Contributor Craft Room Tour: Suzanne Webster-Lowrie

Hello, it’s Suzanne here today from Scrapbookingsue.com. I am so excited for today’s post, as I get a chance to share my very own craft room with all of you! I will probably always consider it a “work in progress,” as I add and delete new items, and try to match everything a bit better. However, it is well organized, functional, and utilizes a system that works for me! Also, I am a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant, which is yet another reason why my space has to be so functional, because it is not only for fun, but for business as well!

Since my blog has a TON of pictures showing my craft room (My Craft Space: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), I have selected a sampling of pictures for this post. Please feel free to visit my blog for a more in-depth look at my room!

This is my main desk area, where I do most of my scrapbooking, stamping, painting, etc. Within arms reach, I keep my basic supplies (scissors, glue, distressing tools, etc.), stamp pads and cleaners, markers and colored pencils, ready-made cards and envelope bases in white and off-white, ribbon, and some basic embellishments.

Directly opposite the main desk is what I like to call my “Cricut desk.” This desk holds an Expression 2 Cricut machine, a jar full of tools, a laptop computer, and a Canon Selphy picture printer. Oh yeah, there is a cute owl clipboard that I made as well… just for a pop of color for the picture!

Craft room tour 14a.jpg

Next to one of the windows, I have an IKEA 8-cubby storage unit. I have so many different types of things stored here, it would be hard to list them all. But perhaps most notable, the pink baskets on the top shelf hold some of my retired stamp sets. On top of the unit is my small ribbon storage. I wind the end pieces of ribbon around jumbo craft sticks.

Craft room tour 6a.jpg

I picked up these long pink baskets about 8 years or so ago at Walmart for $5 each. These baskets are the perfect size to hold my retired stamp sets that I plan to keep.

Craft room tour 36a.jpg

Above the storage unit, I keep this frame of cards. I made the frame myself by purchasing an old picture from Goodwill that had an ugly, but sturdy frame, and then re-purposing the frame with paint and crackle-medium. Very rustic!

The cards inside are switched out seasonally. Right now they feature fall / Thanksgiving cards, Christmas / Holiday cards, and the November Stamp of the Month.

Craft room tour 33a.jpg

On the other side of the window is the pegboard that I created earlier this year. As you can see, the board holds my decorative scissors, embellishments, a few tools, Mod Podge, and my embossing gun.

Craft room tour 4a.jpg

The final wall houses my very large IKEA 25-cubby storage unit, as well as my home-made paper rack. This large unit holds the majority of my scrapbooking supplies. All of my paper kits, pages in progress, albums in progress, vintage catalogs and retired paper colors have a home here. The paper rack holds all of my current CTMH papers, as well as my paper trimmers, craft mat, and score board on top.

Most of the storage in the middle section is from the Dollar Store. Trendy buckets, baskets and clear storage containers are both easy to find, and affordable. To see inside some of my storage containers, make sure to go to Part 3 of the craft room tour on my blog. The green and blue boxes are from Pioneer. I purchased them white and then painted them the colors in the my craft room to match.

Craft room tour 15a.jpg

Here is my entire collection of wooden rubber stamps! I’m sure that many of you have WAY more than this, but less than a year after I joined CTMH, they came out with the clear, unmounted stamps; therefore, I never really had time to amass a large quantity of rubber stamps.

Craft room tour 24a.jpg

And finally, here are my home-made sponge daubers. Although the quality is NOT great (they tend to tear and shred with continued use), I wanted so many of them that they have saved me a great deal of money over purchasing the name brand daubers. I use floral foam to hold them in place inside their containers.

Thank you so much for touring my craft room with me today! If you are interested in seeing a lot more pictures of this space, peeking inside some more of my boxes, or learning about my Craft Inventory Binder, then please join me over at my blog for Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of the tour!

