Scrapbook Studio Tour: Part IV

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 IPart II and Part III on my Studio page.  Click the images to view in larger format.

So let's continue on along the south wall:

The largest piece of furniture in the room (and the one most stuffed!) is the 5x5 Expedit bookcase.  This bookcase holds the bulk of my cardstock and paper, along with embellishments.

The first cubby holds a glass vase (from flowers received from Gary on our wedding day) with random feathers, a glass wire bale jar (Yankee candle repurposed) billed with miscellaneous metal embellishments, another galvanized bucket (Target), this one filled with wooden pieces, a decorated box with Sharpies and assorted markers and an acrylic box with trinket pins.  The next cubby holds my LOM storage albums (behind the altered clipboard), a file folder with ideas and some quote books.

Next, I have a glass jar (Walmart) filled with all of my flowers - I forced myself to limit them to this jar - along with a sweet 4x4 canvas that I created.  The next cubby holds a black canvas bin with products for my Canadian Scrapbooker projects and the green metal bin holds extra adhesive.  The final section in this row holds my collection of vintage books and those to tear up for projects.

The bulk of my open stock paper (i.e. not kit- or DT-related) is housed on 12x12 acrylic paper trays.  I had six that I purchased from a LSS that was going out of business, but wanted more.  A quick search of Kijiji and I found a local woman who had 30 trays available!  My cardstock is sorted by colour, with neutrals (white, black, Super Stock) on the 6 trays in the first cubby, and the rest in rainbow order, in the next 12 acrylic paper trays.  I keep my current CS project supplies on the next six trays and my Cocoa Daisy kits in the last six.

I also store all of my glitters, Stickles and glitter sprays in a canvas bin.  Two more galvanized buckets hold my sanding and other scrapbooking tools.

A red leather bin holds all of my EK Success punches and any others that do not fit on my wall.  I also keep my Martha Stewart scoring board, glass and self-healing cutting boards in this cubby.

I have an entire cubby just for my Spectrum Noir markers! :)  Other journaling markers are stored in a plastic bin from the Dollar Store.  The last two cubbies holds 8 Cropper Hopper paper holders, filled with old Just Cre8 kits, die cuts papers and cardstock, and patterned papers, sorted by manufacturer.

The next row is filled with Kassett boxes from Ikea.  These four are filled with myStamp Box stamps, stamping supplies, tags and journaling blocks.

The next 8 boxes are colour coded and hold all of my embellishments.  I found that when I was scrapping, I always searched for products by colour and this made the most sense to me!  The last two cubbies hold magazine holders and some photo boxes.

The final row is filled with large Kassett boxes which contain canvasses, card bases/envelopes and card kits, mini albums and items waiting to be altered!

Next week, I'll share the final wall and my custom built workdesk!  (ETA:  Click here for Part V)
