I am always looking for ways to better organize my craft supplies and these products have been a helpful addition to my studio – so much so, that I want to share them with you!
Karin Marker Storage
I love my Karin Markers and when I first got them, I was storing them in their original box. That worked great initially, but I quickly figured out that I wanted something a little more easier to work with. When I found this awesome acrylic organizer over at Simon Says Stamp, I was so excited because it holds all my 60 Karin markers. It even has a little extra tray that I use while I’m working to hold my swatch ring or small tools.
I have really enjoyed the addition of my Scor-Pal Stacker to my craft space as a way to corral all my Scor Tapes! I pull this out whenever I need my double sided tape and use it right off the stack! This tool can hold many rolls of tape – a bonus for space-saving!
Dies can be tricky to organize, but a couple of my favorite ways to store dies are to stick them to magnet sheets! You can cut magnet sheets to fit in storage sleeves to contain either store stand alone or coordinating dies! If I am putting a coordinating die set onto a magnet sheet, I like to slip it into the storage sleeve with the stamp set it goes with.
I’ve also recently installed a magnetic wall system inside my closet! This DIY project was inspired by my good friends and Simon teammates, Susan R. and Beth Opel’s craft room. Susan posted a photo of a repurposed door she and Beth have covered with dies. I don’t have the space for something that large, but I had been trying to come up with a way that I could keep my most used dies close at hand. All it took were these magnet sheets, a few black screws and some careful measuring to install this handy, magnetic wall storage in my closet! This has been up for a couple weeks now and I’ve been so happy to have these dies so easily accessible!
Divided Organizer and Storage Sleeves
I like to keep pre-cut card fronts, card bases and other most used cardstocks handy so that I don’t have to stop and cut something down while I’m in the middle of creating. I discovered that these divided organizers are perfect for not only holding all my different pre-cut papers, but they keep them sorted by type because of the handy dividers!
Each container has three sections, which means I can store three different types of cardstocks in a single bin. You’ll also notice that some of the cardstocks are in storage sleeves – I find that stamp storage pockets are a great protector for keeping my cardstock clean and safe from inky messes!
Do you enjoy seeing organization ideas? If you do, I’d love to hear what you’d like to see more storage ideas for. I may consider adding them to my future organizational videos! Let me know in the comments. :)
