Storage Ideas

I store my stamps in a dvd shelf The ones with the red dots are retired and the yellow dots are hostess sets. Stampin' Up! have these boxes for sale separately so I purchased some for all my older wood sets and they are so much neater now in the new boxes.
I keep the surrounding rubber in the box that way I know when one is missing from the set and it helps me keep track of which stamp goes in which set too.
I also keep my Framelits in the clear stamp boxes. you can fit a few sets in one box sometimes too, I cut all the pieces out of my scraps and stick them on the front so I know what goes in each box and they are easy to find and they look pretty too.
I stick a piece of magnetic photo paper into the inside of the box and it hold the framelits still and keeps them tidy.
I added extra shelves into my book shelf to store all my punches now I can grab the punch I need without having to un stack them. There is just enough room between each shelf to get my hand in there. I also found a step shelf for pantries in Kmart to layer the small punches and border punches on the top shelf.

I have these three spinning storage units One is for washi tape and rotary stamps the next one is the Stampin' Up! ink caddy (LOVE THIS) and the other one is my Stampin' Up! stack and store caddy for button , brads and small embellishments.
This is where I store my Stampin' write Markers If you buy the full set you get a nice storage box too which should be stored on its side so the ink doesn't run to one end of the marker. I have had mine for years and they all still work really well.
A4 Cardstock I keep in letter files from office works so I can see all the lovely colours. My embossing folders for the bigshot are just stored in a plastic tub which is easy to just flick through them and find the one Im after. I have another tub of 6 x6 papers that I have cut up.
12 x 12 paper storage rack that I made from cubes the extra shelves are zip tied in place. The big green tub on top hold all my small scrap papers which I often rifle through for small pieces when I need them.
These 12 x 12 plastic packs are great for storing Designer packs of co ordinating papers, I bought them from kmart I think they were in a pack of three for around $3. I find they are great for keeping the sets together and I keep the offcuts in them too until I have used them all up. They are also very handy for scrapbook projects that I'm working on and for crops.

My ribbon spools sit on this shelf from Ikea it has a ridge so that they don't roll off. they are meant to be for photos to sit on but they are great for ribbon and they are easy to install. I did it myself.
I keep all my hand made cards in a Plastic tub that rolls under your bed and have them in categories so I can find what I'm looking for quickly.
I found this cute little shelf in The reject shop this week I keep all my embossing powders, re inkers and glitter in it and it hangs on the wall.
