PrintHere we are at the end of the week! I trust you’ve got a weekend of organizing on your to-do list. If not, we’ve given you enough ideas to get you motivated to find some time to work on your creative spot!

Today we’ll focus on all of those glorious inks and refills that you hoard have and how you can get them organized.

If you love to “get inky” as the saying goes, you’ll love the ideas you’ll find here today, and I can GUARANTEE that you are going to super duper puffy heart the Grand Prize we are offering today. But I digress! We’ve got some inspiring and versatile ideas to tame your ink obsession.

Ink and Refill Storage and Organization Solutions

Let’s start simply with a concept we’ve been hitting home ALL week long. It’s important to label everything and your ink pads are no exception. Take a look at how Stephanie labels her ink pads for quick identification and a perfect match.


Amy has a great way to label her reinkers. She punches a small card stock circle and adheres it to the top. I love how she keeps the circle punch right there in the ink drawer for easy access.


Keeping it together is a smart way to increase productivity and lessen frustration. Jodi keeps her used daubers with the coordinating ink colors. And they are labeled, too. OF COURSE!


Kimberly keeps baskets handy filled with her mini blending tools and foam blending tools so that they are easy to grab in the midst of creative inspiration!


Barbara stores her inks upside down to keep the ink pad juicy. Her labels even read correctly in the upside down position!


Cindy’s inks create a beautiful rainbow as she orders her colors and ink types according to hue. This makes searching for just the right pink (or red, blue, or green!) an easy task.


Lucky Michele! Her husband created this custom ink shelf with space for pads and reinkers side-by-side. It’s 15″ long x 10″ tall, 3 ¾” deep with about 3″ between each shelf. As she claims, “He needs to make a bigger one!”


Julie’s collection is seriously *gasp* worthy! Her inks are stored in this Standard Ink Pad Holder from Stamp-n-Storage. Since the storage units comes in natural birch, she was able to customize them with a little paint to fit the dark espresso color of the rest of the furniture in her craft palace.


Sharon’s Distress Combo Holder comes from Stamp-n-Storage as well. And can I say Holy Crapunzel! There are slots for ink pads, reinkers, AND markers. Seriously. I die.


Melody purchased her handy storage solution from our friends at OrganizeMore, a family owned business in the hills of Tennessee. This 60 Ink Pad Organizer has room for her ink pads, reinkers, and sponges.


MFT Founder Kim is a huge fan of her Pro Ink/ReInk Organizer from OrganizeMore. There are 64 slots for ink with 64 corresponding cubbies for the reinkers. Isn’t it dreamy? Wouldn’t you like to have one, too? Keep. Reading.
