WOYWW 164 .........The Big One

Well it's here not just Julia's fabulous Stamping Ground Blog with her WOYWW, but also the summer holidays or 'The Big One' as it's come to be known  in my house. As usual I am full of ideas as to how I am going to while away the next few weeks, hopefully that will include some time spent crafting. My desk this week is just waiting for me. I haven't got any projects on the go but I am building up to it. I'm still shell shocked by the busy last few weeks, so I'm just starting to unwind. A big Thank you to everyone who commented on my last weeks post. The art work was very well received and the comments from all of you really kept me going. On my table this week I've got some new goodies in the shape of a large Archival ink pad, a new mat stack and some fabulous stamps which I was lucky to win in a blog candy draw over at Jennie's blog, The Artistic Stamper, a few weeks ago. I've got my new Tonic scissors and some Klingon so I will be setting about mounting them shortly. I've also indulged in the clear alphabet and sentiment stamps I found in Wilkinsons, very reasonably priced.There's also a transfer of Emiline Pankhurst leftover from the doors  project. I'd like to incorporate this into something not sure what as yet. At the top left are a couple of files which I am using to put my stamps in. I've tried various storage systems and have returned to this idea since I found these ring binders with four rings and some good quality punched pockets. I use laminated card to put the stamps on. I find this method works for me as the stamps are easy to locate. It would probably be an even better idea to stamp out the sheet before laminating and to organise each file into categories, however, anyone who has followed my desk on WOYWW will know I am not that person, it'll be enough for me just to get them in the files ! Happy WOYWW everyone don't forget to enjoy the sun x

  3. Thats how I store my UMs too...and the punch pockets stop them falling off when they stop sticking to the card!! Trish #55

  4. Well I was just looking at different ways to sort my UM stamps--as a matter of fact, that's what's on my desk this week!

    Happy crafting Julie(paperpathway)#154

  6. I'm re-thinking this sort of storage AGAIN! Too lazy to put them away and then get cross if they fall off and.. urgh. Not for me. Hope you enjoy some laid back time....don't stop doing things though!
