Organization Week: Products to Organize Your Scrapbook Supplies

For me, this is the really fun part about organizing – organizational products! I love all the wonderful products out there created just for the purpose of organizing. And probably just as much, I love to repurpose items from around the house to organize my supplies. Let’s take a look at some of the options that are out there, or perhaps right there – already in your home!

When selecting organizational products it is best to think about your own taste as well as how you work. Do you like your products to be visible and easily accessed? If so, you might want to consider clear containers or open baskets. If you prefer your supplies to be tucked away, out of sight for a neater, streamlined appearance, you might consider drawer units, cupboards, and solid boxes.

Store on Display

Try these organizational products to store your supplies out in the open.


Consider using a rail and container unit – designed for kitchen use – above your desk to organize scrap supplies as Mou Saha does.

Simply hang supplies on a coat rack for both a fun and stylish way to organize product.

Wall hooks and clip rings perfectly store ribbon and packaged items, and there are so many types of hooks to choose from. Try a decorative hook, multi-hook, or single hooks lined up in a row. Hang them anywhere: walls, side of a bookshelf, end of your desk – wherever is most convenient for the way you work.

Ribbon spools look beautiful and are easily contained on a paper towel holder.


Spinning racks, such as the Clip It Up, are perfect for so many different types of supplies. I use mine to hold letter stickers and rub-ons.

Carousels are great for organizing so many things. I use a Making Memories carousel to organize some of my smaller embellishments that I like to keep close at hand.

I love to use open baskets to organize supplies – chipboard, stickers, rub-ons, etc. each have their own basket. Baskets offer a big open area for holding your supplies and they are portable, allowing you to take your basket of supplies right to your project.

Keep a long bread basket right where you create for frequently used supplies, such as adhesive.

Nicole Harper keeps all of her “go-to” products in this cool multi-tiered tray from Pottery Barn right next to her work surface. A multi-tiered basket, found in the kitchen aisle would work great too.

A vintage tool box perfectly houses Nicole Harper’s spray ink and could be filled with all sorts of different supplies.

Organize supplies in trays placed on shelves. The trays are portable and can be brought right over to your project.


Clear, lidded jars are perfect for storing items that you want to keep visible and dust free. Megan Hoeppner uses these cute little glass jars for her itty bitty supplies such as brads and buttons.

Wall mount shelving units are a great way to utilize wall space to store your supplies. Laura Vegas uses this shelf to store her paint.

Create your own tray type shelves using sections of rain gutters. Have your local home-improvement store cut the gutters to size and simply cap the ends and mount them on your wall.

Paper trays store your paper flat, which prevents warping or curling, and there are many styles of 12 x 12 paper trays available. Laura Vegas organizes her cardstock using clear paper trays.

Repurpose an old soup or coffee can for holding supplies, like this pencil cup my daughter made for me. These could hold buttons, brads, beads, etc. Decorate yours to coordinate with the décor of your creative space.

Try mini buckets for mini supplies like brads, eyelets, beads and such.

Small embellishments can be easily organized in magnetic spice canisters. I keep mine on a magnetic blackboard above my desk.

Store Tucked Away

Try these organizational products to store your supplies out of sight.

Closets are a great place for scrap supply storage. Why not put all those great closet organizing products to use!  This multi-tiered pants hanger is perfect for holding ribbon spools.

Store page kits in plastic zipper bags and hang them from trouser hangers.


Add clip rings or curtain hooks to a towel bar or a simple curtain wire, to organize ribbon, stickers and much more.

Small wooden drawer units meant for use in garden sheds work great for organizing markers as well as small embellishments. Plus you can pull out the drawers to take right to your project.

Digi scrapper Joey Manwarren uses this sleek workbench to organize her traditional supplies, and keeps tabs on what’s in each drawer with magnetic labels.

Customize drawers with individual drawer liners, to organize all sorts of supplies. These long clear liners were really made for organizing silverware, but they work perfectly for border strips too! Remember to measure the inside of your drawer before heading to the store. It also helps to take a tape measure to the store as the containers may not have the dimensions marked on them.

I’ve lined a basket with canning jars to hold my flowers, organized by color. I store another basket on top of this one which acts as a lid over the flowers keeping the dust away.

Try organizing patterned paper in hanging paper files as Megan Hoeppner does. These files would also work well for stickers, rubons, and other non-dimensional supplies.

Vertical files are also a great way to store patterned paper and cardstock.

3-ring binders filled with pocket sleeves make organizing smaller embellishments a synch. Plus they are very easy to transport wherever you want to scrap. It’s easy to organize your embellishments by color or theme with 3-ring binders.

Now that we’ve looked at some specific products to organize your supplies, let’s take a look at some creative spaces for more organizing inspiration!

Megan Hoeppner’s creative space.

Laura Vegas’ creative space. You can see even more of Laura’s space on her blog.

Mou Saha’s creative space. Check out this video tour of Mou’s space for even more inspiration.

Mandy Douglass’ creative space. Mandy also has a video tour of her space.

Nicole Harper’s creative space. You can see even more on Nicole’s blog.

My own creative space, which you can see more of on my blog.

As you can see, there are so many creative ways to organize and contain your supplies. Check your kitchen, garage, and garden shed for containers that you can repurpose for your scrap supplies. If you’re shopping for new, make sure you check the kitchen, bath, garden, and tool aisles for useful containers.

We’d love to hear how you organize your supplies too! Let us know in the comments for your chance to win a copy of The Organized & Inspired Scrapbooker, a Creating Keepsakes Embrace Your Space Hanging Embellishment Tote, or a set of Creating Keepsakes Hanging Craft Small Storage Drawers!

P.S. Give yourself permission to let go of things that you really won’t use and free up some room, both physically and mentally, to focus on the things that really get you excited to scrapbook! Decide which products to keep, and which products to let go of, by taking the product organization quiz on Club CK!

    Great ideas ! Lots of inspiration here. I also appreciate looking at this organization issue from the two viewpoints of seen vs. hidden storage.
