My Craft Space

Hello crafty friends!
 
Today I'm going to take you on a little tour of my craft space.
This is a Computer Armoire that I have converted into a craft space. I bought it on craigslist for $75!
What a steal!!!! I wish I had a lot of space and money to have a dream craft studio.
I'm just not that lucky. I have a small corner in the family room.
 
I have searched for ideas to make the best of the space that I have and now let me show you...



 
This is where I keep my Big Shot and all my dies. I keep them in a small CD holder, I need another one. I found this one at the dollar tree. :)
 
All of my loose ribbon goes in the cookie jar. That ribbon bag just didn't work for me, my ribbon was always smashed wrinkled and always getting stuck. Now I use the ribbon bag to hold all of my rolls and packaged ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts. The card boxes under my ribbon bag are full of Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers.. I have 5 more card boxes behind there, too. :)
Under the Ribbon jar I have a bin full of chipboard.
 
In the first drawer I keep envelopes, packages bubble wrap.
Second drawer is misc tools.
Third drawer has more dies and ribbon.
 
I got these trays from Michaels in the clearance section for 3.99. I keep my scor-tape and dimensionals, gluesticks, glue, tape, photos, journal cards, printed quotes, washi tape, flair buttons and anything else that get's loose.

 
In the swin out door I keep my Scrapbook, Magnolia Mini Album, watercolor paper, cryogen, Copic Xpress paper, cutter, I have another 12 x 12 paper holder in there, too. Here's the 2 punches I use most and my crop o dile. All of my other punches are in a beach basket on the side of my armoire.
 
The plastic case all the way to the right has all of my brads, eyelets, charms and other small embellishments. That pink mini file holder has all my images that I have stamped or printed and haven't colored. They are organized by manufacture.The bucket tin has pens, pencils, glue, scissors..
The drawer that are opened have all of my flower soft. The bottom drawer has my bow easy, and other stencils.
 
Here's my sprays and stickles.
The drawers have my glitters and sparkly fluff.
 
Ahh, here's my Copics and Refills! :)
Oh, and smooch spritzers.
 
Then I have my journals and notepads.
Distress inks and other ink pads.
My Studio Calico Project Life Kit.
The other containers have my wood veeners, bakers twine, hat pins and other misc large embellishments.
 
Cardstock!!!
The blue bin has all my scraps, pink and purple bin both have ppatterned paper. On the side of that I have clear boxes of cards. All of the photo boxes have my stamps. I store my Magnolia's in baggies by collection.
 
That first wicker basket has cards, second has paper pads, ones I don't really use or out of season.
The pink basket has what's left of my stampin up stamps.
My pink tote has more totes and containers that I'm not using.
 
I got these hanging storage pockets from the dollar tree. I have all of my packaged embellishments in this one. The snap file folder has all of my Alphabets. Below that is my mini white board.. so I know what needs to be done. Looks like I'm caught up... yeahhhhh right!!!
 
After storing all of my packaged Embellishments and stickers in my hanging pouches I was like well now what am I going to do with my clip it up. So I use it for all of my 6x6 paper packs. It's heavy, but works great! Beside that I have a small wicker basket with the cards I've made recently. Under my clip it up is my mega paper cutter.
 
More stickers and embellishments on this door.
 
 
 When I'm done I stick it all inside...
 
...and close it up.
 
Here's the view I have while I create. :)
 
I hope you enjoyed my craft space and I was able to give you some ideas.
