Ugggghh! An unorganized scrapbooking room is frustrating, right? Especially for those of us who need everything to have a proper place and packed away properly. My scrapbooking room ideas are grand, however, my scrapbooking space is also my sewing room and my work office. As that I can't concentrate on work when there is a mess around me (it clutters my mind), I've become quite the expert on organizing my scrapbook supplies.
Trust me, I know how hard it is to take that first step towards scrapbooking craft room organization so I'm sharing my top tips with you. Here are 11 scrapbooking craft room ideas that will help you organize your craft space in no time!
The secret to achieving your scrapbook organization ideas and goals for my scrapbooking room and ideas is to tackle one section at a time. The best part? You don't have to do it all at once. Breaking it down into smaller chunks makes the whole process a lot easier and a lot less daunting.
For those of you who are time-poor, it's quite okay to tackle one section a week. You will get there eventually and some sections don't take much time, allowing you to achieve a lot in a small amount of time. Although your cardstock may take a while to sort through (see the next idea for tips on this), things like adhesives and scissors are a quick organization job as most people don't have many of these.

Once you settle on a storage solution for your cardstock and paper, make sure to sort it properly before you pack it away. This is done by sorting it first by theme, and then by color.
First, sort your paper into common themes such as seasons, birthday prints, Christmas, solid colors, etc. Now, grab one of your theme stacks and further sort it by color. This is as simple as placing similar color cardstock together. When it comes to patterned pieces, just pick a dominant color and don't spend too much time thinking about it.
You can see in the storage paper organizer below that these plain colored cardstock pieces have been sorted by color.
If you're wallet is a little light when it comes time to getting on top of your scrapbook craft room ideas, don't be afraid to try some DIY scrapbook organization ideas. Old cans can be painted and decorated to hold pens and markers, and old shoeboxes look amazing covered in patterned paper to store embellishments.

Don't worry if you don't have a large space to work with. There are lots of scrapbook craft room ideas intended for smaller spaces. My favorite? Make use of the vertical space in your room such as walls, the sides of cupboard and the back of doors.
A magnetic strip on the back of a cupboard door will hold your scissors in place, or invest in some hanging storage solutions like the over-the-door paper holder below.
Set up a peg-board above your desk for all of your smaller crafting supplies that are frequently used. The IKEA peg board below has really handy cup and tray type storage solutions that are just perfect for pens and markers.
It's nice and neat to keep everything out of site but in reality, it's a little impractical. When working on your scrapbooking craft room organization ideas, make sure to get some neat storage solutions that can live on your desk or very close by for all of your frequently used items such as craft knives and adhesives.
A small desktop organizer like the one below is a great way to keep things neat on your desk while still keeping them within reach.
