I have both machines and use them almost everyday. So I am looking for a way to keep them both out and useable but in an organized or efficient manner. Does anyone have wall shelves or book shelves or some other great idea? Obviously it needs to have both space in the front and back to allow for cutting. Am I asking for too much??

How/Where do you keep your electronic cutters?

Thanks, Mandy

I have both also. I had considered the "ladder" shelves. That's what I call them anyway. I saw quite a few stores that had options when I was looking around They have very open shelves plenty of room for both and then also to store your other items in baskets (or whatever you prefer) that you use with both cutters. I went with a "use what you have" method. But if i ever redo my room. That wil be the way I go.

I have them both too. I keep the cameo on my work table/desk. And I have a small computer desk beside my table to the left that I keep my laptop and expression on. I just put my expression where the printer would normally go.

That way everything is within reach and I can quickly cut out something when I need it. I use my cameo a lot more but my kids will use the expression for their projects.

Thanks for the responses. I would really like a stackable type option to take less surface space, but I'm not coming up with any options. Anyone else?

I have my cricut on top of a short bookshelf (3 shelf) and I have my wishblade on a table behind my main desk. The table is mainly used for that and my sewing machine resides there. Also if someone comes over they could scrap there. I just bring down my laptop when I want to use the wishblade.

I have both too! I use the BESTA shelf unit Article Number: 401.021.29 and the INREDA pull-out frame Article Number: 501.444.97 and the are stored right on top of each other. Al I do is roll it out for cutting - it's perfect and doesn't take up a lot of space.

Let me know if a pic would help!

I just googled those items....the pull out drawer is a good suggestion for having the extra room but can push back when not in use.

I got rid of my CE after I bought the Cameo. I keep mine in my closet on a shelf but I took the doors off so it's open all the time.

If you want them on your desk top I would stack on top of each other. You could just use a flat shoe rack type of thing and offset it so the bottom one sits out a bit further than the top in order to get to the controls.
