My New Craft Room & Stamp N Storage SALE!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I am in LOVE with my new craft room! I promised you more pictures and a look at how I organize my space so here goes…

I wanted to make the most use of the space so we planned for tables to wrap around 3 walls. I love that I have 3 different work areas (which gives me room for a couple of friends to stamp with me). The long table under the windows is great for laying out different projects (card kits, product shares, scrapbooking, painting).

The slanted corner wall provides great storage with the Ikea Kallax unit. I store all my Designer Series Paper in the top cubbies for easy access.

The DVD shelf beside the storage unit holds my retired stamp sets. My current stamp sets are on the shelf by my computer (for easy access when I’m typing my blog or placing an order).

The drawer unit beside the computer desk holds my business supplies (catalogs, shipping labels, postal scale and label maker). I have a  rolling cart for my printer that fits under the table (and out of the way).

I love seeing everything along this wall and having it within reach when I’m creating. I use Stamp N Storage holders for ribbon, ink, punches, blends, paper, accessories, and more! It’s compact and I can take advantage of the height which leaves more work space!

I put a lot of thought in to organizing the drawer units in my stamp area. The 5 drawer unit on the left (Ikea Alex) holds desk supplies, adhesives, envelopes & note cards, precut cardstock, and current packaging.

My favorite Ikea piece is the Alex drawer unit on casters. I can roll this out and store extra things in the corner under the desk if needed.

My Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer and Simply Scored Scoring Tool fit on top for quick & easy access! The wide drawers hold my blocks & Stamparatus, ink spots and ink refills, embellishments, coloring tools and accessories, and retired wood stamps. That’s a lot of storage!!!

*The dividers for the ink spots (above) and clear embellishment tray (below) are from Stamp N Storage. (They are made to fit in the wood drawer unit sitting on top of my work table.)

I store more embellishments in small clear jars so I can easily see what’s inside.

Around the corner is the area for cutting and embossing. *I used my Rewards and purchased the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and OMG I am so glad I did!!!  I absolutely love it! It is so much lighter and easier to turn, the different plates are included and labeled AND there’s pictures so you know exactly what to use for each “sandwich” when die cutting and embossing with different types of embossing folders!!! (I recommend putting this on your wish list or Join Stampin’ Up! and purchase at a discount!)

These two drawer units with file storage (Ikea Alex) have all my supplies for die cutting and embossing, as well as grid paper, trimmers, and tools.

I label my dies and embossing folders which makes it so much easier to find quickly! I just purchased the Stamp N Storage die envelopes and I love them!!!

Because my stamp room is filled with sunlight during the day I store my cardstock in the closet to prevent it from fading. For now I am using magazine file boxes but am planning to take advantage of the Stamp N Storage SALE today and purchase the Paper Holders. (My previous paper storage was a mail sorter and I loved having individual slots for every color.)

Craft Room Organization & Tips

January has been a busy month! Getting the product shares ordered, cut, packaged, and shipped was my first order of business! After that I had a bunch of thank you cards and gifts to make and send as well as my calendar card kits and monthly tutorials. Then I decided it was time to tackle my New Year’s resolution to clean up and reorganize my craft room. It’s still a work in progress but, I am happy with the results so far and can’t wait to create more projects! (It is so nice when I can find what I need!) I thought I would share a few pictures of my room as well as some storage ideas and tips in case organization is on your “To Do List” this year.

I have a hodgepodge of furniture, baskets, etc. to keep me organized. I keep my die cutting machine out because I use it all the time.  My embossing folders and dies are stored beside it for easy access. I put a little green sticker on current products then, when it retires, I simply remove the sticker and decide if it is something I will keep or get rid of. (I purchase what I love so as you can see I keep a lot!)

Current stamp sets are stored alphabetically above my work area. They are stored in photo boxes to keep them from falling over. My retired (but loved) stamp sets are organized by themes (baby, birthday, holidays, seasonal, sentiments, thank you, wedding, etc.). An old bookcase/desk that belonged to my grandmother works great for my theme organization. I also found this DVD storage rack at our school’s rummage sale and love that it holds a lot of stamp sets!

The hanging basket storage works great for storing my DSP swatch books, adhesives, and embellishments right at my fingertips beside my desk.

I found this mail sorter at a second hand shop and love it for storing my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. It’s organization and decor all in one!

My 12 x 12 cardstock and DSP is stored in plastic magazine files I purchased online from Amazon.

I am in the process of trying to use up my stash of DSP.  (I have to stop hoarding it when it goes on clearance.)  I try to remember my mom’s advice, “A sale is not a sale if you don’t need it!” I find it’s always a fine line between want and need.  LOL (*I’ve been working on a project that uses 12 x 12 DSP which I’ll share later this week.)

I also have (and love) many products from Stamp N Storage.  They are high quality and designed especially for Stampin’ Up products! They offer so many storage options for ink pads, blends, punches, dies, ribbons, and more!  Here’s some of my favorite Stamp ‘N Storage products…

The Stamp-N-Storage link is always on the right hand side on my blog.) *Note: I receive a small affiliate fee when you use my Stamp-n-Storage shopping links. However, I can’t say enough about how these quality products help me stay organized and highly recommend them.

Organization is personal. What works for someone else may not work for you.  Understand how you craft and what works best for you. Here’s 5 organization tips from Mary at Stamp ‘N Storage:

 Craft Room Organization Tips

  1. Prioritize space for the things you use most. You want to have quick, easy access to these items.
  2. Let go of unnecessary things. If you haven’t touched it in ten, five, even two years it is taking up precious space for what you are currently working on. It is OK to get rid of things.
  3. Do a little every day. It helps a huge task seem more manageable and helps you stay organized once you get there.
  4. Put things away where they belong or find a place for it. Resist the urge to just shove stuff somewhere to deal with “later”. When later comes you will be overwhelmed and it will take a lot longer to deal with.
  5. Put things away after you use them.

I have the hardest time with #5! I’m working on #2. What about you? I’d love to hear from you! Leave me a comment with something you found useful from today or share an organization tip you use.  I’ll pick a random winner to receive some retired goodies (tip #2 above).
