Sugar Sugar Studio – My Flikr Fave

Welcome to Craft Storage Idea’s special feature…Flickr Craft Rooms!

This is Cicily the Pink Dalmatian Scrapper and I actually signed up for Flickr to work out this post. I have to say that I’m actually glad to be signed up. There’s nothing more frustrating then trying to follow a link on Pinterest and have it end at Flickr and not be able to see more. Problem solved!

Well on to the craft room that caught my attention, Sugar Sugar Studio.

If you could take spun cotton candy and frosting and turn it into a craft room you’d get Sugar Sugar. So aptly named. While lacking a full room shot I love all the bits and pieces that certanly make this room unique.


Check out this Sweet banner and inspiration board.


This cabinet has been with her for a while, but to coordinate it with the Sugar theme, she painted it white and Mod Podged patterned paper pieces to the back panel.



Every corner and shelf is a treat with all the unique storage containers like these old cupcake tins.



These jars are re-purposed garage sale finds that have been painted to look so sweet.


You can see the whole Sugar Sugar studio set here.

Hope you have a sweet tooth!



Vintage Storage: Re-purposing Found Items

Hi fellow crafters, it’s Cicily the Pink Dalmatian Scrapper with a post all about thinking outside the box. I’ve posted before how much I love shopping thru thrift stores and garage sales. Usually I’m looking at items trying to figure out if I can use them in my crafts or in my room for some type of storage! I wanted to share a few re-purposed items with you today.

The first is my new solution for displaying my cards. I posted recently on different solutions and finally just finished this with the help of my hubby! I found a this shutter at a resale shop, distress painted it and hung it on my wall. Now it’s a perfect display for the great cards I receive and even holds a few of my own creations!


This is also a recent addition. I purchased this old Coke Cola crate at a garage sale for my hubby’s man cave. He recently changed things around and I stole it for my room! The colors were perfect and it holds one of my latest addictions, Washi tape!


How cute is this? My mom found 2 of these vintage sewing cabinet drawers and now uses them to store her embellishments. This would also store acrylic stamp sets and possibly embossing folders.



I posted this recently but I love how it fits in with the re-purposing theme today! It is a record storage cabinet turned into 12×12 paper pad and scrapbook storage.

I would love to see what you have re-purposed! leave me a comment with the details or link!


Just One Tip: Using clothing hangers for craft storage

Hey all, Noelle here with a tip on some inexpensive storage, some that you might already have “hanging” around! 😉 I am not fortunate enough to have a closet in my space… not that it’s prevented me from hanging a curtain rod upside down under a shelf and making my own hanging bar, though! 🙂  But I bet many of you do have a closet, or maybe you’ve even turned a closet into your crafting space! Here are some ideas to incorporate clothing hangers as storage in your studio.

This has been one of my favorite storage solutions in my own studio. I use giant plastic zipper storage bags (2 ½ gallon sized) suspended from inexpensive pant hangers to store all my “themed” items. One is for Christmas, one is for Halloween, one for school, etc. I even have one bag for each of my kids keepsakes (things like report cards, certificates, and class photos) that I’d like to incorporate into their scrapbooks. It’s great, because, when I go to scrap, say a First Day of School page, I pull down the “School” bag, and rummage through to find my school papers, stickers, and embellishments. They are all right there together, I just love that!

While searching around for other cool hanger ideas, I came across these….

Use a vintage hanger as a frame! This would be a great way to showcase your kids art, or your most recent scrapbook page.

Use a scarf or shirt hanger to store ribbon lengths on.

You might remember in my “Ribbon Re-do” I used a multi-tiered pants hanger with arms that swing out to store ribbon spools.

If you are a jewelry maker, adding cup hooks to a wood hanger, could be a great way to store strings of beads, or lengths of chain.

Going back to the pant hanger idea, here’s a great way to store fabric so you can see it all without rummaging through a big pile.

How about using hangers to store tissue paper, so it doesn’t get crushed or torn?

And if you want to dress up some hangers to make them look pretty in your space, here’s a clever way to use some of that scrapbook paper or fabric on those free wire hangers from the dry cleaners. This could even make a fun gift!

Do you think you could use some more hanging storage? There are so many great closet organizational goodies out there that could be used for crafts, just think of all the possibilities! 🙂

Thanks for popping by Craft Storage Ideas! See you again very soon!
