You should have arrived here from Eileen LeFevre's blog Stampin Fever. If you are just starting on my blog, you can go all the way around and see everyone's posts from here, or you can always go to the beginning at the SU Rocks home page if you get lost.
Now, on to my stamping space. I am very blessed to have an entire room that was built and designed just for my stamping. My hubby has built three houses for us, so he's pretty handy (and when I say "built", I mean he framed the houses, ran all the electrical, did the plumbing, etc., etc.). So I was able to tell him what I wanted in a stamping room. It's located in our basement, but I have a large window, so I don't feel like I'm in a dungeon.
Here's a look at what people see when they walk down the stairs. My stamping room is off to the left and the family room (or stamping class room) is on the right.
I do like to have some creative things around me to inspire me and brighten things up, however. This is right above my stamping "desk". Most are things that I've made or gifts I've gotten from Convention or incentive trips. I also keep some stamps and other items from the most recent mini catalog (and Sale-a-bration right now) right above my desk so they are handy to grab.
I purchased this shelf to use in my kitchen, but then I re-purposed it for my stamp room. It's a great place to display some more recent creations or some of my favorite ones.
Now on to how I store and organize some of my things. Most of my punches are stored in a couple of drawers. Most of them are the "old style" punches, so this works well for me.
But this little wire shelf is for some of the new style punches. I keep the newer punches and unique shaped punches on here.
My Big Shot and Bigz and Original Dies sit out on my counter top. I use my Big Shot a LOT. The larger dies like the Bigz XL are stored in the cabinet above. (Did you notice the M&M lights under my counter top? That's my "mood lighting". HA!)
I keep my 8-1/2" x 11" paper in hanging file folders in the four-drawer file cabinet to the left of my stamping desk. Of course they are in their appropriate color families and then filed alphabetically within each color family.
My 12" x 12" paper is kept in this storage unit so it will stay flat. Since I don't have enough of the storage boxes for each individual color, I have them grouped by "reds", "blues", "greens", etc. On top is a plastic milk crate where I keep all of my current Designer Series Papers. I keep each "set" of paper in individual craft keepers.
