Paper Organization is simple when you have a plan.  Follow these easy steps to get your paper organized and choose the right paper organizing tools for the way you craft. What you’ll need: A “Themes and Sentiments” list 12×12 Dividers Plastic “sticky notes” or paper. I prefer plastic because they are difficult to bend and crease. 12×12 VERTICAL boxes – you can use these for permanent storage or just use them as your “sorting” system. 1 – Create a Themes and Sentiments List This is a list of all of the things you craft about organized alphabetically (NOT to include holidays or seasons) – Baby, Beach, Camping, Travel, etc. Download my example list. 2 – Label your 12×12 dividers Create a label for each of the categories in your Themes and Sentiments list as well as for holidays, seasons, and the rainbow. In the video, I used just a…

Hello everyone, Tiffany Spaulding here from Totally-Tiffany. If you’ve been avoiding attending crafting events because the thought of packing up and unpacking is overwhelming, this blog post is for you. Having the right tools for organizing your supplies “on the go” will be a key to your success at a crafting event. These 5 tools will simplify packing for the event, crafting at the event, and unpacking when you get home. 1. Craft Crate with Apron How does it simplify the process of packing up?  Unlike many of the crop totes that are on the market, the Craft Crate isn’t loaded with dozens of pockets, zippers, compartments, and flaps.  There’s a few pockets and flaps, but not dozens. The apron around the Craft Crate was designed to hold all your basic tools so they are visible and accessible. You don’t have to remember where you put things because you can see everything.…

Getting from Containerize to Organized – Why You Need the 4 Section System and a ScrapRack Hello everyone, Tiffany Spaulding here today from Totally-Tiffany on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been helping crafters, specifically scrapbookers and card makers get organized for just over 15 years.  In that time one thing has remained constant, crafter’s whose supplies are visible and accessible – get more done, craft more often, use more of their stash, experience less frustration looking for supplies, enjoy attending more crafting events AND have a significantly easier time putting their supplies away at the conclusion of a project.  If you want to improve your crafting experience, it’s time to give up the “dig and search” for the “Flip and Find!” Your big question?  “How do I get my supplies visible and accessible?”  The answer is simpler than you might imagine – Embrace the 4 Section System Move your…

There’s Air In There – Maximizing Your Craft Storage Space at Home and Away Hello everyone Tiffany Spaulding here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The most important thing about maximizing storage is using ALL the space you have.  I know you’re thinking, “of course, I’m using the space, it’s full”.  But if you take a look around your room, your closet, even your crop tote, you may find that your space is filled with air. Open Shelving I started with this shelving unit from IKEA, it’s called Fjalkinge.  To maximize your storage space, you’ll want to fill that space from left to right, top to bottom and back to front – L2R, T2B, B2F – that means going vertical if you can and when you can. It’s easier to do than you think. If you have items sitting on your shelf that are different heights, you’ll have a…
