Evidence of My Prima Addiction

Ok, here is my stamp/craft space. The desk/hutch was DH’s when he was little – it is one of those brown cargo furniture pieces. When we got it I painted it cream and then distressed it with a taupe-ish brown. I love it!! It hold soooo much stuff, and you can’t possibly hurt that big old hunk of furniture!

Anyway, on the shelves are most of my embellies – brads, clips, and other goodies are in the drawer-thingy i got in the tools section at Wal-Mart (way cheap, like $7 !!), SU eyelets and brads are separated in the other 3 drawer stack on a different shelf. That also hold chipboard letters. The Primas take up 3 whole shelves, obviously :). Also on the tops shelves are some Prima ribbon stax (clearance @ Target – woohoo!), Ikea jars with polka dot ribbon the jacksonbelle made me buy (j/k Lindsey – you know I am an addict!), water glasses with various ribbons, and somewhere up there is a jar (with primas on top!) that has the yummy velvet ribbons.  On the desk part itself are my Cricut and Wishblade.

The small dresser under the tv (gift from DH) holds adhesives and extra cardstock. The brown box on legs holds hanging files, which is where all of my SU cardstock is. On the floor next to it is a plastic box that has hanging files for other cardstock. The green tall cabinet thing has my SU catalogs, minis, SSs, and old Creating Keepsakes mags. My Cuttlebug is on there, and all of my craft books are in the bottom.


In the closet are are the two Ikea dressers that hold all of my stamps, my Xyron machines, and various odds and ends. Next to my ink pads is my 12×12 cardstock, printed cardstock (Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, etc), and printed paper (like specialty vellums, etc). On the wall hangs horizontal paper holders for my SU neutrals that I use alot. On the old bookshelves (you know, the ones you’ve had forever that move from apt. to apt. to house and then from room to room depending on who needs them?? well, that’s these. they are sturdy little buggers!) are my ink spots, pens, markers, cutting tools, (all in the drawers), boxes with envies in SU neutrals, more ribbon, just a huge pile of stuff!! in the white plastic drawer set are things like punches, 2 drawers of ribbon, stamp cleaners, and empty albums waiting to become gifts.

Not pictured but also in the room is an antique wardrobe that I hung plastic shelves in. It has my Carl and Fiskars cutters, alphabet & background stamps, extra notepads, SU wheels, my notebook with the sketch challenges, color combos, and CCRAK list, and other extra stuff that might be needed but doesn’t have a home (like the powder pals/trays) but I use often so I need to get to quickly.

When I get to stamping or doing scrapbook pages, I pull out the card table so I have more space. This room is also our guest bedroom, and the elliptical machine is in there. So I can’t completely take it over!

Thanks for looking at my room!!

  1. I love your stamp space. So pretty and relaxing! It reminds me a lot of my own. I also like your blog and will check back often to see what you’ve been up to. And you have Office video clips on your blog–that automatically puts it in my favorites!

    Can I put a link to your blog on mine? I’ve just started my list of favorites–let me know. And come chack out my blog if you get a chance.

  2. Very nice stamp space. I love your desk!!!

  3. Very nice! Saw your link from SCS site (s/talker link). I think you are my hero…I can’t seem to know where to put all of my “schtuff” so you have inspired me to work on a “room”.


  4. Sooo cute!! Love your stamp space. And I must say, the destressing of the furniture looks very nice!
