Organized Distress

Today, I am celebrating my birthday (WOO! 22!), but I thought I'd share with all of you a quick fix that I am now utilizing in my craft room!

Between my mom and I, we have just about every color of the Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I use them in almost every single project that I do, so you can image what it's like to look at this:

and have to guess where a certain color might be hiding - then, digging through all of them only to realize that the color I wanted is actually on my mom's desk behind me....ugh.

So, I took a few minutes to remedy the problem :)

  10. That is soooo funny! I did almost the same thing. Only I used white paper strips and inked them in the color. Happy Belated!! =)

  11. I was in the same boat. I used address labels cut to size and then I also took a swipe with the color on the edge to remind me of the exact color. I wonder if you can do that over the top of your raised letters? Happy Birthday! KH
