My Scrap Space - April 21st

Be sure to visit the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of every month for our design teams inspirational post in which by leaving a comment you will be entered into a drawing to win 3 FREE sets of your choice from the online store. Now on to this weeks inspiration!   

This week we get to share our spaces!!  How fun is that!!  I was going to clean it up, but then decided it normally looks like this, so I will just share it as is!  Remember, you were warned.  ;)

I want to say that I am lucky to have the entire basement for my own, so I have lots of handmade storage units that my hubby has made for me.  I work best in a mess, so my crafty space normally has piles here and there. :)


This is my desk where I color and work.  My Cricut is to the right of my desk, so that it is quick and easy to get to.  My hubby made my ink racks, so that I can spin them to find the perfect color.  




This is one of two counter pieces that my hubby made for me out of bathroom vanity's.  I can stand and work, my scan-n-cut2 sits on here as well as my paper trimmer.  The other one is outside the room, you can see it through the doorway.



This is one of my favorite pieces, this is my ribbon rack that my hubby built for me.  This was I can turn it and find the perfect ribbon.


One of my rubber stamp racks.



My work table

This is the newest addition, these are stamp cubes that hubby built me to hold all (okay, not all) my paper.  I have all my FSJ solid paper across the top, so it is easy to grab the color I am looking for.  


This was also added when we moved to this house to hold all my clear and rubber stamps.  I store them in sleeves in the clear fridge binz.  This make it very easy to grab what I'm looking for.  You can see another rubber stamp rack in the left corner.


This is my embellishment cart.  I purchased this at Harbor Freight (they have a single sided here and a double sided here) and it holds all those little embellishments, so that I can find them when I need them.

Thanks for stopping in to see where I work,
