Die Cut Storage

May 26, 2010 at 9:19 pm 11 comments

So most people who know me know I am a bit obsessed with organizing….and by a bit I actually mean totally obsessed and by totally I mean I keep Rubbermaid in business. I just love things to be nice and orderly. I honestly enjoy spending hours sitting and sorting through  piles and piles of stuff just so I can put it all away nice and neat after. I know it’s sick right..but hey we all have our little obsessions…mine just happens to involve alot of plastic bins and ziploc bags. Not only do I love to organize but I really love to find new and clever and inexpensive ways to organize and I really really really love to share all my fab ideas with whom ever will listen. So with that in mind  I have decided to share my vast love and knowledge of all things scrap-organization with you all my faithful blog readers…after all I get asked about it all the time (well I only got asked 2 times and one question was from my hubby and he only wanted to know when I was going to stop re-organizing) but hey there was one person who really did want to know…so for her…and anyone else who cares…I made another video. WooHoo! I heart my Bloggie! Actually this video is going to be the 1st in a series of videos about how I store and organize all my scrap crap…in other words it’s a tribute to my OCD! I hope you enjoy! Here’s video #1 …How I Store My Die Cuts…prepare to be wowed and amazed!

Don’t forget if you have any questions leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to answer you!

***Just read a great tip from Christy (emeraldvalkyrie on ClubCK) and I had to share…if you have die cuts that match a paper collection you have, put your die cuts on the magnetic sheet and then instead of putting it in a binder, put the sheet in with your paper so it’s all together…great tip right…thanks Christy for sharing!

    Love it! I’m going to have to do that. I’ve been frustrated lately with the 12×12 sheets of die cuts. Great idea!!!

    Great idea! I know they warn about paper getting brittle or discolored in the magnetic storage. How long have you had some of those older pieces stored like this and have you noticed any of these problems starting to happen at all? Thanks for the idea and looking forward to seeing more!

      Hi Patty…I have been using this system for about 2 years and the pages still look brand new and I haven’t had any discoloration or sticking at all. My plan is if I start to see any issues is to just change out the pages for new ones.

    I love this idea, but I think “they” are producing acid-free magnetic pages now. I’m on the hunt to find out who makes them, then I will become a convert to your system. Thanks for the idea!

    Thanks for the video, Jen.
    I am “wowed and amazed!” I have used 8.5X11 page protectors to store my die cuts, but your system with the magnetic pages keeps everything in place. I might have to switch.

    You’ve inspired me, Jen! I have all my loose die cuts in a plastic box, but it’s a pain to pull them out to flip through them. Plus, my 12×12 sheets are stored elsewhere. Your idea makes it so everything can be all together. I know what project I’ll be working on this weekend!

    Hi Jenn. Just wanted to say I love your system. I didn’t even know they made those magnetic pages still.

    Thanks for sharing

    Jen, I loved this video! I am sitting in the parking lot of Friendly’s at 5:30 am watching (long story, LOL) and totally making a road trip tomorrow to ACM for magnetic sheets. Thanks for the great idea!

    It looks great. I have some stuff in magnetic albums from long ago and they are pretty stuck on there. Do your pages have lines of adhesive on them or is the whole page sticky? I’m afraid of the diecuts getting too stuck on there and if they are intricate cuts then they could get ruined. I have my diecuts sorted into categories (color, if they have words on them, tags, etc.) in CD cases. I do like this idea though.
