Share your space – Donna

Hello everyone! It’s Donna here again and I am here to share my little creative space with you all.

It’s basically 1/4 of our bedroom. Good thing my husband is a very supportive and encouraging one, so he doesn’t mind when our bedroom turn into a “creative mess” when I’m in “my zone”. 😀


This is basically everything I own. I love looking at this while thinking of future projects or while I am stuck in a rut. I like that my own little piece of heaven gives me motivation when I needed it most lol. 😀


The shelf, table and wood cabinet/drawer were all salvaged items. Even the boxes where I store flowers, stencils, metal die cuts, trims and ribbons were all recycled. I just couldn’t throw them away especially the big ones. Though one day I would like to replace them with sturdier plastic ones with covers. Saudi Arabia is prone to sand storms and the open storage boxes tend to collect dust, lots of dust.DonnaEspiritu-CreativeSpaceShare-03

One of my newest possession is my teal Raskog!!! Oh my gosh. I just love it. But, as much as I want to put cute stuff like pens, pencils, etc. I couldn’t. My daughter likes to rummage through all the things in there. That is why I kind of blocked it, to prevent her from getting everything lol!  There is another similar storage at the back of the Raskog where I have my latest papers like the ones I got from Clique Kits. Again, blocked from the hands of my little girl haha!


I also bought these white plastic canister thingy from IKEA along with the Raskog. All the washi tapes I own are stored in two of those, third one with pens and the last one with photos and other small items. I love me some pens/pencils for sure. And you can also see all the punchers I own. Plus one that is in a box somewhere in the wood cabinet lol.


I have a couple of small plastic drawers where I store my inks and other knick-knacks like string pearls, buttons, etc. The clear plastic box is where I store some of my finished layouts, mini-albums and other stuff. Notice the box of dry sheets? I use those sheets for die cutting. It works perfectly for kind-of-difficult-to-cut metal dies.DonnaEspiritu-CreativeSpaceShare-06

Inside the wood cabinet/drawer. Some of my Graphic 45 papers and staples. I had to take this picture really quick because the little diva saw me open them and she thought she can pull them all out, as toys. lol!DonnaEspiritu-CreativeSpaceShare-07

And there is my beloved Silhouette Cameo. I used an old, thin and very smooth Winnie the Pooh blouse as cover. Improvisation. Ha! 😀 I just pull the machine out when I need it.DonnaEspiritu-CreativeSpaceShare-08

There you have it. 🙂

I enjoyed sharing my little creative space with you. Thank you for joining me today.

Have a great day!

Happy crafting,

Hello everyone 🙂 Elisabetta here today to share with you my little scrappy space! as you can see, I don’t have a scraproom, I just have a little corner in my bedroom where I keep all my supplies and my photo albums. There is a desk, an Ikea Raskog and a shelf. that’s it 🙂


My bedroom is usually very messy, but I tried to tidy it up and take some decent photos for you! I hope you’ll enjoy them 🙂

..pens, brushes and scissor..


..a photo of me and my friends..

I love my Raskog! I keep there smaller embellishments like wood veneers or enamel dots, washi tape, roller date etc! 🙂


Raskog is perfect for my Project Life cards box..


..and for my “mixed media” supplies 🙂


On the shelf I keep papers, trimmer, big punches, diecuts, stamps, stickers etc!


I still keep the tag CK sent me when I guest designed in March last year 😉

Share Your Space – Justyna Skowron

Hello! It’s been a while since I am here with Clique Kit Girls and Designers and I think it is the time to finally show you the craftspace from where my inspirations come! 🙂

This is it! Not much, but I really like this place!


I have some troubles with fitting this all but for the purpose of photos – I managed to do that 😀 normally there’s a bigger mess there.


Next to embellishements, stickers etc. I keep small stamps and punches.


On the left side there are the biggest alphas. And a minion 😀 I’m crazy about them! You can spot more of them on the first photo 🙂


On the right side there are paints, flowers, sewing machine which doesn’t work but looks nice, ribbons, washi tapes etc..


I also have small box with bagdes and small wood veneers.


