Oh, and the last day of orders going out on Wednesday means that I’ll have a new video and new Filofax & Planner inserts for you on that very special day. Are you excited? I’m SO excited! UPDATE: I wanted to make the inserts and video extra nice, so I’ll be releasing them on Friday.

Thanks again for all of your support – so far, we’ve raised $80 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention with the sale of the demo sets. Let’s keep that going! I’m walking in Timmy’s honor on September 14th, and you can learn more about donating to the walk and more about the AFSP here on my charity fundraising page: Timmy’s Plum Shirts. I’ll have a full post about the walk and everything it means to me in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you SO much. I love you all!

Distress Ink Blending Foam Storage – Update + Video Tutorial!

Hello friends! Today I’m here with a video (as promised!) showing something I get emails weekly about –  an update for that awesome Distress Blending Foam Storage chart that I released several years ago with the No-Stress Distress Inks course. Since that time, Tim Holtz has come out with 12 more colors. The were originally deemed seasonal and limited edition colors, but the colors were so beloved that they became a permanent part of the Distress Inks line. That’s a good thing, too, because the seasonal colors are some of my very favorites of all time. First, here’s a look at the finished product:

Here’s another look at the chart in all its colorful glory. It’s seriously so inspiring to see all of these colors right in front of my workspace. I highly recommend hanging this somewhere where you can see it!

Here’s an up-close look at the back. I used a stapler to secure small pieces of velcro to the front around the edges and used a craft pick + brads + brad setter to attach the velcro in the middle of the board. This extra security will keep your velcro (and blending foams!) on through many projects and crafty adventures.
