H2H From Your Heart To Ours Challenge

What are the chances?? I just finished posting about how I have my paper sorted. Please be sure to check out my previous post. Since I already did the paper. I decided that for this challenge I would show how the rest of my scrapbook material and tools are organized. **WARNING** I did not tidy for the pictures... and I'm a messy scrapper.

This is what would be on my left side when I am sitting down at the scrap table. I recently shifted everything over in my bedroom to give my scrapbook supplies a proper space. Big thanks to my husband for letting me take over our bedroom COMPLETLY.
 I bought the bookcase/desk at IKEA. It is perfect. Each cube section is 13.5" x 13.5". I know PERFECT size right!! and there are 25 cube sections. 5 high by 5 wide. There where smaller bookcase available but I'm glad i went with the big one. I already got it full.
This was my old paper system. I found these at walmart. 13 x 13.5 drawers. Perfect for paper. I have 4 stacked on top on each other here. Now they store random supplies
I have one drawer for my chipboard, one for embossing supply, 4 or 5 for stickers (which i don't use all that much but still buy), one for rub ons, etc...

 I have this bin full of project my kids have taken home, of pamphlet i have collected on a trip. Basically any thing I may want to add to my scrapbook when I get to working on that particular project.
 I got this bag at Regionals in Calgary. Its perfect. I can store the items i use the most close to my work surface so it near when i need it and i can pick it up and go for crops or workshops.
 My magazines and if you notice i have my ribbon in that dispenser bag. Love that.
 More magazines and my layout books... well some of them I can see i didn't unpack from the last workshop.
 These big box where the best for hiding my unfinished project and extra ribbons all sort of stuff like that.
 I keep the embossing powder i use often in the glad containers with a plastic spoon. So that I can pour it on my project and the excess powder falls right back in the container. Mess free! I have my adhesive in a drawer container on the side.
 Envelopes. I;m lucky to work at a pharmacy. Every so often they get rid of their envelope and I'm right there to collect. Not so much anymore.. I'm good in envelopes now.
 Stamps.. stamps and more stamps. I decided to use these Dollar store basket instead of the CTMH cases because i wanted easier access when I'm scrapping. I just have too many stamps for the cases.
 There containers holds my blocks, my punches and my sponges which i have cut into 6 and stapled a piece of paper indicating which colour it is for.
 And my Slice Elite. Love it.
 Well that was the grand tour. Can't wait to see your space.
