Default How do you store your homemade cards?

I have quite a bit of cards that i have made over the years and was wondering how do you store them? do you put them in some kind of bin or do you store them in pocket sleeves.

just need some ideas. Thanks!

I purchase the large cellophane bags from Stampin' Up! and put the envelop and the stamped card in it and then fold it over. I am lucky to have a display rack that I put my cards in and can twirl the rack to find the card(s) I want to send (or sell). I do store my over-flow in the Stampin' Card Keeper box (which can be decorated) that is in the SU Holiday Mini. Either way, I love the cello bags as they keep my cards clean and fresh. So much work goes into making the cards that I don't want them getting messed up from handling.

I get the sleeves from Amber Shaw and that helps to protect the ones I want to keep. And I store them in boxes. And boxes. And more boxes

The cards I'm keeping for myself I have a plastic drawer that I keep them in w/matching envelope. I have tabs for Anniversary, Baby, Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You, etc. The cards that are for sale I keep separate in sleeves.

What size cards do your bags hold?

I don't know what Inkyimages uses. . . but I use the clear sleeves that I get from Amber Shaw. She charges 0000000 for shipping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And she plows any profit into her cards for troops project --- and she ships quickly

The SU cellophane bags are 6" x 8" and come in a package of 50 for $4.95. I open my card and put it in the bag with the envelope on the back/bottom. Then I fold the bag in half, closig the card and it is protected, but when I open it I can see what sentiment I stamped inside.

I also use the bags for gift items. I like to put stamped candles in them and tie the top of the bag with a pretty ribbon.

Sleeves will be the better option to store your homemade cards. You may also try card holding cases.

I put mine into plastic bags/sleeves and then I store them in those photo storage box containers that you can buy at AC Moore or Michael's. Or you could use a shoe box I guess.

These are the ones I have. Wait until they go on sale. You can find them sometimes for around $2 each. These boxes are great because you can stack them and I have my cards sorted by holidays. A different holiday for each box.

I'd never heard of Amber Shaw but I certainly like what she has to sell! Thanks for the info!

Hi--I store mine in a cute suitcase kind of thing (where they sell deocrated boxes at Michael's, etc). I made subject divsion cards and it works great--like my own personal store and it looks pretty on my shelf.

What do you think?

I STORE MY CARDS IN PLASTIC SLEEVES TO KEEP THEM NICE AND FRESH LOOKING AND PROTECTED. CARDS THAT I REC'D FROM FRIENDS OR WORKSHOPS I STORE IN A SHOE STORAGE PLASTIC BOX, IT HOLDS THEM UPRIGHT AND KEEPS THEM NICE AND IS EASY TO FLIP THROUGH WHEN I AM LOOKING FOR IDEAS.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE NAME OF THE MARTHA STEWART STAMP THAT HAD THE BUNNY AND CARROTS PICTURE ON IT? THANKS!

I have a tin seed box with a hinged lid I bought on clearance at Target several years ago. It's square and it tall enough for me to make "tabs" to separate the various themes of the cards (i.e. b-day, thanks, get well, friendship, etc). It keep them dust-free, safe from being bent or damaged and well organized so it' easy to find what I am looking for. AND it's CUTE!

I saw the Martha Stewart PUNCH that one of you amazing Splitcoaststampers found the image of bunnies and carrots hidden in it. I'll try to remember where that was. Is that what you're talking about?

The punch posting with a picture of the bunnies and carrots was in the "General Stamping" section. I don't know how to link you to it, but it was posted by "MISSCHAMELEON." I'm sure if you type her name in the search field you'll see the thread. HTH.

I keep mine in one of the card bins that There She Goes stamp company sells. Stampin' Up also has a card bin with dividers in it and a lid.

I buy my sleeves from Amber too. Not only no shipping charge but she is Super Fast on shipping!! Then I put my cards in a Sterlite plastic shoe box with a label (birthday, Get well, Anniversary, etc.) Then I just grab that container when I need a card.
