Organize Your Space by Design Team Member Cathy Vongnaraj

One of my "resolutions" is de-clutter my space and organize a lot more effectively, so what better way to start this year off by showing you how I organize the various tidbits in my craft room.

I am a typical project lifer, so the things I use are mobile, small sized, and usually found in the kitchen section. For stamps, I use a white storage box from Ikea. I like to "file" through my stamps. The older ones or less used stamps are in my gold and pink binder I found at Target. I use Staples sleeves to hold the stamps. Baseball card ones work great for smaller stamps.

For my gazillion Project Life cards, I use the "file" system as well, but this time I take a medium size tag and label the kits and file by core kits.

For bulky stamps like date stamps, and rubber stamps with handles, I use a colanders and a plastic sectioned container you can find at the Container store or Target. The snowflake one was also found at Target during the holiday season.

photo 9 For even tinier tidbits like flair, paper clips, tags, etc - I put this in the top part of my Raskog cart and use little condiment dishes I found at Pier 1 Imports. The holiday ones I grabbed at Target.

I snapped this photo to show my December Daily assortment (which I am still working on). I found the metal tin dishes at a local antique store. They are mini jello dishes and PERFECT for wood veneers and tags/labels.

I also use sequins - and I absolutely love the egg storage I found at Anthropologie. Its very pricey but I get a lot of use out of it.
photo 12 For my media station, I found this wooden box at Home Goods. Any wooden box would do, but I like the large storage since I can add multiple things in one section.

For tiny buttons and other trimmings, I use the small jars. I label them with pretty washi and my label maker. Large mason jars are great for twine with wooden spools.
photo 14 And lastly, I use this bead plastic storage container you can find at Craft Warehouse in their jewelry section to sort all you wooden veneers. I am a little OCD when it comes to wooden alphas so I sort them by letter!!!

I thank you for taking a peek into my craft room - I hope this post inspired you to organize your room or maybe even find some other different ways to store your goodies!

  1. Awesome ideas! I just bought myself a label maker for Christmas and I'm very interested in learning how you were able to use the washi tape with it! So much fun! :)

    1. Hi Mendi!! What I did was put the washi down first, and then used a clear label maker and laid it on top! So its 2 layers :)


Thank you for your feedback! We love hearing from you!
