    Good morning Bev,
    Last week I received a very exciting package from you!!!
    I ordered plastic bags and most of your tag shapes on frosted plastic material.
    I so wish I had come across your site long ago – but then I am very excited that I can appreciate all your wonderful and kind knowledge and experience even more.

    I thought for sure I had seen a site or link to what you had copied for the cases of different framelits and dies – to photocopy – which will result in proper filing and keeping of these precocious items. Can you please direct me this magic spot? Thank you so much! Christine

      Thank you for your sweet words! The case insert can be found just below where you found the Taggers. Just go to Products by Bev and scroll down. The link for the case insert and the directions are just above the Paper Sampler.

    I just happened to find your site today as I was watching your video on card base sizes and different mat sizes which I found to be extremely helpful. I then browsed your site and found your organizational and storage ideas, also very helpful. I was wondering though if you have any ideas on how to organize and store your Designer series papers. I have tons of DSP from years back which I tend not to use because of the time it takes for me to find the right color and pattern. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

      Susan, I store my DSP in large bags. I had a hard time finding the bags and ended up buying a case of very heavy duty resealable bags. I sell these bags… just click on the tab for Products from Bev. I also sell a Paper Sampler (current colors only) that you can use to identify colors in the DSP. I create labels for the DSP that lists the catalog and coordinating colors. I also use Evernote to organize all my products. You can click on the Techy Tips tab to learn about Evernote.

      With Evernote, you can search through all your paper on your computer. You can find the color or pattern you want by searching Evernote for it. Then you can use that wonderful paper.

      Those tips will solve your DSP issue for current products. Organizing the older DSP can be done with the same bags and Evernote, but it will take some work. If that DSP is loose, it will be especially difficult. I share my Retired Products notebook and there is quite a bit of DSP listed there already. You will also find a number of old catalogs you can look through to find your DSP. You would have to make your own labels for the retired paper, but at least you should be able to match up the sets of paper and the catalogs will list the colors.

      You’ll have to decide if it’s worth your time to get it all organized. If I was looking at a huge stack of old DSP, most of it featuring colors that are retired, I might just donate it to a worthy cause and move on to current paper. If you’re not using it, it’s just taking up space and weighing you down. If you decide you want to try to organize it, order some of my bags and maybe my Paper Sampler. Then if you want to try Evernote, just ask in an email and I’ll send you the invitations.

      I’m sorry you found it confusing. I started off the video by saying “I’m not going to show you how to make a card, but rather some basic card bases and layered techniques.” You may also want to click the link under the video and print the pages with more detail on all the bases and layers.

      I do have videos for most, if not all, of those cards I showed in the video if you want to see more detail. I know it’s hard to scroll through all the posts. If you know the name of a stamp set or of a color I used, you should be able to search for that. I am also working on a page with a little image of each project and I’ll add links to the posts about them. But that might be a while before it’s finished. Check back in a week or two.

    Hi Bev,
    I’m sorry you have technical difficulties! They are the most frustrating to me! So, I wish you the best to get them resolved because not only will you be blessed, but so will I and all your friends and followers. And we wait – somewhat impatiently, LOL!
    I would love to get your invitations to Evernote! Do you consider this comment as email or do I need to send you a separate one? Did you come up with this program? It would not surprise me, since you have such marvelous organizational skills!
    Looking forward to July 1, by which date you will also have my email with the demonstrator order. In the meantime I wish you joy!

      Hi again, Ursula! I think I’ve got my technical issues resolved. I should have a video on Thursday. I’ve sent your invitation to my Evernote notebook. I did not come up with Evernote, but I did come up with using it for a searchable catalog for Stampin’ Up! products. You probably don’t need my help to sign up, but I’d be happy to talk you through it if you’d like. Just give me a call when you’re ready.

    Hello Bev,
    First I would like to thank you for this amazing video. It was so very helpful in understanding all the layering options. I am looking forward to having a look through your archives for more wonderful ideas. I currently have Evernote installed on my computer, but unfortunately because of my disabilities, I have not had the time to figure out how to use it for all of the stamping products I own, or for that matter for all of the recipes I have collected over the years, which is why I downloaded the program to begin with. I would love an invitation to view your Evernote file and hope it will finally inspire me to get working on my inventory. Blessings to you for all the wonderful help you are to all of us out here.

      Thank you! I’m glad my Bases and Layers video was helpful.

      And thank you for asking about my Evernote notebook of Stampin’ Up! products. 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 check out last year’s notebook here and either look through it online or you can download the program and the notebook.

      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, go to the Products from Bev tab. 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.

    Found your your tube video this today.
    thank your for your work. I did print it and the new updated version.
    I have just one question. Is there a way we can get a pdf of the Connie Stewart Flash cards that you mention in the oldest version of card bases and layers.
