Hi there, Peeps!! Happy FRIDAY! I have a handy little storage solution to share with you today. Tami McBeain from Studio 3 Solutions, emailed me not long ago asking if I'd be interested in trying out one of their new Color Cubbies. I was happy to try it out since I previously didn't have a very good plan for storing my Copics and other markers. Tami sent the Color Cubbie right over and I have to say that I am so impressed with the quality of the cubbie (it's so sturdy) as well as how much storage it actually provides without taking up much of a "footprint" in my studio. You can see in the photo above, that it tucks nicely up against the wall on my sewing desk, right next to my Clip-it-Up. The Color Cubbie can hold 120 Copic markers, although you can see I've got a ways to go to fill it up completely!
As you can see here, it holds all of my Copics as well as my old collection of Stampin' Up! markers. Also, see the piece of paper in the bottom of the photo? That's Papertrey's color chart for the Copic markers that coordinate with Papertrey's Perfect Match colors. (Just click on the "Download Copic chart" button when you're on the PTI page) I printed that sheet out and keep it with my Copics so if I need to find specific colors to coordinate with whatever colors I'm using on a project, I can quickly determine which colors to grab from my cubbie. I keep the color chart folded up and tucked in the top section of the cubbie as you can see in the photo below.
The shelves of the cubbie are slightly slanted to the back making it easier to read the numbers on the ends of the markers. I LOVE having my markers stored relatively flat versus standing on end, so that the ink is evenly distributed between the two tips of the marker.
Just look at how many Copics you can fit on each shelf of this baby! I grouped mine by color family.....reds/yellows/oranges, pinks/purples, blues/greens, browns/neutrals and I use the bottom shelf for my SU! markers.
I would highly recommend the Color Cubbie! (and no, I'm not being paid to say that! Ha.)
Head over to Studio 3 Solutions to check them out for yourself. They're a great value at just $16.95. (Thanks so much, Tami. I love my cubbie!)
I also wanted to let you know that I'm in the process of loading more cards back into my Raspberry Suite Etsy Shop so feel free to pop over and take a peek!
Have a FABBY weekend,
