MFT Creative Chat - Embellishments!

It's time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You'll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT forum.  This month, we were asked the following questions:  

Show us how you store your embellishments.
What are your absolute favorite embellishments?
Any tips or tricks on how to use embellishments on stamped creations?

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team.

I use two Craftsman rolling tool chests in my stamp room to store all sorts of stuff.  Here is a look at the one that is to my direct left when I am stamping.  You can see that I have my Big Shot on top, along with a basket that holds my embossing folder, a Stack & Store Holder as well as my Stampin' Scrub.

Here is a peek into the top drawer in this cabinet.  This drawer holds LOTS of embellishments.  I use a variety of containers to hold all the different types of embellishments.  I LOVE these favor tins...I got mine in Michaels but these are just like them.  They hold lots of little things and have a clear top so it's easy to see what you are storing.

The second drawer holds some other embellishments I reach for...Hodgepodge Hardware, twine, cork, flowers, etc.   This drawer is a bit deeper so I can fit more stuff.

The last thing I use to store my embellishments is the Stack and Store (I think that is what it's called) container from Stampin' Up.  My absolute FAVORITE embellishment has to be brads, and this makes organizing them a breeze.  I have ALOT so I usually have one color per container, but sometimes I keep similar colors together in the separated containers.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!  MFTeasers start tomorrow night so I hope to see you back then!!
