Join Me on a Video Tour of My New Studio

Click on the video image above for a tour of My Stampin’ Pretty Studio.

Last August my husband, Scott, and I purchased a home in the Catalina Foothills of Tucson, AZ, that we have been remodeling for the last 8 months.  It’s been a challenge to say the least, but most of the work is complete. Now it’s time to share my completed craft studio with you, right?

In the video above, I’m both the videographer and narrator (oh, so, unscripted – including a couple visits from Boris, our cat). The video is far from perfect but I hope it gives you a helpful glimpse of the new space, lots of ideas (big and small) and makes clear my passion for organizing my paper, stamps and ink.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Here’s the “before” photo of the laundry.

I shared this post last fall and explained that I would be transforming the laundry room into a laundry/studio.  At only 9′ x 10′, it’s a much smaller space than my previous studios (you can see them here).  However, it pressed me to plan for a new level of efficiency and organization balanced with a warm, personalized craft space.

Here is the “blank slate” (after demolition) from which My Stampin’ Pretty Studio evolved.

Links to Stamp-n-Storage products shown in the video.

Here’s a general link to shop.

Stamp Case Shelves.  Brett from Stamp-n-Storage can customize the size of these (he did for me) or you can choose from the ready made options.

Magnet Cards for keeping dies in place.  I have the 6 x 7 size but an 8 x 7 size is now available for larger dies/sets.

Die Storage

Emboss Folder Storage

Lock Down Punch Holder

Combo Ink Pad Holder (60)

Standard Paper Holder (8.5 x 11 & 12 x 12)

Ribbon Shelf

Please note that if you use the Stamp-n-Storage links to shop, I get a small affiliate fee for sharing them with you. However, I can’t say enough about how these products help me stay organized and highly recommend them.

An Awesome Idea for Washi Tape Storage!

I love this idea for washi tape storage and organization.  I originally purchased these cubbies (30 openings) as Blendabilities Marker storage from Stamp-n-Storage. When Blendabilities were discontinued earlier this year, I was determined to find an alternate use and was delighted to discover that all my Stampin’ Up! washi tape fits.  Easy to view and within reach–just the way I like it.  You can purchase this storage unit through Stamp-n-Storage using my affiliate link HERE.

I spoke to Brett at Stamp-n-Storage about how I wanted to use the unit for washi tape and he quickly whipped up spacers that you insert at the back of the cubbies to keep the washi tape from going too deep.  Thank you, Brett!  You can purchase the spacers for the Blendabilities Marker storage (now my washi tape storage) using my affiliate link here.

Here’s my link if you want to check out ALL the Stamp-n-Storage craft organization products. I receive a small affiliate fee if you use these links to shop but assure you I love and use these products or wouldn’t be recommending them!
