  1. It took me a long time to figure out how I wanted to organize my Copic markers. I tried several systems, finally settling on the OrganizeMore marker storage shelf. Well, soon after I discovered the Thirty-One go bag and I love how my Copics fit in perfectly with storage pockets for my coloring pages. I thought I’d transfer between the two systems, but my go bag is now my Copic Marker storage bag. I lay it flat or sit it upright and I can see and get to my markers so easily. As my collection grows, I will definitely be purchasing another bag from Thirty-One. My OM system is now being used for my other markers/pens. Thanks for the great ideas Jennifer, they really work!

  2. I find these videos so helpful, and enabling! I love all of your storage ideas. I am thinking about getting some products from Organize More. I dont have a lot of room, but I need ink storage! I have been enjoying stamp pockets, but now I think I need to put my zillions of dies in pockets, too. I use the label maker because of you. Thanks for the idea for a cheaper version! Keep on doing the videos. I love them!

  3. i love the sequins storage. Still trying to figure out the best way to store my stamps and dies. I like the small footprint of the 3 ring binders and photo sleeves that i am using but i love your pockets too!

  4. So many cool options for storage. I really like the mini ink cube storage drawers. A convenient way to keep them all together.

  5. Jennifer,
    I love your idea to use pouches for storing stamps and dies. I have been trying to figure how to keep my delicate dies from getting bent. You have so many organization ideas!

  6. The mini ink storage is brilliant! Thank you for working with a vendor to solve this storage issue. Love it!

  7. use the storage packs from Simon Says for stamp and die storage … still try new products to find the perfect storage options … also like the Thirty One gift bags

  8. Hi Jennifer,
    I totally in love with the sequence storage, so I purchased one. I love, love, love, looking at it full and colorful. Thank you.

  9. My favorite tip is watching your organizing videos and figuring out how I can store everything even without all the room.

  10. I’ve always loved the idea of storing stamps and dies in pockets. That might be one of my resolutions this year. My favorite organizing product that I have in my house is a large rotating tower that my husband bought for me when Borders was going out of business. I can store all my paints, reinkers, sprays, etc. on it and have it all right in front of me when I need it.

  11. I have been able to find a ton of organization stuff at Bed Bath & Beyond – including those storage bins, but sometimes I just stroll through looking for items to use.

  12. Just got around to watching this Jennifer! As always, so very useful to see how you keep everything in order. I found a notebook yesterday and it contained lists of things from your previous two years of crafty things videos. many of them I purchased along the way and am still using! They have stood the test of time in my craft room – all have been great recommendations. Thanks for all your amazing videos this year and of course your kindness to me personally. Love and hugs to you and your beautiful family, Lisa xx

  13. My favorite tip is the stamp organization as I have accumulated quite a few stamp sets the past year. However, I am getting ready to move and set up my craft room so honestly, all of these are helpful 🙂

  14. Jennifer, I love watchin all of your videos. I new to crafting and am working on getting organized. I just purchased an Alex storage and I just love it. Thank you for all you do. Christi

  15. Hi jennifer!! Thank you for sharing so much with us! I’m from italy and you Made me crazy with cardmaking!!! Ma favorite tip are the avery elle plastic bag… here in italy si very difficile to find them!!! In this 2018 hope to learn more and more from you! Wish you all the best!

  16. My favorite part of your series by far! I love to organize my dies in pockets and magnetic sheets. I am trying it out for 2018. Thanks so much for all of your videos and much love and kindness to you in 2018.

  17. I love the idea of storing clear stamps in the clear pockets. I bought pockets and some magnetic sheets to store the corresponding dies, but haven’t had a chance yet to reorganize everything into this system. i’m looking forward to getting myself organized in 2018! Thanks for putting together such great videos filled with so many helpful tips! I look forward to seeing your blog emails in my inbox!

  18. Thanks, Jennifer! My favorite organization tip is to use magnetic sheet for very small dies in the storage pockets. That way I can see what I have, rather than having a clump at the bottom of the bag. If I can’t see them, I forget what I have! Happy New Year!

  19. Happy New Year Jennifer. May this new year bring you blessings of good health and lots of love. Thank you so much for all your help and hard work. Your blog has helped me so much to organize my craft room but my overall home. My feelings and my way of thinking. I enjoyed the label maker and the small cube holder. The little vac is perfect to keep my area clean. There is so much more that is wonderful about your videos. You are my inspiration to create and stay organized.

