Hello still no card today but since some of you asked me how I store my craft supplies I thought today would be a good day to post some photos.
First.. my Magnolia stamps are stored in a clear box by Collections. – here you can see the ones from the Sweet Rainbow Collection.
Usually Hanglar Stanglar come in a set of 2 (boy and girl) image – I have had a hard time to find a good solution for those kids. For now I love the clear storage boxes Stampin up offers and I just recently purchased a bunch of them. They are smaller and just perfect also for my sentiments. (show you on a pic later)
This is the top shelf of my craft unit – pretty much behind my chair. The bottom shelf holds “almost” (Christmas stamps are separate) all my Hanglars and I can easily flip through them to find what I need.
Inside the cabinet are my nifty clear boxes who store by brads, gems, ribbon-, lace-, crochet ends into colors, also other embellishments are in these boxes.
This is a pic of the shelf unit above my craft table. Bottom part are some of my Sentiments, top shelf Hanglars, Lili of the Valley and my Magnolia stamps from current collection. The ones from older Collections I had to “outsource” into a different room. I move my stamps from season to season around.
Ribbons, Wizzard (I hate this machine) and my new Shilouette
All my border dies are stored onto magnetic sheets and than put into a Stampin up clam shell box (they are now retired but you could still find some on Ebay)!
the dies are sorted in the boxes by manufactures as well. This just how my brain works. Everybody does those things differently.
Most of you have seen already my Copic shelf – it is a piece of 2 plexi glass unit and I scored it for like 15 bucks a piece if I remember right. To the left you can see the index sheet from 2 of my Lili of the Valley sentiment sets for easy reference. On the side leaned against the Copic unit I have more sentiments in the SU clear CURRENT storage boxes.
To the left over my desk is my Copic Aircompressor with some 12x12 papers. They are sorted into Season section.
oh.. ja… here is a shot of how I work my cards. Sometimes I just pick colors, papers, embellishments and add a image to that paper inside a clear envelope. Once I am ready to make this card I just pull it out of my drawer (see pic below) and start making my card. Sometimes the images are already stamped on good Copic paper or sometimes just on scrap paper to remind me what I was thinking when packing this “package”. If that makes sense
Again, we are behind my chair next drawer holds all my 6x6 paper pads and more Sentiments – I think I mentioned that iam a Sentiment addict . Papers are sorted in sections from Manufacturer.
Bottom drawer holds some of my Stampin up papers that I use for matting.
Some of my punches – the seasonal punches I had to bring in my other storage cabinet which not in my actual craft area.
Storage for my Magnolia papers – they are all sorted in to colors – I just reorganized them all. I had them sorted into Collection but it did not work well for me.
Ribbon spools on my Craft table
More punches I use on a regular basis.
Pixie always close where iam
My craft table when I am working on a card.
Here is my “shy guy” hiding behind the drawer.. when he was little he used to sleep inside the cabinet when I had the paper pulled out now he has gotten too big for that.
Well.. this is my tiny nook – of course I would looove to have a nice room just for all my craft stuff but even if you do not have much space, it works. If you are wondering what the maker of the storage units are.. they are by Ikea – Effective. I would love to purchase a couple of more pieces to add underneath my table. Speaking of table.. the extra long one I have is made by my husband. It was a gift for my 40 birthday.
