organization: stamp storage


Today's organization topic: stamps. The heart of my creating. The tool I use on pretty much every single project I make! I adore stamps!


Most of my stamps live in plastic bins that are intended for refrigerator storage. They work well for holding the stamp sets, especially when the stamps are in these pockets.

These plastic pockets, available in the MFT Stamps store, come in large and small sizes. I really like that I can also slip any coordinating die templates into the pocket. I find it helps me keep track of my images better.

I sort my stamps by topics that make sense to me: 
Sentiments
Florals
Background-clear and red rubber
Birthday
Cute coloring images
Valentine's Day
Halloween
Holiday
Winter
Fall
Travel
Random

You can see some of the stamps sitting on a shelf next to my desk in my office. The majority of the stamps are in baskets behind my chair, within reach. I cannot show you that view, too many secret products living over there. :D

I do keep my new release stamps in a basket on my desk. While, this may not be something you need, I do find that if I keep my favorite stamps, or stamps that I want to use soon, in sight, I actually use them. And yes, that is the March release in the basket. :D

For my red rubber background stamps, I use a large refrigerator bin and then on the left I found a new basket. The basket is plastic and from Target. The look of it makes me much happier! While it needs to be functional, I do like my storage to be pretty. The basket on left from Target comes in several colors.

Great storage. I bought the plastic pockets a while ago. Now I just have to make the time to actually get the stamps in them. :)
