That is the question. I have over the last 11 years collected many many rubber stamps. I am actually very good about purging, donating and loving every last one of them. Ok I won't lie I still have several rubber stamps I have not used. I think part of my problem is my storage. Right now I have them in the original boxes (most of them are stampin up) and stacked in LARGE crates that fit in a closet maid cabinet. They are a bugger to dig through and by the time I find them I run out of creative juices.
I also have a BUNCH of acrylic stamps. I use these stamps a TON more. Not because they are superior to the wood mounted but because I just grab the case and use them. I think I might have more acrylic stamps than I do wood because of their ease. They are stored in a canvas bin in one of my cubbies under my scrap desk.
My dilemma. I have spent a lot of money on wood mounted stamps. I want to use them, I NEED to use them. How can I make that happen? I think quite possibly I am finally going to take the plunge and take my rubber stamps OFF the blocks and store them in CD cases. I have wanted to/ thought of doing this for years. With the downsizing of scrap area ( OK my desk is the same size but my storage is not) I think its time. I need more room to organize paper. So I am going to try it tonight. Just take the plunge! Of course it will be with an old set I wont worry much about.
Anyone with me on this?? Are you following? I am RIPPING my stamps apart...hmmmm.
