Tuesday’s Tip: How to Differentiate Between Various Catalog or Online Exclusives Products?

At times there is more than one source for a stamp set, embellishment, designer series paper pack. Hmmmm……did that set (or other item) come from the Mini Catalog? Sale-a-Bration? The annual Catalog? Is it an Online Exclusive?

I store my stamp sets alphabetically by source and try to keep each source separated from others. And here’s what I do:

Using a small punch (I use a retired 1/4″ square image punch) I punch a bunch of pieces from a chosen scrap of card stock. I choose the card stock color by coordinating it with the color of the catalog/brochure. And if there is no catalog as is the case with the online exclusives, I just randomly pick a color that speaks to me.

And I store the little squares in a small Stampin’ Up! plastic storage box that I keep on my desk.

You might wonder what and where my ‘beautiful shelves’ are??? They’re salvaged MDF (multi-density fibre??) boards that my husband scrounged from bins when they were building new homes in our area! They work. They’re installed in the space behind the door to my “stamp room”. And then the door was removed for easier access. It now lives in the garage.

I hope today’s tip gives you a little inspiration for identifying the source of your various Stampin’ Up! products. It does take a bit of ‘doing’ but in my humble opinion it’s really worth the little bit of time and effort!

Thank you so much for popping in today. Please leave a comment below if you’re looking for a specific project or technique…..or if you’ve tried a variation of today’s card. And don’t forget to make a card and then make someone’s day by sending it to them.
