Craft storage and organization products aplenty and you can SAVE BIG thru Monday, 10/10!

Hello Fellow Crafters!

We hope you’re all enjoying a wonderful Fall thus far.

I was just up in the Midwest and I so enjoyed seeing the early Fall colors (something we don’t get here in Austin, Texas).

If you’re already seeing Fall in all her glory, please share some pix in the comments – I’ll take all the Fall I can get!

I don’t know about you, but I’m big on prepping my craft space for the upcoming holiday crafting onslaught.

And this reorganization often involves finding new ways to store not just my old favs, but also my newest treasures, some of which have been released during the last couple of months and are now finding their way into local stores, and into my craft space.

Sound familiar?

Well, if it does, and you’re looking for a great resource for high-quality organizing and storage options, and you want to SAVE BIG, then you’ll definitely want to read on!

Craft Storage & Organizing By Color – Worth a Try?

Who’s looking for a little colorful inspiration?

How about colorful inspiration for organizing your crafting supplies?

I came across a three craft storage products that I thought you might want to check out, especially if organizing by color is something you want to try, or already love.

Of course these products would also be great if you just really like lots of color in your creative space or when crafting on the go!

This is the first time I’ve seen these items at retail, and I haven’t had a chance to try all of them out myself (yet!), but I thought I’d share them right away in case you’re on the hunt for a new solution for organizing by color, or simply organizing with colorful solutions.


Now keep in mind that just because a storage unit has a craft-specific name (such as two of those below have), that doesn’t mean you can only use them for that type of tool or supply.

Craft Storage: Product Spotlight – Ink Pad Storage from OrganizeMore

Craft Storage: Product Spotlight – Ink Pad Storage from OrganizeMore
Looking for storage solution ideas for ink pads? We’ve got some!

Good morning,

Jessica here with a storage product spotlight on ink pad storage from OrganizeMore!

OrganizeMore is a small family-owned business in Tennessee that provides hand-crafted and hand-painted storage units for crafters.

Currently, they have ink pad organizers, ribbon/washi tape organizers, pegboard wall units, punch/stamp storage, journaling card storage, marker storage, paper storage, paint storage and more.

And chances are, if you can dream it up, they can build it for you!


For today’s spotlight, I am going to focus on their ink pad storage units.

When I first started papercrafting I stuffed my (small) collection of ink pads into drawers in my craft desk.

I quickly realized that 1) the color I wanted would ALWAYS be on the bottom of a stack in the back of my drawer, and 2) I forgot what colors I had and would end up using the same limited palette…my early cards, lots of Peacock Feathers distress ink going on.  Ha!

When I finally decided to switch to an actual ink storage unit, I looked at several and ultimately settled on the OrganizeMore ProInk Organizer.

And I am SO thrilled that I found this product!


I started off with one of the ProInk Organizers which holds every ink pad size up to those the size of the Stampin’ Up pads.

I purchased two of these units, but quickly filled them up and started looking at other options from OrganizeMore.


Around this time I was really getting interested in various techniques with Distress Ink Pads, Reinkers and Markers and I was looking for a unit that would hold all three.

OrganizeMore had units that would hold Stampin’ Up markers, reinkers and pads, but they didn’t yet have a Distress Ink option.

So I put in a request and, a few months later, the 48 Distress Ink/Marker/ReInk Style Organizer was added to the line-up!

I think this might be my most favorite unit just because it’s so pretty!


Here’s a closer look (below) at each cubby.

The dowels keep the re-inkers and ink pads from getting stuck too far back in each compartment – love that!

Now, I have to stop and admit that I’m a bit of an ink hoarder.

I LOVE the gorgeous colors and, with all of the companies continuing to put out such quality ink pads and colors, I kept needing more and more storage!


Next, I purchased a ProInk/ReInk Organizer (see below) which ended up working really well to store some of my extra ink pads, as well as the brand new Distress Ink colors that have been released this year.

Again, the dowels help to keep the re-inkers from getting lost in the back of the organizer.

And, this unit also fits Stampin’ Up pads.

Finally, I totally ran out of room for storage units on my craft desk and, while all of the units can be wall-mounted, I didn’t want to take up wall space either.

So, a few months ago I contacted Mike at OrganizeMore about the possibility of creating an ink pad storage unit specifically for the cubbies of an Ikea Expedit/Kallax, and he was open to the idea!

In fact, so much so that he created this unit and I got a great reward – one for free when they were produced!

I have three of these new units now and I anticipate purchasing a fourth soon!

The dividers are a little different than OrganizeMore‘s traditional corrugated plastic inserts, but they work just as well and using these dividers allows customers to fit more ink pads into the unit (which is a total win in my book!).


Here’s a look at this style of organizer:

While these units are slightly different than the other units sold by OrganizeMore, aesthetically these units still fit with the other units they sell, which is a big plus for my slightly OCD brain!


I have always chosen the white units with white inserts as they fit my craft room design best, but OrganizeMore offers nine different color options for the units so you can surely find something that will complement your craft space!

Organize More also offers daily deals where they discount one of their units by 15 percent.

And, as a special perk for our readers,
OrganizeMore has given us a discount code
good for 10% off your purchase,
good through July 25th!

The discount code is: CSI715.


I cannot say enough nice things about the products from OrganizeMore.

They’re classy, well-designed and perfect for corralling the craft products in your life!

I hope you’ll visit them and see if there’s anything that would work for your craft room.


Thanks so much for visiting and please stop by my blog, All The Sparkle, to say hi!

Have a great weekend,
Jessica
