New Project Life Setup...

Once again, I've rearranged a few things in the scraproom; and I've created a new Project Life Station that I love, love, love! I'm so excited to share it with you!

Here's an overview picture. The red table is from Ikea. (I couldn't find a link-sorry) The big white organizer thingy is from Making Memories (also discontinued, but here's something similar)...

I love it because it's organized, and everything is easy to see. It's also much more compact than my original setup. I also like that it has it's own table, with nothing else to mess it up...


Now for some closeups...


This is my most exciting discovery! I realized that BOTH of my Core kits - Cobalt AND Clementine fit into this 7 Gypsies Library Drawer! I used the monthly dividers to separate the kits. Everything fits here - the 4 x 6 cards, the stickers, the filler cards and the journaling cards. Plus there's room at the back for 6 x 6 pads, and room at the front for misc. printable journaling cards. It makes it so easy to just flip through and find exactly what I want!

To the left of the library tray is this Stampin Up organizer box. I use it to keep oversized things that I think will work especially well with PL. Rub-ons, stickers, alpha stamp sets, etc...
and right in front of that is a little paper mache box (from Michael's) with misc. goodies; such as Sassafras paper whimsies, printable month calendars, and Amy Tangerine Envelopes...


Next to that I have another paper mache box filled with ATC-sized goodies, such as October Afternoon wild cards, tiny bags and tickets. Next to that is a vintage bowl filled with OA flower sack, and other punched bits. Next to that are two Stampin Up tiny alpha stamp sets. In the white drawers behind them are various numbers to use as dates - chipboard, epoxy, stickers, etc...
In the Making Memories organizer, I've got the Clementine Cardstock papers, plus rub-ons, and misc other doo-dads that fit in the pockets. Those Ormolu number badges are one of my favorite things!!!


And lastly, my vintage Olympiette typewriter. My pride and joy has a handy spot so I can type on the journal cards when the occasion calls for it.
So that's my little Project Life Station. If you are doing Project Life, how are you organizing your stuff? I'd love to see!

Thanks for visiting, and I will be back soon!

You are so organized!

That is quite a set-up; makes me wonder if PL is the majority of your scrapping. While the table is fab, it's your typewriter that is making me envious.

Heathwitch said...

I love it! Am very envious -- my desk is cluttered and busy. I guess I should take some time to sort it out and make it into an inspiration centre too :)

Patricia said...

this is awesome. I think I may do something like this. I've been contemplating how to set up a station for PL. giving it's own table is perfect. Hmmm. my wheels are turning. Thanks for the inspiration. =)
