Anyways...to cut to the chase, I found me a workable Stamp Pad Storage solution! I found it on Scrapbook.com & it's called the Poratink Standard Case from Best Craft Organzier . They also have the Portaink Dual Swivel Traveler from Best Craft Organzier. It is very similar to the SU's Color Caddy. The Stampin' Pad fits perfectly inside! There's also a storage area on top for the ink refills, etc. If you have other stamp pads such as Versa Mark, Brilliance, Staz On, etc. --there's a standard ink pad insert that you can purchase sepeartly (if desired) -- and because they're smaller than the Stampin' Pad, you can put the inserts in the case so that the ink pad doesn't go all the way in the back where you can't get it out.
I couldnt wait to put my new storage to use...so here it is!!
