Oct. 18, 2016 How I store my Ink pads

I had to share this info with you, with a link.  This rack holds a 100 ink pads, and I have mine mounted on the wall at my work area.  The price is a real deal for what you get, as it is so sturdy and mine is almost 10 yrs. old already.  I  recommend it highly and 2 of my stamping friends have also bought these same racks.  I have no trouble storing my GkD inks, my Distress inks from Tim Holtz, and Memento inks - They all fit wonderfully.

You won't regret this purchase.  If a few slots are a little too snug, you can sand the tops a smidgen, and since you can add the ink name on a little stick on label to the side edge , you can see their names at a glance.


Here is a picture of the rack from their web site, and it costs less than $25.00.
 100 Capacity Wooden Cassette Rack - Unfinished Wood
You will love this and I find it is more conveniently that stacking the inks in a drawer!  Been there and done that --but it was years and years ago!

Mon.Oct. 17, 2016 It was a GREAT GKD Weekend- woohoo !

This was a whirlwind weekend at Gina's store, with Gina, her husband Tom, Melanie and Theresa for lots of learning and visiting and meeting so many wonderful ladies and one man that was a student with us I had so much fun.  I am so happy that I am only an hour or so away, but many people came from all over the country! Some drove long hours and some flew here.

This first Gina weekend event was worth every penny.
 The Hampton Inn, where most spent the weekend, had provided us with such great service and terrific place to collapse each night.  They were wonderful to us!

We learned so much- great techniques and tons of goodies. This post contains the pics I took- both of some of the instructors, followed by the cards I made in the classes.  ENJOY!

Can you leave me a comment????
