Crafty Desk Tour

One of my favorite things to do is organize. Really, I love organizing anything, and everything.

But most of all, my favorite place to dive in and organize is in my craft room. 

Over the next few weeks I want share with you difference pieces of my Crafty Studio and how I have organized it.

I want to start by sharing the Storage By Stampin’ Up that I recently got.

I feel like the spaces that I use most get tweaked the most often. Sometimes it takes a little while to find a good organization, and storage systems for things.

Here are the way I use to store my ink pads when they were the old style ink pads. 

It is a little bit harder to see how my ink pads are set up because the photo is at an angle, however I couldn’t find a photo looking directly at the ink pads.

Once Stampin’ UP Redesigned the ink pads I new I wanted the new style just so they would stack better. This is sort of my set up was before getting the new storage.

Again, I couldn’t find a photo before I started using some of the new storage. 

Here you can see that I had 3 floating shelves that I stacked everything on. I was also using old Project Life by Stampin’ Up boxes to hold my markers.

Once I got the new storage items I had to change around the way I had my floating shelves.

Which was a little bit of a nightmare, however I am happy to say I did all by myself, without the help of my husband!

I was nervous I wasn’t  going to like the fact that the shelves needed to stick way out on one side. 

However, once I got the shelves set up, and the storage units put together I found that with everything on the shelves it didn’t look as bad as I thought.

It took a little bit of time to change things around, fix cords, and get things in the order I wanted them.

I also took a little bit of time to change around some decor pieces that fit better in different area.

Now I feel like this the perfect set to use with these storage pieces.

As soon as I get the final Stamp Pad, and Marker storage piece I will share a photo of how it ends up looking.

I love that Stampin’ Up has created a Configuration Chart for us to use when we are trying to figure out what pieces we need.

I ended up shorting myself one Ink Pad / Marker tray when I first ordered. 

You can click on the chart and print it out to use. There is a second page to the document that shows some examples of how things can be put together.

You can purchase any of the items I used on today’s project in my online store HERE, or by clicking on the photos below.
