1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Portable Stamp Journal 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.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 52 reasons Why I love you book on: May 22, 2008 08:02:24 AM
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.
