Storage Solutions

Hi friends! Tomorrow is the February Pals Blog Hop! Join us as we tour around the Pals and see samples from the Occasions Mini and the Sale-A-Bration brochure. We hope to inspire you to make your own projects with the wide variety of products available now!

Today I thought I'd share how I store some of my Stampin' Up! supplies. I hope you get some ideas for your own stamping space. I have a whole room to "play" in, but it's too messy for me to share! Here are some of the spaces individually.

Here is how I store the larger plates for my Big Shot, as well as the new Framelits and Edglits. I bought this "letter holder" at one of those discount stores for about $10 and it works perfectly for the Letter Press Plates, Texturz Plates, embossing folders and cutting plates.

My Big Shot itself sits on top of this Longaberger Shelf unit. I use it right on the shelf. Underneath I have a fabric collapsable "box" where my dies stand up on their sides. Next to the dies is a square clear box which was originally a drawer divider. It holds my Sizzlits and Edgelits perfectly.

This idea is all over the internet for punches. I use the Ikea towel racks. They are mounted right onto the frame of my bulletin board, which I still use to tack items onto. I am lucky to have an Ikea locally. I hear that Ikea does not mail these rails for some reason. The rest of my punches (newer style) are on an over the door shoe organizer, and it is full.

My clear stamp sets are stored horizontally. They are inside of three "3L Capacity" Really Useful Boxes. Their lids are stored and used as "trays" when I take supplies to Workshops. Each of these clear boxes holds 18 CDs or 10 DVDs.

I store my 8-1/2" x 11" card stock upright by color collections in these magazine boxes. They are super sturdy and I got them in clearance from an office supply store.

My Stampin' Write Markers are each in their Color Collection families. I made this holder out of large Crystal Lite containers. They are stuck together using Stampin' Dimensionals, and tied together with a retired Stampin' Up! ribbon. This holder cost almost nothing and I recycled!

Cool ideas!! I did have to laugh about you saying the room had alot of messiness. I also have a whole room and when I make even one card, it becomes a room that looks like a tornado has went thru. i panic when i have guests coming as i then have to clean off the bed!!
