2- Introducing a NEW Storage System!

By February 13, 2008General

As stampers, we LOVE to organize all of our incredible supplies.  We love to have everything easily accessible paired with a convenient, orderly method to keep everything that way. 

I’ve found the perfect solution for Papertrey’s clear stamps and I am excited to unveil yet another one of our innovations to you today!

021308_pieces_of_packagingHere is a photo of the NEW contents of our stamp sets!  The actual stamps will continue to come on an acetate sheet along with the complimentary convenient clear storage case, as it has always been.  The change is in this FABULOUS CLEAR label! 

021308_trimmed_spine_labelIt has all of the images from the stamp set printed on it along with a spine label along the edge that reads the title of the set.  To store your new stamps, you want to trim the spine label from the sheet with scissors or your paper trimmer.  We’ve "boxed" the title in so that it is easy to see where to cut for a perfect fit.

021308_spine_label_adheredYou then peel away the backing and adhere it to the spine of the clear case.  It’s that easy!

021308_cover_label_adheredAll that’s left to do is peel and stick the remainder of the label to the cover of the case.  It’s best to center the label on the cover, rather than stick it all the way to one side.

021308_moving_stampsOnce the labeling is done, you can open the case.  Remove the stamps from the acetate sheet and stick them to the back of their coordinating label image.

021308_completed_setYou will now be able to tell with one glance exactly what images are included in the set!  It will also be easier to put the stamps back with their respective sets once you are done using them.


A few other notes about the new labeling system…

—>The large labels will be rolled up with the instructions in the stamp packaging.  PLEASE make sure that you do not discard the label.  We order the labels as a specialty item and do not keep many extras on hand, so we would like to try to avoid having to issue any replacements.

—>The new labels will begin appearing in the February release stamp sets.  The older sets will switch to this system as we run out of stock of the current "old" version that we have in inventory.

—>Sometime in the next few months we will offer a collection of labels for purchase for only a few dollars.  This collection will include labels for ALL the sets released prior to February 2008.  You can choose to purchase it, use what you need to switch over your older sets to the new label system and discard the remaining labels (or pass them onto a friend). As a side note, I know there are a select few of you that would use ALL the labels because you own ALL the sets! *wink*

—>Two sheet stamps sets will include TWO labels.  One label will have the spine title and images.  The images from this label should be adhered to the FRONT cover of your case.  The second label will have images all the way across.  This label should go on the BACK cover of your case, as there is a little more width on the back and it can accommodate the untrimmed label.

That is all for today!  I would LOVE to know what you think of this new system! Only a few more days to go until the BIG release party!  I have one more HUGE announcement to make tomorrow.  Or rather one more innovative Papertrey product that you won’t want to miss!  I’ll have all the details for you then!  See you soon!

    That is absolutely fabulous! I love that you will be coming out with sheets from the past releases too! (mainly b/c I have a slight case of OCD and having 2 different style labels would nearly drive me insane!)

    “We love to have everything easily accessible paired with a convenient, orderly method to keep everything that way.”

    Something about this made me giggle because it really appeals to my OCD side! Thanks for bringing your products up another notch! (I can’t imagine how they would get much better!)

    Debbie McKelvey says:

    This I think is the best news yet!! I have wished for something to help me remember what stamp goes where sometimes and it will be a great help for seeing what is in the set. Thanks PTI you always out do yourselves.

  • 35
    Kim P says:

    I’m so happy to hear this! It’s sooo much easier to have that “map” for the clear stamps. It makes stamping with them even easier and quicker! Thanks!!!

  • 36
    Emilia says:

    This is what we all needed! I was going to ask you for this because you had not reveiled it yet and I was a bit worried 🙂
    Last weekend I made my own labels because it was too hard to read the “out on a limb” sentiments. Now, I am pleased that it will be even possible to buy the labels for the older sets. I love Papertrey, I am so addicted!!!

    wonderful news, thank you!

