I wanted to share The Notebook with you today. I've been stamping for a long time, and yes, I've acquired many stamp sets. Do you ever need a certain type of saying or picture? You think, now which set had that saying? I know I have something! But where? Here is my solution to that problem. I use The Notebook.
The notebook is a 2 inch binder. I've had it awhile. You can tell by the decoration on the front. I love it! Of course, it's green! Whenever I get a new set, I immediately take it to the copier and make a copy of it. The copy goes in a page protector and then into The Notebook. I don't have the pictures in any certain order-just as I acquire the sets.
Here's another sample.
I do make all of the pictures face one way so they can be seen easily. Now when I have a card class and someone asks to use a certain sentiment, I can flip through The Notebook and show them what I have. If they want to change a card from birthday to hello, we can take care of that. I even have a section for the retired sets that I just can't part with.
Now when we get a new catalog, The Notebook has to be tweaked a little. I pull out the sheets of sets I do not want to keep. Retired sets that I keep have their sheets moved to the back of the The Notebook. Then I am ready for new stuff!
Now for this to work properly, you must be able to find your stamp sets once you know the one you want to find. I do keep my sets in alphabetical order. They are easy to find and Life if Good! I hope this organizational tip will help you. It certainly works for me!
