Creative Chat–Ink Pad Storage!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You’ll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT Forum. This month, we were asked the following questions.

Show us how you store your ink pads.

Any tips on organization?

I have been stamping for well over 25 years, and in that time I have seen various different types of ink pads introduced. When I first began stamping you didn’t have much choice it was either dye, pigment or fabric inks …. now we have so many exciting inkpads out there … chalk inks, rainbow inks that don’t all blend together, permanent and archival ink pads, pearlscent inkpads, metalics to name some of them.

Of course as you will see in my video I had to have many of these and I love them all for many different reasons. Of course having so many ink pads I needed to find storage solutions that worked for me. It took many years to get what I really liked and thanks to some friends at a stamp club I have been going to for years I finally found the one right for me some years back.

Check out my video to see how I store all my ink pads

Frances, I too am impressed with the sheer quantity of different colors you have! I have a question though -- SU! says its ink pads should be stored upside down -- I forget if it's dye or pigment, but it seemed as if all your other stamp pads are stored right side up -- is that right? Any comments on that? Thanks!
