Every year with the beginning of a new catalog I need to re-organize my ROYGBIV pads and blends with the change of the In Colors. The cardstock I just organize alphabetically. Plus the cardstock is put away in a file cabinet and cupboard and I can't really see it anyway. But I love looking at ROYGBIV coloring tools. I think it was Granny that originally taught me about ROYGBIV, heck I even love saying it. It stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
I am so bad when it comes to knowing which colors are in the Color families of Stampin' Up!, cause pretty much I don't. Ha!
I love the Storage by Stampin' Up! cause it all just goes so well together, and you can arrange it any way you want really. I love the white color too because it will compliment any color home or studio. I just decorate with stuff with similar colors. Red seems to be what I have a pop of here and there in my studio without even realizing I was doing it.
My ink pads, markers, pencil crayons and ink refills sit behind me on my cupboard. They are easy to get to when I need them.
My Stampin' Blends, Memento Ink Pad and refills,Wink of Stella, Water Painters etc. and are on my desk as I use them all. the. time! I recently did a little rearranging so I got an extra cube and lid so that my Blends were in three tiers into of 2 tall ones. I like this better and I can see over them better too.
Here is a word document I use that I print out so that I can reference back to it when I pull stuff out to stamp with and then forget where they need to go. I hope it helps.
What is your favorite arrangement?

Diana, After putting SU on pause for a few years, I am almost ready to jump back in. I love your organization and the new SU white holders are gorgeous. Before I left, I had just purchased a complete set of SU pads with the new pad design. Then they came out with the new outer design. (Does that make sense?). Because a lot of the pads are still in the plastic shrink-wrap, I don't even want to think about buying new pads. Right now, they are arranged in the OLD SU black "lazy susan" type holder. I have NEVER liked that thing! Anyway, I'm sorry this is such a LOOOOONG question, but do the old SU pads fit in these new white storage trays? It looks like they are roomy enough, but just want to make sure before I purchase. Thanks so much!

Hi Helen, Thanks so much for asking about the new storage before ordering them. Unfortunately the old pads do not fit in them. The new pads are slimmer (wish I could say that about me…but lots of baking and cooking has me not so much). The storage will not sit right with the old pads cause it pushes them up as you have to force the pad in. As you can see I have an old one in the craft white and I keep it in the top open cubbie.
If you have a big wish list, the starter kit is a great deal right now with a free bundle. That way if you decide to get new pads and the storage you can get them with a Demonstrator's discount. Let me know if you need more information.
Have a great week. Hugs, Di

I'm starting to collect the storage items. I started with the Stampin Blends because it was just a pain to dig the zip bag I needed out of the box I had them in. Now I have to work on ones for the link pads. Your pictures helped me finalize my plans. Thanks!

Hi Jackie, they are so fun right? I love looking at them and being organized. I have put my new stampin seal in one of the cubes above my stampin' blends since the picture! Hugs, Di