Just 1 Tip: Use a louver/vent cover to store your stamps

Hallo, Hazel all the way from Sunny SA here today to share a great tip.  I’ve got all my wooden stamps in drawers underneath my dining room table.  Why?? Because I like to see what I have and these were the only large, flat drawers in my whole house so I used what I had.  Problem is:  the drawers are HUGE – I can’t take them out and a dining room table doesn’t look very inviting when it’s drawers are hanging open.

What do you think about this?

LINK

An ordinary wall louver/vent cover that keeps air flowing through your home.

And now it’s a stamp rack:

LINK

My local hardware store sells them in plastic and metal.  I actually love the white option but if you want it to fit in with your custom color scheme – just paint it.  Pretty great idea don’t you think?

My idea comes from Better Homes and Gardens and the series is called “New Craft Storage Ideas Using Unexpected Items”.  If you want to see the rest of their ideas, just click here.

Thanks for looking at alternative craft storage options with me today.  Please leave a comment if you have an idea of your own ……………… I’d love to see and hear what you do.

Until we meet again ……………………and remember, ” Keep calm and store your stash!”

California Art Girl {Richele Christensen} and Blog Hop Day Two

Let’s give a very warm welcome to Richele Christensen!  I love her craft room!  And you will too!  But first – just a reminder about our blog hop!  Check out all of the details here!  And make sure you read all today’s entire post – because we have a giveaway from our blog hop sponsor OrganizeMore!  Here’s a little sneak peek!

Prize 1 - OrganizeMOre

But first, here’s Richele!

_______________________

RicheleChristensen

I’m a California girl and currently live in the Sacramento area. I have an amazing husband Del and we have two wonderful children. My son KC and his wife Amanda have three amazing kids and that makes me a Grandma. It’s the best! My daughter Ashley and husband Kirk are  busy with their carers.

Ever since I was a little girl I have had a love for art, sewing and crafting. Working in the paper craft industry since 2001 has lead me on an unforgettable journey. I currently work with Tim Holtz as his project manager, teaching workshops and blogging.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m very fortunate to have a large space in our home for my studio, it has two windows that bring in lots of natural light which I love. When I set up my studio it was important to me that things were easy to find and being organized helps. Also if things are handy I tend to use them more. RicheleChristensen_Studio1

The stamp wall in my studio is my favorite, they’re custom made shelves my dad and son made. (You can find similar shelves at Ikea). They hold my wood stamps, inks, paints and products I use frequently. The modular cabinets below the shelves are from Michael’s. The drawers come in many configurations so they work for almost everything like tags, dies, stamps, and other miscellaneous things.

The tools on my work table are in a silverware caddy I picked up at a kitchen organizing store. You just never know when you’ll see something that will be perfect for your studio, like this antique stamp holder is prefect for all my craft tools.

This magnetic board hangs on the side of my cabinet and holds all my Movers ‘n Shapers dies and is available from Ikea.

1. What kind of budget did you have when organizing your space?

I didn’t really have a budget but I tried to be economical. Most of the furniture has come from Ikea, Michael’s and Home Depot. My room has evolved as time has gone by. I recently moved into a larger space in my home and because my space is organized with modular elements they fit right into my new space perfectly.

RicheleChristensen_Studio11

2. What was your greatest challenge?

 The biggest challenge in my studio was having things I use all the time handy. Since I use my Distress Inks, Paints and Stains all the time I store them on a shelf right behind my work area.

RicheleChristensen_Studio2

3. Are you a “organize it once” kind of girl, or are your storage solutions constantly evolving?

I love to organize my “stuff”. I think you can always improve upon it. My favorite cabinet is the Alex from Ikea. It hold a ton of stuff.

4. What is one thing you’d like to improve about your storage/organization?
That’s a tough one. Im pretty happy with my space but I think having pull outs in my large cabinets would make it easier to find things.

New Stamp/Die Storage

Hi there all you crafty storage mavens! It’s Noelle popping in today with a peek at my new unmounted stamp and die storage. I am so excited to share this with you! I have missed you, I am starting a new job and cutting back on all my commitments right now. Dear Rebecca has asked me to stay on as Contributor, but I am only posting when I can (Contributor-At-Large?). Thanks Rebecca! I love posting here, so I’m glad to still be able to pop by occasionally. :)

P1200921-imp

Last week, I was chatting with some other designers about keeping it fresh and someone brought up that reorganizing their stash helps them clean out the old gear, see what they have, and inspire that creative “zip” once more. What say you, dear readers? Do you feel that some reorganizing can light up that creative fire under you? I have been struggling with some “stamper’s block” over these last weeks. Just SO much going on, and when I have time to stamp I have no idea where to start. I know that in the past, reorganizing and cleaning has helped me a lot! So, I decided to tackle a project that’s been on my mind for a while now.

I had read Jennifer McGuire’s article on how she stores her stamps. I decided to look around for a similar method for mine. I didn’t want a letter sized binder or something that when open was going to take up a lot of precious “flat space real estate” on my small desk. I have so many different kinds of stamps; acrylic, photopolymer, and cling rubber. All are from dozens of different manufacturers. Plus, the sets I have range from a tiny single stamp to large sets that might include 30 or more stamps on a 10” sheet. So, I figured that mine might not be quite as pretty as her photos show. I knew I would definitely need different sizes of pockets but still loved the idea of being able to quickly flip through them.

P1200922-imp

I ended up going with some CD sleeves from Office Max that are similar to these (see photo below for the exact ones I used) for the smaller ones which covered the bulk of my stamps. They don’t have the ones I bought online, however. These sleeves have a clear plastic CD pocket on either side of the sleeve, and some white fabric-y stuff in the middle. They were 10.99 for a pack of 50. At 21 cents a piece, that’s a pretty affordable solution! I ended up buying 4 packs of these with some leftover sleeves for the future. You may not have the stamp multiplying problem that I have and may not need nearly as many! ;) I’m grateful for the crafty design work I do, because it means I get a lot of fun free stuff in the mail.

P1200920-imp

Since I did this, I’ve seen the CD sleeves even cheaper (I believe the link I sent you to shows them cheaper), but it was a side load sleeve, meaning that seam that I ended up using for the labels would be on the side of the sleeve, not the top if you stored them so the pocket opening is at the top. If I had started out that way I wouldn’t have minded, but since I was already 70% of the way done when I had to buy more, I decided to stick with the original ones I had already purchased.

For the medium and large pockets I got these plastic pockets from Office Depot in 4×6 and 5×8 sizes. I have heard great things about the Avery Elle Stamp Storage Pockets too. But I had a lot of sets that were 8” tall, and I did not want them to stick out the top of the pockets. The ones I got are a bit more expensive that the Avery Elle ones, coming in at about 49-59 cents a piece. But I like that I can pick them up at the local office store, and they are really nice heavy plastic, with a notch at the top so you can easily pull the set out. I think I ended up buying 40 4×6 pockets and 60 5×8 pockets, which added up quickly. Can you say cha-ching? ;) Throw in 4 rolls of label tape for my label maker, and this was not the cheapest project. But I love it SO much, that the cost was worth it for me. You could also do something like this buying a pack or 2 of pockets every week until you had as many as you needed to keep your budget on track.

One thing I decided to change from my former storage solutions was that I opted to store the stamps and dies together this time. I used to keep stamps and dies separate, with stamps in their original packaging in these metal tubs (see 1st pic below). The small ones always fell to the bottom, and inevitably the cello packaging would tear. Some of my dies were on magnetic cards, but the cards would tangle, and the small dies tended to fall off. In many cases, I ended up slipping the magnetic card right into one of these pockets, so my cards are still valuable.

P1200923-imp

 

P1200928-imp

A few of the sets were too large even for the 5×8 pockets. A few sets got cut in half and fit into the pocket anyway as to keep with their original manufacturers . The rest of the random large sets went into my Tim Holtz Unmounted Stamp Binder. They fit perfectly!

