Tips for Crafts and Hobbies

Let your creativity run wild - not the mess.

For the home hobbyist, an organized workspace is a happy workspace. Whether you sew, scrapbook, paint, bead, or collect, it's important to be able to quickly find the supplies you need. A simple, affordable organization system will help make you a more efficient crafter, allowing you to complete high-quality projects sooner instead of searching for supplies. UniKeep has what it takes to fuel your creativity while helping you keep it all together.

Let UniKeep help your hobbies with these crafting concepts:

  • Collect inspiration - Ideas and inspiration can strike at any time, but sometimes it needs a boost. Keep an eye out for concepts that can be incorporated into your next project, whether it's a paint sample at a hardware store or a clipping from a magazine. Gather these samples and spend some time looking through them next time you're in need of creative direction. UniKeep binders are perfect for keeping these odds-and-ends safe and contained.
  • Keep a clean workspace - It's important to keep a workspace that you like to spend time it. It's hard to get the creativity flowing when you have to work around messy piles of clippings and spent supplies. Keep a separate, clearly labeled container for yarn, brushes, stamps, and scrap paper. By sorting your supplies as you use them, you can keep your creative momentum and find what you need more easily when you need it later. UniKeep's rigid, stackable design makes it ideal for shelf storage has plenty of space for labeling.
  • Keep it colorful - Surround yourself with creative concepts that can be worked into your projects. By personalizing your workspace with elements that represent your taste and style, you can create a refuge that gets your idea mill churning. Do away with boring 3-ring binders and discover UniKeep's range of customization options, from colorful binders and pages to custom-printing that pops. Make it yours.

How do you use your UniKeep?

Comments

I am a scrapbook artist who uses a lot of rubber stamps in my work. I also belong to a monthly scrapbooking club called Club Scrap (www.clubscrap.com) who send out one or two stamps in each kit and also sell coordinating mounted and un-mounted rubber stamps as one of their added features. Recently I chose to un-mount all my wooden stamps for storage reasons (too many wooden blocks - not enough craft space!).

Along with my now un-mounted stamps, I have some that have never been mounted. They are commonly referred to as UMs (unmounteds). UMs are usually purchased as a sheet of 5x8 rubber with many designs on it. I cut them each out and then paint Aleene's Tack it Over and Over glue on the back. When the glue is dry, the stamp is ready to use by adhering it to a clear acrylic block. The advantage to using UMs is that you only need one or two acrylic blocks instead of tons of wooden ones.

When I am done with a design and want to put it away for safekeeping, I clean it and then stick it onto the front of an 8.5x11 page protector with plain white cardstock inserted for stability. On the back of the cardstock of the facing page protector, I have stamped the images for identification and organization. The page protectors full of UMs are stored in a 3-ring binder with a zipper closure to prevent any small stamps from falling off and getting lost in transit.

A few months ago I found the 1" UniKeep® View Case Binders at Sam's Club. I started using them to store my stamps and found I could organize them better. They are also easier to store on my shelves and I like that I can insert my own cover design and spine label. I went back to Sam's Club today to get more but they didn't have them. I hope more are on the way...especially the colored ones!

If you would like to introduce your binders to a great group of scrapbookers around the world (hint, hint), I would encourage you to contact Club Scrap. They include product samples and/or fliers from many companies to all their members in the monthly kits. I believe they currently have close to 5,000 members (or more). The members are always looking for new storage solutions.
