Have you had a chance to check out Anabelle O'Malley's Scrapbook and Card Double Scoop galleries? She rocked as our September guest designer, and now we're excited to give you a little peek of where she made her projects!
Hi, it's Anabelle and I'm here to share my scrap space with you today. I'm lucky to have a room all to myself. It's definitely my 'woman cave'. I get most of my scrapping done early in the morning. By 6am I can usually be found sitting at my table, with a cup of tea, watching the morning news and creating projects.
Here is a view of the space. I'm still working on it, so ignore the lavender carpeting. (Hoping to replace that this fall. Any suggestions for which type of flooring I should go for?) Aqua is my favorite color, so that's the color I went with for the walls. Red and lime green are the accent colors.
Directly behind my table is the area where I keep all of my stamps. I love having them in easy reach. I've organized them in plastic DVD sleeves and keep them in baskets sorted by manufacturer. The white basket next to my sewing machine holds my newer stamps that need to be filed. As you can see, I haven't gotten around to doing that in a while. ;)
The plastic drawers are filled with stamps, embossing powder, acrylic blocks and other items I use for stamping.
Here's my washi collection. A friend gave me this thread holder and I decided to put my rolls on it. I love washi!
I love displaying things in my room. On this shelf are some of the cards that people have sent me. Most of them were made by my talented sister in law Patty. I love seeing them as I work! To the left of the shelf is a scale that I found at a thrift shop. Right now it holds my current Project Life album. I use Snap albums because I love the size. A couple of my other recent minis are displayed there, too.
My Mister Huey's have a spot all to themselves. I used this shelf for my ribbons and buttons, sorted by color. My mists made a nice addition to the collection. ;)
I often look for cute containers to hold my items. I have a lot of milk glass, but I have collected some other items, as well. This colander sits right on my table and holds all of my adhesives.
I love this tiered wire basket and decided to display my wood stamps on it.
This vintage cooler is the perfect holder for my Studio Calico kits. I plop them in gallon sized ziploc bags and keep them in there. Every so often, I will go back and break down the kits so I can add them to my stash.
I found these planter at a flea market and decided they would be great to hold my Thickers. They are organized by color.
Currently, my Raskog cart from Ikea is my favorite thing in my scraproom. I love it! I decided to house all of my mixed media items on here. It holds my Gelatos, water colors, markers and Prima chalk inks. You can see some of my milk glass collection here. And see that table in the background with the little containers? That's my wood veneer collection.
Here's a closer look.
Well, that's about it. Thanks for taking a tour on my space with me. I'm sure you can see why I love spending time there!
