Simply Shammy and Cyber Monday

Simply Shammy and Cyber Monday by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Angie Juda

I'm sharing with you today how I cut my Simply Shammy in half and how I store them in the Half Size Wood Mount Stamp Cases. 

The Simply Shammy measures 5 x 7 and I cut in half at 3-1/2. Both pieces cut fits perfectly in the Stamp Case. 

I've also created a PDF with cutting marks.

  1. Terry Molineux

    Omg!! I love this. I stored mine in the regular stamp case. This is way better!! Thanks for sharing. Inky Hugs,

  2. Jan

    What a wonderful idea with the shammy! I also have some issues with my hands in the cold weather. Will be much easier to use in a smaller size and thanks for sharing the storage idea and PDF?

  3. Laurie

    Great idea

  4. Kathi R

    Love this idea. I really like the smaller size shammy and bonus that they will fit into the small stamp case. BRILLIANT IDEA! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Kay

    I love the idea of cutting the shammy. I think I will like it smaller too

  6. Angela Stovall

    Awesome idea…love it…

  12. Mary Kay Harman

    Thanks for sharing such a great idea. Will need to try this.

  13. Mary K Wessling

    Great idea!! Thanks for all your hard work in making the print-out too :).

  14. Karen Tenney

    Great idea! A smaller one sounds easier to handle as I have arthritis and it’s hard to squeeze the big one, especially in the winter, like you said. Thanks for the idea and for giving one away!

  15. Crystal Muirhead

    I love this idea! I really appreciate the PDF you shared. They can be a real pain to make, can’t they?? I would suggest drilling a few small holes in the case so air can get in and your shammy doesn’t mildew. You can easily do that with a small drill bit and your Dremel tool.

  16. Mary K

    Great idea! I like the smaller size, too! Thanks for sharing.

  17. Joan Stickler

    Thank you for a great idea. I love it.

  37. Jo Ann Delano

  38. Debbie Eslinger

    I love this idea I am like you a 5 x 7 is okay just for rubbing stamps on it to clean, but to use with a stamparatus or other device like this it is way to big

  39. Michelle

    This is so nice thanks for sharing always could use on. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and good holiday weekend I worked moving craft room again almost done. But then need to straighten up and reorganize to fit in storage room. Hope the craftroom storage space will be organized and work will see it’s smaller spaces I see inthe storage. But all I can afford hope I move it out so I can down size again. Am getting older can’t move like before so under stand hand pain. Be Blessed

  40. Jan Farring

    Clever Idea
    Thanks very much for sharing!

    What does yours look like after you use it for awhile? I’m wondering if mine should be thrown out?

    • Angie

      it looks pretty dirty but … just wash it with Dawn Dishwashing liquid. It doesn’t get the stain off but it will clean it.

  135. darlene coin

    Hi Angie, What is the simply shammy used for? Cleaning stamps? What makes it different from using the Stampin scrub?

    • Angie

      Hi Darlene, Yes it cleans our stamps and I prefer it when I’m cleaning the Phototopolymer stamps. I sometimes use the Stampin’ Scrub and Mist when I clean the red rubber stamps (sometimes easier to grab the simply shammy verses the stampin scrub and the mist).

  136. Crystal

    Great idea. I like it.

  137. Patti

    What an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing.
    Thanks for an opportunity to win the shammy case!!!

  161. Sandy Kostreba

  166. Lesa

    Hi Angie,
    Is that shammy made of foam or rubber?
    Will it need to dry before storing it so it doesn’t get stinky or moldy/slimey?
    Great idea to cut it in half to get a two for one.

  167. Nancy Huhn

    I like the “mini shammy” and think it would be very useful. The insert for the case is just the icing on the cake!

  168. Deepa M.

    What a great idea Angie! Makes the shammy so much more manageable, and extends the life of it too. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are feeling better!

  170. Bee

    Hi Angie
    Your video is on point and extremely easy to follow.

    Your friend across the state line!
