Kim Reygate's studio
Kim (above) is one of the best stampers I know and has a true amazing studio full to the celieng with stamps, ink pads and card, every stamper dream,.
Kim keeps her stamps in A3 plastic envelopes, like the one above, and then stack all the envelopes on top of each other, in a few shelves. kim has over forty different plastic envelopes which if you multiply the 16 large stamps that fit in each envelope works up to an enormous amount.
Another great idea of Kim is to keep sort them into categories (an envelope will have flowers, another one trees...) and then photocopy their images. Those copies then go into a folder which acts like a catalog of all the rubber stamps she has.
Other stuff includes a large ammounts of embossing powders (above to the left), on going projects for different companies, each in a different 12 x 12" plastic box (above photo to the right).
Magazines in holders (above, this is just a tiny section, it goes all round two walls of the studio).
All sorts of ink pads sorted by type in the middle shelf of an Ikea unit. Also Kim displays her new acquisitions in those shelves which are quite prominent.
