welcome back to Day 2 of the Organization Series. Yesterday we looked at the Craft Table and today we are looking at Stamp Storage. As I have mentioned many times, my craft space is limited so my tips, tricks and storage ideas are geared towards a small space, but that doesn't mean you can't apply these strategies to a larger space.
I store my stamps in these 3L boxes by Really Useful Boxes. They fit the Avery Elle Stamp Storage pockets perfectly. I organize my stamps by brand – but feel free to do what works for you – theme, type, whatever! My dividers are simply white cardstock that measures 5 3/4 x 8. I labeled them with my label maker. My stamps are labelled with the company name and stamp name as well.
All stamps are not made in the same size although most of them are. The exceptions are background stamps, Tim Holtz, Paper Artsy, and some companies make bigger sets sometimes. I store them in these ikea bins. If I had a bigger area, I would store them separately, but since I don't have many of these stamps and not enough space, they “share a room”.
To keep up with storing my stamps, I have this box here. My label maker is stored in the front and I also store my stamp and die storage pockets, along with the panels that go inside them. The panels that go behind the stamps so you can see them better, measure 7 x 5 1/2 inches. I always have about 20 precut so I can store quickly and easily when new product arrives.
