Scrap room organization ~ part 2

I'm back with more pics!! I've been meaning to share more but, you know, life happened! Anyway, you might remember this picture of my bookshelf

I snatched this bookshelf from my son's room since it wasn't being used effectively in there and basically was just taking up space. I found it at Sam's Club a few years ago for $199. The main function of it is for paper and stamp storage. The bottom shelves hold idea books, projects in progress, etc. I use one of those nuts & bolts holders from Lowes to hold most of my chipboard/alphabets. Originally I used to keep all of my alphabets together in their original packaging. That takes up a lot of room so I finally I organized them by letter and I love it this way.

I decorated the fronts of the drawers with more Basic Grey Mellow paper. Makes that holder a bit more pretty :)

All of my paper is organized by manufacturer. I used to organize by theme but I've found that this way works much better for me. Paper organizers are all Stampin' Up!

All of my Stampin' Up! cardstock is organized by color.

I keep all of the scraps in these plastic holders. Not the prettiest but it works for me. If I keep the scraps in the paper holders with the rest of the paper I find that I don't use them up...and they grow and grow and grow!

When I was reorganizing everything I came across and index file and discovered that my Cuttlebug embossing folders fit perfectly in it

I keep all of my buttons in a plastic container that I found (I think) at Hobby Lobby for around $5. I don't organize them by color since I'm usually using several colors at a time. So I just dig around for what I need!

Just into my room I have this little wall that I keep all of my flowers and an old table (covered with some fabric) that holds my Sizzix stuff

My husband made me this shelf for my flowers with some scrap wood

My flowers are organized by color. Some are in Making Memories jars and others are in leftover Prima cans. I've also used some of those leftover cans for stamps

And finally, next to my table I have one of those Cropper Hopper carts that I got for a super deal years ago
On top I have one of those organizer totes from Hobby Lobby that holds adhesive, scissors, punches, etc. I keep it there so that when I go to a crop or something I can just grab the bag and go. Of course, I don't really go to crops anymore (except out of town) but I still like keeping it there.

Below I have 2-12x12 paper organizers, one holds cardstock scraps ~ organized by color (SO much more useful) and the other one holds patterned paper scraps.

I think that's about it. I could share more but then this post would have about 100 photos!!
