My Scrapping Space.....

So Gloria left a message saying that she would like to see photos of my scrapping space - so today as promised - I am going to share my space with you......

I am very very lucky that hubby understands my need for my own space along with my need to scrap. Hence when we built our home, it was agreed upon that I would have my own scrapbooking room and he would have his own office where he could keep all the Hooah, Hooah Military stuff. (Yeah - cause that crap aint going anywhere else in my house!!! Oh - did I think that out loud!??!! Bahahaha)

Ok - now let me be totally honest here.... Hubby was deployed to Iraq when I closed on our house - and he was gone almost the whole first 16 months I lived in our home - hence he wasn't here to say what I could or could not do!!! And that's REALLY how I came about to have my own awesome space!!! Bahahaha.... (But hey... I did hold up my end of the deal - and he has his own space as well!)

So without further delay... here is my space! Come on in, kick your shoes off, grab a diet coke and some adhesive and scrap awhile!!

Ok - so this here is the view as you are walking into my space. (The door to my scrapping space actually opens up to our living room/dining area/kitchen. So if I am scrapping I can still see through the door to the main part of our house! Which is really nice!) Oh - and if you want to see a bigger photo - just click on it and it should pop up bigger!

This is a close up of my cutting area. I have my rotary cutter here... and some really cute storage bins.

This is a close up of my work space. Due to the "T" shape work area, I can actually have three people scrapping at one time - which is really nice! (And you can see my 13" KNK and laptop over on the right hand side!!)

This is my closet - to maximize the space in my room - I took off the doors and I covered the doorway with white curtains. I also took some of the matching fabric and make a strip on the bottom of the curtains, and then I took some scraps of the fabric and covered the buttons on the top to make it coordinate with the rest of the room!

Here is a photo of the inside of the closet! I actually put that closet organizer in there all by myself! (Which is quite a funny store as I actually got stuck in there and couldn't get out!!!! LOL)
Here is a photo of my storage/display area. I made the shelves out of 1/2 cement blocks and wood boards that I painted! (Supper easy and cheap cheap cheap!) This is where I store a lot of my ribbon and such - along with my solid colored card stock (yes all that paper you are seing is just solid 12x12 card stock!!).

Here is a close up of the display area with a different set of layouts/projects on it. I love this system as I complete an item I can hang it up and display it before I actually put it in my book! And if I get bored with the view - it is easy peasy to change!!

Well that is it for the most part - Hope you enjoyed visiting!

Hey - Don't forget I am having a 30% off sale at Paperthreads starting tomorrow (Friday) and going through Saturday night (midnight eastern time!!)

All my cutter files will be included in this sale including "Home is where"...

There are several other designers also having a sale this day - so make sure you check it out!!! You don't want to miss it!!!!

(Oh and if you don't own a cutting machine - this scrapbooking title is available ready to use at the Beloved Keepsakes Store! Check it out!)

Until Next Time!

Great space Lori!! How do you like that Quickuts storage cubby with the tins? I was thinking of getting one myself.

Your room is awesome Lori. I'll have to tell you, it kind of scares me how many items I see similar to mine... including the white tabbed curtains with buttons added, and the countertop with a curtain below. I love the purple. Mine has pink and green touches. Oh, and yours looks a lot more organized. Thank you for sharing pictures, I enjoyed seeing them. Thanks to Gloria for asking to see your space.

Aaaaahhh!!! That's absolutely gorgeous! Can I come live with you? I'll bet no one steals your tape and/or scissors, EVER! LOL!

I love your space!! I am planning to build my own home in the spring and my husband has promised I could have my own room for scrapbooking. It is great to see how you decorated your space; you have given me lots of wonderful ideas! I love your extra counter that comes out like a T! Thank you so much for sharing the pictures!!

Thank you so much, Lori, for sharing your special room with us. I love seeing how creative people have set up their work space. It inspires and encourages me. Your home is lovely. Purple is my favorite color, and it makes your room seem restful yet stimulating. You are a very blessed lady! :o)
