I have been putting off buying this because of the expense and also not sure if I wanted to go this route or use CD cases. I have the CD cases and finally broke down and bought this binder. I love it! I also like the CD cases for some things, like smaller stamps and also my older clear Anna Griffin stamps. Some of the Anna Griffin's don't like to stick so they at least are contained inside the case. That is also why I like the zippered binder. If stamps do fall off they don't get lost. I also love the embossed cover. I'm afraid I will be filling this up soon and will have to come up with the money for another one.
After watching Tim Holtz online video showing him paint this binder and also giving details on using the pockets inside, I couldn't wait to get one -- but scrapbook.com was the ONLY place to find it, and I was glad!!! This binder zips so your stuff can't get wet in the rain; pockets will hold plenty of stamps both inside and on the outside; if you let the stamps stick to the outside of pockets, the inside will hold sample sheets & examples. I've already ordered more pockets & plan to fill the whole notebook. I'm relieved to finally have a good storage place for clear stamps. This is IT!
I was really happy to find this here at a discount. This high-quality leather binder holds about 8-10 Stampers Anonymous sets or the same amount of the sold separately pockets filled with other cling or clear stamps. You could also put a lot of dies in here. I love that it zips up all the way around. I will probably go with the EZ mount system however just because the pages fit in any three ring binder, which makes it much more affordable. I'd rather have these, though- they are so nice!
I like how rugged this binder is and use it to store all my over-sized stamps . . . which seems to be on the increase. I store my stamps on the inside, but have heard you can also store them on the outside . . . either way the zippered case keeps them safe!
I have one for Tim's stamps, one for other designers stamps, but since I seem to be becoming a PaperTreyInk addict . . . I'm going to need another in the near future!
Love Tim Holtz!
I now own four of Tim Holtz' stamp binders and maybe I will be getting some more. I divided them into storage for all my alphabet stamp sets, for Tim Holtz stamps, for my clear stamps and for my masks and stencils.
The binder looks great, is sturdy and holds a lot. The binder mechanism opens and closes accurately. I had binders from other manufacturers in hand that were just wobbly, but this one is great.
