and asked me to share more of how I keep track of my stamps so that's what I'm doing today.
I know I have shared this before but I couldn't find that post so here it is again.
I don't remember when I started my "stamp catalogs" as I call them but it was years and years ago. I am a very visual person so I wanted something that I could look at and see what I had, see the actual sizes and whatnot.
So every time I get a new stamp/stamp set I stamp it in my catalog and put the name/company of the by it. I have some sections based on company but many are lumped in one misc. section as they were stamps from companies I didn't know I'd end up with a large collection from. I've thought about re-doing the catalogs and putting them truly by stamp company but that seems like too big of an undertaking for me at this time so I am happy to continue with what I've got...for now.
Currently I have two notebooks, one that has all my stamps from The Angel Company, CTMH and Stampin' Up in it and the other one has all the other companies. (Excuse the photos, it was hard to take them without a glare from the page protectors)
I also have a "catalog" for all my punches and dies. I find it helps me to see the exact size that a die/punch plus it helps me see them all so I can choose more easily. Every time I get a new punch or die I add it in the catalog. I only have two sections, Stampin' Up and all others. Again, I've thought of re-doing it but again, too big of an undertaking right now so I just continue as is...for now.
So there you have it! that's how I keep track of my stamps and dies/punches!
Have a great day and I'll see you back here soon!
