Shortly after I started collecting these little gems, I quickly realized that there had to be a way to keep track of them in such a manner that I can view each stamp. I decided that since I safely store my scrapbook layouts in page protectors, why not my stamps? I began by stitching a grid on each page protector. All pages hold at least 12 stamps while other pages hold more, as many as 24 depending on the pocket size and contents. I tried to customize the little pockets to fit the stamps. Then, using my Xacto knife, I carefully cut a slit across the top of each pocket. This allows me to slip the stamp in and out.
Each stamp still has its backing on it to protect the stickiness. Also, when I've stamped an image, I always stamp a second which is then cut out. I store the stamped image behind the stamp so I can see what the stamped image looks like. I also have written the name of each stamp on a strip of paper so I can see that information just as easily.
It sure has been a great system for me. Maybe it'll help some of you!
Have a good one! Thanks for stopping by!
