Stamp Storage

Hi Crafters,

I had a great time at the CHA super show, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed. Most of the vendors at the Super Show were small business vendors. I did have the pleasure meeting several of the small vendors that I was not aquatinted with!  Taylored Expressions was one of those vendors.  She sells stamps and dies as well as crafting accessories, all of the people at her booth were fantastic! I was only able to go the first day (which was also the last day of the trade show) so it is a possibility that there were some new (larger) vendors later in the show but it didn't appear to be set up for more vendors.

Taylored Expressions actually inspired my stamp storage revamp.  I found this fantastic mini-binder 8.5x5.5 inches at Staples.  The large Taylored Expressions stamp sets with the 3 holes fits perfectly into this binder.  I cut 11x.85 inch transparencies in half on the 11 inch side at the 5.5 inch mark to make my own stamp holders.

Check out the video to see it in action and to see the details!

***Edit: It's July 25th not August on the sale dates.  I would be in a world of hurt if it was August 25th, it would be well into the school year! Thanks Carrie!

Happy Crafting,


  1. Good idea for sramp storage. But- it is only JULY 25th Not August! LOL

  2. Good catch Carrie! Must be the summer brain talking!

  3. Great idea! Thanks for sharing it!

  4. but aren't you worried the stamps will fall off because they are not enclosed in anything?

  5. @ Matthew'smommy-- they have a great cling on them. I will need to be careful that the stamp isn't dirty before returning it but I can easily flip the pages without stamps falling out

  6. This is a great idea! I love that you would be able to easily see all of your stamps in one place... I'm so glad you found my blog, I'm now following you too! I'm also a teacher! :)
