I've struggled with how to inventory my stamp sets. I hadn't come up with anything useful in the several years I've been stamping. I tried this:
I stamped images in black on white cardstock, put it in a sheet protector & stuck it in a binder. That's where it stayed. Nope...never really used it...never got the project completed. Not gonna work.
I tried half sheets of cardstock to be filed in a box...ditto.
Until the day before yesterday. That's when the seed was planted. A fellow FLYBaby mentioned a "SMASHing" idea...cutting up old SU! catalogs to inventory her large collection of stamps - SMASH Book style. I think she's onto something. I had an extra current year catalog...I cut it up! It was hard...but it was an extra. ;-) What do I put it in?
Aha! I run to the hall closet and pull out this:
How do I get them in...masking tape...I taped in THREE. Then I grabbed the Mono Multi and glued 'em all in! For some, I cut out the projects shown in the catalog if it was something I wanted to case.
Today, I took it with me and when an idea for a page or use for a current stamp set hit me...I wrote it down.
I do this for all the current stamp sets...not perfect...but it gets my inventory started. What about those retired stamp sets? Or those that I have stamped CS sheets for? THIS:
|TRIM ' EM !|
|COLOR ' EM!|
|GLUE ' EM!|
I think I'm gonna like this one!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a moo'valous day!
