My Craft Room

Idag tänkte jag lägga upp ett inlägg som kanske är lite tråkigt att kolla igenom för en del, men det är många som har efterfrågat ett inlägg hur det ser ut på mitt kontor. Så här kommer en bildkavalkad från mitt rum.


I have had a few request about showing what my craft room looks like and I have finally taken the time to photograph the room. So here is a short "walk through" in my craft room/office.

Here is a view of my room from where I enter the room. In the front you can see my two Råskog carts where I store my Project Life materials and my Art Journaling stuff. 

Next to the carts are my work desk where I stand. In the different boxes under the desk is some materials and tools that I use a lot while crafting.

And to the right of my desk (which is in the center of the room) is a shelf unit where I store some random stuff and my albums.

Here is a closeup of my Project Life Cart:

And here is a closeup of my Art Journal cart:

Here is a photo of the shelf unit (Expedit from IKEA) where I store my albums, some random stuff and things I have an extra copy or two of.

Next to the Expedit unit I have an Alex drawer unit. I use this as my die cutting station:

On the left side of my work desk I have another Expedit unit on top of a drawer unit. Here I store my most used cardstock, Tim Holtz stamps and some other random stuff. I also have a few binders with different inventory solutions so I can easily keep track of the stuff I own. In the blue boxes I store stencils, alphabet stickers and other stickers. I also have some extra albums here that didn't fit in the other shelf.

Inside the top drawers I store all of my chipboard pieces and alphabets:

In the left drawer I store my clearstamps and my thin dies. I use Avery Elle stamp storage pockets to store my stamps. They are sorted in alphabetical order and by company, but I still need to make dividers for them. The dies are stored by theme in plastic CD pockets. I also store my clear blocks in this drawer:

In the bottom left drawer I just store some random stuff that didn't fit anywhere else. I still need to sort through that drawer and do something with it. I didn't take a picture of that since there is nothing to see except a mess of patterned paper scraps mixed with all sort of random stuff that can be found around a house.

In the right middle drawer I store some stamps from gel-a-tin since I didn't want to remove them from their tins and put them in storage pockets. I also store my inks, stamp cleaners and other often used stuff in there. Here is a closeup of the drawer:

The final drawer in this unit is used to store stamp inks and reinkers:

Here is the office part of my room and this is where I spend the most time. Here I have my computer, my printer and all of the office and gaming related stuff that I need for work and for gaming. (I play loads of computer games).

On the right side of my computer is my printer and my Silhouette (yes I do have the first one they released, but it works just fine). In the drawers and cabins underneath is stuff for my computer and all of the office supplies and gaming equipment. (I still haven't had the energy to put the handles on the doors and drawers, but I'll get there eventually).

On the left side of the computer is a spot for my sewing machine. This is also where I take all my card photos.

In the corner is a shelf unit with this spinning wheel in it. I store random embellishments and extra Project Life cards here.

Ok, so lets turn around and face the door where we entered the room. Here you can see my work desk from the other side and here I have two chair where I can sit and work and have friends over. I also covered my desk with paper so I don't ruin the desktop when painting. I'll paint the top of the desk with the same color I have on the floor when I get the time. Here you can see my somewhat temporary Copic Marker storage too.

I store my Copic Markers in old (clean) cat food containers. They are sorted by color.


Closest to the door is an old shelf unit that we had in out living room before. I "stole" it and now I use it to store some random items and extra materials that I have. I also have two DVD units next to it where I store all of my cling mounted stamps (except the Tim Holz ones which I store in the large Expedite shelf).

In the bottom cabin I store extra journals, all of my papers, materials for shipping and some extra cardstock.

And finally I have a small shelf next to my door where I store my stickles, liquid pearls and Distress Markers and other colored pens. (Yes I did spell liquid wrong on the photo, no idea where that e came from. Sometimes my hands work faster than my brain.)

So that was my craft room and a seriously long post, but I hope you liked it.

  6. Thank you for sharing your ideas for storage and organization. It seems so peaceful and a great setting to be creative.

  7. What a beautiful space. Can you tell me where you got the acrylic paper holder and the name brand that you have on your Ikea Expedit shelf? I figure they are 12x12 and I would love some of them to stack on my new Kallax (took the place of Expedit) shelves.

    1. Glad you like my space :)
      The paper displays are from Display Dynamics and yes they are 12x12. They do have different sizes available as well. Think you can find them on Amazon.
