My OWN Stamp Book


We are on day THREE of being iced-in!! and 80+ hours of being below freezing. That allows for lots of stamping time. I decided to tackle a HUGE organization project that I was inspired to do by LeAnn. She has so many wonderful organization ideas in this post.

My OWN stamp book!!! Lots of pattern paper and homemade TABS!!!



I debated on what kind of book - cinch, wire rings, binder? I finally settled on the binder as I felt it would be easy to add more pages.



 I used PTI's mini scrapbook series:tabs and die for the cutest dividers. I also die cut the clear plastic that the stamps arrive on so the white paper would have more protection. I matched the tab color to the paper! The letters for the tabs are PTI's simple alphabet.



I certainly don't have all my sets stamped yet but I am making progress. I have fallen "in love" with some oldies but goodies again and agree with LeAnn that having an accurate example of size helps so much when planning a project.


I have also found that I really like the pages stamped in brown ink better than the black. Just seems easier on the eyes.

I so hope you are staying warm wherever you are!! ~Rhonda


supplies used:
stamps: PTI - mini scrapbook series: tabs, simple alphabet
paper: stash
ink: various PTI colors
other: PTI tab die, clear plastic,

  1. This is GORGEOUS!!!! I have been revamping mine and will take some cues from your book. I LOVE it! The tabs are something I really wanted to add. But, I never thought to add color like you did!! My book always seemed so bland, but now I am considering some color. Awesome job!! I am glad that my post helped even one person. Totally worth it!

  2. Rhonda, this is fantastic! I've been wanting to do something like this forever. Can you tell me more about the actual binder? And the pages? How large is it? Where did you find it? I'm having a difficult time finding a small looseleaf. You really have a winner here!!

  4. This is a wonderful project and you are going to be able to use it for a long time! Fabulous paper choices (reminds me of Becky Higgin's Project Life designs).

  9. This is what I have been thinking about doing I do a lot of digital stamps and it would make deciding much easier to choose the one I need

  10. Rhonda, I have been planning to do this for several years... first stamping the full set,then in a separate "greetings" section, re-stamp any greeting in the mixed set and label which set it is from.
    I want a section with just greetings so that I can find the perfect one that may be hidden in a set I have totally forgotten about. Thanks for the motivation

  11. Rhonda, thanks for the push to do something I NEED to do. I plan to stamp each individual set by categories, while re-stamping any greeting into a "greetings" section.(listing the set where it can be found) I want just a greetings section so that I can find the perfect greeting that may be hidden in a set that I have totally forgotten about. Does this make sense? Thanks again

  13. I place the stamps on my printer and make a copy. Then I do not need to stamp every single image. I just make it a point to copy them as soon as I get them.

  14. What an excellent idea for all of us old stampers that have amassed quite a collection of stamps and have no idea of what we have and where they are!!
