Christmas is an exciting time with much anticipation and preparation involved. I find that it is not uncommon to discover that once the flurry of Christmas preparations are past, that I have a number of new items to organize into my craft room. Some I receive as gifts, but many of them are purchased to make a special gift for a loved one. Clear alphabet stamps are a wonderful solution to keeping your craft room organized.
Clothes pins are an easy and attractive way to keep things organized. The clothespin above is labelled organize and is a quick convenient way of making sure that you get things put away especially if you don’t have time to do it right now. Clothes pins can also be used to label small paper scraps, color, paper projects etc. They can also be labelled with the name of a child or event. Once labelled they can help you keep memorabilia organized until you are ready to construct the scrapbook pages.
Papers can get rather bulky sitting in baskets. This is a fabulous way to organize memorabilia specific to one person that you wish to scrapbook in the future. A sticky label can easily be stamped on with clear alphabet rubber stamps to create an easy to read, uniform and attractive way to organize your craft room.
When new supplies are purchased you may need to label a new box or container specific to that project. In the above photo, clear alphabet rubber stamps are used to create a bold and beautiful label for this box of supplies.
Clear alphabet rubber stamps can even help you organize your kitchen! Above you will see a label made for snacks, making it easy to see and know what you have currently on hand in your cupboards. Using this method, your kitchen cupboards coordinate and you will be delighted every time you open the cupboard door.
Of course clear hobby rubber stamps are so much easier to use when they are organized into categories. At Clearly Rubber Stamping, stamps are presorted into categories by color, but the photo above shows a wonderful way of decorating clear dividers with easy to read labels that help you find exactly what you are looking for when you are creating a new rubber stamping project.
Have a very Happy New Year

Like traditional rubber stamps, clear hobby stamps allow you to create beautiful designs even if you don’t consider yourself artistic. However, have you ever purchased a clear stamp that just didn’t perform right? Recently I decided to try some cute Disney clear stamps purchased from another company and available at the local WalMart. I was very disappointed with the quality of the stamp as well as the image produced. The stamps, though clear were hardly tacky, hard to peel off the carrier and did not produce a clean crisp image. Once I was done with the stamp, it was hard to get it to stick back onto the carrier sheet. To get a decent image I tried rubbing a vinyl eraser over the design. It helped a little, but the ink still was not uniform and evenly placed.
Purchasing quality clear stamps can be tricky online as you are unable to handle the product before purchasing. Unless, the website tells you, you have no way to gauge how tacky and flexible the product you are interested in will actually be. To make it easier for you to get the quality you are looking for Clearly Rubber Stamping has made it a priority to carry ONLY the best quality clear stamps on the market. You will always find flexible stamps that are naturally tacky and easy to position. They can even be bent or flexed to take on a slightly different shape. They are soft and pliable and if dirt inhibits the self stick feature, simply wash them in water to restore tackiness. Crisp, clean images will appear on your craft projects and delight you with the ease of being artistic using your quality clear hobby stamps.
Happy Stamping to All
