I'm starting on scrapbooking and want to know which die cut machine is best to start out with? And what are the best ways to keep your stamps organzied facing up or facing down and if the ink is drying out is there anything I can do to rewet them or just have to buy new ones? Thanks....

Check out this guide to die-cutting machines: http://www.archiversonline.com/media/Guide_to_diecutting.pdf. Finding the right machine for you depends on how you want to use the machine. The Cricut and eclips are great because you can manipulate the size and shape of the images on the cartridges, which can be purchased separately, to fit your crafting needs! The Big Shot and Vagabond require dies, which are sold separately, and cannot be changed. We offer a Tool Time class in our stores as well, which is a great FREE class that walks you through all sorts of the tools we carry.
Storing stamps is definitely a personal preference! It all depends on the number of stamps you have and the amount of space you have in which to store them. It doesn't matter which way you store them, that's up to you!
Some inks have reinkers that can be added to an ink pad, but that depends on the specific ink. Here's a link to the VersaMagic Inker on the Annex: http://www.archiversannex.com/Versamagic-Inker-RG/default.aspx?PageID=21&CategoryID=64&ProductID=27046&RootCatCode=11300. More can be found by searching "inker".
Hope this helps!
