Every crafter is looking for ways to store and organize all our awesome crafting supplies, especially those of us with small craft rooms such as myself. Most of us have gone to IKEA, Michael’s , re-purposed or DIY’d different storage solutions because it’s been hard to find exactly what it is that we want and will hold our supplies properly.
Stampin’ Up! has just released their own storage solutions that will store all those great Stampin’ Up! products we love, as well as many others. One of the many reasons why I love these is that you can customize it however you want, so you can store all your crafting supplies easily and in the way that makes the most sense for your space and supplies. Another reason I love it is that they’re white which means they’ll fit right into any craft space. Plus with a cute looking unit like this you’ll want this out where you and everyone else can see it, so you’ll end up using more of your crafting supplies than you did before.
These are the Ink pad & Marker Storage Trays and the Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays. The ink pad storage will hold any of the new Stampin’ Up! inkpads and has the perfect place for the coordinating Stampin’ Write Marker right next to it. In the case of both of these storage trays the markers are stored horizontally which is ideal when there is one tip on each end so as to avoid leaking. Plus with each tray being stackable but separate you don’t have to worry about whether or not you have enough to fill the unit (which I know for myself if I saw empty spaces would just be asking for trouble), you can simply stash away the trays you don’t need, until you do.
This is the Open Storage Cube which can hold your older Stampin’ Up! ink pads if you have been stamping for a while or it can also be used really for whatever you want… ribbon, acrylic blocks or other embellishments. It could also hold some smaller containers with embellishments, etc. in them. Just keep in mind these dimensions; 5″ x 5″ x 4-1/16″ (12.7 x 12.7 x 10.3 cm).
Then of course there are the Storage Topper and Storage Lid. When you reach the top of your unit the storage lid is a great way to give yourself almost like an extra shelf where you can store other bigger crafting tools/supplies or add a bit of your own style with a plant or figure or whatever strikes your fancy. With the storage topper there is the ability to store other supplies that are a little bigger or supplies where you want to be able to see all of them at the same time easily. In the picture at the top they’ve put re-inkers in the storage topper, but this could also be a good place for your embossing powder or glitter so you can see all the options without having to dig around.
If you have any questions I’m happy to help in any way that I can. I’m still in the midst of organizing my craft space/office, but these are definitely on my list as I’m putting it all together. As I get my space set up I’ll show pictures. In the meantime I’d love to see your craft space! Send me pics at email@example.com
