I am ready to sign myself up as a traveling salesman for Urbio. No kidding. I think this system is the best. I use it in my new and improved Crib Meets Craft closet and love it. The modular design of the plates make this a great storage solution for crafters. If you have a Container Store in your area, take a look at the Urbio system and play with the different configurations. And, while you’re there you can take a look at some of my other favorite organizational solutions for crafters like the Linus Cabinet Organizers, which I use for organizing my stamps – or the Clear Shirt Drawers which are great for storing large spools of ribbon. To learm more about Urbio, you can take a peek at the installation video to see more of how this system works. Seriously – you should watch the video. Can you tell I’m a fan.


Erin Condren planners are probably very familiar to you. They are awesome. I love mine and I’m pretty sure you’ll love yours too – if you don’t already own one. They are colorful and come packed with tons of organizational accessories including stickers, personalized labels, a plastic zipper pencil holder, a perpetual calendar for keeping track of yearly events and interchangable laminated covers that can be customized with photos and your name…and THAT’S standard on these planners. When you take a look at all the add ons – there are even more options. I own a standard planner without any of the additional add on items, and I could not be happier with how jam packed it is with everything I need to stay organized all year long. With the new year upon us, you should probably take a look at Erin Condren !

These storage binders are just the smartest thing ever. They keep your metal dies tucked away yet incredibly easy to access. I love that I can label the spine and organize them like a library of books. I opt to organize similar dies together, even if they are from different manufacturers. This way, you make the most of your storage binders and it’s easier to remember exactly what you have available to you. The other plus is that Little B packages ALL of their dies in these storage binders. So if you order a Little B die set, it shows up at your door perfectly organized. Some of my favorite Little B dies are the Holiday Die Set, Bouquet Die Set, Boxes & Bows Die Set.

    1. Oh, it would take me an hour to clean up my space. I actually need a better system for storing my mounted stamps even though most of my newer purchases are unmounted stamps.

  1. It would take me about 1 to 2 hours to clean my craft room right now. My paper is in need of an organizational solution..I have different piles of full and scrap paper all over the room!

  2. My stamps and dies are in desperate need of some new, updated organization. What I had was working, but I have since outgrown it and it seems to be time to find something new.

  3. I have to keep my craft space very clean…I have kitties who like to run off with my crafty supplies. Anything I use goes right back to its place when I am finished using it, otherwise it will disappear! 😉

  4. I just have a tiny Desk to work on, but i still have organization. i like my room, but i love your Craft-room i think its so beautiful…:D

  5. It would probably take quite a while to clean up right now since I’m in the middle of making Christmas cards and tags!

  6. I’m still trying to come up with a good scrap paper organization that works for me. I’ve tried a few different things that have been okay so far, but have a tendency to reach for new things rather than search my scraps.

  7. My craft room is pretty organized, but my desk is a mess! It’ll be after the holidays before it gets back to normal though. 🙂

  8. Oh Boy!!! What a question. I have been VERY busy in my room and it is as big a mess as it has ever been. It would take hours and I am not sure where those hours are coming from…
    AFTER the Holidays for sure
    Thanks for the chance to win

  9. It would take at least a week to clean up my craft space(s). It will wait until after the holidays. The biggest challenge is trying to organize the little bits of things so they are easily accessible.

  10. I need a way to organize all my little embellishments and stamp sets to know what I have. I hate having to dig through everything!

  11. It would take at least a week to clean my craft space(s). The biggest challenge is organizing the little bits so they are easily accessible. If you can’t get to them easily, you won’t use them.

  12. It’s going to take several days to clean up my craft room. I’m having 2 closets made into one so I have the closet items boxed and sitting around waiting for the work to get done. Then I can get organized (I hope it will look like your closet at the end). As I’m going thru I want to make a copy of all the dies I have so I can look at the samples rather than root thru everything to see if I have the die I want to use for a project.

  13. If I didn’t have to go to work, I MIGHT be able to get my craft room in shape in about a week. Maybe. My dream is if I linger in craft stores long enough someone will one day ask me if they can fix my space like they do on the HGTV shows 🙂 I’m good at buying but not so great at organizing it! Thanks for sharing this info and having the giveaways!

  14. I think the question for me might be which supplies DON’T need a solution, haha! I kind of have solutions, but wish most were visible, because when I put things out of sight they become out of mind and I forget to use them.

