Don’t you just love being organized? For some of us (me!!!!!), it feels like a goal that I’m always striving towards, but don’t always reach. And then one day the Angels sing and BOOM! It happens!! A part of my life becomes so organized that I smile every time I see it. I wish the Angels would sing every day and that my whole would be organized, but trust me, I’ll take snippets, too.
Snippets add up, too, don’t they? Maybe one day soon my whole craft room will be organized. But until then, I want to share with you my method for storing stamps and framelits. My stamp world is revolutionized because with my method, everything is in ONE place! It makes it easy to find what I need, and isn’t that the point of organization?
Why Organize your stamps?
There is a new LOVELY trend in the stamping industry. Many Photopolymer stamp sets now have matching framelits so you can easily cut them out. I used to store my framelits near my Big Shot machine. It was always a hassle to find the framelit that matched the stamp set.
How to Organize your Stamps
My process for organizing my stamps is two-fold and doesn’t really work unless you do both parts.
Part 1: The first part of my method is to adhere the stamps to the case. My Angel and friend, Kimberly Van Diepen, taught me about this. Clear Photopolymer stamps come on a sheet, in a DVD case. Kimberly advised me to adhere the sheet to the DVD case using Tear and Tape. Just a few inches down the center works. Tear and Tape is VERY sticky so you don’t need a whole lot. It is a joy to open your stamp sets and not have everything go FLYING. LOL.
Part 2: Once your stamps aren’t flying around the DVD case, you have room for your framelits. I browsed through Amazon to find a strong magnet sheet to adhere to the second side of my case. Lo and behold, I found that Amazon sells the PERFECT size magnet (no cutting needed) and it already comes with adhesive. See, I told you the Angels sing when it all comes together. Click here to see the magnets on Amazon.
I also have a short video I made showing how my system works.
I hope you enjoy!! If you have any organization tips, please don’t hesitate to send them my way!!!
