organization: ink

Its that time of year again. Time to get organized. Out with the old. In with the new. (hoping that Santa was good to you and fulfilled all your crafty dreams) This week the MFT Stamps Design Team will be sharing their crafty spaces. Their organization. And lots of great tips for you! Everyone has such great and unique ideas, my room always gets a spruce up!

Today's topic; ink. As you can see, being a stamper, I have to keep my inks right in front of me. Right were I can grab them easily. In fact, you will notice during this week that I keep everything I use most, with reach. My work time is precious, so it has to be efficient. :D

These ink stands are from Stamp-n-Storage. I have two of them. Both are fantastic. I purchased the smaller one first. Had I known how much I was going to love it, I would have bought the larger, twice! This unit holds my pads and my reinkers. LOVE that!

I keep all my ink types together. Meaning my dye inks are all together in a rainbow order. And then my hybrid and pigments inks, same order, just separate rows. I typically go from darkest to lightest in each tone. In trying to figure out why I keep them separate, I cannot come up with a logical answer. Apparently my type-A runs deep. :D

creating paper tassels


Today's episode of MFTv is about creating these adorable paper tassels! Tassels are super trendy right now. They were all over at CHA! They make great embellishments for cards or mini albums. They also look great hanging from planner pages. What about using them to wrap presents or hanging from a gift bag? The possibilities are endless and when you see how easy these are to create with one die template, you will be hooked!

Head over to the MFT Stamps Blog or the MFT Stamps YouTube Channel for the video tutorial.
