CRAFTING TIP OF THE WEEK (#82) Storing Clear Stamps

Hello out there!

Today's tip has to do with yet another way to store your clear stamps.

I know, I know...there are many ways & some "popular" ways.I confess that I too store mine in CD cases but while I was pulling out a CD from one of my portable,wallet style CD cases- it hit me!

Why couldn't we (meaning me) or I just use these to do the same thing. So I thought & I thought. It can be done.

These wallet style, zip up cases are portable, allow for easy access & we could definitely embellish and customize them. They also house many sleeves allowing for storage of collections to keep them all together. You can also assign one wallet per designer. You would just have to remember to label the case & the inside sleeves but I imagine you are doing that already so it's not an issue.

Check out some of the cute variations I found:

The variation of sizes are great too. They are expandable and keep well in their zipped up wallet. It would be easy slip in, slip out of the stamp set. I think it would be wise to use a transparency layer over clear stamps if you were to use the open sleeve, wallet CD concept that I am proposing. That would help to keep the stamps from sticking or sliding out when you pull out the stamp sheet to select your stamp.

The portability factor involved in this idea is a plus because when you go to crops, events or creative sleep overs you know your stamps will be secure & contained.

These CD wallets vary in sizes and can hold from 12 to 100 CD's or more depending on what your needs are & what you purchase. They are affordable too. They come in all kinds of materials like leather, pleather,vinyl,plastic, neoprene & so on. You guys know how much us crafters love options!

So...whether you store it by artist,era or title you know they will remain in tact and at the ready.

And THAT...is just a little something to think about.


  1. Hi Sonia, awesome idea!!! Thank you for your wonderful comments on my blog! I am so happy to be on the WW DT with you!!! Fabulous blog! Hugs, Cathryn (inthepink) :)

  2. That is definitely a cool idea. Because the stamps are a lot thicker than a CD I'm sure the cases would hold a lot less stamp sets than it has sleeves for - but it would be so nice to be able to zip a bunch into one container like that!

  3. WOW! What a great idea, we all have at least one, two or even three of those around. LOL!!!

  4. Nice tip!! I have mine in cd cases as well but the are in a spinning tower and it is just to big and I was wondering what I could do to put them some where else. Thanks and I am a new follower! Please come by and visit!!


  5. That's a great idea Sonia! IT would be a perfect way to put different catagories together...i.e..sentiments, flowers, ect...

    Thanks for the tip! :)
