My Studio Tour and an Imaginisce Tool Giveaway!

Welcome to my Studio Tour! (and I-Top giveaway!)

In honor of my creative space being on the "I-Space" feature on the Imaginisce Blog today, I'm doing a personal giveaway on my blog!
I'm giving away an Imaginisce I-Top Tool package to one of my wonderful SUBSCRIBERS.  You'll find out what's in the prize package and how you can win at the end of this post so read on...

You may have seen my craft room earlier this year, but I've made a few changes and updated it a bit lately.

My space is a 450 square foot loft in our home where I like to come at least once a day to create.  The photos make it look a bit cramped, but it's actually very open and spacious.
I wanted to have a place where a lot of people can come over to scrapbook or make cards or home decor projects together, so there are 6 desk spaces with chairs.  I got the desks and filing cabinets from IKEA.
 Each area has it's own function, whether it be sewing, scrapbooking, die cutting, vinyl work, a computer area, stamping area, jewelry making, etc. and all of my supplies and tools are organized so that each area has everything for that type of crafting.
My punches are on the wall for easy access, and my border punches are in the drawer below.
 These rails are actually kitchen rails from IKEA called Bygel rails.  They perfect for punches, and are available in two different lengths.
These shelves are from Hobby Lobby and are great because they have a lip on them so things don't roll off.  Cartridges fit perfectly on them (unless you have too many, then they hang off the edge :)
 This is the view when I enter the room.  The walls are a pale blue called "Enamelware" by Martha Stewart Paint.  I got it at Home Depot.  The other color I loved was "Vintage Map" which is a little more green, and also would have been great in this room.
The accents are all black and white with a damask pattern.  I made the valance with fabric from Hobby Lobby.  The shelf, dressforms, vases, flowers, and most of the frames in the room are also from Hobby Lobby.

This clock I found at Target, and the vinyl lettering is a decor element from Stampin' Up!
This is the sewing area.  The table is the largest one in the room, which is great when you're dealing with very large pieces of fabric.  I do a lot of sewing on layouts and cards as well.
 I LOVE TWINE!  (Can you tell?)  I keep the wrappers on them so I can remember the names of the colors.
These items are all from Hobby Lobby.  The room has a very French feel.  I hope to visit there someday, but for now I have Eiffel Towers all over my craft room.
Inside the white cabinet is my stamp sets, albums, and craft supplies for my kids.  They love to come up here with me and draw, paint, draw on their chalkboard, and play with play-doh.  I have a child's easel in this room for them as well.
This is the area on the left side of the room, and is where most of my storage is.  I keep my stamping supplies here, as well as my inks and markers, adhesives, watercolors, prismacolors, and everything else "artsy."  

And this is my main desk.  I love this grid mat more than I can express.  It's by Martha Stewart Crafts and is enormous!  Definitely a must have.
The large white boxes are where I keep the things I want to keep, like school programs, birthday cards, mementos from special events, my kids' art work, etc.  Each family member has one, as well as one for family events and trips.  I eventually incorporate these items into my albums with the layout that goes along with the event.  It's a nice way to store them so I don't have "piles" of stuff everywhere.
This is a large vinyl lettering element that I created on my computer and cut.  It's the first thing I see when coming up the stairs into the room.  (The wall color looks brownish in this photo, but it's really more of a soft robin egg blue).
 These paint brushes belonged to my husband's grandmother, as well as her oil paint set in the blue case.  I'm honored that she gave them to me.  The photos are of me and five generations on my mother's side, all about age 18.  It's very inspiring to have this and to be able to look at their pictures every day.
My Clip-It-Up and ink pad storage.  I love my Clip-It-Up more and more each day (and it gets more and more full each day, too).
My new peg board!
It's one of the newest additions to the room.  It became very necessary as I began designing for more and more companies.  I got the idea from Marielle who was on the Imaginisce design team last year.  I love how everything's visible and accessible, and I also love how everyone who comes in this room can see the products of the companies that I love. :)
 This is my computer desk.  Sadly I lost my desktop Mac computer this year.  It died of old age :)  For now I just have a laptop.  I love my Artisan 835 photo printer.  It's remarkable how well photos turn out.  It's essential for the times when I need a photo and don't have time to have one printed at a store or online.  The quality is excellent.  I highly recommend it, other than that it can't print 12x12.  Five stars, two thumbs up :)

Here's how I store my patterned paper.  I organize it by theme, and sub categorize it by manufacturer.  I have a patterned paper problem and can't stop buying it.  
  And here's the far end of the room.  Notice how I like things in rainbow order?
This is how I store my loose buttons and flowers, glitter, glimmer mists & stickles.

 This is a darling idea from Heidi Swapp I saw on My Craft Channel.  It's called a "Clip Frame."  HERE is a link to the video.  I love it because it's super cute, and I can switch out my calendars each month.
 This is where my Cricut Expression lives when it's not being used.
This white cabinet is the perfect size for the machine to fit into.
And last but not least is my Jetmax storage for solid cardstock and other tools.  Here's where I keep my embossing folders, Big Shot dies, Imaginisce tools, misting tools and supplies, chipboard, scoring tool, trays, and ribbon.

My Imaginisce tools!  (Notice the new I-Magicut?  It's fantastic!  LOVE it!)
 I found these "tackle boxes" at Michael's and I love them because they're the perfect size for my Imaginisce tools, and the dividers are movable, so you can design it how you want it.
 This one's for my I-Rock and D-Stress supplies.....
 And this one's for my I-Top daddies, templates and large and extra large heads.
I keep all the toppers on the left side by size, and the bottoms divided by size and style on the right.

Speaking of the I-Top......

    1. My albums are in this room right now because I'm ordering new binders, so all my page protectors are on metal rings :) I'll hopefully have new binders soon and then they'll go where my family and friends can look at them. I want them to be enjoyed, not stored away.
