How to Store Your Scrapbook Paper Scraps

Hey there, crafty friends! It’s Aly here today. How’s your new year going so far? If you’re anything like me, storage and organization have been on the brain! I’m trying to get my craft room back into an efficient and organized state for upcoming projects this year. So, today I’m sharing my favorite tip for storing and organizing your scrapbook paper scraps, because let’s face it, we all have them, right?

Paper Scrap Storage by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

My favorite way to store my paper scraps is in the Expandable Paper Storage folders, and I organize them by color for cardstock, and by collection for patterned paper.

Inside each of the slots, I store the scraps in 12×12 Photo Sleeves so I can easily remove them when creating. I trim off the edge of the photos sleeves that has the holes so they’ll fit into the slots.

I created custom tabs by typing the different colors onto white cardstock, and then punching out the text with the Tab Punch. Then I slid the custom tabs into the tab holders on the dividers.

I keep my Expandable Paper Storage folders in the cubicles next to my desk so I can access them anytime I’m creating. So far it’s worked really well for me, and I feel like I’m using more of my paper scraps because they’re easy to find.

How to Keep Your Craft Room Organized

Hello everybody! Soraya here today to talk about a very important issue: how to store supplies and keep your craft area organized! Here are 3 tips just for you to store your washi tapes, your We R Tools and your mini paper pads.

Craft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes-1

When it comes to creating, you need to have your supplies well stored and organized to optimize your crafty time. You will spend more time having fun than searching for the right product/color/size…So here is my first tip to store your washi tape:

  1. Place them on the wall on thin wooden shelves
  2. Sort them by color/theme or rainbow color

I made these shelves with my husband from wooden plinths we had in store, and sprayed paint them in white. I could easily store more than 300 rolls in it! And it’s also very aesthetic for the look of my scraproom.

Concerning my mini paper pads, I love to have them stored in the Card and Craft Organizer from We R Memory Keepers. It’s easier to look inside and find the right patterns! It’s very handy with its dividers.

I keep all my essential tools in little pots on this big cake stand. I love the look of it and how it’s easy to pick any tool I need when I craft. In this kind of cake stand, you can store so many products. It’s very useful and totally handy as well!

Accessories To Organize Your Craft Cart

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing some ideas to use your A la Cart Accessories to organize your scrapbook supplies.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

One of the storage solutions I use most often in my craft room is my cart. I use it to store all my essentials and, because it has wheels, I can move it around in the room (or the house) and keep all the tools close to me all the time.

The A la Cart collection includes a storage cart but the good news is that all the accessories are compatible with most carts, including that nordic one some of us have.

To personalize my cart I started by adding the Liners on every shelf. The package includes 3 sticker liners and you can adhere them to your cart or just leave them on top of the shelf. I love the look of the liners, they protect my cart and prevent small things from falling down in the small holes.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I also used the Magnetic Labels to keep everything in order. I think they would be perfect to organize a cart for your kids, that way they can know exactly where to storage everything when they are done using it.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The labels are magnetic so you can move them around if you decide to change your organization.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To change labels, simply erase the chalkboard with a wet cloth and write again using the included chalkboard pen.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Finally my favorite item was the Cart Apron. It has 3 areas were you can store your most used items. On the top you can organize tools like: scissors, craft knifes, pen, etc. You can even put your Crop a Dile in there!

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used the middle section to store some essentials like my mini trimmer, the mini score board and the magnetic mat. The pockets are very wide and hold lots of supplies.

A La Cart Accessories by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

On the final section I put two of my favorite tools: The Book Binding Tool and The Stitch Happy Pen with all of its accessories.  You can even store your Trim And Score on the pocket, it fits perfectly and it is great to have your trimmer next to you all the time.

These are some ideas to organize your scrapbook supplies but you could use your cart to organize knitting supplies, embroidery or mixed media paints! Anyway you use it, I am sure these accessories are going to help you keep everything in place and create beautiful things!

Thanks for joining me today and have a great day!

Craft Storage and Organization Roundup

It’s the weekend friends! Are you excited? We R! (Get it? LOL!) Today we’ve got a roundup of craft room storage and organization ideas for the new year that we think you’re going to love! So sit back, grab something warm to drink and enjoy the inspiration.

1. Store Completed Cards by Theme

660270_wr_cardcraftorganizer_hsn_creativesamples_6

Once you complete your handmade cards, store them in the Card and Craft Storage Bin by theme. That way when you need a card they’re easy to find! Bonus tip: Keep envelopes stored with your cards.

2. Store Completed Layouts Safely

661105_wr_12x12craft&photocase_hsn_creativesamples_1 small

If you’re at a craft night, event, or retreat keep your completed layouts safe and sound in the 12×12 Craft and Photo Case until you’re ready to add them to your scrapbook album.

