Sanna here today to share some views of my scrap area. Before we moved to this house, I used to have my stash and tools in cardboard boxes piled in various corners of our living room. It was very frustrating because I often did not find what I was looking for. I knew I had that particular embellishment/piece of paper, but just could not find it, and then eventually just left it out of my layout/card.
When we started building our house, one of the things I gave lots and lots of thought, was to create an area I could leave my crafting tools out in the open. I have a space upstairs under a sloped roof, so I didn´t have the wall height for big cabinets. So I chose lots of small units (mainly IKEA, because they are cheap and practical).
I store the things I use all the time on little shelves on the wall and on the table. That way I can just grab them when I need them. Then I have two "Alex" drawers under the table and I used to store my inks in there too. That did not work, since I have quite a few inks, and when you pile them over each other into a drawer, you never find the colour you need there and the! I now store wooden stamps, minibook covers, dies and embellishments in these drawers.
So I bought a bathroom shelf (IKEA again) and have my inks there now. I can just grab the colour I need and use it and place it into the shelf again. Easy!
I have random and very various little boxes on my table where I store tags, chipboard, paint brushes and all kinds of little tools and goodies.
I store my flowers in 3 IKEA glas jars and that is more than plenty for my purposes.
I have now bought a Råskog serving wagon (IKEA kitchen dept.) and find it really practical. I have the heavy media stored on the bottom of the wagon, next are paints and glitter glue´s and on top are all the mists. I like the fact that I can pull the wagon next to my working area when I need it and then push it back on it´s place when I´m finished.