P1200924-imp

 

P1200925-imp

I now have everything arranged by manufacturer, so all my Paper Smooches dies are with my Paper Smooches stamps, etc. If there was a coordinating die and stamp set, I included the die in the sleeve with the stamps. On these CD sleeves, I actually could use the pocket on the backside of the sleeve, but on the larger sets with dies, I just dropped the die/s in with the set. I have these arranged mostly alphabetically by manufacturer. But, The Cat’s Pajamas product took up two entire baskets! Since I design for them, I have almost everything they make, so they get their own 2 baskets.

P1200929-imp

I used my own shorthand to label the manufacturer, so “TCP” is The Cat’s Pajamas, “PS” is Paper Smooches and so on. I know what each one is, so it’s all good. I labeled each one with the manufacturer shorthand and the set or die’s name. This way when I’m linking readers up to specific stamp sets, I have the right set name to find the link quickly.

One way to save space and money on this project is to put two single stamps or mini sets into one pocket together. I utilized this a lot. If there was a contact card, I sometimes put the card in the front pocket and the stamps in the back pocket.

P1200927-imp

One place I saved a little coin was on the containers. I found these blue baskets at my local Dollar Tree, so they were only a buck each. I can honestly not believe I got all these stamps and dies into 6 baskets. 238 stamp sets, plus dozens of dies. It saved a lot of space in my studio and each basket takes up only a small amount of room on my desk when I pull them out to flip through. The baskets also work nicely for my 6″ paper pads, so I used the two I had leftover for that. They also fit perfectly on my shelves. that was a happy accident, since I didn’t measure. But I love that they don’t overhang the shelf. :) After much debate, I kept my Stampin’ Up stamps in their original containers, as I wasn’t interested in “un-mounting” the wood stamps. Their cling stamps come in nice cases already. I may eventually move the Stampin’ Up! cling stamps to this kind of storage, I am still on the fence about that.

P1200926-imp

All in all, I am LOVING this, I can see so much better what I have, and it’s much easier to find what I’m looking for. I also love having things arranged by manufacturer, and keeping dies with coordinating stamps in the same pocket has been wonderful. I hope this helps you “stash your stash” a bit better today.

Hugs!

Thirty-One Bags Craft Storage (Stamping with a Dream)

Hi all, it’s Noelle stopping in today with a few photos from my friend Kelli’s craft room. On thing that I found particularly intriguing about her room is that she used a lot of bags and containers from thirty-one. Now, I’m not trying to sell you on thirty-one bags, I don’t even own one myself. But I have heard from a few different crafters how sturdy their bags and containers are. So I thought it might be worth showing you these photos.They have a lot of fun prints on their bags, and do big clearance sales sometimes.

IMG_8829

Here’s a pic of some of Kelli’s stamps in these containers. How easy would it be to move one to your dining room table to work elsewhere in your house?

IMG_8828

And some card stock in larger thirty-one bags….

IMG_8831

This shelf looks very neat even though Kelli has a variety of products stashed in the containers. The opaque fabric keeps everything looking nice and clean.

IMG_8817

 I also like her use of Ribbon Carousels for her twine and ribbon storage.

IMG_8816  Kelli doesn’t have a craft room post on her blog just yet, but be sure to stop by and see her pretty cards if you can.

 Thanks for stopping in!

Craft Studio Tour ~ In My Creative Opinion

Hi CSI friends, Lisa here today with a craft room tour for your viewing pleasure! There are many, many craft rooms out there with a lot of bells and whistles and then there are craft rooms that are slimmed down, perfectly organized and serve their purpose to the max. That’s just what I have to share with you today.

My very dear friend Tracey McNeely of In My Creative Opinion shared her craft room on her blog last month. I have a glimpse of it to share with you today. Feel free to visit her blog for the entire tour!

IMG_2700

There is definitely something to be said about neutral tones in a work environment with lots of natural daylight streaming in! Tracey has fitted her craft room with products from Ikea including “Galant” birch veneer table tops and bookcases along with “Alex” drawers.

IMG_2720

Separate work stations for die cutting, paper trimming and coloring make creating easier.

IMG_2713

Drawers with plentiful room for organizing your stash is a must. I love seeing the rolls of felt all lined up!

