Some Fun Storage

I wanted to share a couple of fun little storage ideas that I am currently using in my studio. 

First, a sweet little tea set.  I am using the teapot to store my most used tools that I like to keep close at hand.  The creamer holds my tombow and adhesives.  One of the teacups holds little odds and ends.

I am using these inexpensive toile planters to hold my copics, but they could be used to hold markers, pens, tools, rulers etc.

Just ignore all the mess :-)

A Card and some Storage Space

A pretty little spring card that I CASE'd from Michelle Wooderson.  I loved the layout, so I used it to make my own version.


Paper:  Rustic White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), background paper, Soiree (Pink Paislee), polkadot paper, Mitten Wheather (Cosmo Cricket)

Stamps:  Button Boutique, Friendship Jar (sentiment), (Papertrey Ink)

Inks:  Sorbet (CTMH), Enchanted Evening (Papertrey Ink)

Dies:  Button card (Papertrey Ink)

Embellishments:  Fabric, Buttons and trim from stash

I also wanted to share a new storage unit that I purchased for my studio.  I am so happy to be able to better organize my stuff.

This is meant to be used to store CD's and DVD's, but since some of my stamp sets are in CD cases, it works awesome.

I can store all my Spellbinders dies since I transfer them to CD cases when I purchase them.

All of my Papertrey Ink dies, which I just leave in the little zip-lock bags they come in, plus the small stamp sets.

My Papertrey Ink stamps, which come with a CD case for storage.  (I did read however that PTI is going to start using DVD size storage for their stamps.)

Stampin' Up! stamps that come with a DVD case for storage fit in here great as well.

Though I have to put them on their side, all of my Unity Stamps will fit too.

Sadly, most all of my stamp sets are CTMH and they just won't fit, so I either will have to transfer them all to CD cases or just store them how I am currently doing it.

I can also put a lot of little odds and ends into these drawers.  I love being able to store so much stuff, and I still have plenty of empty drawers I can use in the future.

 Random paper items such as tags and envelopes.

 Lots of brads and lots of bling.

The one downside to getting my storage unit is that I had to move my vintage Costco cart out of my studio to make room.  I really loved using it to store my Big Shot and large dies, but I was able to find another use for it.

Thursday Layouts

I have a couple of layouts to share again today.

My first layout I am sharing is probably one of the most mixy matchy layouts I have ever made.  I just used up a lot of left-over papers and tried to color coordinate as best I could.  I felt so lucky to find the pictures that would incorporate well into the color scheme.

I used the CTMH Workshop on the Go as my inspiration for the next layout.  I did not have the Workshop kit, so I just made due with what I had on hand.  I used pages from an old atlas for the maps.  One of the ladies from my class suggested color copying atlas pages if you did not want to rip them out from the book.
