More of my craft area storage

Here are some more pictures of my craft area and the ways that I try to keep organized.

This is my Cropper Hopper Rolling Organizer which I purchased from Michaels. It was 50% off then I used a 25% coupon on top of that…. can’t beat that.

The first few drawers have some of my tools like my Corner Chomper, popdots, adhesives, double sided tapes. Then a drawer for stamping stuff….blocks, sponges, embossing pillow. The last few are for the rest of my inks.

This is the ink I use most often and it sits on top of my table in a Sizzix Die Holder that I found at a local thrift shop for $2. Can you believe it…. only $2 I couldn’t believe my eyes. Then next to that is a old cassette holder that I picked up for .50 cents at a garage sale, I just cut pieces of a cereal box and made shelves for my Memento Dew Drops.

Here is my new OttLite Desk Lamp I got it at Costco for $20….love it!!

These are my Copics they sit in paint brush holders from the dollar store and my Bic markers in a case I paid $1 for at a craft shop.

This is one of my favorite ways to keep my Spellbinders Dies organized. Avery Sheet Protectors 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 and Binders work great for these and many other items. I use them to store my stamps as well which I will post pictures of another day.

I kept the original folder and removed the tape and the Die from the back.

Next I opened the folder added a new piece of dbl sided tape and a piece of magnet, then slid them into the pockets. Perfect fit they just need a piece of Velcro at the top to close them.

I keep the rest of my stuff for the Cuttlebug in an Iris Card Keeper Box found at Michaels. I took out most of the dividers placed my folders in the front with the small dies and my Fiskars Embossing Plates and A,B,C plates in the back.

In an upcoming post I’ll show you my stamp storage.

Happy crafting.

Sympathy Cards

Here are a couple of Sympathy cards that I made just recently for a friend. It’s never easy losing someone but it is a part of life and doing the job I do it happens far too often.

That’s why it is so important that you tell the people you love … how much they mean to you. With that said for those near and dear to me and those afar I love and miss you all.

And here are some that were made digitally
