My Not-So-Big Scrap Area!

I have been scrapbooking for less than 2 years so, I do not have much (I am still in my hoarding stage). I share my scrap space with our bedroom. The photos that I am sharing are the newer version of my scrap space. My old space are full of boxes, using my daughter’s 2ft study table and chair.

The cabinet and the table I am using was our closet area. I decided to transform this into my scrap space because the  table size is just perfect and the mirror gave an illusion of making the room look big, also, I can look at myself all the time LOL. The drawers are huge enough to store my flower collection, my punches, chipboard and altered items.






I store my papers on 2 huge boxes. The first huge box has all my patterned papers organized by manufacturer with labels. I decided to put them in a ziplock plastic to avoid dust and folds. The 2nd huge box contains scrapbook kits from my subscriptions to kit clubs and my other design team. I give this kits a maximum of 3months before I purge them with my other stash.


I used to put my finished layouts directly to the albums but currently, I do not have the space to accommodate more. So for the meantime, I also use a huge box for all my scrapbook pages.


Hopefully by next year, after we transfer to our new house, I will be able to share with you a better looking scrap space.

My scrap space is in our bedroom too. I felt like I didnt spend much time in there (other than sleeping) before moving my scrap space in there. Now I enjoy the room. I love the idea of the mirror behind your desk.

You have lots of stuff for only 2yrs! But your area looks very similar to mine in terms of how I store. I just have a small wall with a dresser & small table. whatever works!

I use boxes to store my finished layouts, too. It's my goal to transfer them by the end of the year to albums, though.

Thanks for sharing your fun space!
