Hi everyone! I've been receiving quite a few emails requesting to show what is inside my craft room cabinets. I have to say that I am very happy with all the storage provided by the Martha Stewart Living™ Craft Furniture. I have 3 pieces and the quality is also very good. I will try to respond to all questions in the pictures that follow. Hope you all enjoy!

I have 2 Three-Drawer Flat-File Cabinets  and one Eight-Drawer Flat-File Cabinet. On top I have a Pottery Barn Smart Technology™ Hutch. 

The first Cabinet holds my Big Shot Pro machine (you will see here an ACCUCUT GrandeMARK machine - I borrowed this weekend to try it out!) - here I make all invitations, cards, boxes, etc. 

The first drawer holds all my plastic bags to send out my orders.

Second drawer holds all the accessories and extra plates for the cutting machines - I have quite a few different machines that I don't use often anymore. When I first started crafting I bought the Lifestyle Epic Letterpress - at the time I really wanted to learn how to letterpress and I did enjoy it a lot! The dies are also very nice and great quality. Once I got into die cutting more I purchased the Sizzix Big Shot. Than came Cricut Expression, Silhouette Cameo (MY FAVORITE) and when I decided to make my own invitations I purchased the Sizzix Big PRO machine.  

Last month the new Cricut Explorer was on sale and I decided to give it a try. I used it a little bit - I like it a lot better than the expression but I still have the Silhouette as my favorite machine - still trying it out and will start making some projects with the new cricut.

Finally on the last drawer I have the small dies from Sizzix, some of the wafer dies from Lifestyle Craft and the accessories for my ZutterBind-it-All machine.

On the bottom I store all my machines - including the Story Book Binder and Laminator Machine and the Xyron Sticker Maker Machine.

The middle cabinet holds a lot of my supplies. I use the counter space to assemble toppers and anything else I am working on. On top I have the Pottery Barn Smart Technology™ Hutch. 
All of my washi tape and small scissors are stored on top.

The first drawer has all my punches. Very handy and well organized!

 On the second I have a variety of supplies such as wood sticks, lollipop sticks, brads, embellishments, buttons, twine, etc.

After I have all my wood mounted stamps. I love stamps but I do not "play" with them often. I guess this is partly because I am not good at, and time is another issue. I follow a few bloggers and I hope one day to find more time to learn some techniques! 


Next I store all my mats, score board, rulers, and some special papers. 

Then I have the 2 smaller drawers - one filled with bigger punches and the other with big spool ribbons.

On the last 2 drawers I have a lot of cupcake cups and paper straws.

Now into the last one!

On top of this third cabinet it's my stamps pads, organized on a unit from Organize More. Great storage for stamps - also holds my silhouette sketch pens. Beside is my recollections™ storage desktop carousel with my most used tools and pens. Recent I purchased a new paper trimmer from X-ACTO - I am very happy because of the laser that helps me to cut exactly where it needs.

storage units from OrganizeMore.

Inside the first drawer I have my adhesives, tapes, glue gun, embossing heat tool, etc.

 Second drawer holds most of my shipping supplies.

Then I have all my envelopes.

On the bottom I have two 8,5" x 11" paper organizers and a basket with white cardstock. 

Well, I can keep going, but I guess this post is already too long. I will post next the other side - my desk - and the bookshelves and closet.
