When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

How I Store My Rubberstamps - Unmounted, Cling and Wood-Mounted

I have several ways of storing my rubberstamps.  It all depends on whether they are unmounted, cling or woodmounted stamps.

 This is a wide depth bookcase that we got at Ikea.  Everything in this bookcase are stamps.
 Clear stamps are organized in the binders.  My unmounted and cling mounted rubber stamps are organized and sorted according to brands in a plastic binder that you can buy at Unibinder. 
 My collection.  This is mostly character stamps.
 Stamps inside these binders are mixed of clear stamps, cling mounted and unmounted.  I used Aleene's Tack It Over and Over glue for the unmounted ones. 
 I got these 1-inch document protector plastic cases in Korea and paid less than $1 for one.  I stored my lose stamps in there as well as old rubberstamps sets.  I unmounted my 50 some sets of CTMH rubberstamp, mounted them in an EZ mount panel sheets, and store them in those document protector plastic cases.
 These plastic cases are from SU stamps but instead I used them for my $1 stamps that I normally picked when I'm at Michaels or Joann's.
 Now look at these DVD clear plastic cases. These cases has all my SU stamp sets. Pretty neat huh!?
 I'm not much of a big fan of alpha stamps because I honestly doesn't know how to use them.  I really dont like it when they don't line up.  So the few sets that I own, I store them in this embellishment organizer.
 I also have a basket for new stamps and those that I haven't mounted and organized just yet.  I been wanting to buy another batch of Unibinder binders but not really in a hurry to buy them.  That's why these goodies sits in these baskets.
 More stamps that needs to get mounted and organized.
 I have two other baskets that sits in the bookcase for big lose stamps that I grabbed whenever they are on sale at Hobby Lobby.
 This is my simple way of storing my Justrite Stamps using drawer organizer that we bought from Ikea.
 Mounting blocks and tweezers are all in here too.
 I store this on the top of the Jetmaxx drawers inside the walk-in closet. I want to make sure that my children could not get hold of these stamps.
 As for storing my background stamps, House Mouse Collection, Thomas Kinkade Collection, Unity and Hero Arts, they are all here in these two Making Memories Embellishment Hanging Centers.
