acrylic stamp storage

Here's a couple of different ways that I've stored my acrylic stamps. This is when I didn't have too many. I just stuck them in a smaller cd holder. But then I graduated to this, plus I found it at a thrift store for only $2. I know it's not pretty, but it does the job, and it holds so many!!!

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.

some letter stamp storage

This is for my small letter stamp storage. I have them separated by letter in this case. It doesn't take up too much room, and that's why I love it. They used to be in their individual packaging that they came in and took up so much room. I like this way much better.

Couple of reviews

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 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 holds lots of stuff and it is easy accessibility. It helps you not forget what you have. The cons'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 can't believe....

I deleted my blog! I'm such a dork. What's even sadder is that I didn't even notice until Candace asked me about it. Well, in efforts to start over, here's some pages that were probably already posted, but well...I think they're fun, so I'll post them again.

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