I don't know how many stamps you have but, my collection has been growing and I never seem to remember what I have in which drawer. (I keep them in a movable plastic cabinet with 3 drawers). When I noticed the idea somewhere of how to keep a record of your stamps I thought it was brilliant.
As I was getting ready to do so..I found this binder with sheet protectors in it but, you can just use individual sheet protectors and a binder.
You are then going to make a record of every stamp you have by stamping it on a sheet of paper.
I used a standard black ink pad and stamped each stamp onto a piece of paper. I keep my stamps in some basic order, like animals, growing things, etc and stamped them on the papers in the same way I store them. This way with one glance you can see what stamps you own and which you can use.
I even added my homemade stamps even though they do look a bit embarrassing next to the store bought ones don't they?
I then slipped the pages into the sheet protectors in the binder and Voila! There I now have a record of all the stamps I own.
Of course, as I add to my collection I will stamp them and store them. This will make your stamping activities easier and more efficient.
If you have lots of time and want to have fun then go ahead and do them in color as well. You may as well make a project out of it if you'd like. 🙂
