Stamp and Punch Storage

Sorry  that I haven’t posted lately, I’ve been working like crazy and now I have a nasty ear infection. Fun fun.

So here as promised is a look at my stamp and punch storage.

Here is my favorite way of storing my stamp sets and Spellbinders Dies. Avery 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 sheet protectors and binders from Staples. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I have about 15 of them, all broken into different categories.

Here is one of my Pink by Design Sentiment Stamp Binders. I belong to the PBD Stamp of the Month Club…(love it) so I have a couple of binders full of sentiments.

I just added a piece of Velcro to each top to keep them closed. It’s so easy to just flip through each one and pick the one that I want.

For my single stamps I found this Crop in Style Binder at one of the local Thrift shops for $2….what a steal !!!
It even had all the original inserts in it.

I just added some extra Hockey card holders into it and slid in my single stamps. These are my Stamping Bella Stamps they fit perfectly into the pockets.

I keep all my wood mounted stamps (or at least the one’s that I haven’t unmounted) in a 12 x 12 Iris Scrapbook Case that I got at Michaels.

I also use them for all of my paper punches, these are some of my Martha Stewart Halloween punches. I love how they fit and I can clearly see the one that I want to use.

Here are my cases of stamps and punches, I have them in several colors and broken into categories. 

More of my craft area storage

Here are some more pictures of my craft area and the ways that I try to keep organized.

This is my Cropper Hopper Rolling Organizer which I purchased from Michaels. It was 50% off then I used a 25% coupon on top of that…. can’t beat that.

The first few drawers have some of my tools like my Corner Chomper, popdots, adhesives, double sided tapes. Then a drawer for stamping stuff….blocks, sponges, embossing pillow. The last few are for the rest of my inks.

This is the ink I use most often and it sits on top of my table in a Sizzix Die Holder that I found at a local thrift shop for $2. Can you believe it…. only $2 I couldn’t believe my eyes. Then next to that is a old cassette holder that I picked up for .50 cents at a garage sale, I just cut pieces of a cereal box and made shelves for my Memento Dew Drops.

Here is my new OttLite Desk Lamp I got it at Costco for $20….love it!!

These are my Copics they sit in paint brush holders from the dollar store and my Bic markers in a case I paid $1 for at a craft shop.

This is one of my favorite ways to keep my Spellbinders Dies organized. Avery Sheet Protectors 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 and Binders work great for these and many other items. I use them to store my stamps as well which I will post pictures of another day.

I kept the original folder and removed the tape and the Die from the back.

Next I opened the folder added a new piece of dbl sided tape and a piece of magnet, then slid them into the pockets. Perfect fit they just need a piece of Velcro at the top to close them.

I keep the rest of my stuff for the Cuttlebug in an Iris Card Keeper Box found at Michaels. I took out most of the dividers placed my folders in the front with the small dies and my Fiskars Embossing Plates and A,B,C plates in the back.

In an upcoming post I’ll show you my stamp storage.

Happy crafting.
