2011 Updated Scrapbook Room

Welcome to my Newly Updated Scrapbook Room. I hope you enjoy looking through my photos and that it may spark some creative ideas for you.

Entry from my Husband's side of the office - we share this office space (converted from 1/2 of our garage) My side is 5 x 9 ft room with a 2 x 3 ft "closet".

Looking at my room from entry to the left.

We had our contractor put this window in, I get great lighting when the sun is out (but in Seattle it's rare)

Looking into room straight on.

Looking at room from closet to the Right.

My year round Pink Xmas tree and skirt...

Looking into closet from Desk.

Photo CD's in a DVD Storage Rack that I got on Amazon.

My Clip it Up (way UP Tall - good thing I'm 5'11" tall) to be able to reach anything on it.
Green Glass holder I got at Thrift Store for $2.00 and I store my small alaphabet stamps, and the other green "glass" for $.75 and clear glass jars $1.00 ea. I also got from a thrift store holds some utensils (paper piercer, stylus, spatulas, Bones, xacto Knifes, etc.).
My 12 x 12 albums (I was told not to store my albums this direction so I may have to flip the cubes)
Return that I made into extra "Hidden" storage.
"Hidden" storage area (look lots of room to buy more stuff)

This photo won't download the correct directon for some reason, but these are my idea books, I rip out the pages from magazines that I like the layout and sort them by "theme", then the pink binder is my scrapbook storage idea book that I gather from photos, internet pages, and blogs.

Sewing area.

Got this candle holder for a $1 at a thrift store, bought some little glass bowls for .25 cents each and created some storage for little items, like brads, eyelets, etc.
Stamp storage made out of cassette holders.  I cut a piece of cardboard and taped it between holders.

Bazzill Paper storage sorted by color.

Corner Hutch.

Again this photo will not transfer correctly,
I made the ribbon pail by tying different colored ribbon along the handle.

Pottery Barn bathroom shelf that I got "New" on Craigslist a few years ago (LOVE IT!)

Took the upper shelf out and now I have a place to store my Cricut Cartridges.
Buttons, Buttons and more Buttons....Oh and some Ribbon.  You also see my small HP Photo Printer.

Left corner of desk.

Scissor storage (used a coffee mug holder)

My alphabet chipboard storage, got this at Lowe's in the hardware department, cut paper and put in the inside and then used stickers to label letters.

IKEA bar.
Got this great little metal holder at a thrift store for $2.00.

Slack hangers purchased at Fred Meyer that I use for photos of my 12 x 12 layouts.

Got this cute little wheel barrow with glass salt and pepper shakers at a thrift store for $1.00
and I filled with colored glitter to match room colors.

Got this cute little bathtub with some bath products and was going to throw it away and now it holds my adhesisve refills.

View from the closet.  We had a our contractor built that funny looking box protruding from the wall around our garage door opening with an access panel so we didn't lose 2ft of room.

View again from husbands desk.
View from closet to the right.

Desk.  I have a crafters mat on the top so I'm always ready to cut.

Underneath my desk - scrap paper storage sorted by color and my cropper bag (although I never go anywhere to scrap....can you guess why?)

Scrap paper storage sorted by color

Thanks for taking the time to view my craft space.  I hope you were inspired and found something that will help organize you more efficiently.  I'm always striving to make things better.  My favorite store to shop in is a "Thrift Store", you can always find great things to make into great organizational tools.  Most of my purchases are from Ben Franklin, Michael's, Paper Zone, Container Store and IKEA. Happy Scrapbooking.

And I'm linking up with

Transformation Thursday
