Hello every one, today I am here with my post for Craft Storage Ideas and I am going to share with you a fabulous studio and you will just drool when you see it. Katie Tate from Both Sides of The Paper has an amazingly organized and well thought out space to work and play in. Katie lives just up the road from me,, I am going to have to get up there to see her space in person pretty soon. I may never leave once I get there! Here are some of my favorite spots in her room;

 Katie says:    Here is my wonderful desk! The work surface is a full 4' by 5', lots of space to spread out. The island is made of Jetmax cubes that are raised up on my plinth that my lovely husband made from wooden and base board molding. The top is a piece of MDF trimmed with wooden beading and then painted white to match. The front side holds all my 12" by 12" cardstock and my paper stacks and other designer paper. (Below) On this side are small drawers that hold my wooden dies, Sizzix dies and Big Shot dies.

Did someone say punches???? Take a look at this!!

Here is my wall of punches. These are all "old style" pre Martha Stewart. I have been a "Punch addict" since I started paper crafting and so have gathered a big collection. Sadly these tend to get a little neglected in favor of the newer styles but some, such as circles, squares, tags etc, will always be used.

Martha! I use can risers to store the punches as it makes a little space work really well. I got mine at Target but I know the container store sells them too in the pantry section.

This is my Expedit and it holds (going from top to bottom) my rubber stamps, my color cubes, Christmas products and then my acrylic stamps.

There are lots more photos and a video of Katie's studio so be sure to stop by and take a look. You will be amazed at what you see.
