Happy WOYWW, today my desk is relatively tidy but for stamps.


I bought a new Hero Arts sets on Monday and Ive had fun playing with it- they are all quite cute images (called Whimsical elements- bottom left of the photo). You can just about see the frog card on my shelf that I made for the CASology and ColourQ challenges using these stamps.




You can also spot a plethora of ink pads used for he aforementioned project along with some stamps that needs putting back in their correct place. I have, what I think is quite a good storage system for inks and clear stamps but my problem is actually using the system - I'm so lazy.

This is how I store my inks- its a really useful box divider in one of my Ikea desk drawers. I stack larger ink pads on top of each other and store all my memento ink pads end on so I can see the names. Only problem with this is, as you can see, if you take a few out of a compartment the others fall over. You can also see my homemade colour card keyring for matching ink colours- only trouble is it is a bit out of date and doesn't have my most recent inks on it.


Here you can see one of three boxes of stamps- this really useful box holds stamps sets that are around A6 in size. I remove or trim the packaging and slip them into clear CD wallets. This keeps the sets togther and allows me to flick through them . I try to keep similar stamps togther- for example all the sets with pink cards in are my Marion Emberson ones.

Hope you've enjoyed the tour,

  4. I have, indeed, enjoyed the tour! It's always interesting to see what works for different people. Not that you're different, I didn't mean that. I mean one person versus another. Not like a competition, I didn't mean that. I mean ... oh, just fooling around wid ya. With the twinks here I haven't been doing a daily blog - can you tell I miss writing/jibber jabber?! LOL! Have a great week! Darnell #102

  7. Some great organisation going on - and I so agree about keeping ink pad colour swatches up to date - something else just scribbled on the 'to do' list here :)

    Love the frog card - just 'blew him up' and had a closer peek.
