I love it when a Craft Room Storage Solution is both cute and practical. Today's, Craft Room Organization Video accomplishes both. These little folders are oh so adorable, but they also store Big Shot Embossing Folders in very functional way.

My favorite part about the whole project is the embossed panel on the front of each folder. The look fabulous and you can see at a glance what's inside.

Note: My Paper Scrap folders are in a drawer, but they could also be stored in a box or container.
Do you love Craft Room Tours as much as I do? It's so fun to peek inside others Craft Spaces. Over the 13 years that I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I've learned lots of tips and tricks for making an attraction, well-organized Craft Room and now I'm ready to share. Grab a cup of coffee, put up you feet and enjoy my Craft Room/Office tour.
Warning: This is a really long post, but it's worth going to the end. I'll be sharing lots of tips for organizing and maximizing your Craft Space.
Did you enjoy the tour? Keep going. I have lots more to share.
Hint: Built in units look and function so much better than random units. My cubed unit was handcrafted, but you can achieve a similar look with Kallex units from Ikea with Inserts from Stamp-n-Storage.
Love this man. Joe has a lot of man hours in this unit. Notice the grooved slots in the center for paper storage. The original plan was to have open shelves for storing card stock, but because of all the window in my craft space I elected to go with closed drawer paper storage.
Kitchen cabinets are a great storage solution for Craft Rooms and Office. Think about what you need to store and then draw up a plan. Hint: My number one tip for an organized Craft Space/Office is to take everything out and determine what will go back in your room and what will be donated, sold or put in the trash.
Do you have an old dresser that you are not using anymore? Consider refurbishing it to fit into your craft space. Hint: Make it a built-in for a custom cabinet look and feel.
My ink pad, reinker, marker unit came from Stamp-n-Storage. They have storage solutions for just about anything you can think of in your Craft Room. The little hanging unit is from Ikea's kitchen section and my mail baskets are from Hobby Lobby.
Cubed units not only utilize lots of vertical space, but they also give you lots of attractive storage options like fabric bins, cute boxes, open storage and cube insert options from Stampin' Storage. Hint: Be sure to label everything for easy retrieval later.
While you are in the planning stages decide how you will arrange your card stock and inks. Does it make more sense to you to organize by color collections or rainbow order? I chose rainbow order for my room, but you may prefer something different.
Make every inch of your space count. Go up whenever you can. Take cabinets to the ceiling. Take advantage of your wall space with shelves and other storage units. Hint: Divide your space up into logical work areas. I have an area for stamping and blogging and another area for cutting and scoring.
Stamps cases are DVD Size. Take advantage of that when planning your stamp storage. Look for bookcases or shelves that are designed for DVD Storage. Hint: Storage can also be decorative. Think about storing pretty embellishments such as ribbon and buttons in Mason Jars.
Within your cabinets and drawers, store like things in bins, boxes, containers or magazine holders. They will be so much easier to retrieve and to find. As an added bonus, taking things off top shelves is much less of a hazard and things don't get shoved to the back never to be seen again. Hint: Your labeler is your friend. Keep it with you during every step of your organization process.