And this is my favorite one – handmade wooden box  with Project Life cards.


There’s also a place for small cut outs or scraps of papers:



And under the desk there are some pizza boxes, my PL album and boxes made from the pizza ones to keep bigger parts of papers vertically.


How do you like it? Waiting for your feedback! ♥



Share Your Space-Aliza Deutsch

Hello, and welcome to my little world, my petite scrap space. It feels a little funny sharing my space. Even though I share many stories and photos from my life, I feel like now I am inviting you inside my home. And, I can’t help but notice all its little imperfections in front of the company.

So, here are a few disclaimers. I live in a two bedroom apartment that is large by New York City standards, and small by, well, everywhere else in America. So, no brightly lit craft room for me. I have a nook carved out of our generously sized entrance way, with a desk, drawers, some shelving, and a couple of lamps so I can see.

Okay, here goes.

Now, here is what I love about my modest little space.

  1. It’s mine.  In my early crafting years, I had two little kids, and a stack of containers filled with crafting supplies, that steadily kept growing. I would carry everything out to the kitchen table, and then pack everything up when I was done. One day, probably around 2007 or so, I said, “It sure would be nice to be able to leave out an unfinished project.” And my husband said, “I bet if we move things around, we could fit a desk somewhere.” Finding ways to arrange and rearrange things to create more space is actually something I am rather good at. And, so, this little space was born. At the time, I loved it because it meant Dave respected my devotion to this hobby. And I loved it because as a young mother of two, it was the only space that was my own.
  2.  It’s efficient. With a small space, I have to be smart about how things are organized, and I need to thoughtful about what I have. There is no room for hoarding here. I am pretty sure that if I had a larger space, I would have a larger supply of things that I don’t use all that often.

So, here is a little detailed tour of what I do have, and how it is all arranged.

Papers from my current Clique Kits live on a bookcase that is opposite my desk. As you can see, that is also where we have a bicycle and a phone. (With wires!) Anyway, the most recent papers stay in the white box in which they were delivered. bookshelf close up

Once a new Clique Kit arrives (Oh, happy day!), the remaining papers of the previous kit go into the plastic Iris box below it, or in my other stash of patterned paper next to my desk. That is also where I keep cardstock, loads of page protectors, boxes of ribbon, lots of rulers, and my beloved paper trimmer. That paper bag hanging on my desk is for trash.

Let’s move onto my desk now. The most important part, is the left hand side. In a letter organizer and some little containers, I keep my most recent Clique Kit alphas and embellishments, photos, and lots of scrap paper for jotting down ideas, to do lists, and drafts of  journaling. I usually have a month or two of kits in this space, before things get moved to my stash. As with my patterned papers, after things are moved from here, I no longer worry about keeping kits together. While they are on my desk, those are the things I will work with the most.

I love working with one kit at a time.  The products are the latest and the greatest. They all coordinate with each other. But I also love looking through my entire collection, and discovering things both new and old that work well together.

And so, here is a look at some of my shelves and inside some of my drawers, where my stash resides.

On the shelves above my desk are 3 containers. One for my go to tools, one for alphas (and the occasional playbill) , and one for other packaged embellishments-usually stickers. Recent layouts are displayed above, until they make their way into an album. shelves above

Other embellishments like ephemera, enamel dots, flairs, brads, sequins, wood veneers, washi, and more live in in the drawers below or next to my desk.

There are more drawers, with more odds and ends-stamps, hole punchers, ink pads. But these are the items that I use the most. When my little containers get too full, or when things are just getting out of hand, I go through my supplies and do some purging.

One other note: I also use my computer, printer, and Silhouette on a regular basis. And those live on another desk in my bedroom.

Also, my desktop  is almost never as clear as it is in these photos.





Share Your Space: For the Love of Scrap

IMG_4254Hello! Cassandra from For the Love of Scrap here and super excited to share my craft space with everyone! First of all, I beg of you, no judgments… I may or may not be a scrapaholic and border-line paper hoarder… Okay, I definitely am!

