Today we are featuring Ashely's Scrap Space. Check out her tips and tricks on how she stores her supplies.. You will love it!
Hello. Ashley here with a tour of my scrap room.
My room is located in a small office on the first floor of the house. It's near the kitchen which is convenient. Luckily it has a door that can be closed to hide the mess that I always make when working on a project!
The wall above my desk is blank at the moment because I rearranged my room recently (the desk used to be under the window) and I'm still trying to decide what to put there.
I have two large bookshelves on each side of the room to store my paper and stickers.
The drawers are the Alex units from Ikea and I love them. They hold all my tools, adhesives, embellishments, and any other random supplies. They also provide counter space when I need more room.
I keep the Thickers stored upright in this basket, on my desk, to make it easier to flip through and find what I'll be using.
I keep my paper in these 12 x 12 vertical paper holders. I like to pull out the individual paper holder and flip through it to find what I'm looking for.
More paper and sticker storage.
Washi Storage. I like to keep them in a removable plastic container. When I go to crops, I just grab the whole thing and take it with me. I cut chipboard into strips and taped them into place to keep the washi from rolling around.
Stickles. Same storage as the washi. When I go to crops, I just pull the entire container out of the drawer and take it with me. I also used chipboard again to keep the bottles of Stickles in their place.
Sequins and small brads. I use clear containers that I found in the jewelry making (bead) section of the craft store.
Some of my embellishments are stored by color. Inside each drawer, I have further divided them into trays for flowers, tags and paper for layering, large brads and buttons, etc..
I took most of the embellishments out of their original packaging. Some of this stuff I've had for years and it wasn't getting used... Now that I can see it, touch it, and go through it, it's finally getting used!
Thanks for taking a look at my room!
