1  Portable Stamp Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by scienceissexy on: May 22, 2008 08:23:05 AM
I realized a few years ago that I was buying the same stamps over and over again. So I decided that I needed to have some kind of tracking system so that I could stop buying repeats. Then came along the idea for my portable stamp journal. Every time I buy a new stamp I stamp it in the book and also label the stamp itself depending on what series/company the stamp is from!

I basically cut chipboard/cardstock to size, punched holes with my crop-a-dile, and then added fun ribbon.

Now when I'm going to the craft store, or pretty much all the time when I go out, I throw the book in my purse so I can figure out if the stamps I want to buy are ones I have already.

I found this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226651.0 and thought it was such a wonderful idea that I had to make my own for the hubby. I gave it to him for Valentine's Day (I know I am a slow poster!!)

I used chipboard cut to the shape of a deck of cards we got in Vegas on our honeymoon. I then covered the chipboard in different patterened papers and then used my crop-a-dile to punch holes in the chipboard covers and through all 52 cards. I then tied them together with matching ribbons and applied quotes to the front and back covers.

I received a wonderful package from Kimberly Pye yesterday. She included a patchwork pillow, a grocery bag with leather (I think) handles, a trader joe's chocolate bar which was swiftly eaten by myself and the hubby, and 2 vegan dessert recipes that I am dying to try!




Thanks again Kimberly Pye!!

Well I received two wonderful packages when I got home today!

First from Poerava:



A beautiful knitted with beads in it cuff bracelet and 2 pendants. I am very impressed with the knitting but couldn't get a closeup since my camera is being wonky. Poerava, if you have a better pic please post it I want you to get well deserved credit for the bracelet!!

From nofury:

A make your own paper kit with lots of extras....
like

and this handmade instruction book

and these cute cross stitches



There was also a book about Feng Shui (i need some order in my life), a cute keychain that says "Lead me not into temptation...I can find it myself" (so true), all kinds of goodies to add into the paper (like sequins, easter grass, wrapping paper, yarns, actual grass, etc), 2 pairs of earrings (I think), a knitted cuff, chinese checkers (which I love), a beautiful wood covered mirror, and of course the hoop for the deckle and mesh. All of which came in a giant box full of shredded newspaper for me to use (which made me giggle cause it escaped everywhere). I couldn't take anymore pics cause of the above camera being wonky again!! Note to self-may be time for new camera!!


Thanks so much Poerava and nofury!!! I loved everything!!

Well I received my robot package from ritapizza today!! Sometimes I am impressed with the USPS it went from California to Maryland since Friday when sometimes it takes 5 days to send something in the same city....anyway I digress.

My package was awesome! She sent two robot stuffies, a magnet for my fridge, tea and candy which are all delicious!! I am so happy!




And yes, the red robot has real metal antenne and arms!! I love them so much!

Thanks again, ritapizza!!
