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 ideas and tips for storage. I do like the storage pockets from Altenew and the Ranger tins are probably a must have, too!

  2. We are building a new house, where I’ll have my own craftroom, yeah!!! Video’s like these give me so much inspiration to get organized. Where as for now… I’m crafting on the kitchen table and store everything in the garage ?

  3. Thank you for the great tips. Personally, when I am not organized, I am not all that productive. Having just recently gotten into alcohol inks, I needed a way to store those little (err, rascals) bottles. ?

  4. Great ideas! I recently put all my cardstock into plastic holders like JMcG showed and have yet to stand them up where they belong. Getting there. :)

  5. Thanks so much for the great storage ideas!! I especially like that new alcohol ink tin! :) Organization is my favorite!!!

  6. Great storage tips! I’d love to get some of those envelopes to keep my stamps and die sets together. Your craft studio is fantastic and so organized!

  7. Great tips–I recently purchased from the large altenew bags, they are terrific! I’ve been debating about the alcohol ink box, as I have more than 30 colors, with all the mixatives. I have limited shelf space, so still working on that issue.

  8. Great tips. What are you using to protect your paper before you store it in the Linus file folder?

  9. Good storage ideas. I’m looking for a way to store all the Distress inks I have. My husband made a shelf insert for the Distress inks I have that fit in my bookcase, but now I have the Oxide inks and want shelving on my desk so I can grab them easily. Any recommendations?

  10. Your studio looks fabulous! I love how you’ve stored the Nuvo drops. Like you said, I did think of storing the Nuvo drops in the Tim Holtz alcohol inks tin. Glad you said that :)

  11. These are great ideas, I’m working on organizing my craft room now. I keep moving things over and over again!

  12. Thanks for sharing the organization tips! My crafting space desperately needs help and, like you, I want to see it out. I like seeing my supplies and also out of sight = out of mind for me :)

  13. Love these storage solutions Nina. Half the fun of crafting is keeping all of this stuff contained and well organized for easy access. The zipper pouches would be handy for many items. (I don’t have any Nuvo drops or alcohol inks, but the tin and clear trays would be awesome for that.)

  14. Great tips for storage. Someday I will have a dedicated space just for crafting, but in the meantime these products would really be a god send for orginazation.

  15. Thank you for the tips. What do you put your card-stock in? Looks like some kind of thick plastic folder. Please clarify, Thanks

  16. I really appreciate all these ideas, because I’m finding more and more that I need the organization in order to be able to craft well. Things are disappearing if I don’t have a good way to keep them organized!
