A great OrganizeMore giveaway, coupon, and review to kick 2015 off right!

Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 12.57.27 PM

Happy New Year CSI readers! I hope you are as excited as we are to kick off a great New Year! We are starting off with a fab GIVEAWAY, a COUPON CODE, and I have a review on a great product from our friends at OrganizeMore! The giveaway deets are at the bottom of this post.

I was lucky enough to get a Pro Ink Organizer for review. I used to have a rotating ink organizer that sat on my desk, but it didn’t hold enough ink pads, I have waaaaaaay too many. 😉 Also, I felt it took up a large footprint on my desk.

This ink organizer is so nice, it is all ready to hang or set on your desk (which is what I did). There are felt pads on the bottom to keep it from scratching, and there are hangers on the back if you’d prefer to mount it on the wall.

This is NOT the organizer that holds pens as well, BUT I decided to add my markers to it anyway, since the compartments are so roomy. I love how the several sizes of ink pads I have all fit easily inside.

It’s like a rainbow, I love rainbows 🙂

We have a GIVEAWAY for you! You can win a 60$ gift certificate to OrganizeMore to pick out your OWN favorite organizer if you comment on this post! The winner will be announced on this site on January 9! 

Also, OrganizeMore has been generous enough to offer a COUPON CODE for Craft Storage Ideas readers! you can get 10% off your entire order from now through January 12. The code is: JAN15CSI. 

Be sure to tune in on Monday, as we will be announcing our fab Contributor Team for this term! 🙂 Happy New Year from CSI!

Silhouette fabric ink starter kit review by Hazel, and Show Us ***YOUR*** Happy Place-final week!

Happyplacegraphic

Welcome to Week 4 (the final week!) of our “Show Us Your Happy Place” promotion!

Once again it’s Hazel all the way from Sunny SA here to review the Silhouette fabric ink starter kit for you.

I used this kit:

And this step by step tutorial.

I really don’t have a lot of space in my Craft Closet and as I craft on the go most of the time, I decided to make myself a “WATERCOLOUR CRAFT BAG”. For the sewers who want to try it, hop over to my blog and I will share the inside info.

This is the front of my bag:

1

And the back:

2

And inside:

5

You can see that in the back pocket, I keep a notebook, roller towel, wet wipes and a small paint palette. Inside my bag there is a watercolor paper pad, a sketch pad, watercolour paint, ruler, pencil and paint brushes.  To tell you the truth – this is ALL the watercolour equipment  I own – now, all in one place!

Let’s go back to the Silhouette fabric ink. You will get everything you need in this kit. I did buy two more colours – pink and green as I’m NOT a monochrome person. I used this cut file from the Silhouette shop to make the stencil. Once done, I used only the letters to do my “art”. Remember to put a piece of cardboard inside your bag before painting. I placed the adhesive stencil letters on my bag and just got painting over them. After 20 minutes, remove the letters, and once your “artwork” is dry, iron on it to set the paint. DONE – easy as that!

The idea was to make a bag that looks as if it has been used for years by a {GREAT} artist. Here you can see how I’ve added “rough” details to age it a bit:

7

And now my bag hangs on the door of my Craft Closet:

8

I can even open it up to use the equipment to paint without taking it off the door handle:

4

And when we went camping last week, I took my bag with and could paint whenever / wherever I wanted to. Sorry about the quality of this pic but I only took my iPhone with on the camping trip.

9

There you have it – My “WATERCOLOUR CRAFT BAG”. You can customize a shop bought bag if you don’t like sewing but I really had fun making one to fit my needs.

I’m off to try my hand at something new. Have fun and see you soon.

 

Now, since you’ve read the review by our talented Hazel, you can link up YOUR happy place at the bottom of the post from now until Thursday afternoon (October 30). The winner for this week will receive an identical Silhouette Fabric Ink Starter Kit of their very own!

Our Rules:

 

  1. Winner must live in the USA or Canada, we are so sorry but international shipping is just too pricey. :( Hawaii and Alaska residents are welcome to enter.

 

  1. You may enter your room (on Mondays) one time per week and you may also enter the random giveaway (on Wednesdays) one time per week.

**Please note that comment moderation is enabled, so on the comment to win drawings you will not see it come up right away. If you are not sure your comment went through or not, please mention that in your second comment and we will publish accordingly.

 

  1. On room links, you must link to a specific post about your creative space and not the entire blog. If you don’t have a blog, you may link to a photo of yours on a photo sharing site, such as Flickr or to a photo of yours in a forum, such as Splicoaststampers. You may not share photos that belong to other artists.

 

  1. Not required but we would LOVE it if you’d share our graphic above on your blog or Pinterest boards!

 

  1. PLEASE make sure that either your comment or blog has an attached email address so we can contact you if you win. Comments without email addys may win, but if you don’t email us within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

**We will not use your email for any other reason than to contact you if you win. If you are not sure whether or not your WordPress profile has an attached email address, please add it to your comment.

  1. The winners of both weekly contests will be announced on Friday, October 31, 2014!

Another thing we want to mention is that your room doesn’t have to be a “traditional” craft room. We would love to see photography studios, art spaces, sewing rooms, and more! The thing we are MOST interested in seeing is creative & useful storage solutions in the rooms of real crafters and artists. The rooms do not have to be fancy or magazine worthy to catch our eye or win the contest. Please share your happy place, we would LOVE to see it! Also, please feel free to enter again this week if you entered in past weeks and didn’t win! We have LOVED all the spaces we’ve seen-so, don’t be shy! :)

Washi Tape Dispenser Review by Sharon, and Show Us ***YOUR*** Happy Place-Week 3!

Happyplacegraphic

Welcome to Week 3 of our “Show Us Your Happy Place” promotion!

Here is a great product review by Sharon. 🙂

Hi everyone, it’s Sharon here today to share with you my product review from Recollections.  I was sent one Washi Tape Dispenser set and a pack of Crafting Tape to try.

washi1

Firstly, I like the white finish of the dispenser. I have mostly white furniture in my craft room, and this will sit on my desk next to my white rotating carousel unit, so it fits in perfectly. You could very easily paint this to tie in with your colour scheme though if you wanted to. However, the thing that I like most about this unit is the fact that you can add to it. There are holes at the top and bottom so that you can slot another unit on top as your collection grows – and as they stack on top of each other, the unit wouldn’t take up any more desk space. I’ve made the mistake before of buying storage solutions that I’ve outgrown and had to totally replace with something different, so this is a huge plus for me.

001 (5)

 

I don’t actually have a huge collection of washi tape yet, (but I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m buying another one of these as I am seeing a lot of nice washi tape projects at the moment). Here’s how the unit looks now I’ve filled it up – as you can see, I can probably get another 3 or 4 rolls on before I need to get another unit.   I really love the bright, zingy colours of the Recollections washi tape and I already have plans to use some of this to liven up my planner pages.

I’m really impressed with this tape storage, and will definitely be adding to it as my collection of tapes grows.

Now, since you’ve read the review by our fantastic Sharon, you can link up YOUR happy place at the bottom of the post from now until Thursday afternoon (October 23). The winner for this week will receive an identical washi tape dispenser & crafting tape set of their very own!
