More Organizing Done!

I was able to get some more organizing done over the weekend.  I even managed to get 1/3 of my counter cleaned off!! Now I finally have room for my Zutter Cutter. One of the things you don't see that I also organized what a ton a photos!  My order from Avery Elle also came Friday so I can now start organizing my dies, clear stamps and embossing folders. I've decided to do mine the way Jennifer McGuire does hers. I really like that you can see what is in the clear envelopes plus it takes up so much less space than the way I was originally planning on using. If you'd like to see her organization tips here is a link to her blog:  www.jennifermcguireink.com/  and also a link to a tour of her scrapbook room that tells how she stores and organizes everything:  www.jennifermcguireink.com/2008/11/my-scraproom-part-1.html   You'll be converted in no time! I know I was!

 This the die cutting area at the end of the counter that runs the length of the room. Mike put the Recollections shelf from Michael's up today - it used to be where the 3rd set of shelves now reside. I have all my Cricut Cartridges, Sizzix dies and Accu-Cut dies stored in the wire shelves. In the Shelf above are ribbons, embellishments from Queen & Company, Glitter, Stamp Re-Inkers and other various items for making cards with. The blue items in the black racks to the side on the counter are also Sizzix dies.

The last set of shelves are FINALLY organized! And next to these shelves is one of the 2 small cubes Mike put up for me today. Top row has my Quick Kutz Die Cut Maker along with a couple of other LARGE scrapbooking tools. The two bags on the opposite end of the top shelf hold other cutting things, plus my Crop-a-dile and a Stapler. The Hello Kitty holder in the middle was actually a Nail Polish Display holder that I plan to use for something - just have to figure out what! LOL! The 2nd shelf has all 3 sizes of my Xyrons, my small Sizzix embossing and cutting machine, my Sizzix Sidekick, the Zutter binding machine and my Gypsy for my Cricut machine. The bottom shelf has my large Cricut machine that cuts 12x12 paper, my original Cricut machine that uses 8 1/2 x 11 sized paper and my Cricut Jukebox and tool kit. Below the shelves, next to the blue dies is my Zutter Cutter that will cut paper without having to measure it - just put the paper in and roll it out cut!

Wide angle view of the middle and last set of shelves with the 2 small cubes mounted on the wall in between hem. On the last set of shelves, on the middle shelf he first pink basket holds all of my Hello Kitty Smash Book and scrapbooking items, all except the Hello Kitty scrapbooking paper.

This is 1 of the 2 slanted half cubes we got for 70% off each at Michael's. I wasn't sure what to store in them when I got them, but I'm finding them handy for extra blades, decorative paperclips, idea cards, rub on letters and other small misc items.

This is the 2nd of he slanted cubes and right now I have Staz-On Ink Pads in the first row and he 2nd and 3rd rows are my Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink Pads. I'm not sure if his will be their finally home or not. I still need to put a dot with the ink color on the outside of each ink pad along with it's name.

That's pretty much it for today.  I have a huge list of things I'm hoping to accomplish so I need to get down to the scrapbook room. Hopefully I will get all of my inks labeled and more stamps and dies put away.

Have a scrappy day!
