Tammy: For best mileage out of your ink pads, store your stamp pads level and upside down. This prevents uneven ink distribution, and keeps the surface fully inked.

Jan : To expand on Tammy's tip, Tim Holtz Distress Inks fit perfectly sideways in a standard recipe box. Label them to find them easily. This way you can move all your inks at once, and never accidentally knock the lids off.
Anitra : Try using different materials in your embossing folders. Using foil tape, vellum, and acetate can give a unique look to your projects. Even some chipboards can be embossed.
Kristi : If you use an electronic cutting machine, has your mat lost its stickiness? Use some washi tape to secure it to the mat! Just place piece of tape along the top and down the sides and it should work like a new mat! Be careful not to tear your paper, just peel it off slowly!
Karen : When you store your wool felt, be sure to label each color with its proper name. You can use Small Scalloped Grungy Prim Tags and a stick pin to do this. Then, when you run out of a color you love, you won't struggle to remember the name of it when it comes time to reorder more.
