WELCOME to my Scrap Space
I am lucky enough to have an entire room devoted to my stuff. I am a work-from-home mom so it also doubles as my office space. I found a zebra lamp with pink trim and it inspired my entire room :) I am including some of my favorite finds for storage solutions beneath each pic.
I found the white shelving unit that is attached to the wall at IKEA. It holds all of my frequently used items so I have easy-access to grab them. The white rolling drawers under my desk on the right is from Target. It is slightly smaller than 12x12 so I keep things in there like chipboard alphabets (in ziplock bags), my punches/tools, scraps, etc.
This was my biggest splurge for organization in my office. I wanted a way to display my papers in a way where I could easily find what I'm looking for. I bought these quite a few years ago but you can still find them by doing a google search for 12x12 paper racks. For my cardstock, I use black plastic 12x12 paper holders that I found at Oriental Trading Co. This sits on the end of my desk so cardstock is always within reach. My dad created the black paper storage tower in the middle out of wood (This was my first one and was all the room I needed at the time. Wow has that changed - lol!)
RIBBON & STAMP PAD STORAGE
My dad actually custom-designed my stamp pad storage. (I am a lucky girl!)
RIBBON STORAGE: The ribbon storage is an easy do-it-yourself project. On top I have a bathroom towel bar & below is a paper towel rack. I then purchased the following items: binder clips/rings & mesh plastic grid used for needle work. I used one sheet of mesh to create 6 smaller rectangles. I wrapped my ribbon around it and secured it with tape. Punch a hole in the top of the mesh, attach your ring & clip onto your bar. Easy peasy and it holds all of my loose ribbon.

STAMP STORAGE & SCRAPBOOK ALBUM STORAGE
I found the book case (it's really just shelves because there's no back on it), at a garage sale. I brought it home and painted it black. It was an awesome find because the shelves were adjustable. Since there is no back on it, the albums fit perfectly! Besides scrapping I am also a stamper. I love, love, love my acrylic stamps. I found the plastic containers at a 99 Cent Store.
I purchased a Clip-it-Up. You can easily clip up all of your smaller embellishments. I have seen ladies make these themselves just like what I did with the ribbon holder. You can clip things to any skinny rod. (or clip to hangers to store things in a closet) :) On the back wall there is a wire shelf where I keep my spooled ribbon.
MY DISPLAY WALL
I am always creating new work but was sad to put it into an album right away. I found a scrapbook store that was going out of business and purchased some display grid from them. I was able to get 3 pieces of grid + hangers + 2 shelves for around $20. Now I have a place to showcase my recent work & it is always a focal point for anyone who stops by my room. (PS - there's the lamp :) )
Thanks for Looking!!!
