Storage tip-kits

Over the past month or so I have been putting together some kits- mini album kits mainly. I have gathered everything needed to complete a mini album except for pictures and adhesive. (Seriously, it has been fun "shopping" in my studio!!! Who knew I had so much stuff? LOL)
Each kit contains chipboard (for the covers and pages), designer paper, coordinating cardstock, ribbon, binder rings and lots of embellishments!! Once I had everything together for my kits, I was then faced with the problem of how to store them. That is when I came up with this idea-

I have storage bags in many sizes- even some large enough to hold 12x12 kits. I also have many clothes hangers-the kind you use for slacks or skirts. And a closet in my studio- how convenient!! And now I have mini album kits hanging in that closet. (If you try this at home, just make sure you clip the hanger so it closes UNDER the zip closure on the bag- or the hanger will slip off the bag. LOL)
So, when I am ready to scrapbook Halloween I just need to grab this bag and I am all set.
Until Later~

Very clever! I don't have a closet in my crafting room though. Oh well, I'm not that organized anyway. LOL

This is awesome! I love anything about organization. The bonus is that it is about organizing my favorite stuff...scrappin' stuff! Thanks for sharing!
