Stamp Organization

Okay I love to have everything neat, uncluttered and organized. My wooden stamps were driving me crazy so I decided to do my second batch and get them off of the wooden blocks and prepared for acrylic blocks - besides the wood takes up way too much space. Digital stamps are looking more and more appealing at this point! LOL For those of you that are new to this, here is what you do.

1. Take all the stamps off the blocks and the foam that adheres them to it. Some may have to be microwaved for a few seconds because they may be pretty tight!

2. Get some EZ Mount Foam and put the stamp on the sticky side and cut out around it. Voila - they are now ready to be put unto acrylic blocks to be used.

3. I store mine in CD cases and label them. I make a sheet of paper and stamp the image on the top so I know what is in each one.

As you can see - they now take up a lot less space - Love it!
