Our Scraproom..

I've been asked by a few people lately to so show what my workspace looks like & how I organise everything.. so I thought I'd share with you a few pics..

Pic 1..
This is our desk with a chair & 12x12 mat for both Sharni & I. on the desk we keep our SU ink caddy, SU markers & cake stand full of basic tools & adhesives. Under the desk we have 8 wire basket drawers which hold, in order- cello bags - envelopes- card blanks - spare ribbon & adhesives - punches - other tools - more other tools - & boxes waiting to be altered :) above the desk are our shelves of penny black stamps (& a few other odd ones too)..Pic 2..
Ikea Expedit unit.. This is basically where EVERYTHING lives & on top we keep all our cards which are completed & ready to be sold or given out.
Pics 3 & 4.. Cricut corner! small table for the Cricut machine & the printer lives underneath.. The shelves above hold cricut cartridges,spare printer inks, jars full of buttons & other small embellishments, stickles, dabbers, glitters etc. On the rail below are acrylic stamps. The pink mini-r.u.b.s on the other wall hold all chipboard letters in alphabetical order.. Pic 5..
Ribbon!.. All ribbon hangs on the back of the door on Ikea curtain rails cut to size..
Pic 6.. Stampin up! cardstock.. all kept in 12x12 display dynamic trays, all with printed labels & in catalogue/colour family order..

Well I hope you enjoy the little tour..and before you ask YES it always is this tidy - its very sad, I know! but I admit I'm a total organisation freak!!!! :)

I am hanging my head in shame, as you visited me you may have scrolled down and seen my craft space - that was at a tidy moment - it's worse right now!!!!!!! I can only apologise and say I will try to do better in future!! Sorry Clair & Sharni - I use the both of you together like I would Ant& Dec or yes, like Kim & Aggie!

I'm in the process of keeping everything in my room tidy and more than that finding time to actually do sometime with my supplies! Beautiful room and well organised! Your a woman after my own heart. I lovely organised work spaces. Can you come over and help me finish mine off? hahah

Hi your room is lovely & organised.

I love the way you have stored the packets of clear stamps, can you let me know where they come from?

Many Thanks

Clair Matthews said...

Hi ladies - thank you for all your lovely comments.

Alex: the 12x12 trays are called Display Dynamics (very hard to get hold of)xxx

Lisa: the clear stamps are hanging on simple utensil rails with little hanging curtain hooks - all from Ikea & very inexpensive xxx
