Ink Cube Storage

I was reading a storage forum and just had to order this to store my ink cubes in.  This is a  large 5 drawer jewelry and cosmetic storage unit.  I found mine on Amazon, but they are available from other sources.  My drawer with the Altenew inks has room for 28 cubes in it and with room to remove them (I have some pushed back so you can see there is room).  It is about 10 1/2 inches wide, 7 inches wide and 6 inches high.  Always trying to find a better way to store my supplies so thought I would share this.

Looking Back

It is always fun to look back and see what you may have been doing in your crafting.  This card was one I posted April 2nd six years ago.  My first blog post was April 2010.  I am hoping to get back to more frequent posts in the near future.

Tags as Cards

Tags as Cards was a class I recently hosted at Fond Memories.  This is one of the tags we made.

Tim Holtz thinlet tag dies by Sizzix were used to make all of our tags.  The stencil is a Tim Holtz mini and the stamp is from the wildflower set.  The inks used were Peacock feathers and Vintage photo.  The ribbon was colored with the Peacock feathers.  Hope you enjoy.

Mixed Media Card

This is a card for the Everything Tim Class at Fond Memories.  Embossing paste is used to create the base for the quilted design.  The paper cuts are from a Sizzix die and Wildflowers were stamped with archival black.  The base of the card started by treating the paper with gesso and adding distress ink in tumbled glass and bundled sage.  The final card was distressed in ground espresso.  Hope you enjoy.
