I’ve returned to my love of memory keeping recently and last month undertook a huge month-long project called December Daily where I chronicled our every day stories in a 6×8 album. I knew I’d have to travel with most of my supplies for our annual trek out to the family house in Utah in order to keep up with my commitment to complete the album within the first couple of weeks of the new year. Luckily, I had purchased a great storage case that I wanted to review in an upcoming planner-related video. I realized it would fit all I needed (and then some!) perfectly for my trip. Today I’m sharing how I packed this case which is intended for planner-related storage with all crafty things.
The Create 365 Storage Case is available at crafting supplies stores that sell The Happy Planner products. I found mine at Michaels where it retails for $29.99 but I was able to save 40% off using a coupon. The case is sturdy and well made with smooth zippers, reinforced handles, and mint piping. It measures 12” wide x 10.5” high x 4″ deep and is lightweight thanks to the nylon material. The case features two main compartments, each accessible by a double zipper which open up the case to lay completely flat.
I packed my travel crafting supplies by type and used the various built-in compartments and pockets of the storage case to keep everything organized. Here’s a closer look at the interior of the case and how I packed it:
The front section includes a full zip pocket topped with a slip pouch and a larger clear vinyl zip compartment opposite that.
I packed all of my letter stickers and some ephemera into the zip pocket. I used the slip pouch to keep my stamping supplies together, including a couple of ink pads and my clear stamping block which I laid flat into a zip top bag.
I decided to use the clear vinyl zip compartment to house all of the decor, patterned paper, cards, and stickers I wanted to bring with me so that I could see what I had on hand without having to remove everything everytime I sat down to work on my album. I popped small, like items into zip top bags to keep them together.
The back section of the storage case features a large slip pocket on one side and two zip top style vinyl pouches that velcro into the case to keep them in place.
The two zip top pouches are the perfect size for crafting tools. I tucked my pens and adhesives into one and my other tools such as scissors, a hole punch, and tweezers into the other.
Lastly, I tucked all of my page protectors and photo sleeves into the zip pocket. A place for everything and everything in its place! It was a breeze to pack up and use to work on my album when we were out of town. I kept everything stored in my pouch between crafting sessions, which helped a lot in keeping my much smaller desk space in the Utah house tidy while we were there. It worked out perfectly!
I give a closer look at what I packed into the case in this video if you’re interested:
