for a long time, I have had loads of stamps but have had no idea what to do with it. And so they have just sat in a plastic storage box with loads of other craft gear. As a result, I haven’t really used them, because I haven’t really been able to see what I have. So last weekend, I decided to do something about it. I bought a blank Kraft ring-binder from paper chase, some plastic wallets, and some a4 sheets of acetate.
To decorate my folder, I just grabbed a load of colorful stamps and stamped all over the front.
Here is the cover:
And here is the inside of the folder:
When you get the stamps, they will always come sandwiched between 2 sheets of plastic. one on the back (usually with the designs printed on it) and one on the front. All I need to do is take the blank piece of plastic from the front off, then cling it to the acetate. Voila! Now I can see all of the stamps I own easily.
Organisation is great – if you have everything you have shoved in a draw or box, it can be hard to know what you have and use it to the full. This brings me to a product I bought to organise my Dies.
I bought the Papermania Die Storage Folder a couple of months ago, and it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. It really helps me keep my dies organised, and makes them much more transportable. And it has more than 1 application.
As well as having magnetic sheets for easy storage of your dies
You can use the back of the pouches (the mag sheets are not double sided) to store thin cartridge dies and also your embossing folders! Genius.
And don’t even think about throwing away the mag sheets that may come packaged with your dies. Just slot them into the backs of the pouches – this will save you from having to buy quite so many extra magnetic sheets and pouches.
