Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hello Friday! How was your week? As I ready for this week’s Where You Create, I have just watched the news and continue to be in awe of the power of weather. I feel bad grumbling over not so great weather when others are dealing with so much flooding and loss…if you can – help, even if it’s putting forward positive thoughts!

Because the world needs a little less crazy…lets head into Arlene’s well organized scrapbooking space! Those of you who follow us on Instagram may know her as @omaarlene …she is always sharing her #CSMphotopromtps and we LOVE that she plays along!

Hi there! I thought I would share my space. My hubby gave me an early gift and had a picture window installed in our basement, I am thrilled! Lots of natural daylight. Here are a few photos…@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

My husband also made it possible to have my work table be higher so it is a stand-up work table. I love it! I can stand or sit on a stool to work and I can use the space to spread out.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

I have my storage behind me…some pantry cupboards as well as some shelving from Ikea.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

The tall drawers are also from Ikea. @csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbookingIt holds my stamp sets perfectly. (Sadly, it is no longer available)

I store my Cuttlebug plates, embossing folders and dies in this cabinet. I also have stickers and embellishments in some of the binders.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

This tall skinny cabinet was a curbside find by a co-worker, that I scooped! It keeps all my patterned paper kits together (by kit) so that helps me when I am creating. I can just pull one out and KNOW that it will all coordinate.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

Some of my photos live here; somewhat sorted, as well as the cardstock for my grandchildren to create with.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

This is the start of my brand-new storage system from Close to my Heart, I LOVE it! Paper tray, cube for ink cartridges and my markers, so handy.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

My desktop holds lots of items; I try to have it organized for my work flow. @csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbookingThe shelving from Ikea holds my cardstock, albums and idea books.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

My cardstock is sorted by colour family in some Cropper Hopper paper holders.@csmscrapbooker #whereyoucreate #arlenebonsma @omaarlene #creativespace #scrapbooking

Hope you enjoyed looking my creation space and are inspired.
