Scrapbook Studio Tour: Papermint (!!)


You are not going to BELIEVE this papercrafting studio! I came across it on Pinterest this morning while drinking my coffee and my jaw dropped. Like, literally. It caused a coffee dribble down my chin and the whole scene wasn’t pretty.

But it was worth it.

. . . Checks watch …. erm … cell phone for the time. Gah! Hurry back, dear reader!


There you are.


What just happened? Can you frickin’ frackin’ BELIEVE that papercrafting studio?!?! Was it a figment of my overactive scrapmagination or does it really exist?

My first thought when I saw it was, “I have died and gone to Heaven.” My spiritual belief has always been that we get to pick our Heaven and, baby, that would be mine!

I usually do pretty quick posts with my, like, top 3 things I like about a scrapbooking or crafting space but this obviously deserves more. So here we go . . .

What I love (I mean, other than every. single. thing.):

– Oh, all that white cabinetry! Such a dream of mine, to have the whole room look cohesive and clean.

– Classy, pretty accents like the light fixture, computer chair, fresh flowers, and pretty bins and boxes.

– Supplies arranged in rainbow order {ROYGBIV}; it makes my everlovin’ organizational heart go pitter patter.

– All things of one type together: paints, flowers, ink, cardstock, ribbon, punches, etc. When she needs a specific thing, I bet she finds it in 1.2 seconds flat.

– Awesome iMac. Awesome big TV. I would never, EVER, leave that room. Srsly. “Dahling! Won’t you be a dear and bring mama some tea and crackers so I can continue with my scrapbook mojo? Thanks, Luv!”

– Color scheme of white, silver, and apple green with touches of turquoise, black, and pink. Swoon.

– All that wide white countertop. Wowee. You can spread out your Project Life or invite friends to scrap or help your kids with a big school project. Plenty a’ room.

The only slightly negative thing I can say is this: She doesn’t have enough washi tape.

And I do not feel sorry for her. {Hee. Sorry, Evil Erika comes out when I’m sooper dooper jealous!}

Okay, your turn! What do you think of this uh-MAY-zing papercrafting studio?

Scrapbook Room Tour: Nurse Lisa from YouTube

“Scrapbooking Room Tour 2015” by Nurse Lisa on YouTube:

My favorites from this room:

– The classy look of it; she used the peacock rugs as her inspiration colors and decorated the room beautifully to coordinate with them. I love all the art and it’s a unique thing to see in a scrapbook room.

– Major envy over her big Expedit/Kallax shelving from Ikea. Those drawers are stinkin’ awesome!

– She either hasn’t been scrapbooking (aka supply hoarding) for very long or she’s very good at using and/or editing her supplies. I was amazed at the tidy amount of paper and embellishments.

The only thing I would change is I’d switch the 2 prints above the window. It makes me sad that the birdies aren’t facing each other. But, hey, that’s a matter of taste.

Thanks for sharing your room with the interwebs, Lisa!

Dear reader, what do you like best about Lisa’s room?

Scrapbook Room Makeover: Angela with “Heartedly Handcrafted”

Here is Angela’s scrapbook room makeover post and below is a video. ¬†She did this all for under $100 – but obviously tons of time!


What a change, huh?!?

I’m not a lacy girl myself but I sure do love this room and all the changes she made. It’s hard to believe such a drastic difference cost her so little money. She was already pretty organized with those white shelves but even more so after the makeover.

I also really enjoyed that she condensed it down into a 4-minute video, with text to guide us and pretty music playing. Great job, Angela!
