First of all...
Ellen inquired about the unmounted system. I saw it for the first time at the Stamp Expo and on a whim bought some pages to try. LOVE IT!! My buddy Jen has unmounted all of her sets (gulp!) and uses it and is happy with it. Here are some pix I snapped of the sheets full and blank.
Two new doodle guys...Ezner and Mimo!
Basically, they are pieces of laminated paper...stiff paper, with 3 holes cut out. You can put them in binders or buy a special "box" for them. The box would be nice b/c then if a stamp fell off, it would be in the box still.
Jen has a buyer on ebay that she found to be a good price. I will have to find out who the seller is. But StarvingArtistamps sells this system too. I paid one dollar a sheet for mine at the expo...same price on their site for non tabbed. (Yeah b/c I can add that to my wishlist. ) Now I know I saw the "boxes" for them at their booth but it appears to be a "show special" b/c I do not see it on the site.
But, if you are Frugal Franny...like me...Just try laminating a piece of heavier stock cardstock. I think that if you were super organized, you could stamp the image on the paper, then laminate so you'd know where each individual stamp belonged. Though, if you are indecisive like me, you arrange and rearrange things often enough so that's not helpful. Jen said that she puts a paper protector in between sheets. Inside the paper protector she slides in a stamped piece of paper of the stamps that belong on the page. Does that make sense? Maybe I can get Jen to snap some pix for me to explain better...Check back.
Hankasaurus...My BIL Hank had 4 wisdom teeth plus one more extracted on Friday. I told him last week that it was worse than giving birth...and I think he would agree. He's miserable and thinks there is an infection. (Not worried too much just yet b/c when I had it done, I thought I had one too b/c the pain is immense.) So I stamped up some fun cards to cheer him up this week. (Don't look if you are reading this now Hank!!)
The Mimo card is esp. for Hank. He is a graphic designer/artist...loves numbers and fonts like that...and quirky, fun things. Mimo will make him smile! I just might need to give the "Need a Lift?" card to Ken b/c he's bothered by work and irritable. Also, Best Fishes is awesome...might have to figure out how to get a better photo. I know, I know, I've said that a zillion times!
Okay, I think I've typed enough for now. Later Lurkers!!
