Organizing Tip: Cling Stamps & 6×6 Paper Pads!

Good Morning!  Today I’d like to share with you one of my favorite organizational products ever!  And it just happens to be the My Acrylix Organizers from Close to My Heart!

ctmh container6As a former consultant for 5 years (and my best customer), and having been a loyal customer ever since, I have amassed quite the My Acrylix stamp collection!  I absolutely LOVE the quality and versatility of the clear cling stamps–and with the CTMH My Acrylix organizers the stamps are so easy to store and access quickly when I want to sit down and craft.  The containers are stackable, have a hinge-top lid with a handle (so you can pack up your favorite sets easily for crops!), and they retail for only $14.95 each. ctmh container1I have added to my container storage as I have added to my stamp collection and it has been well worth the investment to have a cohesive place to keep all my stamps neatly (especially since my craft room is also our family dining room). ctmh container2

Each container stores 15 CTMH stamp sets right in their envelopes!  ctmh container3

And if you have collected other brands of cling stamps, you can make them fit to flip through them and store them in the containers as well.  I ordered Avery Elle clear stamp envelopes to store my sets where the plastic packaging had ripped and they fit right in! ctmh container4

I have also recently discovered that my hoard of 6×6 paper pads will also fit inside of these handy storage boxes–which opens a whole new world of organizational possibilities!  Think about putting together little “kits” with these boxes to make pulling one down and crafting quick and easy without having to dig through your whole stash!  For example, you can put your Fall 6×6 pads, stamp sets, and a few embellishments all in one organizer!  (Each organizer comes with 2 removable dividers that create 3 sections inside.)  ctmh container5

I hope that you learned of a useful product on the market today that will help you get organized and therefore make it easier to access and use more of your stash!  I really couldn’t live without these and it’s a system that really works for me!

Happy Crafting!

Finally found a Washi storage system that works!

So I have been on the hunt for a storage system for all the Washi tape I have accumulated. I started out in one drawer and that worked for a while but I quickly outgrew that. Washi was everywhere! You might remember my post a few weeks ago about my project life card storage using the Close To My Heart Medium organizer cases. Well those worked out so well that I got a couple of large organizers for my stamps. Those cases stacked up perfectly which made me think of the small organizer and my washi dilemma. I wasn’t too sure if my washi would fit or the rolls would be a little too big so I took a chance and ordered just one of the cases. I was so excited everything fit perfectly with a little room to spare height wise.

So now that I found that these cases work I am going to order a couple more to fit the rest of my collection (yes that was only half of my washi) in the case that I pictured I have a total of 116 rolls, some are wide washi rolls so it could fit more or less depending on the size of your washi tape. I also plan on getting one more along with the insert and small boxes so that I can organize my smaller embellishments like wood veneer.

If you would like to see these cases with the washi a little closer check out THIS youtube video.
