Cabinet Cards & Storage Cabinets

Today I have a couple fun cabinet cards to share with you...both made using some of the wonderful collage images available from Altered Pages as well as vintage text, and more!

We're also getting organized here at Altered Pages...offering you tips, tricks and storage ideas that we use in our own artsy areas.

My tip involves embellishments... I like em...a lot!  So I wanted a way I could stay organized at a minimal cost but I also wanted something that was going to withstand lots of use. My solution...small parts organizers from the hardware department of my local farm store!  These handy dandy cabinets come with drawers in all shapes and sizes which are perfect for storing all sorts of things!  They are sturdy enough to hold all the weight of my heavier metal embellishments...

All the way down to my itty bitty brads!

I have 4 different cabinets with various sized drawers that keep me organized and the great thing is when I need an embellishment I just pull out the individual drawer, take it to my work area.  No sorting, no muss, no fuss!    


  1. Wonderful cabinet cards Roni! Are they attached to those wire frames? I love the images as well as the stitching on he one card!
    So many bits and bobs- that's just a sneak peak- I want to see more! teeheehee ")

  2. Great idea about storing embellishments. I've even seen some of those drawers at yard sales. Our local Joann's is moving and has a lot of their stuff clearanced. going to run down there today & see if I can find anything useful for storage!!

  3. The cards are super! Love the colors and backgrounds. and YES you do seem to love the embellishments!

  4. Great cards! Love your use of cabinet that originally are used for hardware. Once I finish my craft room I will have to check into some of those for my massive collection of embellishments.

  5. Beautiful Cards Roni and a great storage idea for all those little bits! xx

  6. Very nice cards! Love your storage idea♥

  7. I shared the card with the Green Stamps on Pinterest and face book! I remember sitint and putting them in the little books and hording them until I could get some impractical .

  8. Great cabinet cards, Roni. And a great way to store your embellishments, too! TFS some great ideas.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
