VIDEO | Craft Room Tour 2022

Hello there, today I have a craft room tour to share with you and I thought what better time than to share it on the 1st January 2022! Up until a few years ago (2019 to be exact), I used to share craft room tours annually. The last few years got a bit chaotic but I am finally back sharing one today. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

So to start off with, I need to mention that not everything craft-wise is in here that I own and use. Although I love the space and am very grateful for it, I cannot fit everything in here. In my bedroom I have extra cardstock (the boxes fit underneath my wardrobe so out of sight!), as well as my Cricut Maker and Easy Press. I also have a cupboard in my hallway that holds seasonal stamps and dies, photo props, the cards that I make, Copic refills and various older bits and bobs. Having said that, I still have managed to fit a lot in my room. 


Here is the video showing the tour:

My room is about 2.7 meters x just under 2 meters. On one side of the room are my desks. These are large deep desks that I purchased from Storage4Crafts.co.uk (no longer sold). One is for my main crafting desk and the other is my computer desk. 

On the wall beside my computer desk are Ikea MOSLANDA Picture Ledges. On the top shelf are pens that I like stored vertically and also my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens (I think the company advises you to store them horizontally but I have not had a problem so far). On the other two shelves are my liquid watercolours and Distress Reinkers. 

Underneath the shelves is an Ikea SVENSAS Memo Board and on there I write my craft assignments (with a whiteboard marker) and tick them off as I go. I find this very helpful to keep track of my DT work. On the desk, I have some acrylic drawers and in these I hold pens, stickers for my planner and washi tape. Next to my computer is my Blue Yeti Microphone for voiceovers and my Ikea FORSA Lamp that I use as extra light when filming (you can see the accessories that I use for filming here). 

Underneath the desk are Ikea HELMER drawers. These hold so much stuff! Stationery, pens, storage accessories, colouring mediums, colouring pencils, paints, paper - so much!

Above my main crafting desk are two shelves with decorative items on, as well as my paint brushes. Above these on the wall is my Manfrotto Adjustable Arm camera mount. My camcorder fits on the end and that is how I film my videos from above. 

On my main crafting desk is a shelf that I have attached Ikea CAPITA Legs to. This is so that I have just that little bit of extra space on the desk. On the shelf are my Copic Markers, more acrylic drawers with pens and my most used ink pads in. Underneath are little bowls that I use for various different things - I have my absorber cloths in one and hold die cuts and things in another. 

To the right of the shelf is a spinning carousel that holds loads of tools. It holds adhesives, scissors, cutting tools, rulers, brayers, palette knives, erasers, extra nibs for markers - so much! 

Underneath the desk are two Ikea ALEX Drawer Units. The one on the left holds acrylic blocks and stamping tools, ink blending tools, alcohol inks and foil. The one on the right holds essential tools that I use daily like my embossing bag, memo and Post-It tape. It also holds adhesives, Distress Inks (mini ones) and more blending tools, cards and envelopes and mixed media supplies. 

Next up is my Ikea RASKOG and RASHULT Carts. The RASULT is a new addition last year and is a work in progress cart. It holds product that I need to use for upcoming assignments (DT work) and also cards that I have made and still need to write blog posts for. The bottom shelf usually holds products that I have used and still need to put away. 

The RASKOG holds my MISTIs (in cases that Ruth's Reusables kindly made for me) on the top shelf along with my swatch binders. Underneath the Ikea HOGSMA Chopping Board (top) are extra backgrounds, more MISTI's, punch board and gel press. The next shelf holds colour pencils and Arteza markers. The bottom shelf holds my Gemini Junior (with a cover over) and Cricut Joy. Underneath the HOGSMA are Cricut items. 

Above the carts on the wall is my Ikea SKADIS Pegboard. On it I have shelves with more product. On these shelves I store embossing paste, Tonic Nuvo Drops, Distress Paint, Tonic Nuvo Glacier Paste and Mousse. 

On the other wall opposite my desks is my Hemnes Bookcase with Doors (no longer sold, sadly). On top the top of the unit are Ikea KVARNVIK Boxes. The round ones hold wood mounted stamps, the other two hold older Clearly Besotted stamps and Hero Arts Bold Prints (background stamps). 

All of the dividers in my room are made by cutting down Lawn Fawn Mermaid Cardstock, rounding the corners with a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper and then laminating them. I use 125 micron laminating pouches (sorry the ones I have are no longer sold). Once laminated I round the corners again, this time with scissors and then label them with my label maker

In the cupboard are all of my stamps. The larger sets are in more Ikea boxes. The 'normal' sized stamps are in acrylic boxes. Big thanks to Sharon for finding a replacement for my old discontinued Muji ones! I also have background stamps and embossing folders in InterDesign containers. I then have my cardstock in magazine files, dies in Crafter's Companion Binder Boxes, and paper in more InterDesign containers. I also store my manual die cutting machines and plates in here. 

Next to that are two Best Craft Organizer Cart Cabinets (without the castors). These hold my ink pads, embossing powders, ribbon, twine, stickers and embellishments. Above that are binders with my stencils in and my little pin flag, as well as 12" x 12" cardstock. 

After filming this video, I received some questions on YouTube so I have filmed an extra one addressing the questions:

I definitely love organisation. I have to be honest and say that I haven't kept up with it as much over the last two years but I am hoping to get back in to it in 2022 (I have lost of swatches to catch up on!). Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really do appreciate it. Have a wonderful day!

  1. Such a beautifully organised craft space. I am always in awe at how you manage to find just the right container for the item and the space. I will look into those muji containers but basically I now want to redesign my whole room! I love how you store your inks and I definitely need a better option for mine. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us xx
