SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER! We have a long weekend ahead of us – YAHOO! We all grew up with our parents yelling at us to get outside in the summer. I did the same to my son when he chose Gameboy over gorgeous summer weather! Then along comes Jomelle Gomez with a craft room share; and honestly…you could lock me up in there and throw away the key…NEVER let me out! You are in for a treat! Hi! My name is Jomelle and this is my craft room.   I can just stay here all day long playing with all my planner goodies. I fell in love with the EZ View desk from The Original Scrapbox. It displays some of my favorite embellishments. I also wanted to display my planner collection. I love to decorate my desk and showcase the current collection that I am working on for my DT projects.…

Happy Friday! Kim here with another peek into a lovely scrapbooking room or “OASIS” as Natalie Dill calls here room. Before we reveal her space…can you believe we are in the middle of June already!? Are your kiddos getting excited for summer vacation? Are you? Count down is on! Let’s get into Natalie’s oasis…it’s gorgeous and a treat for our eyes! Hi Kim! I just wanted to shoot you a few photos of my craft space in a rare state of cleanliness. I love my little scrapbooking oasis decorated in a girly style with peach walls, white and turquoise accents. Thanks so much! Natalie Dill A big thank you to Natalie for letting us into this awesome room! Keep sending along your photos! We have more spaces to share and of course we want yours too! You can see our past, featured scrapbooking spaces anytime on our blog. They live…

Hey Everyone! Kim here with another wonderful, creative space to share that will have you thinking about an enchanted place most of us know and love; A Hundred Acre Wood. I just love Carilyn’s photos and the story behind her themed crafting space, I’m sure you will love it too! Good afternoon Kim, I have contemplated this day for quite a while, I am so excited to share with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine; my submission for “Where I Create” – it is one of my favourites! The challenge I faced with creating my Craft studio, is that I enjoy a wide variety of crafts; from scrapbooking to knitting, quilting and card-making…just to name a few. This space had to fulfill that wide range of hobbies. Secondly, the space is in my basement, with a small window, so I wanted to have it light and bright.  The concept evolved into wanting this…

WHERE YOU CREATE is heading to Oakville, Ontario to check out Connie Evans’ wonderful, bright scrapbooking space! We know you will just LOVE it! Multi-Tasking Family Room Hi Kim, This is the Family room in our house which we turned into my Scrapbook Room. It is also referred to as the Craft Room, the Cat Cave and the Girl Cave.  Thankfully we have a teenage son who has as much computer gear as I have paper so he uses the Rec Room in the basement. We have moved five times since my hobby started so we’ve designed many scrapbook rooms.  When looking for a house it must have craft room space.  This room is about 17’ x 10’.  There is a lounging area that takes up just over a third of the room just in case my husband or son would like to hang out with me while I’m crafting…

March, in like a lion, out like a…. LION???? I don’t remember being prepared for this scenario in grade school! Is anyone else, just “pooped” with winter? On this Good Friday, let’s think of REbirth, REnewal, REcharge, REst and REjoice! Let’s all happily move onto April and all things SPRING! Move along March…we’RE done with you! That’s a whole lot of “RE’s”!! [Definition of re- in English: re- PREFIX  /  1-once more; afresh; anew] Which leads us to this wonderful picture that Andrea Bjork, from Jamestown, NY, sent to us, sharing where she cREates! A room for Bible journaling seems perfect for this Easter weekend! We converted a small bedroom into my office and it has become quite a haven for me!  It is where I do all of my Bible Journaling. Submit your photos! We continue to always be looking for your submissions! Don’t be shy; send them along! Have you…

Welcome to another WHERE YOU CREATE post. If you are a fan of Tim Holtz, Ranger or Sizzix I know you will love the craft space we are about to share. Even if your creative style differs, we are confident you too will swoon over Nicole Wright’s scrapbooking room. Her craft room is not big…but WOWSERS, it packs a punch! In Nicole’s Words I have a very small but mighty craft space. This 8×12 room is designed to maximize space and functionality with storage on walls.  I create on an 80+ year old oak desk belonging to my husband’s grandfather. Everything is designed around this vintage centrepiece. Wire baskets hold my stamps and apple crate boxes house my extensive Sizzix library.  IKEA wire shelves are perfect for all my Ranger inky things. Glass jars are full of seasonal embellishments, twine and paper dolls. Floating shelves show off my favorite pieces I…

Creative spaces and the 1st of September! Hope everyone is gearing up for a wonderful long week-end, it’s like the last hoorah before we get back into routine again. My son is no longer in school, but I must admit September routines are like resolutions in January…the are deeply engrained! I look forward to spending more time in my creative space as the weather cools. We’ll keep our intro short today as Alyson Mayo has a great photo share for us…here we go! Let’s take a peek… I have been told several times that I have a very interesting (and organized) creative space. I actually deal with diagnosed OCD and it manifests itself in the form of perfectionism so I can’t stand disorganization. I also love the colour turquoise so that was a huge factor when choosing elements for my space.I am fortunate to have a large room in my…

Do you want to know something? It may sound crazy…this will be the LAST Where You Create share before the kids go back to school! Where the heck did summer go? Hoping yours has been as awesome as mine, though I have worked lots, my family managed time for holidays and fun. We must, summers can be short in Alberta, Canada. That being said, I refer to “summer” as the school holidays…we still have lots of time for wonderful weather, be sure to get out and enjoy it! …BUT! While we continue to have lovely day light…get your camera out and snap a few shots of your creative spaces and fill up my email with your WYC submissions! This week we are heading south to Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA! My name is Anita Fordyce and I live in Hanover, PA, which is near Gettysburg.  I have been scrapbooking for about 20…

We are officially one month into summer! Many of you will have taken holidays already, some will be packing up to go and others may be enjoying a “stay-cation”. Do you include creative time with your holiday time? Do your kids join you in your craft room while they are home from school or is it an off limit “mom zone”? So, today’s craft room share is really unique! I am really thrilled that Linda Kuehl shared her space…it proves that you can eke out a perfect creative space when you set your mind to it! Check this out! I have a 3-car garage.  A double space and a single space.  I have partitioned the single space off and converted into my “Art Studio”.  I hung curtains from the ceiling all the way to the floor to keep out dust, etc.   I have an infra-red heater for the winter and…

Well here we are! The last Where You Create in June! I hope once everyone gets into summer mode…a few more of you will snap some photos and share a bit about your creative spaces! Today we’ll be checking out Kathy Fast’s creative space…I know you’ll LOVE it! Hi there!  I would really like to share my new space with you and other creative people! I was struggling with my crafting space for several years.  My husband had built me a wonderful “studio” desk but I outgrew it once my crafting migrated from personal scrapbooking to creating hand-painted signs.  I found myself taking over the dining room table & kitchen island! My husband graciously agreed that I needed a proper space of my own (or maybe he just got tired of my stuff taking over every room of the house!).  I now have an absolutely beautiful 12’ x 12’ cabin just for my…
