Storage & Organization: Ideas from You
I use two Black & Decker Nuts & Bolts containers to store all my small embellishments. Each container has 4 clear tackle box like boxes with dividers. I place my eyelets, brads, snaps, staples, etc in the individual compartments. It works great for me!
|Ok, so I have to store all of my scrapbooking supplies on a budget...so, for a simple way for me to store some of my little odds and ends and pictures that I am going to use soon. I use the plastic bags that my baby's onesies and pajamas come in and hang them from a wire rack I have. They have snaps so they are easy to close and are within arms reach. I love keeping my rub-ons in these because they aren't being pushed or rubbed by anything else. I feel like I'm helping the enviroment also because I am not throwing these plastic things away.|

I used an old shelve that I had that my father had made me, only it didn't have a bottom shelve so my husband was going to cut the sides that that it was flat on the bottom but I didn't let him. I bought a cafe' curtain rod and used it to hold my ribbons.
I also have a jewlery box that my mother bought for me at a tag sale for a dollar and I turned it into a sewing box.

| Hi! I am addicted to stamping, and have TONS of wood-mounted, clear, and cling stamps! To keep track of what I have, I keep a 3-ring binder with page-protectors as my own "personal catalog!" When I get a new stamp set, I determine what catagory I'd put it in, then stamp all the images on plain copy paper and place the new images in the next available space in my binder for that category. All categories are organized alphabetically, so it's easy to locate what I need for a particular project. I also note the name of the stamp set, how many stamps are in the set, and the brand. I also then keep an Excel file with this same information and keep a list sorted by company then name of the set (to keep track when I'm ordering, so I don't duplicate), as well as a list sorted by category. I keep copies of these updated lists in the binder for easy reference. When I start a project, I simply browse my own "personal catalog" to find the stamp image that will work the best and locate it in my cabinet, which has all the stamps/sets arranged by category also! :-) Sometimes it's just fun to look through it to remind myself of all the great stamps I have at my disposal! ;-) |

| Hi. I found these great storage units at Michaels. I used my 50% off coupons (wait until they come out) so they were fairly inexpensive. What a difference they make in my craft room! I can now display (some) of my stamps, my embellishments, my ribbon, etc. And, the good part is that it's all of of my work area! I've also purchased the paper sorters (with 50% coupons) from JoAnns to hold my paper. I LOVE IT! I can reach anything at anytime. |

I bought this ribbon rack...for 24.99 from a local crafter. I love it! It holds tons of ribbon, is totally customizable, and best of all portable. I can take it to my work space, put it away when I'm done or throw it in my bag to go to a crop. It also has a nifty little bonus, he put a magnet on the base to hold the common pins you may use to keep your ribbon from unraveling. Pretty darn clever if you ask me! He is now selling them on Ebay... The name of his business is Creative Visions. FYI :) If you need more info...email me, I grabbed his business card!

I want to thank the poster for the Michaels idea! I rec'd gifts cards from there for Mothers Day and bought several of the items. With the 40% off coupon, I was able to stretch my gift cards. Also, when they gave me my receipt, another 40% coupon was printed off. Fortunatly, I live close to the store, so I can go every day, if I want and use many coupons! My daughters also save theirs from the newspaper and give to me. My husband made a large closet in a bedroom for my "craft room" , so these are ideal for a small space. FYI: You can also use JoAnns coupons at Michaels and visa versa. I also just saw Target has, I believe it is CRAFTMATE storage solutions. I too, use the plastic bags, curtains come in, for my clear stamps. The little hangers are ideal to hang on the (wire) rod in the closet!

http://theoriginalscrapbox.com has a really cool EZ View Desk. They also offer an option to just buy the desk top for those of us on a budget. The entire desk top is clear so you can see what's in your drawers.
They also have a cool Ribbon Box that's under $20 and it holds 27 spools of ribbon.
