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!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…
