My Scrap Room

As usual, I'm a horrible updater. Anyways I spent a good part of May reorganizing and cleaning my scrap room. I never knew what I had (and I have a lot of it, lol) and where it was. Here is my new and improved scraproom. Now all I need is another Basic Grey Magnetic mat, so I can work on my 2 page LOs at one time, and a clip it up. I am still on the fence about the clip it up....

This is the right side of my craft room. My computer sits right next to my desk so that I can watch TV (it's got one of those channel tuner things). On my craft desk I keep my embellishment center, my making memories turntable thingie where I keep my most used tools, a basket that holds pens horizontally, a basket for misc. stamps, and another basket that holds different products that I might use in hte near future. Under my desk are 12x12 Sterilite boxes that hold different things.

On the left side of my room, I have a wire rack for solid color cardstock, more sterilite boxes that organize embellies and such by color, two sets of pegboard, a changing table (I love this thing) that I use for cutting and my sizzix die cuts, and a smaller desk with my mini sewer and a basket for paper scraps on it. The drawers of my changing table hold my punches, sizzix die cuts, and acrylic paint, and some other misc. things. I keep all of my completed pages in the white boxes, because I don't have any albums (I have no idea what kind of album I would like to use).

My collections of patterned papers (another addiction) are housed in huge sterilite boxes. I use to keep them out in the open, but Liam has decided he likes to tear patterned paper the best. I seperate each collection into 12x12 plastic envelopes, and when I have scraps I leave them with the collection. I am not much on picking papers that match, so it helps me to keep everything together.

So here's a view of all of my patterned paper collections, I know it is shameful. Trey calls me a collector. Along with the smaller collections (basic grey, I keep my larger pp pads in here as well. I have made a vow not to buy any more of these boxes, and I can't buy new collections until I use up some of the ones I have. This way, I don't constantly have to find ways to expand.

My pegboard holds most of my embellishments. Like my patterned paper, I have too much of pretty little things. It also holds my smaller acrylic stamps (prima stamps, studio g, etc..) I try to keep only lighter things on here, because I don't want my wall to fall apart, lol!

Under my desk are my sterilite boxes. I have my drawers organized into: adhesives, circle cutter and coluzzle, tools (hole punches, crop a dile, rulers, wire cutters), stamping stuff (ink pads, blocks, and embossing powder), foam stamps, pazzles stuff, stitching stuff, scrap ribbon, border punches, magazine clippings, misc stickers (that would work well with cards), blank cards and envelopes, die cut punchies, foam and felt punchies, acrylic shapes and chipboard, alphabet letters (I actually need two drawers for this, but thickers smush really well), and a drawer for all my journaling blocks (another addiction).
On one of Trey's bookshelves I have several different glass jars for flowers and one specifically for lace ribbon.
Next to my filing cabinet that holds my small solid paper sorted by color and our bills (I don't like that drawer) is a small table that holds my Pazzles. This tool cost a lot of money, but it was such a great investment. Not only will it cut any true type font, but you can buy or make designs that you can cut on here. I wish I was artistic enough to make my own, but I usually buy a lot from This bad boy will also cut thin chipboard, acrylic, felt, and vinyl. I usually spend a day cutting up all my scrap paper into little punchies that I can just add on my pages, later on.

Well that's my scrap room. It's not fancy, and it doesn't really coordinate like some designer scrap rooms, but it's all mine and I have a ton of room. I'm not sure what I would do if I had to fit all this stuff in a smaller space, lol. Hopefully when we move out of the house we rent, and buy our own place we will still have room for me to have a scrap space! Thanks for visiting my blog!
