Welcome to day 1 of a week filled with ideas and tips to get your crafty area organized! Today's focus is stamps, and I'm going to show you how I currently organize my clear and rubber stamps. Not only are you going to find a ton of ideas linked from the MFT Blog, you're going to be eligible to win a prize package on each of the 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash event.
I house my stamps in these roller carts that hold 12x12 covered bins. The carts are kept under my stamping table for quick access, but I've pulled them out for their photo debut.
Each of the bins is labeled in lo-tech style using washi tape and a black Sharpie marker. I happen to like this method because 1) it's quick and painless, and 2) I can easily switch labels in and out as needed.
Stamp collections are organized the way My Favorite Things categorizes them in the store. LJD is Lisa Johnson Designs and LLD is Laina Lamb Design.
Here's the rest: Die-namics Companion, Cling Rubber Backgrounds and Clearly Sentimental, per my abbreviations. Ü
Look how perfectly those background stamps fit in the 12x12 bins. Love.
I also label each stamp set with my trusty black Sharpie. Again, lo-tech, but it works for me!
Another reason these covered bins work so well for me is that they keep everything together. So in the event one of the itty bitty stamps tries to run away from its family, it'll be found sooner or later!
Stamps with a coordinating Die-namics are kept together in a plastic sleeve. You can find these sleeves in two different sizes HERE in the MFT Store.
I hope you enjoyed a tour of my stamp organization and have plans to stop back tomorrow for more ideas for getting your crafty space in order. Always keep in mind that you have to find what works for YOU, not because someone else is doing it this way or that.
Now, head on over to the MFT Blog to see what's in today's prize package. Good luck!
