You are so smart! What a great idea! TFS

Sage Kimble

What a great idea, Gretchen. I have gone through stamp sets and stamped the sentiments on a page in my notebook, but this looks much handier. I will try it myself.

Terry Molineux

OMGosh!!! What an awesome idea. You should send this in to SU bet you would win!!!! I am going to do this tomorrow as it's midnight here in NY and my eyes are closing....Thank you so much for sharing!

Lisa Bryan

Now that is one smart idea.


I did something similar to that recently. I stamped all my sentiments in a little notebook. I used my tab punch to make tabs for Happy Birthday, Thank You, Love, etc. Now it is so much easier to find different sentiments instead of always using the same one!!

Terri Stewart


Laura W.

No really, you are brilliant. I have so many doo-dads on rings, binders, all over, and I've never thought of something like this. LOVE this idea! Thanks for sharing!

Sarah Miller

I'm always looking for a particular stamp and spend too long looking.
Great idea!


FABULOUS idea :)


Pure genious!

Janet Smith

Amazing! Such a simple solution to such a monumental problem! Thanks for the idea!

Greetings from Germany

jo ann

loving this idea for its cuteness alone, never mind having just the right words and knowing just where to find them!!! and organizing is a good thing to do as we wait most impatiently for june 1 and PREORDER!!!
thanks for sharing and ...
jo ann.


Thank you so much for the brilliant idea.

Stella B

I LOVE this idea!!! I know the first thing I want to do when school closes for the summer and I have plenty of "ME" time.

Kristen Spencer

WOW excellent idea!!Lots of work But......in the end I bet this would really pay off like using sets I don't even realize I have.....Hmmm its rainy here today perhaps I should get started!!

Vicky W

Brillant idea Gretchen. Thank you so much for sharing.....


This is a great idea! I think I will put mine in a Rolodex. TFS!

Joycelynne Sims

You are so smart. What a fantastic idea.
Thank you for sharing with us. I love your site. I think you are fantastic with all your work.

Juliana Bibas

Brilliant! Now why didn't I think of that??

Janet Higerd

What a great idea! I am currently working on an inventory notebook of all my stamp sets so I can see what belongs in each set - now I may have to do something like this as well. The gals in my group would like it so they could see the size and shape of each sentiment if it would fit on a card or not. Thanks!


Sharon L

Love this idea. Another project to add to my list. I'll be so organized, I'll scare me!
Sharon L

Tania Brzovic

What an awesome idea! I love it!!!

Nancy C.

This is a great idea! I just spent so much time today looking for a sentiment and going through all my different stamp sets! This is definitely on my list of things to do!

Leslie Jones

I have wanted to do something like this forever! I started a stamp inventory, with every stamp in the set on one page, but realized it wasn't really doing what I wanted. I wanted the sentiments organized. Just like you have done! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Amanda Mertz

Great idea! Thanks for Sharing it!

Jeri Cyr

OMG! What a terrific idea. Do you mind if I share it with my customers?

Stay well,

JoAnn Burnham

What a great idea. Thanks for sharing it.


What a brilliant idea! TFS!

Stacy H.

What a wonderful idea! I also think I'd like to stamp on WW and VV some frequently used sentiments and have them already punched out so that I could quickly adhere them to a card that I've already made without a sentiment. Thank you for the inspiration.


That is a super idea!!! Thanks a bunch!


Sue Anderson

Thanks, Gretchen, for sharing your wonderful idea! I have made a spreadsheet with the words from stamp sets, but am always behind in entering the information. This will be much better!

Sue Anderson

I am constantly searching for greetings as well!! Thanks for sharing this BRILLIANT idea!!


Great idea. You are absolutely correct...I end up using the same sentiments if i don't know all that I own.


Gretchen--as always you are such a wonderful source of info! This is a GREAT idea!!!
TFS, Nola

This is DEFINITELY one of the BEST ideas I've ever heard of!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us!! I'm also glad to know I'm not the ONLY who forgets where all the sentiments are! Lol


I never would have thought of that! I constantly am taking out all my sets (over 100) to search for a certain saying and make a total mess!! This is a great idea - thanks for sharing!!

OMG!!! This is awesome Gretchen!! I will be featuring this idea on My Crafty Picks #22 with a link back to your blog on 6-26-11. If you wish to decline please email me at [email protected]

Take care


WOWZA!!!! With all of the demonstrators facing the same problem over and over again I am amazed it took this long for the genius to awaken but you HAVE!!!!! Thank you for sharing such an easy and practical way to find all those words we know we have. YOU ROCK GRETCHEN!!!!! Hugs and "blessings" ~Donna


So super smart! TFS!!!

Anne Marie

Wow, Gretchen! This is such a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful inspiration here on your blog. Hugs! :)


What a great idea! I too have stamped complete sets and sorted that way, althought that didn't really achieve what I wanted. I love the look of the rings, but will probably stamp mine onto cheap cardstock and divide in dvd cases. Thanks for sharing!

Celia Cawthon

I am SO glad Tiffany posted your idea on her Crafty Picks .... This is exactly my dilemma, and now solved. I think it would make a great Club project, too!

Kris McIntosh

Sensational idea. I will be doing this when the new catty comes out in Aus. Then I will know exactly what I have. Thanks for sharing.

Jeannie (blue)


A Facebook User

Donna Amos

I am like most everyone and have spent way too much time looking for the perfect sentiment and the size of the sentiment. Where did you find your rings?
