Just letting you know, when you hop on over here to see my posts now, you will notice a name change on the banner. I am still making and using my journals, but I want to get back into more memory keeping and stamping as that is my passion also. I have neglected it a lot lately. I will have my regular tutorials and posts for you, to continue my love of junk journaling, stamping and memory keeping!!
Anyway………………….as I have been sorting my stamps, destashing some and changing a few things around in my scrap space. I thought you might like to see how it is set up now………………….. I have been a stamper for a long time and when I first started with Stampin’ Up! there were only wooden stamps!!!!
I had some of my stamps in cases some in pockets and I still have a few wood stamps which I love. I have them all my cling and rubber stamps in these five binders and they are dived into the Catagories I chose. I have a lot of Flowers, Birds, Butterflies, Bees, Dragonflies, Backgrounds, Journaling stamps for my scrapbooking, Sentiments for my card making, plus Tag stamps etc. My Misc section is for the few Kids, and Seasons/Celebration stamps that I have.
To make them above so the stamps stick, I stamped them on to white cardstock or used the image acetate that came with them. I used cardstock as it is sturdier than copy paper. After I stamped and sorted them I put them into A4 laminating pouches, then through my laminator and I store them in heavy-duty page protectors. As you can see they are easy to see and find by just flicking through the binder. I used the large strong two ring clip binders. I can just take the binder to my desk or just take the stamp or page out that I want.
I have lots of different stamp brands and I just wanted them all together and not the company that made them. Of course, you can store yours the way it suits you 🙂 My stamps sit on the laminated surface and they stick to it, as they all clear or rubber cling stamps.
This process has taken me a few days, but I am very happy with the result and that I will be able to find the stamps I am looking for, destashed some I don’t use and that they are stored securely also. I would love to hear how you store your stamps also 🙂
