    Good Morning Connie, What a brilliant idea with the Polymer stamps! I guess this is a natural for you since you came up with the flash card idea. I am amazed at what you can do with that mind of yours. Thanks so much for both these wonderful ideas and sharing them on your site. If I didn’t already have a demonstrator I’d pick you. Thanks again for your sharing and wonderful sunny disposition.

      Aww, you’re sweet Evelyn! It’s nice to have a demonstrator you enjoy working with who lives nearby. 🙂

    LOOOOOVE THIS TIP!!!!! Oh Connie, I also totally dislike the way Photopolymer stamps come in, that window sheet is sometimes so darn hard to peel off, I don’t like the noise it makes either when you need to get the stamp at the top of it and you have to yank that transparency off, and that’s why this tip you are sharing with us today is PRICELESS!!!!!
    Thank you so, so much for coming up with this marvelous idea, the wheels in your mind are in constant movement and we are totally benefiting from this.

    • Connie says:

      LOL! I hate that window sheet too! The only time you will have a problem with this are with BIG sets like Flower Patch. There are 3 sheets in that pack so you will have to keep one of the windows sheets inside. I chose the one with just 4 stamps on it.

    Love your tip for the polymer stamp storage! !!!

  5. I LOVE THIS IDEA !!! Connie, in French I’d say ” j’en ai le menton à terre ” … hummm if translated word to word it would probably be like : ” I’ve got my chin down on the ground ” !!! I don’t know what would be the right thing to say but anyway … I’m just saying that it’s an amazing and so simple idea 😉 Thanks so much !

    Thanks Connie I just love this idea. Also, thanks for the info concerning the light.

    What a great tip…that new Birthday Wishes polymer stamp didn’t come with a box…boo-hoo! But, will do this with the rest! Connie, why can’t Stampin Up print what the stamp is on the back of the stamp like other companies? They hold up well and are so easy to line up…do you know ? You are the go to person???

    • Connie says:

      I am not sure but it think this might be one of the differences between polymer and photopolymer and the process it takes to make these two different types of stamps. There is a difference in them.

      I have to be honest though… for me personally, I don’t want the image on the stamp. I want to see right through it when I am trying to line things up. Again, that’s just me.

  9. Mary Lee says:

    Love how you attached the printed sheet. Backwards, doesn’t work for me though, 🙂 , so I put it in so I can read the words and place the stamp above each one. So far this has been doable. Thank you for being so generous with your great ideas!

    • Connie says:

      Mary Lee, I see what you’re saying. I line mine up with the exact image and what you’re saying is you place the stamp on “backwards” (or mirror). That’s the beauty of the idea — do what works for you! Thanks for sharing the other option! 🙂
