Things have changed around here in the past 12 months.....
Sadly, I had to give up my scrapbook space to make a bedroom for my youngest daughter. She had been sharing with her sister and the time had come for them to have their own spaces.
Here you can still see my old scrapbook space.....
So I moved all my stuff to the back corner of our back room. It is a big open space with the dining room, the kitchen and couch and some shelves. With some creative furniture positioning, I created an alcove - a great corner where I can escape to and scrap!.
And you know what else? I have had fun moving and reorganising things. And I even I reckon I have a bit more room and definitely have found new organisation solutions!
Remember my number one tip: Sort things by colour! You'll see plenty examples of this as you read on.
And lastly, I have been scrapbooking for over 18 years, so my stash and my storage has grown and accumulated over a long period of time. Some of the shelves, containers and drawers that I have to store things, may no longer be available. If I know where you might find it, then I have said in the post.
Here it is! ENJOY!
Behind these shelves, I have set up my space.
We created a room division with these shelves.
And sectioned off the area with some drawers.
Here is my desk. It is up against the shelves. It goes goes over the second sliding door we have to the outdoor patio. We never used this door anyway!
You can see the sliding door here. I have stuck some arty pieces on the door with command strips.
Behind me is this white cupboard and some more shelves.
As you can see, with the window behind and the door to my left, I have a huge amount of natural light in this space.
I have a white wire folder holder (Kmart) on open of the cupboard. I just stash finished pages here until I get a chance to put them away into an album or box.
This 8 cube shelf behind me has some miscellaneous stuff, like my tools (geli plate, stamping platform, etc) and tissue papers, and cricut joy rolls and equipment. There is also room in this shelf just in case I get more stuff. Could happen!
The main thing contained in my white cupboard behind me is my papers. I have these 12x12 paper drawers. All my papers are colour sorted.
On top of the cupboard, I have my die cut machine, and some magazines.
I have this shelf behind me as well- it is the messiest.. It has boxes of old photos and memorabilia, and my chipboard. On top, in the baskets, I store my punches.
The tall white cupboard in the corner is the kids stationary cupboard.
