Hi everyone. Heather Leopard is here and for this week’s organization theme, I thought I’d show you what my scrap space looks like. So come on in for a craft room tour…
When my husband and I designed this room, I knew I wanted to set up my scrap space as close to the natural light as possible. I also wanted to have room to set up a few tables in the center of the room when I have friends over so we could work together so we decided to create one VERY long desk that spans 2 and a half walls within the perimeter of the room.
My scrapbooking work space
I set it up so that I would have three distinct areas within the room – 1. a craft workspace as shown above (don’t mind the lamp shade that’s too small for the lamp), 2. a sewing section (not shown) and 3. my PC / electronics work space. I will soon be adding a video set-up so I can start making craft videos so look for an update on my blog and Instagram soon.
Each side of my craft space has a set of drawers. These hold my adhesives, glitters, inks, stamps, punches, sewing supplies, mists, paints, card bases, the list goes on and on. Everything has a place but if I have to be honest not everything always goes back in it’s place. I’m making it a goal this year to pack everything back up when I finish a project.
Pebbles collection storage
To the right of my craft drawers under my sewing station is where I keep all my current Pebbles collections. I usually keep my paper trimmer on the top but it’s not currently pictured.
This organizer holds the standard plastic bins and easily holds tons of 12″x12″ paper, Thickers, sticker sheets, die cuts and all the embellishments. I use one per collection so I can easily find what I need. I can even fit a large punch! Look how good it all fits in there.
Next is my computer area as well as my trusty amoire I’ve had for many years ago. It’s one of my favorite things. The bottom has room to fit 3 super large plastic bins across and about 6 high. I store older collections I’m not ready to part with, alterable things, momentos, etc.
The top part holds all my main craft tools – my large and small printers, printer accessories, Cameo, Cinch, Big Shot and more. My hubby built shelves that slide so I can pull things in and out as needed. I’m in the process of adding another shelf to better accommodate a few more items, like the Minc you see sitting on it’s side.
A space for the kids
Last but not least is the space where my girls create. They each have a draw on the left for their supplies and when they are ready to create, they just fold the door down and voila!, a table top just for them! Since it’s black, I don’t have to stress about ink that may not make it on the paper. Also, the gold and black locker holds my fabrics and vinyl.
So that’s a peek into my scrap space. I hope you’ve enjoyed my scrapbooking room | craft room tour.
Thanks for stopping by today.
