My long-awaited new and improved scrap room!

Owen has been sick with a cold this weekend so I found myself stuck in the house. The ONLY good thing about this was that I had some time to finish up the last projects for my new scrap room!

And now, without further ado (since you all have been pestering me about photos for weeks!)...

From the right: an antique sewing table I got at a garage sale for $25 (with mini albums on top), my treasured antique card catalog (with Cricut on top)... I will be replacing the cheap lamp at some point.

My wall art project: Ikea frame with the glass removed and vinyl letters/images cut with Sure Cuts a Lot and my Cricut

Antique card catalog that I randomly found on Craiglist for a steal! It weighs a ton!

The drawers have lots of things inside: Stickles, adhesives, brads, glitter, mists, paint, Cricut cartridges, etc. I still need to add the rest of the labels.

My corner armoire is from Home Goods. Owen's rocking horse just didn't have a home so he's in there too!

Inside the armoire is my paper, kits, some sewing stuff, cards/envelopes... still need to cram some more in here too!

The middle of the room

This shelf and the one under my desk are cheapies from Target. The cubes hold chipboard, books, metal embellishments, stickers, fabric embellishments, and buttons.

Bowls on top are from Melissa Frances and are filled with small paper bits like journaling books, tickets, paper ribbon, and tags.

The left side of the room: my desk area (I really need a new self healing cutting mat!)

The tall cabinet is a refinished piece we got for $10 at a garage sale and the other is from the As Is room at Ikea and houses my sewing machine, Thickers, and a file with current projects.

The tall cabinet contains my flowers, pins, Bind it All, catseye inks, punches, printer, and alterables.

Wall art was created from clearanced glassless frames from Michaels, cork sheets, and upholstery remnants. These cork boards hold recent layouts, lists, and whatever else I want to hang up.

The second cheap Target shelf is under my desk to block the view. It holds ribbons, bling, epoxy/wood embellishments, my Slice, and rub-ons.

I sorted all my ribbons, cleared out the ones I didn't want anymore and carded all of them on chipboard.


So there you have it!! It took a lot of work but I absolutely LOVE it. I find that my productivity has gone WAY up since moving rooms and I want to spend a lot of time in here. Also, because it is in a central, visible area of the house I am forced to keep it somewhat clean!

I would really love to hear what you think of my new space!

So...

a) Props for the Socrates

b) The whole setup is all classy and stuff

c) I basically agree with your thesis, but theoretically, if you had a terrible life, you could dedicate it to creating the Most Horrible Scrapbook Imaginable, which would be kind of cool.

I think your new space is awesome & ready for a scrappy good time! I love that you re-purposed a bunch of pieces instead of buying all new. And your Target cubes are great - don't discount them! Great job!
