Craft Room Organization

Ink Pad Refill Marker Ribbon Storage - blog.Stamp4Joy.comIf you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for tools for better craft room organization.   I’ve found the perfect solution with my modular pieces from Stamp-n-Storage.  And now you can buy them as starter kits and save money, which wasn’t available when I purchased my storage pieces.

I’ve had all manner of craft spaces, from a dedicated large loft that also served as my classroom, to smaller rooms, to a portion of a room.  Since downsizing, and then later my son coming back home, I now have virtually no “dedicated” space other than cubbyholes and shelves here and there.  All along, my Stamp-n-Storage craft organizers have managed to adapt  beautifully from one setup to the next.

I use a folding craft table as my work space these days.  Now that I am extremely limited on space, I’m finding these modular pieces are more beneficial than ever before, while they help keep me organized and able to craft easily.   It seems the less space I have the more important they become.

The picture above shows my Ink Pad, Marker, and Refill Combo Holder, with 60 slots to hold all my Stampin’ Up! colors and then some.  You can use the top as a shelf for extra storage, which I did before getting my ribbon rack.

My Ribbon Holder on top I had customized to fit along the length of the top of my ink pad combo piece.  It comes with a couple dividers and a display shelf, which is being used on the right to hold my crock full of scissors, adhesives, etc.   I’m a little low on ribbon right now, so I’m also using my ribbon rack to store my buttons and other trinkets that come in the round containers.  The shelf has a magnet strip across the inside front to hold the dividers in place.  If you add some magnets you can use it to display cards along there, too.

Framelits Storage 1 - blog.Stamp4Joy.comFramelits Storage 2 - blog.Stamp4Joy.comI think my most favorite of all is the Wafer Die Storage with Magnet Cards.  No longer do I have to search through all the plastic sleeves, pull out the framelits, and fight to get them off the taped insert.  Now they’re neatly organized and so easily accessible.  Every time I use it I exclaim, “I love this!”  No kidding. 🙂

I added a label to the top of each magnet card and filed them in alphabetical order.  The medium size is the one featured here, and I ordered 40 magnet cards.  I think it will hold up to 60!  The large size is double the length of the medium.

I removed it from the shelf just to take these photographs.  Normally I don’t move it.  I decided to get it with the lid to keep the dust out, and I made sure I had a space so I would be able to open the lid all the way and wouldn’t have to pull it off the shelf because it’s about 11 pounds with the magnet cards.

The magnet cards are more than just a magnetic sheet.  They’re backed with something to make them stiff so they stand up and don’t flop over.

    Cute!! I just bought my first Stamp-n-Storage piece and I love it! I bought the distress ink pad case. I love to be able to see all the colors at once. It makes my projects so much easier.

      I agree, Sarah, it’s much easier to be creative when I can see what I have and everything’s close at hand. I loved having my Stamp-n-Storage craft organizers on my desk as I was designing projects. They don’t have a large footprint, so they didn’t hog much space. I don’t have that luxury anymore, but they’re still very helpful to keep my craft supplies neat and organized so I don’t lose track of what I have or where it’s at. The less space I have, the more vital they’ve become! 🙂 And with the extra 10% off, you can save a little, too!

    Love your layout. I agree on the quality of the StampnStorage items. They are amazing and sturdy. He thinks of everything. I have the lock down punch holder, the whale tail punch holder the large ink/pen/reinker holder, and another ink pad holder and a second lockdown punch holder.LOVE THEM ALL! I need to completely clear out my room and start over to get it really organized, but doubt that will ever happen. I’d made a good start and the sewer backed up, so everything in the laundry room came into MY craft room and a lot of it never went back where it was. Thanks for your inspiration.

      Oh, no! I hope you get that all straightened out soon!

      I agree, Brett at Stamp-n-Storage has thought of everything. And if he hasn’t, just tell him what you want and he’ll custom make it for you! Love that! That’s what I did for my ribbon holder, I had it made longer to be the same length as my ink pad combo holder.

      Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

      Hi, Jeannine!

      Sorry I didn’t mention which size I got, I will add that to the page. I got the medium size die holder with 40 of the magnet cards. It holds up to 60 I believe. I decided I wanted the magnet cards all the same size instead of a mix of the two sizes available because I’m a bit — shall we say “persnickity”? — funny that way. LOL!

      Isn’t the card holder cute? I love it and take it with me to craft shows to display cards, but I love it at home, too. I got it a number of years ago through the Pottery Barn catalog. They had one that stands on the ground, too. They sell it as a way to display photos. 🙂 You can see them HERE.
