Now mind you, my scrap space still isn't finished. There is nothing more than white paint on the walls and we still do not have a drop ceiling (the room is in our basement which is finished except for the ceiling thus far.)
There are a few things I really love about this space... I can see my grandsons playing while I work if I happen to be scrapping while they are in my care and the room looks out (and walks out) to my patio area that is also fenced for the dogs (so I can let the rotten little critters in and out and in and out to their hearts content while I am working... grrr...lol). Oh, yes it isn't far from the laundry room so I can keep laundry going while I work... and there is a bathroom just beyond that... so I don't have to run upstairs anymore (bless my man's heart for putting in a full bathroom downstairs!). When you get to be my age (and have given birth to three big fat babies, being in close proximity to a pee-pee room is a real plus! :-) Especially given the amount of Diet Pepsi I consume while I am scrapping!
So here are the photos in sequence for the most part.
The next few photographs are close-ups of storage on the white shelves and in the plastic storage containers with drawers. In the 12 x 12 drawers I mostly store patterned paper by manufacturer (each drawer is labeled with what is inside) some of the drawers I also use to store odds and ends, like ATG refills, paints, alpha, chipboard and the like). I store all my scraps right with the larger papers they came from. The 8 1/2 by 11 drawers I use for that size cardstock. I use PTI pretty much exclusively. I also use American Crafts solid color cardstock almost exclusively. On the bottom shelves (not pictured) are storage tubs that I keep my airbrush system, items for altering, Bind-It-All supplies, fabrics and other odds and ends that I don't use regularly but still want to have close by. On the shelves I also store albums I am working on alongside my scrapping, cardmaking and crafting magazines for easy reference.
And for printing my photographs I use this space directly across from my scrap space. Our family room is to the left on the other side of the half wall.
And last but certainly NOT least, a tour of my scrap space would not be complete if I did not include a photograph of my Scrapcat Ziggy (just like in my layout, he is pictured here sitting in the drawer that I keep my Studio Calico Kits). He is my constant companion while I am scrapping...some days that works out better than others. :-) Although I do have six other cats Ziggy is by far my biggest "helper"...cough, cough). :-)
