Ink pad storage

I don't know about you, but I've always struggled with Ink pad storage, and I've always wanted something specific, but couldn't obtain one from the UK that would fit my Stampin Up ink pads. Santa (disguised as my husband, or is that the other way around) left one he'd made himself hung on one of the walls of my craft room on Christmas eve.




What do you think?



One day, I will have my craft room finished and I will show you pictures of the whole room ...

BTW If you'd like something similar I know that Craftracks in the UK sell storage racks but sorry the SU pads are too big for the multiracks.

Edited to say that after many requests I've updated my original post on my blog with design details :O) Merry Christmas

A great studio



Sometimes the greatest ideas come in the smallest packages. And this is one of them. We often forget that having a great space to create is not about size it is about creativity and what inspires us to create. Some are lucky and have amazing rooms, others have just amazing spaces in their cupboard.

Bear with us

This is just a quick message to explain why there hasn't been many posts lately. Well, as you can imagine the road to Christmas is as busy time for us at the Crafty Storage team as is for anyone, so we have all been busy with work, family and other commitments.  
Hopefully, once we pass Christmas we can resume the posting more often as before.


Thanks!

Rose's Metal Die Storage

Metal dies are all the rage (as you can tell by all the ideas lately to store them!)

Here's another idea from Rose, over at Something You Occasions. She uses stamp binders and magnetic sheets to securely hold all her dies!

What I love about this solution is that when the binder is closed, all the dies are contained within it - no worries about one slipping out! Hop over to Rose's blog to find out more.

Die Storage

Chris Simon has taken Dawn McVey's Metal die storage idea and altered it slightly.


Each uses just a quarter sheet of cardstock and the pouches are made from plain clear envelopes (no sewing!)


In Chris' words ....... Quick, easy, and cheap!

Harriet's idea: Copic (or any pen) storage


Love this idea from Harriet Hensley. A silverware holder, as seen in a cafeteria or restaurant. An additional advantage is the plastic holder can be removed and taken to your work table.

Lucie's stamp storage


I received a few weeks ago this submission by Lucie. I love it, it is crafty in more ways than one as it recycles a craft product. This is what Lucie has to say:
I try to give a second life to stuff that would usually go to the recycle bin.  In this case, I used the 12x12 packaging from Fancy Pants (the one you buy felt or stamps in) and put my stamps in it.  I punched 3 holes and placed them in a 12 x 12 3-ring binder.  I love this storage because I don't loose any stamps.

A tour of Jennifer Ellefson's Creative Space

Jennifer Ellefson has posted a tour around her beautiful craft space


I love the all the white - isn't it peaceful, just perfect to be creative in.


Jenn's main desk area - and in her own words "I like having things within reach, so there are lots of neat little storage options. It all appears to go together, but in reality, it doesn't! ;) I just keep my eyes peeled for good storage pieces, preferably those that go vertical with a small footprint so as not to take up too much space on the surface. If it isn't the right color, I usually just paint it!"

And a second work surface holds her sewing machine, die cut machine and copics


And a closer pic of her copic storage



To see more photos of Jenn's craft space click here, or here for the main page of her blog.
