I think my favorite organizational tip is to use magnets to organize your Spellbinder's Nestabilities. I've come across this in several places and I've seen them mounted on the wall or placed in a binder.

Thanks so much for offering this candy! I've made a post on my blog as well:

My favorite organizational tip is the door hanging shoe racks the plastic ones with see through pockets, they hold loads of things and are made in lots of bright colours x Thanks for the candy, to own this lot would be a dream come true x and I would have to free up some of those pockets too! :@) x Leigh x

Hey, Mer! Hope all is well with you! My favorite organizational tip? Hmmm...if you saw my craft room you wouldn't ask that! I think putting all my cling foam mounted stamps into a three ring binder and labeling them for easy finding is my best tip. I use them so much more now!

Thanks so much for the chance at this yummo candy! :O)

My biggest aha moment was when I decided to inkling all of my wood stamps and turn them into cling mount. I store them in rows of DVD racks inside the new awesome DVD style stamp cases from Stampin up". This has saved me so much room!

FABULOUS blog candy! Thank you so much for the chance to win all these goodies.

My favorite organization tip is the basket my DH altered for me using foam board. He made 12 bins for my copic markers. My next favorite is that I keep a binder with all a sample of all my stamps in it. I have them sorted by theme and am able to quickly flip through to see if I have something on hand for any card giving occasion.

WOW!! What a great candy...I have been a follower for a long time now.. :) You are super talented..I love watching what is new on your blog :) Umm.. let's see.. I have a couple.. I like to color code my scraps, so if I need a piece of cardstock or patterned paper I go to my scraps before going into a new piece of paper.. I also use the little tool chests that you can hang on a wall to hold screws and nails in.. I place my brads, and small embellishments in them and label the outside of the drawer they are in, so they are easy to find.. I also organize my stamped images that are already stamped by company, so if I need an image I go to that section first before stamping up a new image :) Oh I have a button jar too :) all my buttons are in one HUGE jar. That way I sit them on a shelf, you can see all the amazing colors, and when I need one I just reach in and grab the color I need.. :) hope these help.. HUGS

Wow, great blog candy!! I will follow you from this day forth as well as post your link on my blog.

My craft organizational tip would have to be that I've unmounted all my wood stamps and put them on EasyMount, sorted by theme and put them all in Scraponizers with extra acrylic sheets to fit in as much as I can. I then made a master binder with all the images so I could easily find images and know where they are located. It's created a ton of room and now I know what I have and am using my stamps so much more. Happy organizing!!

I have just started creating cards and my collection of supplies and I found that I am a visual person and if I don't see things I forget I have them (out of sight, out of mind) so I store everything in clear containers. My latest find is the small jars that the blueberry pancake syrup comes in from Cracker Barrel Restaurants. They are perfect for buttons, brads, beads and other small items and they fit perfectly in a spice rack (found in a thrift store)on the wall above my desk. (Makes for a great excuse for a breakfast out with the hubby) Right now the restaurant has these jars of honey that come with their pancake special that are even smaller. I use them for my mini brads.
It would be awesome to win your blog candy! (My husband bought me a die cutter with a die to go with it for my birthday.)

What an amazing give-away - thanks for the chance to win.
My best tip is to use old cd cases to put my unmounted stamps in. I stamped the images and used them as labels so I know where to look.

Carly said...

oooh what an awesome blog Candy!
I have two organisational tips for you ....

Firstly I store all my silk/paper flowers, stickers and flat stuff in small photo albums that then slot into a box. I have the spines labelled and then pop the lid on the box and slide them under my desk. Easy to see what I have and easy to get to.

The second organisational tip is ... I have stamped all my rubber stamps and printed out images of all my digis and keep these in a binder. I have them in segments... eg animals, people etc. Easy to see what I have and reminds me that I don't need more ... (well as often he he he)

Hope this helps you ... good luck with organising your space. Its so rewarding when you get it done.

I have long been a follower, but a bad commenter.... I know, shame shame on me. ;)

well for organization, nothing comes close to my file drawers that contain every color of SU! solid cs, each in its own hanging folder. yes, I do have 3 of the extra long ones, and they are STUFFED, but I can immediately go right to the color I want.

all of my buttons are also in jars, but sorted according to colors since I have so many of them. vintage buttons have their own jar.

zehra said...

What a fabulous candy. You Re very generous. I an new in stamping and with little space, I just bought a cubicle bookcase and separated my stamps, colors, punches and dies all in separate baskets to keep track and easy access, also then it looked pretty.

Lee said...

wow! Ive only just started out very recently, so I don't really have any organisation, but I also don't actually need any yet. But reading peoples answers on here, has certainly gave me plenty to think about as my stock grows.

Sorry, I can't yet put you on my blog as i'm still figuring out how to use it :)

Thank you so much for sharing

Sparkly Engineer said...

My best tip is to store things by color. I don't go looking for brads or buttons for a project I root around for something in the right color and go from there. All my Stampin' Up inks, ribbon, bling, embellishments, reinkers, whatever are stored by color in baskets. I have found this to be much easier thank seperating items and adds to my creativity.

KC said...

I'm going to have to go threw and read these tips...they sound great...I don't really have a good new favorite idea is using pickle jars for lil crafty things...for some reason I love pickles right now and have allot of jars ;)
thanks for the chance to win, I blogged about ya and here is my email batman-love at

I was just blog hopping and that is how I got to you. That is a cool candy blog you got. I like the card you had made. Thank you for sharing.
Have a great week :)

Alexandra Lundgren said...

My very favorite storage/organizing tip is using the Bass Pro Shop bags with all the heavy duty ziplocs on rings to store my ribbons and small embellishments by color. It has been the BEST system for these I have found as far as working well for me and being extremely portable! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them!
