Today I've got a linear sketch for you. Lots of long boxes to play with. Keep them straight, or tilt them. Make them out of PP, Photos, or use one of them as a space for journaling. Whatever you do, have fun!

Hi everyone, Andrea here sharing my scrap space with you all.Although this is our office, its not dedicated solely to my scrap supplies (much as I’d like it to be!).There is also a couch in here and a bookshelf with albums and magazines in and all of my daughter’s growing craft supplies.
So this is my corner of the room.It’s very tidy right now because this was a great excuse for me to tidy and to cull.I’m one of those people who need to see things in order to use them so if it’s hidden away it doesn’t get used – so every now and then I cull my supplies.I’m actually becoming quite ruthless at this.I’ve come to realize that I don’t need piles of supplies and having a small scrap space like this works well for me.You can see my desk where I work – I like to scrap standing up most of the time.
Next to my scrap desk is my computer desk where I also have a scanner and printer – very important as I print all my photos at home and also play around a lot on the computer.Under the computer desk is where I store my patterned paper and cardstock in acrylic paper trays.This works for me in this space but eventually I think I would like to try vertical storage.
On my desk I keep tools I use a lot: pens, scissors, knife, ruler and mat, photo tabs and glue stick.Also I have this cool basket that I keep mounted stamps and ink cubes in.Beside that is a set of wooden drawers that I keep other wooden stamps in plus inks, acrylic blocks and paints.In the desk drawers I keep spare computer inks, photo paper, printer paper and other odds and ends.
Beside the desk I have these cubes where I keep several plastic containers.In them are paints, Cuttlebug dies etc, spare minialbums, chipboard letters and shapes, cardmaking equipment, extra embellishments, bead jewellery equipment (another craft I do), embroidery thread and my Fiskars Stamppress.On top of the cubes I keep current and unfinished projects, various glues and my toolbox which is filled with lots of useful tools – this is great for lugging to crops.Beside the cubes I keep my Fiskars trimmers, shape templates and ScrapBoss and my Cuttlebug.
On the other side of the cubes I have folders in which I keep all my flat scrapbook supplies such as stickers, rubons and alphas.I take everything out of its original packaging and they go into clear pockets in alphabetical order of manufacturer.Except for Heidi Grace and Cloud 9 which have files of their own.I also have a folder for clear acrylic stamps and unmounted stamps which I keep attached to Ezimount sheets.Also under the desk is a file folder for all my scrap paper and cardstock.
On the wall beside my desk I have 3 shelves.The top shelf contains button jars and baskets for punches.The middle shelf has ribbon jars (you can see I like to have things arranged by colour!) and containers for embellishments such as tags, flowers, tape, felt etc.The bottom shelf has little buckets filled with bead tubes, containers for small embellishments such as brads, sequins, snaps and eyelets etc and also glitter glue containers.You can see also on these shelves I like to display a few minialbums that I’ve done.
As I said on the other side of the room is a bookshelf where I keep my albums, more minialbums, idea books and magazines, felt and fabric pieces and all my daughter’s craft supplies.So that’s it, small but it’s all I need, for now!
