^^^ I do this too, but mine are regular 3" binders, not D ring. I LOVE the MS pocket pages because they have the flaps to keep the stamps from falling out. I use the ones with 2 and 4 pockets on a page.

Same as the above posters for my clear stamps. I just switched to this system last month (they had 40% coupons available in the store - no limit) and I love it. Love the flaps!
My wood and themed stamps (Christmas, etc) are in rubbermaid drawers since I don't use them that much.

|Posted: 7/12/2012 7:23:54 PM|I cut myself 12x12 sections of corrugated plastic (the type signs are made from) then stuck all my cling stamps to them. I have them grouped by theme mostly. Then I put them in storage box. They are vertical and I can just flip through them and grab what I want easily.
I use to have little books I made but I found after a time that flipping around in the books and making sure the stamps wen back just right was a pain. With these 12x12 sheets i can just slap them on and there is no fuss.
Here is a link to my storage in case anyone wants to try it.

I use binders too. I bought some different page protectors from a baseball card shop but they fall out. Thanks for sharing the MS info. I will check these out next trip. Jennifer McGuire uses pages with flaps in one of her videos but I could never find them. Awesome!!

I would eventually like to use this method for my larger sets, after I use up my stash.

|Posted: 7/13/2012 11:24:43 AM|I copied an idea from someone over at UK Scrappers her post here with pictures
I don't know if you need to be registered to view the forums there. If you do, briefly:
I used A4 laminating pouches.
Cut A4 white paper down by a centimetre then cut each sheet in half.
Stamped onto one of the halves.
Placed the stamped half and non stamped half into the laminating pouch leaving a gap in the middle (for each folding after laminated).
Put through laminator.
Folded in half with the stamped images at the front.
Put the stamps into the folded section.
Added a label with the stamp information (make, range etc).
They are all stored in a 9L really useful box with an XL lid (I have plenty of 9L boxes but no XL lid so I bought some of those online) with dividers added in (coloured card cut down and laminated to an inch or so taller than the folders containing the stamps.
This is my third re-organisation of my clear stamps. Firstly I did the cd cases but I found they took up so much room. Then I made little pouches using old page protectors and sewing them down, but I got fed up of making the pouches so gave up half way through! This one I stuck out and they all fit into one box and sit nicely in the cupboard right next to my scrap desk so they don't take up any desk room.
ETA a scrapping friend has used what I assume is similar to the SU cases, someone at crop managed to find a source for dvd cases without the moulded inner. She has those colour coded by theme and I have to say that's a good option too. I couldn't find the cases for a cost I was willing to pay for how many I needed, whereas I already had the laminator, pouches and white card I used for my system on hand (ie no extra expense). Had I needed to purchase the laminator I may have gone with the dvd cases option!

I use a clip-it-up product -- the bar you attach to a wall.

I initially used baseball card protector pages in a 3 ring binder, but they fell out a lot. I happened to be at a Ben Franklin that was closing a few years ago and found a Crop In Style 12x12 zipper binder on clearance along with the sleeve inserts on sale too. I think this system was designed for storing stickers and embellishments but I think it works great for acrylic stamps!! I bought several styles of the sleeves and I can get several sizes of stamps in the different size pockets. They have the fold over top over each section which is great..it keeps the stamp from falling out. I don't know if this system is still available. I'll try to post some pics.
I recently saw the Martha Stewart line of office/storage products at Staples and noticed some of the page protectors have fold over tops. They would be great for storing stamps, but at around 6x8 you'd have to have to have more than one binder (unless you only had a handfull of stamps, lol), but again, you could sort them by theme or manufacturer.

|Posted: 7/14/2012 1:31:02 PM|Thanks to this thread, I went to Staples last night and picked up some of the Martha Stewart page protectors. They are awesome!! Thanks for the tip, ladies! I had never even seen these before...and just majorly downsided my stamps this week. I was trying to figure out how to store them without them falling out of the binder.
So yay! Thanks for help Peas! This place ROCKS!!!