    1. Oops! I responded before seeing the question I was supposed to respond to. So on that note, it would take a good 3-4 hours if not more to tidy up my craft room!

  15. I don’t have a dedicated craft space, which is the bulk of my issue when it comes to staying organized. Since my living space is small, so is my storage, and my crafty stash is spread out into a variety of nooks and crannies. Someone above mentioned scraps, and I have to agree that’s always been a problem for me too!

  16. I just moved last month, and I am STILL attempting to organize my crafting space, mainly because I am downsizing…big time! So 6-8 weeks. OUCH!

  17. Such a great post today! Sometimes I love organizing my crafting supplies more than creating with them!! hehe It would take me about two hours to clean up my craft area from my holiday cardmaking mess this past weekend!

  18. I wish there was a better craft solution for ink pad solutions!! Too bad all ink pads don’t come in a standard size!!

  19. I normally only need to clean up my work tables and it takes 30 – 45 minutes. I like to keep everything in matching storage boxes so I don’t see visual clutter. I do wish I didn’t have such a mess when I craft! Especially when I am working on one project and get diverted to a couple of others. Then I have product out all over the space! Thanks for your videos. They are so professional but also so entertainingly Amber!
    Can I ask about your black and white wall panels? So cool to be able to change out with the different colors. Thank you!

  20. Oh my goodness!!!! I absolutely love this post. I just spent 30 minutes going through your Crib Meets Craft closet post and LOVED everything you did! I’m so inspired to get my craft area organized (maybe not until after the holidays…LOL!!!) You are absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to get myself to the Container Store. How long would it take me to organize my craft area????? With my work schedule, I would honestly have to say it would take me a good 2 months. After seeing your organized closet, I would love to add some color to my craft room. That alone could take a couple weekends, at least. I’m itchin’ to get started!! Thank you for sharing your organizing tips.

  21. Love the outtake at the end.
    I’ve been eying those Urbio magnetic holders but it looks to me like if you have something in a container on the bottom you can’t access it too well if you use the spaces at the top of the mounting plate too. So each plate, even though it has 4 mounting spots, has only two usable ones.

  22. Where I need most work for organizing is with my stamps. I love to shop!! LOL!!! There are so many wonderful companies out there. While I have tried to manage my stamps by at least keeping them organized by company, I’m not sure that’s working out for me. I’m now thinking that they need to be organized by theme. I just need to make the decision and move forward!!! I love the idea of using the Linus Organizers for my stamps. Thanks again for all of your inspiration on getting organized. I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions (because I’ve failed so many times in the past…LOL!!), but I am definitely going to resolve to get organized in 2015!!! YAY!!!

  23. I wish I could figure out how to store all the embellishments that coordinate with the paper collections I buy!!!

  24. It would take me a couple of weeks because it is not at all organized right now. Just a bunch of stuff put wherever it will fit on shelves 🙂

  25. Not sure what needs more organization help – my ever-growing stash of fabric or my rainbow piles of embroidery floss. Seems like every time I enter a craft store, I end up buying the same things b/c I don’t realize that I already have them!

  26. I LOVE organizing. I just bought an Erin Condren planner and LOVE it! My scrapbook stuff still needs organization (and just a place since our apartment is tiny), but my stamps and dies are organized like Jennifer McGuire’s and I love that organization. 🙂

  27. I absolutely love to organize everything that I possibly can! What a great post, as always. Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. I am in need of a few storage containers to keep my scrapbooking papers in order! I am currently trying to organize my craft space right now and hopefully it will only take a couple of days!

  29. It would probably take me 5-6 hours to really really clean things up and sort. My biggest problem is paper scraps.

  30. Right now, it would take me and hour to clean up. BIG THUMBS UP! to Little B for making storage binders for dies. My dies are still in their original packaging which takes up space and finding what I want is time consuming.

  31. It was a mess….stamp sets…inks…papers…BUT it took me about 1-2 hours to get it back to clean and orderly…until the next project…lol

  32. I’m currently reorganizing and cleaning my craft space… I’ve been at it already a week (a little here and there), and I expect it to take another week to finish!

    1. I need to find a better way to organize 12 x 12 paper, I have 3 separate systems right now, and I don’t LOVE any of them!

  33. I am finding that as my collection of paper crafting supplies grows… err explodes, I need a new storage method.
