This round in week # 108 for City Crafter challenge is "Photo Booth".
It requires you to have at least ONE photo or more in your own project.

Today I just received my graduation photos which was taken by the appointed photographer from the university. Since the graduation date, 22 Apr 2012, I have been thinking to do a scrapbook layout for my graduation. It is fun & memorable when you look at your own achievement right? So many photos to choose but I chosen the photo from the professional. ^_^

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

Storage Idea for Clear Stamps

Today I am going to share about my own storage idea for clear stamps.

Previously I used to store my clear stamps in a plastic containers (see below picture). I found it difficult for me to search my clear stamps when I really wants to use it.

I did search how can I store my clear stamps nicely. Of course, there is also manufacturer have invented and also crafters have their own way to store it.

Since, I live in Malaysia and always wanted things within my budget, I have this idea in my mind.

All you need is .....

1. DVD folder (it can be plastic / paperboard)
2. DVD plastic sheet (Must be thick enough to carry your clear stamps)
3. Rigid film (easily available at any local stationery shops)

Why I need rigid film because previously I cut it into individual pieces. Now, I cut the rigid film according to the DVD plastic folder size (which is slightly smaller) & place my clear stamps on it. The clear stamps is easily stick on it. Another usage is sometimes I get these clear stamps is without the protector for the stamping area. So, I used it as another protector.

Note: Please handle rigid film with care as the corner is quite sharp. 

Here is my sample of storage idea for clear stamps in economical way.

Have fun!
