Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Tuesday! Let’s talk about Craft Room Organization! I am sharing a few Craft Room Organization Tips on my stamp and die storage – the how’s and where’s!! Plus a mini craft room tour. Instead of a card tutorial I thought I would share a little bit about my crafty space and how I store my Stamps and dies.
I love these 3 Drawer Units, they are supposed to have feet but I chose not to use them. They work perfect for craft storage along with the 2 Door Cabinet (shown in the video). I have 2 systems I use for my colored cardstock. The one in the front is actually a shoe organizer, it works out great as I cut my paper length wise to store it. This has FSJ Cardstock, Hero Hues Cardstock and Concord & 9th Cardstock in it. My Copic Marker Storage Cubbies and my Ink Storage units (1 have 2 stacked) are from Organize More. The Cardstock organizer on the left stores my full size sheets of the new Spellbinders Color Essentials Cardstock🙂 The pretty bottle that looks like a fancy oil can is a mister that I picked up at my local store. I put a cleaner in it an use it to clean my craft desk:) Below I have more details on my stamp and die storage, enjoy!
Stamp Pocket & Die Pocket Storage
Above are the 3 items I use to create my stamp & die storage pockets, I do add a white cardstock insert to all my storage pockets. The pocket is a 5-5/8″ X 7-3/8″ Pocket from Amazon. I trim off the closure, I tape an insert cardstock sheet to back of a Spellbinders Large Storage Tab. This goes in the pocket to create my stamp storage pockets.
I number mine because I limit myself to 100 stamps. The insert sheet measures 5-1/2″ X 7″. It’s the same size as the Spellbinders Large Storage Tabs.
After creating the same pocket for my stamp storage it is easy to create my die storage. I use the Marietta Magnetics Adhesive Sheets 8.5″ x 11″, I trim one sheet to create 2 full die pockets, 2 stamp & die storage (below) and put the left over strip into a scrap envelope:)
The magnetic sheet is trimmed into two 5″ X 6-1/2″. I just remove the release paper and adhere it to the Spellbinders Large Storage Tabs.
I use the leftover piece of magnet from above to create my stamp & die storage pocket. I create the basic stamp pocket just adding the magnet.
It is perfect for smaller stamp sets that have coordinating dies.
Small Die Storage Pockets
Above are the 3-4 items I use to create my small die storage pockets, I do add a white cardstock insert to all my storage pockets. The pocket is a 4.5″ X 5″ Pocket from Totally Tiffany. I trim off the closure, I tape a white cardstock insert cardstock sheet to back of a Spellbinders Small Storage Tab. This goes in the pocket to create my small die storage. I DO NOT recommend these pockets as they are very thin and tear on the left and right easily. The Spellbinders/FSJ Small Storage Tabs are meant to work with the Spellbinders/FSJ Small Storage Pouch (shown on the right) they are amazing quality, heavy duty and durable. They do have a gusset on them that make my filing system bulky. That is the only reason I do not use them. I eventually will find a small storage system I like and will share it with you when I do:)
Above are the pockets I use to create my stencil storage, I do add a white cardstock insert that measures 6 x 6-1/4″ to the storage pocket. The pocket is a 6.75″ X 6.5″ Pocket from Totally Tiffany. This goes in the pocket to create my stencil storage. These pockets are on the thinner side and tear on the left and right once in a while, since stencils are thin I would say these are an okay storage suggestion….until I find better quality pockets that I like and will share it with you when I do:)
6 X 6 Stamps & XL Embossing Folder Storage
I use the Totally Tiffany 6×6 Fab File Refill for my 6×6 background stamps. These are heavy duty and durable pockets with a file tab at the top. I add a 6.75 x 6.75″ white cardstock insert to them. You will need a 7″ wide storage container to store these:)
The Totally Tiffany 6×6 Fab File Refill , same as above for my XL 6×6 Embossing Folders. These pockets are on the expensive side for me. Only 5 come in a package. My justification is that they are heavy duty and will last a long time.
I try to label all my crafty goodies and for convenience I like the DYMO LetraTag Handheld Label Maker. For larger 6 x 8 Stamps & Slimline Die storage I use the Avery Elle EXTRA LARGE Stamp and Die Storage Pockets 6.75 x 9.375 Set of 50. I also add a white cardstock insert that measures 7-5/8″ x 9-1/2 to my XL storage pockets.
You can watch how I create all my storage along with a mini craft room tour below or over on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here. Time to grab your coffee friends and let’s get to crafting! Have a Beautiful day! Hugs, Tina
