My Stamp & Scrapbook Room

Pin It I always love to see what other people do with their craft rooms and I bet you do too.  I hope you feel inspired!  This room originally had white walls and yucky green carpet.  I designed the room and my wonderful husband installed the cabinets we purchased from Lowes.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

My Stamp Room



Close up of desk


My tool caddies from IKEA - I wanted easy access to them, but didn't want them on my desk.



My desk drawer full of accents & Ribbon Rounds


Helper #1 (Jack) next to my 12"x12" hanging file folders


These hanging file folder carts are from Joanns.com. I love them because I can roll them close to my desk, push them back, or take them with me to a crop.  Every CTMH color has its own file that is labeled with the color name and a heart stamped next to it in the matching color for easy viewing.  (They are organized by season.)


Helper #2 (Coeuri)


My stamp shelves!  I love being able to see my stamps, but traditional shelving didn't make sense for my wonderful Close to My Heart Acrylix stamps.  My solution - Cap Moulding!  (See next photo)


Side view of cap moulding. This is traditionally used to fit on top of beadboard as a chair rail.  I flipped it upside down and my husband tacked it onto the wall with a brad nailer.


My Closet


I "designed" the closet so my daughter could have all of her craft supplies on the bottom shelf, within reach. Since we've organized all of her things into bins, she actually keeps her side of the room clean!  The paper bins below this shelf hold retired CTMH papers for both her and I to share.


Helper #3 - I love having a space where she can join me! She loves to craft just like her mommy.  This photo also shows the shelves that house my business forms.


I hope you enjoyed the tour of my room!

Angela said...

What a wonderful room you have! I think anyone would love to have one just like it...me included. It's so great that you can share your creativity with your daughter!

Juel said...

Welcome to the blog world Angela! Man your room makes me want to change a few things in my space!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the molding idea!!

Tresa Black said...

I would kill for those cabinets. Gorgeous! Thanks for showing all the details, great tour!

Brett and Micah said...

Love your room! The space under your cabinets w/ the little drawers and paper trays...did that come as part of your cabinet set? I love that!!!! And I love the space savers from IKEA...now I wish my house was much bigger!

Juel said...

Are your carts the ones that are from Cropper Hopper? The heavy duty ones?

Amy Callaway said...

Great room! I love the beautiful cabinets and wall color. Your daughter is a cutie!

Crystal Pledger said...

Using the cap molding to hold your stamps is a fantastic idea. I know mine would get more use if I could just glance over and see what I had. If I ever get a scrap room of my own I will have to remember that.

Janelle said...

Fantastic room! I do have a question - do your rent your husband out? lol. He did a beautiful job!

Tutton's Treasures said...

Thanks everyone! It really is a fun room. The tricky part is keeping it clean because I tend to spread my things out. Here are the answers to your questions:
1) The paper trays and drawers were a separate purchase than the cabinet itself, however they are attached to the cabinet and are made to look like it's all one unit.

2) Juel, yes they are the heavy duty Cropper Hopper rolling carts shown here: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat323863&PRODID=prd28638
You need to purchase the file folders separately from Joanns.

Wow! Gorgeous room! I am in the starting process of getting a craft room (scrapbooking, painting, and sewing) so any ideas are very helpful! Love the idea for the cap mouldings!

Lorrinda said...

Just. Beautiful.
I'm green with envy! Your cabinets are beautiful and well thought out. I love the rolling carts for your paper, out when and where you need them, but tucked away out of sight when you don't. Genious!

Karen Day said...

Seriously - I think you and your hubby should have a scraproom design business! What a wonderful space, and how cool that you worked on it together. Brilliant stamp storage idea! Thanks for joining us at H2H this week :o)

Jessica said...

Great crafting space, and your stamp storage is amazing, I would so steal that idea if I had any wall space left lol!

Adorable helpers..... especially #3. :)

Great Room! I love the idea you have for your daughter. I need to figure out something for my daughter - her stuff is everywhere and she doesn't like to clean up.

Melinda said...

I am going to go look at the hanging files for paper storage. Great idea!

Beautiful space, everything is so nicely organized with plenty of storage. I like how you displayed your CTMH stamps, very creative.

Your room is amazing! I love that you are also teaching your cutie pie has her own space and she keeps it so organized. What a smart girl!

Marina said...

Really beautiful room and that stamp storage, I love love love it!
I do have one question, what kind of bags (or what is it) are you storing the stamps in? Where can I find that?

Angela said...

Thank you again for all of your wonderful comments! Marina, the stamps are all Close to My Heart stamps and they come in special clear rigid envelopes. You can actually buy the envies on my website too: https://angelat.myctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=580&CatalogID=164
