Scrap Space update 2017


Hi people!

I've had a shuffle and tidy up... so here is my scrap space, updated for 2017.

My scrap space is a shared zone. It is in a central area of our house that would have been the dining room. On the other side of the room is my work office.







 

MY DESK:
 
I have a long white desk, loaded above and below with my storage items. As a bonus, the current configuration means I can see the TV in the living room when I scrap. It means I can scrap and "watch" the football with dear husband David!
 
 
On the wall to my left of my desk, I have Ikea picture rail shelves for some framed layouts, and my Colour Blast products.
 
 
This mini cube unit sits to the left. Stamps and things live in these blue cube boxes.
 
 

 
Another mini cube unit lives at the back of my desk. This unit holds various things including pens, embossing/ ink pads, as well as some small stacked containers with little embellishments like: small chipboard, charms, glitter, beads, etc.
 


This is "Bob", he clips on the front of my desk. It's my rubbish bin, plus I put my glues in the holder. Old teatowel handy for messy stuff! 

 
 
 These embellishment boxes sit prominently on my desk and are well used! 
 

So these embellishment boxes are my MOST favourite thing.... I have colour sorted all my little embellishments and they go in these boxes...
 
Here is an example of what they look like inside. CRAMMED full of good stuff! It might not look organised, but I have a general system for where I put small flowers, cool embellishments, small tags & diecuts, buttons and flairs. 

 
 
I bought these plastic drawer units from Officeworks. They sit right on my desk, and are the perfect size for Washi tapes, and my collection of Charms Creations.
 
 
UNDER MY DESK:
 
Under my desk, on either side, are these white IKEA Antonius drawers.

Right side drawers.... and here is what is in each drawer......
 
Right side - drawer 1 - Small stickers, brads, enamel dots, tags, polaroids and other embellishments - stored in small boxes, stacked and easy to access.
 
Right side - drawer 2 - These are my colour packs. Again colour sorted embellishments in these pencil cases. These contain tags, diecuts, doilies and all sorts of flat-ish stuff.  

Right side - drawer 3 - These old trusty containers that hold my colour-sorted small embellishments. In here you find my sequins (can you guess - yup - they are colour sorted), as well as all those brads & eyelets that I still have in my stash from when I first started to scrap.
 
Right side - drawer 4  - Ribbons - Different coloured ribbons are in snap lock bags. Again it looks messy, but because things are colour sorted, it is pretty easy to find what I need.
 
 
 Left side drawers.... and here is what is in each drawer......
 
 
Left side - drawer 1 - I have my BIG flowers colour-sorted into snap lock bags. Fabric, doilies and tissue paper stored down the back.
 
Left side -drawer 2 - I have two boxes in here; the front box has colour-sorted alphabet stickers and the back box has all my cool stickers.

Left side - drawer 3 - Here are some of my Thicker Alphas, and in the boxes at the back are other snap lock bags of alphabets (think: chipboard, acrylic, canvas, etc. etc.).
 
Left side - drawer 4 - And more Thicker Alphas. And chipboard alphas along the side.
 
My paper scraps sit in this box at my feet... all in folders for each colour.
 

MY COLOUR BLAST STASH 

My Colour Blast goodies sit on these shelves.... Looks pretty impressive!

Colour Shimmer Sprays and Colour Embossing Powders in 21 colours!

Colour Pastes in 21 colours!


Colour Sprays!
 
BEHIND MY DESK:
 
I have my Ikea trolley loaded with bits and pieces, another couple of shelves and a cupboard. 
 
This white cupboard has papers and extra stamps.  The shelf above has blue baskets - these hold my punches and spare adhesives and tools.

These drawer units from Kmart hold all my patterned papers which I have organised by, you know.... colour....!!!
 
 
 Ready for me to go create!

 
Thanks for looking today!

"Scrap the Boys" July 2017

Hi everyone,
 
Sharing my Scrap the Boys Design team layout today for July.
 
Again, I "borrowed" a friend's grandsons to scrap!
 
It was based on this sketch, although you can see that I rotated the sketch and used only one photo.
 
 
Here is my page....
 
 
 
Took my chance to use this perfect Charms Creations Super Star!
 
And some perfect Colour Blast splatters.
 
 
 
 
Thanks for looking!
