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.

If you’d like to use my “Current Product” files, email me and I’ll send you an invitation to get the program and to share my files. I get credit (to pay for more time at the Premium level) when I invite you. Imagine, an online catalog you can search not just by stamp name, but by each image or word.

When you access my files you will see my entire notebook of current products. You won’t be able to make any changes to my files and if you search for “I own” you’ll see what I own, not what you own. If you want to make the notes your own, you can export them to your computer and then import them to your own notebook. Then you can change them all you want. I suggest the first change is to delete the tag “I own.” If you delete (or change) a tag, it will automatically change all the notes with that tag. Once that tag is deleted, you can adding a new tag to the products you do actually own. Even without importing the files, you will be able to search and scroll just like I can.

I’m sure there are errors and omissions. If you find any (or have other suggestions), please let me know so I can fix them and share them with you and with others!

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 all of the notes (CMD + A) (or Control A)
    • Or just copy the notes for the products you own by holding down the Control or CMD key and clicking on the notes you want.
  4. Right click and select “copy to notebook.” 
    • Be sure to check the boxes to Preserve Created and Updated Dates and especially Preserve Tags.
  5. The notes will appear in the notebook in your account.
    • Not sure, but you may run into the limit if you are using the free version.  You can choose to get the Premium version for one month or copy as many as you can and then wait a month to copy some more.

  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

      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!
