a quick hello!

in my head, I had planned a longer post for today...
but you'll get a VIDEO...(if I did it right!)
fingers crossed...

TOMORROW...

the editing is FAR from perfect...
but if it makes you laugh, that's just fine with me...

there were LOTS of BLOOPERS that I chopped out...
but I couldn't fix the biggest one...
you'll see...

and there will also be a Q & A type interview too...

so, please pop back in on Friday!

in the last few days, I've had a few questions about the acrylic storage binders for my stamps, so I thought I would include the info here...
plus I NEEDED a photo for the post. LOL!

I designed these to store LOTS of stamps in a small space, plus I wanted an easy way to use them. no digging thru a box...
that's NOT convenient...plus it's a time waster...

this system works well...
just flip throughout the storage sheets, like you would flip thru a book...
use the stamp & return it back to the storage sheet...
the cling stamps stay nice & secure...

1. that blue paper comes off...
it's a protective coating for shipping...

2. I have 10 sets in my large binder...

3. YES, 3 giant binding rings are included in the package, along with the front & back covers for the large binder...

4. the small binder comes with 2 giant binding rings, since the small stamp sets have 2 holes...

5. the large binder will hold both the large sets & the smaller sets too...
the small stamp sets were designed to fit...

here's one of my older large ones...



4. the easiest way to alter the cover...
so that you can hide the adhesive is...

lay your chosen paper under the cover, but do not glue...

then, arrange & glue your embellishments onto the front...

when you turn the cover over, you'll see exactly where to add the adhesive to hold the background paper in place...

and no adhesive will show this way...

Now FINALLY...

here's the RANDOM WINNER chosen from the
ART FROM THE HEART blog hop for my friend LADY DY...

CONGRATS to...

Love how you decorate your binder - still not taken the blue covering off mine (it's peeling off) but I keep meaning to decorate it!
