My Stamping Space and Framelit Storage Solution

We had an old white board laying around, so I decided to try an idea I've seen a couple other Stampin' Up! demonstrators do to organize their framelits (thank you for the idea Wendy Waldman and Yapha Mason).  In the past, all my framelits were stored in the plastic envelope they came in, so I'd have to search envelope by envelope to find the one I wanted.  Now, I  only need to glance up on the wall above my Big Shot.  I put one-inch magnetic strips across the white board and my framelits stick quite nicely to the magnet.


Below is a close-up of the board:


When we moved into our current home 2 1/2 years ago, this spare bedroom was our reading room.  In fact, my husband Tom had a comfortable recliner in the corner where he would read and listen to music.  But, as I got into stamping and needed more space, the room morphed into what it is today.  First, Tom installed Elfa shelves and drawer units in the closet for me.  It seemed like a lot of room -- for a while.  Below is a photo of the closet.


We got a sturdy work table also from the Elfa system at the Container Store.  The table is perfect when I stamp and plan, but it is too low (causing a backache) for all the cutting I was doing for my classes.  


And, that's why I moved into the other corner of the room with a higher work area (for my paper cutter and Big Shot), lots of storage, and great lighting.

Tom's reading chair was moved into a corner of our bedroom, and he is very happy reading there.  I think I have enough stamping space now, but my friend and upline, Pennie, laughed.  I think she knows something I don't know...

  1. Hi Tina! Thanks for sharing your stamping room. I love to get ideas from others. But I'm laughing with Pennie :-) ...... There's never enough space once you start accumulating stamping stuff! We love our treasures, don't we!

    1. Hi Carol! Yep, somehow my stamping supplies keep growing. It's hard to part with some of the items as they retire. Sigh!
