CRAFT STORAGE IDEAS
From Elisabeth Hogarth
“I am a clean and tidy crafter and love organising my Graphic 45 supplies almost as much as I enjoy creating with them.
Over the years, I have moved my supplies into clear containers because it makes it easier to remember what I have, and where I have stored it. I use general household storage boxes for stamps and dies. Plastic egg boxes for ink daubers and make-up drawers for embossing powders and glitter glues.
The versatile Graphic 45 Hybrid ink pads are stored in an Ikea drawer that sits snugly inside a kallax shelf unit. I enjoy making swatches of the new products when they arrive because it serves as an instant reminder of the colours and variety I have.
I use simple tower storage boxes to store the smaller embellishments and tags.
On the whole, I store papers and cards vertically.
I have also discovered that simple document sliding binders work well with loose 12×12 papers because they hold them in place and the spine can be labelled.
I then store the smaller paper offcuts with the Graphic 45 Journalling cards and Ephemera in separate clear pockets.
I have a 12×12 box frame on the wall which frames an upcoming project that I want to work on. It inspires me and it makes me think about how I want to work with the designs. I also enjoy displaying my finished projects around me, until it is time to send them to friends and family.

Happy organising and happy crafting!”
