After three months of transporting, rearranging and organizing, I think I'm finally ready to unveil my scraproom. It's still kind of a work-in-progress, but if I waited until it was completely finished...well, you'd probably never see it.
So without further ado, here's a peek into my scrap space.
The pinstriped walls are a holdover from my daughter's nursery (which I took over in December). It was such a pain to paint them this way that I can hardly bear the thought of repainting.
This is my die-cutting and embellishment area. I repurposed the changing table from the nursery -- turns out it's a perfect storage piece! The larger drawers are great for holding tools, die sets and layouts to be filed. One of these days, I'll get around to mounting the embellishment center on the wall, but I haven't gotten up the nerve to ask DH to help me. (Yes, I'm a wimp.)
And this is one of my two (for now) Clip It Up units. This one holds Thickers, other alphas and rubons on the bottom tier and acrylic stamps and smaller packaged embellies on the top. I like that it sits on the corner of my scrap table so all my alphas are within reach when I'm working on a layout.
This is my Expedit shelving from IKEA, and I'm amazed at how much it holds. In addition to my albums and idea books, I keep patterned paper (organized by manufacturer), chipboard shapes and alphas and sewing supplies. Large storage boxes hold page kits, page protectors, alterable items and scraps. My altered projects are displayed along the top.
One cubby holds several jars of ribbon (separated by color), plus markers and paintbrushes. Admittedly, it's not the most organized way to keep ribbon, but I love the look of the jars with the different colors and patterns inside.
And this is my other Clip It Up -- a mini! It holds smaller embellishments like mini alphas, twine, brads and bling. It sits on top of my Expedit so it's at eye level for easy "shopping."
The Clip It Up products have been incredibly helpful in putting this room together. I used to keep all my products in various shoeboxes with very little rhyme or reason. I could never find anything when I needed it, and there were tons of things I completely forgot I had because they got buried in the clutter. It's so refreshing to be able to see everything I have, and it inspires me to use more variety in my layouts because I can easily find things that go together.
