Let's start this new year off with a bang shall we????

Hi ya'll, Happy New Year!!! Did you have a nice Holiday? Santa sure was good to me this year! I got to thinking that Wendy and I should start off this new year the best way we knew how...with a DeNami give-away! Can't get better than that can we? ;)

Here's what's up for grabs...

Here's the info you need...
1.) Like DeNami on face book (let us know if you already do)
2.) Follow our little blog (let us know if you already do)
3.) Tell us how you store your DeNami stamps
That's 3 full chances to win...You have until Sunday to enter and I will randomly pick a winner next Monday so be sure to stop back by to see if you're the lucky one!

I just love my DeNami stamps and like to keep them within arms reach since I use them more than any other stamp. I use the drawer system from Sterilite and all but 1 1/2 drawers are filled with DeNami stamps. I keep them organized in a particular order so I can find everything easily, and let me tell you, that's hard to do with around 225 DeNami stamps (and that's with counting sets as one stamp)! All the holiday stamps are together in one drawer, sentiments in another drawer, petit fours in another, well, you get it. I decided to go ahead and show you my whole messy work space. I just love seeing where people make the magic happen...is that strange?? Well, anyway, I thought I'd show you mine along with how I store my DeNami goodies :)
I have tools, ribbon, misc ink pads, pencils, punches and 3 ring binders for clear stamps on the left. My cardstock is under the desk and my much loved DeNami stamps with scrap cardstock and my Cuttlebug stuff on the right. I always have a little portable table in front of the drawers on the left. There's always stamps and ribbon scattered on it from projects in the works.

Wendy says:

Now that you see how totally organized Tina is....I shame in comparison. But...in going with the whole "you show me yours I'll show you mine" thing....this is how I store my DeNami stamps:




"What is that?" you say? Well, its a "re-purposed" microfiche cabinet rescued from the library. Getting it home and up the stairs to the woman cave was no small feat let me tell you. I spray painted it white (I am thinking one day soon I may stamp on it). It is right beside my work table and literally is within arms reach. It has 4 drawers and 3 and half are already full! The top drawer is where I store my "go-to"tools and ribbon and glitters. The second drawer (top pic above) and third drawer (second pic above) hold my stamps. The bottom drawer has punches but soon will be holding stamps too!

Now for my "non Denami" (gasp - shocker that I own anything not DeNami - but shhhh I won't tell if you don't). I have a custom made cabinet that Uncle Rick made for me (I don't have a pic of it on this computer or I would show you - maybe another post) and its FULL. Think I have a slight stamping problem? HA!



Now its your turn, tell us how you store your goodies! Good luck and don't forget to use all three chances to enter.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!

  1. I also use the Sterlight drawer system for all my rubber stamps. I keep them organized by type of stamp.(words, holidays, faces,etc.) The exception are the Denami stamps which are kept in two drawers all together. Love those chickies! I use them the most and it's easier to have them all together and within reach.

  6. I store most of my Denami stamps in drawers by simple catagories of "words", "pictures" or "swirls". But some of my newest or most favorite are on a shelf right above my stamping area!

  9. Lastly...I'll take pictures of my craft space one of these days, but I keep my DeNami stamps in drawers, also. I have a whole drawer unit that's all DeNami, and another unit that's all my Christmas stuff (3 drawers are DeNami stamps). LOVE seeing the photos of your work spaces!!! Thanks also for the giveaway opportunity!

  14. Well, I am ashamed to say that my DeNami stamps are a bit abused. They do not have proper housing, I keep them in a basket. I do have a book with all of them stamped so I know exactly what I have though.

  15. Ever since the stamp show in Mesa in Nov I have been following you on facebook and your blog. Looking forward to MARCH!!!
    We have over 50 cubes, some with drawers and some shelves and cubbies and they are full between paper, stamps, ribbon, etc. There are 18 drawers of stamps and all of the holiday stamps are in boxes in the closet (I think you cannot have too many stamps) DeNami has its own drawer and will be at least 2 drawers by the end of the March show!

  21. I store my Denami stamps on a Making Memories shelf that is right within reach of my work table. It was originally designed to hold ribbon, but I removed the dowels and made it for stamps. I can readily see them and reach for them.

  22. I follow DeNami already...but 2012 new resolution to be more stamping active! I have begun by following your blogs more consistently. I have worst storage situation ever for stamps, but in process of moving blue print file to room and storing them there- similar to Tina's micrfiche file- on casters and fireproof!

  26. I keep my Denami stamps in a Sterilite drawer system too. It has 4 drawers with 3 of them filled with stamps. Mine is on wheels so it is always both portable and close to me no matter where I am doing my crafts. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! Happy New Year!!

  40. Well you ladies both have me beat on the stamp organization thing, ha! Until I get my oh so longed for Craft Room, I am VERY limited on space. So. My DeNami stamps reside in a small CD storage box (which by no means is easy to deal with!), and since my collection is growing, I have resorted to a shallow cardboard box to accommodate the overflow! Yikes. Love your drawers though...they seem so easy to find that way!

    I do have one thing that is VERY organized--my cardstock!! If you need help with that, check out my blog post on how I organized it! http://idreamcreateinspire.blogspot.com/2011/08/cardstock-organization-and-storage.html

    Thanks so much for doing this giveaway! ;-) I'll be back Sunday for the blog hop!
