Fun Storage Idea!

I've spent the last few days sprucing up my scrap space....the drab basement walls just weren't doing it for me anymore. It's amazing how a little coat of paint can do wonders for such a little space.

Before the paint I had always kept my blending foams on the wall using sticky Velcro dots...well I didn't want to ruin the paint so I needed a new place to keep them.

I made this little book using the cover from an old children's book to store my blending foams. It's the perfect solution to get these off the wall.......and it will be easier to grab them when I'm off to a crop!!!
The Challenger this week at Simon Says Stamp & Show is to use your favorite Tim Holtz stamp. Really how could I choose just 1!! I really do love the different sayings spattered throughout Tim's collection and thought this one was perfect for the cover of my new blending foam storage!
On the inside I used the sticky Velcro dots to hold the blending foams in place. I might make labels for them too so I know which color they go with!! But first I need more dots!
I'll get some new photos of my space up soon......just waiting for the sun to shine into my drab little basement!
Have a great week!
