  1. I like the clear bag idea for stamp sets and dies. I have piles of sets everywhere. I need to get them organized! I am going to put the stamps and coordinating dies in the same bag. Looking forward to a cleaner stamp room so I can actually get in there and create. Thanks for the tips!

  2. I learn so much from you. Brilliant storage ideas. Hope to incorporate several in my own craft room. A happy, healthy New Year to you and yours. Thanks for all you share.

  3. I always look forward to your favorite crafty videos!! I always learn something new. A new organizer, a new tool even a new stamp set that I might have missed during the year!! I really like the Mini Ink Tray and the Interdesign CLARITY TIERED COMPARTMENT Organizer. I have been slowly starting to organize my craft room and I definitely want to continue!

  4. Loved this video so many fabulous storage and organizing ideas! Those bins look terrific for organizing stamps!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your organization tips. Hoping to get more organized this year with my craft items and your ideas are so helpful. I love the ink cube storage trays!

  6. I love this! We just moved and I finally get a craft nook in the house. Yay! I dont have any organization yet so the gift card will come in handy. My tip is to always have the vaccuum out ( because I’m messy) and label everything!

  7. I think labeling items with a machine really helps to have a clean vision of our supplies.

  8. Thank you for sharing all of your favorite things for 2017! I always enjoy this series 🙂 I love the idea of storing stamps/dies in stamp pockets and small bins.

  9. I envy how organized you are. Thanks for the video filled with great suggestions. My organizational tip is to take action, not say I’ll label it later, I’ll file it later, etc. Doing it “later” can lead to overwhelm and then nothing happens.

  10. Thanks for the fantastic organizing tips and ideas. I think my best tip ( which I need to follow more) is to put in action what you plan to do. I have great ideas in my head about what I want to do to organize but then procrastinate. When I do put in action the plan it’s a great improvement in my craft room and a great feeling of accomplishment! Makes a nicer place to work in too!

  11. Love your videos! You inspire me to get organized as well as being creative. The fridge Binz are great for storing stamps in DVD cases too. I plan to try the Avery pockets for my clear stamps. Thank you so much!

  12. I reorganized my stamps the same way you do yours and it’s so much better than any other way I’ve ever tried. I also love my little ink swatch binder – it’s made a big difference in helping me to choose ink colors, so thank you so much!!!

  13. Oh wow, didn’t know there was a MISTI bag and I love seeing your new and favorite ideas! One of my favorite things is labeling ink pads (not favorite to do it, but it’s worth the time). I also have the Illustrated Faith bag and love it! Thanks so much for sharing so much with us. Looking forward to a fabulous 2018.

  14. I strive to be as organized as you seem to be. I do accomplish more and with much less stress if things are organized. That being said, I think the best thing you shared was your thoughts about anxiety and ways you try to keep it in check. There are many of us out there who have anxiety issues and its always good to know we’re not alone. Somehow it makes you more real, if that makes any sense. 🙂

  15. Thank you so much for all of this wonderful information. Really like the Brother label maker – it’s on my list for this year’s studio investment! Happy 2018.

  16. Thank you Jennifer for this great serie you made again for us past year. I didn’t have the time for watching this one, the others I watched already, until know. I love them all. I am not a native speaker and you are always calm and clear in your talking on all your video’s so they are good to follow for everyone.
    My favorite organization product are the Mini Ink Cube Trays, finally a product that is good for the little cube’s, love that!

  17. I’ve just made time to watch your organization video. Your organization tips always inspire me. My favorite tip came from you last year — the stamp and die storage pockets. I even bought a label maker. The only thing keeping me from trying your ink and marker storage suggestions is limited space. Thank you so much for all your ideas and inspiration.

  18. Fantastic storage tips and ideas! I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my stamps and this just looks fantastic! I don’t have any specific storage that I would call my favourite. I used craft cubes (don’t remember the brand) that are available at Michaels and have a bunch of the different configurations that I have stacked in the closet of one of our spare bedrooms. I have all my paper, inks, embellishments, and tools stored in those. Then I’ve spilled into the room on bookshelves (that are used as bookshelves) and just have a little section on each shelf with baskets that have my ribbon, stamps, and dies, and then my cutting machines on the shelves too.

