I don't buy many stickers any more. I have the PSB mentioned above, but it's not organized at all.

Lots of people like the Clip it up. I don't have any surface to keep it.

Others have made their own 'flat' version using a curtain or towel rod mounted to the wall.

I have tried a couple methods, but the one I have found to work best is to store them in a long basket.

You can see it here, on top of the cubby bookcase on the left. It's the long basket on the left. I love it. I can pull it down and bring it to my desk, use what I need, and then put it away when I'm done.

It holds a surprisingly large amount of stickers. And I keep fitting more and more in there. I've been using this basket for about a year and a half, and haven't outgrown it yet. And I LOVE stickers and use them a good bit. I also store rub-ons in there.

Hope that helps and good luck!

I have some plastic zip up folders that I use for mine. I organize them by theme and put a label on the front of the folder. Nothing fancy, but it's economical and it works.

I keep mine in hanging folders. I separate them by theme such as holidays, boys, sports, alphabet, etc. that way I can just pull out the folder I need and have everything handy without searching through all the stickers.

I have lots of stickers, some I have in notebooks, inside clear protectors, sorted by categories. Some small ones I have inside another notebook, I found several packages of clear protectors for baseball cards(got cheap at a thrift store). I can just flip through quickly. I do a lot of paper piecings and I have them in protectors inside an album I bought (also at a thrift store). I have some paperkins I made and I have them in lg ziplocks and I hang them on those cheap skirt hangers that the stores throw away. Maybe at some point I'll do the same thing to all of them. Hope you find some ideas that will help you. MAybe some that'll help us!

I have all my stickers in a 3 ring binder in page protectors. They are divided up into holidays, boys, girls, birthday, etc....it works for me as i don't have many

oh my goodness, would never have been clever enough to think of a different rod. The swirly bought one is good but not for those long papers of stickers etc.
I had been using a clothes hanger but they get banged around. Am thinking of mounting a curtain rod or wooden dowel on the side of my desk..Ty ty..dang wish i was clever but am very thankful of this site.

I had my letter stickers upright in a basket, but they started to warp. Now I have them all together in a rubbermaid container. For theme stickers, I separate them into plastic page folders by category (one for sports, one for travel, etc.).
Hope this helps!

I use a Cropper Hopper made for 12x12 paper. It's large enough for tall sticker sheets, is easy to label and sort through, and stashes under my desk when I don't need it.

When I started scrapping I bought a lot of stickers but really didnt find myself using them much. I probably need to go through them and get rid of a bunch. Right now I mostly have them in some of those divided expandable things. I am hoping that my new clip it up will be my final solution when it comes.

I don't use that many but I have them in two different Creative Memories Crop n style binders. It's great for organization of many things.

i use tons of stickers and I keep them in 3 inch regular binders. i put them in see thru page protectors. i put page dividers on the sides to label them by event, holiday, sport, quotes, whatever themes of stickers you use. I have 2 of them stuffed full but by keeping them labeled it is quick and easy to find what I need. I have a separate binder for all my alphabet stickers.

I used long hooks (I believe they are really shelf brackets) on my pegboard, and use hanging brackets on these. Easy access!

This is what I do, use regular notebooks and PBS binders. I use transparency sleeves, photo holder pages and baseball card pages to separate stickers. This seems to be time consuming to set up and get started but well worth it. I can search thru all my stickers, by category, and many times one from event will fit another purpose or category. I have a notebook for all my alphas and this is easy to take to crops.

I use notebooks/binders. I organize them by theme and alphas. Love them easy to just lay flat and flip through them.They pack great for a crop too.

I have a sticker binder, and that is great for all my old stickers, but the thing that I have now in my scrapbook room that I wish I had all along is my clip it up. I LOVE it. I used to finish a layout and then find something I could have used, now, everything is right in front of me on my clip it up. It takes up very little room and it holds a lot. I haven't even begun to fill it yet. In the picture it is wearing a Hello Kitty crown (from a scrappin party that got wild LOL)

Here is another view of the Clip It Up in my scrapbook room. As you can see, it doesn't take up very much room.

Cropper Hopper sticker envelopes. I love those things! I can put stickers and paper in the same envelopes. And they store neatly in a basket standing up. I also have two smaller baskets for letters.

I purchased the envelopes at Hobby Lobby; I think I bought the baskets as a set at WM.

I have a PSB binder. I got lucky with mine. I found it used online for only $20 and it came with a ton of pages.

My letter stickers are stored separately in two 3 inch binders with page protectors. I would prefer a different system because the stickers keep sliding out of the protectors.

Another vote for the Clip It Up!! I had the PSB, hanging file folders after that and then even considered the Scrap Rack but none of those really worked. Since I got the Clip It Up I use my stickers all the time! I even keep rubons and other stuff on there.

ScrapperSara22 made a home-made clip it with a dowel, washers, paper clips and clothespins.

I was very impressed with it as it was also budget friendly and seemed to hold more than the carousel.

Here is a link to her nifty creation in her gallery.

And if you don't have a space between two cabinets, you could possibly use a curtain rod holder than extends away from the wall.

I did break down and buy the clip it up...and I LOVE it. I have all of my letters (my addiction to thickers) on it. I still use the baskets for stickers and stuff.

I keep my stickers in one of those sterlight containers (with lid with handle...they come in all kinds of colors). It is easy to carry out of the scrap room to wherever I am working. Here lately, I have just picked the theme I am working on and put them in a smaller version of the sterlite container (they have like 4 or 5 sizes). These containers stack very well, as a matter of fact I use them for all kinds of storage (even DH has started using them) and have been for years. I just love that they have handles and are easy to carry.

My stickers are not organised, been thinking of doing that.

I use an accordian file; the kind you find in the office section at Walmart during tax season. Mine is plastic and has dividers where I can separated by theme.

I would adore a Clip-It-Up, but so would my cat. She consider everything hanging from it a tasty treat!

To keep my kitty out of things, I use 3 separate containers. One for alphas, one for themed stickers, and one for decorative stickers (bling, flourishes....no themes). My system works well for me. I look through my themed stickers, then grab some alphas, and then search through the decorative stickers for finishing touches.

That's funny about your cat. I have to keep my door closed so just me and Kitty (female) have just girl time. She will lay on a towel or blanket or shirt or anything I leave on the floor or chair for her. Otherwise the two boys just want to come in and lay down all over everything on my workspace.

I started with an accordian file, then to cropper hopper envelopes (more ability to sort by theme). I loved the cropper hopper thing, but wanted to see them AND have them organized and ready for travel, so now I made my own scraprack (see my gallery). LOVIN it!

I like your scraprack. Where did you get the "stuff" to make it with. Is that a 3 ring binder holding the pages-it looks like a catalog holder. ...... Not sure where to get that???

I used to store mine in wicker baskets, but have just put them in 2 3" binders. I used page protectors and photo sleeves. I also have dividers to sort by theme!

I used to have mine in drawers. Then in binders, organised by colour and theme. Neither of those worked with my scrapping style- I need to have things out in the open in order to remember to use them. So I bought a clip-it-up and put all my flat embellies (stickers, rubons, flat pkgs of chipboard), clear stamps, and masks on it. I don't have a tonne of supplies, so it all fits nicely on the base and upper tier and everything is within arms reach.

I attach mine to my wire shelving with binder clips...keeping all like items together (ex. Halloween, Birthday)
I can't figure out how to insert a picture in this post, but the pics are in my gallery.

I store mine in a regular binder, in sheet protectors. This allows me to store themes and holidays together. I keep my bulkier foam stickers in a tub.
