Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
After much discussion, it looks like this is the best way to go in order to share the inserts that we make for sets we originally bought in wood mount and want to keep long term in their unmounted state using the Stampin' Up! format for the cases and the index sheet.
There are 95 stamp sets that have already been created in either a JPG insert or a PDF insert or both. Some are available in green (current set) and orange (retired set) so this transfer will take a while. Some of these have been duplicated already. I will just add all of them to this thread so there will be duplicates. Maybe one artist's work will work better for you. Who knows! Might as well have options!!
I am also concerned that they print out as they should (not too concerned about the PDFs, but the JPGs can be wonky!) so if you print it out and it does not work, let me know.
For all of these downloads, they work best if you save the image to your hard drive, then open it and print it.
For the most part, these talented ladies made these with SU! My Digital Studio.
Put your hands together and give them a big woo-woo when you use their template!
Eventually I will add a spreadsheet to this post so that you can see what sets are here to use as well as a guide so that you don't spend a lot of time on one that is already done! DONE!!!
It never fails to amaze me how wonderful people on this site are about sharing their work. Thanks to all!

I posted these instructions a while back on another thread - my sample is in my gallery:
Hi all: I will post the steps, also, if I can figure out how to share the file with you - I will do that too!
I am going to type the steps literally as I am doing them as boxes pop up starting at the ultra beginnning:
1) open MDS
2) from the New Project Options box select: MULTIPLE OUTPUT OPTIONS
3) from the Multiple Output Size Options box select: 8 1/2" x 11" LANDSCAPE
4) from the Choose a Template box select: CREATE YOUR OWN
5) Name your project: I chose "DVD Case Template"
6) from the Add a New Page box select: BLANK PAGE then OK
***I make sure to have my ruler showing at this point - to do this go to "view" and select "Rulers"***
7) On the Resource Palette (the menu on the left) I select the Flower (embelishments) - then click browse
Under select a category I chose "DESIGNER KITS" - these have borders in them that I used for the top band
9) Select the borders you want to use and click OPEN
10) Choose your border and and drag it on to your page (or double-click it)
11) Once it's on your page it opens the Embellishment menu on the right of the screen - CLICK ROTATE 90 DEGREES TO RIGHT
12) Align to the top of your page
13) On the Embellishment menu - change the opacity to 80 or less (this allows you to see the logo and name easier once printed)
14) Find a Stampin' Up! logo off of their webpage that they allow us to use (or hopefully use the one I have in my file) Double click the logo and resize to fit in space. I also changed its opacity to 80
15) I aligned the left side of the logo on 5" on my top ruler
16) next copy & paste the logo, rotate 90 degrees and shrink to 1/2" - I aligned it between 4" and 4 1/2" on the top ruler
17) then along the top bar choose the Capitol T for a text box - once you do the text menu on the right will open - type your title and choose your font - position in the title bar next to the logo
1 select your title, copy, paste, rotate 90 degrees to the right and align under small SU logo
19) now go back to the left menu (Resource Palette) and select the stamp
20) select Browse and choose your stamp set and click open
21) again, drag your stamps on to the page and center on the right half of your page. be sure to stay on centered under the larger SU logo and the right edge of the page - that's your guide
22) then I created another text box and filled it with hyphens and made it from the 5" on the top ruler to the edge of the page (you may be able to add and embellishment of stitching but I haven't tried it yet) - I put this line of hyphens to match up with the 8 1/8" measurement on my side ruler
23) under the hyphen line - I put another text box with the number of stamps and changed the color of the text to gray
***someone on another thread also put a text box under the hyphen line that said: "Belongs To: " ***** which I will be including from here on out
24) then I dragged each stamp on again - resized them to fit between 4" and 4 1/2" along the top ruler and rotated 90 degrees to the right and lined them up under the side view title
25) then I printed and used an insert from my SAB set to draw the cut lines - cut it out and slipped it in a case to see if it would work
I like this because I can change the borders to be whatever colors to organize my categories of stamps
I hope this is clear
Here it my "template" that I have been going off of when making them and converting them into a PDF.
(I'm way more Word savvy than MDS!)
I'm "cheating" so far and have been using the images from the PDF catalogs/minis -hence if anyone has printed them out, they may turn out slightly lighter than a normal black and white because of this. (I use the "snipping tool" to cut and paste the image from the PDF - "grab" if you're on a mac)
I have left the relavant words so you know the position of the text boxes.
If you want an easy trick to make the side label, once you've pasted your image (moved to back) :
Right Click, Select Size and Position: Here you can do two steps at once...
Rotate 90 degrees and Shrink anywhere from about 20-25%.
Move into position and you're set to go!
Hope that gets some of you started!
