Covered Stamp File

Any other Virgo's out there?
If there are, you'll know what I mean when I say I love to
categorise and organise all of my craft supplies,
just as much as I love to make cards and projects.

This morning I have been sorting through my stamps
and decided to stamp them all and put them into
plastic sheets, in a ring binder.
(Separated into the different makes, of course!).
It will be so much easier to flick through the folder to see what I have,
rather than get all my stamps out.

I have covered the file,
using this week's lovely sketch from
Check out the great work from the DT
and if you enter this week you could win a £10 gift voucher
to spend at The Craft Barn

Stamp - Magnolia, Tilda with puppy and Old bench,
coloured with whispers pens.
Text Stamps - My Sentiments Exactly, Adrienne.
Design Paper - Papermania, Rich Yellow
Bloom, card candy and ribbon from my stash.

Had to laugh when I read this - I too have catalogued all my stamps - I am now on book 2, book 1 is bursting! I thought I was the only one who did this but obviously not!!! LOL
It does make life much easier when you need a specfic stamp - and stops you buying duplicates - I have done this!
Confession is good for the soul, right?
