Sweet Treat Thursday -- My Little Book of Stamps

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

What I have to share with you today is not a sweet treat but a treat to ME. I've been wanting to do an inventory book of all my stamps for quite a while now, and this week was my deadline. Since I'll be back to work soon (maternity leave will be over soon) I really need to get things done to reduce my TO DO list!! So here's my inventory book:

It uses Play date DSP along with coordinating CS in So Saffron, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Chocolate Chip, lots of Whisper White paper and a couple o buttons. As I mentioned earlier it took me a week to do it, I had to ink-stamp-clean every single stamp I own and sometimes twice to organize them in their proper sections (all sentiments togheter). But I really believe it was so worth the effort -- no more searching throught dozens of boxes for the right sentiment or image. Efficency, Yeah!!
Something that also took a long time is the crystal effect on the letters, there is 5 coats and I let each of them dry overnight eventhough it's was long, I think it's the thing I like the most its ULTRA SHINY AND THICK so yummy!! Did you see my FAUX-CHIPBOARD letters ?? Curious on how I made them ?? It will be our next quick tip of the week.
