Hi everyone! Gabrielle here with you today to give you all a little glimpse into my scrap space. I love to see where people scrap and see how others organize and keep their scrap supplies. So today I thought I would share with you a few pic’s so you can see how I like to keep myself organized when scrapping. Join me in having a cup of coffee and let’s poke around my scraproom and maybe even peek in a few drawers, I don’t mind 🙂
It’s hard to see the color of my room in this photo (I’m not great at taking inside shots) but my scraproom is a soft fresh green, I find green a nice soothing color….don’t ask about the red chair! LOL…It’s really comfortable, but ugly (I keep saying I will recover it but still have not found time to do it).
I have a tall set of drawers where I like to keep my collection of punches and inks. I like the flat/shallow drawers because you can see in them at a glance, not digging around to try and find things.
On the right side of my room I have a large Ikea cabinet that I fill with some of my other craft goodies. The pink bins are great for storing those odds and ends that can look a little messy, snippets of lace and fabric, trims etc. I also keep my mixed media products on these shelves as well.
My shelves are ever changing with the coming in of new products,….but here I thought I would share a picture I took this week of what my cubbies are holding. I try to keep my products together by brand. I have a lot of Dusty Attic paints, for example, that I keep in the large boxes in the top left corner (you see a little peek of them).
When I was making up my scraproom, I had my dear husband put up a slatwall for me with lots of pegs where I could hang a lot of the embellishments, stamps, tools etc. that I work with daily. My kids and their friends call it my ‘store’ LOL! They ask me if they can go into my store to play with some of my stash.
Here is a closer view of my slatwall, this of course is constantly changing as I use product and add more. But one thing that doesn’t change is that I am meticulous about keeping it organized. I don’t like to hunt for products when I’m in the middle of a project, so I keep it in good order so that I can quickly find the product I’m looking for.
Beside my slatwall I have these little floating shelves where I keep my loose flowers and blooms in little glass jars I got from Ikea.
One of the most often asked questions I get is ‘What do you do with your layouts that have a lot of 3D elements?’ I have some open frames on my wall where I like to display these and change out the design every couple months or so. If I can find more of those frames, I’d love to add a bunch more to my wall and really fill it up, because heaven knows I have a LOT of 3D/thick page designs.
I hope you enjoyed a little tour of my scrap space today. The truth is, that I scrap where-ever it makes me happy to scrap. Sometimes I scrap in my scraproom, sometimes in our bedroom with my supplies all layed out around me on our bed. And if I’m filming one of my videos, I like to work on my dining room table where I get the best light for filming. Wherever you scrap, the important thing is that you enjoy it and that you get that happy creative buzz when you are doing it. Happy Scrappin’!!
