It has been 2 years since my last tour and although a couple things have stayed the same, a lot has changed!! This is a long video – almost 25 minutes, but I have tried to give you a lot of storage ideas throughout the video!! To start, I have the Billy Bookcases and the Expedit Bookcases from Ikea. I love the Expedit units since they are about 13″ wide, they will hold various scrapping supplies!
Here is the other side of the room.
And this is our “Hallway”. We live in a Townhouse Downtown Toronto so I have learned to use every bit of space!!
I still love the Ribbon Ring system for my ribbons!! It makes it easy to find a piece of ribbon!
I use the CD boxes from Ikea to store everything!! Stamps, dies, embossing folders, paints, ink pads, 6″x6″ paper pads, sewing supplies, odds and ends, Glimmer Mists, journalling supplies, gems, iTop accessories, iRock and accessories, Letterpress supplies and more! You can fit 4 across a Billy Bookcase or 2 within an Expedit cube.
I forgot to mention in the video how I got the shelves that divide the cube. That is originally the set that divides the cube into 4. Mark re-worked the pieces to make this simple shelf, dividing the cube in 2! It has allowed me to store almost twice as much stuff!!
These paper boxes from Ikea are fabulous as well! I use them to store my punches, Washi Tape, wooden stamps, Ten Seconds Studio metal and moulds, embossing powders and glitter, tools, Chip Art Tools, adhesives, paints, alcohol inks, stickles and Letterpress stuff!
I store my unmounted rubber stamps in these Bella Boxes from Stamping Bella! The stamps stick to the sheets and if one was to fall off, it is still trapped in the box. (I couldn’t find the boxes on the Bella site. You can email them to see if they still sell them)
My buttons are stored in the Making Memories organizer. I bought it at a 2nd hand sale for $5.
All my small embellishments – brads, crystals, metal embellishments, etc. – are stored in these bead boxes I got at Michael’s a few years back for $2 each.
I still love my Clip-It-Up!! It makes it really easy to see what you have!!
I have 1 Iris Cart left for some paper and my circle cutter.
I still love my Making Memories Carousel Organizer!! Makes it easy to have everything at your fingertips!
I bought this tray at the ROM gift shop. Perfect for all the loose items I keep out.
And no matter how much organizing I do, I still have a bin of ribbon. My last bin to try and hang up all the ribbon. But I keep running out of the ribbon holders!
Well, I hope you make it through the whole video!! If you have any questions or comments leave them here on the blog and I will get back to you!!
On the next episode I am showing you how to take this years Christmas Cards and turn them into next years tags!!
Thanks for watching!
