Come Peek in to my Scrapbook Space

I say "come take a peek into my scrapbook space" because I don't have a scrapbook room, yet. For right now I use a corner of our master bedroom as my scrapbooking space. Most of the room is quite a disaster. Let's be honest, I just need a room. When we do finish the basement in our home, a scrapbooking space for me is the #1 item on the list. I think my husband will agree (he may get a little tired of our bed being covered in patterned paper, embellishments, and adhesive when he gets home from work everyday. Truly, the man is a saint for putting up with me and my scrapbooking shenanigans.

Recently, I decided that even though my scrapbooking space isn't what I want it to be right now I want to make the best of the situation I am in. I had my husband build me a shelf out of crown moulding that was left over from my framed photo canvas. I'm so grateful to have a husband that helps me make all my crazy ideas into reality. He did an amazing job with this shelf, it fits perfectly and is exactly what I wanted.

 I LOVE so many things that are on this shelf. My favorite thing is the sign hanging on the clipboard. I got this at the Snap Conference. Heidi Swapp generously made each conference attendee a sign with her own handwriting and the Minc Machine. I immediately fell in love with mine. I was blown away that she made hundreds of these, each done with her own handwriting. She is an amazing person! I knew I wanted it near my desk so I could see it often. I thought the gold clipboard by Pebbles and Jen Hadfield was the perfect thing to frame my sign. I also love my marquee ampersand from Heidi Swapp. (Heidi Swapp - Marquee Love Collection - Marquee Kit - Ampersand ).

When my husband built the shelf I wanted to add a special piece of artwork that had a photo of all three of my kiddos. I found the Jillibean Soup - Mix the Media Collection - Multipurpose Hanger - Mini. I knew it would hang perfectly on my gold chicken wire frame. (I have a full tutorial on how I created this project on the Weekly Scrapper blog.)

These few things I've (okay, we've done, I have to include my hubby in this one) to make my space a little bit brighter until I can make the move to my permanent scrapbooking space make me happy!

  1. Such a cute little grouping to brighten your space! I can totally associate with longing for a scrapbook room. For 10+ years I invaded and took over the family dining room and everyone who came to the front door could see my piles. Crossing my fingers that dream becomes a reality for you someday soon! Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. I hope so too Mendi! Thank you for your sweet comments! <3