  20. wow so many ideas and tips in your video – Love the stamp storage pockets – I store my stamps in photo boxes which are so cheap and colorful:)

  21. Love the tips and intro to newer more useable items. Thanks for sharing the inserts for drawers from Organize More. Also love the way you used the large Avery Elle bag for background stamps. Been looking for a solution and there you were. Thanks.

  22. My only tip for organization is to ‘keep it tidy’, store things where you can find them and try hard to use what you have!

  23. I enjoy the videos. I love to have things organized…it helps me to think and create. I was already doing some of the same things you were and have been able to adopt a ton of your ideas as well. Keep the videos coming.

  24. Love the video. Awesome as usual.
    Quick question. Can you please share the address label printer that you use for sending your cards? You mentioned it in a video once but not the model or brand. Thanks in advance!

  25. I use the stamp pockets, these keep my stamps and dies organized. I have been following your blog for a couple years and you have inspired and motivated me!! Thanks for sharing your talents with us!!

  26. I do quite a few of these either just like your ideas or very similar. What I like is the card holder idea and I already ordered some. I have a bunch of handmade cards on a shelf and that would be great to show them better. I like those bags too for crafty on the go. Sometimes I take some stamped images and pencils plus glasses etc. so those would be nice to have.

  27. I do use a lot of your ideas for storage. I have a question too. You never talk about storing rubber stamps – like Tim’s. What do you do for that? thanks as always for sharing.

  28. Thank you for sharing this great post. Your video is great and your explanations are so helpful and clear. You’re really good! My favorites from what you’ve shared here are the Organize More Mini Ink Cube Trays and the clear 5 drawer organizer.

  29. I keep my smaller stencils in old post-bound 8×8 scrapbooks that I don’t use for layouts anymore (I prefer 3-ring).

  30. I love getting ideas for organization. Being organized helps my creative process. One of my favorite ideas is using an 8×8 album to hold my stencils. Most of my stencils are 6×6 and the album pages hold the stencils nicely and I can just flip through to find the one I want to use.

  31. Hi Jennifer! I love your videos! I never miss one! I love all of your storage ideas, but I really think my favorite is how you store your stamps and die cuts together. I have been storing mine separately until now…and Whew! What a huge time saver to have it all ready to go without spending time looking for the coordinating dies. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent!

  32. I think what is most important to me in my craft room is maintaining cleanliness as I craft. It helps me to stay organized. I have recently incorporated using dryer sheets and a small little hand held vacuum to help tidy my desk of little messes such as embossing powder. Thanks Jennifer for THAT great tip! Also keeping all like products together helps me maintain a clean work station💟💟💟

  33. I really liked the boon organizer. I asked my husband if he could make me one out of pvc pipe! I also like the card stand to put stuff you want to use soon. I really like having my desk clear and I hope this items will help. Thanks Jen!

  34. I always enjoy your awesome videos Jennifer. I have to say that I am totally, 100% in love with the mini ink cube storage you shared with us! Am so very excited to use that system!
    Thanks so very much for all you share with us. May your 2018 be full of love, light and blessings❤️

  35. One of the things that I have to do everytime I get a new stamp is put it in an Avery Elle storage pocket and label it with the product and company name. It helps me see all my stamps quicker when I’m going to use them. Also, whenever I get a new ink, I like to make a color swatch, a label and put an ink blending foam at the bottom with velcro. These 2 things may take time at first, but they help me be organized whenever I want to make a quick project.
    Most of these things I learned from you, so please continue to do these awesome videos that are so helpful! ☺

  36. After I saw your video last year for the stamp and die storage, I bought all the supplies I needed to organize my stash! I absolutely love it! I can easily find all my stamps and dies, therefore, putting them to use more! Thank you for such a wonderful tip!

  37. Thanks for the video and giveaway! I really like some clear storage containers purchased from our local Dollar Store. They come in different sizes and have 3 drawers each. I have them labeled for twine, ribbon, punches, stamps, ink… now just wish there was more time to create. 🙂

  38. I found two things very useful: the first being the 5 drawer marker holder. I have about 250 markers and the storage trays for them that I have right now is very tedious and tends to fall apart. The second being was the other brand of tape refill that is less expensive for the brother P touch label maker. I do not like the Gemini electric cutter, I had bought it and found that it didn’t cut through one third of the time, and it cracked and made some very scary noises. Maybe I did not have a good one? Personal comment: my son died 4 years ago and it has hurt me so terribly and I suffer from depression. I have found paper crafting to be very helpful through those long nights. Thank you for your help and instructions. It is greatly appreciated. Happy & Healthy New Year to you and your family.