3. Store Paper Supplies by Collection

661105_wr_12x12craft&photocase_hsn_creativesamples_5

Keep the guess work out of crafting by using complete paper collections on your projects. Storing your supplies by collection in the Craft and Storage Large Case makes it easy to find what you need.

4. Store Punch Boards and Accessories Together

 

Some of our Punch Boards have accessories that add to their versatility. Store those boards with their accessories in the Bloom Pouch for easy creating. That way you’ll never have to dig through your stash to find everything you need to get the most out of your punch boards.

Craft Room Storage Tips with Laura

Hey there, We R friends, Laura here today. I am sharing some storage and organization tips for you today to get all your favorite We R supplies organized. I have lots of We R Memory Keepers supplies, and I like to keep them all together so when I am ready to work on a project, I have everything I need.

First up, I wanted to share with you some of the new storage bottles that were recently released. They come in lots of different shapes and sizes in both plastic and glass. The small screw stack jars are perfect for storing eyelets.

We R Memory Keepers Storage Bottles, Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Laura Silva

The snap lid jars keep my small planner supplies within easy reach and organized.

There are also shaker jars and vials. These are perfect for storing loose glitter that you purchase. It is also great to have a shaker jar rather than one with a screw on top to make it easier to apply the right amount of glitter right where you need it on your project.

We R Memory Keepers Storage Bottles by Laura Silva

I shared a quick look at my craft cart in my design team introduction. You can purchase these three-tiered carts just about anywhere now! They are wonderful because they have a lot of vertical space and you can roll them to wherever you want to craft. Which for me, is usually my kitchen table.

On the top shelf, I have a bunch of punch boards, my precision press, and a tote that carries all my hand tools. The basket keeps the punch boards from falling over and the tote is easy to remove from the cart and place wherever I want to craft.

Punch Board Storage Tips by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

On the second shelf, I have one of my favorite We R tools, the word punch board, letter punches, and number punches.

Punch Board Storage Tips by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

At first, I kept all the letters clicked together, but since I use this tool so much, I found having them loose in a container works best for me. I have them separated in 3 containers – letters A – M, letters N – Z, and then all the numbers.

Punch Board Storage Tips by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I also have my circle trimmer and Happy Jig on this shelf as well. I used another one of the totes to corral all the happy jig wires.

Craft Room Storage Tips by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

On the bottom I have a basket for all my alphabet punch board supplies, plus some addition punch boards tucked in next to the basket.

Craft Room Storage Tips by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Again, I like to keep all my supplies together if I can. In the basket I have the alphabet punch board, mini alphabet punch board, alphabet punch board papers, and the font punches that go with them. I keep the instruction books right in the basket, so I never have to search for them.

Craft Supply Storage Tips with Rebecca

Hello!  It’s Rebecca with you today for my first official WRMK post of 2019!  Like many of you, I’m guessing, I’m diving head first into reorganizing my house for a fresh start.  I’ve left a trail of unfinished (and some not even started!) projects behind me as I transition from the holidays into the new year, the contents of which were scattered around the house in shoeboxes, brown paper bags, and plastic bins.  I was more than thrilled to receive a couple of WRMK’s new Bloom Pouches, which made storing some of these project materials incredibly convenient.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

I definitely found myself wanting to do more DIY projects as 2018 drew to a close.  This was thanks in part to the holiday decorating fever I get every year, but also thanks to acquiring a few new WRMK tools that make DIY easy and fun.  One of those tools was the Jumbo Pom Pom Maker.  Around mid-November I decided to a start a pom pom garland.  I got 3 pom poms in and had to put it aside as the holiday madness closed in.  Yet, I know this is something I still want to have for next year and I can work on it once things settle down, usually around mid-January.  This is where one of my lovely Bloom Pouches comes in.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

I can store my skeins of yarn and the Jumbo Pom Pom Maker in the pouch!  The pouch opens up flat so I can see all of my supplies and grab them quickly.

Then it cinches closed and I can tuck my large fabric scissors under the closure flap for transport.  (I tend to need those scissors often, so I don’t want to close them up in the pouch.)  I can carry the pouch from the dining room table to the couch to the car.  It’s easy to bring this lot to the park, too, so I can work on the pom poms while my kids play.  When we’re done, or if we have to make a quick bathroom run, everything closes back up quickly and simply.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca LuminariasWe R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

This won’t be a project I can work on every day so I also appreciate that the pouch closes up neatly and can be tucked away in a closet or in a basket until I’m ready to get back to it.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

Another project I wanted to make but ran out of time for was a felt ball garland.  I bought all the felt balls to create it, with visions of quiet nights in front of the Christmas tree, a candle burning, a podcast playing…and then reality hit and there were almost ZERO quiet nights in December!

