Family Crest – Stamp collecting

I bought this book last weekend at a local antique flea market, I didnt excatly know what they were, but after looking into them on the internet I think they are called wafer seals, and were to seal envelopes and they also helped in reducing counterfit documents. If anyone has any info on these please leave a comment, I have not been able to find out much about these on the internet, My favourite one is the skull and crossbones one.

Requested video to show how I organise my rubber stamp collection.

    Love your videos! I’ve only recently been converted to vintage and scrapbooking ~ You Tube has been an amazing find which has taken over from videos. I can’t get out to classes so no longer feel as if I’m struggling along alone :-)

    Have you ever considered unmounting your wood stamps? I am doing this ATM to save on storage space.

    @kayearlkay Most of my stamps are online purchases — If you look at the names on the boxes and put them into google, you should find the websites of companies quite easily. Let me know if you need any further help. Hugs, Rach

    Wow, you’re super organized! Must admit … I may be a tad jealous ’cause I’m still looking for a way to organize all my stuff that works well for the way I craft and the limited space I have. I can’t believe some of those images … they stamp so clean and crisp at first glance you’d never know they were stamps! I guess that’s another huge difference between red rubber and clear stamps. TFS some amazing tips!
