Before I give you the grand tour of my crafty space, I wanted you all to know this has been a long time coming. I have never really shown any of my crafty spaces, much less open drawers, cabinets, and closets. There was not plan on doing this anytime soon either as I have been waiting on curtains and making a final decision on paint color. However, since the Bitten By the Bug challenge this week was showing your craft space I though what the hay!
There are a few things I should point out. First, I know I have a ridiculous amount of things. However, remember that this is my full-time job. Secondly, I started out scrapbooking over a decade ago, sitting on the floor of my closet. Having a room was not on my radar until much, much later. Here I am though, and I have to say I really love this space. There is much more to do to make it a pretty room, but it is VERY functional. I will post more pics once my curtains arrive and are installed.
|These set of cabinets house my Cricut cartridges, cartridge giveaways, alterable items, shipping supplies, envelopes, and more ribbon :-)|
|The Ikea cubes (I do not have pictures of the contents because this post is long enough.) store more giveaways, customer thank you gifts, cardstock scraps, current CTMH paper packs, fabric, vinyl, and Anna Griffin stuff.|
|Against my better judgement, I am showing you my closet. This is where I keep my core'dinations cardstock, patterned paper, sewing machine, projects I have already made like cards, layouts, boxes, and gift bags, 12 x 24 paper, and felt.|
|This is where my craft room lap top lives, so it is easy to use the CCR. I also keep my washi tape here for easy access. This is where I tend to keep new things as well, because if I can see it I will be more likely to use it.|
|This is where I keep my punches. I do not use them all that much, but it is good to have them handy for when I do. Also, this is where my tape gun and stamp scrubber lives.|
|More punches, journaling pens, and white signo uniball pens are stored on the left.|
|Inks, inks, and more inks! The more options the better! The refills are kept above.|
|The white little box is my PictureMate Charm. Just perfect for scrapbooking! I bought it for the new Picture My Life program that Close To my Hearts sells. Then I have my trimmer, Cuttlebug folders (in the aqua plastic container) and new patterned paper in the floral bucket (got all of these from Target).|
|This is where I make all of my projects.|
|This little rolling cart is perfect for holding my Close To My Heart organizational containers. I bought it at Ikea.|
|This is a small CTMH organizational container. This is so perfect for my little edge inks.|
|In this CTMH Small Organizational container I store all of my current embellishments that coordinate with the CTMH patterned papers.|
|In this CTMH Medium container I store misc embellishments and CTMH fabric.|
|This is another medium container, and I store all of my adhesive backed embellishments like rhinestones and pearls.|
|This is where I currently keep my Cuttlebug folders. I will be moving them into a large CTMH storage container very soon!|
|Here is where I keep my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug plates. Also, here is where I keep my stamps that coordinate with CTMH cartridges in Large CTMH Organizers. They are divided up by cartridge, so I have one for Art Philosophy, Artiste, and Artbooking.|
|Here is where I keep my loose ribbon (by color), my E2, my Cricut Mini, and Your Story. I also keep brads, markers, and extra scissors here. In the Medium clear CTMH organizer, I have all of my Picture My Life cards.|
|Here is a better look at my Picture My Life organization.|
|In these CTMH stamp organizers, I keep all of my M sized stamps, dies, font stamps, and seasonal stamps. Also, when there is a new catalog, I keep all of the new stamps here, so I am sure to use them before they get integrated with all of the other stamps.|
|This cabinet holds my iron, starch, Gypsy, extra adhesives, CTMH How To books, and other crafting books.|
|In this cabinet, I keep paints and misc supplies.|
|Here are my Cricut cartridges. I got these containers at Joann's.|
|Giveaways, envelopes, misc ribbon, gift bags, and cartridges that have not been organized yet.|
|Acrylic blocks for stamping.|
|Not the most organized looking drawer, but I know where to find what I need. This drawer houses my chalk inks and misc stamping supplies.|
|This is where I keep my Cricut supplies like blades and such.|
|More stamping supplies like embossing powders.|
|More cardstock and my label maker.|
|Here is where I store my alterable items.|
|I keep my albums and other misc items in here.|
|I have this on one of my walls in my room. It was a Christmas present from my son and I just love it! I think he got it at Kirkland's.|
