Organizing your Embellishments

I don't know about you but I'm always rearranging my studio space to make room for the new additions. This week, I need to find the perfect spot for my new Big Shot. Love it, by the way, it's so easy to use, even my 4 year old was cranking out circle Nesties and embossing like a pro! I had picked up a few things from the Die Cuts R Us store so when my Big Shot arrived, I was ready to use it.

One of my favorite things to organize my itty bitty parts (brads, eyelets, googlie eyes, acrylic jewels, hardware, etc.) is this goodie that I found at The Container Store.

It sits on my side table, backed against an armoire, doesn't take up a lot of space and all my itty bitty parts are easily accessible and labeled. Looking for some ideas to organize your embellishments? Head over to the Die Cuts R Us Design Team blog for some more creative ways to store your stuff! Leave a comment if you have a super way to organize and store your own goodies!

Have you played the DCRU DT challenge yet? This week's theme involves layering embellishments on your card, scrapbook page or project. There's still time to enter so come on and give it a try!

Cara, love your organizer, I am always reorganizing, lol. At the moment I am making more room for my Copics and air-compressor that will arrive soon. In answer to your question on my blog, "Is it easy?". I have used a regular air brush so I was not totally blind going into this, it is different and has some of its own little challenges, the hardest thing for me has been getting the spray direction right, but if you play with it, it all comes. One of the tricks of any airbrush is masking. There are a lot of tutorials, just google for Copic Airbrush Tutorials and it will give you an idea of its simplicity. Have a great day. Hugs

Hi Cara, your organizer is great, and I loved your idea about the Ikea racks for the punches, but now that you have your Big Shot you won't be using them as much. The Spellbinders Nestabillities are like getting 5 punches all in one! You will love it! Stop by my blog, I left something for you there.
