Did you know, on the bottom of each stamp pad is a sticker in four different languages stating the color of each stamp pad?
I put one on the front edge of my stamp pad lid. This tells me the color name while it is stored in my color cady.
I then cut the ends off of a second label and place them on the side lid near the pad. The reason I do this is so that when I am using multiple stamp pads I can quick see what color I am using. Many of our stamp pads look the same while open.
All crafters want a sneak peak into other crafters spaces. I am in the process of reworking my studio to make it more functional for classes, open crafting time and well lets be honest just for myself!
I love to use embossing folders – it gives such a great look and adds such a wow factor to my projects. My embossing folders are not store in any special way.
I do use my super handy personal labeler (it’s so old!) and add the name of the folder on the front of the embossing folder. I do this one for me – it let’s me flip through quickly to find a specific name. I will admit they are not perfectly alphabetized, but close.
You might notice a little yellow dot on some of the folders. Really, its for me. It’s a quick way that I document when a folder, punch, die or stamp set is retired.
I was recent asked about some of my storage solutions for my studio. Although I am in the middle of revamping several of my own storage solutions and studio design, I’ll share a few of my storage solutions.
I don’t have a good storage solution for my cardstock. It’s because of the way that my current cabinets are designed. However, based on this; the way I store my cardstock works well.
I picked up these file boxes at Wal-Mart or Staples. I currently use three of them to hold my cardstock. I have each color placed in a file folder and labeled with an actual sample of the paper. I prefer to do it this way so that I can see the actual color – there is no guessing!
I also have two color families per box. The third box is where I house my In-Colors and specialty paper (such as watercolor paper, glossy paper, vellum). On the outside of the box I just printed out a quick list in order of my paper and slapped it on the front. It gives me a quick reference to see what is in each box or for my customers to easily access paper if needed.
