Hello and welcome to the last day in the series of the MY Favorite Things 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash. Today, the design team is sharing how we organize our stencils, embellishments, and tools. 

I keep my Stencils in an Avery Elle Extra Large clear storage pockets with a trimmed top. I store two stencils in one pocket with a piece of trimmed Steel Blue card stock in between. I have them labeled with the names of the stencils.

I organize my Pretty Pink Posh sequins, beads, and jewels in a 82 - Piece Tiny Container Storage Tray by Elizabeth Ward. I just finished filling all the tiny containers, so I'm going to be picking up the second one real soon.

I store my Nuvo Drops and Nuvo Glitters in an Ikea Skadis shelf, and it hangs on a Ikea Skadis Pegboard. I can easily remove the shelf from the pegboard and place it on my desk when I need to.

On the pegboard, I also have my Misti Stamping tools, scissors, Scor-Buddy, Steel Snips, QuickStick Pick-up Tool, and Fine Pointed Tweezers in Ikea Skadis acessories. The best part is that I can grab them from the pegboard from where I'm sitting and crafting. 

I keep my Mini Ink Blending Tool, Mini Ink Blending Foam Pads and sponge Daubers in an Ikea Alex drawer near my desk. I store the foam pads inside a transparent plastic jewelry box storage container with dividers. 

That's it for today! Thank you so much for joining me for the 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash series. I hope this series provided you with lots of tips, tricks and ideas to help you get organized.

  2. Hi Amy. hope your well? I was told that alcohol pens and embossing pens are supposed to be stored flat. Is this not what you DO? Xx you've all had some great tips lately and I love them. Thankyou for sharing xxx

    1. Hi Andrea! I guess that would be the ideal position for the markers and pens but I've had no problems storing them upright. I just try to remember to keep the pointed tip down so that the markers will be juicy when I need to use them. :)
