My Scrap Room

Welcome to my space!

Everyone needs a space that they can call their own.  A while back I moved my entire scrapbook room to a different room in our home.  My "old" scrapbook room now holds a pool table and entertainment center for our daughters and their friends to hang out in and what was our "formal" dining room is now my new scrapbook room.  It is smaller than my "old" room but has some great built-in storage that is wonderful.  To start this is the view from my kitchen.

This table was formerly our dining table and has four chairs to match.  I found a cute round pedestal table and sanded and stained it to match the chairs and it is now our dining table and takes up less space in our great room which worked out perfect!

This is my desk from the side view.  At the end of the table is a set of shelves that my late grandfather built for my girls bedroom when they were little.  Things like this are priceless!
These shelves hold my basket of most used punches, two small baskets of Project Life embellishments, 9 school boxes of misc. goodies, my Thicker basket and two plastic totes of ribbon and wood mounted stamps on the bottom shelf.

My Thicker collection is about to outgrow this basket!

My Jetmax cubes are topped off by stained wood top and edged with yard sticks which makes them a little less sterile I think.  I store everything that I use most often in these.  The three small cubbies to the left have shelves that slide out and I use them for my most used inks.

The next slots are for Silhouette mats, paper trimmer, score board, new 12x12 paper pads, and then the full 12x12 cube has plastic envelopes with collections and then scraps sorted by color.

I store my veneers in vintage jello molds in this wooden tray.  Also some small tags and resin flowers.  Beside that tray sits a small wooden organizer full of tags.

On top of the cubes I have my Project Life card orgaziner that my husband helped me build from yardsticks.

Behind my work table is a table that I got from Michaels.  It is counter height and holds my typewriter, sewing machine and my vintage suitcase that holds all of my stamp sets.

The next section of my space has built-in shelves and a small counter in between.  Here I store all of my art supplies in an old Dr. Pepper crate and two vintage tackle boxes.  I also have all of my loose 12x12 papers in an old locker basket.  The two chicken wire baskets hold all of my trims.


Inside the top drawer are my most often used supplies like adhesives, glue dots, mists, paint dabbers, tiny attacher and sanding block, sponges, foam dots, date stamp, stapler and staples, etc.

In the next drawer I store clear divided containers of yummy embellishments. There are eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, charms, pins, clips, etc.
In the bottom three drawers I store:
Drawer 1:  Wipes, colluzzles, ziploc baggies, sandpapers, tapes and cutting pads
Drawer2:   Recently purchased supplies
Drawer 3:  Patterned paper scraps
The top drawer is divided and holds all my stickles, alcohol inks, crackle paint, perfect pearls, pearlex, glitter, flock, some twine, chalkboard paint and tiny white tags.

The next drawer holds all of my embossing powders.

And the last drawer of that cube holds all of my inks and my blending tool.

The bottom cube has four drawers. The top two drawers hold 3-D embellishments and tags and the bottom two are filled with chipboard embellishments (I went through a "I LOVE CHIPBOARD" phase!)

And here we are at the end.  I hope you enjoyed a look at my space.  Thanks for stopping by!
