TGIF everyone!!! I am so ready for the weekend, I’m hoping to make a card for another challenge this weekend but first… I wanted to do a quick post about the way I organize my blending foam. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about organization this week and I wanted to throw one out there also. I love organizing my craft supplies, I mean how else are you supposed to know what supplies you’re missing and need to buy, right?
I recently bought my first blending tool and I went with the Ranger Mini Round Ink Blending Tool (I split this with my fellow crafty friend Angela). Because my Papertrey Ink ink collection is growing, I wanted to figure out a way on how to store my blending foams. I’ve seen a couple of people who like to velcro them under each ink pad but I don’t like how the PTI pads don’t sit directly on top of each other with foam in between. So I came up with this:
I created an excel spreadsheet (yes, I’m a nerd but I’m not going to lie, I love excel spreadsheets) with the names of all the PTI colors and made squares big enough to fit a piece of foam and made it into a PDF which you can download here: PTI Blending Foam Outline. I bought some Scotch velcro dots to place in each square to hold the foam in place.
I’ve mentioned before that pretty much all of my ink is from PTI and I’m still working on expanding my ink collection so this works for now.
I hope you guys have a good weekend, don’t forget to follow my new instagram account for The Lovely Pear. Thanks for stopping by!
