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!

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!

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!

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?!

Craft Room Storage and Organization with Enza

Hello, crafty friends! Enza here, and I’m back today to share a few organizational tips with you all. I don’t have a craft room – all my crafting is done at the kitchen table, so I’ve had to find the best storage solutions that allowed me to get my supplies in and out in a fast and easy way.

A must-have for me is a rolling cart. All my basic supplies, such as scissors, adhesives, trimmers, but also mixed media supplies and other tools that I use on a daily basis are sitting in the cart and easily accessible at any time. Here is also where I store all the bits and pieces from collections I’m working with. They sit in separate pretty little plates or bowls and get rearranged based on my needs.

A separate cart is entirely dedicated to my We R Memory Keepers tools.

Craft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I used the new amazing Label It Maker to mark the trays based on type of supply and keep them as organized as possible — on a side note, this works really well when you have kids that love to use your crafty tools! They know exactly where everything goes, and it makes it easier to clean up!

Craft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory KeepersCraft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

What I love about the Label It Maker is that it is easy and fast to use, and comes with accessories, such as font wheels, label holders, and a wide variety of colored tape rolls, that help in the organization process. You can change tape and font wheels in no time, and color-code your supplies for a very organized space.

Craft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

Bins, boxes and baskets are also a wonderful option, especially if you don’t have a designated area where you can just sit and craft. I try to find pretty, but also functional items that can be easily transported from the storage room, where all my supplies are, to my scrappy space. They are affordable and definitely help keep your stash super organized – I usually categorize everything per type, collection, or manufacturer to make it easier to find what I’m looking for.

Wire baskets are great for holding washi tape rolls as well. Anything helps in a small space, right?

Craft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

Sometimes I find that storage units meant to be used for a specific item are perfect for crafting supplies. This nail polish organizer keeps ink sprays, paint bottles and embossing powders neat and tidy. It is sturdy but light, so easy to carry around.

Craft Room Storage and Organization Tips with Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

One last thing I wanted to show you is how I organize my ink pads. My husband just finished this unit for me. It holds so many of them! A great way to keep it functional is by color – The little adhesive dots I inked and adhered to the outside of each case are a great help when it comes to find color combinations.

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!

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.

Storage larger punch boards in paper storage cubicles. Featured in Aly Dosdall's craft room.

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.

Crate Paper Desktop Paper Storage | We R Memory Keepers Medium Craft Storage Bin, Expandable Paper Storage, and Black Leather Album featured in Aly Dosdall's craft room

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.

Crafter's Tote Bag and Bloom Storage by We R Memory Keepers featured in Aly Dosdall's craft room

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!)

We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape Dispenser featured in Aly Dosdall's craft room

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.

We R Memory Keepers 12x12 Craft Storage Bin featured in Aly Dosdall's craft room

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!

Make Tabs with the Word Punch Board

Hello and Happy Friday friends! It’s Aly Dosdall here again. My daughter recently graduated from high school and was blessed to receive some generous cash gifts from friends and family. When it came time for her to write thank you notes she knew exactly where to go in my craft room!

Create custom tabs to keep organized with the Word Punch Board. Aly Dosdall shares how.

I recently organized all my handmade cards and stored them in the Card and Craft Organizer by theme so I could easily grab one when I needed it. My daughter easily found some thank you cards to send to her generous donors.

Word Punch Board Tabs by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers.

I organize my cards in a way that works for me based on the type of cards I give away most often. The Word Punch Board made it easy to customize my tabs to fit my needs. My cards for celebrations (birthdays, showers, weddings, graduation) are behind the “YAY” tab; all occasion cards (friendship, hello, thinking of you, etc) are behind the “HELLO” tab; the “CMAS” tab is for Christmas and Holiday cards; “FOR YOU” is gift tags, gift cards, and sympathy; thank you cards are behind “THANKS”; and the “SEASON” tab is for all other holiday and seasonal cards (Easter, Halloween, fall spring, etc).

Make custom tabs with the Word Punch Board and Tab Punch Board

I started by centering the letters in my punch guide. Then I trimmed my gold foil paper to 4 1/2 inches wide and punched my word. (Be sure to save the leftover letters for another project!) After punching the word I used the Tab Punch Board to punch the edges and then trimmed the tab to 7/8 inch tall.

Word Punch Board Tabs by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers.

I backed each tab with a strip of plain white cardstock and then adhered the tabs to the dividers in the bin. This is a great way to use up paper scraps!

Word Punch Board Tabs by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers.

The Word Punch Board is a great way to customize tabs for just about anything you want to organize. You can use the letters that you punch out, as well as the paper you punch them from. Get the look you want with your choice of paper and colors.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend friends!

Throwback Thursday: Storage & Organization Tips with Chantalle

Today we’re throwing it back to last summer with some awesome craft room storage and organization tips from design team member Chantalle McDaniel. Here’s what she has to say:

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
