MFT Creative Chat, Embellishments Storage

MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature , where we challenge our design team their creative side using a specific product, theme or explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods tools and shopping strategies with you. This month the team is been asked to  show you organizational methods of how to store embellishments. Are you ready to get some ideas? Visit Kim's blog for a full list of participants.

As you perhaps know I am a sucker for storage and for my embellishments I found some great solutions. I {heart} brads and collected quite a bit since I started cardmaking, I have them stored in these clear boxes.
 I have four of them filled with all kinds of brads
One for the mini brads, I use them mostly and almost on every card:-)
One for charms, I don't use those much often but hey I just love the sight of them...hihi
One for special shaped brads, big brads, spiral clips, bling brads...
And one for huge brads, I use those biggies mostly for scrapbooking
Below you can find some bigger boxes, You can buy those at embroidery stores like this one.
Buttons *sigh* in all shapes and sizes. This is only a small collection, which is sort out color by color. Very handy because you don't have to look very long which color you need for your creation. I have more but they are not sorted out... yet.
Little metal embellishments, wooden spools, clothespins, cute wooden ladybugs... name it and I have it LOL I like the versatility of all those shapes
Further more I have lots (18 gosh that sounds like a lot when I write this down *iek*;-)) of those awesome Ikea boxes, in which you can put all those other big fun embellishments. Bling is for all those gorgeous bling swirls, little gem stones etc. Flowers, for all the paper flower I use most, and Bags for the paperbags, kraft bags, cellophane bags...
I stamped labels with the Typewriter Alphabet, doesn't have to be perfect. Just so you know what's in them white boxes, I think the effect with this stampset is fun!
And because I always love sharing, I want to share this Typewriter Alphabet candy with one of my Blog readers. Leave me a comment and I will draw a winner next week Monday January 2, 2012! Good Luck:)

  1. Just found your blog through MFT, became a follower :)
    Love seeing your storage solutions, especially the buttons (my favourite embellishments). I store mine in little glass (clean! ;) ) baby food jars sorted out by colour (they're probably the only things that are sorted in my craft room.... ;) ).

  2. Ik gebruik precies dezelfde sorteerbakjes als jij maar ik ben nog een stapje verder gegaan: ik heb er een stuk of 10 en ieder bakje heeft zij eigen kleur. Zo hoef ik niet telkens alle bakjes na te zoeken. Als ik iets roze wil hebben, pak ik het bakje met de roze spulletjes enz. het werkt erg makkelijk!!! Ja en dan die stempelset: helemaal geweldig!!! Ik ben al een tijdje op zoek naar een alfabet en deze vind ik super!

    groetjes Margo

  3. Gald to see I'm in good company! I also use the compartmentalized containers for all of my little stuff, too. I wish I would have bought all the clear ones. All of mine are the ones like you have your buttons in. I can still see through them but I would have liked the clear ones better. TFS a peek of your craft storage. :)

  7. I'm really finding these posts useful. It seems that sorting by color is the way to go. I jut wish I had my own craft room and not just a corner of the kitchen.....or less stuff! (not) LOL
