Part 1 of my Scrapbook Room - My Rubber Stamps


Since so many of you have been wondering how I store my own scrapbook materials, I am writing a weekly series on organizing for your scrapbook room. First up is my rubber stamps collection...

Oh yeah, I am a stamp collector!!! So gals and guys, tell me how you store your rubber stamps. Mine sits on the shelves though it seems to be getting dusty if I don't stamp enough! Each shelf has a theme, i.e. one shelf will be for travel stamps, another for botanicals, another collage...and so forth.

SO come on, lets compare storage pictures...Looking forward to hearing from you...
