BEST Storage System Evah!!

Check this out!! In just ONE foot of desk space (I placed my ruler on top to show! It's 7 " deep and 9 1/4"high) I have all* my Gina K bagged stamp sets from ALL our illustrators (not her sets hat come in tins) from the past YEAR in these binders(I linked the 6 pack for savings, but they can be purchased indivuidually), neat, safe and easy to find! (Before I had this stack of shees with myall my rubber on, getting dirty and it's a miracle I hadn't lost any iamges that way!) I was able to make a page from one 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper for all 9 binders (with some room left over for a few January sets soon to come!), trimming each spine to one inch wide. As a little "gift" to you, I am oing to be providing the document if you want to use it for your collection, it looks so nice and neat to have them all printed out, you can modify them as you wish to include to different sets! So check back for it, just got to figure out how to attach it!

The Blogaversary Blowout Bash starts 12:00 AM January 1st! You will not believe all the goodies, Stamps, paper, Scor-pal products and, are you ready for this, COPICS!!!! Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss out on the fun!!


* actually there are two sets that are not in here, I'm going to start another Rupa binder,as she has an odd number, so they didn't didn't fit in 2, and I still need to get Alicia's first set "Anna Mae's Valentine" :) but Valentine's Day is coming! ;)

TFS! Can they also be used for clear stamps?

Thank you so much for showing off your storage, I have been trying to decide what to do with all my various stamps that linger around.

Have a bright and joyous new year,

Hi Melanie!
I have been on the fence about the new storage system but seeing your picture and how little room they take up, I am waivering!
I started storing my in the cd tins then got the Little Monkeys storage set and really like that.
Dare I go for another storage system?

You are so clever. I am thinking about taking all of my SU rubbah off of the wood. Gets expensive to move that stuff when you're military!!!
