Scraproom Redo!

I have been an organizing fool yall!

One room at a time.

Sewing Room….Complete

Next room….My Scrap Space.

My Scrap space was organized pretty good…until I reworked my sewing room:).  One of the major causes for re-doing this room was the table that I used to scrap on was actually my cutting table. Once that table was moved I had so much space open I needed it left room for me to regroup and utilize that space much better.

Plan: Purge, Donate, Steamline and Organize

Purge: Gather all the supplies you don’t use.  I really wanted the supplies to go to someone who could use them not just the thrift store.  I had mentioned my purging at the office and my coworker suggested her daughters girl scout troop….perfect!   Well it took almost a 2 weeks to purge which ended in 10 bags of donations to the Girl Scouts!!!!


This room is actually the mud room but serves as a great crafting space.  It can be a little chilly in the winter though so I added an oil heater to the space.  I wanted this room to be bright and crisp so the color scheme is Navy, Kelly Green and Aqua.

As you walk in the room I have all my punches on the wall.  I used Bygel Rails and Basket system so that everything is visible and streamlined.  I saw this on AtHomeWithNikki in her craft space.




At the base of the punches are all things related to packaging and shipping.

Hand made templates and my color wheel


Backup Trimmer

As you scan the walls I added pegboard which is a great way to organize and see what you have.  I painted the board with the teenie bottles of craft paint from Michael’s in the Apple Tart Colorway. I have my magnetic role and my Craftsheet at the top, Thickers, Dots, Twine and Stencils.





I originally wanted to add my stencils and thickers to a binder but I find that out of side truly is out of mind.  So I am pleased where they are now.

I hope you have enjoyed the first segment of my scrap space I am really pleased with how it turned out.











Continuing the Road Trip Series with a pocket page layout.  Grandmama and I would often go the library together.  She would go into the murder mystery section  and I would go into the  youth section.



My Main photo is the bench that sits in from of the library and yes I cut it in half.  I wanted the elements to reflect my feelings and memories.



I used all kinds of elements stickers, letter stickers, paper clips, sequin and a ton of love.



I ripped a page out of the book, stickers and a library stamp.



The Library is a great way to have an adventure with loved ones and one that I will cherish.
