In Our Sofa- Welcome to My Scrapbook Room Tour!

Hello!! Today is my turn at Maja Design blog to share my creative space..."In Our Sofa".  My scrapbook room is my paradise, I moved to NC eight months ago and I took the smallest room of our apartment that is near to a big tree full of beautiful birds like Cardinals and other species that are singing all day. For that reason my desk is near to the window and I can see and listen all these beautiful creatures meanwhile I was creating my pages, it is like a paradise for me...priceless!  My scrapbook room is not gorgeous or fancy, it's a 10 x 10 room that is very practical and functional for me.
Let's get started with the tour...
Here's how it looks from the door. To the left you see my work area(desk), the double doors in the back is the closet.  In the right side you see my sewing machine and "Juanita" that is how I called my dress form, lol!

Up front you'll see my complete work area, in the left you see my photo printer and under it a drawer where I keep my cardstocks and papers.  I will tell you a secret...how do you think I paid for this desk?  I paid twenty five dollars for it in a Goodwill Stores....awesome!!  I left most of my scrapbooking furniture in Puerto Rico and I only brought a few things. I had to buy almost everything again so I was looking for good bargains.  So I was happy with this buy.  In the bottom right is my baby boy "Sponky" he is my 14 years old dog...always besides me.

In these small drawers I keep my Liquid pears, Stickers, Chalk Inks, Gelato, etc...
In the top of my desk, I have plastic jars with flowers, ribbons, laces, pearls and embellishments. I also have some of my work and some gifts like the beautiful cards that my friends Ingrid Gooyer and Maritza Valdez sent me for my birthday.  The things I used the most you see them on the shelf.


Behind the small door you will find my stencils, doily papers, stamps, mesh tape...

I bought this rolling organizer in clearance at Michael's and I love it very functional. It's perfect for my mists, paints and mediums.

My hubby put hook under my desk and I can hang my heat tool, glue dispenser  in this way...very practical!

When you open the double doors that is what you find.  I design for different companies and here is where I keep all their products in plastic organizers and in white boxes. Each company has their own plastic box and I organizer by collection, embellishments, etc... I also keep my Cricut machine and my Cuttlebug.

This is the view from the window.  I bought this industrial sewing machine before I started to study Fashion Designer twenty seven years ago.  The big furniture was a gift from my mom and I brought it from Puerto Rico.
This is the place when I keep my sewing notions, laces, embellishments, tools, die cuts, punches, etc..


One drawer for my threads and the other for my punches.  I also keep my laces and embellishments in plastic boxes.

I keep my die cuts and embossing folders in these plastic containers from Dollar Tree.  I also recycle the transparent plastic containers from fruits to keep embellishments, flowers, etc... it is easy to see the things in this way.

In this corner you will find flowers, buttons, pearls and more flowers...

These two basket are full only of Prima flowers and embellishments...

In the top drawers...you will find my metal embellishments and in the second drawer my chipboard.
Another drawer for flowers, other drawer for my buttons that I keep them by colors.


Here are my  stamps and alpha dies.

Well like you see I have everything organized without expense a fortune.  I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook room tour...Thanks for your visit!! :)
