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!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
