Scrapbooking Room Organization
Here's some photos of my newly organized scrapbooking room. I've labled the different storage units alphabetically in the pictures. I thought you might be interested to know what's tucked neatly away in all those closed doors and drawers.
A: Cardstock, solid colored paper organized by size (8 1/2 x 11 or 12 x 12) and color
B: Drawers for small items divided into 6x6 paper, buttons, adhesives, ribbons/thread, metal, small stamps, etc.
C: Drawers for pages in progress, completed pages not yet in albums, give-away items
D: Top drawers for alphabet thumb punches, bottom drawers for duplicate photos and items from swaps
E: Sizzix dies (yellow), there are more of these drawers units for Sizzix (green and blue size) out of sight on the shelf in the top left of the photo
F: Scrapbooking magazine racks
G: Medium and large punches, these shelves also hold various medium sized tools and our playing card collection
H: Idea books, Albums, page protectors, and some homeschool books
I: Large tools like my light box, sizzix machine, templates, etc. and albums
J: Large Sizzix dies (red)
K: Photos organized by person and event
L: Alphabet stamps conveniently located next to my scrapbooking table
M: Patterned paper in coordinated packs
N: Scrap paper not yet filed away
O: Patterned paper organized by theme and kits organized by theme
P: Stickers organized by theme
That's most of it. I also have a travel bag for going to crops that I keep back up tools and supplies in so that I don't have to pack and unpack for a crop and I have a blue file folder that I keep scrap paper larger than my hand organized in by color. On my desk I keep a pretty bucket full of my pens and a metal tin with my most used tools (scissors, paper piercer, knives, eyelet setter, etc.) in it.
One last photo for an overview of the whole area. Notice the bookshelf that I painted yellow this week to blend in with the basement walls!
