Hello! Caroli here and today I want to share my crafts space with you.
I don’t have such a full room for myself anymore. I used to have a room but in March this year my baby boy was born and took over the space, so I had to move all my stuff to a corner in a little family room we have upstairs.
Although it’s tiny, i’ts a pretty space and I’ve made it work for my scrapbooking needs. I took advantage of this moving and decluttered A LOT! Also, I decided to decorate it with bright colors and pretty things I have made or collected during years, this way my creative process is easier 🙂 I bought new white furniture and enjoyed the process of adjusting my creative space.
I have my desk, it’s not too big but it keeps my Silhouette Cameo 3 (which is huge) and my cutting mat. You can see there’s a bunch of last layout I’ve made waiting to be stored on the albums, I should start doing that soon!
I keep tiny containers over the desk to keep small things I’m using in a given moment, for example an ephemera pack, cutfiles, some embellies, etc. I also keep handy this display thing a friend got me at a flea market, here I store mostof my alphas and some embellishment I use more often.
Next to my desktop I have this shelving unit where most of my stuff is contained. I modified the modules a bit so I can use them more convenientely.
For example, I divided one space into several levels so I can store papers per manufacturer/DT I work for. I keep the kits or collections all together in plastic bags, so it’s easier to have all the stuff in just one place when I need to work with it. The boxes store my tools, punch tables, embroidery and sewing floss, Crop-a-Dile, Cuttlebug and Bind-It-All stuff.
Here I also keep some baskets with minialbums and cards I have made during these years, I have a lot of them and I enjoy taking the baskets out once a while and looking throught the minis, so many memories there!
Finally, next to the shelving unit I have this cart, that stores stamps, inks, some mix media stuff (which I barely use, LOL!), glue refils for my ATG gun and foam dots, paper punches, washi tape, liquid ink and my dies. When I’m working on my desk I put this cart next to me so I can keep on taking stuff out. Once I’m done I put the cart back on its corner.
Here I store my treasures, my albums with all the layouts I’ve made during these years! The black ones are Family themed, pink ones are my daughter’s, black and white are my Book of Me, and kraft on is my son’s album (who is just 10 months old).
I love my inspiration wall. I have framed some cards I love from different manufacturers, and that little hanger by Jillibean Soup is perfect for hanging layouts. I hang my current fave layouts there and also on the little stand over the shelving unit.
Ad this is my space. I hope you liked it and take some ideas for organizing yours. Thank you for stopping by today! Have a lovely day 🙂
