We’ve officially moved and I’m in my new Chic n Scratch Studio

We moved in last Friday, September 11th.  I’ve only unpacked our kitchen and stamps, ink, and paper. I’ve also unpacked the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (and all the dies the embossing folders).  Everything else is still in boxes (even my pantry)…. but, I’m not going to rush the unpacking!!  I have some items I need to find sooner rather than later!!

Last week I shared on my Chic n Scratch Stamps Facebook Group a whole series of photos of the building process. I’m going to share them with you all now …but first I’ll share how it looks at the moment.  The stamps up top won’t stay there … I’m waiting for my stamp shelves to get repainted to match this room. 

And, yes I’m still pinching myself … I kept most of it under wraps because I was so afraid something would happen and we wouldn’t end up moving.  With Covid19 nothing is a given anymore!! 

As soon as I get unpacked and find a home for everything I’ll do a video room tour and I’ll share where everything is organized.  I’ve gone from a room that measures 28′ x 17′ to a room that’s 15′ x 14′.  It may take me a few months to get it all figured out!!

Here’s a comparison

Here’s the building progress…. 

The framing 

The Cabinets

The other side of the room

The paint

Floors and Lights

It’s complete!! 

I shared a drawing of my studio with you several months ago.  But once the build started we realized just how small this room was.  So, we scrapped the drawing and went with custom cabinets on two sides of the room (maybe later we can do the other two walls).  For my Stamps, Ink and Paper I’m using all Stamp n Storage products and I’ll provide all the details once we get everything unpacked (if you look closely at the first pic you’ll see empty spaces). 

Here’s our 1st or 2nd draft drawing that we made last December.  I purchased the Alex Drawers in December but returned them once we decided to go the custom route.  For those of you looking to redo your craft room I’d be happy to help your map your room out using Ikea Shelves, Ikea Alex Drawers and Stamp n Storage

 Now back to business!!  I’m back to doing to my two live videos every week and over the next week or so I’ll get all those projects posted here on my blog. 

Thank you again for all your patience over the last year and especially the last month! It’s hard to believe we started this process in September 2019.
