If you’re like me and a new year (and heck, even a new decade!) get you wanting to refresh your craft organization, then today I have a fun free download to help you tackle your clear stamp and die storage.
When I started making cards in 2017, Jennifer McGuire was my guide to all things organization and I knew better than to question her many years of testing out various systems. Long story short: she’s the bomb when it comes to getting your crafty stuff organized so I adopted her bin/divider approach.
Recently, however, I decided to switch over to a card stock based divider system so I could easily print and trim out as many custom dividers as I needed. I am using Gina K. Designs Whisper cardstock for my dividers. It’s a wonderful neutral light gray.
Today I’m sharing my divider templates as a free download that you can use to customize your own divider labels in a few ways:
- You can print onto your choice of cardstock, opening up all sorts of fun, colorful possibilities for your storage system.
- You can customize the font and divider topic to meet whatever types of stamps and dies you are organizing.
- And three… you do not need Photoshop to use my free templates!
Using a free online editor called Photopea, you can easily edit the templates to suit your needs and with one quick export to make an easy-to-print PDF, you can get to creating your own custom dividers.
Here is the video walking you through the steps of using either Photopea or Photoshop, as well as creating the final, laminated dividers:
Note: there are time stamps to skip to what you are interested in only! Photopea is at 0:40; Photoshop is at 5:19; and the creation of the physical dividers is at 7:53. Also, the cardstock I’m using in the video is Fog from Simon Says Stamp, another wonderful neutral. I ran out of Whisper cardstock before filming.
Here is the free download. The package contains three files that I’m calling Standard, Large and Small. The Standard size, when laminated, will work with your divided bins (I use this one) and your 4 x 6 stamps and dies. I store mine in Avery Elle Large Stamp & Die Pockets which are 5.5 x 7.375 inches. The Large divider, when laminated, will fit easily into a bin like this one and I use that for my larger 6 x 8 sets and larger die sets, which I store in Avery Elle’s Extra Large pockets which are 6.75 x 9.375. The Small size will work for smaller die storage and for those dies, I use the Simon Says Stamp Small Pockets which are 5 x 5 inches. The small pockets also fit into my divided bin.
Note: this packaged is zipped and must be unzipped to access the contents.
