Weekend Stamping?

Ok so I didn't get much accomplished over the weekend in terms of creating, however I did get some new "toys". Since I love glitter so much I picked up some Glitter Markers at AC Moore, they are so cool! Then at BJ's I found a pack of 72 Gel pens, which inlcude glitter ones!! Target is fablous right now, go to the dollar spot! They have tons of great things for Valentine's day creations. Then today I had some time to organize my little space, I picked up some wire shelves and 12x12 plastic drawers from Walmart.

Here is my question for you.... how do you store and organize your wood mounted stamps?? We all have loads of them. I know SU has theirs in the plastic cases, those I have in Iris carts and even that I can't find what I need. But like most I have loads of mounted "loose" (not part of a set) stamps. When they are put away and out of site I forget what I have. It would be cool to be able to "showcase" them like in a stamp store but that is not possible.

I have one creation to share with you today. I've been on a Valentine's Day kick so here is my cute owl I picked up at my LSS. The owl is by Inkadinkado. The background patterned paper is from the target $1 spot! I used my new glitter markers to color the hearts on the body and to add the glittery trim. The ribbon is from Michael's and the large eyelets are from AC Moore. I used my handy dandy Cutttlebug to create the embossed effect .

That is it for now!

I store my stamps on top of my desk. Above the flat surface of my desk are cabinets attached to my desk I keep all my wood stamps from SU! up there.

What a cute card- I gotta see if I can track down that owl stamp- he's a hoot!

I store my wood mounted stamps in my Elfa drawers (from the Container Store). I have them organized mostly by manufacturer, with a few exceptions.

That little owl is just too cute, and so is that darling card!

I have been indexing my stamps in a 3ring binder, so that I don't forget what I have. When I want to stamp I can just look through my book and then decide what stamp I want to use. :0) I am in the process of going unmounted for all of my non-SU stamps.
