My Craft Room

After the shame of a couple of weeks ago showing my messy craft room I thought I would try and redeem myself by showing you what it looks like tidy!


This is the main pic of the desk I use to craft on. I don't know how well you can read the writing in the pic, sorry about that. The desk came from MFI ages ago and I use the XCut large cutting mat on top. In front of me is my Copics, my jar of buttons, pens and scissors and then I have a Lakland container that hold my tools and adhesives that I use on daily basis. In the draws are stickers, charms and embellies. Next is my QuicKutz storage folder then my set of purple drawers from Next. On top of these is my Sizzix Sidekick, Cuttlebug and Crop-a-Dile Big Bite. In the drawers are adhesives, embellies including brads, gem stones, dew drops etc, card blanks and larger tools. As you can see on the windowsill are jars from Ikea with flowers in by colour. Above the desk of my jars of Prima Flowers.

Under the desk is a set of wooden drawers that hold stationery and card bags and packaging as well as more Prima flowers and embellies! On the other side is 3 sets of plastic drawers that hold my beloved Nesties dies and other dies, punches and more card blanks.

This is my main desk for my computer, also from MFI. In the small white tin is my Cuttlebug embossing folders and to the left is my stamp storage.


The white cabinet is from Ikea and it is one of the best things I have ever bought. It is great for stamps! I keep all my wood mounted stamps in here and have a draw for my clear ones too. On top of the cabinet is all my unmounted stamps in the the clear cases from Elzybells. I haven't found a better soloution yet and I do quite like this one I am just not sure how high the tower is going to get!!

This is the other side of the room. I have this metal shelving from B&Q it holds all my text books for nursing and uni and craft magazine on the bottom shelf as well as my ink pads. I also tend to put the lovely cards I receive from my crafting buddies on here too! On top of the shelving unit is a tin with all my scraps of card and paper in and the other side is my ribbon storage & chipboard. To the side of that is this unit below:

At the bottom is a filing cabinet which has my A4 cardstock in including white cardstock and my SU stuff. On top is one of my other favourite purchases which are my 12x12 paper stackers. The top ones are all my cardstock in colour-ish order and the bottom six are my patterned paper. To the side are my Sizzix dies and my border punches. On top are my 6x6 paper pads which are mainly SU papers {from the paper share from the lovely Jules} and Basic Grey pads.

So thats it! I hope you enjoyed the tour of my room, sorry it took so long!!

Are they all Elyzbells, or a mixture? I love how you've got your papers organised. No wonder you create such amazing cards in a space like that!