    Angie says:

    What a brilliant idea! I am currently in the process of putting all my unmounted and acrylic stamps into cd cases, with labels, but I didn’t even THINK to put something on the spine! This does the work for me!(not too mention the labels look nicer than mine)

  • 40
    Christi says:

    Oh wow! Just when I thought that PTI couldn’t get any better! These labels are awesome!!! smiles…

  • 41
    Vicki says:

    I am so excited for the PTI storage systems to have labels. Thank you for paying attention to the little details!

  • 42
    Sandy W says:

    Your storage idea is perfect! This looks like a CD case with LABELS to see what’s inside. You can’t imagine how many Iris Carts and plastic boxes I have for holding my stamps! (Not to mention my Sears toolbox) I wish someone had thought of this years ago! With the many great CD storage options, I’ll have room for MORE! 🙂

  • 43
    Loydine says:

    What a great organizational idea! You folks are really on a roll here. And, I especially look forward to the labels for your previous sets.

  • 44
    Sue B says:

    I really need these! Great idea.

  • 45
    Heidi says:

    Great Idea!

  • 46

    Oh thank you! You have just provided a solution to a problem that I needed solved. Now, I’ll just wait for the stickers, instead of trying to make them myself.

    A couple of questions: 1) I thought the new site was supposed to be available on Monday, it still looks the same. Am I not seeing where to register? 2) Where did the forum go? I signed up for that several weeks ago and never got activated. Now it’s gone.

  • 47

    Wow – that’s perfect! I usually just go over my stamps with black StazOn so I can see what they are, but this is WAY BETTER! 🙂

  • 48
    Maria F says:

    Thank you, Nichole! I mix my Papertrey sets all the time and I thought I was the only one to have to go to the website to confirm where to put some away!!! I eagerly await the labels for the ‘older’ sets.

    Linda Collins says:

    This is the best idea I have seen in a long time. I am so happy that I found your site. I love your products. Beautiful colors, beautiful design and great customer service.

    Melissa says:

    This new system is an excellent idea! It seems like you are always predicting what all of us stampers would love! I am so excited about the new labeling system. What a great idea!

  • 51
    Marie says:

    GAH! This is fantastic. Love, love, love it!!!

  • 52
    Heidi K says:

    Love this idea!! As soon as I would get my sets I would stamp every image with Stazon black just so I could stain them to see them! I also love how I won’t have to think of how they will fit!!

  • 53
    Bonnie Sharp says:

    Oh, this is fantastic!! Especially, to offer the label sheets for our other stamp sets!! I can hardly wait for that!

  • 54
    sara Paschal says:

    This is wonderful, no more PTI puzzle pieces when you are trying to fit all of the stamps back in the case, LOL!

    Will you be making the clear CD cases available also? (I have broken one while trying to place everything back in.)

  • 55
    June says:

    This is such a cool idea, often the simplest is the best, this certainly is.

  • 56
    Cathy M says:

    This is AWESOME! Now it will be so easy to store and use these stamps now. You know all the other will be following your creative idea on this….BUT you were the first. Whooo Hooo!

  • 57
    Dawn says:

    You are FANTABULOUS!!! I have always inked my clear stamps up with a dark ink to stain them so that I could read them through the cd, now I won’t have to do that anymore!!! Thank you so much! And thank you for also making the sheets for ALL previous sets too!! So THOUGHTFUL:)

  • 58
    Susan says:

    Yea, I can’t wait to get the labels for the old sets. I find it hard to read the sentiments from inside the cover. I think I will purchase an extra set and put them in a book so I can peruse the stamps without having to get them off the shelf. what a great orgaizational tool. Thanks, Nicole

    holly field says:

    Awesome addition to your already great stamps. I am absolutely thrilled with this announcement. I love that you are going to make the past stamp labels available. I will be buying them!

  • 62
    Erin says:

    I am so glad you did this! I always copy the image from your site, print it, and store it in with my other stamp images in a small album. Now I can use these instead- either in that album, or directly on the CD case as you suggest. Fabulous!

  • 63
    Linda Roberts says:

    Love, love, love the new label system. I’ve always stamped the images on card stock to put in the cases to see what I have but then it’s hard to find the right stamp sometimes. With this system I will be able to find the stamp without any problem. Thank you Nicole for all your wonderful ideas.

