A Little Update to my Stamping Space & a Big Shot Bundle Deal from Stampin’ Up!

I’ve recently acquired a few more feet of space in my little stamping area so I’ve redone a bit of my storage.  I thought that I’d share some of the storage ideas with you since we’re all short on space to store our many stamping supplies.  :)

My Stamp Room Paper Storage - Stamp With Amy K

I gained a few square feet on the right side of my stamping table so I added more of the Kallax (formerly Expedit) shelving units from Ikea.  This time I wanted shelving that was close to table height so that I could store some of my commonly used items on it.  I purchased a 4-cube and an 8-cube unit (placed the 8-cube unit on its side) and added some doors and drawers to 4 of the cubes.

My Stamp Room Paper Storage 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I redid my paper storage after seeing a video that Jennfier McGuire created and I love it!  It’s very inexpensive and it keeps all of my paper within quick reach.

My Stamp Room Paper Storage 2 - Stamp With Amy K

For my 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper, I store the paper by color family in a magazine holder that is turned on its side.  I purchased the Like It Magazine Files from The Container Store and I have one for each of my color families, one for the In Colors and one for specialty paper like Vellum, Naturals card stock, Shimmery White, etc.

My Stamp Room Paper Storage 3 - Stamp With Amy K

To keep my card stock together, I purchased 9″ x 12″ Job Ticket Holders (you can find them at any office supply store, I got mine at Office Depot) and I trimmed the ends with the loop off.  I added a label that I printed with a label maker for each color.  I love that I can store a full pack of 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper plus scraps in each folder!

My Stamp Room 12x12 Paper Storage - Stamp With Amy K

For my 12″ x 12″ paper storage, I purchased the Cropper Hopper Paper Holders and the Cropper Hopper Dividers that fit inside the Paper Holders.  I added labels for the paper types that I created with the label maker on these folders too.

My Stamp Room Blendabiltities Storage 1 - Stamp With Amy K

For my Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers, I purchased two of the deflect Desk Cube with X Dividers.  As my marker collection grows, I can add more of the cubes and they clip together to keep them as one unit.

My Stamp Room Desk - Stamp WIth Amy K

I got a new, larger Linnmon Table Top from Ikea and I reused the legs that I had from my smaller table.  I’ve got a simple clamp-on lamp with an extending arm to light up my work space.

My Stamp Room Punch & Stamp Storage - Stamp With Amy K

This is a photo of the other side of my work area where I store my punches, stamps and ribbon.  I did a more detailed blog post about those storage pieces awhile ago and you can check that out here.

And finally here is my “fabulous” photo studio.  ;)  It’s simply two sheets of 12×12 white card stock, a sheet of glass that I removed from an 11×14 frame and two Ott Lites.

I love my new paper storage system.  It keeps everything so neat and accessible, plus it takes up much less room than my old system did.  I hope that you find the storage solutions helpful.  And I’d like to say a huge thank you to Kimberly L. for forwarding me the video that Jennifer McGuire created.  It gave me so may great storage ideas that I’d never thought about!

Fun Kids Artwork Note Cards – Stampin’ Up!

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you probably know that I have a daughter with Autism.  One of her very favorite activities is painting.  She will paint with watercolors, finger paints, regular paints, really any type of paint.  We’ve got stacks and stacks of her little works of art (she can do 4-5 in a given session) and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with all of them.

When my Mother-in-law asked me to make her some note cards with the sentiment that I’d used on my card for World Autism Awareness Day (you can see that card here), I had an idea…and this is what I made for her.
