Tomorrow starts the new Get Organized challenge with Tiffany at The Scraprack! This will be my fifth time through...although I don't pay as much attention to each step as I used to do. I have made my way through most of the steps just a few areas to finish cataloging. If you don't know anything about Tiffany and The Scraprack, you really should check it out. There is also a very supportive Facebook Group, you can get almost any question answered immediately and all kinds of great storage ideas are suggested. I did acquire an actual Scraprack this year which I will highlight when I get my new room together.
For now this is what I have to show you.
I just recently purchased the Jinger Adams Over the door armoire at Tuesday Morning for only $99. I have it over the door in my new room and have not completely utilized it yet. I discovered the best use for the pouches when I was cataloging my stickles and paint pens, I temporarily put them here to have them upside down and decided this was a fantastic place for them! I had them in a plastic tub before which doesn't have them ready to use like this area! They are also very accessible once I start using this room. I am also happy to have another category cataloged.
I have still not figured out what I want to store in the bottom portions of both sides. Washi tape fits nicely on the left but I have way too much and most are organized with my rainbow embellishments. The black and whites and themes are in my We R Washi Keeper, I acquired the new stackable ones recently. It is not quite full since most of my washi is elsewhere, so this is the storage I am sticking with for washi. The paper tapes on top are just a little bit big for the dispenser and the containers in my armoire.
Here is my rainbow section. If you look close enough you will see there is a container for each color's paper and embellishments. Some colors need more room since I have boys those colors are blue and green. You can see the washi's and ribbons lined up in the front of the container for easy viewing.
I have a lot of punches! They are stored in a bin, divided into three drawers: basic shapes, those that match stamps and decorative shapes. These are still on my to-do catalog list.
This is how I store my embossing folders. I am re-purposing an old Creative Memories storage binder and inserts. The block storage that has 4 pockets on each side and therefore hold 8 embossing folders each.
Here's a page. I have one side of the folder hanging on the outside of the pocket for easier viewing. I have them organized by themes and shapes. These are also on my to-do cataloging list as well.
Another Tuesday Morning find! I was looking for something to store my Kiwi Lane Designer templates. I had them in an iris container but it was not good for finding what I wanted quickly.
I found these in the closet organization section. You can hang them anywhere!
I hope this gives you some ideas for organization of your crafty goodies and a point in the right direction if you are looking to get started on organization plan for the new year.
Thanks for stopping by today!
