Happy Saturday morning! Today it’s my turn to share my craft space with you.

Heidi-Augustson

I am using our guest room as a craft room. Do you want to take a look? Welcome in!

Here is my desk where I’m crafting. Just in front of the window where I have a view out to the terrace.

IMG_1511The terrace is turning east/west so I get the sun into my desk in the afternoon. As you see we have no neighbors looking in, except a lot of birds.

Just in front of me at the desk I have all the tools I often use, my Big Shot, punches, ink, tape, glue, sponges, pens etc. And my radio :-)

IMG_1501

On the left side I have 3 shelves containing stamps, papers, flowers, ribbons, lace and other things I often use.

Behind me I have another shelve where I store my crafting books and magazines, sewing machine and a lot of boxes with crafting materials.

And on the wall on my right side I have 2 metal frames where I can hang the finished cards. I hope you all enjoyed looking into my craft room. Wish you all a sunny and creative Saturday!

Crafting has always been a passion of mine, and since I discovered the amazing world of papercraft years ago I have been completely addicted to it. I love the shabby chic- and vintage style and most of my projects are characterized by the use of vintage photos, lace, flowers and romantic details

Hello Maja friends! When I’ve been asked to share my scrap space, I’m a little reluctant as I don’t have the luxury of owning a scrap or craft room. What I own is just a little scrap space in our office which I’m sharing with my husband and my two kids. So are you ready to take a look at my little crafting haven? Let’s go!Irene-Tan

This is my scrap table which is situated on the far end of the office room.  I like to keep my table clean and empty while I’m not creating. This way, I will have the whole table for scrapping.DSC_7375To the left of the right of my table, I have a small tale which serves as a station for die-cutting, embossing and some storage. It is also the place where I store all my flowers and tools.DSC_7365This is a little trolley where I store most of my inks and adhesives. I love to organize my inks. This makes it easy for me to find the right color whenever I want.DSC_7372Besides a trolley, I also have two little kitchen spice rack which I hung on the wall to store all my glitter glue, ink refills and liquid pearls.DSC_7373The best part of my scrap space is that I have a window behind my table which allows tons of natural light in when I’m scrapping. I have an alter drawer where I’ve stored various embellishments.DSC_7369I’ve also have a two-tier storage shelves by the window to organize my ribbons, laces, buttons and more flowers. This is also my sewing station. Yes, this is what I use to do all my stitching on my projects. All this while, I’m hand-stitching on my projects as I do not own any craft sewing machine. I would hope to get one from a sponsorer or as a gift some day.DSC_7366Lastly, I would like to share a picture of the shelves where I display the fruit of my love for crafting. It may not be neat by I love to look at them for inspirations.DSC_7363When I scrap or craft, I always have some kind of music on. The reason is, music can create the emotion and mood I need based on my inspirations.Thank you so much for joining me on this little tour of my scrap space! See you again soon!Irene-sign

I'm also known as “Scrapperlicious”. My scrapping motto has always been “Scrap with your heart and don’t forget to have fun too!” I love stamping and inking and my style is kind of ephemera/distressed. Visit my blog here - http://scrapperlicious.blogspot.se/

Hello & Welcome to my Scraproom….

1c232d19-cada-4044-bb79-f618819f2f3c_zpscf34c0a1

I started scrapbooking in 2002,helping out my middle son,Erlendur with his grade 12, language arts “Memory Book” project. At this time I had never heard of scrapbooking, but this was how all the girls in his class, were doing their projects! So Erlendur asked his friends where to get supplies & got the info on scrapbooking. I worked with the photo’s (matte & paste,added stickers,ect.beginner self taught scrapbooking), Erlendur did the writing. I worked out of plastic bins,that I stored in the spare bedroom,& dragged into the kitchen. Little did we know,that Rachelle had found her passion!!! I got addicted to scrapbooking,& of course to the supplies.My front room,living room,dining room was never used,so I decided to change it into my scrap space.

