Stamp Organization

The last 3 days I spent time on organizing my stamps. I had it previously in cd cases which I kept in the ikea cube (plastic cube drawer). I found it difficult to search and some of the other stamps were too big to fit in the cd cases. So I decided to change.
Now since I had already organized once before my rubber stamps were already off the wooden block.
I usually microwave the rubber stamps for 12 secs and then immediately remove the stamp with the foam which comes off easily and sticks to block. If the foam is cheap and tears then you can always remove completely and mount it on EZ mount. I also remove the decal on the top and paste it on cd.
Now as to how I organized
I used transperencies to stick/cling the stamps on - one side to stick the stamps and the other side I stamped if there was no decal or image so that I know where the stamps go on.
Then I slipped the whole sheet into a sheet protector and placed/filed them into a ring binder. I used 3 " and 2 " binders

Now I can easily flip and get to my stamps easily.
And next week I am going to organize my cuttlebug embossing folders
I think I am getting some of these 5 x 7 protectors - for regular ring binder -  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WA8S48 .

So how do you organise your stamps. Do share and post in the linky below

Wow, Pam! That's great organization! I have some of my stamps in CD cases, some in baseball card holders in a 3 ring binder, some in Stampin Up cases, some in their original packaging...I think trying to get them to a single storage method that works for all of them, is an overhwelming project for me. I'll just have to admire those of you willing to spend the time to do what you did!
