Hello, G45ers!

 Have you started your Spring Cleaning?  We have a fabulous Craft Studio Tour by Pam Bray that will encourage you to pull out your paper crafting stash and start organizing.  Pam shares a video tour, along with 5 amazing tips and ideas on keeping your craft space clean and ready for your next creative adventure.  Be sure to take some notes, and be sure to share your craft room storage ideas down below in the comments. 

 

Scrapbook Flair/Pam Bray Designs Studio Tour – 2018

 

Hi Graphic 45 fans, Pam here today! I am so excited to welcome you to my creative I hope you are excited to see my creative space because it has come a long way from when I first started scrapbooking 19 years ago and used my dining room table. I will share a few organizational ideas that work for me! I am sure some of my ideas you will love and others you will think I love what I am doing right now. Just remember though it is not where you how you store your stuff or where you create but that you have fun!” Pam

 

Tips:

  1. I like to have stations in my studio…i.e., stamping, die cutting, painting, etc. It just makes it easier to for me to find my stuff.

  2. I love to have different containers and textures for storage from canvas tubs to galvanized tins to boxes and jars.

  3. Keep some of your favorite projects on display. They will always keep you inspired when creating.

  4. Always…Always…Always Be True to Your Creative Style!!!!

  5. HOLD ON TO YOUR HAT FOR THIS ONE…. I always clean my spaces up between projects. I really mean I clean them up…I put everything away between projects even my adhesive runner, lol. I think this comes from being raised with a Drill Sargent Dad that always told us to clean as you go, lol.

Pam’s 3 Featured Projects

The Sun, Sea, and Sand Passport Album

by Pam Bray

Tips:

  1. Create small mini albums ahead of time to place those special moments in when you are ready.

  2. Adding pockets and hidden pockets behind mats will give added space for photos and journaling.

  3. Add flower soft or other mediums to centers of flowers to give dimension.

Olde Curiosity Shoppe P is for Pam by Pam Bray photo 1

#UniquelyYou Challenge

By Pam Bray

Tip: To add dimension to your flower: Ink edges of petals; roll each petal on a soft mat using a stylus. Bend petals with tweezers, layer together and secure with brad. Mist lightly with water. Make sure to squish slightly to give a scrunched up look. Allow to dry completely before placing on your projects.

I am just starting my second year as a crafter and my supplies are somewhat slim. I am only buying what I absolutely need at this point. (need....LOL). Despite that my room is already filling up! I have organized things as best I can at this point and I DO pack everything away and start with a clean table for each project........my question is, will I have this much stuff to deal with in a few years? LOL If so, I need to prepare!

Love your campers...you'd have the big one if you seen my craft room which is huge, its piled up everywhere I don't even craft in the room... hoping to get it cleaned out, but that was a goal 2 yrs ago and last yr..I keep the door closed always. One tip I have is I keep my washi tape on belt holders I got at dollar general store, easy to see everything I have, my room is a large bedroom and has a big walk I. Closet, there is a rod in there that I hang belt holders on...live in a big ole house, built in 1910..now my paper is organized in the closet, I bought 3 drawer plastic 12x12 holders and have a lot of them and each drawer is for a color, or graphic 45 papers all in one drawer..thanks for sharing your space, I'm sooooo jealous!!

I don't know what to drool more over . . . your halloween projects since halloween is my favorite event to make things for; your die cutting station, your farm table work space, or just the entire studio. I can see where creativity is always giving off inspiration in your special place. Thanks so much for sharing!

Organization is my nemesis. It literally keeps me from crafting because I'd have to find everything first, and given I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, the thought of searching through everything just overwhelms me. How much would you charge to come organize my space? :) :) Lovely, gorgeous projects, btw. Just stunning!

Love all the tips. I'm also one of those papercrafters who cleans off my desk after each project. IKEA furniture/storage units are great for a craft room and there's lots of things at the dollar stores that can be used in a craft room. For my paper trimmers and score boards I use a stand that is used in the kitchen to hold saucepan lids - very handy. I've also made some of my own desktop organizers from heavy duty chipboard and Graphic 49 paper to hold pens, pencils, markers, scissors, paintbrushes, etc. I can customize the organizer to fit the space and the objects. If something is in view you will access it faster.

I'm not a teacher and don't have a military background, so I don't have those organizing abilities. (Although my mother and mother-in-law did!) Also, I often have several projects going at once, so I must be highly motivated (read: need to use the dining table for company) to clear everything off! Now that I DO have a real craft room, I hope to some time soon have it together.... Thanks, Pam, for showing us yours. I can see it's the space for a real professional!

Wow! What a great space! It is quite a bit larger than my dining room table... I have a storage cupboard but I tend to forget what is in there because I have to unpack every time I search for something.

HOW I GET MY EX BACK WITHIN 2 DAYS i sincerely want to thank a great spell caster called Dr joy for helping me to bring back my husband to me and my kids. after many years of marriage, my husband left me and my kid, and ran away with his new girlfriend to san francisco to start up their life without thinking about me and my son.I felt like my life was about to end, and was falling apart.after years of our separation i could not take it anymore so i decided to visit a friend who also encounter similar issue but she is living happily with her man now , to seek advice from her on how she get her ex husband back again.when i get there i explain everything to her and she told me not to worry that she will link me up with the spell caster who cast a spell on her husband that make him to come back to her. i pick her advice and i strongly hold onto it.then I contacted fortune spell caster (joylovespell@gmail.com OR joylovespell@gmail.com) and after I explained my problem,he told me not to worry that i have no problem in getting my husband back again.he gave me 2 days assurance that my husband will come looking for me that when he come i should accept him back. i told him that i will whole heatedly welcome him back. In just 3 days my husband came back to us and apologize for all the pain he have bring to the family. We solved our issues, and we are even happy more than ever before. fortune spell caster is the best spell caster to solve any kind of problem and sickness you have.. I really appreciate the love spell you cast for me to get the man back to my life i will keep sharing more testimonies to people about your good work. if you want your ex back and you don,t know what to do kindly email joylovespell@gmail.com for your ex to come back whats app him :+2348100452479.
