Well I've always heard that the 3rd day after an accident or surgery is the worst - I sure felt it on Wed & was lucky to be walking (the bruise that showed up on my back is over a foot long - yikes). So I'm posting some of my favorite projects and how I store my growing collection of Unity Stamps
I store the Kit of the Months (that arrive as sheets of rubber to punch out) keeping them together. I've thought about breaking them apart by type & as my stash gets bigger I may evolve to that. But for now the cheapest way I've come up with is buying a package of those clear plastic report covers with slider bar that I used in school (oh so many years ago). I take one of the clear pages & put a piece of cardboard between with some adhesive. Then I add my stamps. To make it sturdier I insert this into the heavier plastic report covers that I use like a file. I've tried several different kinds & found the Avery ones from Krogers to be the best & cheapest at less than a dollar.
These "files" are stored in a basket & I can thumb thru them quickly.
The sets of stamps are packaged in these cute kraft envelopes. I cut one of those clear plastic report covers in half & adhere a piece of cardboard between for sturdyness. I've also found acrylic sheets or shrinky-dink sheets work better but are more expensive. I then adhere the stamps & slide them back in original envelopes. I also keep them in a long narrow basket (this one was one of 3 in a set at Walgreens)
Fianlly the wood mount stamps are hung on a repurposed cd rack with binder rings.
As money permits I hope to change to the storage cases Unity sells... but for now this works.
I really am sorry I wasn't able to scrap today.... here's my favorite stamp in action on a layout.
I love Unity journaling stamps they are huge & the designs add a lot of flair to any project. Giving plenty of space to write while adding interest. Check all the great designs here in the store.

Finally I thought I would share some news that tickled me to death.... I was published in the December issue of Scrapbook Trends (first time in paper print) - There's some Unity on this layout.... bottom left corner I used several stamps to spell out "friends for life" (sorry didn't have the original back yet from ST to take a photo of the stamping)