  • 64
    Viv (VivLyn) says:

    That is wonderful!!! I might use a sentiment stamp from one of your sets and then forget which one I took it from so this will be great! I will be sure to purchase the back labels when they are available!

  • 65
    Kellie says:

    Yeah!!! This is exactly what I’ve needed, but didn’t know it. I know that now I’ll get even more use out of my sets because I’ll know my inventory 🙂 Thanks!

  • 66
    Laurie says:

    THe new labels are a welcome addition! It is very difficult to see what is what with the clear stamps when they are unmarked. I am also happy to see that you will offer a set of labels for the older sets, because while I don’t have all of them, since I have found PTI I have amassed quite a few of your sets.

  • 67
    Carrie says:

    LOVE THIS! Thank you so much. I find myself going back to the website just to see what stamps are in my sets. THANK YOU!

  • 68
    Kay says:

    You read my mind! Now if only I could read yours, I would know what was coming… LOL!
    I’m so glad you aren’t forgetting the sets that have already been released – it’s the only thing that could make them any better!

    Marilou says:

    What a fantastic idea! Now I will know right away if I am missing a stamp before I put it away!

  • 71
    Rebecca says:

    I love this new system. I am kind of a messy worker when creating and I have stamps from all different sets all over my table. It will be much easier to keep track of which set they came with. I also like the side label. I tried to use the label that previously came with the sets on the side but it wouldn’t stay. This one looks like it would be perfect. Thanks for improving on an already AWESOME product!

  • 72
    Amanda says:

    Yeah, labels!!!!!! I was hoping you would start doing this! 🙂

  • 73
    Jean says:

    The labels are THE answer! Great, great idea and product. This is what we’ve been needing. I’ve been making my own clear labels on acetate. What a timesaver this will be.

    Kickin it up a notch again? This is such a wonderful idea.

    Thankful Hugs,

  • 76
    Elizabeth Knehans says:

    Wow! This is awesome. I love the new labels. They will make it easy to find exactly what you are looking for and help to make sure you aren’t missing any images when you are finished stamping. That’s always been a fear of mind — knowing what I have so I can identify what is missing! I have so many stamps, it’s easy to loss one. I too have a need for everything to match, so I’ll be eager to buy the new labels for the old sets. I’ll need them all!

  • 77
    Wendy says:

    That is sooooo incredibly awesome – I’ve considered stamping with palette on the outside of the cases but this is soooo much better. I will definitely be purchasing the full set of labels!!


  • 78
    Kim Hensley says:

    You amaze me with how you always know just what we need. With more and more PTI acrylic sets all the time, and since I tend to mix and match from sets on my projects, I feel like I have mixed up which stamps go with which sets. I have been wanting some way to keep these organized and this is a wonderful creation! Thanks PTI!

  • 79
    Barb W says:

    I can’t wait to order all the back set labels. I have had problems with my stamp set name label to stay attached, I love the next labeling system. THANKS!

    Wendalyn says:

    This is so great can’t wait to order for past sets too….

  • 81
    Jenny says:

    you read my mind! I started doing this with another company–they have red rubber that you have’ta mount yourself. I don’t mount their stamps, but instead use a temporary bond glue and then use the stickers on the cd case. I am so so so Happy that PaperTrey has decided to do this too. Thanks for reading my mind

    This is such a great idea. What a boost to keeping things organized. Deb

    This is gonna be CRAZY cool! WOW! Nichole, I’m seriously worried that you guys are in my head so much! It’s getting crowded! Hee, hee!

  • 84
    Elisabeth Geers says:

    THIS IS AW SNAP! I love it – my friend Kim showed me how the small label in the old sets was designed to go on the edge of the set – but I was doing it all wrong – this will be AWESOME! Thanks for always thinking outside the box or in this case – INSIDE THE CD CASE! Cannot wait until 2/15 – I am dying here! 🙂 e

  • 85
    Vicki Sopcak says:

    I am extremely organized and love that you are helping make my stamp storage easier. Keep up the good work.

