The Pink Elephant - Creative Spaces

Welcome back to another special Behind the Scenes post where Ella's Girls are sharing their Creative Spaces with you!  If you've missed any of the previous posts, you can find them {here}.

Our next stop is with Lori Turner.


Hello everyone! Lori here, sharing a quick peek at my craft space! I have had the last two months off from crafting as I was working at our local accounting firm preparing income taxes and let me tell ya - I had to do a MAJOR overhaul of my room before I even *dreamed* of taking any pics! LOL.... 

I also have one whole room for crafting in - but it's also my business office too. One side is designated crafty area and one side is our business office. Works pretty good! So first off, I have all my Stampin' Up! inks/markers/re-inkers stored in a wonderful wall unit that my Dad builds....he's a genius! And I also store buttons in jars on top of it.  Under my printer area is where I store all of my 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock - both drawers are labelled with Stampin' Up! color file folders.

Then there is my computer/copics/washi tape area  I also have a white 5-drawer unit I purchased from IKEA under my desk that holds adhesives, acrylic blocks/distress inks, heat gun, baby wipes, embossing powders, glue gun, and bottom drawer is my camera and other electronics.

Then, to the right of my desk is my stamp storage cupboards (all Stampin' Up! stamps and boxes of cards are stored in the upper IKEA cabinets) along with some other miscellaneous things (copic refills/etc.) In the lower IKEA shelf there are my wonderfully organized clear stamps (Jennifer McGuire style), my ribbon, embossing folders/dies (Jennifer McGuire style), other embossing/dies from Stampin' Up and in the baskets below, I store my felt, flowers, card kits and extra paper cutters.

My closet is sort of a "catch-all" for various things. I store extra yarn in there, the wonderful white cabinet is actually a storage unit for 12 x 12 papers made by my wonderful friend, Brian Elliott (Leanne's hubby!) On the shelves I store my idea books, other crafts I want to do and the top shelf is all my scrapbooking paraphernalia. LOL

The tall 9-drawer unit is also from IKEA and that's where I store all my punches. I absolutely LOVE this drawer unit!! The top 2 drawers I have sequins and other embellies!  

Well...there ya have it folks! This is where I get crafty. I am still in the process of decorating and I would love to put some cabinets up (or shelves) directly above my computer monitor. So...still a work in progress!!  Thanks for stopping in!! xoxoxo

Make sure to join us next Friday for a peek into Nance Salkeld's craft space!
