Wanted to show you the rest of my office/scrap room and give some details from my scrap space! Like I shared before, the room is a family office space. The kids often spend time in there with me while I scrap or while dinner is being made.
So seating is a must!
To help keep things organized, I put up this system. I love the Pottery Barn stuff, but can't afford it right now! So Target it is!
This room works as a scrap space, but only because it is organized and orderly. As you can see in the first photo, it is right off the kitchen. It can't be messy. So everything needs a place.
Buttons go into pretty and very inexpensive Ikea jars!
I put all of my chipboard alphabets into a drawer. It helps them to not fall off the backing!
I also package up common elements into my Ikea boxes. All embellishments not from design teams are sorted by color and placed in individual boxes. I have a holder for rub-ons, a box for stamps and ink. I sort my design team stuff into plastic bags by collection. When I scrap, I grab the paper and the corresponding bag and it is easy!
Speaking of design teams and my scrap space, I put it to good use today! I got the fabulous, fabulous, fabulous March kit from The Nook...wow! Crate Paper and all the right goodies to go with it! Check it out before it sells out!
Here is my first layout!!
It is great stuff!
