Whoohoo! My shelves for holding all my stamp sets are finally ready! The stamp room is slowly taking shape. I still have a lot of ‘stuff’ to find places to stuff it but each day I make progress. My goal is to have it ready by Nov 23 so I can hold a Holiday Open House that day. This photo makes it look like the shelving is fairly long. Actually, the smallest shelves are only 7 3/4″ long and the largest is 11 3/4″ long and they are 8 inches deep. This is perfect for holding stamp sets. I am thinking of maybe adding more shelves closer together in the narrowest section to hold my new style punches. I have two more sections of narrow set-in shelving. When my room is finished, I’ll be sure to share pictures of it.
Stamp storage tip:I keep the stamps in a set together in the case they come in. Then I ‘file’ them on the shelves by category like flowers, kids, sayings, etc.
Paper scrap storage:
Stampin’ Up! sells Large Flat Cello Bags 6″ x 8″. The number is 102210 and come in a package of 50 for $4.95. I store my 81/2″ x 11″ card stock in hanging file folders. I have the color name written on one of these cello bags for each color card stock I have. Then I put the scraps into the cello bag and put it into the hanging folder with the corresponding color of full pieces. When the scrap is bigger than 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, I trim it down to the half sheet which fits perfectly in the cello bag. I keep dsp scraps in the same package as the whole sheets.
