I had seen these online but at that stage they were only available in the U.S.A. Then recently I saw them at a papercraft expo. I went home and told hubby about it, expecting him to not be interested BUT he could see the value in having all my stuff in one place, at my fingertips, a place for everything and everything in it's place. So he said "Let's get it for your birthday" Whoo Hoo!
It arrived last week and we spent a few days putting it together (we don't get much uninterrupted time these days with 2 kids!) and now it is done.
I have labeled all the totes and put everything into them.
On the far left and right are velcro boards. I plan on using one side for displays and the other for storage. My paper trimmer fits nicely into one of the long clear velcro-on bags.
The large totes on the left hold all my stamp sets. The skinny totes beside them hold punches, wheel handles, wheel guide etc.
The 12x12 totes in the centre hold 12x12 papers, scrapping kits, A4 papers, and the 2 closest to the bottom hold my markers and scissors.
I took out some of the shelves so I could fit my ink pad caddy in there.
On the right hand side, the skinny totes hold everything from buttons, brads, eyelets and embossing powders to sanding blocks, sponges, daubers and twine.
The wider totes on the right hold all kinds of things - hodge podge hardware, pretties kit, ribbon spools (although Heather from Scrapbox Australia is getting me a special ribbon tote soon), adhesives, watercolour crayons, brayer and so much more.
The table folds away and there is even a little bit of storage room under there. I need to get a bin for under that space.
Here's how it looks all closed up. It even has locks on the top to keep the kids out - perfect!
If you want more info on the Scrapbox, leave me a comment and I'll pass Heather's details on to you. She is getting more of these into the country in September. Mine is the Vanilla but she will be getting the black ones and possibly the wood finish ones too.
Love it, love it, love it!
