I'm popping in today to share how I store my clear & cling stamps. If you hadn't yet guessed, I love organization products...love, love, love them! Recently, I was a winner (out of 1119 commenters) of blog candy from Becca's blog: Amazing Paper Grace (APG). Oooo, if you haven't visited her blog before, you will just love her style of elegant cards & projects.
The blog candy she offered was provided by TapeOnline.com -- I received 20 clear "dvd type" cases and 20 magnetic sheets, for organizing Spellbinder dies & cling stamps. The cases are crystal clear, the price point is fantastic, and their customer service & shipping is simply amazing -- I received them within a couple days of winning! I know I was a winner, but check out the TapeOnline product links below to see what I'm talking about; and while you're there you can see what the reviews are saying as well.
Clear Stamp Cases
I do have loads of stamps -- especially the little clear stamps that get easily lost or misplaced once they leave their little protective sheet. So I used the clear cases for quite a few of my clear stamps -- obviously I'll have to buy more (you haven't seen my collection of Christmas stamps yet -- lol). I love how clearly the stamps show through. The clear stamps adhere to the plastic case quite well, and on many of the stamps I left top plastic overlay so I could determine what the stamped image actually was; in the case of no visible image for the clear stamps I intend to stamp the image on a piece of clear transparency to include in the case. And instead of keeping the paper packaging for the stamps (with the stamp company name/image names), I just wrote with a large sharpie on the spine of the cases. Some of the stamps packaging fit perfectly into the cases, so I included them with the stamps.
|Originally this bin held my CTMH stamps, but I've since moved them --|
so I guesss I need to re-label this bin. =)
There's a lot you can do with these clear cases besides thin metal dies & stamps. Check out another cool organization idea that Becca used them for: Inky Nib organizer
Now I wonder...what would you use them for? TFSB! Lisa
