Step 4 Organizing Your Craft Room: yep it is moving a little slow; but we are getting it done. After all the room will be our relaxation, escape, and favorite room of the house.

In step 4 we are going to discover the bulk items. Paper crafters, this is your paper, quilters this is your fabric, knitters your yarn. These items that up the bulk of your room, but can get into a “Total Mess.” (And it can only take 2 seconds to put your craft room in total state of emergency)

Colors of the Rainbow for organizing your colors.

Organize your Paper

Organizing your paper with all the pretty colors is one of the most fun supplies to take on. You’ve already mapped out where your paper will go, now let’s think about how you plan on organizing all the beautiful colors and patterns. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before organizing your paper:

  • Do I store my paper by color, theme, or pattern?
  • Do I store my paper vertically or horizontally?
  • Is sunlight a concern?
  • Do I have a place for paper scraps?
  • How will I store my 6×6 paper or pre-cut card bases (5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock)?
Storing your 12″ x 12″ by color, laying flat is the best way to prevent warping. Stamp-n-Storage offers you shelves to fit either standard or IKEA.
8 1/2″ x 11″ paper is best stored flat, but Stamp-n-Storage does offer an upright position. It works, but it not my favorite. I like to store books or albums on the side. Then I can save the cost of the extra side piece
No matter the size paper, these items store great and act as a great base for your desk top. Creating a good store place for these basic products is important and will make a hug difference in how happy you are with your new crafting space.


When organizing your paper it is important to understand what works for your friend might not work for you. Organizing is personal and you have to do what works best for you. When deciding if you should organize by color, theme, pattern or brand, consider what makes the most sense in your mind. It might make sense to use one system for solid colors, and another for design paper. Our favorite way to organize scrapbook paper is by rainbow color for solid colors, and by theme for design paper.


In addition to your needs, also need to consider the needs of your space. 

  • How much room is available for organizing paper? 
  • Is that available space on the wall, floor or desk?
  • Do you have open space on shelving units? 
  • Is our craft area confined to our desk because it is a shared space? 
Organize your craft room in away that it will force you to keep it organized. Label where everything goes.
