Wooden Stamp Storage

I'm on an organizational roll...

Thought I would share my wooden stamp storage in the hopes that some might respond with their own acrylic stamp storage ideas...A product that I have not fully organized yet!

I keep my wooden stamps sorted by theme in these 6 drawer rolling iris carts from Costco.
My themes are Inks; Alpha; baby; birthday; Florals, nature, Odds and Ends; Shapes; Wedding/Love; Words/Phrases; and Xmas.

Some of you may remember that I have memory problems since we hit a deer a couple of years ago. I can't remember what supplies I have (or where they are) anymore!!! I  took the Wookie Mouse Organizational Challenge at Two Peas and she showed this great idea to create a binder of stamped off images.
As you can see, the iris cart drawers have a couple of layers of stamps in each one. Stamps can become forgotten when they are hidden on the bottom layer. I guess there is truth to that old adage, out of sight, out of mind!


To keep all my stamps visible, I stamp them off  (by theme) onto cardstock. These are then stored in a binder that I can peruse when trying to decide on the "perfect" stamp to use on a project.


Now I am trying to find a solution for my acrylic stamps. Currently I store the little Studio G stamps and simlar size in baseball card sleeves in the same binder mentioned above.  I haven't found a solution for all the other zillion different sized acrylic stamps I own.  I don't really have room for a Clip it up although I think they look great.
Any ideas or pics would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Love the drawer idea for your wooden stamps. I don't have that many loose ones, but acrylic collection has been growing by leaps and bounds. For most of those, I use empty CD cases, place the stamps inside and label the ends. I then store them in boxes that I got from Wal-Mart that work perfectly for CD's. It's been working really well for me!

  4. Wow, that's a great collection of wooden stamps!! I also store my acrylic stamps in empty CD cases by theme and then label the ends. You can fit a lot of stamps in a small space this way.

  5. I love your sheets of stamped off images, I often forget about some of my more hidden stamps too. I'm afraid I can't help with organisation, my stamps are all piled together in one big box with no order whatsoever! I do a lot of rummaging! x

  9. I like the idea of keeping the stamped images in a binder. A quick flip through and you can find what you like without looking through all of the sets. Thanks for sharing.