  • 86
    Amber says:

    Yeah! How exciting!

  • 87
    Jeanne says:

    I cannot tell you how very excited I am about this new labeling system! If there was one thing I wasn’t 100% happy about PT sets, it was the lack of something like this. I felt almost guilty wanting to mention it, since everything you do is so fabulous.

    As I work more and more with your stamps, I have found myself trying hard to remember which image goes with which set. But, you have come up with a perfect solution.

    One other little note, I do hope these labels stick a little better than the other ones. I noticed that the spine labels I’ve received up to now lift quite easily and I had to resort to pulling them off and trying to label with my label maker. I even tried adding tape to the other label first, but it all popped up and would stick to the case when opened.

    But honestly, a small inconvenience compared to the joy I feel when working with your stamps!

    Thanks so much for ALL you do!

    Lisa says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is awesome! I’m always using several of your sets together and always forget what set I got them from! I was copying the set from your website and shinking it and then putting it in the case. But this is much easier!

    Wow! I think this is what I’m most excited about! (okay, not really, but I’m thrilled with this change!). I am really starting to become bogged down in clear stamps, and get frustrated that I can’t really see the images. I will definitely be buying the full set of labels when they are available! Congratulations on all your fabulous innovations and changes – you guys are a STELLAR company!

    Casie says:

    I love how you have thought of everything for us. Organizing my stuff is as much of a hobby as stamping itself. With your new packaging system, I will have more time to stamp and less time going to organizing and searching for stamps! THANK YOU NICOLE!! You truly do have your customers best interests in mind.

    Hurray now I don’t have to make my own index cards! I can hardly wait to order the previous sets so it can be neat and tidy in my stamping room…that would be the only tidy thing!

  • 106
    Kris McGinn says:

    Yeah!!! I can’t wait for all the older labels to be released. I sometimes have a hard time reading the sentiments – it will be great to be able to see them without having to hold them up to the light! Any chance you’ll be selling empty plastic cases anytime soon? I am going unmounted, and I’m having a hard time finding them in the stores. They all sell the thin ones, but this size is hard to find. I’d love to be able to purchase extras when I buy stamps. Thanks for all you do.

  • 107
    Michelle G. says:

    Love the new system! Can’t wait for the 15th!

    This is a fantastic idea! I can’t wait till the “old” ones are released!

  • 110
    Emily D says:

    Now that IS AWESOME!
    I had just put all the images from my purchases into a word file so that I could keep it with my clear sets.

  • 111

    Super cool!!!!!
    BTW, just got my Paper Crafts Magazine…
    You are so darn talented!!!!

  • 112

    Very innovative, I would say! I love that you’re constantly working to improve an already GREAT product.

  • 113
    Starla (star) says:

    You gals ROCK!! I love the label idea (I was trying to figure out how I could do something like this with the sets I have)….WONDERFUL idea!

  • 114
    Toni Quayle says:

    Brilliant!!I have been thinking for awhile now that it is a little hard to see what stamps are in the case as they both are clear and kinda hard to see so this should be a wonderful improvement…if that’s possible! thanks again for all of the great things you come up with. Toni

  • 115
    Denise Bennett says:

    That is the perfect answer. As I was stamping the other night and squinting at the outside of the case to see which stamp it was on the other side, I was trying to figure out what would help. As always, you are quick on the implementation of things to help us out! I can hardly wait until Friday!!

  • 116

    What a great idea. I love how you can see right through the cd case.

    I think this is FANTASTIC! It addresses my two (very) minor complaints about Papertrey – now it’s PERFECT!!

    I was just wishing I had something like this for my Papertrey stamps! I definitely will be buying the labels for the older sets when these come out.

    Great idea! I have the Take a Bough set and always have to count up the stamps when I am done to make sure I haven’t misplaced one. This system will be much easier!

  • 122
    Christine says:

    I am thrilled to hear that you have changed your labeling system. I always have such a hard time seeing what each stamp is. Now I will never have that problem again. I love being organized so I am so excited to see the change.

