We always love to see what y’all do with our papers, how you store them, cut them up, and display your final projects. Today, Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Cal Summers opens the door to her #G45CraftRoom and shows us her storage tips and tricks. Along with organization tips, Cal shares her beautiful shelf that displays all of her gorgeous G45 projects! With so much inspiration we hope this video tour gets your creative gears turning.

“How do you do your craft room? Mine is very typical – a big hot mess BUT I do take very good care of my projects and my stash.
Come with me and I will take you on a tour of the tidy bits of my craft space – and I want to start by showing you where I keep my G45 projects.
This is what I see every time I sit down to craft – how lucky am I! The shelves above my desk are just filled with my favourite projects and these are all G45. You can see my #G45Summer project on the left and some embroidery hoops I made in a joint live with another Brand Ambassador Phoebe Tonosaki. I have all my favourite books here including the one I am teaching currently bottom right – my pop up Let it Bee book. Right in the middle of the bottom shelf you can see the first ever minibook I made using Steampunk Debutante. One look at those papers and I was hooked on G45 for life!
I am very organised with my G45 stash. I keep it all in one of the tiered trolleys you can easily get.
In the top tier I keep all my 12 x 12 papers in hoppers as well as my chipboards, stickers and dies. I have two clear bags I keep my Staples and stamps in too.
On the second shelf I keep a box with my ribbons and tags and a bag with all my journaling cards and ephemera packs.
On this shelf I also keep two hoppers with my 8 x 8 and 6 x 6 paper pads in (do you remember the 6 x 6 patterns and solids???)
Finally on the bottom shelf I keep all my albums and frames etc. You can sure see I’m a bit of a hoarder.
Finally – I want to show you my pride and joy. I think we all have a G45 collection we wish we had bought and didn’t. Mine was Cityscapes. I still don’t know why I didn’t get it at the time. But a couple of years ago I saw a lady in the US selling the 12 x 12 paper pad at a price I thought was very reasonable, so I had it sent over and now I feel my collection is complete. Have I cut into it you ask? Well of course not!
I’d love to see how you organise your stash – thank you for taking a look at mine!
Happy crafting everyone!” ~Cal
