My New Crafting Studio… The BIG Reveal! – Stampin’ Up!

Hello Everyone!  I am SO EXCITED about my post today!  It is finally finished! My craft studio remodel is complete and I’m ready for the big reveal!  I have never before had a dedicated space for my crafting, so I can’t even begin to tell you how psyched I am about this space!

The room started out as a guest bedroom that rarely saw any action.  Here it is after the furniture was taken out.

As you can see, it wasn’t anything to write home about, but now look at it in all its wonderful crafting glory!

Look at all that storage and beautiful organization!

I’ve filmed a little virtual tour of the space for you.  I hope you enjoy it!

I would also like to give a big shout out to Brett Haugen at Stamp-n-Storage.  I love, love, love all the fabulous storage units they have designed specifically for all the products from Stampin’ Up!

The Stamp-n-Storage Ribbon Holder fits perfectly on top of my ink pads and punches.  The peg board backing is the perfect storage solution for other miscellaneous tools.

In addition to all the fantastic products I got from Stamp-n-Storage, I would also like to point out a few other details about the room for you.  I often find myself standing as I work on projects.  Typically, this makes my back hurt because I am stooped over my dining room table as I work.  My solution to this problem was to create two different heights for my work surfaces.  One section of my desk is taller for when I need to stand to do a project, and the other section is the perfect height for sitting.

A tall work surface for standing and a lower one for sitting.

As I designed this space, I really wanted to maximize all the storage potential.  Check out how I have even used the space between the two desks to store my larger rotary trimmer!

And here is one last gem for you… I have found the perfect solution to eliminate all those wires cluttering up the space below the desk!

I am in love with my new crafting studio.  So much so, that I find myself lingering in the doorway at night before I go to bed, just to gaze at its glory a little longer!  I can hardly tear myself away, lol!  This room will get so much more use now than it did as a guest room, that’s for sure.

  1. Very inspirational, as I am trying to plan my craft room-looks great and great ideas- thanks for sharing 🙂 I do have one question, how do you store your clear- mounted stamps vertically stacked? Don’t all the pieces pool at the bottom of the cases? Just curious- thanks 🙂

    • I keep all the pieces of rubber that come with the stamps, including the background. When I’m finished with a stamp, I put it back in the background rubber piece. it is an easy way to make sure all my stamps are in the box before I put them away and it keeps them all in place when stored vertically.
