With crafting come lots of supplies and one key element for staying on top of all of your supplies is staying organised.
For me being organised does not come naturally so I can use every bit of help that I can get. That is why one of my new favourite things is the colour chart from The Wholesaler that keeps me up to date with what I have in my stash and keeps me organised at the same time.
Here’s how I keep my colour charts updated and how I know what I have and what I can purchase to keep my collection of favourite ink pads up to date.
Keep all of your ‘like’ ink pads together in a single container. I keep my Dew Drop ink pads together in a container all neatly stacked.
On white cardstock add some colour by lightly rubbing the ink pad in a circular movement. Once you are happy with the colour leave the ink to dry.
Use a circular punch and punch the colours into dots, then adhere them to your printed colour chart using Tombow Mono Multi adhesive.
At a glance you can see what inks you have and what you may still need or want to purchase.
I realised I am short quite a few inks, and with excessive use some of mine are a bit dry too. Luckily these little guys are such a good price I can re-stock and fill in my missing ones without breaking the bank.
To store my colour charts, I have a set inside my cupboard doors for a quick reference guide, but also a set in a carry file so that when I am purchasing new stock I know what I have and what I still need.
