Stamp Book





These pictures (click on image to enlarge) are of the stamp book I made to keep track of all my different stamps. I have them in baskets and sometimes I forget which ones I have. By doing this, I can now flip through the book and decide what would look best for a project. I just used large, blank index cards; punched a hole in one corner and added a silver book ring with some bits of ribbons and yarn tied on the ring. Then I stamped away. I used my rounded corner punch on two edges. I think the little corner punch is my favorite tool right now. I use to use stamps just for fabric and now I have discovered that it can be used on anything! Of course, I used some nice cardstock for the front and embellished it. I am loving this little vintage bird right now. I keep putting him on all sorts of things. I just made some ATCs and he is one them. I'm even using him in a journal quilt that is in progress.
Here is a picture of Taylor, my cat. She loves to be where I am and in this picture she is in my studio waiting for me to get out of my computer chair so she can have it.

What a great idea (stamp book). I have three baskets full of stamps, and I can never remember what I have unless I go through everything. Therefore, I don't get a lot of use from them. Mind if I follow your idea and make a stamp book?
