Yes, another Stamping and Craft Room Re-Design share. As I was talking the other day, having items close at hand make it easier to create paper craft project in a more efficient way, because it cuts out time and frustration looking in different areas for the items that are most used in projects.
The picture to the left is from my old stamping room. This shelf, which was on the other side of the room from my work area, is where I stored my stamp sets. As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator much of the time I use only current stamp sets. Don’t get me wrong, I like many stampers and paper crafters, I still have many retired stamp sets that I just cannot part with.
TIP: If at all possible, have your stamp sets at arms reach or very near your work area. Or at least have your most favorite, most used stamp sets nearest to you. This come from a question for someone recently that asked how/where I kept my stamp sets.
However, in my new stamping and craft room re-design, I really only need my current stamp sets at easy access. So keeping with my arms reach away theme I opted to purchase another item, the Stamp Case Shelf, from Stamp-n-Storage which allows me to have my stamp sets right in front of me while I am working. This shelf works great for my clear mount and photopolymer stamp sets. Looking at the second picture and you can see that I also have a couple of wood mount sets on my shelf. I do have an area just to the left of my new work area that I store all my retired stamp sets.
