Ink Color Chart and Organization

During a recent card making session,  I finally broke down and took the time to "Tiffanize" my inks and chalks.   Tiffany Spaulding has a great organizational tutorial available a few times a year, The Scrap Rack Organizational Challenge.  I started this challenge in January and I am a "have a lot" so I am still in progress of this challenge.  It only took about 3 evenings to complete my inks and chalks, but now I have a chart with all my colors!  This makes life so much easier, I pull out my chart and match up the particular colors I am for the embossing powders!  I spend so much time playing around with embossing powders, it will make crafting more efficient to have that chart completed.  It is also very easy to add new inks as I acquire them.

Here is a picture of my ink chart.  I used the Stampin Up Hex set to sample my inks.  This is before I added my chalks.  I decided to stamp them with a different shape, so without even thinking I will know if it is an ink pad or a small chalk.  I also used a different stamp for rainbow ink pads.

Here are my inks in their cubby.  I keep my chalks which are mostly Colorbox cat's eyes and Quick Quote's powder puffs in more of a drawer I can "rummage" around in to find the colors I need quickly.

I am also about half way through with my stamps which is a huge undertaking.  Cataloging thousands of stamps, I just don't know how long that will take. 

I am sure I will purchase more tonight and tomorrow at the Stampaway Convention at the Sharonville Convention Center. I will be working for Judikins during the convention, if you are in the Cincinnati area for the convention come by the booth and say hello. I am sure I will have some new goodies to show off next week.  I also have a blog hop next weekend celebrating a fellow bloggers birthday!

I know I haven't posted as much this week, I AM crafting just making a lot of card swaps and wedding invitations.  I will show off these projects after they have been received by the recipients.  Thanks for reading my blog and have a blessed day!
