Getting Organized – Part 2 with Jen Roach!

It’s time for another Your Next Stamp mini series for …”Getting Organized”!  

Hi!  Jen Roach here and today I’m sharing more organizational tips with you today. Those of you that have seen my craft space know that it’s far from organized but I do have a few things you might find inspirational for your craft space.

First up I’d like to show you two garage sale finds and how I put them to good use in my craft space.  Keep an eye open at your local thrift shops or garage sales for economical ways to organize your craft space!

The first garage sale item is a CD/DVD rack that I bought for $5.  It’s PERFECT for storing 6″ x 6″ paper pads.  Down the right hand side where the CDs racks were I just stacked up some Sizzix dies and miscellaneous stuff and some more pads on top (and yes, I have an addiction to paper LOL!)

Next up is another media rack that I scored for $1.  This one sits on the back of my desk and stores my Distress Ink pads and Distress Stains.  I also have a few miscellaneous ink pads at the bottom.  As you can see I labeled the sides of most of my ink pads so it’s easy to find the colour I need.  I took advantage of the top to store some baker’s twine.  

And now here’s how I organize and store some of my Your Next Stamp items.  I have a dollar store basket on my desk that I keep my clear stamps in.  I also keep any of the new release items I need to work with and any of my YNS embellishments.:

For my YNS Dies, I use the Art Bin system.  It comes with magnetic sheets and they are stackable.  I try to group my dies by theme but truthfully they just end up randomly on the sheets”

Here’s a peek at how they look closed.  I keep them at the back of one of my tables.  You’ll also see I use some buckets to store my pens/markers to the left of the die storage:

And finally today here’s how I store my YNS cling mount stamps.  I use EZ Mount storage panels and then keep them in binders or in stacks in my craft cabinet.  Here’s my daughter modeling a sheet for you:

    Wow. Who’d have thought about CD storage for inks and paper! Only problem, I hate shopping for any furniture and going to yard sales! LOL Thanks for the tips!
