Organisational Systems Day 1 - The overalls

Last year I shared a post on my scrapbook corner
I still use the same corner but I kind of revamped it a little

This was my scrapbook corner last year
2012

This is my scrapbook corner this year
2013



You can see how small my room is, and i feel for those who do not have a scraproom, because I scrapbook on my work desk, and my scrap wall is a piece of wall in my bedroom which I share with 2 other person. That is how cramp my place is. Hence I decide to use the vertical space, by purchasing a 5x5 Expedit shelf (a.k.a. scrapbooker must have shelf). That stores lots of junk. This is a very messy view of my shelf as i'm having work in progress, so i usually chuck the items back into the cubes without arranging anything. I also have a wall shelf similar to this for my books. On top, i have tons of boxes from Daiso storing my inks and mediums.

Expedit is good becase each cube is around 13x13, it holds all things scrapbooking, from paper to machines.

I also use alot of plastic container as my place is very humid and dusty near the roads. Plastic is easier to clean than wood. I prefer glass, but it's fragile. Plastic is also semi see through so i can see my stuff even packed away. 

I have serveral stations in my room which i set up when i'm crafting 
Firstly my Silhouette machine on a mini foldable table, so that it can be put away when I don't need it.

Not enough foldable table? I use a huge box as a "table" for my compact printer.
It's my friend when I need to print printables, photos and journaling.

I use a foldable chair for my selphy printer if i'm using up most of the table space
else it will be beside when i craft. Love this printer, i even brought it over with me to australia when i was on a one month trip. Oh did I mention I brought over my SILHOUETTE machine too? Haha, i had lots of fun crafting there! Oh back to organisation.


My absolute favourite piece of furniture in my house now is this TEAL kitchen trolley. There is also a grey version. Look for even more trolley from ikea here.

I will share more into each section of my scrapbook room the following week. Meanwhile, you can follow my Pinterest boards where I pin all my inspiration. Here, Here and Here.

I like Katherine Quek's craft room. So neat and tidy. Unfortunately I don't have the space to even put up the Ikea shelf. I store my stuff in plastic boxes too and I also use the Ikea trolley for putting my stamp cleaners, tapes and the things I use the most when I craft like scissors etc.

Wow. I scrap in my bedroom too...but I don't have to share it with anyone else...so kudos to you for setting up a system that works.

I love all the scraprooms featured on Craft Storage Ideas. https://www.facebook.com/CraftStorage?ref=stream

P/s: Would you consider turning off word verification? I have it turned off and do not have a problem with spam. It makes it so much easier to leave you a comment. Thanks!

Love your room! I have many different stations for all too. I had made a Vine last summer when we just moved all my stuff into my new craft room! I need to make a new one! There's no more room left!

Wow! How I wish I'd had a scrapbook area big enough to put expedit shelves too. And btw, you brought your silhouette along? ! That's so cool!!

Oops!! I got too excited seeing craft space till I forgot to answer the qns >. <
I don't have any specific crafter's room that I really really love cause I think it's just so amazing to be able to have one. I only can stuff all my things into toyogo containers or those 4, 5-tier drawers. And cause it isn't that easy to access to my craft items, I tend to craft very seldom ); but, I will want to create a craft area in future (after I graduate) so that I can just replace the books with crafts!
