Migrating My Stamp Inventory Binder to an Electronic Version using Evernote

Use Evernote to create a digital stamp inventory!

Most of my readers are probably familiar with my stamp inventory binders which I’ve put a lot of time and energy into over the past several years and while it works, it’s pretty cumbersome to pull these huge, heavy binders out every time I want to find a specific type of stamp.  My solution?  To create a stamp inventory that is electronic and can be accessed from my computer as well as my iPhone.  I recently found a free program called Evernote which does all of this and more.

Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web.

There are a series of videos on the evernote website that explain exactly what you can do with this program. Click here to view them.

To download Evernote for your computer, click here.

It’s going to take me a bit to get all of my stamps into this electronic inventory notebook but I figure I’ll do about 15-30 minutes a day and sooner or later I’m bound to finish right?  Right now this is what my notebook looks like when I open Evernote:  (Click on the image to see it full size).  At the moment I only have my Lawn Fawn and some of my Paper Smooches stamps entered into my notebook.

Here are step by step instructions for how I’m using Evernote to create my stamp inventory binder:

  1. Open Evernote, Choose “File”, “New Notebook” and then name your notebook whatever you’d like.  I named mine “Stamp Inventory Notebook”.  If you wanted, you could separate your stamps by category or by manufacturer, but I find it easier for me to keep them all in one notebook.
  2. Click on “New Note”, where it says “Click to set title”, click there and enter the title of your stamp set.  I always put the manufacturer in front of the name if I know it.  For example:  Paper Smooches A Little Lovin’ is the title of one of my stamp sets.
  3. Where it says “Click to add tag”, click there and start typing your tags with a comma in between words.  Here is an example of tags that I used for the “A Little Lovin’” stamp set:  “announcement, baby, carrot, crown, elephant, frog, heart, i love you, kangaroo, lips, kiss me, new baby, mom and baby, paper smooches, welcome baby, thump I’m in love”  I put both tags for the images and the sentiments so that when I’m searching for something, it will be easier to find it.
  4. Next, I find an image of my stamp set on the web, and use my “snippet” tool to copy and paste the image of the stamp set into evernote.  If you don’t know how to use the snippet tool, click here for a tutorial.  You’ll be amazed at how much easier this little tool will make your life!  (online anyway LOL)
  5. So I go into the text portion of the note and either right click and choose “paste” or I just use ctrl-V to paste the image I snipped. (See image below)

That’s it!  Your first note is complete.  Now I just start all over and click on “New Note” again.  Easy right?  Time consuming, yes but in the end I will have a searchable database of all of my stamps which will make me more likely to use them more!

If you are using this program or another to keep track of your stamps, please leave a comment with any tips or tricks you’d like to share.  Since I just started using this program, I’d love to hear from anyone else using it!

Happy organizing!

Updated Scrapbooking Inventory Forms & Copic Starter Colors Chart

This post is an update to the previous posts where I provide free scrapbooking inventory forms.  After my post titled “Copic Markers for Beginners & where to find the lowest price!“, I was asked to provide a color chart to keep track of copic markers according to the two recommended color charts mentioned in that post so I’ve added two forms to the list.  One is for the copic starter colors and the other is for Jennifer Mcguire’s favorites.  These are great color choices to start out with and what I’ve been using to build my collection.  These forms should  make it easier to keep track of the ones we have and the ones we want to buy without having to use one of the HUGE charts that are provided by other copic retailers.

The first form is the Starter Colors Chart and it’s blank so you can color in the ones you have as you get them.

This next form is the list of favorites that Jennifer recommends.

And here is a master list of ALL of the scrapbooking inventory forms I have provided through today’s date.

  1. Punch Inventory Sheet
  2. Border Punch Inventory Sheet
  3. Cricut Cartridges Inventory Sheet
  4. Cuttlebug Folders Inventory Sheet
  5. Embossing Powder Inventory Sheet
  6. Glimmer Mist Inventory Sheet
  7. Glitter Inventory Sheet
  8. Ink Pad Inventory Sheet
  9. Cat Eye Ink Pad Inventory Sheet
  10. Paint Inventory Sheet
  11. Stickles Inventory Sheet
  12. Pen Inventory Sheet
  13. Paper Stack Inventory Sheet
