Hello, Crate Paper friends! Today I am sharing a few photos of where I craft and scrapbook! My craft space is essentially the same as I shared here on this post on the Crate Paper blog in 2018. I have moved a few things around as my crafting life changes and updates!
I have a U shaped set up for my main workspace. Almost everything I need is stored in this area; I can easily reach for stamps, inks, adhesives, tools, paper and extras. I store big items like my manual die cutting machine, cinch etc in a closet across from my desk area. My Silhouette machine is upstairs with my main computer.
My workspace is a mish-mash of older desks, Ikea shelving and Ikea drawer units and storage bins and baskets I have collected over the years from stores like Homesense. I am always teetering on the fine line of needing to see items in order to use them and having items tucked away to have a tidier space, so a combination of closed and open storage seems to work best for me.
I find stamps one of the hardest items to store; I currently have them in multiple bins on my shelf and on my desk. I seem to remember what stamps are in each bin, but have been looking into purchasing stamp sleeves and the lovely bins that a lot of crafters seem to use!
I love my cork boards that are in this area. I will pin up recent work or something inspiring, and when it gets too cluttered, I start fresh again! The bins under the corkboard hold more stamps, word sticker sheets, and the envelopes in the middle compartment hold tags, extra white cardstock silhouette cuts and doilies.
More stamp storage and another cork board. I love these bins and, at times, change out what is being stored. I had my Crate Paper Journal Studio supplies in the top row for a long time!
My large drawer unit holds bits and bobs in the top drawer, paper and my scoreboard in the 2nd drawer, stamping inks in the 3rd drawer, the bottom drawers have punches, large stamps and supplies that don’t have a proper home anywhere else!
Thanks so much for joining me today for a quick tour! Happy days and happy crafting to you in your happy place!
