Organize Distress Oxides With Me!
I've recently purchased a lot of Distress Oxide Inks.
Close to My Heart does have a selection of them available on my shop:
The big box stores have them as well but if you are my VIP you get credit on your purchases!
I love them!
I've been learning a lot from YouTube and have I love the storage solution I have.
I found this old wooden cassette tape holder at Goodwill, painted it teal, and I use it for my ink pads.
As you can see I again ran out of room but I am a hoarder so I just cannot help it, I love ink!
I found a document online that has all the colors and names of each Distress Oxide. I printed this out on label paper and had my Cameo cut out stickers. I applied them upside down because I want to store my inks upside down. I have been told that you do not need to store them upside down but I just do.
You can get your own copy here: Organize Your Ranger Products (rangerink.com)
They have lists upon lists of their products and I love that.
I then saw a youtube where someone used velcro to apply the blending foams to the bottom of the ink pads and that way you always have one available to use. I found the velcro fastener dots at the dollar tree in the craft section and they were the perfect size. I just used the hard side because the ink blenders have the soft side of velcro already there.
I might just apply them to every ink pad so that I can blend and I am not searching for a blending foam.
Next, I was looking for a solution to use when I go to crops. I don't like having stuff falling all over the place in my crop bags so I checked out Totally Tiffany. She has buddy bags for pretty much any item in your craft room and I love them. They are plastic, sturdy, and see through. I found the Erma bag that holds these perfectly and bought a couple. I should have them soon. It has a velcro closure and a little handle for carrying. This should secure my inks so that I do not have to worry about them falling all over the place inside my cart.
I purchased mine on Amazon but check out the Totally Tiffany website for great organizational ideas and all her buddy bags!
