When I was organizing my creative space a few years ago, I spent endless hours on Pinterest looking for ideas and inspiration.
I created a half-dozen or so boards filled with all of the latest and greatest organizational finds. Anything and everything I thought I could ever possibly want got pinned.

And you know what? I still love looking at all of those amazing creative spaces.
I’m really close to starting all over again. If you’ve been around for a while, you know that we’re just about finished with the studio project and I’m of course so excited that I can barely contain myself.
All these years and I finally get a blank canvas to work with.
Can you believe it? This is where you imagine me jumping up and down and spinning around in circles. And because organizing makes me giddy, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite ideas. Here’s how I organized my entire creative space.
Paper is in Cropper Hopper paper organizers* and it has been for years. It’s so easy to flip through and find exactly what I’m looking for. I have 15 Cropper Hoppers overflowing with patterned paper and 12 of the mini Cropper Hoppers that are keeping tabs on my cardstock.
I keep scraps in Iris cases*. If it’s smaller than 12×12, it’s considered a scrap.
Embellishments are scattered. There are some in muffin tins* as well as a few other miscellaneous containers that have managed to find their way into my space.
All of my alphas are hanging out in my Raskog cart. This is the absolute best $50 I’ve ever spent. You can find a similar carts at Michael’s. Thickers are in the bottom tray.
Non-Alpha Stickers and Rub-Ons
Non-alpha stickers are in the top tray of the Raskog cart. Rub-ons are on a jump ring, hanging on the closet door.
Ribbon, Fiber, and Thread
I keep all of my ribbon in jars. It’s quick and easy to get to. It looks awesome too.
I almost always keep stamps in baskets so that I can find what I need.
Ink, Ink Pads, and Embossing Supplies
Ink, ink pads, and embossing supplies are on the infamous black bookcases in baskets. Mists are on a 2-tier serving tray.
Paint, Glitter, and Stickles
Most of my art supplies are in baskets on the infamous black bookcases. I like being able to find what I need quickly and just toss it back in when I’m done.
Tools are all over the place – just like embellishments. The tools that I use the most are in a dish on my desk.
There are some chipboard letters in a basket on the infamous black bookcases. There are chipboard sheets up on the top shelf in the closet.
Die cuts are in these photo cases* as well as in the middle tray of the Raskog cart.
Pens and Pencils
Some are in the dish on my desk. And there are two little baskets on the infamous black bookcases that have all of my most-used art journaling pens and pencils in them.
Project Life Supplies
A lot of my Project Life supplies are still in their original boxes. What I’m currently using is organized in this awesome little tray.
