March Creative Chat from My Favorite Things

Hi there!  It's time for the March Creative Chat from My Favorite Things!  This month's focus is on stamps:

Show us how you store your MFT stamps.
Any tips or tricks on organization?

My stamp organization is nothing new or outstanding, but it works for me at this point.  As a lover of stamps, my collection is always growing and room is hard to come by in my little house, so after searching for a long time I finally decided on a method that was easy on the wallet and clutter free.  My method?  IKEA storage!

Our house is a 2 bed/1bath and my crafting area is in a small area at the back of our bedroom. We recently redid our girls' bedroom and I inherited two of their Expedit bookcases.  I store my stamps (and other paper crafting supplies) in the white Kassett CD and Kassett DVD boxes.  It looks clean and neat which makes my very neat and organized hubby happy.  We are embarking on a bedroom redo of our own in April, so please ignore the ugly green carpeting in my room.  It will soon be a thing of the past : )

Here are some pics of my stamp storage:

Here is a close up of the cubbies that hold my MFT stamps:

Because I have so many Pure Innocence and à la Mode stamps, they get their own boxes : )  All of my other MFT stamps are stored in the DVD box.  You will soon see I am in need of another DVD box!

The Kassett DVD holds all of my WTG stamps, MFT Alphabets, Clearly Sentimental sets and all of the Stamps with Coordinating Die-namics sets.  I need to add another DVD box soon!

This Kassett CD box holds all of my à la Modes, with a few of the Fred Bear and Claire Keay stamps.

And finally, my Pure Innocence CD box.....isn't it beautiful?  LOL!

Well, if you're still with me I hope you enjoyed getting a peek into my stamp organization!  I can't wait to see how all of the other girls are storing their MFT stamps!  Maybe I'll get some more ideas!

You'll find a link to each participating designer on the MFT Blog!

I'll see you in a couple days when the MFTeasers begin! So excited for you to see all the new stamps and Die-namics!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow you do have lots of stamps - how do you keep track of them - I don't thank I have 1% of what you have and still can't remember what I have - always having to go through them to remember ! Moira Barlow SA
