i-Space: Aphra Bolyer

Hi there Imaginisce fans!  Welcome to my scraproom.  Before I show you around, let me just say that my scrapbook space has evolved many MANY times over the last several years.  Let me show you where I started.


My husband converted our half-bath (60" x 48").  Tiny, hun?  Oh, but it was cute.  And it had shelves all the way up to the 10' ceiling.  What it lacked, though, was good light and electrical outlets.  So, I moved in to the corner of my husband's office.



More shelves all the way up to the ceiling and lots of plastic!  Loved it again.  Then, I found a discount cabinet from Pottery Barn and decided to take over the whole room and make it pretty.  I love it, and I am so thankful to my sweet husband for sharing.  LOL!  Here's the view from the door. 


This is my computer desk and work table.  I plan to add a skirt to the table (as soon as I enlist the help of someone who can actually sew) to add a little more color to the space and hide the trash can and rolling cart.


Here's a close up of my Making Memories carousel.  LOVE this.  It holds a ton of pencils, pens, and scissors. 


Ok, this might be my favorite area -- two Making Memories shelves and a giant pic of my kiddos over my Cricut shelves.  The baskets on the shelves hold my embossing folders, printer supplies, Imaginisce tools, etc.


This basket contains all my Imaginisce tools and accessories.  The top tray contains my i-Rock and the bling compacts.  Underneath it are three plastic bead boxes containing more bling, brad daddies, and glue sticks.




I use my Clip It Up to hold various 3D embelllishments and my ridiculous stash of Thickers.  I still have the first pack that I bought.  I just can't get rid of them.  Good thing the Clip It Up has so much space!


And here's the Pottery Barn cabinet that started it all.  It was designed for a child's bedroom, but the color got me.  And it holds a TON of stuff.


In the bottom left cabinet, I keep my Cricut cartridges in Art Bin boxes.  Each box holds 16 cartridges and the books and overlays.  Awesome storage find!

 


Here's my vertical paper holders.  I keep my paper stored by manufacturer in alphabetical order.  I put like lines together in 12 x 12 plastic ziplock bags.  Then, it's very easy to grab a bag to take over to my table.


In the bottom center cabinet, I store metal embellishments, extra adhesive, and My Mind's Eye embellishments.  These are some of the same plastic bins and buckets that I started with.  Love that they are so versatile!


The bottom right cabinet holds my pain and stamps on the top shelf.  I'm not a big stamper, so that is plenty of room.  The bottm shelf is full of 12 x 12 Iris boxes.  I store a variety of embellishments in these. 


The top shelves of the cabinet are full of these canvas bins and totes that my husband found at Office Depot on clearance.  They hold pictures, assorted tools, extra ribbon, and card making supplies.



Thanks for stopping by today.  And I hope you enjoyed the tour of my space.  I think it's safe to say that there will be no more remodeling or reorganizing.  At least not any time soon!

Great space and what a wonderful cabinet. You gave me some ideas on paper storage. Love the idea of collections in large baggies. That would make things a whole lot easier to find them. Thanks for sharing

You weren't kidding, you really do have a dream room!! It is beautiful Aphra!! Now, I want to come down and play. :) And yes, I want one of those Clip it ups. I need it for all of my embellies and thickers that I just can't find a home for.
