I'm so excited. I got 3 new sets of stamps that I ordered from Cutters Creek. Let me tell you, Kim is the best. She gets your orders right out to you unless you have a preorder item holding up your order. She has great prices and sales. I have purchased a lot from Cutters Creek in the past 2 weeks.
The stamps I bought from Cutters Creek are on sale 65% off. So they are only $4.55 each. So I bought all 3 sets. They are just beautiful. I have been looking for a good garden set of stamps. And these are perfect.
"The Quiet Corner Bench" has a really nice Bench, Cat, Hat, Basket, Book, Gloves and several Flowers and Grass.
"The Gate" is adorable. It has a Gate, 2 sections of Fence, 3 signs, 3 birds, Latch and Bracket for fence and several Grass and Flowers.
"Wheelbarrow" Is just beautiful. It has a Wheelbarrow with a stone rode path underneath and has 3 different seasons of Flowers.
And the great thing about these stamps are they are mixable. You can mix all these sets with the others. I cant wait to create a card or some thing with these.
But for now. I'm going to show you a tutorial on how I store and add them to my collection of stamps.
Aleene's tack it over (I use this), Tim Holtz Scissors (which I love). Either a Label maker or Excel sheet, and a thick DVD case, And don't for get a binder to log your stamps.
I want to put these new Garden stamps in the Garden section and see that I have some Wheelbarrow's already. LOL! But this shows me that they are wood mounted and in Drawer 7 along with the other stamps on this page. (Note, One page per case). Well, these new stamps are not wood mounted. And I want to put them in a DVD case. So I have to go to my excel sheet and see what letter code is available. Because I don't already have a Letter assigned to a DVD for Garden.
After I get that done and save my excel sheet. I select the 2 new rows and print > Selection and only print the 2 new entries. I then cut them down to the strips. Which have been already sized to fit my cases in my excel sheet. I then take my Xyron 150 sticker maker, and slide the 2 entries in face down. Why do I put them in face down. Well, I do this so that the sticky is on the front so I can then put them on the "Inside" of the DVD case so the label never gets dirty or comes off.
So now, When I want a garden stamp. I get my Stamp catalog and I go to the garden section. And I look at the images and see which one I want. If I want this one. I see its in a DVD case. And its II1. So I go to my Shelf and the cases are in order by Alpha Number so It only takes a mere second to find the exact stamp set I'm looking for. No more hunting, and forgetting what I have.
Here is the link to my Stamp Storage Excel sheet, that will fit the side of the DVD cases. If it opens, click File, save as.