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

I decided that I’d still like to make a garland, but I’ll make it suitable for keeping up year-round.  This, too, will be a project to visit once life returns to normal, post-holiday.  It’s all stored conveniently in my pink Bloom Pouch, too!

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

This folds up and transports just as the other pouch does and I do plan for some quiet nights later this month.  With the felt balls, as well as the twine on which I’ll string them, all snug inside the pouch, I can take this to the living room or the park, as well.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

I’ve utilized the small interior zipper pockets to store my needles and a pair of scissors.  It’s so handy, especially for the needles so they don’t get lost.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

I have a feeling that this may not be an activity that I can finish in one sitting, but there’s plenty of room in the pouch for the work-in-progress garland, and that means I can keep this with my pom pom project pouch, both in a basket next to the couch to pull out when I have some free time.

We R Memory Keepers Bloom Storage Pouch by Rebecca Luminarias

If you can’t tell, I’m smitten with the Bloom Pouches!  I can see using them for all kinds of things, too, not just craft projects.  For now, though, they’re making my life a little bit easier and a lot more organized, corralling some fun projects I can’t wait to finish up.

Storage Tips with Soraya Maes

Hi We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to give you some of my storage tips! I love organizing my work space as it constantly evolves depending on the project I’m working in. Let’s have a look on my documenting station, homemade paper storage, my drawers and my glitter factory!

I have a whole desk dedicated to documention: I definitely think that it’s more handy and useful to have everything in the same place than having them separated in drawers and boxes. It is also my cute/kawaii place where I can display all the pretty unicorn and panda stuff!

Craft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersCraft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

I store my papers in a wooden tower that I totally hand made! They are all organized by brand and collection so that I can easily find them. If you want to learn how to make your own you can see the how to on my blog!

Craft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

There is also in my scraproom a specific corner for my stationary! I’m so in love with notebooks, planners, travel notebooks and all the colorful brush pens that I decided to gather them! Here is another tip for you: use a make up storage container (the clear drawers) to store all of your pencils and brush pens!

Craft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

My Label It maker and all its accessories are stored in those blue baskets so that I can easily reach them. It’s very handy for storing all the colorful tapes.

I have a thing with small transparent containers as you can see in my drawers! I just love to store all my pretty little embellishments in them, this is why you can see them everywhere in my scraproom! This is perfect to organize the wood veeners and the sequins as well.

This little shelf is like a small boutique for me, this is why I call it “my glitter factory”. This is a tray that was intially made to store the cutlery but when you install it vertically you get a cute shelf to store the glitter containers! How cool?!

Organize Your Craft Supplies with Eva

Hi everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here sharing a few tips to keep your supplies in order. Tip #1: Who loves punch boards? I know I do! I keep mine in a wire basket and leave all my blades and small accessories in a box inside. That way the blades don’t get lost and you can use the same blade for all your punch boards. When the blade is dull you start using another one! I also keep a file inside the basket with all my punch instructional booklets, when I need help using my punch boards I always know where to look!
Tip #2: the one thing that is ALWAYS on my desk is my pink Crafter’s Tote Bag. I keep all my pencils, glues, scissors, rulers, Crop A Dile and Corner Punches inside. It’s the perfect companion! I love to have all the thing I use in the same place. If you need to divide your Tote Bag even more just add a can like I did! I keep small accessories inside so they don’t get lost in the big space.
Thanks so much ladies for the helpful tips for storing your favorite craft supplies. Come back tomorrow for some more awesome ideas to keep your stash organized!

Storage and Organization Tips with Chantalle

Hello WRMK fans, Chantalle here. I have a small creative space and utilise some very cute white bookshelves to store items I use frequently, so I have them to hand when I need them. IKEA has some of my favourite storage tubs which come in handy when it comes to storing similar products or tools. I use a medium size tub (17cm x 24cm) to store my embossing folders and packs of ephemera.
 
There is a larger size tub (33.5 x 24cm) which is perfect for my punch boards as well as my hand punches. Another slightly shallower tub has a lid, in which I like to store items from my Typecast collection. (These tubs are also stackable which is fab.) One tip which I shared on Insta recently is that I like to store all of my punch board blades together in one mini tub and just use one for a couple of boards if it’s universal etc. This way, I just dull the edge of one blade at a time, instead of all of them.
 
 
It’s great to have pretty bits and pieces on display. Glass bowls or pretty tea cups are great finds at dollar stores or op shops and are fabulous for storing buttons, brads or washi tapes.
Thanks for stopping by and for letting me share these ideas with you. Happy organising!
