All Kinds of Stuff

You all know how our storage systems and the organization of our craft rooms, or studios as I prefer to call them are constantly evolving. Two things I added last fall are still working for me, even after I've added a lot more product and I wanted to share them with y'all. I looked at ink pad storage shelves that you buy for 50 to 60 dollars and I just hated to spend money on that rather than on ink pads and punches and stamps, ya know? So I made an ink pad storage system from foam core. I've been very pleased with it, especially since I now have all the Stampin' Up! colors of ink pads. If you think this is something you'd like to try, here is the link for directions: foam core storage.
 This is that whole section of my studio now with much more product and it still functions very well for me.
This was around 19 dollars at Lowes, it's from Closet Maid and was meant to be a shoe rack. I just tacked a piece of foam core on the back to keep the punches from falling out. Eventually, I'd like something that has shelves for each punch, but until I can rearrange space this will do. Uh... that rearranging space involves getting rid of a futon that we never use, but some husband I know just swears we might need some day.  {rolling eyes} lol!!

I just love these paper storage tabs. They were made by Cori Kozak with My Digital Studio. You can get them here.

The last thing I have to share is this sample board I made to show how well Stampin' Up! products coordinate with color and patterns. This is just for one set of designer series paper, but every set coordinates with card stocks, inks, ribbons and other different products. I thought this would be a great way to show new stampers how the products match so beautifully. What do you think?


  1. This is awesome! I really need to organize my punches better. Right now they are just in a total, and I always have to dig through them to find the one I want!

  2. Love the punch storage and the layout board idea. Thank you for sharing!
