I don't know about you, but I love to see what other designers have done to organize their scrapbook supplies. It's so inspiring to take a peek into other people's creative spaces and find out a little about how they work.
Today, we get to go on a little tour of Gabrielle Pollacco's scrapspace. Gabi says, "I'm one of those scrappers that has to start with a clean slate, so no matter how messy I get while scrapping (and believe me, it looks like a bomb hit the room while I'm in the middle of scrapping!) I always clean up immediately after I finish my project so that I am ready to scrap when the mood/or assignment strikes."
Oooh, now there's something to aspire to! Take a look at the benefits of cleaning up your scrapbook room...let's start with Gabi's main workspace:
On the right, you can see Gabi has some great shelving, perfect for idea books, little knick knacks and simple storage that can even add a bit of color to the room.
Here's a closer look at all the great things on these shelves:
To the left of the work space, she has what's called a slat wall, where she can easily display all of her packaged embellishments:
This makes these so easy to find whenever she's looking! This is also most likely the reason her daughter's friends ask to see "your mom's store."
Here, you can see how her clear jars of flowers are pulling double duty, not just practical, but decorative as well:
And here, you can take a quick peek into the drawers in Gabi's room. Her inks and punches are perfectly housed and easy to reach when Gabi's creating a masterpiece!
Since Gabi, like so many designers, loves to create dimensional layouts, she's often asked what she does with them once they're done. While many of these go into an album, she makes a point to rotate new layouts into these frames every few months or so:
What a great way to keep your artwork on display.
What a fabulous and fun little tour of this wonderful space!
Gabi adds, "I know! My red chair just does NOT go with the room! LOL! But it's comfortable!"
Maybe that chair has creative powers or something...because the projects that come out of here are certainly inspiring! Thanks, Gabi, for giving us the tour!
