Welcome to Week #18 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour. Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about a Distress Ink Pad Storage Tins, so be sure to check it out.
This week we are moving onto a new topic…
Week 18: Stamp Set Organizers
I am a big fan of the Close To My Heart Stamp Set Organizers and have used these for many years now. I love them because they are nice and compact, easy to carry, easy to transport, and because I can store other things in them too.
Way back when Close To My Heart use to categorize Stamp Sets by theme: Spring, Holidays, Outdoor, etc. I had purchased a box for each category. Over the years as CTMH has gotten away from the ‘categories’ in their Idea Books (only), I have too. I now store my Stamps Sets by which catalog they belong to. Not really the most ideal, but for now it works.
I like to keep all of my Alphabet Stamp Sets together in one box. This makes it easy when I just want to add letters to my projects. I also like to keep any Story by Stacy Stamps in one box (not shown in the photo). Then I basically store the rest of my ‘current’ Stamps by catalog, which I mentioned above. I’m not really sure why I do this but it works for now. My system may change when the new Annual Idea Book arrives this summer. Afterall, I’m always on the lookout for the next best organizational rework that will work for ME and currently I’m on the search for something better.
Just a quick note about why these little boxes are great…
- Sturdy, see-through plastic case.
- Features a hinged flip-up lid with carrying handle.
- Holds up to 15 CTMH Stamp Sets, or a few extra if you remove the foam piece inside each envelope.
I know that many people store their Stamp Sets differently and I’d love to see how you store yours! Simply snap a photo of your Stamp Set storage and drop it in an email to me. I love to be inspired as much as you do.
