Organization Methods

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!



  1. Love the idea of the belt spinner for Kiwi Lane templates. I've not found a good way to store them. I wish there was a Tuesday Morning nearby, but I'll check the other stores for some. Keep the great ideas coming. Hugs my friend.

    1. I bet some other stores have them...the cool things about this one (well I have 5 full) is that they swivel!

  2. Looking good! Love your organization!

  3. Good luck with your organizing. I am not that organized anymore........sigh
