The primary storage advantages of clear mount stamps over wood mount are their slimline case, consistent sizing, lighter weight and easy read labels.
But what if you could save even more space?
Would you be interested?
If you are like me, smaller footprints (rather than reduction of the quantity of your actual craft supplies) is the key to space saving in your craft space. In order to maximize my stamp storage, I have switched primarily (though not entirely) from wood mount to clear mount stamps. But, it recently occurred to me that I was missing an opportunity to save even more storage space with some of my clear mount sets!
I have found that multi-case sets, like the Apothecary Art set from the current Occasions Mini Catalog and the Every Little Bit set from the Idea Book & Catalog (both shown below), can actually be stored in a single case ... thus taking up half the storage space AND providing me with an extra clear mount storage case for free for any of my wood mount stamps I choose to unmount!
On the outside of these boxes, you simply slip the 2nd cover sheet into the back cover of the case you are using. Inside these boxes, depending on fit, you have the option to place all stamps on one side of the case or half the stamps on each side.
For most crafters, storage and organization seems to take up almost as much time as crafting itself. Do you have any other storage tips to share with the rest of us? Please post in the comments below! And check back soon for more organization tips from me.
Happy Crafting AND Organizing,
