Scrapbook Space: Leslie Garlock

28 Mar

Once again we’re giving you a sneak peek into a fabulous scrapbook space. We love seeing how designers set up their space and fill it with things they love. You’re sure to love Leslie Garlock’s beautiful and inspiring space. We asked her a few questions about her amazing room.

Where is your space located in relation to your house?

I used our formal living room in the front of the house. I love being able to see out the large windows.

Want to read more about Leslie’s space? Then keep reading!

How did you determine the layout or design of this space?

The furniture is very large so there are only so many ways I can arrange it. I have just recently moved it around.

What color is on the walls?

The color on the walls is called Toasty. It’s a Sherwin Williams color. I chose pink and brown because I have three boys and don’t get to decorate girly much.

Can you give us some tips on how and why you store things the way that you do?

I’m a very organized person so things have to be just so. The cardstock is all Bazzill and organized by color. Each tray is labeled with the name and what texture it is.  I purchased the paper trays from Display Dynamics. The 12×12 clear bins were purchased at Target and I organize them by theme. Boys, beach, flowers, holidays, food, etc… some of
them are organized by company like Chatterbox, Bo Bunny, KI memories, etc… I keep my smaller Cricut out and take the larger one to crops. I use the Gypsy so they are all in one spot. The clear jars on the paper racks hold my ribbons, pens, inks, chalks, stamps, and flowers so they can be easily seen. The larger pink bins I also purchased at Target. They hold punches, and the larger foam stamps. I keep my scraps right next to me in the filling drawer by color (very handy).

When do you spend time in this space?

 I spent a lot of time in my office. It’s not just for scrapbooking, most days I am in here all day until the kids get home.

Are there any more details about this space that you’d like to share?

The furniture was purchased at Office Depot believe it or not… It was part of the Christopher Lowell collection.

We want to thank Leslie for allowing us a peek into her fabulous space. I’m sure you were inspired. You can find her beautiful work and her blog here at Two Peas in a Bucket.

Oh I am envious. I have had my eye on the Christopher Lowell collection at Home Depot for a year now. I promised myself when tax time came around, I would began purchasing some of the pieces, but I got a little carried away with Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink instead. Love your space, especially your paper storage rack, how fun!

I really love your space. I'm in the process (and a long one), of moving my current digs from our basement to our front office as well. It is a very small space for the size of furniture/desk that is in there. I'm going to make it work though and really loved the ideas you used to organize your things.

Thanks for the story and for sharing!

I have had the privilege of being in this room many times, because Leslie is my BEAUTIFUL sister! It is a wonderful, relaxing and very functional space allowing your creativity to flow. I am very proud of her and her creativity, but mostly because of her love for her boys, family, friends and the simpler things of life. She's an amazing person and I am honored to call her my sister, my friend!! She inspires me in so many ways and I love her dearly!!! You go Leslie!! And as always, Mom is cheering you on and is so so proud of her girl! xo
