  1. Love seeing how you create the template and getting so many at a time. I use photo boxes in a container that works great for me to store my sentiments 💞

  2. As always love your video. QUESTION: At 15:35 seconds you use a tool to apply even pressure for the ink to transfer from the stamp to the paper. Do you mind sharing what that is? I appreciate it. Seems more even and faster than using a hand. Thank you.

  3. I’m a fan of Hero Arts products and designs. Thank you for sharing your tips on making and storing extra sentiments. I have a feeling I will using more of my stash.

  4. Great ideas. I always enjoy your organizational tips — I’ve tried to incorporate as many as I can in my craft room, but chaos seems to be my default setting! This catalog has some wonderful sentiments!

  5. I was just making some sentiments last night and was thinking about having them on hand just to slap on a remade card. Great Ideas and Great Video, as always.

  6. Loved this video! I have been into this idea over the past month trying different ways to store my prepared sentiments and so this could not have been more timely. I had not thought of using magnetic photo binders – what a great idea! Reviews on Amazon are suggesting that the pages lose their ‘stickiness’ quite quickly when used frequently. If that happens to me, I was thinking that I would mount a SISSIX sticky mat on each page. They are quite reasonable, come in a pkg of 5 and I like them as they are not nearly as sticky as Brutus Monroe. I think the size is 6” X 8” which is smaller than the binder page but should work OK. I look forward to your update on this project.

  7. Thank you so much for sharing these ideas! I’m really tired of creating a sentiment every time I make a card; having them all prepared will be a huge help!

  8. Thanks so much for this video, Jennifer! So many tips! I’ve been hesitant to create sentiments in advance because I couldn’t figure out a good way to store them but I love the photo album idea and can hardly wait to give it a try. I also appreciate all the tips for actually creating the sentiments. These ideas are going to save me time in the future, especially if I do this when I’m not feeling creative like you do.

  9. What a fabulous idea to mass produce and store sentiments. Especially when I’m strapped for time and don’t want to spend time gluing a stacked sentiment together. This is something I can do while watching a movie. I had to laugh that we are once again going to use those old photo albums that none of us memory keepers will use because they aren’t acid free. But they will be great used as you described! Thanks Jennifer.

  10. I store all of my strips of sentiments upright.
    Have to shuffle through them to find what
    I want. Will be putting your ideas to use.
    thanks for sharing.

  11. Jennifer, Thank you for your wonderful videos! So happy you will be teaching in this next Stamp Along event! Thank you for your kindness and always being there to share!

  12. About the album to hold the sentiments easily. I noted that it is less expensive (22 Feb) to buy another album than refill pages. Interesting to watch prices.
    Loved the ideas in this video.

  13. Hello, Love your organizational ideas. I had an idea you are welcome to share while I was putting my sentiment strips into the album.. Sometimes I think I like organizing art supplies as much as creating the art! Haha! I got all my sentiment strips in the new album with sticky pages, and had duplicates left over (I am talking I stamped way too many Thank You’s!!!!). I thought, why not use temporary tape on a piece of copy paper and slide into the baseball card sleeves I used before the album. Works perfectly, and the strips do not fall out of the pocket.

  14. Thank you, Jennifer!! You solved my sentiment storage problem! I think I already have one of these photo albums sitting around to use!! I never would have thought to use it for this reason!!

  15. Thanks for the great tips, Jennifer! I am always checking out your YouTube videos, and I have learned so much! I even take notes. I just started making cards in November 2022. You are an incredible and generous teacher. I appreciate that! 💜💜💜

  16. I preprepared a bunch of sentiments after one of your previous videos showing how you did it. It has been so helpful to have them on hand. Love your storage solution. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us.

  17. I loved this lesson, but was wondering how you know which sentiments are in which sets? I have so many stamp and die sets that I can’t keep straight what sentiments I have where. Thanks.
