What to do with a mess of ribbon?

Started by Laurie Morris. Last reply by Tamtamv Aug 10. 16 Replies

I love ribbon and have a tendency to buy snippets on a regular basis! The problem was that my stash soon became a huge mess! Fortunately I came up with a great way to organize all these snippets. I…Continue

I have several different sizes of Sizzix Dies, Tim Holtz dies & Spellbinders dies. How do YOU store them? I've tried plastic boxes, wood boxes, closet sorter made of canvas that hangs (sections…Continue

How I store my dies

Sharon I still store all my flat metal dies in CD cases with a magnet sheet adhered inside. You must buy the older thicker CD cases and simply remove the black insert. I have found them at Staples in…Continue

I want to hear about Joyce's new craft room AND any pics or videos would be nice.  So, Joyce, when you have a spare minute would you show and tell?

I, for one, can't wait to see her place.  I know she is going to give us all some good ideas.

Also, I have been waiting for a video tour of Laurie's re-vamped craft area.  Laurie?  Please come back and do one of your fabulous video tours?  Please?

Greetings!  I just saw this group and decided that I might learn something from you all.  I have been stamping for over 10 years and have a large supply.  Now I am into embossing folders and dies, more items to store.  I am eager to learn some new things.

I grouped dies by ovals, circles, lacy, folige etc. I cut the die pic from the card and taped onto the cardboard that came in the book. I will put a easy tag and a number. I am thinking of scanning the page with images and put into a binder (probably the binder/book with my stamp set images) and number each book...easier to find. I am doing the same for my GinaK boxes of stamps

I use the black magnetic books for my Spellbinders and other dies, also. Used to be able to find them at Hobby Lobby, but they no longer carry Quik Cuts brand in my local store (haven't checked online lately). Thanks for the Amazon link, Joyce. When mine fill up, I'll order them there. Anyone have ideas for labeling the very thin spine? I used my label maker, but they are difficult to read, since they are so small. Darlene

One of the links Anna posted showed black magnetic books for spellbinders (quick cutz). I got 8 and need 5 more. Really save on space but pricey but at least the dies don't fall off. For the most part I squeezed 5 sets into each book.  http://www.amazon.com/Lifestyle-Crafts-10-inch-Magnetic-Storage/dp/...

Hi Everyone!
As per Anna's request, I thought I'd pop in and say hi.
It just so happens that my craft supplies have multiplied to the point that my very small craft room needs some revamping. Enlarging it is not any option right now so I need to do some creative reorganizing. I've run out of shelf room for stamp sets and a place to put my spellbinder dies. I have no more room for punches, stickles, etc. each and every area designated to those things has met full capacity so I need to do something. I have some ideas in mind so will be posting some before and after photos for you. I'm starting the revamp today but its take a few days as I need to get some supplies. I'll keep you posted

Hi! I recognize the clear, plastic drawers you referred to under your table. My table is normal height & I have about 4 of them rolled under there. I also have clear, plastic 12 x 12 boxes stacked nearly to the ceiling (almost an exageration) with scrapbook projects inside. I have a box for every theme you can imagine, every person in my life I'm scrapbooking for, & every shade of paper they will hold. I have two grown sons, and I have one large plastic tub for each of their stuff I want to scrapbook. Plus, I have way too much stuff for organizing! Does that make any sense? Do you guys find yourself buying stuff for organizing (boxes, racks, binders, etc.) & then not having any place to put it? What the heck is THAT? If I could clear that kind of stuff I could probably get around the room, even on my crutches. As it is, my sister has banned me from my craft room until my ankle heals in fear something will fall on top of me or I'll fall on top of it. Hmmmmm. She's got a point.

Hopefully I did this link correctly.  This is the gal who's craft area is one half of a guest room.  Gotta be one BIG guest room, I'm thinking.  LOL  Very interesting, and clever ideas, though!

Comment by Anna Jernigan on May 4, 2013 at 9:59pm

oooh, oooh, Cheryl, take a pic for us of your "new cupboards" (chuckle, is that Australian for cabinets?) LOL  I can relate to you, also, with the "more stuff coming" comment.  That's the whole deal.  How can a person organize a room which has limited square footage (or meters), but constantly adding to the stuff to be organized.  That's like physically impossible, right?  Hoarding starts to peep it's ugly head, me thinks.  Seriously, when do you say, time to get rid of a Stamp Set, or whatever?  GASP!  But, when the room doesn't grow, but the craft supplies do.....somethings got to give!  I started card-making as a serious hobby about Jan 2012.  I have accumulated things, let's just say, and I swear some of them multiply in the night....LOL  Anyway, important stuff, like stamps, inks, die-cut tools, folders, are all non-consumables.  THEN, there are the consumables, like paper, cardstock, ink, markers, blah, blah, blah.  If I am already nearly bursting at the seams, where will I be in say......6 months?  A year?  OMGosh, I need some serious ideas, for dealing with all of these things.  I have an outlet for the scraps that I  really don't need, but.... I have heard peeps say they have file folders with the various colors, but who has room for file folders?  I have gone to the YouTube videos for craftroom organization videos.  One gal had one half of a guest room, and made it work!  How is that possible, I kept thinking that she wasn't showing something...like the basement filled with the other stuff...LOL  Hey, I admit that it crossed my mind. LOL  Plus, she is on a design team, AND makes lots of videos!  Sheesh.  There's another gal I know, Laurie, who is like a organizing Queen, and she makes it work.  It's got to be: discipline!  Making a plan, staying on task, and sticking to it....of course, that makes sense.  I think I need a plan, that's specific to me, but where does one find that?  Here, in this group, I hope.  So, Cheryl and everyone else, please.......show and tell.  How to store, without forgetting about the items.  How to store whole stamp sets, by manufacturer?  Theme?  All that stuff, has entered my mind, then I just end up shoving it in a clear box.  Sure they are stackable, but one day an avalanche is going to happen, and that can get ugly.  LOL  Okay, nuff said.  I will check back.  Thanks for having me.

Comment by Cheryl Wright on May 4, 2013 at 2:56am

My hubby just finished making cupboards for my craftroom.  Now that it's finished, I must get organised!

Totally relate, Anna. I've had stuff all over the room - in boxes no less.  Hopefully, now I have more space, I'll be better organised, and have much less clutter.

Of course, I'd have to stop buying craft goodies for that to happen. As if!
