Hey everyone! I'm here to show you a few photos of my scrap studio. Well, It's not actually a studio, it's a balcony off my living room. I love it anyway. This is where I usually spend my days when the kids are in school.
This is how it looks from my living room. Space is limited in Singapore, as you can see. I crammed as much as I can in that little space (it's about 7 x 7). I still have albums stored someplace else. This here, is also as clean as it gets. :)
The IKEA tubs are my favorite. They can fit a lot of stuff too. The one marked 'thickers' has about 65 packs inside it. Definitely can fit more, but I will want to pare down before that happens. :) Cardstocks and Studio Calico embellishments (far right) are in file box and containers bought from the $2 shop. I store all my ink pads + thin dies inside the document drawer (far left), in that same cube, you can also see my beloved cursive typewriter and scoring board. The red tubs has random embellishments. I say it's random but I know exactly what is inside. Just the way my brain works.
All my Mister Hueys + Sharpies + Twine +and the 'vintage' 7G stamps that I still love, live in this wooden drawer.
On top one of the expedit, my Jelly Belly dispensers, Big Shot and metal Coke bottle holder. I got that for free from one of the shop owner in Thailand (I made Sam ask if we could buy it, because I'm quite shy. Ha!). She refused to take our money. How kind was that? This is the kind of stuff that I will remember. :)
Washi tapes + baby wipes. My best friend made the washi holder for me. Think I need another one, eh? The ones I recently used are in the wooden box. The frosted plastic container holds paint brushes, extra scissors, distressing tools.
Wooden veneers! I love these! Love the wooden box, love the veneers! Can't get enough of them. I'm hunting for maybe another box exactly like this so I can have them all in one place. Currently, I have the cameras and hearts and arrows in two little glass bowls.
And here are what's always on my table. My enamel tray so I can have all the embellishments I'm currently working with in one place. Saved me a lot of time crawling under the table looking for that die cut/brad/punched out piece. You can also see magnets in the tray, I'm really big on making sure things stay where they are supposed to be, can you tell?
This box holds my finished layouts. I usually put them into the album once they're about full or maybe after every 15 layouts? Around there. This is a good compromise. I don't have to put them into albums straight away, but I also can't let them spill out of the box, because it will drive me crazy.
Here, I display some photo magnets my sister made for me, a sweet note from a friend, the letter S I got on clearance. I also hang some stuff I use frequently with some S hooks. Printers tray was not supposed to be there, lol. Neha still need to rearrange her room so I'm holding onto that for the time being. The metal white tiered unit holds some adhesives, some pens, some mist droppers, some tags. Basically random, but I know exactly where is what.
That works for me
I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my tiny scrap balcony. I'm always changing stuff up, rearranging. The space will be a work in progress forever, I think. :)
