Final Desk Setup: Stamp-N-Storage Organization

Doesn't it look great?  Clearly, I will need to work at my desk before I know if this configuration will work for me, but aesthetically, it looks amazing.   I am very happy with it.  I had to move a number of things around, but I had already anticipated that.  Many of the items that were here in baskets will be reorganized and likely end up in a drawer.  The inks and many of my Project Life cards (at least the partial kits that I had no boxes for) were in the two sets of Alex Drawer units (from Ikea) that hold most of my essentials.  I'll do a video of my entire work area and include photos at a later date.  This week it's all about my Stamp-N-Storage units.  I thought I had way more Stampin Up' ink than I actually have and I'm glad that I have room to grow.  The ones in the very middle column are all still in their packaging so I haven't attached their labels, yet.  In addition to the 29 SU ink pads, I also have 5 of the new Heidi Swapp inks that Michael's is carrying on the far left and there are 4 Hero Arts Shadow inks and 2 American Crafts inks (the ones that were $1.49 or $1.99 at Tuesday Morning).

 *Sigh* I could just stare at my scrap desk all day.  In fact, as I'm writing this up from my computer desk (which is also in my scrap room), I keep turning to take it all in.  What can I say?  Organizing makes my heart happy.

I don't have a need for a combination organizer from Stamp-N-Storage, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it from them.  I did want to make sure I had room to grow, though, so I purchased the 60 Ink Pad Organizer when it was on sale a few weeks back.  There are several combinations including an organizer for the entire 48 Distress Ink pad set from Ranger/Tim Holtz.  The only thing the biggest combo holder doesn't hold is the lone Picket Fence marker since it doesn't have an ink pad or re-inker that coordinates.  The quality of construction is superb and I was surprised to learn that horizontal dividers actually come out.  For all I know, it is stated on the website and I never bothered to read it.  Ha!

Lastly, here is a peek at the project life organizer full of goodies.  If you recall from yesterday's post, I hadn't quite filled it, yet.  The only thing I didn't stick in here were the Sunshine 4x6's.  As I was going through that kit, I realized that I really don't like it all that much.  I will probably end up pulling a handful that I like and sell the rest of the kit.  I am falling more and more in love with this unit by the minute and just couldn't be happier with my purchase.  There are many times when I get buyer's remorse because of the cost of something even if it's a practical use item but NOT this time.  There is definitely no regret here.  I can't wait to jump in and get some scrapping done with this amazing view to keep me inspired.
