Evernote screenshot (2)Evernote is a free program that I have on my laptop and phone. I have “notebooks” for project ideas, color combinations, and products. I have spent way too much time creating notes for every current Stampin’ Up! product. But the time invested has been worth it to me. I can scroll through the stamp sets I own, browsing for what I want, search for all the stamps to say “thanks,” or search for every set that has a flower or tree. Love it!

Evernote is on both my laptop and my phone and they are synchronized so I can scroll through the catalog or just the products I own from anywhere. I can find what I need (or want) on Evernote. Theoretically I could keep my products tucked in various corners of my home and still be able to find them with Evernote. Here’s a video how I use it.

New edit as of 9/3/18 I have been sharing my notebook for free for several years. I have notes for every current product. I do my best to keep the notebook complete and accurate, including product numbers, page numbers, and prices for US, Canada (English and French), UK, France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. I also try to add Dutch translations. Virtually all of the page numbers are the same, but I do include imperial and metric item numbers, 8 ½” x 11” and A4 card stock, and the metric Simply Scored plate, and the Heat Tool with the various plugs, etc. It takes time to make sure my notes are useful and correct for all to use. I have decided to ask for a small contribution.

You can try my Evernote notebook for the products that were in last year’s catalog that were carried over to the current catalog. I have moved the retired products out of it. I have not added the new products or changed any page numbers or other details. I will not be updating it. But you can try it for free. You can download the free app free and then select either View or Join the notebook with this link.

If you download the program and notebook, you can create a new notebook for your own products. You can copy the notes for the products you own into your own notebook. When you copy notes, be sure to click Preserve Update Dates and especially Preserve Tags! Then you can make whatever changes you want to the notes in your own notebook.

You can browse through all the products, but the beauty of the program is that you can search. Good search terms include text you want, “Coordinates with” or some image like “tree.” Look for the tag Evernote for some tips that might be helpful.

If you are interested in getting the new 2018-2019 Current Products notebook, click here to find my PayPal button. You can give $5 or $10 with the drop-down menu. Be sure to enter the email address you use to log into Evernote. When you contribute any amount, PayPal will notify me and I will send the invitation to share the new 2018-2019 Current Product notebook with you. I will also invite you to a private Facebook group just for those sharing my Evernote notebooks. Facebook is my way of communicating with the group. If you use one email address for PayPal and another for Evernote and/or Facebook, please enter that info in the PayPal text box or email me so I can use the correct address for the invitations.

When you access my files you won’t be able to make any changes to my files. If you want to make the notes your own, you can copy them to your own notebook. Then you can change them all you want.

This lady created her stamp inventory on Evernote, so it is right up our alley!  She uses tags for everything where I have just added text in the note. Evernote will search the text in the note. 10 minutes

A Google search for Evernote Tutorials brought up 2,980,000 results, so I’m sure you can find out everything you need to know.

And if you are sharing my Evernote notebook and want to copy my notes into your own notebook:

  1. Create a notebook to copy the notes into.
  2. Go to the joined notebook.
  3. Select the notes you want.
  4. On Windows, right click and select “copy to notebook.” 
    • Be sure to check the boxes to Preserve Created and Updated Dates and especially Preserve Tags.
  5. On some devices you will highlight the note, and select “duplicate” and select your notebook.
  6. On the free/Basic version of Evernote, there is a lime on how much data you can add per month. Viewing my notes does not add data, but copying my notes does. If you run into to limit, just wait until the month has passed and add more notes. You can find where you are on the data limits and the date you can start adding more data on your Accounts page.

  1. I Bev I am a new Independent Stamin’ up Demonstrator in Australia (all of 2 months). I just love your site & your youtube videos. I work full time and now a demonstrator I need to be organised & you sit gives me loads of ideas. I saw Evernote on your site & the video so recently downloaded this software. I was hoping you might share your product files with me? If you only share with in the U.S.A would you be willing to give me a few tips on how to get the products into Evernote.
    Many thanks & a great fan to your website

  2. Bev, I would love to use your “Current Product” files. I tried to email, but the link in the post above wouldn’t work for me.

    Thanks so much

    • @Julie, I have sent you an invitation to join my Evernote notebook. Sorry the link didn’t work for you. I don’t know what is wrong with the email. I don’t see any error in the code and when I click the link it initiates an email. Is anyone else having problems with the email link?

  3. I would love to have a looksy at your evernote file to see how Evernote can help me with my constant disorganization. #demo10yearsinaugust

    • Welcome Cassie! You should be receiving invitations from Evernote to get the program and to share my notebook named “Current Products.” I think the Evernote link takes you to the online version first. Once you have accepted the invitation to share, I think you will find it helpful to open Evernote on your computer/phone and view from there. It may take a while to synchronize. Look for the tag “Evernote Tips” for a bit more help.

      Enjoy!

      Bev

  4. This is so very kind of you to offer. Thank you

    • BevAdamsStamps

      You’re quite welcome! I’ve been hard at work updating my files for the new catalog. I’ll add the images in as soon as the catalog goes live. Enjoy!

  5. Bev, thank you so much for providing these awesome resources. I can wait to start using my Evernote file. 🙂 Could you please send me a link to download. I have subscribed and look forward to receiving your newsletters.

  6. I appreciate all the info! Could you please send me an invitation? Thank you.
