Papercrafting Organization in the New Craft Room Part 1

The big craft room reveal post got so long that I absolutely have to break down the decorating projects and organization into separate posts.

Here's part 1 of the papercrafting organization aka what's in all of those cupboards.
I'll start with the first base cabinet and work my way around the room.
The first section is for my die cutting machines, the Cricut and the Scan N Cut. This first drawer holds those cutting mats and accessories. I like a clean countertop so the cords live in here too.

In the door underneath, I keep my Cricut cartridges in photo boxes. The bottom shelf holds my essential oils and jug of water for my diffuser. Behind my EOs I have 3 12x12 cases that hold my vinyl rolls and additional Scan N Cut accessories.

The drawer unit next to that holds punches of all sorts, some random tools, and my chalk sets.

Up above the drawers is my only glass front cabinet. Of course, this is where all my pretty bits get to be. Buttons and flowers are on the top shelf; two baskets of embellishments are in the middle.
Enamel dots and gems are in their original packaging and tucked in on the left.
Sequin mixes are great in these little containers from Michaels (Recollections brand).
The bottom shelf holds 3 Ikea Birken jars (no longer available -- boo!) of washi tape and a lazy Susan with more buttons and pre-made paper succulents. 
The little tin holds handmade cards that friends and family have sent to me.
Turning the corner, this closed cabinet holds a box of extra supplies and a box of extra ATG tape. I keep my stickers and loose die cuts in 3-ring binders in here. The other side of the cabinet has ink cubes and dewdrops as well as EK success cases with embellishments, ribbon, and more washi tape.

That cupboard sits next to the paper palace. All rainbow-y. There are 3 separate units side-by-side, which hold all of my 12x12 and letter-size paper.
Unit 1 has pocket scrapbooking page protectors, old calendars (for memories), and 2 albums that hold the padawans oversize memorabilia on the top; 12x12 patterned paper on the bottom. I used to split stacks apart, but found I like keeping them together. The first couple of 12x12 holders have mixed brands of paper, then they're kept as stacks.

Unit 2 has my branded, heavier cardstock from Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up, Taylored Expressions, etc. on the top shelf. I broke down how I label my paper in this post. The bottom shelf has more patterned paper 12x12 stacks and then my 12x12 cardstock.

Unit 3 has the remainder of my heavyweight, branded 11.5x8 cardstock then my store brand cardstock on the top shelf. On the bottom, I have 12x12 sticker sheets, a couple of mini album projects, and the scrapbooks I'm working on currently.

One last spot I'll share in this post. We have this ruffled curtain because there is piping and a radiator heater in this corner and we (1) couldn't fit a cabinet in this space easily and (2) it's better to not block off the mechanicals. It ended up being a great place to hide this super cute little cart.
I tend to do my stamping and coloring and assembling while sitting. It is much more convenient to pull this over to my desk-height counter than have to dig things out of drawers and be standing, sitting, standing, sitting. Plus it's one of my favorite colors... and it's cute. #therealrationale
I keep my Stickles, Nuvo drops, stamping blocks, stamp cleaners, Taylored Expressions blending brushes, full-size ink pads, and basket of dry adhesives on it.
When I'm not using it, it gets tucked away right in here.
More cupboard organization pics are on their way. Stay tuned!
Do you have one of these carts? What color did you pick?
