2011 Organizing Guide: Photo and Scrapbook Storage

Are you a crafter who is lucky enough to have a dedicated room, shelf or table for your craft projects? Do you find that your creative tools and materials manage to expand beyond the boundaries of the space you allotted for them? Ours certainly do, so we wanted to get right to the point this week and share our favorite solutions to get a home crafting space under control.

If you always have multiple craft or scrapbooking projects going at once our variety of project cases will keep everything together and out of the way when you’re not working on them. Plus, they travel well – so if you’re part of a scrapbooking group or you’re taking classes or attending seminars somewhere, these come in handy:
