Scrapbook Studio Tour: Part III

Welcome back to the Studio 360 Tour!  I'm going to continue on sharing the details of my newly renovated scrapbook studio.

If you've missed it, you can view Part I here and Part II here!  Click the images to view in larger format.

So let's continue on around the room to the south wall:

Next to Molly is the 4x2 Expedit bookcase from Ikea.  I love the versatility of this piece.  (Check out this great project by {The Smith Nest} - perfect for a little corner!)  I used it vertically for the desk and here it is horizontally:

I originally was going to use it vertically, up against the large bookcase, with a 2x2 unit right next to it.  But decided to go this route, to have more counter space.

For things like...

My glass jars (Walmart) filled with ribbon and trim; washi tape in galvanized buckets with chalkboard labels (Target), my paint racks (purchased from wholesaler):

My Victorian two-tiered plant stand (Costco) which instead of plants, houses my mists, paint brushes, mixed mediums and spray adhesives:

My Clip-It-Up stand:

The bottom rack holds all of my letter stickers, sorted by colour.  I love my old vintage Basic Grey letter stickers but the 12x12 format was too large to rotate freely, and because they usually consist of separate family colours, I cut them apart and store them in the appropriate colour family.

The top rack of my Clip-It-Up holds my rubber/acrylic stamps that are most often used, sorted by manufacturer:

The shelving unit itself holds...

My scrapbook albums.  As you can see, some of them still have their wrappings on!  I purchased them from my wholesaler in colours, as per my Library of Memories system (per Stacey Julian).  The red (and smaller) black bins with silver grommets are from my Shoppers Drug Mart stores from last summer, but I think they carry similar ones at Walmart.  I still have to add tags to everything to easily find everything.

On this shelving unit, they hold 1) my Slice tool and acessories; 2) my rub-ons (which need major purging!):

3) chipboard shapes and 4) chipboard/acrylic alphas:

In one cubby, next to the albums, I have a bin full of Just Cre8 stamps, designed by me!  (And now 40% off with coupon so check it out here! :))  Next to it are my stamping pads and a DIY project to store masks and templates, based on this fabulous tutorial by Alissa Fast of Cocoa Daisy (bound by binder rings):

Next to these are two more bins, one with my lesser-used acrylic stamps and another with my heat tool and embossing powders (can you say obsessed?):

Above the entire unit is a Ribba picture ledge from Ikea that we (and by we, I mean Gary) spray-painted with Krylon paint in Gloss Black.  It holds 8 Rajtan glass jars with brads and eyelets, sorted by colour, my beloved little metal chick (isn't he adorable?!)...

As well as a leather "S" (both found at Michaels) and this lovely stamped tile from VersaTile, owned by my friend, Lori Mancini.  It is one of my favourite quotes (and found in my Words to Live By in my sidebar):

Next week, we'll continue on around the room!  (ETA:  Click here for Part IV)
