap Rack's videos for organization. I think their method of organizing in the 4 categories makes sense but it seems that I would need a super large rack to accomodate all of my stuff... I think it is a good system if you don't have that much or are just starting out. Anyone actually convert their scrapbook room into this system?

I was trying to convince a friend that she didn't need her ScrapRack and she should sell it to me. She kept it.

I think the concept of them is great but I don't have enough room for one and I have way too much stuff to put in it.

I looked into it a bit, watched a bunch of videos and read reviews, because I love pretty much anything organizational. But honestly...I think it's ugly. It takes up a lot of room (like a big table top) and it's not pretty. It's not my thing.

I did and love it! I have a ton of stuff!! So in the end I have 5 bases and like 76 or so spinders. I can't have all my spinders on the rack at once and so a lot of them sit on the shelf. I just pull the themes I am working on and place those on the rack. Love it and have never looked back.

I did and had 2 racks. Just recently sold them.
I went with the categories they suggested and if you look for items in that way then the scraprack would be really benefecial. But I dont look for items that way. I keep like items together, not by color or type. I got very frustrated and took it all apart and prefer the way I have it now, so much easier to find, FOR ME.

I took a class they had at CKC a few years ago. I liked a lot of her ideas for organizing, but the Scrap Rack itself wouldn't fit into the space I had.

I bought one and love it as well. I think you can organize it any way you prefer. I actually have so much stuff I use it for flat items only and use my old sticker binders to store other embellishments by color. I have several methods for sorting different things like wood veneers in divided boxes etc. I do have a dedicated scraproom so that does allow me more space but I really do enjoy my scrap rack.

I bought one from a woman who was relocating from New York to Florida, she left her things in it as well, but there were a lot of sheets empty as well. I organized all of my things into it as well ( I didn't/don't have a ton of stuff.

I love the concept of it, but I am planning to sell the scraprack itself with the pages I didn't use. She also had the travel binder and I keep all the spinders in one cube of my wire cube shelf and just use the ones I need inside the travel binder which is perfect for my needs. This post reminded me I need to pull out the rack, spinders and pages and get them listed!

I have one with only one base and the 7 spinders that fit on i so it fits on top of a chest of drawers or on top of a rolling crate. I can pack it all up into the crate and take it with me if needed. Lately tho, I've been using kits, so I'm not using it.

I do use her system of organizing by color. I only put alphas and larger embellishments like borders, large flowers, stickers, chipboard in it. I have divided plastic boxes that I use for smaller embellishments,organized by color like she suggests. I also like the idea of using her project planner pages for organizing photos, paper, and embellies for layouts and I use the travel binder all the time.

I have one and I love it. I thought I wouldn't like it because I'm one of those people that really hates clutter and I like things hidden. I have it set up the way they recommend and love it. It really doesn't take up any more space then the way I use to organize. I found that now I use up my stuff a lot more. It is so easy to find things and quick that I actually use my stuff now.

I just finished putting mine all together and LOVE it. I really took my time organizing it and purged a lot of stuff that I will never use. I put a good 2 months into this project as I only wanted to do it once. I used her guidelines but also did it in a way that makes sense to me and the way that I scrap.

It took me a long to decide to do this system. Watched all of the videos and have a sister and 2 nieces that have been using it for a year or more. They all love theirs too.

So far I am thrilled that I am using this system. HTH

I LOVE the Scrap Rack!!

I have it organized by theme for about 3/4, the rest is non-themed by color (buttons, ribbons, brads etc.) The biggest issue is having the space to keep it set up. When I buy stuff it just goes into a bin. Then every few months I sort the stuff into the Scrap Rack. I also have some page protectors in there that I use for those special theme 12 by 12 pieces of paper that are so difficult to find when you finally get around to scrapping that special event/travel page.

Is it SO easy to flip through so that I can actually USE the things I have (which is quite a bit). If one of my dd's is doing a card or other project it is easy for her to just flip the pages to see what I have that she can use without knowing ahead of time what is in my stash.

Her Concept of organization and steps shes uses is very helpful and doable. But that Rack is just Gaudy and Ugly and way too cumbersome. But I do think it's a great tool for getting and staying organized.

I asked for the travel binder for Christmas. I'd like it to hold my small stash of Thickers, stickers, die cuts and embellishments like gems and enamel dots. I like using die cuts I've made on my Cameo, but they tend to pile up, so I'm hoping using the divided page protectors makes them easier to find and use.