IMG_2707

Isn’t this wall of bookshelves wonderful? Neatly organized and pleasing to the eye make for an uncluttered craft space. The white storage that’s used in various places lets your eye flow easily over the unit.

You’ll find individual storage and organizational tips for paper, dies, stamps and more on Tracey’s blog. Stop by to say hello, you’ll enjoy your visit!

Product Highlight: EZMount Stamp Storage Panels and EZBinders

I am a huge fan of binders for organizing. I talk about them all the time over at my blog. They work well for papers, but also for storage as well. If you can’t access your supplies easily and be able to find what you are looking for, you will probably not use much of what you have. Also, you may end up buying duplicates.

For today’s product highlight I am sharing a product  I think will help many of us that use stamps. It utilizes one of my favorite tools for organizing – the binder. Crafter’s Companion makes these great EZMount Stamp Storage Panels that can be used in one of their EZBinders.

These binders are really great in that they are fully enclosed. They have a locking clip on the side to keep them shut tight, so none of your items fall out. They are made of plastic so they protect your stamps (or metal die-cuts) from the elements. Who wants to dust all those little stamps?

The EZMount Stamp Storage panels will allow you to mount any temporary mount stamps. You can adhere stamps to both the front and back. You could sort your stamps by theme, holiday, or even designer.

The trend in stamps seems to be moving away from wooden mounted stamps to acrylic stamps. I love these because they are clear so you can see exactly where you stamp. They are also perfect because they do not take up much space. And now you have an easy solution for storing and organizing your stamps.

Do you use acrylic stamps and if so, how do you organize them?

Product Review: Tim Holtz Unmounted Stamp Binder and Unmounted Stamp Refill Pockets

P1190415

Hi there, all you crafty storage mavens! It’s Noelle today with a great product review.  This is a review of the Tim Holtz idea-ology Unmounted Stamp Binder and coordinating refill pocket pages. I met the folks at Advantus Corp. when I was at CHA. They were generous enough to send me 4 products to review, including these.

I currently keep all my clear and cling rubber stamps in these galvanized bins. I try to sort by manufacturer. Since I work for manufacturers (creating projects with their products) keeping them sorted by manufacturer works well for me. However, I know many crafters prefer to sort their stamps by theme (holiday, sentiments, animals, etc.) You could easily use this product to sort your stamps whichever way you prefer. There is a luggage tag on each binder, with a clear window so you could label each binder however you wish.

P1160036

 The first thing I noticed, upon taking this out of the box, is how attractive it is. Tim Holtz products are always known for looking cool, and this binder is no exception. It has the look of embossed or hand-tooled leather.  It’s not a leather cover, but for the price point (34.95 USD) that’s not terribly surprising.  I have a lot of vintage items in my studio, and it’s a look I personally love, so the rich, antique look to this binder really appeals to me.

P1190416

 It has a zipper that extends beyond the binding and snaps down for when not in use. The great thing about this, as that when you have the binder open, it lays completely flat for flipping through your stamp sets. As a designer, I appreciate that small detail, because it could really make or break using a product like this one.

P1190411

 The inside of the front cover has a mesh pocket. I believe it’s intended for stamping blocks, and mine fit in there nicely. If you had more than one binder,you could fit more pages in the books that weren’t storing your blocks.  Also, you could potentially use the pocket for storing other small tools, ink pads, or embellishments.

P1190403

The binder comes with three pages. The pages are clear, with a pocket, for storing the contact sheet from the stamps in. The refill page pack has 5 pages in it, and retails for 2.99.

P1190417

 If you have a lot of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamps already, it’s important to note that you won’t need the refill pages, as the clear plastic cards they come on are already hole punched and fit perfectly in this binder.

