July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - From the Notebook

Welcome to July's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "From the Notebook" - a set of 24 stamps. This set of stamps is perfect to document anything and everything - from layouts, cards, 3-D items, notes, notebooks - just about anything! The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this awesome stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Darlys Recker's blog.

If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found here.

The stamp set looks like this.

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew exactly the purpose it was going to serve in my creative space!
I am ashamed to admit that the past year, I have gone through THREE Annual Expressions catalogs all by myself - because I mark them up so much that they get to a point that even I can barely read them! I am not even going to show you a catalog because I am horrified at how it looks.
Consequently, I decided to use this stamp set to create a pile of post-it notes to use in my Idea Books to mark pages and write notes instead of writing all over the pages!

I chose a variety of colours of Post-It Notes and I used a couple of the the Cricut Cuts to adhere to some of the pads - one even looks like a file folder! The sticky side is opposite the side to be written on. I can stick the note on the page and write what I want on it. The purple ones are marked as IMPORTANT - those are for pages that I know I will need to return to multiple times - like the main embellishment listings (I always reference that page when writing my blog posts).

The yellow and green lists are for my purchasing purposes - personal and for workshops. They will help to keep me on track and focus on one area of the catalog at one time rather than hopping around all over the place. Finally, the pink ones are to remind me to return to pages with terrific hints or suggestions because I always forget that those things are there!

I hope you can see the benefit of doing what I chose to do with this stamp set. I know it will work for me - maybe it will help someone else as well!
