Hi everyone! Colie here once again and excited as always to be sharing with you today. Who here has a lot of stamps? I know I do! They seem to multiply somehow, right? There are so many ways to organize your stamps, I am sure you have a favorite method, but how do you remember all of those stamps you have? I want to share a secret with you: I was always forgetting what I had! So I made a “stamp directory” and best of all, I used up some journaling cards I had laying around to make it so no supplies needed to be purchased!
All I had to do was stamp one stamp set per 4×6 card, punch a small hole in each one, and thread through a binder ring, and done! I added tabs to keep things a little more organized.
I kept it all super simple – white grid cards and a grey ink, stamped quickly and messily. This is a project you can put as much or as little time into as you want!! For example, I love seeing my images stamped, but some sets, like alphas, I don’t need to stamp every single letter. So I just punched a hole in my Sweet Stamp Shop packaging and added it with the rest of the stamps, worked perfect!
You could organize yours any way you want. By type (greetings, alphas, graphics, etc) or simply alphabetically by stamp name. I did not add stamp names or brands to each card because I do not usually use that information, but that is another idea of something you might like to add!
I used ALL of my amazing Sweet Stamp Shop stamps in this project, so I won’t bore you by listing them all here, but I will highlight the main stamp I am using on the front. It is called the Alpha Tabs stamp and I bought it for my pocket scrapbooking (perfect!) but it works so well for this type of project! If I were to go back and add the stamp name to each card, I would use this stamp. It is bold, stands out amongst other stamps, but also small enough to fit easily on the card!
I hope I gave you lots of ideas for organization here today! I will be back next week, but don’t worry about missing me in the meantime, a wonderful team member is here EVERY DAY! The best way to keep up with what’s happening around the shop is to “like” the facebook page. See you soon!
