The Ultra Scrapbook Storage Unit is the most versatile of all Sharon's Scrappy Space storage units! It will hold all your punches and just about any stamping and scrapbooking products you would want to store! The photos above show only a few combinations of ways to store your crafting supplies. The possibilities are endless!

Included with the Ultra Scrapbook Storage Unit are a number of different lengths of blocks, slat spacers and dowels so that you can fully customize your unit to suit your own needs. The slat spacers are used to make your favorite supplies fit. For example, in the photos, slats are used to as space to fit my ink pads to fit in some shelf cubbies. Blocks are used to add tiered shelving and to place behind smaller product on cubby shelves so your products won't slide in cubbies and be difficult to get ahold of. Small bumper stickers are included to place on end of dowels to hold them firmly in place.

Disclaimer: All my storage units only show Stampin Up products, but it is not made specifically for Stampin Up supplies. As a Stampin Up Demonstrator, I am contracted to only promote Stampin Up supplies so that is why you will see only Stampin Up product in all my storage units.

Behind Scenes Of Building Punch Storage Units

When I first started Sharon's Scrappy Space website, my main reason was to share scrapbook storage solutions and ideas with others. Although I have become a Stampin Up Demonstrator and love doing tutorials and sharing projects using Stampin Up products and I still have a passion for scrapbook storage and organization.

Many of you have emailed me or posted comments on my website and YouTube channel about my storage ideas and tips. Those comments and emails inspired me to take the plunge design and start making scrapbook storage units, which has been a dream of mine for a while now. I chose to start with punch storage units because there are very few options for punch storage especially for the newer style of punches that Stampin Up and other leading companies sell.

It is amazing what all is involved in producing these units. When I first got the idea, I never dreamed of what all was involved. But when I get an email from someone who just their unit and they love it, it makes my day like nothing else! It makes all the time, money and energy worth it and inspires me to keep going.

As you know from my last article, my husband Francis and I went to Hot Springs, Arkansas and met up with my brother Donald to build the first "Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit". My brother Donald and I worked closely together to build each new unit. There is a lots and lots of measuring and remeasuring and many discussions (sometimes slightly heated LOL) on how best to build them. It boggles our brains, with all the measurements and figuring out how best to make them.

Here are a couple photos of us working on the new "Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit". (You will have to excuse my lack of makeup and hair styling LOL! We are both covered with saw dust and do not look our best but that is the reality of being in the shop).

If you are wondering why we go to Hot Springs, Arkansas to build the units, it is because my mother has graciously allowed us use her garage to set up our wood working shop, and use her front living room as our shipping office. While my brother and I both don't live in Hot Springs, it has given me the opportunity to set up a shop to get started. The best part is that it gives us opportunity spend time together as a family. Do I have a wonderful family or what? They have been so awesome to help me see my dreams realized.

The first "Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit" has been built and I have it here and will soon be posting photos of many ways to store scrapbook and stamping supplies. I am so excited I can't hardly stand it! Personally I think this unit is the best yet! This is the unit that I have been waiting for to use myself!

When we got home last night with the new "Ultra Unit", I couldn't wait to try it out! I was up past midnight rearranging all my supplies on it and I have to say I LOVE IT! What I love so much about this unit is that it holds the majority of supplies that I use most and need to have easy access to.

Photos will be coming soon! In a few days I will have the first 5 units available for sale. I am so excited I feel like a kid at Christmas!

Please feel free to ask questions and leave comments. I would love to know of any storage challenges you have and what you would like to see in future designs of storage units.

The "Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit"

Hello Friends,

Today, I can't contain my excitement! My husband are headed to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where we are going to oversee the construction of the prototype of my newest unit in stamping and scrapbook storage! This unit has been a vision of mine for the last year and finally, it will become a reality.

The "Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit" will hold everything you will need to have close at hand and it is the one I am most excited about! It is designed to have a place for your flat punches as my other units do but it will also have shelves with adjustable cubbies, so you will be able to customize "The Ultra" to suit your own personal needs. Now there will be a shelf to hold it all!

Soon I will be posting photos of "The Ultra Scrappy Storage Unit" and show you multiple ways to store your paper crafting supplies!
