I'm often asked how I store my stamps. I thought I'd do a quick post about how my stamps are stored and what organization system works best for me. First off, I try to buy only cling stamps or unmounted stamps. If they come on wood blocks, I unmount them. Basically I don't really have a trick, I just pull them off the wood and rubber mounts, so that I'm only left with the red rubber. I then create a laminate sheet, using cardstock and packing tape. This is the side that I stick the stamps to, I then stamp then on a separate sheet, as an index and attach the index onto the front of the laminate side. I stamp the index separately because if I make a mistake, it's easier to simply replace the index rather than trying to pull apart the laminate sheet. I didn't come up with this idea, How to Make Unmounted Stamp Storage Packets. This was the starting point for me. For the red rubber unmounted stamps, I put Aleene's Tack it Over & OVer, so that the rubber will stick to my stamp blocks. Now keep in mind, this is not an overnight process. I worked on this over time, and still have a bit more to do, but below is the finished project...
This way my stamps are out and easily accessible. Don't hesitate to ask me questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

  1. This is a great idea. I can do this, I think but you will have to help me put them in categories!
