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. Always enjoy seeing how other get organized. There’s such a nice selection of tools to help us with this somewhat daunting task! Thanks Nina Marie!

  2. Why have I never thought to flip my magazine holders on their side? Super smart idea to access your papers.

  3. Thanks I need some tips. I am not organised at all! Items are just stuffed in drawers and boxes for me. It all looks so so pretty.

  4. Great organization ideas! I think I need some of those stamp pockets….quite tired of the wear on some of the other types. Thank you for sharing ♥

  5. Another great use for the Altenew storage pockets is for 6×6 paper storage. You can keep your paper scraps together with the matching paper (instead of having them fall out of the pads). You do have to remove the pads from the glue and cardboard backing, but the pockets protect them.

  6. Great storage ideas. What is the sleeve you are using to store each color of paper within the Interdesign magazine holder? I love how each color is stored within the larger magazine holder.

  7. I love watching craft organization videos. I would really live to see a craft room tour of your place Nina. Great ideas!

  8. Always like to see new storage tips. I have my card stock papers in magazine holders already and separate them with a piece of cardboard.

  9. Thanks for these great ideas for organizing. I’m always ready for new ideas. Especially like the interdesign shelving.

  10. I am always interested in seeing ideas for storing and organizing my craft supplies. Thank you for the ideas.

  11. Your tips have motivated me to take a long look at my craft space. I tend to want everything within reach, so my table is always a mess. Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. Love all of your storage suggestions! I have that Ranger box for my alcohol inks and love it!! They used to be just on a shelf in my Studio and now they are organized!! I also have so many Interdesign pieces!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. No matter how many times I re-organize,
    I always seem to find new ways to
    keep things out so I can see them
    while cutting down on clutter.
    Thanks for your ideas.

  14. Great tips Nina. I just bought the Tim Holtz tin for alcohol inks. I don’t have 30 colors yet but I am sure it will come to that. Have a great day!

  15. I am not sure craft room and organisation really go together in a sentence for me!! In my dreams, yes. In reality? Rarely. Some good tips here and I like that waves cutting plate. Hugz
