how to store the small stuff...

If you're like me and you use paper for any of your crafting habits, you often feel the need to hold on to some all of your scraps.  The only problem then, is how to store them.  The other day I had a brillant idea (don't get too excited just yet).  What if I didn't store the scraps, but I used them?  Enter this super simple card...

So, this Crafty Storage blog post was a bit different.  Instead of showing you how to store the scraps, I've given you a quick way to use 'em all!  :)  This should help to free up a bit more space and allow the Crafty Storage to continue.

Amy's unmounted stamp storage

Unmounted stamps have quickly become an extremely popular choice with stampers. The lack of a wooden block means they're inexpensive to ship, extremely portable, and take up a lot less space.

Of course, that means you need a way to store them! Amy over at Prairie Paper and Ink has created a video that highlights the product she uses to store her unmounted stamps:

You can find the same type of stamp storage boxes at many online stores, including the following:

Simply Sue's Simple Ribbon Storage

When I saw Sue's ribbon storage idea I couldn't believe how simple it was ...

Just one old shelf and some dowling rods ...

A very simple, but effective way to organise rolls of ribbon. I love how Sue has colour coordinated each giant spool :O)

Beth's clever ideas and studio

IKEA curtain wire across the top and magnetic knife holders display cards and projects.
Jet Max cube system and a pegboard from Walmart.

I love this ink pad holder foam core ink pad holder that her daughter made for $2 and some glue sticks. Above it hangs a screw etc caddy from the hardware store.

Her handy daughter made Beth these racks to hold the stamp sets. After seeing something similar at IKEA for 20 dollars for 6 feet, she made them out of wood, stained and mounted them for 20 dollars total!

After losing more than a few sheets of cardstock to fading from the sun, Beth asked her friend Larissa to make a "cozie" for the paper racks.

Made by Soraya: Ink Pad Storage Tower

My friend Soraya and her husband Peter has designed its own storage system for ink pads!

Every time she was looking for a neat and easy way to store my distress ink. And if she used the ink, she always had to go looking for the right colour ... really awkward ... until her husband came with the solution ... he made some sketches ... went into his workshop ... and after a few days he came with a prototype. She was just so excited, finally a good storage system, convenient and easy. She can easily take it with her when I go scrapping, it’s an excellent addition to her desk and she can even finish it to suit my style by scrapping it in the colours she like.
Meanwhile, the prototype has grown into a full model.
They have chosen to put this article on the market, because she is convinced that more people are looking for good storage solutions. So take a look at her website for more photos of the Ink Pad Storage Tower designed by Made by Soraya. This is also the place to order them.

Ofcourse I have them myself and they are super! I altered them, so they fit nicely in my interior. For more pictures see my blog (Maria).
