On a Message board I belong to someone asked with the new clear blocks in the bundle (soon to be available, Jan 5th) how does everyone store them. I decided to show you all how I store mine.
I got this tin and it was originally white. I decided I wanted it to be pretty and I love the one my sister in law Catherine made me for a Christmas present a few years back. She did mine with alcohol inks, but I wanted to make mine all Stampin' Up! so I gave it a go.
I used Bashful Blue and Almost Amethyst Re-inkers and a cotton ball and just daubed all over the tin, until it looked how I wanted it. I thought it needed a little something else, so I did the same thing with Platinum Shimmer Paint and the cotton balls. Then I added a bit of ribbon, Whisper White and Basic Gray 3/8" Taffeta and White Organza.
I also used Staz-on Black to stamp all the butterflies using Flight of the Butterfly. I found some Alphabet stamps and used them to stamp the word Blocks on as well.
The best part about it too, is how many blocks it can hold. I currently have 12 blocks in there and I have room for more. I have all sizes of blocks, small, medium and large, even an extra large on that measures 4 7/8" x 6" for background stamps! The whole tin measures 7 1/4" x 5 x 3 deep, you can get other sizes as well, but this one works best for me.
I hope this helps you all out.
Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
