Blog Post #3 from vacation...My travel stamp kit.

I rarely travel without some sort of stamping paraphernalia, but it is rare for me to actually do anything with my stamps when we are traveling so I had decided that I wasn't going to take them on our Spring Break trip. Well, at the very last minute, I changed my mind and thank goodness that I did. I actually got to make several projects while we were gone thanks to several rainy days.

So here is a quick run-down of what I took with us (in case you want to pack a quick travel stamping bag.)

The little red and brown bag on the right was the bulk of my stash. I picked up this bag recently from Michaels. They had them on clearance for less than $10 and I figured it was a really compact easy way to carry all those little items.  

For this trip, this is what it held from the aerial view:
*a cup that holds: scissors, pencil, glue pen, 2 pixie glitter sticks, 6 watercolor pencils, paper piercer, waterbrush, brown and black zig writers, metal ruler
*punches: 3 martha stewart border punch, 1 small scallop circle punch, corner rounder
*tin full of multi-colored brads including silver, copper, and black
*pop dots
*card of MM ribbon
*4 Unity background cassette stamps
*approximately 6-10 mini scrapbook paper pad collections...these are good because they have lots of variety, are compact, and usually have matching cardstocks in them too (this time they were... a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 K&Company pad, 2- 6x6 basic grey pads, 4x6 SEI pad, 2- 6x6 MM pads, 2- MM 8x8 collections, DCWV green mini pad, and 2 different journaling pads-one was MM and the other was Websters Pages)
*Fabri Tac
*several mini colorbox cat's eye inkpads
*push pad
*watercolor pencils

The exterior pockets held:
*B-sized Unity handle
*3 more Unity stamp cassettes
*Black StazOn inkpad
*Brown memories inkpad
*Martha Stewart brown twill
*more random brads

My eco-chic bag carried:
*My fiskars cutter
*ATG glue gun
*4 containers of Unity stamps 
*several sheets of 8 1/2 x11 cardstock white and kraft 
*my 12x12 glass cutter base which is perfect to use as a lap desk anywhere

And of course, I never go anywhere (not even on errands) without a few idea magazines and books....

This is funny because my family calls me the ultimate bag lady. At any given time I have 6 or 7 bags ready to go out the front door. They either have knitting, cross-stitching or quilting in them. I'm interested in the cases you have your stamps in. what are they and where did you get them?
