My Stamping Space

Today I wanted to share my stamping space in a video that was recorded several years ago. ...My hairstyle has changed a bit. ;) There is more storage furniture in the studio now but you'll get the idea of how I organize my supplies.  Hopefully, you'll get some ideas that may be helpful to you.

Enjoy the video and let me know if you have questions!
