The Evolution of My Scrap Space

This is my Ikea Paper Storage...."I love Pretty Paper", I always have ....Right now 23 of the 25 cubes are filled with Paper stacks, specialty paper, transparencies, vellum, cardstock etc.

This is an IKEA 4x4. It houses lots of my embellishments, ribbons, and tools needed to create....


This is an IKEA 2x4 on it's side......Not only does it make a great workspace it houses lots of my SB items on both sides....

This has really been a challenge for me.......My Scrap space has evolved from containers, then a 12x 14 scrap room and now my basement.....It keeps growing.....How I manage to organize is beyond me....but it continues to change as time passes.....This is where I am with it now.....
These are two work stations that I have in place right now....but I saw some Ikea storage tables that DCDoll showed yesterday that I think will fit perfectly in this space.....(I am hoping they have them in Black.......)....If I could get two of these I can put a lot more stuff in the storage cubes....I do prefer to see my stuff though....because then I remember to use it.....I am also working on some vinyl word saying for the wall beside my carts......I just did not want to do too much to the walls before I painted....I still have not decided on color or anything and have pretty much put the painting on the back burner because I soooooooo hate to paint....(LOL)

I love your 'scrap space'. Oh to be so neat and organized! Thanks for sharing your stationary/card holder. I have been looking for something like this to to give as gifts. I just had to lift this one. Your acrylic ablum is just beautiful. I have all the makings for one, just need to get busy getting it together. Thanks again for all the inspiration.

I am SO jealous of your paper collection! I showed my DH your pictures, and he now realizes that I don't have as much stuff as he thought! Haha! You have an awesome space!

I love your scrap space. I was thinking I wanted to do something like that (the ikea shelves) but for other things. I never thought of putting the paper there! Thanks! Great idea!

What about painting your walls--"Cricut green"?

Gin said...

Girl....I love that room. You have your room set up so nicely. Having a space like that would be my dream come true. I know you must find it hard to leave your space at times. Nice Job. Enjoy.

Love your scrap area!!! It's so organized and I love the cubes for storing.Great job11

CakeJunkie said...

Wow...you have a lot of work cut out for you with all that paper!

I love those IKEA storage units. If I ever get a craft room, that is exactly what I hope to use. For now, I am stuck in a closet.

Craftymaw said...

I like the storage units. I would like to visit an IKEA store sometime if I am ever near one.

Treva said...

Wow your space is just incredible,
I don't know what I'd do if I had that much space or stuff for scrapbooking.

ToBusyScrapping said...

Wow!!! I dragged my husband in here to show him your scrap area! I am soooo jealous! lol I just keep telling myself maybe one day I will have this much stuff to play with!!! Leanne

Gin said...

I keep coming back to your room to get some ideas on how to set up a few of my things. I have no way near what you have, but you are a great organizer and that helps me alot. Your organization not only shows in how you place things in your scrapbook room, but also in your work. Keep on keeping on.

WOW...I am speechless................

KnutselMar said...

Woooow, what a great idea to use the ikea cabinets for your paper and other scrap-stuff. Why didn't I think that way??

I really love the way your scraproom turned out, I hope I can have my own scraproom soon and I 'll have to steal some idea's of yours, I hope you don't mind.

Anonymous said...

I sure like the MM embellishment carousel. I dont have the space for one on my table.

Craftymaw said...

It looks like you have one of those lamps that Robyn had talked about.

Craftymaw said...

Very nicely organized, looks like the right spot for everything.
