Stash and chipboard storage (or not)...

Well yesterday afternoon turned out to be a nice day!! I got stash! And not one parcel but two! :)) One of my orders from the US turned up. Some chipboard letters, packs of rub-ons, brads, stickers and lots of yummy Urban Lily paper including these two really cool sheets where you cut them up and make them into cute little minibooks...

Also I got April's Scrap-Room kit! Yum, yum, yum! I really liked this one. The photo does not do it justice at all. Honestly! Can't wait to scrap with them...

Then there was the embellishment add-on for the kit. Goes great with the SEI papers etc. And who can resist some funky flowers!!

And finally the month's stamps. And yes I say stampS. It does look like one stamp doesn't it? But it's really cleverly made so it's actually three stamps in one. The frame is a stamp by itself, so is the "top ten" and the numbered list. This could be soooo useful...

We've had a chipboard storage discussion on a forum I'm on. How do YOU store your chipboard? I'd love, love, love it for you to leave a comment on this post and tell me - thank you :)

It all comes in different "awkward" packagings, doesn't it? Little packs with chipboard embellishments in different sizes... Then you have the coloured sheets of Heidi Swapp alphabets... "Undressed/nude" sheets of chipboard shapes and alphabets from companies like Bazzill, Fancy Pants etc...all in different sizes.

I have to confess to not having a good solution to storing mine... I have some small packets of chipboard letters here and there, a pack of Heidi Swapp hearts just next to my keyboard as I type this (lacking good idea of where to keep it!) and sheets of alphabets in a cardboard box (and not even a nice one...a plain old brown cardboard box with the flaps cut off ) together with my stamps in flat packs (like Autumn Leaves etc)... *confession time over*

Can't help on the chipboard storage because mine is just in a grip seal bag.

Had to comment on those scrummy flowers with the Scraproom kit. I've got mine today and those flowers are my absolute favourite item.

Glad some of your parcels have turned up, I'm still waiting.
My chipboard storage is just boring re-sealable food bags. I've got some 12" sheets that I just don't know how to keep together?!? Where do you get the pizza boxes from that people use for posting?

I keep my Chipboard in piles of the same shape in stacks then in a Ikea Wooden Drawer where I keep al my crafty stash (I have over 40 of these drawers stacked in my scrap area). It keeps them fairly tidy and easy to see!

I have a photo on my blog somewhere. I just bought some of those tip out bins from QVC, but they are too small. Darn!