I’m blessed in that I have my own craft space that is separate from our other living spaces… even though it’s not the room I had in mind when we bought our house a few years ago (that room has become the family room), it’s still a creative space… I’ve just had to learn to consolidate as it is a much smaller space than my last.

I have the space broken into several workspaces with storage in every little corner I could find (including in what is SUPPOSED to be our coat closet!). The biggest downside to this space is that it is open to the foyer so you see it as soon as you enter our front door… that means no scrappy messes when company is coming!

scrap room

 I found my craft desk by chance at Costco when we lived in Washington state. I was shopping with a friend and thankfully had her husband’s truck – we quickly loaded one for her and sent my husband to grab another for me! It is fantastic – the perfect height to stand at or I have a bar-height chevron chair from Target so I can shift between standing and sitting as needed.

I love the amount of work space I have on top with plenty of room for my tools caddy and my Kiwi Lane Designer Template storage tray, idea and sketch books, and more! The front features storage shelves – I keep my most used paper brands (Close to My Heart and My Mind’s Eye), accessories and additional tools in canvas bins found at Target and ThirtyOne. Both sides provide additional storage shelves – perfect for my 6×6 paper pads, pocket card storage, embossing folders and dies, accessories and more!

Just above my scrap desk I have two decorative picture ledges that hold a few projects and frames I like. I embellish with cards that I have made or received from crafty friends.

I have a separate desk for my iMac and Cricut Explore… It’s the perfect size for die cutting crafty projects and doubles as a space for my Macbook for blogging and bill paying! I have my ThirtyOne home organizers hung to help with storage of catalogs, files and basic office supplies.

I store all of my 12×12 paper by collection in plastic envelopes (I have various styles from Michaels, Hobby Lobby and I have a touch of OCD so it helps me to have them stored by collection and the envelopes keep them nice and organized when I have extra little pieces and bits floating around. The envelopes are then organized mostly by brand into the larger cubes that I have (again no judging – I have twelve large cubes for just 12×12 paper!!!). The cubes are scattered around my room – but I enjoy the balance they bring.

I have two wooden cube organizers that I use to store paper and albums and my wide-format sits atop one of them… I LOVE that I can print journaling or whatever my heart desires on my 12×12 paper. I have another plastic customizable unit that stores paper and accessories… including the majority of my washi obsession! There is no such thing as too much washi… right??

I have my stamps stored on the same plastic modular unit – some of them in Close to My Heart Large organizers with the overflow in Target canvas bins with lids. I may have a stamp addiction too… so thankful to have a supportive spouse!!

I also have two carts in my room, my turquoise cart from Ikea houses all of my punches and Creative Memories border and shape maker cartridges. The other I found at BJ’s wholesale and it fits perfectly under my desk for storage when not in use. I usually pull it out and set it up next to my desk when I scrap for easy access and my ThirtyOne Fold n’ Files fit perfectly on top – I use one of those to hold kits that I want to use and another to house a selection of plain cardstock within arms reach. Inside I store accessories, more tools and inks.

I even managed to squeeze in a space for my daughter, whom I fondly refer to as Miss Munchkin. She has plastic drawer storage under my Cricut desk as well as come canvas bin storage under her desk. She’s only seven but already loves to craft and we enjoy creating together.

I use more ThirtyOne bins for my paper recycle bin and for a desk top trash can. I love that these are collapsible and that I’m able to take these to crops or when I’m scrapping outside of my space.


Lastly, and as mentioned before, all of my extras have found a home in what should be our coat closet… there is absolutely no room for coats though! I have a few cubes with more paper and some plastic drawer storage but my favorite part is the Artbin Super Satchel cubes and containers that I have in here – I don’t scrap chronologically, I just go with whatever I am feeling that particular day… this makes it difficult as I do organize my scrapbooks chronologically. The Artbin containers allow me to store completed pages until I have a project finished or near enough completion to be transferred into the actual album.

extras closetA HUGE thank you to Clique Kits for having me and I hope you’ve enjoyed your tour of my scrap space!!! So much craftiness in so little space but Miss Munchkin and I love it!
