Scraproom 2014

I have a friend that lives out of state and she wants to see photos of my scraproom. I have done a little re-arranging so I am calling this post Scraproom 2014


I also have these photos posted on Facebook but since I do not know who follows the blog and who follows FB so  I will post the photos here too.

First up is the Crop Area.  If you come to crop night this is where we play. I have all of the CTMH “how to” books and a Cricut for everyone to play with.


This is my scraproom as you walk in from the hallway.  I have my albums, and cutting station directly in front of the door.  My Big Shot stays out and ready to go at a moments notice.  

(The pug is having a hard time finding a place to lay down)


This is my stamp pad storage along with a neat little place to keep my shimmer trim.  Below these rack are my ribbon storage but they are a mess right now so no photos of that. 


Directly across from the ink pad storage in the closet is the basket that I keep my embossing folders in.  I keep them in a basket so I can just “grab and go” and I have what I need in one spot when I am in the mood for dry embossing.


In this photo I am standing in the closet looking out into the room.  You can see part of my desk, my tall stamp set tower, my cardstock, and the rolling cart that I keep all of Kaela’s high school memorabilia that I am currently scrapbooking.


This is just a close up of the cardstock storage.  (sorry about Radar photo bombing – he is still looking for a napping spot.)


Under my Big Shot is the little drawers that I keep even more CTMH stamps sets in,  Lowes stopped carrying the tall unit so I had to find alternates when I ran out of space.  You will also notice a fridge.  Smile  a girl needs her beverages while she works.


This is the unit that I keep the “Family” memorabilia for each year that I need to scrap.  I keep photos, embellies, and other items for each year in one bin.  I am already on the second row for storage so I need to get back to work on the family stuff.  I am just a little behind.  Smile 




On the other side of my black storage bins are where I keep my reference materials, and pattern papers from past catalogs.   I keep the current papers closer to my desk and within arms reach.


I keep re-inkers and DMC thread that matches all of the CTMH colors on the corner of my desk.  If I can see it I will use it.  My Stamp blocks are also kept right here for easy pickings.


I keep all of my embellishments in these drawers and sorted out by color.  It is so much easier to find what I need now.


This is where I play – all day! 


My sponge dauber storage.  I started using my inks more once I put these one the wall.  Once again – if I see it I will use it.


We are rounding out the room now.  This is looking at my desk from just inside the door – standing beside the cardstock.  As you can see I have a long “L” shaped desk.


This is my scrap cardstock storage.  I have one hanging file for each CTMH color cardstock.  I put scraps in the folder they belong in – then before reaching for a new sheet I check in here first.  This one cart saves me so much money.  As you can see it lives under my desk right beside me. 

So easy to access.


Well I am done taking the photos and as you can see Radar found a place to lay down.  This is his usual spot.  He loves being in here while I work. In fact that is what I tell him each morning… “let’s go work” and he comes in here and stays with me all day. 


I love my room or should I say two rooms. 

The next Crop Night is April 19th… come play!
