Oh happy day!! It seems like a decade since I placed my order for Tim Holtz's new ink pad, alcohol ink, distress ink, embossing powder & paint dabber cases. They finally arrived and here it is after midnight and I'm joyfully re-organizing my studio. This is the trunk case for distress inks (but, this one is holding my gorgeous Nik Bantock inks).
Here's what I've discovered so far:
- I can fit three Rubbermaid drawers worth of ink pads into ONE ink pad case! It holds up to 60 ink pads. Good gravy! Now I need to buy more ink pads, right?
- The ink pad case can fit 4 Adirondack pads into one slot OR 3 Ancient Page OR 3 Memories OR 4 Sea Brights/Sea Shells.
- Stampin' Up! pads just don't fit in the ink pad case. They would probably fit in the Embossing Powder case. I'll have to give it a try!
- The ink pad cases fit in my Store-In-Style cubes (OK, the big one kinda hangs out an inch or two in front, but that's A-OK with me!). I can actually fit four huge ink pad cases into my cube. Basically, I can store FOUR TIMES as many ink pads into a cube now.
- The alcohol ink case also works for Stickles glue.
- If you want to "pimp" out your trunk case, you'll definitely want to see Tim's video (click here). I can't wait to decorate mine with alcohol inks, glass knobs, and oh so much more!
If you're interested in ordering the cases, I'm thinking of carrying them in the Flea Market. Drop me a note & let me know if you want some of the cases. I just love them!
