So here are a few more photos of my scrapbook room. I store my twine in these ceramic and milkglass dishes. It looks pretty and it's easy to get, use, and throw back in there. I just got a ton of new vintage seam binding ribbon off ebay as you can see. I also have a stash of vintage wallpaper border rolls displayed in the glass vase. I am obsessed with wallpaper.
This is how I organize all my little vintage bits and bobbles. I'm not really a fan of plastic storage, but sometimes it just works the best and you just gotta go with it. I have the little openings kind of sorted by color or type. I have four of these stacked on the floating shelves. And most of this delicious stuff came from ebay.
This is another one of those not so pretty but pretty functional plastic things. Brads and buttons are my fave embellishment and I wanted all the brads together, standing, not falling all over the place, where I could quickly see what I might like to use.
This is something I am kind of excited to show you. These are the containers I had to make a quick dash into Ikea for last time we were road tripping in Dallas. These are found in the kitchen section and come in three sizes. Two are shown here, the more flat size and then the double thick ones I have shown on the end. So this is how I like to store my buttons, by color. Aren't these the best? They're pretty for clear plastic with the cream top/trim and you can see in through all sides and on the top. And they would go with either a vintage or modern kind of room.
Here's what they look like from the top. And they work so well too with the fold down handles. These are not available online, unfortunately.
This is just kind of a little thing - this is how I store my newest kit (for the record, I don't like the metal thing, that's temp). I like to do it this way because I can pick it up and carry it all over the house like if my family is downstairs. It looks nice too especially since I like to leave it out on my kitchen island sometimes. When I've used it a little and the next kit comes, then it goes into the super big zip lock, on the pants hanger, into my scraproom closet where I can go kit shopping later : )
So this little cabinet came from Ikea. It's called Alex (see below). I used to have all my punches and wood mounted stamps in this until I moved them to the floating shelves. Now this gets the mismatched punches, misc. ephemera, and wallpaper samples. Every craft room needs one of these. I would have more if I had the space.
So this one is pretty self explanatory : ) Alphabet stickers in an old crate. If you look closely you can see some dang old stickers back there that I just can't make myself part with.
This is one thing I really enjoy organizing my stuff in. I bought two of these jewelry organizers for my vintage jewelry and decided to use one in my scraproom instead for all the little stuff I don't want to forget about that I would normally store in my little, metal, cream Ikea filing cabinets (those are called Helmar, see below). It hangs on the end of my bookcase. The black bookcase is where I store all my cardstock and patterned paper in vertical cropper hopper containers, each with a label. Had a pic, now I can't find it, but you get the idea.
These are the pieces I have from Ikea that I really like (images from Ikea):
I have three of these lined up next to each other, tucked under one end of my table. Also available in red. They also sell plastic organizers to go in the drawers. Since I have three of these I have a drawer for each color (little stuff), one for tags, and a few for holidays.
I know how we all love to look at scrapbook spaces so I hope you enjoy the second part of my scrapbook room tour : )
