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.
