Tuesday Tip - Ink Refill Bottles

Stamping and paper crafting is what I do. It started as a hobby and is now my job and my passion. And yes, I have LOTS of supplies to keep me creating and sharing everyday including ink pads and refills in all Stampin' Up! colors. I find that being organized and having all my basic supplies within reach of my work space allows me to use my time more efficiently, thus getting more stamping and crafting in. It's worth it to do little things now that will  save me time and frustration later. Today's Tuesday Tip is one that helps me in all these ways. I think you will find this tip helpful as well.

Take a look at this quick Tuesday Tip via video demonstration.  This tip will make identifying ink refill bottles quick and easy so that you aren't wasting time searching for the one you need when you need it. 

Here's a look at some of my ink refill bottles with color labels from coordinating ink pads adhered.

Sentimental Rose Collage

I decided after running my first ever Quarter Marathon at age 54 that I would make a little something for myself as a reward and a reminder that I am Strong & Beautiful & Resilient. I used the Sentimental Rose stamp set and supplies from my April Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love this little gift to myself and hope you like it too! The Strong & Beautiful stamp set has been one of my favorites from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. So many great sentiments for strong women and girls!
