…Sparkly and Cool!
Today I got my first Clear-Mount stamp set, and I got my Clear-Mount blocks too. They are so beautiful, and I almost hate to use them, cause I know they are gonna get all inky. Now just to make sure you understand, the stamps are still rubber, but now you can stick them on the clear block and then take them off when you are done, and they store in this DVD kinda container. Neat eh? Especially if you have storage issues. I will still get most of mine the old fashioned wood mount, cause it will be easier for classes, but I think the stamp sets I get "just for me" I might get the Clear-Mount way.
Wanna see em?
I finished cleaning up my one cupboard, I want to start the year out fresh. Wanna see that too? OK.
The top shelf has a shoe rack thing it gave me more shelves up there without having to actually add any. We have two of these "wardrobes", we got them years ago at Home Depot. One side had a hang bar thing, so Jeff removed it, drilled holes and we bought more shelves. I have the matching one for my stamp sets. I need to clean it up too. You can see more pictures of my studio on the left, but I need to update it, cause I have made some changes.
Anyway back to the cupboard:
Hanging on the doors are the brayers (important not to rest on the rubber), and the other door are just a few of my many years of name badges from events, and trips.
Top shelf has dollar store boxes with odds and ends in. CD's of Workshop wow's, SU trips etc. The jars have buttons, brads etc. in them. Some of the jars are old from my Granny's house, and they still have their honey or jam label on them, I love them, they make me smile and I love to re-use things or give them another purpose and these work great.To the right are 12×12 papers that won't fit in my 12×12 craft keepers, and I keep my rub-ons in there too. My label maker, it sure comes in handy.
Second shelf is the forget me not keepers with my etsy cards in them, extra odds and ends, the empty stamp set boxes are great for classes, for ribbon, designer series paper strips that you don't want to stuff into the envelope, etc. To the right is copy paper, catalogs and mini catalogs
Third shelf is glitter, embossing powders, ink refills, to the right is copy paper, glass jars that have not got anything in them…yet. Binders with my Blog printed out. I figure its like a journal/diary kinda…I always forget to print it half the time…ha!
Fourth shelf is ribbon, and to the right is adhesives, and envelopes for classes.
Fifth shelf is bowls for candy, old catalogs in the back, masking tapes, dictionary and thesaurus when I am at a loss for words…ha!…ok maybe the RIGHT word. To the right is my zyron machine (which I never use and should sell), bond copy paper, and envelopes for general mailing.
There not too shabby eh? Now to keep it tidied up all the time.
I have class in the morning, so I am gonna call it a night.
Have a great Saturday and thanks for stopping in!
