These acrylic organizers are great for storing sequins, veneer, clips, clothespins, and other small embellishments.
I use this basket to hold my thickers and other large-scale alphas.
And this basket holds my washi tape collection which seems to grow by leaps and bounds as the days go on. Who doesn't love washi tape?
I use these wood containers to hold miscellaneous envelopes, tags, and baggies. They containers came with some silverware I purchased a few years back. They work out well to hold small things in plain site. Plus, they were essentially free. Can't beat that.
This tower holds stamps in the basket up top and the plastic drawers contain more die cuts, paper scraps, and chipboard embellishments.
I got the acrylic organizer to the left in the housewares aisle at Publix. It works great to separate enamel dots, journal cards, and other tags and ephemera. The wooden box holds more labels, smaller alphas, and smaller sticker sheets.
When I am working with a kit or a specific line of products, I separate the embellishments into smaller containers so that I can access them easily.
And what would a scrapbook room be without an Ikea Raskog cart? I stalked Ikea for weeks before I finally found one available for purchase online.
I use the top shelf to hold envelopes, tags, labels, miscellaneous embellishments, twine, ribbon, flair, and buttons.
The middle shelf holds stamp pads, Mr. Hueys, and miscellaneous tools including punches, adhesives, and staplers. Not pictured is the bottom shelf which I use to hold 6x6 paper pads.
Thanks for taking a peek at my craft space. I hope that you found some great ideas to incorporate into your space!
This month's guest designer, Lexi Bridges, is letting us take a peek into her scrap space :
Ribbon makes me happy....
Hello ladies! Welcome to my space! First of all, apologies for the bad photos, I don’t have good lighting in this room. So this is where it all happened and here’s my desk where I work on my pages. I have my favorite products that I use regularly on this desk, always within reach.
I use these stackable acrylic drawer box from Muji to store mounted rubber stamps, wood veneers, buttons, and other embellishments. I love that it’s transparent so I know what is inside each drawer and the size is perfect for embellishments. I like that they’re stackable too.
Everything else are in this shelf. I also like to use shoe boxes to organize them and label the box. They’re sturdy and it’s such a waste to throw them out. I’m also this close to using SC boxes to store some supplies :)
Hi everyone! Last year, we built a little house in the woods of Maryland. Our goal was to build a home where we used every room, every day. Because of that, my office also doubles as our guest room. It's tucked in the back on the first floor of the house, which is perfect because when I work from home, I can hear the kids with a sitter, but they usually forget I am there! I also love the big window that looks out on to the backyard.
Then, to the right of the cart is my sweet, sweet storage closet. In case you can't tell, I like to have clutter stored away. Far, far away. Every bedroom in our house has a big walk-in closet. I had extra shelves installed in this closet, and that's where I store a whole lot of stuff, from scrapbooking supplies (stamps in CD cases, mini albums, etc.) to gift wrap supplies. I also have a cart in here that holds a lot of my sticker sheets, stamps, punches, and my printer. Then I have these big, huge baskets that hold all my scrapbooks.
We moved recently so I haven't really felt "settled" into my crafty space yet. It's in an open room so I have to contain all my storage into a closet or drawers. I try to keep it simple so it doesn't compete with the rest of the house (my mess already does that!). I cleaned up after a big crafting session and snapped these photos so no real staging was done - this is it, right now, picked up. I love the drawers from IKEA they hold SO much. I stand when I scrap and go between that and the computer. I always have little boy craft supplies mixed in here and there so they can feel free to create when the "need" arises without getting in to my stash. I'd love more desk space but this is what is working for me now with what I've got!
Thanks for letting us visit your room, Allison!
Hello there! Dawn McVey here! I'm happy to get to share my studio with you today! I cleaned up just for you!! Haha....I always say having company is the best motivation to clean things up and so, dear friends, I've tidied things up a bit and I'm happy to welcome you to my studio...
This is my desk. It's actually an antique library table, but I love it for how deep it is. It allows me to have a shelving unit (salvaged from an old computer desk) on the back side of the desk so all of my card stock is close at hand, while still allowing me tons of desk space on which to work.
I have a vintage baking tin holding washi tape at the moment, though as you can see, it's about time to come up with a new plan for my every growing washi collection. :)
I use vintage style penny candy jars to store rolls of felt on the top shelf. The jars are from Wal-mart and were somewhere in the $5 range. You'll see as we work our way around my room, that I really like to have all of those gorgeous colorful supplies out where I can see them! It makes for a much prettier room to work in and I find being able to look at my supplies to be very inspiring.
We were at Paper Source one day and I fell in love with some shelving units they had on the wall, holding stacks of ribbon just like this one. Sooo, I asked my sweet hubby if he could make me a custom unit to store my Papertrey ribbon collection, and he did! We designed it to fit on the wall, in the space between the two windows in the studio. This also just happens to be immediately to the left of where I sit at my desk, so everything on these shelves, is also easily accessible from my chair.
In the little file cabinet that sits right behind my chair, my laptop sits on top and in the top drawer, I store all of my Papertrey dies. They're kept in CD sleeves and labeled by collection or individual die. These are also easy to flip thru right from my desk chair.
On the wall opposite my desk wall, I have two bookshelves (purchased years ago at Target) that house cards, Studio Calico wholesale goodies, Studio Calico kits and even my yarn stash.
I use a vintage drawer to hold my Mister Huey's spray mists. Goodness, I love those little guys. They look so cute all lined up in rows!
On the wall as you walk into the studio, I have a couple more file cabinets. On top is my Vagabond (die-cutting machine) and printer. On the wall above, are shelves filled with my Papertrey Ink stamps (the stacks of CD cases) and other miscellaneous items. As I make cards for each month's release at Papertrey and at Studio Calico, I line the cards up on the shelves. That way, I can enjoy them for a couple weeks before it's time to take them down and start the process all over again. ;)
The framed magazine covers on the top shelf are ones that I've been blessed to have a card on the cover.
To the left of that wall, brings us back to my desk wall. This is a second desk in the room (it sits just to the right of my library table desk) and basically serves as my sewing station. The cubby unit above the desk is from Pottery Barn and houses my mini canning jars filled with Papertrey buttons. The jars are also from Wal-mart and come 4 in a box (found in the canning supplies section) for about $4.
I hope you've enjoyed this little studio tour! Pop in again any time. :)