  • 123
    Sue D says:

    What a wonderful improvement! It will make using the sets so much easier. Thanks for thinking of the previous sets too.

    Kristi Saeger says:

    This is fabulous – PaperTrey just keeps getting better and better! I love the way you know and anticipate our needs and exceed them 🙂 I wish I had an ounce of your creativity, Nichole. Your projects are so inspiring and innovative! Continued good fortune to you and your wonderful partners 🙂

    Jennifer Runge says:

    I must say that for me, this might be better then the paper (not really, but close). I have misplaced a few stamps and have been meaning to print the web page, cut the images out and at least have a list of what goes with what. I would love to pre-order the past set stickers!!!

    Dottie K. says:

    I love being organized and this is just perfect for your stamps. I love being able to tell what is where in the case. 🙂

    Marie Greene says:

    Yay, exciting! I’m glad we’ll have those labels now to help us keep the stamps organized in our cases. Yippee!

  • 129
    Kacey says:

    Love this method! I just finished putting ALL of my clear stamps into CD cases, and found myself trimming all of the sheets they come on just to keep the pics too. Fabulous idea you got here; as always innovative, original, and practical!

    ScrapNStampinMama says:

    This is GREAT Nichole!
    Withe Clear stamps its a lil hard to “see” the stamps through the cases. This is PERFECT! Now I will automaticly know what stamp is where!!!!

  • 132
    I am Derby says:

    This label system is something I have been wanting!!! I was thinking of stamping my cases with black staz on but now I dont have to!

  • 133
    Melissa says:

    Oh, my goodness, this has been my one and only (teeny-tiny!) “complaint” about PT stamps. I love having an index so I can just look at the package and see what stamps are in there. THANK YOU implementing this change and for providing us (in the near future) with the indexes for all of the past sets. You PTI girls ROCK!! The days leading up to your anniversary have just been filled with one wonderful announcement after another. Can’t WAIT for the 15th!!!

  • 134
    Ink-Pattie says:

    Love the labels. My clear stamps are nicely stained so I can tell what most of them are, but it will be helpful to see more clearly so I don’t forget about one or two that are still clear!

  • 135
    Jess says:

    I have been wishing for this for so long!! Especially with the latest set I bought, Mixed Messages, I sometimes have difficulty reading which sentiment is which. This is fantastic!

  • 136
    Heather says:

    I just spent last night painstakingly creating a label like this with my Stazon for one of my new sets… I was just dispairing that I had 12 more to go so this is a great thing for me!

  • 137

    oh I LOVE this! fitting them all in there is sometimes a true puzzle! I love organization and neatness with my stamps and storage. Plus – you’ll know if you’re missing a small one!! FANTASTIC!!! I say again – pure creative genius!

  • 138
    Lorie says:

    This is completely fantastic! I have printed off a picture of the sets before and taped it inside the holder but this is SO much better! Thanks Nichole!

  • 139
    Kristin O says:

    Love it, can’t wait until you release them for the sets I already have!

  • 140
    Anya says:

    Oh Nichole, your are a GENIUS! I am so excited about the new storage system (the labels!)- it is exactly what I have been waiting for! And thank you SO much for offering the labels for the older sets, too! This is just fantastic! (Can you tell I’m excited?)

  • 141
    Beth says:

    YAY! lovin the new label system – and i will defnitely be on the list for the labels for last years releases – yes i will need almost every one of them!

  • 143
    Cheryl says:

    Wonderful!!!!! I have had a problem in the past with the labels and especially when I tried repositionining them. The print comes off. These look great. I’m especially excited by the “side” label.

    Glad to see I can order “replacements” soon.

  • 144
    monkeymama says:

    These new labels are awesome—they will be especially handy for the small word stamps which can be hard to read!

    ooohh – LOVE this!! I was just thinking the other day about stamping each image onto paper and then taping it to my case for easy reference. Now I won’t have to do that!! YEAH!!!

  • 160
    Gerri K says:

    Storage will be perfect with the labels!

