On top are my carousel (with all my essential tools) as well as my Clip It Ups.
I'm now the lucky owner of two Clip It Up base units and two upper tiers. When I recently added the upper tiers, I totally re-organised all my hanging items so they are completely sorted into categories now. This not only makes it really easy to find what I'm looking for but easy to maintain/add in new items.
One unit holds all my alphabets. The top tier in the picture above was the perfect height for all my rub on letters, sorted into colours of course.
The bottom is chock-full of my other letters - stickers, chipboard etc. For the colour dividers, I punched a flower out of the corresponding colour cardstock. Oh how I love letters . . .
The other one holds all stickers/embellishments etc with the smaller items on the top tier. Here are the categories that work for me:
- Fancy brads
- Paper doilies
- Border stickers
- Misc epoxy stickers
- Misc chipboard accents
- Misc 3D accents (dimensional stickers, flair etc)
- Misc stickers
- Word fetti (I have lots of these)
- Journaling Spots
- Rub on words/phrases
- Rub on accents
Now, onto my drawers starting with the ones closest to my workspace.
All my ink pads and mists are stored in the first drawer so they're nice and handy. I keep them all separated in cheap plastic containers from Crazy Clarks or a shop like it.
The next two drawers contain my punches. To ensure they don't slide around in there I first put non slip liners in them. It works a treat :)
Most of my drawers look like this, storing all my smaller and loose embellishments by colour. If I can take it out of its packaging, if it's predominantly one colour, it goes in my colour drawers. This is my pink and purple (just a small amount of purple) and clear drawer.
Next drawer down is for my green, blue and aqua embellishments. You can see I use more plastic containers and trays to keep everything divided. The flat tray at the back was from Target and is perfect for 12 inch edges etc.
Another plastic tray, this one storing tags (manilla and metal rimmed) and staples as well as embroidery thread and brads/eyelets.
The next embellishment drawer holds black and white embellishments as well as anything metal (bookplates etc).
My last embellishment drawer holds anything brown/beige, red, orange and yellow. Some of the items you will find in my embellishments drawers include:
- Journaling spots
- Decorative tape
- Dymo tape
- Die cuts
- Frames etc
Finally, the very last drawer holds a plethora of mediums such as paint, stickles, glitter, embossing powers etc.
Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon with a look at even more of the nooks in my scraproom! Thanks for your lovely comments too!
