Default Using evernote to organize stamps?

Okay, i am new to stamping and don' thave tons of stamps...yet. LOL. But based on my experience in scrapbooking, things will quickly get out of hand, so I'd like to start with an organizational method right off the bat that works.

I use evernote already for my life stuff, so thought this sounded interesting. I have a very small craft space, so i was thinking of just putting my stamps in ziplocks and labelling each one, then noting in evernote which stamps i had and where they were.


Interested in hearing others thoughts!!

I use Evernote to organize my stamps - I do have mine by category, in plastic card boxes... each box has a code that I use as a tag in Evernote so I can find images and know where each one is. That works soooo well!

Here's a blog post where I describe my system.

Here's another vote for Evernote! My collection of stamps isn't as extensive as Dina's, so it wasn't as mammoth a task as that must have been (impressive job, Dina)! I now have most of my stamps done, and I started doing the dies a few months ago. I seem to have lost steam for that project, but talking about it here is making me think it's time to get back to it.

I'd encourage you to start now, while you don't have many stamps. It's much easier to create your notebooks as you go, instead of creating them a couple of years from now. Have fun with it – I really enjoy putting together good systems like this!

I'm converting now, and I've got way too many stamps to stamp them all, scan them, then put them in Evernote. Someone here just introduced me to the Evernote clipper add-on. It can take a snapshot or screenshot of web image and save directly to Evernote.

I list my stamps by manufacturer, and then set name if applicable (For example: Raisin Boat: Get in Gear). I then tag away to make sure I can find that set (for example: gear, bicycle, steampunk).


Using the web clipper, I'm finding as many images of my stamps and sets as I possibly can on-line, then save that image to my notebook. Saves me so much time.


Here's a sample of one of my notes. It's for the Amuse Studio Contemporary Greetings set. My tags are along the top, and other notes in my stamp notebook are on the left site.




If I can't find a decent image on-line, I see if my storage system has an image of the set I can scan (such as the DvD cover, like with the set above). If that fails, I stamp the images and then scan them using my Fujitsu Scan Snap.

I also note how the set or stamp is stored. For me, that means wood (all wood stamps are in a cabinet by general theme), cling, cling sleeve (means in an Avery Elle Pocket instead of a DvD case), bare (all in Avery Elle pockets), or clear (also all in Avery Elle pockets). Since my storage, aside from wood, is by manufacturer, I can put my hands on any of my stamps in sections.

if you are using a windows OS on your computer you "should" have something called snipping tool and it will allow you to copy and paste images of sets found online to your notebooks also without having to re-photograph and process the photos to use.

You can also drag and drop images from files or websites - that's super quick and easy!

Does anyone know I can send my notes to a friend? I'm confusing on the Sharing feature. It looks more like she would be able to see my notes (the ones that are shared) not have a copy of her own, I think.

Can someone walk me through step by step how to add tags?
I have Evernote Basic on my iPad.
I have successfully created a notebook called Stamp Inventory. I can open the add a new note function. I type in the title "Lovely as a Tree" for example. Tap the camera icon and take a picture of the set and save. BUT I WANT TO ADD TAGS!
HOW do I tag the picture with words like trees, leaves, fall...etc.
I've tried every icon I can find and it's not working!!

Cobby, I've put you an answer that should help in your General Stamping Thread. X