  • 161
    Niki says:

    Yay! Love the new system and thank you so much for thinking of those of us who already have so many of your sets! This system will help so much with some of those small sentiments that it can be hard to find. Love it!

  • 162
    Susan Todd says:

    Nichole – GREAT idea!!! I have been making my own stickers for the side of the CD cases, now I don’t have to! 🙂
    you are amazing……I am so happy that you have achieved such success in your venture.

  • 163

    I am such a organizational – label freak… so I *heart* u Papertrey for the new labels!!!!



  • 164

    what a thoughtful nice innovation, Nichole!!! can’t wait for the party!!!

    The lables are great – I peer at my stamps sometimes to figure out what it says – I’m so excited about the new sets and the ability to buy labels for the older sets!

  • 170
    Sharon Canter says:

    The labeling system is great! Thank you for making this storage system easier for us. Sometimes the small “word” stamps are hard to read, and this system will be so much better.

  • 171
    Lisa Carter says:

    I love the new lable system!
    (I was going to ask about getting a replacement lable for my Butterfly Kisses, but now I will wait and get the set of new ones.)

    I do have one question:
    can I order replacement CD cases?
    (My Daughter dropped two of them and the hinges broke right off.)
    And, should another case get broken, will the new lables peel and restick, or will we have to get a whole new set each time we have to replace a case?

  • 172
    Julia (Artystamper on SCS) says:

    This is terrific – I have actually been printing the page of stamps from your website and reducing it, cutting it down and attaching it to the front of the cd cases – but it has been messy! so glad you have come up with this!!

  • 173
    Elizabeth S. says:

    Wonderful idea, just love it. It will be so much easier to see what is in the set at a glance. Glad you are going to even make the labels for last years set. You are always thinking about your customers.
    Keep up the great work.

  • 174
    Ann says:

    I love the label idea. It will make it so easy for me to find what set and stamp I’m looking for. Thanks Nichole!

  • 175
    Tona says:

    Looks like a great system. I’m all about organization.

  • 176

    This is a fabulous idea. Once I put my stamps in the case I would rub a black stamp pad over it so that I could tell which stamps/sentiments were in that set, this will be SO much better. Thanks for making stamping easy for us.

  • 177
    Alice says:

    Fabulous idea! I am forever finding the correct stamp. That is because I have so many. This will be a terrific system for me to use. Also, can’t wait for the entire sets to be released with just the images. Hopefully, that will be soon. KUDOS to you and your staff.

  • 178
    Isabel says:

    This is a fabulous idea!!! It will prevent me from continuing to squint trying to figure out what the wording is on the smaller sayings. These old eyes don’t work like they once used to. Thanks for yet another amazing idea. I wish you continued success:)

  • 179
    Kisa Peters says:

  • 180

    I love the new labeling system. I made my first purchase from you a few weeks ago and wasn’t thrilled with the lack a sheet to view the stamps. Thanks so much for making this change.

  • 181
    Sharron Gregory says:

    Great addition. The new labels will be a wonderful organizational tool!

  • 182
    Jodi Raeburn says:

    Brilliant idea nad easy for us to pick up a cd holder to keep them all organized in. Thank you for a great new idea!!!!

  • 183
    Judy S says:

    This is a GREAT idea! Thanks, Nichole!

  • 184
    Kristyn Sinnott says:

    WOW! I love this storage idea. I was just thinking I need to somehow keep a record of all the stamps so I don’t forget what I have. Now when I get the labels, I’ll photo copy them and keep them in a binder for reference. I’m so happy when I’m organized. Thanks, Nichole for reading my mind.

  • 185
    Angi says:

    I was just thinking the other day how this is label system is something that was needed. I am looking forward to it. Thanks, Nicole!

    Chelle says:

    oh wow…I thought I was as excited as I was gonna get about the new releases…boy, was I wrong…this anal crafter is beside herself! any thing that is related to organization gets me goin’!! Thank you for this!!!! brings me much, much joy!!!

  • 187
    Shannon says:

    I have been DREAMING of this! You don’t know how many times I have been tempted to stamp all my images in black just so they will stain and I can see them clearly! Thanks Nichole!!!

