Craft Storage Ideas Spring Blog Hop 2014

** This giveaway is now closed! **

Welcome to the first ever Craft Storage Ideas Blog Hop!

We are each showcasing our favorite craft storage or organization idea. The hop starts at Craft Storage Ideas so if you would like to start from the beginning head on over to CSI. There are lots of great giveaways all week-long and several of the blogs, including mine, are offering blog candy.

My absolute favorite storage solution is my Recollections storage cubes from Michael’s. 

Recollections storage cubes from Michaels


The reason I love these cubes so much is they are so versatile. Even as my crafting needs evolve and change over time, I am able to configure these to perfectly fit my needs and space. 

In mine I have scrapbook embellishments, paints, scrapbook paper, jewelry supplies, mod podge and other decoupage mediums, my Cricut mats and paper trimmer, plus so much more!

Storage cubes versatility

 My favorite drawers are the ones with the dividers in them. I store my craft paint upside down in the drawer so I can easily see all the colors. I also have a few with just long dividers that I store my scrapbook embellishments, stickers, etc. in. The cubes easily stack and store so much in such a small space!

What is your favorite item to organize your craft supplies?

  2. Gilda (McStamper) says:

    Love your organized space. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Marie O says:

    OMG your craft organization is very impressive!

  4. Margaret says:

    I love the Recollections storage at Michaels also and do need a few more so winning the gift certificate will help.

    • Laura Silva says:

      Good luck! They keep coming out with new ones! I am almost to the point where I need to add another level of cubes. (I am a little bit of a craft supply hoarder. Shh! Don’t tell!) ;)

  5. Wonderful organization set up, love the recollections cubes. Thank you for sharing your organization tip.

    Great storage ideas! I’m off to use some of your ideas now! Thanks!

  7. Amy Shepard says:

    I love these cubes too! Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Susan h. says:

    My fave thing is my carousel but I love your Recollections cubes! So useful!

  9. grammygoodwill says:

    I don’t have any of the “special” storage items. I like collecting tins that have foreign sites that I’ve visited. Then I use them for storage. Thanks for the chance to win.

    • Laura Silva says:

      That is a great idea! I love repurposing items around my home for storage. Right now, my favorite repurposed item is my blue mason jars for pens. Since I am a bit of a pen hoarder, I have quite a few of them around! :)

  10. Dana W says:

    Wow!! I love seeing a real person using this stuff! Much better then Michaels staged photos!!! Love the dividers in the drawers!!

  11. I can’t enter your giveaway as I am in Northern Ireland but I can still comments (and drool) on your awesome storage from Michaels. What I wouldn’t do to have a Michaels in Northern Ireland, lol. We have no big craft stores here at all. Just a few teeny, tiny wee private shops (3 I think in all) and they costs a clean fortune to buy from. I’d need to remortgage the house to buy from them, lol. Thank goodness for online shopping and Ikea for great storage, lol. Lee x

  12. Mary O-K says:

    Your organization of the cubes is exceptional. I, too, have many of them and happily spend hours rearranging! I have to admit, though, that my favorite item to store my crafty stuff is “makeshift.” A Joann’s store was relocating and sold off many of their fixtures. I purchased a rack that held sheets of felt and added acrylic frames to each shelf, which hold LOTS of stamps for me.
    Best Wishes,

    • Laura Silva says:

      That is so awesome! That would be so great to have the store’s storage system! I don’t have the space, but I would love to get some of their paper sorters. :)

  13. Zehra says:

    I love the cubes, I have one small one for my desk for the markers and alcohol inks. Love it, and in one I keep all my glues

  14. Suzy Gray says:

    The michaels cubes are handy because they can be added to as your needs change

  15. Debbie V says:

    Love your storage areas — I guess my favorite storage is my dies and embossing folders and stamps inside clear plastic sleeves, all labeled and orderly in a refrigerator plastic bin drawer.

  16. Denise Bryant says:

    Love the cubes! I’ll have to give them some consideration. Trying to figure out what will work for me!
    The favorite item I have now is a Pampered Chef utensil holder that spins. I keep my basic supplies in it. Scissors, acrylic mounts for stamps, adhesives, etc.

  17. corinne says:

    my favorite item is my ikea cabinet with all the different drawers, cubbies and parts you can put inside!

  18. Kathy Grigas says:

    This storage is perfect. I definitely have to find the corner shelves. Love what you have done with the large rolls of paper. (I never know how to store them). Thanks for sharing.

  19. Regena O says:

    I love my cubes too! I have a few from Michaels, Oriental Trading (that quit selling them though) and the majority from Hobby Lobby. I am going to have to check out the drawer dividers though. Love the idea of storing paints like that. Thanks for sharing!

    • Laura Silva says:

      You’re welcome! I love to have the paints upside down so I can see them. If you are worried about them spilling, you can always take a q-tip and paint a small dot of the color on the top of the bottle. Works the same without the potential mess! :)

  20. Miriam Prantner says:

    Oh what a nice space you have! So organized, I love it!

  21. Kay H. says:

    I love your cubes and how versatile they sound. Some day my craft room is going to be organized enough I can actually work in it.

  22. The drawer unit that my husband built for me!

  23. Ninch says:

    Love your storage idea.

  24. Loving those cubes… I make do with a huge Expedit! can’t enter the contest (Canadian reader) but good luck to those who can!

  25. katie brooks says:

    Jealous of this space, wonderful!

    • Laura Silva says:

      Thanks so much! It really is a small space, but I am able to pack a lot in there with the cubes. I was able to purchase them over time with some major coupons and a few I found on Craigslist!

  26. Those cubes are great! Your craft area is so neat and tidy! I am currently on the hunt for additional storage pieces. My husband built me a storage unit, which I love, but I’m needing some additional pieces since my stash has grown so much over time!! Yikes!

    • Laura Silva says:

      Neat and tidy in this picture, but right now is extremely messy. Being creative is not a tidy activity! ;) But, the cubes make it easy to clean up when I am finished!

  27. I love the storage unit!!

  28. Katina says:

    Love your storage space!

  29. Makalah says:

    I have a bunch of these cubes too! Love them! :)
