Feeling pleased with myself!

After longer than I care to contemplate, I have finally organised my distress ink pads! No more scrambling around in a cardboard box, looking at every pad until I found the right one. I bit the bullet and bought the storage tin for them made by Cropper Hopper. Next thing I know, a (VERY) cheap dymo label maker fell in my basket too! Result? Alphabetised inky paradise! :)

(Sorry about the blurry/grainy pics, my camera was playing up).

What a fab idea Dan, mine are just in a mess in a plastic storage box.
What is the outside of the tin like? June x

Your labels certainly beat my prined ones . . . with the ink that has run and the peeling bits . . .

Think a dymo is in order! these look great!

Wow, how organised are you! Certainly beats scrabbling about in a box.

Wish I could be so organised. The pad I am looking for is always at the bottom. When I saw Tim demo he had to search through his pads too and he said it reminded him of Vegas!

organised is my middle name NOT, my inks are sort of organised well all in one place...so thats organised for me... it's the stamps I have been promising to organise for years, by stamping them into a book to remind me what i have ...but well into 3 figures is a huge job.
one day!

Looks like you have room for another two, Dan!

Well done on the organisation - I'm currently trying to beat my clear stamps into submission, but they are fighting back with a vengeance!

Aw you've done just the same as me, only my labels are computer printed on white sticky paper, and then i cut out and edged round each label in it's respective colour. I wouldn't be without my case it's defo worth it in the long run x

I love this tin. I have mine stored in one, now I just need to label them, especially since it is a pain to take them out one at a time looking for the color you want.
