Distress Ink Storage

Many of you have asked how I organize my crafting supplies, so I thought I would share today how I organize one of my most used/go to products, Distress Inks from Ranger. I'm a strong believer that if you don't see it, you won't use it. I also like to have everything easy to access. The easier and more convenient you make your crafting supplies, the more time you will have to craft and less time searching for your supplies.

Here is a look at my workspot. I'm right handed, so I hung on the side of my craft table 4 rows of metal tool holders that I found in a hardware store. There is just enough slots here to hold all 48 colors of Distress Ink blending tools.

I have 1 blending tool for each color of Distress Ink pads that I own, still working on my collection. I find it easier to keep the blending foam on the tool and just grab it when I need it, rather than peeling the foam on and off each time I need to change colors. Remember the easier it is to use, the more you will use it. I then used my label maker and put the name of each ink on the side of the blending tool. To also make it easy to see from the top, I put some ink on a white sticker and then punched it out with a circle punch and placed it on top of the handle.

For my Distress Ink pads, I store them flat in a vintage cassette tape rack that I found at a flea market. I also labeled my Distress Ink pads with the name on the side of them and rubbed a little ink on it, so I can see the color at a glance.  For the labels I downloaded the label templatefrom Ranger's website onto peel and stick Avery Labels.

 

Thank you for stopping by and checking out how I store my Distress inks. I hope I inspired you and gave you some helpful ideas. I will post other storage ideas later.
