How I store my Card Making Supplies & Organize my Craft Space…

By October 24, 2017Organization

I’m often asked “How do you store your… (insert card making supply here)”. So here’s a video where I show you how I store my card making supplies (paper, paper scraps, stamps, punches, ribbon, embellishments, framelit dies, etc) and talk about how I organize my craft space.

    I love your stamp space! It certainly is well organized. Are those all of your stamp sets??? Do you have old wooden block sets that you still love and use? How do you determine which sets to keep and what sets to get rid of. Do you sell or donate sets you are no longer using? I need to thin out my stash but don’t know how to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi Donna, Thank you! Yes, those are the majority of my stamp sets. I have a few more stamp sets (maybe 20?) in our basement craft area that I use when crafting with my kids but I do sell or donate many of them. I’ve found that the fewer supplies I have the more creative I am. I’ve kept some I really love like the very old Have a Ball stamp set but otherwise when I get new stamps I get rid of some old ones. If I haven’t used it in a year or have something similar it goes. You can donate them to schools and different groups or sell them at a garage sale or online. The first step is deciding to do it!!

    Jessica, Thank you for sharing your craft space tour with us. Gosh I can’t hardly get into mine at all! I have stamping product ALL over in there it’s actually overwhelming (?) to me, but I have this problem seems if I like something it all of a sudden appears in my house. HAVEN’T figured how it seems to find me. but it does….lol.

    • Hi Linda, I moved into this craft space about 5 months ago and I love it!! My old craft room was bigger and messier and full of stuff I never used. I was overwhelmed walking into it and never wanted to go craft. Now I walk in, I smile & I get right to making!! You really have to decide if you want to be someone who crafts or someone who collects craft supplies. Thin it out, organize it and you’ll be less overwhelmed and more inspired to make things. πŸ™‚

    Wondering how you store your DSP

    • Hi Evelyn,
      Thanks so much for asking. I meant to show you in the video and I forgot. I have a 12×12 Standard Paper Holder from Stamp-n-Storage that I store my 12×12 designer series paper on. I keep it in the packs it comes in and just slit one end of the plastic.

    Thank you so much for this video! First, great job! And your space is excellent!πŸ‘ I am just now in the midst of setting my space up.. again…bcuz it never comes out cohesive. Your video is so beneficial I will return several times going step by step. Really, such a relief; a system I can actually out in place rather than just window shop and wish… I feel like I am overall most inspired by the simplicity; I don’t have to buy an additional 27 boxes, cubbies, stands or folders for my scrap paper πŸ˜‚ who knew? Thank you!!!!!

    • You’re welcome Kim, I’m so glad it helped you! I’ve really found it helpful to sort the supplies I have first and group all like things together. Then you can put them together in drawers, boxes or whatever you have. I’ve always had one spot/bin for my scrap paper that if started overflowing I had to get rid of it. I’ve donated it to neighbor kids, a preschool, other card makers and some I’ve just thrown away. If it stresses you out then you are never going to use it to be creative!

    Hi Jessica! I love your desk. Can you tell me what the measurements are? My desk I am using is pretty small and I feel like I am moving clutter from one side to the other. I would love to have a desk that I could actually work off of! Thanks so much!

  • Geri says:

    Thank you for sharing your work space Jessica. You have shown me that I don’t have to keep everything! I probably have over 100 stamps sets(actually I have a bedroom full of card making supplies, and so many embellishments), I couldn’t use them up in 100 years! How did you decide what to keep? I do give quite a bit away, but it is hard to tell that much is gone. I also have boxes of embossing folders.

    After seeing your neat work space, I know it can be done.
