My Scrap Space

I have a little room, about 8 feet by 9 feet, but it is nice and cozy. I have various storage for my scrapbooking supplies. I just pick them up when I can get a good deal and if it will work in the space in the room that I want to put it. This first picture is of my main work area. I have a desk and a little folding table in an 'L' position. It makes it easy to work on a project on one surface and to have the extra space to use my paper trimmer and other tools.

The second picture is a little wooden shelf that I store a lot of my most used stamps and other tools. I also keep my pictures and most of my small embellishments in the cropper hopper storage on top. I have some storage on a little built in shelf above the wooden shelves. I have my ribbon storage on top of that. I also keep my cuttlebug stuff up there, too.
In the third picture, I have my paper storage. I have found the black paper storage shelves at my local Michaels. It keeps my cardstock nice and straight. I keep my loose patterned paper on the top of the cropper hopper cart in the vertical paper holders. I have my stacks of patterned paper on the bottom of the cart.
Here is where my cricut Expression lives. I also have my little photo printer on this buffet table. Inside is where I keep some of my lesser used tools, extra supplies, like adhesive, and my photo printer stuff. On the shelves above the Expressions, I have my Prima's and extra storage boxes. On the shelves to the right, I have my cartridges, page kits, books, and my scrapbooks that are in progress. On the top, I have my little girls scrapbooking supplies. (To the right of this shelves, I have my empty cricut cartridge boxes.)
With this last photo, I have my door that I keep my punches and close at hand tools and embellishments in a hanging craft organizer. I also keep my scrap tote handy here because I go to crops at least once a month and leave some of the smaller supplies in it that I take to all of my crops and use all the time at home. Above that (sorry not a full photo of it) I have a couple of plastic magazine holders that I got from Walmart and altered. I have my stickers and rub-ons in two separate ones hanging on the wall to the left of my desk.
I hope that you enjoyed this tour of my room. If you have any questions, please let me know. I have a few projects in the works and I will post them when I get them done.


  1. If you want to free up some space in yoru scrap room... try storing your ribbon on ribbon rings. You could hang a coat rack on your wall and hang each ring by color. Just an idea! Take a look at them at!

  2. Love this space, very nice. I don't have a space like this, but I sure need it.

    Have a great day. Love your ideas.


  3. Good ideas and organization! In the second photo, is that the organizer from QVC? Your room looks very "scrapbooked in" ... I like that!

  4. Hi and thanks for the comments. Kopperhead, yes, the black and tan organizer is from QVC.

  5. Thank you Amy, I saw that organizer on QVC and wondered how it functioned in a real scrap environment. I like it!

  6. Cute cute room Amy! I love your new profile picture! Such a cute family!
