Here are some photos of my scrap room. The room is 12' by 28'. There are windows front and back and I have two standing floor lamps and a light over my table. I use lots of carts to organize my items; I have 18 black carts and 4 white ones with metal drawers in this room. I scrap by color and so that is how I have organized most of my things. I do have paper stored by company if I have a lot, and some by themes.

Carts which store colors (ribbon, rhinestones, buttons, etc.). Dress form which holds jewelry I've made and some I've gotten in trades.

My computer and wall calendar from Pottery Barn. I love that calendar; it's a whiteboard and my entire scrapping life is on there!! I change it monthly and write in all my design team work so I can see it at a glance.

The white carts hold my Thickers, cooking papers and embellies and Hobby Lobby products.

I got 4 pieces of this white furniture with the colorful baskets this year. I love the bright colors!! This piece stores blank cards, with misc. letter stickers and rub-ons in the boxes on top.

My paint, ink and stamping area. I like to keep my things in "zones" or areas so I can find things quickly. The inks are sorted by color, each to their own drawer. The stamps are sorted alphabetically, by theme.

The sewing area. The white furniture holds material. The wall hanging is a tribute to my mother, who loved to sew.

View of 1/2 the room. I love my work table (from Ikea). In fact, I have another one in my die cutting room!!

CC challenge

There is a new challenge up on the Creative Cookbooking blog. Use a new or old scrapbooking trend on a layout about your favorite summer food. I used inking, distressing, triple matting and mixed alphabets for my older trends.
I made a banner for the new trend.

design team work

This is a page I did for Create It Green. We got a sketch to use this month. The squares in my layout are punched from old magazines and cards.

The layout above is for Moments Recorded. It was a color challenge, based on an advertisement.

Links to both sites are on the sidebar.

The Everyday Scrapper blog hop!

We are having a blog hop from May 1 - May 8 on The Everyday Scrapper. I am on the forum team there.
One day a week, I post a question of the day, scrapbook question of the day, a tutorial and something for daily inspiration.

Today I would like to ask this scrapbook question:
"What colors do you find yourself scrapping the most? Is it pastels? Brights? Vintage colors like browns and sepia?"

I love using bright colors! Blue and orange are one of my favorite combos!!
Think about what color type you like the most and scrap away!!
This is one of my most recent pages - using ATD papers and stickers.
