My Scrapbook Room

I thought I would share some of my storage ideas in my scrabook room. I think I have somewhat of an addiction to the supplies ! It seems that most of us who scrapbook enjoy the purchase of the supplies almost as much :)

This table holds  my punches within easy reach. The paper racks underneath hold paper that I dont use as much. (Christmas and special occasions, etc) On top the table I have wire file holders that I got cheap at walmart and I stand up in them my paper pads and the large ziplock bags that I use to hold the opened paper pads and scraps. Lots and Lots of My Minds Eye paper here and DCWV as well. I just discovered the Cosmo Cricket line and am in love with them now as well. I have an assortment of K&Company pads too.

I came up with this ribbon idea sorta out of desperation. My friend Kelly had mentioned that her cousin had done something like this and I started to try to figure out how in the world I could get this done cheap and get rid of the huge knot of ribbon that I dont use because its IN A HUGE KNOT ! I tried everything. I had the little bags but they wouldnt hold it all and I tried the basket but it was a mess..... This was my answer and I am totally loving it. Get a piece of wire and two flower pot hooks and run several boxes of standard paper holders thru the wire and pinch the end of the ribbons and let them hang. Then when you want a piece of ribbon just chop off what you need. Its simple to pinch the clip open to add more or use up the last little piece. Thanks Stephanie for the storage inspiration by way of the grape vine :)

This is my answer for storage of the photos that I have not yet scrapbooked. Any new photos that I take I dont print until the time that I am actually going to scrapbook. I print all my photos at home now on my regular HP printer. That way I dont get these big piles and I can choose the size I need right when I am scrapping.

I have this big basket of thickers and sticker letters that I keep close to my spot and when I need a fast title these work great. I also have the cricut expression and it is just a spin of the chair away but I am only just going over to it and havent totally figured out the sure cuts a lot software yet.

I love cardstock ! I have a problem..I know it ! I store all of it in a line sorted by color (thanks to Kelly who keeps me organized) I also stand up here some of the paper pads that I have. You will see there on the closest end of the pic a black box sorta thing on top of the table....that is a file holder and I just stand up in it the pieces of paper that are scraps and sort them by color. Something I am doing now is when I purchase a paper pad I slide the whole pad down into a large zip lock bag and as I use the paper I drop all the scraps into the bag so everytime I use that paper I have the matching scraps handy.

Flowers Flowers Flowers....Never enough flowers :)

Baskets hold everything together ! This is my yard supplies

Once I had all of my brads kinda in little drawers but realized I didnt use them that way so I dumped them all into these three drawers and now I love to dig thru and find the perfect treasure.

I should but I dont use the stickles and glimmer mist as much as others ? I sat it on my table just today hoping that I would use it more if it is in my line of sight.

More flowers !

My homemade cliping system for ribbon.

I must have bling ! I cant wait to go to Louisville in February to buy more :)

These files set under my cardstock table and have a huge zip lock for each letter of the alphabet and they hold all my chipboard or cut out and not used yet letters.

On my table I keep these coffee cups and the items that you cant scrapbook without stay within quick reach.

 I hope some of my ideas inspire you for storage in your own scrapbook room.
