My Scrap Pad

It's always fun to see what a scrapper's scrapping area looks like.  I thought I'd share mine with you. Here's a glimpse :

CTMH paper and stamps are stored on the hope chest (the chest was a gift to my gramma from my grampa many many years ago.  This will be refinished for my daughter some day.) and a cropper hopper to the left of that holds cardstock.  The little shelf on the bottom of the cropper hopper holds dies for the quickutz revolution. All my punches are stored in the little bag on the floor. Albums are kept on the top shelving to keep away from little fingers :) 

 NOTE: I happen to find that little white paper orgainzer at a garage sale and it has plastic dividers every 1 inch!  How cool is that!  I have not been able to find another one anywhere or online.  If you've seen it before, let me know! I would love to get more!

Cropper Hopper

There are a couple of organizers on the top that hold tombow and other adhesive- these are stored up top again to keep away from little fingers and mouths (my sweet little girl puts EVERYTHING in her mouth!) My awesome hubby put the lighting up for me :)  What a guy!

Paper crafting....I think about it all the time...well, most of the time.

The orgainzer and bin to the left hold embellishments. The bins to the right are all paper- they are orgainzed according to boys/girls/holidays/scraps and premade pages and pages that are finished waiting to be put into an album.

My prior employer had a top unit for a desk and they were going to THROW it away!  I was like, Absolutely Not! That's a scrapping room piece of furniture!  So, I went home with it :) It now holds inks, more embellishments, idea books, items to scrap, etc.
That purple binder holds sketches that I've ripped out from older scrapbooking magazines.  Since I had what seemed like a gazillion magazines, I didn't think I needed the whole magazine so I just took out the sketches and placed them in page protectors.

Well, there you have it.  I love being in my room when I get any free chance that I can.  Hard to believe 4 years ago my scrapping supplies were stored in a closet!!  The addition has grown :)

Thanks for checking out my space!   I'd love to see your space if you have pictures posted on your blog!


  1. This is great!! You have really utilized your space well!! Isn't it nice to have a "place"? I think it's awesome!!

    1. Thanks Brenda! I will say it's rarely this clean!! Posting pics of my space pushed me to clean it up :) My hubby finished our basement. He was so excited when it was complete...he brought all my items downstairs for me and had a table set up so when I got home from work I had a nice surprise...that was 4 years ago. I feel very blessed to have a space and a guy that supports my hobby. Your room looks awesome too! It's so fun to see a scrappers space!

  2. What a great space! I love how much room you have and that sign is too cute!
