Clear CD cases are wonderful to store acrylic stamps! Until you get so many stamps that you just run out of room!
I went from having some stamps stored this way, some in Stampin' Up stamp cases, some still in their plastic wrappers and some stashed in drawers........
Each case has a number on it so I'll know exactly where it belongs on the shelf.
This is the back of the same stamp case.
I laid the stamped pages side by side and made a copy and numbered each of these pages.
The pages were put into a 3 ring binder inside page protectors. Now, when I want a stamp, I can just flip through my catalog, find the image and take the numbered case off the shelf.
Until I did my catalog, I was constantly flipping through the CD cases to find a stamp I wanted to use.
I know I could have kept them in the clear CD cases and just made the catalog, but, I replaced the carpet in my craft room with commercial tile. Every time I drop one of those hard plastic cases on the floor, it breaks!There are a few stamps still needing to be cataloged. I ran out of stamp cases---and motivation, for now! Next time I get an invitation to a SU party I'll order about a dozen more and will get those done too.
Even thought it's taken me three full days to get this project done, I think it's going to save me so much frustration when I'm looking for a certain stamp. Also, now I can "shop" for inspiration with my catalog!
