Challenge: Scrap Your Space

Hello it’s Ali with you today 🙂

First off let me just set the record straight; I know that most of you will look at my space and think I am mad! The truth is I can not abide mess, I believe there is a place for everything and everything is in it’s place…except for purple!! The P colour is banned from my crafty space, sorry to all you Indigo/Violet scrappers…..hence the title. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue!


This is how my crafty stash is sorted ROYGB; patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments – if it has a colour then it gets organised. Actually if it doesn’t have a colour it gets sorted 😉


The trays hold all my tools, paints, dies, metallic embellishments, embossing powders and inks. The paper shelf was made by my DH to fit the space; there is a steel strip on the bottom and all my Stickles have a magnet on the base so they hang upside down,primed and ready to go! The jars on the top hold beads, twine, buttons and washi tape. The chest of drawers hold all my punches…yes I do have a lot..and yet how often do you see a punched border on my layouts???? On my desk is my Cricut Explore, Silhouette and sewing machine. There is another desk at right angles to that where I work.


To the right of the cubes (made by DH) is a wardrobe that holds my stickers, stamps, boxes of flowers and ribbons and some of my albums (the rest are in the loft!) I store all my stamps on laminated sheets in ring binders, except for the new ones and they sit in a basket in one of the cubes. The other trays hold all my embellishments (in colour order!) and my brads, chipboard and wood veneers.


I used a selection of Collectables and stickers from Happy Snaps


Hello Sunshine


and clear stamp sets Calendar and Polaroid from the Captured Moments range as well as Mister Fox


I also used the most delicious stamp of all time ever…Tiny Dots.

So that’s my little slice of heaven, I can’t wait to see yours 🙂

  1. AMAZING space…..slightly too organised for me…but that doesn’t stop me being green with envy….& gotta love a P-less space!!!! I really like the ‘free form’ of your page….sort of a juxtaposition to the clean lines of your room…sigh……upside down stickles:):)!!!!!

  2. Would you like to come and organise my craft room?! Its an utter mess but I am working on it. Love the stamps and detail in your layout.

  3. What a great page – love the Tiny Dots (now on my “must have list”) and all the fun stickers.
    And how I envy you. I would so much like to be organized, and have a place like you. But I am naturally chaotic and after tidying my place and putting everything away it lasts about 10 minutes before chaos takes over again. 🙂

  4. I want to know how all you amazing crafters manage to live in a shop? this is like a slice of heaven … it wouldn’t be so tidy by the time I’d been in it an hour. I think I may even have splattered purple on the wall by mistake 😉
