{the studio}

I took some pics today of my scrapbook studio. This is where I play with paper and glue. (click on the photos to see them up close)

I keep embellishments in these baskets separated by theme

 older patterned papers are in these towers

Cricut machine and punches in the baskets below

rubber stamps

photo printer and scanner


alpha stickers separated by color

Martha Stewart punches

more Martha Stewart Punches ;)

cardstock is separated by color of course!
I'm in dire need of some yellow as you can tell.
I need to remedy that!

chipboard alphas are stored in this cabinet, separated by letter

I hang layouts before putting them into albums

I use some of my vintage Milk Glass collection
to hold things

The island/storage table is in the middle of the room, and is 42" tall because I like to stand when I scrapbook. I have tall chairs for when friends come to crop :)

The studio has two walls with windows. Natural lighting is perfect in there! (it doesn't always work for picture taking though lol)
My hubby made everything except for the shelf unit that the embellishment baskets are in, and the 2 paper storage towers. The towers are by K & Co. and I got them for free when a scrapbook store moved. Right now my patterned paper (the new stuff) is in the island, separated into Cropper Hopper vertical paper holders. Sweet hubby is working on some shelving for them.
There is also hardwood floor halfway into the room, but EVERYTHING needs to come out to finish the rest of the room  ~ugh~  I'm  kinda dragging my feet on that part.  I also want to take the cottage cheese junk off the ceiling. lol  Other than that,
I love it!
So there you have it, my own little scrappy space.

This is one of the prettiest scrapbook rooms I have ever seen. And it looks so functional too. I really like your big table in the middle of the room. I have you bookmarked for inspiration now!

I SOOOO want your room! Will you please come organize & decorate mine?! It's on my to-do list for this week-end-disaster that it is! Punches---i solved my punch storage problem with over the door clear-pocket shoe holder! I absolutely LOVE it!!! i think it's by Mainstays and they are sturdy! Makes it super duper easy to find the right punch!
