I've known of others to just keep their stamps in the original packaging or even to put them in page protectors or in cute little baskets. There's tons of different ways to store them.
Tim Holtz Grungeboard - Honestly?? I haven't really used it to much. I think I used it once, but it's pretty fun. You can stamp it, distress it, paint it, or pretty much do anything with it. It's a flexible material so it won't rip, and look at it...it comes with all different fonts sizes. How fun is that? The only con that I've found so far is to be daring enough to actually use it instead of just looking at it. However, there are tons of videos on youtube explaining different ways to use it.
The Cricut - one of the greatest scrapbooking tools ever. Seriously, I don't know what could be better. One of these days I'll make a post of just the stuff that it can do. It's amazing. It can cut and make almost any shape, and now there is software that you can buy so you hook it up to your computer and will cut any ttf. font (sure cuts a lot) so that you never have to buy another font cartridge again. However, you'll still want to buy cartridges because they have some of the cutest shape ones ever. It's very, very easy to use. I think the only con to it is that is is pricey, but it totally makes up for it.
Let's see....the pros are...it holds lots of stuff and it is easy accessibility. It helps you not forget what you have. The cons are.....it's not too pretty. It's BIG, and it's a little pricey unless you use a coupon. Overall, I think it's pretty cool. I wish that the clips were a little bigger to you could attach more stuff to each clip. It's so hard for me to only use one clip for every two items.

I still can't believe I deleted my blog. I'll post more later when I get a chance.
