There were some questions about how I store my actual stamps so I thought I would take a few pictures to share with you. Since I started "investing" in stamps my storage has fluctuated over the years. Partly because I wasn't happy with the orginal storage and partly because my "investment" has grown. LOL! I am sure yours has too.
I try to buy my storage systems on sale whenever possible. More money for stamps, ink and papers.
Here. Beside that is a cart also on casters for easy movement.
The bottom cart currently has paper, stickers, and embroidery floss in it's containers. The two smaller cabinets on top of the wood cabinets were finds at a Goldings store, they contained thread for sale in the store, now they contain wood stamps. Next is a peak inside the wood cabinets.
I also have a couple a fixture that I bought when a local scrapbook store went out of business. It turns and has four sides that has different storage possibilities for each side. I will show you the side with shelves where I keep stamps that I want to have close to my table workspace.
here. I found mine at an Archiver's store.
I like storing my clear sets in these because if some of the clear stamps fall off their backing, they are in this container and are easily found. So these are pictures of the clear and cling stamps stored in those containers.
I keep most of them in the magazine rack but some are on the fixture I showed before with the shelves.
The last thing I have to show you is a fixture bought when a stamp store went out of business.
I keep a collection of goodies on it and I change it around quite a bit.
As you can see from my storage pictures I have been a fan of Hero Arts for quite a while!
So it's always a work in progress. But just wanted to share with you some of my storage ideas.
And one last thought, if any of you know a reality show that would come in and give you a craft room makeover please feel free to send in my name. LOL! I dream about my perfect space quite often.
If you have pictures of your storage I would love for you to leave a link in the comment section below.
