5 days to an organized crafty stash: day 5, inks


We have reached the end! Or maybe the beginning for your and your organization! If you missed any posts from the past week, be sure and head to the MFT Blog to get linked up!

Today is about inks and refills. Its pretty hard to beat something that is pre-made. I have a couple of ink and re-inker storage units from the company, Organize More.

This is my view every day that I sit at my desks. My inks are directly in front of me. This unit holds my MFT Stamps Premium Dye Ink Pads and Refills. My favorite inks. My most-used inks.

The unit to the left holds all my MFT Stamps Pigment Ink Pads and MFT Stamps Hybrid Ink Pads.

I sort my ink pads just like my cardstock, in rainbow order. The way the inks slightly hang out the front, make it easy to see my colors. Frankly, I have their location memorized. :)

I do keep my Black Licorice Hybrid Ink pad and Versamark Watermark Ink pads at the top. My most used. Gotta keep that stuff within easy reach! 

A last couple of items to share with you, these baskets which I keep on the top of the left storage unit. These hold my Mini Ink Blending Tool Handles and Mini Ink Blending Foam Pads.

I change the pads for each different color of ink I use. This keeps them tidy and the plastic baskets wipe out easily when too much ink gets on the side. I picked up the baskets at Michael's last spring.

Look at this final prize! WHAT?!?! Amazing! Go to the MFT Blog and leave a comment on today's post to be entered to win!

thanks for stopping by!

Your ink storage is amazing. And I know what you mean about having them memorized. I do too! LOL
A tip for you: I stick a small piece of Velcro on the bottom of my large ink pads to hold my foam pads. Then every colour has its own pad and NO rooting for the right shade/colour. PLUS, it eliminates basket!
