Project Life Week 9 and storage ideas

Hi All, Happy Tuesday. I am back with my Project life Week #9 Post.  I am loving the Studio Calico PL Kit.  For this week's layout, I used mostly SC February PL Kit, some Studio Calico Printables (From some classes and other offerings). I also used some Printables (That I cut out in advance), some SC Here and There Die Cuts also on this week's LO.

This week was a pretty slow week and I did not have too many photos, so I did use quite a few filler cards this week, which I love...:))

As usual, I am playing along with Kristin's Currently Challenge and I am also linking this up to "The Creative Mom" Blog. Sadly, I do not have a freebie today either. It was a bit busy week.

Here are some Close Up's from this week,

Now for my storage idea...I saw Ikea Raskog Cart in Pinterest a while back and lot of Studio Calico members have been buying it and it looked like the perfect idea for PL Storage. So, without further ado, I went to Ikea and picked up the Raskog Cart yesterday and today morning, I assembled it and organized my stuff as well. Felt so good. Here are some pics.

The cart with my PL Goodies,

The Top Shelf has two Krus (9x7x3) Containers with dividers and it holds all my stickers, labels, tags etc. The front two portion of the shelf also holds my ink pad, date stamp, some washi tape and some left over card stock etc. The side has my corner chomper and Tim Holtz Stapler.

The Middle Shelf has an Antonius Insert and it holds most of my PL Cards (From Becky Higgins Kit, Studio Calico Kit, Snap, AE Journaling cards etc). The front center holds all the different flair buttons that are still in the package. The back portion also holds my 6x6 paper pads and some other over sized items.
The bottom Shelf for now holds a mug with some of my pens and tools and a Godmorgon Storage Unit from Ikea (Totally inspired by a SC Member, will look up her name). These are thin sheleves and I use them to store my die cuts, flair and other knick knacks. I printed a bunch of printables esp labels and cut them out and this is the perfect storage for them. there is some more space in the back for some paper pads etc.

Here is a close up of the die cuts and cut out printables,

I am so happy and excited about my storage. I hope you like it as well and would love to hear form you about your storage for PL.

Thanks for stopping by,

This is a super fun LO. I love the pic of you and Raj together, and that dinner looks so yummy! Bella is so cute with her hedgehog. Our Mickey loves his stuffed animals too --and Emily's as well, unfortunately!

Wow super nice - the LO and the storage cart. I have something similar but each drawer is more narrow and there are maybe 10 drawers... works for me somewhat. Eagerly awaiting your LO challenge on ICR!

Love the Storage idea...I always seem to run out of space to store my stuff and I hate having to take out 10 different boxes..This seems like a very neat and organizwd idea..Thanks for Sharing.
