Stampin’ Pad Storage Solution. When the new style Stampin’ Pad was revealed at OnStage in April, we were told that Stampin’ Up! were working on a new storage solution for them. Although they DO fit in the, now retired, Caddy, they are not a snug fit, so it is not the ideal solution. So I thought, time for a temporary storage solution, just until the new one is launched.
The great thing about this storage solution is that the main construction uses packaging! This means that it is FREE!! Which is always a plus. Now, you can use one of your pieces of 12 x 12 Cardstock, but I do like to use packaging if I can, and the card used to back our Designer Series Papers is stronger than the cardstock, so is best for this.
I have got mine stacked up, 3 on the bottom, and 2 on top of them. I have had them like this for a while now, and they are holding up well. Being in this storage solution also means that if I want to take just one Colour Family with me to class or Coffee & Card, then I can just pick it up and go. They need to lie on their back for travel, but at least they are self-contained.
I covered mine with Designer Series Paper that matches the Colour Family. As the Papers are on offer at the moment I am happy to use them this way, and am really happy with how the storage solution turned out. Stampin’ Up! will have to come out with something pretty special for me to change over, but I am sure they will!!
The storage solution is also a great idea if you are thinking of joining my Team of Sunflowers. It will be perfect for you to store your new Colour Family of Stampin’ Pads in. Remember, you only have until the end of this month to join up with me and get that really amazing joining offer, so don’t hang about too much longer.
