An I Am Roses Design Team Exclusive! How do you store your I Am Roses flowers?

Hi I Am roses lovelies! Today we have something super fun to share with you today! This is our very first I Am Roses design team EXCLUSIVE! Some of your favorite I Am Roses designers open up their craftroom for you and show you how they store their I Am Roses flowers. They have some GREAT ideas to help get you organized and we hope you enjoy the fun video we put together for you!

First some sneak peeks of picture from the designers....

Patricia has the most GORGEOUS shabby chic scraproom... isn't it just heaven?! What makes it so beautiful? All the I Am Roses flowers on all those spectacular projects showcased on her desk! hehe! But really... she has a GREAT way to store her flowers in this very spacious Malm dresser drawer from IKEA...


Leanne stores her I Am Roses in these bins in her Expedit shelf from IKEA. Don't you just love how functional and chic her storage system looks! "Live, Laugh, Love." Definitely LOVE it!


Yvonne stores her I Am Roses "up close and personal" in a drawer in her craft desk. What a fabulous idea to have your flowers at (literally) arms distance from where you are crafting... easy access to I Am Roses is the key to any little crafter's heart! ❤


Jo stores her beautiful, bountiful stash of I Am Roses flowers in these Sterilite plastic stackable drawers. These drawers are so functional and keeps you super organized! Don't you just love how you can peek through the clear drawers so you know what's inside... just open, grab, create! ❤


Andrea stores her I Am Roses flowers in this cube shelf inside baskets and bins. She stores her flowers by color family... Don't you just LOVE how organized this is and so easy to access when you are in the middle of creating a project. ❤


Arlene stores her I Am Roses flowers in this multi-tier drawer system from IKEA.  Each drawer is organized by color family and type of flower. Loose flowers are kept in small clear bins on the top drawer, organized by flower size.


Last but not least, our lovely Juliana stores her I Am Roses flowers in these clear plastic drawers, much like Jo. Super organized and easy to find what she's looking for! ❤ If you ask her, she will tell you that her pink and white drawer is her favorite! hehe!


So there you have it folks! This is how some of your favorite I Am Roses designers store their I Am Roses flowers. ❤

Thank you to all the designers showing how they store I Am Roses. I also use the steilite stacking drawers and organize by color and size. Thses clear containers make it so easy to see what color and size flowers I want.

Layona said...

I saw the YT vid. I'm gonna utilize the Ikea storage blocks to store all my crafty items.

Treena said...

I have just started to use and purchase flowers from IAR for my projects. When I have a stash worth storing, I will be able to store them away in boxes to keep them safe. Hopefully one day, I'll have enough flowers to be able to store them by style and colour.

Kookaburra Queen said...

TFS, great ideas, I am saving to get the IKEA flat drawer units so I can see them all laid out. Currently most of mine are stored in a shabby chic 3 tier pot plant stand so I can see them all on display as they are so pretty. But I need to make more space for all those lovely new designs. :)

Christine said...

I store my I am roses flowers in two large plastic scrapbook bins. They are starting to "out grow" their container, so the ting of this video is perfect . Thanks for all the different storage ideas.

Lynne said...

Love the YT vid...all great storage ideas.....might just have to move some things around to seperate my flowers by color!! But for now, I have my flowers in 2 large vases that I picked up at IKEA. And I've put my leaves in a small clear storage container.

LaJuan KT said...

Thanks for the ideas... I wish my stash was as massive.

Charlotte Zweigoron said...

I buy beautiful paper covered boxes to store flowers and bring color into my room. I have so many I have to categorize them: Plastic Flowers, Store Brands, Flowers W/Leaves, Flowers WO/Leaves and just Leaves. I have semi-transparent drawer sets that I could use for division of my stock by color which would eliminate my search through all those boxes every time I do a project and am looking for specific colors. I'll be re-arranging things after these peeks at the pros!! TFS!!

Haley said...

I had to look at the pictures several times. Once for the storage ideas and several more to look at all the amazing items and flowers in their scrap areas. I am *swooning* at how lovely everything is. ;)

Gina said...

It was fun seeing how you all store your IAR flowers. Since I don't have as many as I would like, I store mine in a 2 gallon zip loc bag that hangs from a shelf with binder rings....I did a video of how I store my chipboard pieces the same way. Thanks for the peep!

Patrice said...

Thanks for sharing such great organizational ideas! I scrap in a tiny corner of my bedroom so I have mine literally at arms length! The flowers I frequently use are the 1/4", 1/2", and 1-1/4" so those are in clear bins. Everything else are in recycled Avon boxes (lrg rep boxes). But I think it's time to re-organize! Lol

Shirley said...

Right now I have no good storage so this really came at the perfect time...thank you! What great ideas to store our beautiful flowers.

Wow I love looking at other peoples' stash of flowers! Makes me feel like I need more! (Don't tell my husband!)

I store my I Am Roses products in extra large wicker baskets that sit on top of my Ikea Expedit Shelves - they are separated by type of flowers and my skeleton leaves and rose buds are in smaller boxes that I purchased from Michaels. Thanks for sharing all your storage ideas.

I store my roses in a plastic container on my desk....where I can always pull from them.....

judyjohnson45 said...

Loved seeing how the designers store their flowers. I store mine in a cardboard (?) box covered with flower patterned paper that I got at Michael's. It's the kind with the magnetic closure.
