Craft Room Organization; Part 3- Wall Storage


Just hanging around!
 
In my case having a small space means having to be creative with storage!  Look no further than the walls!  Although, even if I had a big room I would still use the walls.  My goal here with creating my "creative space" is to see all my crafty things.  I'll get to my "open shelving" soon;) Ikea is ideal for the look I'm trying to achieve.  My room has wood, glass and metal.  And the galvanized wall storage at Ikea fit my vision and my wallet.
 
My stencils!  I had them all on one small ring like for keys.  UGH flipping through them drove me NUTS!  When I was getting all my $3 bars and S Hooks it dawned on me to hang them up!
Now each stencil is on it's own hanging free of each other and hooking into each other.  I can see all the patterns and when one jumps out I simple grab it.  What a dream!  Using S Hooks to hang your stencils is a winner!
This trio of 22" bars hang right behind me so turning around to grab when I need is effortless.  These long metal baskets are a steal at $5.  Holding my tapes, glue dots and favorite ribbon is readily available.
The last bar holds my goodies I use often including tool, distressing and water crushes. 
At my desk are these 39" bars.  This is my high use stuff including 2 buckets, $5 each holding my misters, glue and scissors.  I even have my heat gun hanging with an S Hook!
Not to mention each basket holds my distress paints, stains and glitter. I have space to add one more when I need more storage.
I use ALL of these!
One of my first decisions was to have these big metal pieces to hold all my Movers and Shapers!  I LOVE this system.  I can see all my magnetic dies. 
 
They sold me 2 displays for $10 each since they had no stock. What a deal! These were cheap anyway at $16 each. 
 
I love all my Cargo Stencil numbers trimming the bottom. 

My husband attached 2 anchors one each wall to create a long wire for my tags.  This is 12' of display space.
 
Now my desk is free of all storage.  All this room to create.
 

Thanks for checking out Part 3- Wall Storage!  More to come!

  1. Looking great! I too have a tiny room, which I share with a dresser, bookshelves, a file cabinet, and an exercise bike. Very frustrating! I just got a Cameo but still use my E2 - I have to keep moving them to use one or the other. And if I take my laptop in there to use my Cameo, I have no deskspace for it plus the project I"m working on. Someday I hope to make the room all mine!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…
