Where You Create

Category

Here we are again, middle of January already! I am starting to notice a little more daylight to each day. I CRAVE longer days! Heck I CRAVE spring! Seems we have been in the throes of winter for an awfully long time; dark, grey cold days! Today I want to share Jamie Monkman’s scrapbooking space! It is wonderfully organized, bright & cheery room! This is just the BURST of color my life needs! This creative space is sure to waken your MOJO! This is my cheerful scrap room.  I have had 3 scrap rooms in the last 15 years, this one being the smallest but my favourite one of them all! The colours teal, lime green and orange are so bright and cheerful, they make me happy.   I bought some shelving from Canadian Tire and put 4 of them side to side and back to back then added…

We are leaving Canada for today’s WHERE YOU CREATE…but not too far! Dawn Grossman is sharing her wonderful space and kind words from Delta Junction, Alaska! I know I could spend hours in her scrap room just enjoying the view! Of course all of her organized shelves & horizontal “real-estate” would allow for lots of creativity! Here’s what Dawn has to say: Hi! I regularly enjoy your Facebook site and blog. Being way up here in Alaska, and a closer neighbor to Canada than the “lower 48”, I have a special affection for my fellow Canadian scrappers. My sweetheart and I recently moved into the quintessential log cabin home and I am blessed to have a cozy and beautiful place in our home to do the scrapping I love. Thought I would share my scrapping “nest” as my grandson calls it. My sweetie and I have facing desks which is…

Welcome to Part 9 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Kim Gowdy is sharing her space. Welcome to my scrap room or as I like to call it…MY HAPPY PLACE! First off I apologize in advance for the sense of disarray! I have been asked to share my “space” at a point where I need to get in and do some spring cleaning. I have recently brought in a few more organizational aids but have not yet got them organized! I promise it will happen! Don’t get me wrong…I am not saying my room is always tidy, it’s just at a crossroad where I need to purge some old “stash”. So…..enter! My craft room started out as my sewing room! I have always had a space to sew or craft, a place where I could start a project…

Welcome to Part 8 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Kelly Klapstein is sharing her space. Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! It’s Kelly here today and it is my pleasure to invite you into my studio for a little tour. I do have a small room that I call my own where I scrapbook and write. I’ll be the first to admit that organizing is not my strength. Ha ha! Most of my studio has pieces and decor that have sentimental value, and I also have special treasures on display that make me happy. The most significant piece of furniture in my studio that really helps me stay organized is my Scrap Box. I love it! I bought it (well, I got it for Christmas) a year ago. Here is a close up of all the containers that I filled…

Welcome to Part 7 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Christy Riopel is sharing her space. Hi all, welcome to my studio. I am very blessed to have such an amazing space. It is basically our bonus room and overlooks the front of our house. Here is the entrance to my space. The door you see is my laundry room. The shelf unit is two units stacked on top of each other. In these drawers, I store all my scrapbooking stash, like stickers and rub-ons and such. On top I store some extra craft supplies and handmade papers. This is a basket of finished cards ready to use. The next wall is filled with shelving and stores a whole bunch of stuff. Baskets filled with tools. Rubber cling and acrylic/polymer stamps are stored on plastic file folders.…

Welcome to Part 6 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Jennifer Hottinger-Sloan is sharing her space. Hello, everyone!  Jennifer here with Tuesday with the Team! It is my week to show you where I create.  I decided to make a video as I thought it would be fun to do…well it was more challenging than I thought!  So you will find two videos, my photo card would not do it in one shot.  The lighting is off too, since it was dark out and I apologize in advance for turning the camera on it side at one point!  I am on a major learning curve – someday I will learn how to take a video! Here’s Part I: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUT3afF1x6Y And here’s Part II: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rD5GSr7xkAY Ed. note:  If you don’t see the videos above, please click here for Part…

Welcome to Part 5 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Jodi Wilton is sharing her space. Hi everyone! Today I am going to give you a glimpse of my small scrapbook room (or closet like room!)  I am fortunate enough to have a space to myself, which wasn’t always the case! As my love for the hobby grew, so did my scrapbook supplies, and what was once an office, slowly turned into a complete scrappy space for me.  The room is very small (7 X 8 feet at the most!) but I have tried to make the most of the space I have. I have literally occupied as much wall space that I can. If I knew that this was going to be a scrapbook space when I moved in, I think I would have painted it a…

Welcome to Part 4 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Connie Nichol is sharing her space. I don’t have a fancy place to scrap but I am grateful to have my own little corner of the house to make a creative mess. When I started to scrapbook about 11 years ago after baby #2 was born, the only available spot in the house was in the basement next to the chest freezer. So, I put a table next to the freezer and worked on that. Of course over time the table filled up with ‘stuff’, so I used it more for storage and did my actual scrapbooking on top of the freezer. I vastly prefer to scrap standing up, especially when I am stamping, so this works perfectly except when somebody wants something from the freezer (“Mom, can…

Welcome to Part 3 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Karen Ellis is sharing her space. Hi everyone! My Studio Space is not located in my home. I work and do all my designing (with the exception of a sketch book I keep in my purse) in my working studio in Cambridge – The Art House Studio. I love my studio!! Lots of windows and all decked out in my favourite colours – it couldn’t make me happier! I am currently at CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) Trade Show in California with fellow Canadian Scrapbooker peeps Cathie and Connie and co-founders Jackie and Katharina so I can’t take “right now” pics for ya BUT… here’s a little video I took of the studio when I moved into is this fall. You can view the video here: The Art…

Welcome to Part 2 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Sue Sykes is sharing her space. Hello everyone!!  Hope you had a wonderful holiday season! I’m excited to share my studio photos with you today.  You see, we recently started renovating my studio.  And by recently, I mean two years ago.  Yep, it was certainly a LONG project, but I finally managed to get it done and put back together (with a few aesthetics touches to finish). The first thing we did was tear down the wall and install French doors.  Like Jayme, I felt too isolated from my family when scrapping.  My studio is off of our rec room downstairs – these French doors open all the way in so when I want to connect with my family, I can open them up! As you can…