  19. My favorite tip is using the job ticket holders and magazine holders for paper. I have already started to organize my paper this way and I really like it!

  20. I love all of your tips and I’ve benefited so much over the years with your recommendations. This year my fav tip is the card stand to keep your desk organized while you’re creating. It’s definitely something that I’ll be purchasing. Thanks Jennifer for another great series. I’m sure these take a lot of time and effort and it’s important that you know how much we appreciate these videos, thank you!

  21. I think I could probably share my ‘what not to do tips more easily, since I always seem to come up with crazy storage ideas! I have a peg board in a closet that has probably worked out the best. It’s in a closet, so it’s out of sight, but everything g is easy to find when I need it!

  22. I always love your new organization videos. Each time, I learn a new trick (or 10!). I’m hoping to order the Stamin’ Up ink pad storage soon from Organize More.

  23. My favorite tip is how you store your stamps in the bags then put them into the containers. I currently use a 8 x 8 photo album to store my clear stamps.

  24. Thanks for another great organization video! I’m really excited about the mini ink cube trays from Organize More. I need to measure my drawers to see if they’ll fit. I also like the use of laminated cardstock to make dividers instead of plastic folders. I’m not sure whether you want us to comment on your tips or whether you are asking for tips from us. Just in case you mean the latter I thought I would share that I have a large magnetic board on the inside of my closet doors. It’s made from corrugated cardboard that I covered with paper and the magnetic covers for vents that I pick up at my local home improvement store. On it I store large dies that really don’t fit anywhere else. I also made a much smaller version that I hang from a knob on the cupboard behind my dining room table (which is where I do my crafting). On it I hang whatever dies I’m using that day. Because it’s magnetic I don’t have to worry about tiny dies getting lost and it frees up room on my work surface.

  25. Help. I’ve watched a ton of your videos and love them all.
    There was one where you show lots of ways to use press and seal. I can’t find it again
    Please point me in the right direction

  26. Hello Jennifer! I have a major issue with having heaps of large sheet clear cling stamps that I have mostly bought over the years from Paper Crafting magazines. Now.. these large sheets of different types of clear stamps are very hard to sought out into smaller bundles … like into special themes etc. These large sheets of clear stamps (most of them come from England ) and the size of these sheets of stamps are at least a bit over A4 (or US letter size). I HAVE HEAPS OF THESE LARGE SHEETS OF STAMPS … i AM NOT JOKING! i JUST WANT TO ORGANISE THEM INTO SMALLER THEMED SETS AND MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL! ZI KNOW YOU WOULD APPRECIATE THIS!

    i ALSO HAVE A SIMILAR SITUATION IN A WAY WITH MY DIES! And how to sort those out! Now.. I Will be honest and tell you that I haven’t much space, money or the way with all! Plus, here in Australia, we just don’t have the VAST ARRAY OF GOODIES YOU HAVE AT YOUR EASY DISPOSAL IN AMERICA!! iT’S EVEN NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO PURCHASE SUCH ITE,MS LIKE SHEETS AND SHEETS OF MAGNETIC SHEETING AND EMPTY CD OR DVD CASES TO STORE DIES IN ETC.;; COULD YOU PLEASE HELP SHINE A LIGHT ON MY PROBLEM?? I greatly look forward to your reply on these issues. P.S Take Care and stay safe okay Jennifer! God Bless You, and your family!!

  27. This video is SO helpful!

    Making pocket liners helps the visibility of clear stamps much easier to see.

    I also started labeling brand and stamp name as well. Keeping track of the company helps me better identify my style and what I gravitate to, and reference ideas later. 😉

  28. This was just what I was looking for. I have made decisions on storage, however I know now there are other things that would improve my storage. Thank you for all your help! You are very generous.

  30. Hi Jennifer! I am so excited that I found you! After card making for 15 years, I had become bored with the craft company that I had been using. Your videos and blog post have helped me become excited again. I love organization and purchased several of your recommendation. I wanted to give you and your customers a heads up however. I purchased the Clear card bags back in Feb and LOVED them. I just purchased two more packages but they have changed. They now have hanging tab holes so they are longer and do not fit into the storage bins like the originals. I am cutting off the tabs since I now own 200!! but they still don’t fit great. Just wanted to make sure that you and others were aware of this change. Thanks again for the creative ideas and suggestions!!