P1190405

P1190404

 I decided to store my Verve stamps in here. I chose them to start with as I have so many small, single (“Plain Jane”) Verve stamps, and they tend to get lost in the bottom of my galvanized bins. Here’s a page storing 6 single stamps. I used a small bit of adhesive to stick the contact cards to the inside of the pocket, so they wouldn’t slide around.  Here’s the front of the page:

P1190406

 And the back of the page:

P1190407

 Here’s a larger set of Verve stamps, the contact sheet in this one was clear, and it fit perfectly inside the pocket. I did opt to put the clear acetate sheet that normally covers the back of the stamps on the back of them to keep them from drying out and cracking in my dry Colorado climate. I don’t know how big of a concern that is, but I had the sheets and figured why not be on the safe side? With cling rubber stamps, you don’t need to worry about that. They are a bit heartier. And to be honest, if the binder is kept zipped up most of the time, it’s a actually a great place to keep clear stamps, because light is the reason that acrylic and photopolymer stamps tend to yellow over time.

P1190408

P1190409

 Here’s a pic of some Stampendous cling rubber stamps. These did not come with a contact card, so I just stuck them to the back of the page. Because the pages are clear, it’s easy to see the design right through the page.

P1190410

 I was really surprised at how many stamps fit in this little binder. I fit 8 stamp sets, and 15 single stamps on the 8 pages. I added the one Tim Holtz set, plus my blocks, and I still have room for at least a couple more pages. I’m pretty sure that having several of these would save me quite a bit of space in my tiny studio.

One more thing to note about this product is that it is not a huge binder. For me, this is actually a selling feature, since I have small, fixed shelves in my studio. This binder actually fits on them nicely! For your reference, the binder in 9 ¾” tall and 10” deep. The pages are 7” wide and 8 ½” tall. This is really only an issue if you have some large sets that won’t fit easily in the pockets.

P1190412

 Thanks again to Kathleen at Advantus Corp. for sending me these to review. A final note would be that you could use these to store other flat items, such as small sticker sheets and rub-ons. The fact that the pages are pockets offers many other uses than only stamps.

P1190415

 Hope you have a craftabulous day! :)

Product Review: {Stamp-n-Storage}

A few weeks ago, Rebecca approached me about reviewing some products from our new sponsor, Stamp-n-Storage. After checking out their website, my answer wasn’t just yes, it was HECK YES!!!

First of all, let me say a HUGE thank you to Rebecca for this opportunity. Secondly, I’d like to say thanks to the good people at Stamp-n-Storage for creating such awesome products, and for sending me two of them to check out “in person.” Once you visit the Stamp-n-Storage website, you will be able to tell how difficult it was to make a decision as to which two to pick! I mean, they have a storage solution for virtually every craft product you can think of! In the end, I decided to go with the Stickles Desk and the Distress Ink Pad Holder.

First impressions are everything, and I just have to say how well these products are made. Even though the wood is unfinished, you could easily use them “as is.” The finish is smooth like butter, and I will soon be painting mine white, to match my other storage containers, most of those being the Recollections brand from Michael’s.  Not only are the Stamp-n-Storage products better quality than those, in terms of workmanship and materials used, they also come fully assembled!

There is so much to love about the Stickles Desk. Well-made, and well-designed, being able to store up to 32 half-ounce bottles (’cause you know you have to have ALL the colors!!!), and the added convenience of being able to remove the separate drawers – not to mention they are stored upside down, ready to use – are just a few of the reasons why I chose this product. Taking up a mere 8.1″ wide by 4.75″ deep and 13.25″ tall, this little “desk” is an awesome, welcome addition to my craft room. Be sure to check out the Stickles Drawer Storage here.

My second selection was the Distress Ink Pad Holder. Even though they make awesome products for full-size stamp pads (check those out here), I only have a handful of those. My collection of the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads is a bit more impressive (ha ha), and having storage for them (instead of being stuffed away in a drawer), was something I knew I would like. This piece measures 14.75″ wide by 13.25″ tall and only 3.13″ deep, making it the perfect companion for my Stickles holder!

For those of you that do have a lot of ink pads, pens and refills, here is a little eye candy for you:

Trust me, friends. You HAVE to check out Stamp-n-Storage products for yourself. Awesome products, amazing workmanship – what’s not to love?? And be sure to let us know if you already own any of their products, or if you end up getting any!
