Stamp storage. It's a common question and a common problem for all of us! I love that Stampin' UP! packages it's clear and photopolymer stamps in Clear Mount DVD cases. It works very conveniently with the Ikea Mosslanda Picture Ledges I installed in my craft room (see images at end of post) specifically for this
purpose. Okay, okay, I did not install them, but Mr. Super Stamp Girl did a mah-velous job while I offered enthusiastic moral support in the form of chocolate chip cookies and beer.
But, what about ALL those stamps that simply come in plastic sleeves?
This is the system that I have found works best for me:
Yup, just shamelessly showing off all my new Lawn Fawn loot here. . .
I purchase the Stampin' UP! Clear Mount stamp cases:
I separate the two plastic pieces from the stamp set. It kind of irritates me how well they cling to each other! So, I separate one layer of plastic and adhere the stamp set to the paper backing it came with.
Here is the stamp set adhered to it's paper backing in a Stampin' UP! clear mount case:
I cut a 5 x 7" piece of magnet roll to fit the size of the case:
I use Sookwang Score Tape adhered to the back of the magnet roll to attach the magnet to the case:
Now the dies stick to the magnet roll and are always stored with their coordinating stamp set.
Then I go to the company website and print out an image of the stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock:
This image will slide into the front of the clear mount case:
Here are my stamps stored on the Ikea Mosslanda Picture Ledges in my craft room. I purchased 15 of the 36" ledges and have nearly all of my stamps on wall display. I like being able to see what I have and it offers very easy access for both finding them and putting them away. Plus, these are very streamlined and modern looking, which I love!
In case you were wondering, I store my stamps by theme. For instance there is a row of flower stamps, a row of beach themed stamps, and three rows of Christmas stamps!
How do YOU store your stamps?
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
