ScrapRack Page – Tips & Tricks.

Follow these easy tips for loading your ScrapRack pages and you’ll get the best results from your ScrapRack.

Big stuff to the inside

It might seem counter-intuitive, but you want to load your bulkier items into the pockets that are closest to the Spinder. Load these items from bottom to top. Click on the loaded page image to view larger. Also, something like these bulky packages could be easily reduced in size, by putting these brads into a small zip-lock type bag and then putting the bag into the pocket.

Use both sides

Remember that your pockets are clear on both sides. Place items into the pockets facing both frontwards and backward, this will ensure your supplies are the most visible. With something like these large alphabet stickers – think about how you want to view them before you load the pockets. In this case, the alphabet is in “alphabetical order” across both pages.

Load’em Up!

Your pockets will hold multiple items – in most cases a minimum of 3 items, in the case of “flatter” items like stickers, you can put as many as 6 or 7 in each pocket.

Remember to put some items in facing forward and facing backward for maximum visibility.

Above the flap

It’s best if the items in your pockets come up above the “flap”. This makes it easy to grab things out of the pockets. If you always work at home, try tucking the flap behind the item in the pocket – again, it will be easier to remove the item when you want it.

Smaller items should be placed behind larger items, this will prevent them from slipping out if you turn the page upside down. You’ll be able to see them on the opposite side.

If you travel with your ScrapRack or sections of your ScrapRack, you’ll want to leave the flap over the top of the item. In this case, having the items come up over the crescent cut, and behind the flap, will help keep everything in place, should you turn your ScrapRack pages upside down by mistake.

Adding pages

When adding pages to your ScrapRack, always remove the Spinder from the base and lay it flat on the table. This is a good time to test your Spinders to see if they’re too full. When you push all the pages over to 1 side of the rings, and “pop” the rings open, no pages should “pop” off the rings. If they do, consider “thinning” your Spinder.

Turn from the top right

Your ScrapRack pages can get quite heavy, turn your pages from the upper right hand corner.

This will keep things down in the bottom of the pockets where they belong. This is most important if you’ve got your pages in a binder rather than on a ScrapRack base.

Turn pages from the upper right to keep supplies neatly in the pockets.

  1. I hate to say this but I have several racks and I find the spinders much weaker than a standard 2 or 3 inch 3 ring binder. Im constantly frustrated by this. I use the little rubber sleeves and have to use them on every spinder ring. Do you have plans to improve the strength of your spinders?

    • Hi Wendy, sorry for the late reply! We just saw that a bunch of comments did not get automatically approved on our website.

      We are sorry to hear that about your Spinders. Our Spinders are designed to be strong, so they can hold multiple pages. If you are having issues with your Spinders, please email us some photos to, and we would be happy to help you!

  2. I purchase the package from HSN and seen the video but would like a print out of the blog is there any way I can get a PDF so I can print off?

    • Hi Denise, sorry for the late reply! We just saw that a bunch of comments did not get automatically approved on our website.

      At this time, we don’t have a PDF for this blog post. However, if you click the right side of your mouse and select ”Print” in the popup menu, you should be able to print this whole post.

    • Hi Kristen, we have not discontinued the ScrapRack system! At this time, our ScrapRack items are out of stock and we are trying to get them back in stock as quickly as possible.

  3. I am interested in the ScrapRack system for embellishments and stickers. Do you have any idea when they may be back in stock.

  4. I have problems with the rings not aligning properly or not closing? When I turn pages they get stuck. Someone mentioned sleeves for the rings? Do you sell them?

  5. Hi…How do we get new spinders? I have several that have the velcro strip peeled off between the top and bottom spindles again. This happened when I first bought my triple Scraprack and those affected were replaced. Now that I’m traveling a bit, and moving spinders in/out of the scraprack, I am finding the glue has not held up. Concerned that this could be an ongoing issue. Wondering if updated spinders would include a fix instituted since the ones I have were manufactured. (I checked, and they are not overloaded according to instructions.) Please let me know. Thanks.
