Organization Idea – Stampin’ Blends Labels

Today's post is an organization idea for you! Have you struggled as I have to figure out which Stampin' Blends are which, without trying to read the side label? I have hemmed and hawed before I figured out a solution and I'm in love! Here's what my Stampin' Blends look like now:

This is an organizational idea to label and store for Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends.

Here's a closer look at the labels I made:

For example, Cherry Cobbler Light and Cherry Cobbler Dark are represented by CCL and CCD. Would you believe me if I told you I made them with my Brother P-Touch Labeler??? Let me show you how!

First, I use the Brother PTD400AD – it's AMAZING! I use it to label EVERYTHING! It has so many more options than my old Brother label machines! I really love setting the border option, as my labels maintain a consistent size that way (plus they look sharp too!).

Visit my FAVORITES page for my links to the labeler and the label tapes I buy!

The following series of photos are the settings I use on my Brother Label Maker…

After each label is printed, the labeler will ask “OK to Feed?”, to which I hit the ‘Esc' button. I will repeat this until I have printed all of my labels. Then instead of hitting the ‘Esc' button after the last label, I will select ‘OK'. The label tape will then feed until it can be cut. This is a great way to conserve your label tape!

Once you have all of your labels printed:

Just fussy-cut around the border, peel the backing off, and the labels should fit perfectly on your Stampin' Blends caps!

  1. Good Morning, Julie, this is great! I finally resurrected my Brother label maker I followed your directions and I am so happy.
    I’ll send you some pictures.
    Have a blessed day.

  2. Julie, thank you so much, I have struggled with this so much, just hope my P-Touch does this. You are so creative, thank you for continuing to share your awesomeness with us!

  3. Thank you so much, Julie! This is a super idea to solve an annoying issue. I appreciate your determination to solve this problem. I tend to make a mess and not put the blends back because I know I’ll be taking them all out again to see what color is what. Thanks for making stamping easier and less stressful.

  4. Hi Julie,
    Thank you for the P-Touch post and great instructions. I just order it and the tape on Amazon. Hope you get credit. I clicked from your Favorites page (so helpful, had not seen the link before).
    Love your video’s! They/YOU make everything easier by explaining so well.
    Thank You!

  5. Love this idea! I have a DYMO labeler that I’ve had for 6 years and it is still going strong and it doesn’t do this 🙁 . Can’t quite justify buying a new one but maybe someday I will get so frustrated with my punched circle labels that I will. In the mean time if you ever decide to print the strip and sell it, I’ll be your first customer! Hope your day is fantastic! I’m playing with my pre-order 🙂

  6. I must have an old Brother P-touch label maker. Model PT-200D
    and I love printing out labels for stamp sets, etc, but it seems that I cannot control the size of the label, and there is always so much waste. Don’t know which button to use to shorten the waste? I only have these buttons to work with:
    Font, Frame, button with basic or pictograph selection, and Deco mode. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • Hi Aurora! Try clicking the ‘Menu’ button, moving the cursor (‘>’ button) to [Margin], click ‘OK’, and then move the cursor to [Chain Print] and then click ok. I think that’s how you set up Chain Print on your model, but I’m not sure!

  7. Love this!! I tried using a smaller label wrapped around the lid but it didn’t stay. I don’t have the same Brother P-touch you do, but I made it work! Thanks.

  8. Just love this idea, I am definitely going to try it since I was just looking through my blends trying to figure out what is what. Thanks.

  9. Hi Julie, I received my label maker, same as yours. I followed your directions but mine don’t come out with the border around each one…it is around the whole thing. What am I doing wrong? Everything is set up just like your photos. Help!!! Thanks.
