I've been reorganizing my stash today and realized that I've got an
evergrowing amount of stickers (that I probably will never use, but just
can't seem to pass in a shop) and have tried something new with the filing
of my big sheets I use to keep them in a two ring binder in filing
sleeves, but this did not work too well, as they use to fall around a lot
and get untidy. I've filed them in a "flip file" now. It's basically a
bunch of A4 filling sleeves allready bound together in a "book - like"
manner. I've placed a white page of paper in every sleeve beforehand, so
that you can use both sides of the sleeve and this works very well for
stickers on vellum or clear pieces of plastic, so that the the two sheets
don't "interfere" with each other. I hope I'm making sense...lol!
For the smaller sheets of stickers and die cuts, I'm using a small "pocket"
type album. I've seen that idea here in the newsgroup - I think it was
Marilyn's tip - and it works really well. Very cheap and very easy to check
out everything quickly.
I store my stickers in a 3 ring binder thing I got from Creative memories.
You can buy page protectors that have slots to put them in. I have also
heard of others who use the scrap rack. I know a lady who just bought a
regular three ring binder and bought report cover things that are closed on
3 sides and you slide the paper in from the top. So she made her own. I'm
sure it's a lot cheaper. I don't really have a way for my die cuts. I've
just throw them in a draw, but keep them in a baggy. It's hard to find ones
I want. Or even remember what I have.
I have the Scraprack, it is great.

I have a Sticker Binder that I take to crops. It has a three ring
binder setup inside, and pockets. and it all zips up nice and neat.
I have also used old 4x6 photo books for diecuts, and the baseball card
trading pages work good for small ones. I also use the 8.5x11 page
protectors for sheets of stickers and alphabets.
well my stickers are in a regular school folder. I am in college so I just
bought a regular folder and put them in that. I also have some of the
cropper hopper scrap holders for 12x12 papers, and I have file folders, also
12x12 and I have them labeled with scraps, vellum, sticker words and
alphabets, fancy paper, lots of stuff. Its working well and I like how I can
find everything so darn easy!!

I put my stickers into an ordinary ring binder. I have two - one for
letters and peelystickers and 3-D stickers, and one for all the rest,
sorted by category eg.flowers, birthdays, hearts etc.. The only ones
that don't fit into the binders are border stickers and 12 inch
sheets, and I picked up a special border sticker holder for them -
it's like an extra-long bill-sorter.

Crafts, cats, and chocolate - the three essentials of life
Something I haven't heard of anyone else doing yet. I have a ridiculous
amount of punchies, die cuts and stickers so I bought a "small parts
organizer" (like what someone might keep all their screws, nails, nuts and
bolts in in a garage) for them. It's wall mountable so it doesn't take up
layout space, and the drawers come with optional dividers so I can keep
everything nice & organized. I put a label on each drawer (even though they
are clear) so I know exactly what's what and can find everything easily. The
best part - it was only $15 brand new!
Melissa, I have the same thing, but use it for all my brads, eyelets and
other small embelishments. I like the fact that its wall mounted and out of
the way, so to speak. I'm on a brad craze at the moment and I find it very
easy to organize them seperately like this.
