Hi Peas! Wonder if those of you who stamp on your scrap pages have two desks or two work areas, one for each activity?
I'm trying to keep my scrap area clean but if I'm stamping, the inks and smudgy stuff makes things complicated. Might have to get me another table just for stamping.
How do you do it?

Nope. I just have a small corner so everything has to happen on my one desk.

I use the same workspace, for everything scrapbooking & stamping. If I am doing a ton of stamping, I cover my mat with kraft paper from a big roll I got from home depot.

I have two separate areas because I had an extra computer desk but previously had one. It's nice because the scrapping area can be free of all the ink and mists but the desks are not right next to each other. I have to walk to another area of the room to get to the other. It's just how it worked out with the existing furniture and layout that we had.
If you have a large craft mat, you can use one desk and have easy clean up.

One spot for me too. I have a big pad of newsprint type "sketch" paper, a TH craft sheet and my cutting mat in a pile. If I am doing messy things I flip my cutting mat up and lean it against my marker storage which sits behind it. If I need to scribble a quick note or dimensions or something I slide stuff over and jot it on the paper underneath.

I use to but prefer to have everything at arms length so to speak. My stamp table now houses my Cameo and Cricut machines.

I only really work at one area. I do hate getting ink everywhere but I use bleach to clean my desk off.

I scrapbook and stamp in the same space. I do have a separate die cutting area. It works great for me.

I use the same table. I have a large desk calendar on my surface so it keeps the desk clean. I buy them cheap this time of year.

I have a separate area but lately it has been done in my scrapping area so I just made a drawer for my ink pads right under my table. I keep cardboard beside me to put on my table when stamping. I'd really like to get one of those resist mats/oven mats people have.

I keep a large splat mat (15"x18" Inkssentials Non-Stick Craft Sheet) on my work surface. As I distress edges on almost every layout, I keep my ink pad and blending tool in the upper right-hand corner of my mat so they're there when I need them. If I ink my mat for any purpose, I make sure to wipe it off with paper towels before putting my layout back on it.

No. I do keep my inkpads separate, just for easy access but everything else is together.

Thanks for the responses everyone!
I usually do everything together on one table but as I age my fine motor skills are going kafluey. So I'm messier.
Think another table/desk for stamping is in order...even something L shaped.
