I am running out of room with all the Stampin Up blocks and clam shell boxes. I don't even have all that many either, but space is a tight commodity at my house. I have been researching different stamp storage methods at SCS, individual blogs, company sites. . . you name it, I've probably looked.
First of all, I decided to go with EZMount. I bought a couple of unmounted sets through TAC and Pink Cat Studios and decided that this is by far the best way to go. You can see through the acrylic block to know exaclty where you are stamping, and the storage is minimal.
Now that I decided on EZMount, I had to decide how to store them all. Someone had suggested getting the acrylic sheets at Lowe's and having them cut them into smaller peices. I decided the 4x6 size acrylic would be a good size so that there is only one set per sheet (I can use both sides). I then found shoe box size plastic containers that snap shut so that I can keep the dust out. Take a look at how great this is. I can fit 20-25 sets per box. My first box is almost filled up and I have enough Stampin Up sets to fill another box. I am dreading this though as I have to take them all off the wood mounts :(
I decided that while I'm at it, I should also get myself some sort of index started. I decided the best way for me would be to use 4x6 cards and stamp index cards of each set. One set per card (or 2 if it's a biggin) and then I bought one of those $1 photo albums at Walmart. Each card will have the company, set name and number. The numbers can be used to reference where the set is found and what box it is in. This way I won't have to worry about a growing collection of stamps for the future.
Sorry this was soooooo long. I am just super excited to have this figured out and can't wait until I am all caught up and only have to do new sets as I purchase them.
