Craft Room Storage Tips with Aly

Good Monday morning We R friends! It’s Aly here, and welcome to Storage and Organization Week. This week our design team will be sharing a peek into their craft rooms along with some of their favorite tips for keeping their craft supplies stored, organized and looking great!

I’m up first this week and I’m excited to share a little corner of my newly renovated craft room, along with some ideas about how I organize and store some of my supplies.

Craft Room Storage Tips by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

The supplies that I use most often are stored on my Crate Paper Wire Storage Grid or in my Kallax shelving unit which are both right next to my work space. That way the things I reach for regularly are within arm’s reach!

I keep my small punch boards in the Punch Board Storage which conveniently sits on top of the Stackable Paper Trays where I keep my rainbow colored cardstock. (Can you tell what my favorite colors are?) I love that they fit perfectly into my Kallax shelving, and that they stack on top of each other saving precious craft room real estate.

The supplies I don’t use as frequently are stored on shelves in a double closet in my craft room. My larger punch boards, trimmers, Happy Jig, and score boards are stored in some paper storage cubicles in that closet.

In this cubicle I store my ongoing memory keeping projects. I also store papers and embellishments that I’m using for those on going projects right next to them so it’s easy to pull everything out when I have time to catch up on them. I’ve got my Heidi Swapp Memory Planners in the Crate Paper Desktop Paper Storage and planner papers and accessories in the Medium Craft Storage Case right next to it. Then the current scrapbook I’m working on is also in this cubicle along with the paper collections and embellishments I’m using for it next to the album in the Expandle Paper Storage.

I store my go-to tools and loose embellishments in these cubicles right next to my work space. I pull them out so I have easy access, and I open up my Bloom Storage when crafting so I can see all the goodies I get to choose from. I love that my Crafter’s Tote has a handle and PLENTY of pockets and storage space for my cutting tools, adhesive, and power tools.

I can’t live without my Washi Tape Dispenser! I love that you can stack two carousels using the Stackable Post because I’ve got a serious washi tape hoarding problem. (I probably need a few more of these, LOL!)

I keep scrapbook pages that I finish or am working on at a crop or retreat in this 12×12 Craft and Photo Storage Case. Each one is in its own page protector and stays there until I add them into my scrapbook album.

I love to keep a DCWV Letterboard and a Crate Paper Magnet Studio board in my craft room that I update every month or so with seasonal or inspiring quotes. I keep all my letterboard and magnet studio letters, words, and embellishments in the Washi Tape Storage Case. This bin is like Marry Poppins’ magic carpet bag. You can fit so much in it! Check out the removeable trays with two more removeable trays underneath. Storage for days friends!

Storage and Organization Solutions with Soraya

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today to share some storage solutions, and I’m very excited to show you my little Happy Jig corner! I used a tray for lemonade glasses as small shelves to store and display all my colorful wire coils. It doesn’t take too much room in my studio and it’s very handy when it comes to chose a color wire.

On the top of these mini shelves I placed 3 pencil holders to store the new Crafter’s Essential tools. One for the basic rulers, one for the tools and the last one for thin wires that I already had in my stash. I love seeing all of my tools in one glance!

How cute are all the mini punch boards? I couldn’t keep them in a basket so I decided to decorate my wall with the smallest ones! I hacked a kitchen lids storage unit I found at Ikea and simply hung it in my studio. Handy and beautiful at the same time!

Last but not least, here is my jewelry station in the gorgeous Bloom Storage! I placed all the tiny elements I need to keep handy inside. The rest of my stash is stored in other boxes. Bloom is so versatile, I could use it in the bathroom vanity, in my bedroom to store my favorite jewelry, in the kitchen for my birthday supplies (balloons, candles…) I definitely love this storage!

Storage Ideas with Kimberly

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly Crawford here for some storage and organization ideas to share. There are so many amazing We R Memory Keepers tools available, we definitely need great storage solutions, because we have to have all the tools!

Craft Room Storage ideas by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Hands down, my favorite new storage unit is the We R Memory Keepers Bloom! Not only is it adorable, but it also holds all those small doo-dads that never seem to have a good home. Ephemera fits in the bottom trays. Small flowers, buttons, 3D embellishments, and erasers fit in the middle trays. I even found that my Craft Knife and Swivel Craft Knife refill blades fit perfectly in a tray. Simply twist the top of the unit closed and this storage fits nicely on any desk top.

