It's a Party!!!!

Hi! Little Monkeys (StoreMoreStamps.com) is having their first birthday and you get the presents!!! If you haven't checked out the Store More Stamps storage system yet, you are in for a treat. This unique system gives you the room to store you fabulous stamp collection in a fun and efficient way!. Check out the horrific way I kept my stamps before. Mostly contained in these photo storage boxes, but not in any order and certainly not easy to find.



Here are the my swanky Cat's Pajamas stamp sets, I kept them in the original packaging so I could find them:)




Now look at their fabulous new digs. All nice and neat and easy to find, does life get much better than organized stamps, I think not:)



I have been so excited to share this super fun project with you to help celebrate Little Monkeys 1st Birthday. You know the swankiest stamp company on the block had to be involved in the whole deal. Alma from the The Cat's Pajamas, sent the whole DT uber cool birthday stamps to play with and some to give away to you, my dear blog readers.



I made this super fun and very cool gift card holder for the party! The gift holder is made from a kit that you can get at PaperAddiction.com.



Want to make your very own? It's going to cost you....



Take a minute to go leave a little love on both the Little Monkey's blog and The Cat's Pajamas Blog then come back and tell me how many clear stamps you have and would like to store in a more efficient way (I have more than I can tell my DH about:) What's in it for you???

So start leaving those comments my stamping friends, you have until Sunday, November 16 at midnight!

Aren't you glad you stamped by today!

oh my goodness, what a cute gift card holder!!

Soooo, I have to admit how many clear sets I own? Goodness, probably 40 sets? Maybe more-- I don't really know, but I do know I need a more efficient way to store them. Mine looks like your before picture--LOL.

I've enjoyed looking around on your blog---you do great work!

Fun gift card holder and great blog candy that I would love to win! I've purchased several of the Cats PJ swanky sets at a Spring stamp show and probably have 30 large sets of clear stamps and numerous mini sets. Of course I also have binders full of loose rubber and then large shelves full of traditional sets as I've been stamping for 20 years. I've tried one method of storing the clear stamps but it is not quite working out so I'll have to look into the system you recommend. Thanks for the info.

Julie said...

Love your card holder. I have over 100 if I count the $1 ones 65 if I don't, I have way to many, and most haven't even seen ink....eeek, I'm working on it though. :)

I just started to purchase clear stamps I have 12 mini sets and 5 larger ones. I have been storing them in clear sleves in a big binder. I can see them and have easy access to them. I do like the fact that they don't take much space and they aren't bulky like wood stamps, thus I can buy more with out having hubby say oh my look at all those stamps. He loves to see my work and says I look so peaceful making things with them.

I guess I am way behind in my clear sets as I only have 7! And your stash looks pretty massive! LOL!But it would still be nice to have an organized way to store the ones I do have.
Anyway, would be great to win this as I love the cats pajama's!
And that gift card holder is soooo cute!
Thanks Laura!

Jessie/knightrone said...

Super cute Laura..love it!!

StampinCathy said...

Love this!! I probably have around 30...maybe more. Thanks

Shannon Roberts said...

I have been dying to try this system out & well add to my collection! I only have maybe 5 clear stamp sets but I have 20+ Bellas & about 15 Riley's!! Thanks for this chance at such GREAT Stuff!!!

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

clear stamps or stamp sets. I have 27 pkgs (including singles and sets)

I left messages on both blogs and LOVE your project!

Sherrie Conner said...

Hi Laura!! Wow! Great giveaway! I have 18 large stamp sets, and 22 small stamp sets. I keep them in one of those small, 3 drawer plastic containers, in their original packaging. They stay nice and clean, but boy, are they hard to thumb through!!
Thanks for this chance to win some goodies!

Marisa said...

Ok Laura! You have brought me into a new addiction!!! I love all of your work! The card holder is great! It was nice to finally meet you!

Wow! Awesome blog candy and amazing projects. I just found your blog today and have bookmarked it - I'll be visiting often.

I've only started collecting clear stamps in the past year or so - probably have 12 sets (not counting my first TCP sets that are on their way) and a few individuals. I'm also thinking about unmounting my rubber stamps (too many to even estimate) to save on storage space. THe Little Monkeys system looks really cool.

Jacqueline said...

I have a lot of unmounted stamps, I have no storage for any of them! I have about 30 unmounted stamps!

Michelle said...

Hi Laura, I am new to the stamping world and look forward to learn. I currenttly store all my stamps in a plastic container. I have about 30 different sets and looking for more. I receltly took one of your classes so I am hooked and inspired by all the wonderful creations you post on your blog.
Thanks for all the cute cards your share with us.

mochamama said...

I love these projects laura!!!!!!!! Whatever clear stamps I own, aprox 4 sets, fit in to one medium sized SU clear stamp case, along with two clear blocks! But that is going to change cause I've got three sets in the mail as we speak! hehe

alma said...

I don't want to say how many clear sets I own. It's embarrassing! I just want to say how wonderful this card holder is. Just ADORABLE!

maiahs_momma said...

I have at least 40 sets, of the clear stamps and that doesn't include the Michael's Studio G sets. Just need a better way of storing them all...that is a good price too.
LOVE that project you did...would love to see the tutorial for it :)!


Hugs,

I've only got one set of real clear acrylic stamps. Oh wait - plus the 3 I just ordered from GinaK Designs last night. Okay, so that's 4 sets. But I've got a ton of Unity stamps and those definitely need some great storage! I'm not sure how many that is individually. Especially since all the ones on order aren't here yet.
Can I plead insanity?

Jennifer Scull said...

oh my - actually COUNT each and every one of them?! as they are scattered all throughout my stamp room because I don't have any cool way to store them, this may take me a while! ;) but really, I have about 35 sets. can you tell I really NEED to get over to Little Monkey?! :)

Zgirl said...

