On my earlier blog I wrote about Copic Marker storage here. My marker collection is still stored in that bin, but Copic now recommends that markers be stored horizontally so the case sets on its side. This isn't a problem, but did change where the case is stored. Such is my life...finding a place to keep things, then re-doing it all again. And again and again.

I like to see how others organize and store their supplies. Sometimes I change my way of doing things, other times I am just in awe of their storage and work space. Today I am sharing how I keep track of and store stamps, dies and embossing folders.
I have quite a few cling dies. After trying various storage ideas that didn't suit me, I have been buying these EZ Mount storage panels from Amazon. I can't find them locally but never have to wait long for an Amazon order to arrive. A package of five is under $4 before shipping fees.
I store stamps on both sides of these panels and store them in a plastic storage bin with coordinating sheets of paper that show what stamps are on each page. Both the panel of stamps and the photo key go in plastic page protectors. I buy them by the box at office supply stores. Here is a photo index
The case with the copper colored handle is another Art Bin product specifically designed to hold magnetic dies. The panels that fit inside that case are magnets. I love that system! No more dies falling out and getting mixed up with something else. Many of my dies are nested in size which means many dies will fit in a small space.
Now for my binder. The inside pocket on the left is holding two sheets of sturdy card stock with samples of my punches. I have the sizes and names of the punch listed next to the holes punched out image on the large sheets and the loose pieces labeled and in the ziplock bag. Sometimes I want to hold the "hole" over a sheet of paper to get an idea what the image will look like, other times the reverse is handy to use to see what kind of space an image is going to use up on a layout or to use as a mask.
Embossing folders are next
And last but not least, the wooden stamps that began it all...
