Storing my Replacement Blending Foams

Hi there Blog Walkers,

Today I am sharing on how I sort my blending foams. I used to store my foams inside a container but doing it this way I found myself picking up a new foam when I using the Distress Inks and some times I found that I have doubled up the colors.

I soon sort that problems and it does really works (for me anyways).

I purchased some index tabs from my local news agency hmm.. I think for around $4.00, then I also purchased a strip of Velcro from our local dollar store and I paid $2.99 for a 3 meters strip. I place a strip of Velcro onto the index tabs and wrote the color of the replacement foams. I have numbered the index of the card and also numbered my Distress Inkpad, why doing this I hear you ask???... well this will save me time looking for the appropriate replacement foam from the pile.

That's it.. easy and not that expensive to create. For those of you who has the same problem I had, I hope this tip will also work for you.

This is how I store my Distress Inkpads..I put them in a container with labels. If I put the pads underneath the inkpads it does not store properly. I hope this makes sense..LOL.

Have a great and safe day!!


  1. Aren't you a clever little cookie, all of your fantastic little storage options. Another good one :-)
    Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY lovely lady

  2. thank you...great idea! But...did you placed a strip of Velcro onto the foams too?
    Happy birthday from me too!!!

  3. Why don't you just put the Velcro on the back of the pad? Then you don't have all of those cards to look through.

  4. To Anonymous... Why don't you just put the Velcro on the back of the pad? Then you don't have all of those cards to look through... I have tried putting the pads at the back of my distress inkpads but the inkpads does not store properly.

  6. Hi there Sammy Girl.. thank you for your comment and for wishing me a happy birthday. You always the sweetest.

  7. Hi, I just wanted to say that it's a great idea and I've put a link on my blog. Hope you don't mind. Have a nice day


  8. Another smart idea Gracie - TFS. I hope you had a really happy Birthday (from one March baby to another).

  9. wow, what a great idea, you will have to share that one with Kaszazz as it is so good. I always end up with more than one of the colours on one I had 4 replacements, so this is so cool.
    Maybe I need you to sort me out with my craft room.
