On Thursday I had four teeth pulled. Pretty much a lost day. So, what did I do on Friday?  More ice, some rinsing, nothing too strenuous. But, I was, according to my husband, “more alert”. I enjoyed some soup that good neighbors brought me. But, I was itching to do something “stampy”

Here’s task one. I’m reorganized my Paper Pumpkin stamps in my Project Life Album. I have a book set aside for that but decided to reorganize the stamps by category, rather than by just putting in the next month. Putting the stamps in a Project Life Album is such a great system – not original to me but one I embrace.

Organizing Paper Pumpkin Stamps:

Once I finish with my monthly Paper Pumpkin kit, I put the stamps in a Project Life Photo Pocket Page. Up until now, It’s been pretty random. I decided to organize them by occasion, holidays, birthday, etc.

    Old System:

Organizing Paper Pumpkin stamps:

If you are going to organize you stamps, first, gather them all together,Then sort them. Sometimes the sets cover multiple holidays or events, like thanks and birthday in the same set. So, some sets are broken up.

Here are the categories I ended up with:

  • Birthday
  • Thank You
  • Hello/Get Well / Thinking of You
  • Christmas / Fall Holidays
  • Valentine / Mother’s Day/ Father’s Day
  • Sympathy / Miscellaneous

Next I took some white board that you get in the packages of Designer Paper and created dividers.

I labeled the dividers, punched holes on the side,  and inserted them in the book.

You may want to cut some card stock to place behind the stamps so that you can see them better.

Done!

If you have the stamps organized in a way that makes sense to you, you will use them more often. I like to have my book out for all of my classes so that if folks want to change the sentiment, it’s easy for them.