I had a friend custom make, my work station. I stand to scrap,so I had him build me a island,with lots of drawers. It is in the center of the lowers area,with easy access,to all of my supplies,in drawers, or in the boxes, on the selves…..

Shows the other side of work station,with more drawers. Behind are paper racks,in the last couple years I have been 99% working with Maja Design papers,but I have not purged any of my old paper. I use the old paper as a backing on my LO’s, for extra support..

A photo taken from the opposite side of the room. This room is just off the front entrance of our home,& right next to the kitchen. There are 3 large windows facing south. The lighting over the work station is a pool table light….

I decided to decorate my room, with my late sisters Art. JoAnne was a year younger then me,born on the same day. She passed away about a year before, I got into scrapbooking….

Yes, I do have a sewing machine, I have had it for years but still have not figured out how to thread it,so instead I spend hour’s hand stitching…

Happy Saturday morning, Maja friends! It’s Andrea here with you today to share my scrap space! I am very fortunate in that a few years ago we added an addition to our house, one that included a master suite and bathroom…which consequently left us with a spare bedroom. Well, not for long as I comandeered the space for my crafty pleasures… {insert sinister laugh here}. Andrea-EwenSo here we go…I apologize in advance for having to use a flash as I picked to two gloomiest days of the year to take photos of a room that only has one window: MR2The above cabinet hold miscellaneous stickers, raffia, bows, extra adhesives, scissors and travel bags for when I go away to craft.MR3I keep most of my paper here, Maja get segregated from the rest since it’s the paper I use most often.MR4I‘m convinced that closet doors are best left closed, as evidenced by the following photo:
MR5In here I keep extra gift bags, wrapping paper, travel bags, lace, stamp cartridges, Christmas cards…basically anything I can’t fit (or don’t like to view on a regular basis) gets shoved in here.MR6The above shelf holds all of my extra inks, glues, Modge Podge, stamps and extra papers. I guess you could say I’m a hoarder, wink wink.
MR7These drawers contain punches (in the bottom drawer) and twine and seam binding in the top drawer.
MR8 This is my main sitting area. I do have an extra chair for whomever would want to chat while I’m working. I have a lovely view of my plants outside.MR9The extra chair is also used as my sewing station. I keep all my notions in the shelf above the machine along with pins, buttons, inks and markers.MR10This is the full view of all of my ‘accessories’. Inks, markers, punches, buttons, flowers paper…basically you name it, it’s tucked in there somewhere.MR11I‘m also very lucky that my husband is a carpenter by trade, so he was sweet enough to make these dividers for all the colors of my papers. I can’t even think of the mess that these papers would be in if they weren’t organized like this.MR12Here is my late night crafting light box. I don’t like these photos as much as natural daylight, but at 2 in the morning, this has to suffice….MR13Above the light box are accessories that I sometimes use to place behind my cards. Gives a little depth perception and charm. I also store my most recent creations on these shelves until they get delegated to a box below.MR14My wall of punches….MR15Buttons, favorite ink pads, liquid pearls and Stickles. Along with boxes of flowers arranged by color….MR16A closer view of my ‘go-to’ section.
MR17The above drawers are designated for pearls/crystals/accoutrements. I also have a decent stash of Zva Creative flourishes and this is also where I store my die cutting machine for easy access.
MR18The sewing center. I keep my scoring board and extra long cutting boards on the shelf just under the counter to my right.MR19Ribbons (unorganized and messy) but divided up by ‘warm’ colors on top and ‘cool’ colors on the bottom.

MR21Whoops…didn’t have time to organize those up above…that is a pretty good picture of how my craft room looks on a daily basis.MR20My view while crafting. Sometimes it’s quite distracting…but I have to say it makes me happy.

Thanks for joining me for this photo heavy post…hope you enjoyed a peek around my craft space! In zero to thirty it’ll be a mess again!

Enjoy your weekend! Andrea-sign
