Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Craft Room Organization

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello everyone, it’s Nina-Marie back here with you again and I have a few craft room organization quick tips for you! I know most of us love looking for fresh, new ways to organize our creative spaces and I hope today’s video helps you with that task!

In the video I will be sharing some of my most-favorite organization ideas, including…

Paper storage with the InterDesign Magazine File Holder. I love these units so much for holding my cardstocks. I keep each individual color of cardstock in a plastic file sleeve; those sleeves are then stored inside the Magazine File Folder. I keep the folders tucked onto my built-in bookcase sideways; this allows me to see all the colors and easily access the paper. I can fit approximately 12-15 individual colors of 100lb cardstocks in these Magazine File Folders.

Another storage idea is for Alcohol Inks. Ranger and Tim Holtz recently debuted their handy Alcohol Ink Storage Tin; this is a definite must-have for your little bottles of ink!

I really like the lockable lid, so nothing can fall out of the tin. The inks also fit nice and snug inside, which makes this a very secure method of storing Alcohol Inks. You can store 30 inks inside the tin. If you don’t have alcohol inks, you could also store Enamel Accents, Stickles, Distress Oxide refills, or other similar sized bottles into these tins (Nuvo Drops will not fit!).

But if you are looking for a way to store your Nuvo Drops, then you may want to check out these cute InterDesign Tiered Compartments. I love using these for all my Nuvo Drop bottles, Shimmer Powder bottles, Distress Ink refills, and more. It maximizes my storage space and also displays them beautifully! I’m of the mindset that craft supplies double as decor too! ;)

My final organization idea is using the Altenew Medium and Large storage pockets for both stamp and die storage, but also as project organizers! I love how thick and sturdy these are;  in my opinion, they will last you for forever. I’ve often had to replace other storage pockets because they wear out depending on how hard they are used. I’ve yet to replace a single pocket, and I have been using them for almost a year.

Be sure to see the video to find out how I use them for keeping my in-progress projects organized!

I hope that a peek at some of my favorite storage solutions for crafting supplies has helped you find new organizational ideas for YOUR creative space! Thanks for joining me; I’ll be back soon with more inspiration for you!

  1. Great storage ideas! Love the alcohol inks storage case & I think craft supplies really do double as awesome decor!

  2. THANK YOU for sharing!
    Your Nuvo drop collection looks DELIGHTFUL!
    … I confess my stash is in a MESS and I am frantically searching for my missing “A” die … hoping to find it one day but not holding out much hope at the moment, certainly a good incentive for me to get myself SORTED :)

  3. Thank You, I have been on such a shopping spree for such a long time, that putting all this stuff has not been my priority so it has gotten so out of hand and now I have a mess on my hands, I need some serious help, maybe this will be a start, wish I could hire someone.

  4. I love an organised craft space. I’ve got one of the alcohol ink storage tins on order for my perfect Pearls. Honestly I probably need more than 1…. don’t tell the bank manager.

  5. Great storage ideas. It’s always good to see what’s new out there and might work better than what I do now.

  6. Great storage idea! I love these organizational tips. You always learn something new or get ideas for your own craft room.

  7. Absolutely anything I could possibly win from the crafting & stamp companies associated with Altanew’s 4th Anniversary giveaway is greatly appreciated. I’m a newbie to the stamping world and in the 8 short months that I’ve been shopping for stamps and stamping supplies I am hooked and cannot get enough of cool new quality stamps/supplies.

  8. Great ideas!! Please tell us how you store your stamp pockets once you have stamps in them!!

  9. I’m always looking for effective ways to store my projects-in-progress. Thanks for sharing your method, and for sharing your lovely craft room with us! (I have to admit some envy for that collection of Nuvo drops and alcohol inks! ;-))

  10. Thanks for the great ideas! I’m always looking for items to keep me organized. I love the tray for the Nuvo drops.

  11. Great ideas – thanks so much! I definitely agree with you that craft organisation is also decor! Back when ribbon was popular I had glass jars with my ribbons by colour – so so pretty!

  12. Really enjoyed this video, just my kind of thing. I’m currently in the process of having a craft desk, draw unit and storage tower as my new house isn’t big enough to hold my craft room anymore, so I’m just starting to compact items, ideas like this will be excellent x Thank you Nina x