  • 188
    scrappingmom says:

    Wonderful idea. It would be so much easier to remember which case a stamped belonged. Many times I am using more than one set.

  • 192
    Linda C. says:

    PERFECT! I had a set out just yesterday & wished I had a printed label to make sure I had all those little parts put back correctly!

  • 193

    Oh, I’m so excited about this. Thank you!

  • 194

    Lynn says:

    Makes me want to get my first papertrey stamps even more! I think it will have to be the polka dot set!

    what a great idea – I’ve tried to make my own storage cases and it has not been successful – I love your idea and it makes it so much easier! 🙂

  • 198
    Lynn says:

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS ADDED FEATURE…cannot wait until they become available for older sets. Have I thanked you for keeping your prices at a nice “round” number? Thank you for that too!! Can’t wait to buy my “Tiffany Blue” and my lovely boxes.

  • 199
    Kim Leach says:

    And just when I was thinking that your stamps, supplies and ideas couldn’t get any better!! And now a GREAT idea AND you’re even thinking of those of us who already own sets! You totally ROCK Nichole!!

  • 200
    Marla says:

    This is such a huge thing. I have trouble seeing what my stamps are, especially the words, they are so hard to read. Now I can have the label and know exactly what stamp to use. THANK YOU!

  • 201
    Sandy Rails says:

    This is the best way to show off those stamps! You’re a genius!

  • 202
    Judie C. says:

    Thank you! Finally! The lack of labels is the ONLY thing wrong with your beautiful stamps. Now they will be perfect. Can’t wait for the opportunity to get labels for the stamps I already have. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • 203
    Deanna Wolfe says:

    OMG you have thought of just about everything I say just about cause I know that you will still surprise us again !!!lol The labels are like “icing on the cake” it will make life easier for the small stamps that are hard to see ! And yes I like the idea of getting the older ones 🙂

  • 204
    Leslie Elvert says:

    Fantastic! I am so glad these labels will also be available for previously purchased sets. Thanks!

  • 211
    Olivia says:

    I love that this set is intruded with the case. I am all about organizing and finding containers. Now if I could just get off the computer and “do something”, I will be set! This like all of your sets is beautiful!

  • 212
    Marnie says:

    Yay, that is such a fantastic idea. I have been wondering how to create my own covers, now I don’t have to. I will wait the new arrival in your store…

  • 213
    Alice (2katjes at scs) says:

    The labels will be great! I made my own for the sets I own, and I was thinking it was too bad that the sets didn’t come with CD case labels. You must have read my mind! Or, is it ‘great minds think alike?’ LOL

  • 214
    Tonya says:

    Ahhhh! How wonderful, to actually be able to see the stamped images on the packaging!

  • 215

  • 220
    Cindy says:

    I decided to store all my clear stamps in cd cases because it is such a great idea. I found a clear CD holder that holds 12 CD’s [I don’t have 75 sets yet:)].I removed the little rubber feet from the side so it sits upright and the CDs are flat so I can read the labels. After discovering PapertreyInk last month and looking at your studio I have been re-organizing my craft area for 3 weeks and I am loving it!
    I sure appreciate your website and blog and all the wonderful ideas you share:)

    You never cease to amaze me. I just got back from Maine (I was brought up in Bangor Maine
    and have a son in Bath/Brunswick. Actually in Arrowsic. Good to hear there are a few Mainer’s around in the stamping world. Thanks for the tutorial.

    Carol DeChristopher says:

    Hi Nichole! I just love your website. Your stamps sets are so wonderful and I love working with them! I was wondering if you have a tutorial on how to make a piece of cake box or where I could find one. Thanks so much! Have a great day! Carol D.

    Tessa Gilbert says:

    Thank you for the inspiration. We have moved within the last year and it has taken me 7 months to get out my stamping stuff! I love the Pond Life set, with little boys this is perfect. I am using the gel card on your site as an inspiration for my son’s birthday invitations to the U-Fish and the Pond Life set is just what I needed. I only had to go to one site to find the perfect set and inspiration!
    Thank you!
