Stamp Storage

I want to downsize my Craft Studio...and would like to start by taking all my wood block stamps off the wood.
 
 
 These are some of the ideas for storage that I found...just need to decide which is best for me.
 
 
 
With way over 3,000 stamps...I have my work cut out for me.

 
 This is Out I think...I like that it takes up very little room...but I like to have my stamps in the storage container.

 
 Decisions...Decisions...Decisions.

 
 I already have some of my Framelits stored like this lady has in the containers...I keep them together with the stamps they go with.

 
 I do know that I will use the clear mount stamp containers that Stampin' Up has.

 
 In a Draw...another good idea.

 
This lady's craft room is beautiful...lots of stamps...but takes up very little room. 

 
I love the clear Stampin' Up boxes. 

 
This is my fav idea...like that she decorated the boxes. 

 
 The big notebook was another option...but not for me...I already took my stamp rollers off the roller and put them in a notebook...I find it heavy and bulky every time I have to pull them out to stamp.

 
 Now all I have to do is decide which way I want to go...and get to work...thanks for dropping by...stay safe this snowy morning.

The inside pocket can hold two packets of hot chocolate.

*****

This is the glass ornament I used on my cards...no problem for the ones I hand delivered...but the ones I had to mail...OH! Boy!...I was charged for a small package...luckily the mailed ones weren't a huge stack...lesson learned...I will have to be careful on the goodies piled up on these heavy babies...but I certainly do love these Glass Ornaments...I originally bought them for the small tree in my studio...but didn't use them...Luv...Luv...Luv them.

Gift Tags Just for You

I had to make one more project with this set...it was so much fun and easy too...the butterflies are wonderful for Birthday or Get Well Cards...I can easily see myself going back to this set over and over to make some Fabulous cards...they will go nicely with the cards I made yesterday.
 
 
 
 
The black card stock I used for the large butterfly was from card stock that came in my junk mail...it is a nice and heavy piece of card stock...with touches of silver writing on it...but once cut into the butterfly you just can't tell what the silver is other than a pattern...I couldn't throw it out...it was too...too pretty...and the quality was Fabulous.
 

 
The Glassine Envelopes can be used to put a gift card...or some Yummy Ghirardelli Chocolates...or cash...who wouldn't love any of these...I Do...I Do...LOL.
 

 
Here is the easy recipe:
 
Stamp Set: Butterfly Basics...and teeny tiny wishes.
*****
Card Stock: whisper white...pink flamingo and Bali breeze DSP...manila...and Glassine bags.
*****
Ink: hello honey and gumball green.
*****
Punches: butterfly thinlets die...bitty butterfly...and word window.
*****
Additional supplies: snail...sticky strip...butterfly washi tape...acrylic block...spring dews mini dew drops...crystal effects...big shot...and fiskar cutter.
 

 
 
The mini dew drops in the Pink and Blue were a Fabulous touch...don't you think...I really love them.
 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by this morning...I have to go back to bed and put my knee back on ice...not sure how long I can do it for...because it's freezin' here this morning...stay safe everyone...and have a Fabulous Day.
