Hi friends! It’s nearly the start of summer, but I’m still stuck inside. Why you ask? Because we are dealing with an invasion of trillions of cicadas. They’re everywhere and SO loud and I can’t deal with bugs 😝 So while I’m stuck inside, I’ve been tackling my very messy “craft room” bit by bit.
Organizing is not my thing at all. I hope you can relate – I just want to create, not clean 😂. Thankfully, Scrapbook.com recently released a suite of storage solutions, and I’ve been testing them out to see how they work in my space. My “craft room” is really my dining room, so I am very limited on space. Every storage solution I use has to serve multiple purposes and easily fit into how I craft and manage my chaos. Like the Tall Sticker Organizer in the image above. I repurposed it to fit much of my slimline stuff – it’s great! Hop over to my IG to read the full story.
I also have the 6×8 Paper Pad Holder. I don’t have many 6×8 paper pads, but it fits my sketch notebook and planner perfectly. An idea that may work for you is to buy a few and organize all of your 6×6 paper pads. I love that the Craft Room Basics are bright white, very sturdy, and fit in seamlessly on my storage shelf. Whether a cardmaker like me or a scrapbooker/documenter, there is something in the Craft Room Basics line that will help you stay organized. Learn more and see a full list of all the Craft Room Basics on Scrapbook.com!
The other great storage products I’ve been loving are the Scrapbook.com storage envelopes! They are made of heavy duty, sturdy plastic, come in a variety of sizes, and can be used in so many ways. There are 3 sizes that I’ve incorporated into my space, and I really love them! See below for ways I’m using these storage envelopes and hopefully it will inspire you to try them too.
Large Letter Size Storage Envelopes – 9 x 11.5 in
These large envelopes are the perfect size to store my stencils, specialty papers (holo, glitter, acetate sheets), even die cutting supplies! I keep my cutting plates until I can’t use them anymore so I had new and worn plates loose on my shelf – not anymore! In the envelope, I also included my embossing pads.
This weekend, I will also try to tackle my scraps envelope. It is…rough to say the least lol. My plan is to organize the scraps by color, I’m thinking warms (red, orange, yellow, pink) and cools (blue, green, purple). I thought about one envelope per color, but that sounded so extra. Watch my IG for the before (pictured below) and after pic at some point.
Medium Storage Envelopes – 6 x 8.75 in
These envelopes can be used for many things, but I needed a better way to store my alpha dies that I frequently use – the SBC Bold Basic Alphabet dies. I took them out of the packaging and mounted them to a couple magnet sheets. They fit perfectly in my Tall Sticker Organizer.
Slimline Storage Envelopes – 4.5 x 9.5 in
These envelopes are perfect for my slimline dies and extra die cuts. They also fit perfectly in my Tall Sticker Organizer. You could also use these for slimline paper pads.
Hope this gave you a small glimpse into my craft space and inspired you to try organizing with some of these goodies from Scrapbook.com. If this helped you or if you have any questions, please let me know either in the comments below or on IG! Thank you so much for reading!!
