Scrap your stash

Hello Crafty girls and guys , hope you've all had a wonderful summer ♥
I am here with my monthly blog posting and this time I'm scrapping with my leftovers..
Which can often be a challenge as you mostly want to try out your new stuff!
So what I did was finding lots of leftover diecuts and stuff + some paper cut off's and had no idea what it would turn into when I was done..

as you can see by my card underneath not every little bit made the final cut but much of what I started with I used.. I was in a pink and white mood  and wanted to make something sweet..

And here is my finished project . It was really fun ♥
Hope you got some inspiration to sit down with your leftover bits and pieces..

Hallo Ihr Lieben,
es ist mal wieder an der Zeit für ein Tutorial und deshalb möchte ich, Clarissa euch heute die TAG Box zeigen, sie ist wirklich schnell gemacht und es hat sogar noch eine Kleinigkeit darin Platz.
It´s time for the next tutorial and so I ´ll show you a tag-box on the Whiff of Joy blog. 
cardstock 30,5 x 13 cm
folder (Falzbein)
design-Papier hook-and-loop-fastener (Klettverschluss)
hole punch (Lochzange)
ribbon (Band)
Zuerst falzt ihr die kurze Seite jeweils links und rechts bei 1,5 cm.
Fold the small side left and right at 1,5 cm.
Die lange Seite des Cardstock legt ihr links im Scorpal an und falzt bei 13 und 26 cm.
Fold the large side at 13 cm and 26 cm.
 Jetzt faltet ihr bei 13 cm und liegt diese Seite oben links im Scorpal an und falzt auf jeder Seite bei 2 cm bis zur 1,5 cm Falzlinie.
Now make lay it on like the picture above and make some marks at 2 cm on each side to the 1,5 cm fold line.
 Legt das Papier nun mit der kurzen Seite oben an und markiert euch die Mitte, von dieser aus geht ihr jeweils 2 cm nach links und nach rechts und macht euch ebenfalls wieder eine kleine Markierung. ***  
Make some marks in the middle of your cardstock and go 2 cm to the left and right and mark it again.
Jetzt schneidet ihr links und rechts den 1,5 cm Streifen weg, allerdings nur bis zum zweiten Falz.
Cut of the fold 1,5 cm fold stripe on the left and on the right until to the second fold.
Wenn ihr eine gestanzte Verschluss-Lasche wollt, dann müsst ihr nun mit einer von der Größe passenden Stanze einen Teil wegstanzen.
So sollte eure Tag Box jetzt aussehen.
After cutting your tag box should look like that.
Jetzt faltet ihr den Tag um und schneidet die Ecken an der Markierung ab.  
Now fold your tag and cut out the edges on your marks.
 Nun überzieht ihr euren Tag mit Design-Papier und bringt an den Klebelaschen euer Klebeband an. ***
Bring on your desing paper and the tape on the flaps.
So sollte der Tag nun aussehen.
Your tag should look like that.
Mit eurem Locher macht ihr nun ein Loch in die obere Mitte des Tags und zieht ein Band durch.
Make a punch in the middle of the upper side and pull through your ribbon.
Nur noch den Klettpunkt anbringen oder einen Magnet, fertig.
Bring on the hook-and-loop fastener, it´s done!

Jetzt heißt es nur noch dekorieren!
Now it´s ready for some decorations!

My Crafty Space
Hello everyone!
Today it is time for me to share my craft space with you and I have recently finished my whole room and I have to say I love to spend time in my craft room/office. Most of the furniture and decor in my room are from IKEA, which I think is a great and budget friendly option. They have plenty of furniture and storage solutions that work perfectly for craft supplies. 

Here is a view of my room from where I enter the room. In the front you can see my two Råskog carts where I store my Project Life materials and my Art Journaling stuff. 

Next to the carts are my work desk where I stand. In the different boxes under the desk is some materials and tools that I use a lot while crafting.

And to the right of my desk (which is in the center of the room) is a shelf unit where I store some random stuff and my albums.

Here is a closeup of my Project Life Cart and Art Journal cart:

Here is a photo of the shelf unit (Expedit from IKEA) where I store my albums, some random stuff and things I have an extra copy or two of.

Next to the Expedit unit I have an Alex drawer unit. I use this as my die cutting station:

On the left side of my work desk I have another Expedit unit on top of a drawer unit. Here I store my most used cardstock, Tim Holtz stamps and some other random stuff. I also have a few binders with different inventory solutions so I can easily keep track of the stuff I own. In the blue boxes I store stencils, alphabet stickers and other stickers. I also have some extra albums here that didn't fit in the other shelf. And inside the top drawers I store all of my chipboard pieces and alphabets:

In the left drawer I store my clearstamps and my thin dies. I use Avery Elle stamp storage pockets to store my stamps. They are sorted in alphabetical order and by company, but I still need to make dividers for them. The dies are stored by theme in plastic CD pockets. I also store my clear blocks in this drawer:

In the right middle drawer I store some stamps from gel-a-tin since I didn't want to remove them from their tins and put them in storage pockets. I also store my inks, stamp cleaners and other often used stuff in there. Here is a closeup of the drawer:

The final drawer in this unit is used to store stamp inks and reinkers:

Here is the office part of my room and this is where I spend the most time. Here I have my computer, my printer and all of the office and gaming related stuff that I need for work and for gaming. (I play loads of computer games).

On the right side of my computer is my printer and my Silhouette (yes I do have the first one they released, but it works just fine). In the drawers and cabins underneath is stuff for my computer and all of the office supplies and gaming equipment. (I still haven't had the energy to put the handles on the doors and drawers, but I'll get there eventually).

On the left side of the computer is a spot for my sewing machine. This is also where I take all my card photos.

In the corner is a shelf unit with this spinning wheel in it. I store random embellishments and extra Project Life cards here.

Ok, so lets turn around and face the door where we entered the room. Here you can see my work desk from the other side and here I have two chair where I can sit and work and have friends over. I also covered my desk with paper so I don't ruin the desktop when painting. I'll paint the top of the desk with the same color I have on the floor when I get the time. Here you can see my somewhat temporary Copic Marker storage too.

I store my Copic Markers in old (clean) cat food containers. They are sorted by color.

Closest to the door is an old shelf unit that we had in out living room before. I "stole" it and now I use it to store some random items and extra materials that I have. I also have two DVD units next to it where I store all of my cling mounted stamps (except the Tim Holz ones which I store in the large Expedite shelf).

In the bottom cabin I store extra journals, all of my papers, materials for shipping and some extra cardstock.

And finally I have a small shelf next to my door where I store my stickles, liquid pearls and Distress Markers and other colored pens. (Yes I did spell liquid wrong on the photo, no idea where that e came from. Sometimes my hands work faster than my brain.)

So that was my craft room and a seriously long post, but I hope you liked it. If you want to you can also check out my room tour on YouTube.

So that was all for me today, I hope you liked my room and got some inspiration on how to store your products.
