Anyway, I noticed that my unmounted stamps are pretty much bulging out of my current containers and are difficult to go through. I know stamp storage has been addressed a bazillion times in a bazillion different places, but I'd love to hear how you manage yours.
Here's my 'system', to use the term loosely:
If I get them packaged with the company info I usually keep them in the packaging and toss them in the basket on the left (larger ones) or the container on the right (smaller ones). I like knowing at a glance who made them. If they're still too big I wedge them between the basket and the jewel cases which contain the stamps that don't come in sturdyish packaging. My plan is to get 3 matching (wouldn't that be nice?!) bins in the near future.
As soon as I get them I stamp the image on a piece of paper and slip it into this binder which is jammed full of 9-pocket page protectors and regular page protectors. Once upon a time they were organized in here by theme, but then I started keeping some of them together by manufacturer and then I just started filling in empty slots. Oops. Looks like another organization project to add to the list...
I also have 'swatches' of every ink pad, embossing powder, Distress Paints and Stains, and Stickles in this binder. The front has samples of most of my punches and somewhere else in my room (still working on the cleaning!) is a binder full of samples of all of the dies I have. I suppose it doesn't do me a whole lot of good if I don't where it is. LOL...yes, the organization project is not going to be a one-day deal.
I'm not sure this works for me anymore. It's kind of a pain to rifle through these baskets when I'm looking for a specific stamp. The up-side of this system though is that I often find stamps that I've forgotten about.
What works for you?
