Ink Pad Storage

I have been doing some re-organizing in the craft room and figured out how to store my ink pads (for now...). I bought some small drawers from Wal-Mart, and cut some CS to fit in the front of each drawer telling me what color is in each drawer. I have a color book that I made (you can see it to the left of the drawers, it is similar to the Stamp Inventory one that I made) so it is easy to go to the "pink" page (for example), find the shade that I want and then pull it out of the pink drawer. Now, this setup may not work so well when Papertrey Ink releases their new ink-pads.... but it has been so much easier than my previous setup! I also have my blocks, stamp cleaner, positioning tool, re-inkers etc in here for now.

Very nice! I like how you added the paper color on the front of the drawer! I have three of these drawer things that I'm not using if you want them. I just don't know what to do with them.

Kelly....I think this is a great system! I have my inks color-coded, too and I think it's awesome. I'm sure you'll love it once your mind gets used to it!

Fantastic idea Kelly. I also like organisation, so am always interested to see what others come up with. I'm sure you'll find it really useful :)

You really are getting me inspired. Something in my messy craft space has got to give. I think this might just save me from buying my 4th unopened Memento "Bamboo Leaves" ink! Grrrrr! When will I learn?