I did want to mention the mat underneath the Bloom. It is the mat from the We R Memory Keepers Template Studio. The Template Studio is fantastic, but so is this cutting mat! It is a wonderful surface that I leave on my desktop all the time. I often get asked what mat I use when filming my video tutorials-the grey color is perfect and keeps my color balance in check while filming. Form, function, and looking good!

Craft Room Storage ideas by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

For a majority of my tools, I love baskets. You can find cute baskets just about anywhere, which makes it easy to keep your tools in one place. In this basket, I keep my punches, but if you look closer, you can also see that I store the directions with the tools. Keeping the instruction booklets in one place makes my life so much easier. We R Memory Keepers instructions are well-written and contain so many helpful tips and measurements, I do not want to misplace even one.

Craft Room Storage ideas by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

On the top, I keep my punch boards. Again, keeping the tools that work together in one place makes creating easier.

More basket storage. This is especially useful when the tool comes with so many wonderful accessories, like the Happy Jig! Look at all the wonderful colors of wire, including wire that looks like baker’s twine! When I want to use my tools, having them all in one place allows me to get creating, not digging through boxes and piles.

Craft Room Storage ideas by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Finally, having my tools close at hand is important. I keep a couple of coffee mugs right next to me on my desk. All the new Crafter’s Essentials tools fit nicely. Plus, having this mug from someone special, always makes me smile.

What is your favorite organizational piece in your crafting space?

 

 

Craft Room Storage with Eva

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing a few ideas on how to keep all your supplies in order.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

One of the the items I use the most on my scraproom is my cart. Inside I keep all my tools and my punches. I love that the color matches exactly all my We R tools! Everything looks organized.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

On the top of my cart I keep all my new USB tools, Layer Guides, Ribbon Cutter, Tear Guides and others. I also keep my Happy Jig on hand and use a bin to keep all the wires and twines next to it. I love to put bins inside my cart because it helps me organize my space and have all my supplies together.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

On the other two tiers I keep all my punches and my planner tools like my Planner Punch Board, my Hole Reinforcer and my Staple Board.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To organize my embellishments I use wire bins where I store all my die cuts and stickers. In general, I keep the original packaging and when the package was only a few embellishments left, I organize the remaining embellishments by color on plastic bins. I keep all my Design Team embellishments on a hanging unit as I only use those for DT assignments.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

On top of my desk I always keep a fruit stand to leave small embellishments I am using on my current project and little things I find while I am tidying up my scraproom. Next to my fruit stand I have my Pink Crafter’s Tote Bag. Where I keep all my scrapbook essentials. You can find out more about my Tote Bag and Punch Boards organization here.

The last addition to my desk is the Bloom Storage. It has 16 compartments and you open and close them all together by simply twisting the top section of the Bloom Storage. You can use this gorgeous storage unit to organize your embellishments, office supplies, beads, etc! I use the bottom units to store all my Stitch Happy threads and bobbins; the middle section to store clips and small tool parts and the smaller tier to store small embellishments. In the top compartment I keep all my loose needles and pins.

Craft Room Organization Solutions by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I think it is easier to scrap when I have everything organized and on hand. What about you? How you keep your craft supplies organized?

Storage Solutions by Laura

Hey there, We R readers, Laura here today with some storage solutions for your favorite We R Memory Keepers tools and supplies.

My craft room is not huge plus I share it with my husband for his hobbies. I have a little over half the room to store all my crafting supplies and to work. Since the room itself is somewhat small, my favorite way to organize my tools is to go up! Utilizing vertical space on the walls makes the best use of my small space.

Storage Solutions by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I purchased some inexpensive shelves and brackets from the hardware store. It is amazing how much stuff I can fit on these two shelves. I have both the Cinch and the Evolution Advanced on them. Since they are both a little heavier, I have them on the ends directly over the brackets.

Baskets are a great way to corral all your punch boards and punches. You can find cute metal or woven baskets at just about any store. I have one basket for my alphabet punch boards (the regular and the mini), plus the papers, instruction booklets, and font punches.

Storage Solutions by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I also have a basket for other punch boards, the clear cut punches, and some other smaller We R tools like the ribbon cutter.

Storage Solutions by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I think my favorite new organizational tool that We R has come out with is the Bloom Storage. It doesn’t take up a lot of space on my desk, but once it is open it is perfect for corralling lots of little odds and ends.

Storage Solutions by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I love my planner but keeping all the clips and little ephemera I tuck into my planner organized can be a challenge. The Bloom storage is perfect for this. I also have my special DCWV letterboard icons and the clips for the Ruler Studio in there as well.
