Today's post is ALL about organizing all the pretty little bits that we all can not get enough of ..... I am completely obsessed with anything and everything that will pretty up my pages and projects !!!
When Laura asked if us Bella Blvd. DT girls had any fun ways to organize I jumped at sharing my fun new way to store all my embellishments !!!
I, like many of you I'm sure, have the most adorable dishes and tins and bins to keep all my pretty bits in but I found that they were taking up TOO MUCH SPACE and I wasn't using them as much as I should. I was teaching a workshop recently and a friend of mine (CTMH consultant Kristine Ponte) had these fantastic storage bins with her. I fell in LOVE and had to have them for myself.
The cart is the VERY popular Raskog kitchen cart from IKEA. It truly is the most amazing cart for storing all your most used favorite craft/scrapbooking supplies. The CTMH containers are the perfect fit and come in 3 different sizes. I mixed the sizes and have essentially (almost) cleared the top of my workspace.
All of my Bella Blvd. embellishments are now kept all together in one medium sized bin (heaven). I love that I can open the lid and they are all there looking up at me, completely organized just waiting to be used. And seriously, how pretty do they look?
I've used one to house all my 6 x 6" AND 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" Core'dinations cardstock pads, rolls of twine and pkgs and pkgs of Core tags too !!!
I added a foam insert and mini plastic storage boxes to a small organizer and filled it with the colors of brads and buttons I use most often. These are all loose and as I open my Bella Blvd. button packages, the rest get sorted into here by color. This makes it so much easier when I go to use them for a project.
I used a medium storage box for bits of twine, die cut packs, sticker sheets, loose flowers and more .....
I've only had this system for a few months .... BUT .... I will absolutely for certain tell you how in love I am so far. I get so excited to sit down beside this pretty cart every time I go to 'work' :))
TFL ..... Talk soon.
