Craftroom Organization 101: Dies

11:00


Hi crafters,
today I am looking at Die Storage as we are approaching the end of the organization series. I store my dies in two different ways, depending on if they coordinate with a stamp set or not. I sleep coordinating dies in the same pocket at the stamp (in the back) for easy access and so I remember that I actually have the coordinating dies.


The other dies that are "stand-alone" I sort into my Really Useful Box by category. I labelled my dividers and divided my dies into the following categories:

Backgrounds
Basic Shapes
Blueprints
Borders
City Things
Christmas 
Food and Drink
Frames
Misc
Nature and Animals
Nesting Dies
Sentiments




I store my dies in plastic CD pockets. 90% of my dies fit into these except borders and backgrounds in which I could either just let them hang out of the pocket or store them in stamp storage pockets. I find my dies this way, quickly and easily and I can easily browse through when I need inspiration. 


I label my dies by name and company so I know where they are from and where I bought them. Since I make my YouTube tutorials, I need this to be quick, accessible information. See you tomorrow for Mixed Media Storage!

  1. Just super organization tips especially for those of us with tiny spaces madeover from a bedroom. Lol About those magnetic sheets: I've bought the traditional sheets used for making decorative magnets; however, lately I've used the air vent magnetic covers. They come in packages of two or three and are often on sale. I can cut them the size I need and voila. :-) Again, thanks so much for continuing with these great videos. :-)

  2. Going to have to seriously consider changing over from my DVD cases to your system. Likes the idea of cases at the time but not all that crazy about it as I use it. Anyone want a good deal on some slightly uses cases? Thanks for sharing!
