By | Organization | 14 Comments

I know that I’ve posted about my fabulous paper storage shelf before, but I’ve had a lot of questions about it recently.  It seems that the link to the directions no longer works because my husband posted them on another site. So, if you are handy or have someone that is, here are the plans for building a paper shelf like the one you see here. Materials: For Frame: ¾” x 12” shelving material, Compressed wood recommended, usually white or woodgrain (2) 9’ lengths, holes pre-drilled on one side (2) 9’ lengths, holes drilled on both sides (1) 4’ length,…

Yesterday I went to visit my friend Anne at her Craft Palace.  We had a great time stamping, sharing My Digital Studio projects and cutting out fabric with the Big Shot. Before I left, Anne let me take some pictures to share with you.  Hope you get some great ideas on how to organize your craft space! Anne’s got a long wall of shelves and countertop work space.  Love it! Colorful photo boxes hold a variety of smaller embellishments, plus she has empty ones to grow into.  Two ways to store ribbon – on a wire rack and strung on…

The Extra-Large size punches…

Okay, it’s confession time for me.  In general I am very organized, but when it comes to paper scraps I am a mess! I throw all my paper scraps smaller than a quarter sheet into this bin.  As you can see, it is overflowing.  I find myself cutting into a full sheet of card stock before digging through this bin for the color I need.  Occasionally I tip the whole bin into the trash and start over.  Gasp!! So this is where you can help me… How do you store your paper scraps? Please leave a comment on this post…
