I was wondering...

I love all of the stamps and dies, but for the price, how often do you really use them? Just wondering how others felt about it.

Well.....I buy them because they are so cute, but then end up never using them or a least hardly ever. I tell myself that I will use them on scrapbook pages, but I never do. I very rarely make cards, just for birthdays and Christmas. So for me they are a waste of money. LOL

I have hundreds of dollars worth of stamps and dies for that matter that I haven't even used once.  I love them and say I'll use them but don't.  I believe most of my problem is my organization of them, ugh... I need to get this figured out, lol!  Sorry, I am not of much help...

Ok, so I am not alone! Thank you for responding! As far as organizing, I've found that Thin Stuftainers work perfectly. There are thicker ones that would probably work for wood block stamps too. The clear stamps stick to the plastic of the container and don't slide around (for the most part). They sell them at Cherry on Top too.

Great Idea.  Thanks for sharing. I am getting more into stamps.

Oh, I'll have to check those out!  Thank you :)

I have quite a few stamps and really try hard to use them!
The word stamps are really useful!

i love them, i collect them both, but rarely use them.

right now I am working on DD's Band albums and I am using the musical dies over and over!

Stamps, I have spent a fortune on them and now I am trying to sell them at quite a loss....

I have a regular Sizzix and a Sidekick and dies for both...mostly just sitting in the drawer, because it is work to get them out and use them. I think if I had table space to leave it out I would use them more.  I also have tons of stamps, but they are not the first thing I reach for when I am doing a layout.  I do like the word stamps and the letters for titles.

I love die cuts and have many off them.  Mostly used for making cards.  I have die cut words also and use them when possible and not so many stamps.

Where can I look at stamps? I would buy a few for myself, just looking for something like that.
