Yeah, unmounted stamps = more room for more stuff :)

I have moved all of my scrapbooking/crafting supplies to one of my spare bedrooms.  In doing so I realized that I have WAY too much stuff.  I sold/donated some of the stuff, but I still do not have enough space.  So I needed to get creative with my space.  In a previous post my hubby and I made a clip it up for my plethora of stickers and such.  One of the other things I decided to do was convert all of my wood mount Stampin' Up! stamps to cling mount.  Here is how I did it.  (I really need to start posting videos instead of taking all of these pictures - one of the many things on my To Do List).

Here is the storage space before. Now I do have more stamps, but this is all that would "fit" here.
So here is one of the wood mount stamps pre-convert.
First, pull the rubber away from the gray foam.  If you have any issues you can nuke it in the microwave for 3 sec or so, but I didn't have any trouble with mine.  (So what do you think of those nails??)
Here is what it looks like when it if removed.
I used cling mount foam from Stampin' Up! 
Just peel the paper back and put the rubber onto the stick side of the cling mount foam.
Next I used a hot knife to cut the foam cling mount foam around the stamp. 
The knife cut like butter.
Now I have about 100 wood blocks to find sometime to do with.  Let me know if you guys have any good ideas.  I have come up with at least one that I will be showing in another post.
I put the converted into Stampin' Up!s Bulk Clear Mount Stamp Cases.  Now look at all of the room it saved.  LOVE IT!!

If you guys need any Stampin' Up! supplies you have seen, send me a message and I can put in an order for you and directly ship it to your house.


  1. wow! very creative! I'm loving your blog! how was tonight?

  2. How much foam did you go through for how many stamps? Sure saved you some space. Want to come do mine? :)

    1. 23 stamp sets of varying sizes and a little less than 4sheets of foam (2 packs).
