awesome blog candy... I love to take my scraps and keep them organized by solids and patterns. I feel this helps when I need either or...before I used to just put them all together and the pile got so big I could not find what I was looking for... Hope this helps..
Thanks for the fun blog candy...

Wow...what great candy! My organizational tip is that I keep my clear stamps in CD cases. I also stamp the images on sheets of paper and label them with a number to correspond with the case they are stored in which are also numbered. I can browse through my binder to locate the stamp I want to use and go to that case right away without searching forever for my stamps.

I'm so glad you're the Paper Smooches GD. I love your cards! I don't have a lot of organizing tips since I'm still trying to figure out what to do with all of my stuff so I can't wait to see what other people suggest!!

Jingle said...

Congratulations on your 200 followers! That is exciting!

I keep all my different groups of items in labeled tupperware containers. I use the kind of containers with the latch lids, they seem to last longer. I also have a file folder container and I have all my scraps seperated first by type of paper and then by color and they have file folder tags, so I always know right where to go! Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi, I am Terri of Two Pink Peas and I am a brand new follower of your blog. Although I LOVE blog candy giveaways I want you to know that I DO NOT follow just to enter. Once I follow a blog I am a follower until your blog ends. Friendships are way more important to me then winning blog candy. I posted your blog candy on my sidebar and you can find it at www.twopinkpeas.blogspot.com and my favorite organization for my wood stamps is to take long strips of wood and to attach them onto my wall, several in a row and display my wood stamps that way. When doing it this way I am able to find any wood stamp that I am looking for and I also put them in catagories...I guess that is the ocd in me..lol. It looks really amazing when you have about 10 strips of wood all on one wall and you can see all of your wooden stamps. That would be my most favorite way to organize something. Also, I have to tell you that I have MANY family members who are mormon. I even went with them on Sunday's and also went to camp which is one of my most precious memories from my childhood. We made a wooden bead necklace and I must have been 13 years old or so and I still have it. It is one of my treasured items. We had to put on a play and we called it Bear Busters (like the song Ghost Busters) and we WON the talent show. My 1st cousin and I went together and I really cherish those moments. Anyhow, My aunt who is mormon has 10 children and so many grandchildren that I lost count..lol. We have a HUGE family and my aunt and uncle are the most loving couple I have ever seen. I have never, not even one time seen them fight or argue. My uncle always calls my aunt "Hi my pretty wife" and beautiful things like that. They were such a blessing to be around. I stayed at their house ALL the time and LOVED it. Plus my aunt cooked homemade meals every single day. She is a HERO to me. I don't know how she did it but she is really amazing. They are so much in love even to this day after 10 kids. They are really amazing role models!!! I was not that lucky because my parents got divorced when I was only 9 years old and it really traumatized me so being with my aunt and her gigantic family was such a blessing to me (she was my mom's sister)and they really helped me cope. My aunts 1st daughter is so proud because her 1st daughter just got accepted into BYU and we are so proud of her!! I don't know why I wanted to share all of that with you, I just did..lol..Probably because I have SO many precious memories with them and really miss it. They took my traumatized childhood and made it normal and I will always be grateful to them for that. Anyhow, Thank you for an AMAZING giveaway and everything in it looks so amazing. Whoever wins this is going to LOVE it so much!

I am a new follower and so far I am very impressed.. I can't wait to see more of your creations. My organization tip: I hang my paper punches on a rod hung on the wall. They are right there above my work pace to use whn needed. I also love the stamp set. I could make a lot with them.

Pendra said...

Congrats on over 200, great giveaway and thanks for a chance to win it... it is so cute!! I am your newest follower and I have posted and linked on my sidebar, on my blog about your giveaway! Visit me too sometime! My organization tip... well the last thing I have done was I purchased metal rods and metal/wire baskets from Ikea, they were really cheap, the rods were a couple of dollars and about 3 ft long (come in different lengths). The wire baskets were under a dollar each and many different sizes. Very sturdy and look great on the wall, I hung 3, one on top of each other on the wall above my craft counter and everything is at my finger tips!
Hugs,
Pendra

Congratulations on the followers :D

My crafty tip is so difficult to decide, you see, I'm not only a papercrafter. But one of my organization tips is for the tiny scraps. I use a big file folder with loads of see-through sheets (sorry, crappy at explaining things I don't know the english word of)
I oranize my scraps based on colour, then on the pattern, insects, stripes, dots, simple, etc.

Nikki said...

Congrats on all the followers
My tip is to remove all the wider ribbons from their rolls and re-roll them smaller I then just use a little tape to hold them in place and then put them in little ziplock bags according to color ... I'm limited on space so it may take a bit of time to do but they all fit in a small box ;)
thanks for the chance
hugs Nikki

oooo unity. love love unity :) i saw a cool organizational idea of wrapping ribbons onto wooden laundry clips and noting which brand along the clip. i have yet to try it, but have you seen my disorganized ribbon stash?! ahem...

thanks for a chance to win, Alison! congrats on your success!

Corinna said...

My favorite organizational too useto use a Ribbon Carousel for ribbon roll storage! Here's the link: http://ribboncarousel.com

I am a new follower~Came across your blog GIU this week. I love Unity. I do not have a blog.

Mette said...

Congrats on your 200 follower of which I am one. Love your crafting style and enjoy visiting here.
I am what you would call a messy crafter and my stamps are stored in big boxes in a muddle. But I do keep my scraps sorted by colour and pattern as I am trying to reduce the amount I have. Paper piecing is good for this hehe.
Thank you for a chance to win this fabulous stamp set.

Hugs, Mette

jengd said...

I have a hanging filebox I store all of my scraps in. I'd love to file them with their full sheets but I don't have room for this so I look at it as the next best thing. Congrats on the follower milestone and having such a great GUI week! http://jensunchartedterritory.blogspot.com/2011/09/blog-candy-over-at-creations-by-alison.html
