Custom address stamps have many uses besides marking your outgoing mail. When you have a gorgeous address stamp, like the ones from Simply Stamps, you will surely want to use it for more than just your bills.

A friend of mine made me a beautiful journal. I keep all kinds of crafty notes in it. I have lists of my Cricut Cartridges, stamping ink colors, and border punches that I own. I also have a running wish list, because a girl can never have too many craft supplies.
I stamped the inside of the first page with my name and address using the Angie Square Monogram Address Stamp by Simply Stamps.
With more than 600 custom address stamps to choose from, there is surely a stamp that fits your personality.
After marking my journal, so it could be returned in case I lost it, I thought of a few more items that I would want returned if I misplaced them. One of them is whatever book I’m currently reading.
I know almost everyone has a Kindle, but I still read old fashioned printed books. It’s usually a paperback that I stick in my purse, so I can take it with me when I have appointments. I’m pretty good at keeping track of my belongings, but on occasion, I leave my book behind.
Since I use bookmarks, instead of dog earring my pages, I decided to make a personalized bookmark using my address stamp.
Supplies Needed for Personalized Bookmark
- 6″ x 2 1/4″ Scrapbook Paper
- 5 3/4″ x 2″ Scrapbook Paper
- Custom Address Stamp from Simply Stamps
- Small Scrap of solid cardstock
- 12″ piece of ribbon
- 6″ piece of twine or thin ribbon
- Scrapbook adhesive
- 1/4″ Round Hole Punch
- Stamp your address on the scrap of cardstock. The size and shape of your personalized stamp will determine what size cardstock you need. All of my papers are from Stampin’ Up, so everything coordinates, and I didn’t have to worry about matching colors.
- Using scrapbook adhesive, adhere the scrapbook papers together. Then add the cardstock with your address.
- Punch a hole in the top of your bookmark and thread the ribbon through it.
- Tie the thin ribbon or twine around the ribbon to gather it.
That’s all there is to it! It’s a super easy project. These would be great to make for your kids. How often are they misplacing their library books??? You could laminate it to make it more durable and keep the ink from bleeding.
Now I need to make some personalized tags to mark my scrapbooking totes. I can’t wait for a rainy day to work on them.
