Project Life: Storage Ideas

Hello there scrappy peeps! How are you? I just wanted to pop by quickly and share some ways for storing your Project Life supplies. I found all of these super creative ideas over at Pinterest.  Where else?  Hee hee!

First up is this bright yellow picnic-style basket.  So simple and pretty.  The stickers are in the back, papers in the front, and there is still room for the 3x4 cards and corner rounder.

This next idea is simple, cheap, and easy to find.  The container is a decorative box.  Inside, there are two plastic trays for rounding up the 3x4 cards and pens.  To the side, she has stacked some 6x6 paper pads.  And in front an even smaller box holds adhesive and a date stamp.

This next scrapper had her husband build her a divided box with plenty of room for stickers, 6x6 paper pads, tags, washi tape, and both size project life cards. Her date stamp and two ink pads are even tucked away up front.

I love this next idea: an acrylic box.  I saw one of these in the kitchen section at Target last week.  It is the perfect size for storing the 3x4 cards.  I especially like how she created dividers to sort her cards.  This would work well for your leftover ScrapRoom cards.  You could divide them by manufacturer.

These lovely metal containers are sold at Land of Nod.  Aren't the colors fabulous?  I picture the 3x4 cards in the front sections and the larger cards and stickers in the back.  You could also include small embellishments in one of the front sections.  So, so fashionable!

This scrapper used a vintage looking metal basket to corral her supplies.  Sticker books and 6x6 paper pads on the left, larger sticker sheets in the back, and cards in another basket up front.  

This next idea is perfect for those of you who don't have a place to keep your supplies out in the open. This Close to My Heart plastic box is the perfect size for both 3x4 and 4x6 cards.  And look how many it holds.  Wow!  It would easily fit into a cabinet or closet, and could travel well for crops, too.

This next idea is truly ingenious!  This person used a variety of trays and boxes to fill a drawer with her project life supplies.  Not only does she have her paper supplies in there, but so is her trimmer, adhesive, scissors, rounder, stamps, and washi tape.  What a fantastic use of space!  And convenient if it is in the dining room or kitchen area, too.

And I saved the best for last!  A Project Life cart!!!  This little beauty is the Raskog Cart from Ikea.  You can store all your cards, papers, embellishments, tools, etc. on the cart and then just roll it where you need to.  When you are finished with your page, you can roll it away for storage.

And these Antonious inserts from Ikea fit perfectly in the trays of the Raskog cart.  The best part, though, is that they cost $3.00.  Crazy, hun?  Even if you don't want or need the cart, you could just get the trays.  They are the perfect size for the 3x4 and 4x6 cards.  

Here's my Raskog cart with a few of my supplies on it.  I still have more to add.  And I'm also planning to create some dividers to better organize the cards.  So far, so good!

So, what's your favorite way to store your Project Life supplies?  Leave me a comment.  I'd love to hear!
