Craft Storage Ideas and CTMH Storage Solutions

Hello, friends! As you may have heard / seen, I have recently joined the popular website, Craft Storage Ideas as part of their Contributor Team. You can find the introductory post HERE.

I am SUPER excited to be part of their team, as I have been a fan of their website for quite awhile and have an absolute passion for organization, particularly for my ever-growing hoard stash of crafting supplies!

I have meant to share more storage ideas / solutions here on my blog (especially since the topic is so near and dear to my heart), but I get so excited about creating, that photos of artwork have trumped the more subtle, behind-the-scenes look at organizing those supplies.

With new, lovely products like those above (available in the new Idea Book, August 1st!), I know that I am going to want it all, and need to either find, or maintain my storage solutions.

So, today I would like to share some of the truly amazing storage solution products that Close To My Heart carries. And the best part is, most of these products have multiple uses!

The first, obvious solution, are the Small, Medium, and Large Organizers:

Small Organizer

The small organizer is 14.5″ x 10.5″ x 2″ and is great for storing the My Acrylix Blocks, Pigment Inks, Sponge Daubers, and the small Craft Containers that can hold a myriad of different small items and embellishments. In fact, if you don’t want your items to move around in the organizer, there are fitted foam inserts (sold separately) that tuck inside! Please watch the short video above for a demonstration of these great boxes. The foam insert for the sponge daubers is shown in the first picture to this post. Someone has actually mounted it to a wall. Genius!

Medium Organizer

The medium organizer is 14.5″ x 10.5″ x 5″ and comes with removable dividers. Great for stacking ink pads and bulky items! This is also perfect for holding journaling cards for the Picture My Life (or any pocket-style scrapbooking, such as “Project Life”)  scrapbooking program. You can also see a demo for this organizer in the video above.

The large organizer is 14.5″ x 10.5″ x 7.5″ and also comes with removable dividers (tabbed dividers are also available separately). This organizer can hold up to 40 of the CTMH My Acrylix Stamp sets! 

See it in action here:

Smaller boxed organizers include: My Acrylix Organizer (holds 15 stamp envelopes), and the craft boxes mentioned above. The craft boxes are sold separately and are not just for fitting into the larger organizers; you can include them in your current organizational system for holding smaller embellishments.

My Acrylix Organizer

For paper / project storage, there are 3 options:

  1. 12′ x 12″ Paper Organizer – sturdy see-through envelopes that protect your papers from rips, wrinkles, and tears. 3 per package.
  2. 6″ x 6″ Paper Organizer – sturdy see-through envelopes that protect your papers from rips, wrinkles, and tears. 3 per package. GREAT for storing paper scraps!
  3. 13″ x 13.25″ Resealable Bags – see-through bags that are good for storing or transporting 12″ x 12″ or smaller papers. 12 per package.
And talk about ink pad storage! This organizer was made specifically for CTMH stamp pads. Unlike our other storage options, which are quite universal, this solution may not fit all sizes of stamp pads. But if you own a lot of CTMH inks, this is a wonderful storage option! This tower swivels, so that all sides are easy to access. It holds 60 stamp pads and 76 markers (Exclusive Inks markers; not the new ShinHan Markers), and extra accessories (i.e. a re-inker tray) can also be added to the tower, or purchased separately (i.e. extra stamp pad towers).

I hope that you enjoyed a tour of the storage solutions that Close To My Heart carries to support our products. If you feel like being creative and decorating your own storage solutions (i.e. card boxes, journaling card boxes, containers, etc.), then there are even more storage options for you in our Idea Book / Catalog. You can go HERE to see the other options not discussed in this post. Everything shown and/or discussed here can be found under the “Product List” image below.

Alright, now go and get organized. No excuses… everything you need is right here!

I’ll see you in the craft room,
