I am a bit confused. You want to put the stamps loose in the envelopes? I've never seen that. Intriguing.

I can tell you from experience that the front of the stamps won't stick to paper, at least...

I think the magnets are to keep cardstock in place when you don't want to place it flush against the corner for some reason. It keeps the cardstock from moving.

This is very clever. The shimming...

I find the top of my clears stick to the page protectors, which isn't harmful but is annoying, so I have a paper index sheet between the stamps and the PP.

I was stunned that you could put a hot iron on that clear stamp and it didn't melt!

If you have the diecut shape, you can scan it in and save it as a data file. Then you can cut it out whenever you want. Or resize it. I've scanned some of my punched shapes in.
