Scrapbooking Supply Storage: Thinking Outside the Box

Hi there! I am excited to be with you today talking about one of my favorite things about scrapbooking—organization! I’ve always said that I love organizing my scrapbook supplies just as much as I love using them. There is something so satisfying about finding the perfect container or the perfect spot in my room for every little paper, embellishment, tool, etc. I often find myself looking for containers, buckets, and baskets no matter where I am!

Fabulous Scrapbooking Storage

Not only do I love great containers, but I love them even more if they can do double duty by looking fabulous at the same time! I think the key to achieving this is to think outside the box when it comes to scrapbooking supply storage and organization. I don’t shop much in the “container” section of the stores. Instead I look for beautiful pieces in the kitchen or home decor areas that will also work for storage. Here is an example:


This is a small jewelry holder that I found at Target in the home decor section. Not only is it super pretty, but it is also perfect as a catch all for little items on my scrap table.

Another example is this:

I found this silver serving piece at a bargain store. It is meant for serving cookies, cupcakes, etc., but I placed some small bowls on it and use it to house lots of little items that I know I will want to use in the near future.

Thrifted Scrapbook Supply Organizers

Lately I have been frequenting the thrift stores and antique shops in my area, and I’ve found some of my most favorite organization pieces of all! At those kinds of stores you can find some of the more unique pieces that you normally might not think to use, but that are the perfect scrapbook storage solutions.

For example, I bought this old tool box and it sits near my scrap table to hold my current Studio Calico kit while I am using it. This way all of my papers and alphabets are in one spot and it helps keep them contained, but it also looks really cool.


Here are some other storage ideas I love:

This old muffin tin is great for storing little things that you want to keep out in view.

I am slightly obsessed with vintage milk glass dishes, and this one is perfect for storing my markers.

This little pink basket was found at an antique store for just a few dollars and I love how pretty it is!

Paper Organizers Hanging on the Wall

And finally, a favorite of mine are these metal baskets. I have had them for years and they have moved with me from house to house because they work so well for paper and sticker storage and they are cute at the same time! I spray painted them white and hung them on the wall behind my scrap table. It’s so convenient to have things I use often right behind me where I can get to them easily.

I hope I have inspired you to think outside the box a bit when it comes to looking for organizational items for your scrapbook or craft room! Remember to look everywhere and I bet you will find something amazing when you least expect it!!

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

  2. But songs of all of these types can and do appear on the Hot 100 formula
    essentially comprises three major ingredients: radio airplay, song sales and
    song streams. That’s because, in its ’60s-to-’80s heyday, Top 40
    radio has largely ignored VW; and their fans seem to buy
    the song or radio programmers to play it. 4 million, a 5 chart music 2013 percent decline from the same week last year, according to Billboard magazine as some form of Top 40
    music.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  8. The great Confucius claimed that every time you open a book, you
    learn something. If you exchange the word “book_ with _post_, then this blog is the same – each time I open it , it teaches me something..

    It’s wonderful that you are getting thoughts from this article as well as from our dialogue made here.

    Hi there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    Open the image you want to edit from your computer or you may specify an image URL from the net. Before it was like having only one specific style but now any kind of layer is being mixing up with it to give a new look. First, you should consider your face shape when you get your hair cut.

  12. Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

    Howdy, I do think your website may be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great website!
