In this video, the wonderful Laurie Willison shows a “mailing station” that she has created to make mailing handmade cards fast and easy. She keeps everything stored in an Interdesign Organizer. (This is the same one I use to organize upcoming projects.)

She also creates her own envelope seals using the Hero Arts kindness stamps, label paper, and a circle die. Clever, huh? In the organizer she also keeps my favorite postage stamps and personalized rubber stamps from Bossy Joscie.

  1. For my Christmas cards, I usually use a Bible verse on the back of the card. I used to use my own little “label”, but I ran out–it was a cat stamp with my initials. This is a great idea!

  2. I follow Laurie W. and I love her CAS style. This is such a great idea to help us keep snail mail going. I enjoy receiving snail mail so much. That alone should make me send more of it. I always write the return addresss on everything I send. I just feel like it’s the responsible thing to do. A stamp would be awesome. Thanks, Jennifer!

  3. I have a created with love by (your name) to stamp on the back of all of my homemade cards! I try to add special stamps for the envelope especially when sending them to the children. I make them different each time to keep them interested in snail mail!

  4. I don’t use a stamp instead I asked my sister to create a logo for me because she is an amazing artist so she made me a very cute ladybird that I fill with colour on my computer so that it matches the colour of the cards I create. I cut it out in an oval shape using my Silhouette machine and make stickers thanks to my beloved Xyron machine. .. that’s a lot of machines but it’s worth it 😉

  5. I do not have one but this is a great idea.As I live in the UK I need to hunt for if there is a place where I can have one made.

  6. I do not have a personalized stamp but would love the opportunity to win one. Thanks for sharing your amazing videos with is.

  7. I currently hand write my return address. But someday I get a personalized stamp for the back of the envelope. I really love the look!!

  8. I use return address label I receive in the mail from charities I have supported.
    Love your kindness challenge. Thanks for all your work on it.

  9. I don’t have a personalized address stamp, I sure wish I did. I send out SO many cards, but still hand write it all.

  10. I don’t have a personalized stamp, but I would love to start using one. I think it would encourage me to sent more cards…

  11. i have a personalized stamp for the back of my cards that i bought from paper angel years ago. i have one for my son too! i have a personalized stamp for my return address but hardly ever use it since i get so many freebie address labels in the mail!

  12. This is an awesome idea!~ I have to do it !! Yes, I do have a personalized stamp that I emboss on the back of my cards. I would love to have a return address one to use on envelopes! I really need to give my envelopes more attention. 😀

  13. Oh, Jennifer, I just love this idea for setting up a “station” with all we need to get cards out! I’ve already added the container in my Amazon cart! Thank you for sharing Laurie Willison’s idea. It’s fabulous! Hugs!

  14. I don’t have a personalized stamp but I will often just handwrite “Handmade with love” or “Handmade by B” or something like that at the back. I always handwrite the address. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Having a personalized stamp to use in place of writing out the return address would make things that are sent out look so much more neat and clean. I would love to have one on hand.

  16. I do use a personalized stamp on the back of my handmade cards, but I love the designs that this company has to offer. I may have to get another one…you can never have too many! LOL!

  17. I really like how she maintains everything so organized . I need a mail station. Also i would love to be able to use this kindness stamp for my card holding envelopes.

  18. I love the idea of having every thing right at hand not just for handmade kindness but for all our everyday things too. This is such a clever idea. Thanks for sharing.
