Question I am building a new studio from scratch...wanna help? :D

We are moving and I get to build a new studio!

I would love to hear from anyone who has had a storage solution work really well for them. Here is some of the products I use regularily:

-3 cutters
-lots of ribbon: embellishments, rub-on's, flowers, etc
-lots of big tools: tag maker, Xyron, sewing machine, punches, light table
-lots of little tools: scissors, adhesive, etc
-LOTS of 12x12 patterned paper
-60 SU! sets
-500+ unmounted stamps: acrylics and red rubber
-SU! ink and lots of other ink too: Clearsnap, Ranger, refills for all listed, Colorwashes
-lots of 3-D/alterable items ready to be stamped
-magazines/idea books
-a space to actually display some of the things I have made!
-packing/shipping center

Whew, I am sure there is more....

I will post progress on my blog and if I incorporate your idea you will get some goodies from me!

Thanks to anyone who helps me build my dream studio!

How exciting - getting that new stamping area put together. My husband built me 2 rooms in our basement for stamping. One is for my personal use/storage area and the other for classes/camps. Some of my storage solutions:

-Tall, white cabinets with doors that I purchased at home depot. I have three - 2 housing stamp sets and one for misc. accessories. I can close the doors and see no mess.
-I have a counter top that wraps around 1 1/2 walls for my stamping and one end holds my computer, printer, scanner. I have it sitting on kitchen cabinets bases that I also purchased at Home Depot, some with drawers and some without. Great for lots of storage.
-Rain gutter cut into thirds. I use it for ribbon, but will also add other types of items that aren't too heavy, but don't want sitting on counters or getting lost in the mix.
-In my class room, I have four old window pains (6 panes ea) that I use to mount cards or cardfronts to for display.
-I purchased wire cardstock racks from an online company for both 12x12 and 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.

I hope this helps give you a few ideas. Have a great time decorating that room.

I am using slatwall with acrylic shelves to display my non-stampin up Stamps. I use a pantry for my stampin up stamps, and I also use the slatwall for my punches, tools, etc. I use cabinets with roll out file drawers for my paper.

I use different baskets to organize my craft room and they just make everything look so beautiful, yet easily accessible. Also, if you ever change your organization area or room, you can just take those same baskets and organize your bathroom, bedroom or family room (this cannot be said for many organizational tools that are more crafty-looking).

So, here are the baskets I use:

SPRING BASKET: This is my favorite - I have two in my craft room and with the four way divided protector, I organize all my scissors, hand-held punches, rulers, stylus tool, bone folder, pencils, anything that can stand on its end (not markers). What makes this even better is that if you need to bring it to a different room (or to a crop/make/take), you just pick up the handle and go!

MARKET BASKET: LOVE it to store stamps by theme or if you like to pack up a project and travel - just fill it up with inks, stamps, markers, glitter or whatever and go! Another favorite use it to store my background stamps in this basket since I like to keep them at my fingertips more than regular stamps.

LUNCHBOX BASKET or LETTERTRAY BASKET: these baskets hold all of my card samples (in clear envelopes). I organize by holiday or occasion and they're great for inspiration. I also have a seperate Lunchbox Basket to hold all the cards I've made and am going to give away (sorted by holiday/type). You can store dozens (close to hundreds) in these (depending on how many embellishments you have on the cards).

CATALOG BASKET: Great for storing all of your magazines or stampin' up catalogs.

If anyone would like to order a basket, PM me! As you can tell from my SCS name, I am a Longaberger Branch Leader and basket lover (it's how I fund my stamp habit!). Also, Market Baskets are $20 off in September ONLY!!! That's a BIG sale!

Hope my ideas helped!