Gosh-I hate to admit this but I have well (well) over 100 sets. But to my credit I have about 10 wooden sets. I'm a CTMH consultant and I'm my biggest client. =) I'm always looking for ways to organize my sets. Right now I have one of those storage towers from Lowes which works pretty well for most of the small to medium size sets. Great gift card holder. Naz

Angel said...

love your work! those luggage tags are way cool!

Lisa j said...

Um....I think I have over 60 clear sets and probably 50 more single stamps that need a more organized home. It makes me crazy to get my stamps out.....even though they are fairly organized. I've had my eye on the little monkey set for a while now. It would be great to win....and I would love the Cat's pajama's set. I have a few of theirs and I love them. I love the gift card holder too!!!! Great Job!! Thanks!

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

I have more unmounted stamps sets then I want to think about. I'm always looking for a new way to organize them. You're little holder is so beautiful. Love all of the details.

Susan Joyce said...

Love your little gift bag holder, it's so adorable. I have just purchased some stamps from The Cat's Pyjamas, and haven't received them yet, can't wait till they arrive. I have about 40 clear stamp sets and have been looking for a solution as to house them. This might be it. Thanks for the opportunity for some blog candy.

Tracy B. said...

I actually have 21 clear stamp sets with at least 7 individual stamps on each. Whew!! I never knew I had that much;) Well, they just sit in their original pkg one on top of the other. Not very convenient OR neat...the pile usually falls over at least once when I look for what I need. UGH@#!
I loved the gift holder. Thanks for sharing. !Feliz Cumpleanos Monos! jerryb17011@yahoo.com

Kat Gomez.. said...

Hi Laura.. well I have so many I don't know where to begin..I'm gonna guess over 100 !! I really do love clear stamps.. this is what I started stamping with so it's was kinda hard to use the wood bound stamps but I do really like that they have the easy mount now,there's always some rubber stamps out there I can't resist.. thanks for the chance to win .. tu amiga Kat

Pegg S said...

I think I have about 30 clear stamp sets! I love the quality of most of the brands and they all fit in a little bin. Not the greatest way so I'm intrigued by the Little Monkey system! THanks for the chance!!

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

left some love! And i dont even know how many clear stamps i have! A LOT! And i need 1 continuous place to store them because right now they are EVERYWHERE! :)

Jaclyn (turtlescrapper) said...

Love the gift card bag & holder - what a great idea!!! Nice organization too - mine are all in CD cases in alphabetical order on a lazy susan cd holder. Hope I win!

I started counting and quit at 67. That was only from 2 of the 4 places I store my clear stamps. Thank goodness hubby is not going to read this lol. I was so upset to go to Cat's Pajamas and find out I missed out on free shipping{{boo}}
So happy to find your blog!!!

willa said...

I have over 100 clear stamps and i would love to organize them but do not know how, in clear ampty cd cases perhaps?

jules p said...

I have 45 big sets. And tons of little ones. I wish I did have great way to organize them. :)

Robin said...

Great giveway! I have over 100 sets and I am using baseball card inserts to keep them in - not working too well. Hoping to get the Little monkeys set so my stamps will stop falling out.

leenda said...

WOW! Fabulous blog candy! I have 25sets of clear stamps. I'm trying cd cases but this looks much better. I love CP stamps & the gift card holder is an added bonus. I left comments on both blogs like you asked. That was much better than asking some crazy question like my favorite color!

dannette said...

Hi Laura, I think I have probably 12 clear stamp sets. I dont have any storage for them, so needless to say, I need some help! Would love to win the fab candy!
Hugs, Dannette

JOAN said...

I have around 75 sets and I need desperately a more efficient way to organize them. I spend so many time looking for a set that after I find it my inspiration is gone LOL!!

BTW, loved your card holder. I am going to try it for a Christmas gift. Thanks for the inspiration.

Cat said...

well, i'm not home right now [what would we do without laptops?] so i can't actually count, but i'd *guess* i have maybe 30 clear sets... with a few odd singles ;) i just LOVE your project, and i AM glad i stopped by today :)

JeanFB said...

Wow, what wonderful blog candy! I have a little over 20 sets of clear stamps (not including the $1 variety), plus the equivalent of about 10 sets of unmounted red rubber stamps. Thanks so much for the opportunity to get them organized!

Justine said...

You have made some great projects. Glad I found ya. I'm sure I'll be a regular

Olde Country Creations said...

Your projects are fantastic!! I have about 30 clear stamps but hundreds of unmounted stamps that are stored in CD cases right now. The Little Monkeys system looks awesome!! I would love to try it out.

Jennifer (SCS: jennifer-g) said...

Oh, this is sooo cute! Wow, you did an amazing job.

Um, how many clear sets do I have....you don't see my DH anywhere do you? heehee. I would guess it's about 40 right now. In CD cases...definitely takes up a lot of space!

Laurie in MN said...

Hi,

I have over 30 packs, some individual, others in sets. I am reluctant to pull them out of the package because I don't like the hassle of putting them away; the sheet gets stuck on the sticky flap that closes the package. Your system looks like that would no longer be a problem.

Our local stamp store, that closed last year, carried the wooden block Cat's Pajama stamps. It is so nice to see they come in clear stamps and sets which means less cost and less space.

Have a good day.

Pearlann66 said...

OH gosh stamp math time!!
I would guestimate I have about 30 um sets, and probably around 80 single UM stamps. that is scary when I think about it. and no they are not very organized at all. so I really need a better way to get them all accounted for.
thanks for the chance to win big!

Molly said...

Oh wow, Laura! You did such a wonderful job! :D I love how you are storing your stamps! :D
