Photos of my Stamping Hut

I recently picked up some great used office furniture that was only two years old.

I keep my ink pads and embellishments on my desk at all times. The desktop is quite large so I still have plenty of room for stamping. And I can even have one or two people over if they don't mind sharing the workspace.

The top drawer of the lateral file houses my holiday stamp sets, reinkers, and craft stampin' spots. I store all of my 8x11 cardstock in the bottom drawer of the lateral file.

My cardstock is sorted in alphabetical order by color family. Why by color family? It's because I used to keep my cardstock in four separate containers so I had one container for each color family. When I transferred everything over to the lateral file, I kept them in color families because I'm used to thinking that way. This system is definitely not for everyone, but it works for me.

The hutch stores the rest of my Stampin' Up! stamp sets. I'm still trying to come up with a better way to properly organize them.

Behind my desk are my punches and other supplies that I like to keep on hand, like my adhesive and Stampin' Scrub. They are stored on Bygel rails and baskets from IKEA. The rails come in two different sizes. Mine are the larger 39 1/4" size. This entire set up was only $13, including sales tax! I can't take credit for this idea though, because many fellow stampers have already posted this on the web. But I do wish someone had warned me that the rails do not come with any hardware! So be prepared to take a trip to Home Depot afterwards so you can anchor them to the wall.

Well folks, this concludes the tour. Hope you enjoyed visiting my Stamping Hut!

Thanks Denise! I have to confess that I took these pictures right after cleaning my stamp room. It doesn't normally look like this! Usually there are papers and half finished projects all over my desk.
