Do you also would love to know how the scrappy place of others looks like? Or how they sort and organize their scrapping material? Especially when I am can’t find anything or when my storage capacity is full, I often ask this question. And of course i am surious to see how other scrappy places look like 🙂 Maybe there is something I could implement in mine.
Maybe you grap a cup of tea or coffee, this post is a bit longer.
Rubeena recently posted about her favorite organization method in her Crafty Adventure Series and asked about our favorite organization method or product. Her question finally inspired me to this post. Welcome to my scrappy corner:
Long time I did not have a specific crafty place…I scrapped on the dining table or the table in the living room…and stored my stuff here and there. Luckily, we rearranged our appartment a bit, having now a creative place for me and also a crafting place for J. Compared to other places I have seen live and online, mine is relatively small….I call it scrap corner and love it since I have it. I do not mind the size as it makes me also able to know what I have and where I have it….most of the time 🙂 I had made the experience, that having too much stuff blocks me from being creative, thus, small is perfect for me. Let’s have a closer look at it:
As you can see on the first photo, I can be creative sitting and standing without changing or rearranging too much. This option got important for me during the last year…and I am very happy with this fast and simple solution. Directly next to my working space I have many small wooden drawers, where I store e.g. wood veneers, gelatos, sequins, various pens, refill bottles, smaller tools, book binding material, small individual stamps, embossing powders, small die cuts, bakers twine, embossing folders etc. The heat tool, the Fuse, and double-sided tape is hanging on a hook in front. Things I use permanently are stored on the white etagere. Like that, I have everything at my fingertips.
Let’s have a look at some more details:
Mists, washi, different glues, some sequins, and some individual stamps are standing on small shelve-like boarders next to or on top of the small drawers. You can also find my ink pad storage there.
My stamps are stored in pocket pages in a 6×8” album. Some of them are bought and some a customized having used my fuse, in order to make the stamps better fit.
My dies are stored at two places: those I frequently use are attached to a magnet boarder right above my working place; all the others are stored on self-made magnetic sheets in a card box.
My paper is stored in a rolling box; patterened paper and 12×12 cardstock are standing vertically separated in the upper part. Underneath are drawers with paper left overs in different sizes. On top of the rolling box is my colored A4 cardstock, sorted by colors in a plastic box. Now, you’re thinking I am the complete organization nerd…far wrong…chaos is just blocking my creativity.
Coming back to Rubeena’s questions, what my favorit oranization method or product is…the is no single one I like more than the others….I would say, having a specific scrapping place with all the drawers and boxes and shelves to store everything in an organized way to have everything found and taken out fast is what I like most about it.
How do you store and organize you scrap supplies? Do you have a favorite?
