Why I Scrapbook- WHERE

A long time ago I mastered the art of lap scrapping and travel scrapping. I have my supplies packed and ready to go most of the time! I hate packing and unpacking, but since I am still unsettled and not in a permanent home, it will have to work for now. I still don’t have a designated “scrap area” and certainly hope I will be able to dedicate space in our future home to my crafts someday soon. In the meantime, here is what I have:

Paper Storage
I love this 10 drawer container Ryan bought me last year. It has wheels, which don’t work so well in our current housing situation, but worked wonders on hardwood floors! I have my papers/scraps divided by colors: white, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, and brown/kraft. I 

Paints/Stamps/Inks and Embellishments

The polka dot bag is full of alcohol inks, mists, paint brushes, and such. The black basket contains my frequently used punches, two staplers, and my colored staples. I have paints/inks/stamps in the plastic drawers, and embellishments in need of organization in the wooden drawers on the bottom of the stack. I find it hard to work with this system, but anticipate a change soon! 

Where the magic happens
 Most of my scrapping takes place in front of the TV with my hubby by my side. I use the coffee table and tray tables to scrap on. You can see about 3 different projects in process on the coffee table. I need to clean it off before Ry fusses at me! 

This is usually my view when scrapping. Paper nearby, TV on, cat in the way! 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks like a great cart!
    I remember when I first started scrapping, it all fit in one big plastic tub that I would carry with me from room to room.
    Not so much anymore :)

  2. My cats like to help me scrap, too. They think pawprints and a little cat hair makes everything look better ;)

  3. Haha, poor Eureka! She wants to play too! I love this post, hopefully you'll be getting your own scrap room soon! ;o)

  4. ohhhh so cute, I love your cat always sitting on your LOs !! Lap scrapping, love the concept, not sure it's for me though... I understand your need to be organised (for your material) because you can scrap must faster and efficiently !
