Croppin on the Go Tips with Luisa!

Hi Divas!  It's Luisa again...  this week am sharing with you some of my storage solutions when "croppin on the go".

As much as I enjoy creating at my house, lately have been croppin basically at crops.  Few months ago I changed my All My Memories tote to this CTMH My Acrylix Organizer.  It measures about 8"x8" (sorry I did not measure it), but it holds tons of things.  With this Organizer plus my paper trimmer and some paper am ready to create.

 
Now, what's inside this toolbox?  All these tools and supplies:


















Here is a list of what I manage to put into it:
3 scissors
1 Bone folder
2 Tombow dispensers
1 roll of pop dots
1 roll of jumbo glue dots
1 Sanding kit
1 Bonding memories glue pen
1 Bonding memories jumbo pen
1 zig adhesive pen
4 Markers
1 Diamond Glaze
2 roll of thin glue dots 9extreme
1 Exacto knife
1 Corner rounder
1 Piercing kit
1 Piercing mat
1 pack of square pop dots
2 Distress mini inkpads
1 Stamp Cleaner 9spray)
1 Shade a Pearl
1 Mini Staple
1 1" Circle Punch

I realized I don't need a huge tool box.  This small box contains all the basic tools I need to cut, fold, distress, adhere and more.  As I mentioned early with this toolbox, my portable trimmer and paper am good to create!

Now... I also want to share how I store my distressing sponges.  I punch a label in the color of each inkpad shade that am using and then I store them by color in this drawer:

 

When am going to a crop, I put them in this ziplock, with the ones that I will use. 


 Remember I make page kits, so I know which colors I need! And guess what?  This ziplock bag fits inside the tool box and I can close it perfectly without trouble!

This is my "toolbox system" which works perfectly to take to crops or to my living room and create there!

Hope you find this post interesting and please share what is inside your toolbox with us!

Hugs and blessings,
