We have been busy moving my mother, so there is nothing on my workdesk today.

My favorite part of snooping is seeing what everyone has for goodies, and how they store it, so I thought I would let you see most of my collection of Spellbinders, a few of my Marianne Dies, and a few Cheery Lynn dies, and how I store them. I have more, but I ran out of magnets, so they are still in notebooks.

All except the last photo are magnets mounted onto those cube things you get at Michaels. I just took whatever I had for magnets and attached them either with push pins, or double sided tape. These are temporary, since I move to our summer gift shop as soon as the weather warms up, and I will have to organize them all over again.

The bottom photo is a foam core board with magnets on it. I really like being able to see most of my dies, and being able to hold them over each other to see what works and what doesn't for mixing and matching. This would be a great system if I didn't have to keep moving everything. I would really like to completely cover a big surface like a door with magnets so I could display them all! In the second row of photos, you can see all of my flower dies organized together. In the first row, I have a side that is mostly the Spellbinders motifs and accents type sets.

I think where I have to move everything a few times a year, I may get more foam core and more vent magnets so they will be easier to move, then organize all my dies according to type, rather than having them on the sides of the cubes.

Anyway, if you have enough room, this is a really easy way to use your dies, and always be able to easily see what will fit with your projects!

If you don't know what WOYWW is, go on over and visit Julia at The Stamping Ground!

Strange, I was #105 this morning, but I just refreshed Julia's page, and I've jumped to #110 after putting my number as 105 on everyone's blogs this morning. I guess Katie will receive a lot of visits! I woke up this morning, and someone told me that I'm now #108, so my later visits and comments are sending everyone to Rhonda!

No wonder you make such lovely cards, with all those gorgeous dies to choose from.

JD said...

Wow! that's a lot of dies...Yes, I have to find a better system, mine are in a filing cabinet in plastic cases and I have to continually sort through them to find the one I one...a lot of wasted time...

Olga said...

this is fantastic!!!

Alison Scott said...

I want to come and play! What an amount of dies!
Mine are in a DVD storage box, with my cuttlebug plates and there is still plenty of room spare.
No WOYWW for me as I have been too busy to get much done this week.

Haha Kathi I know what you mean about the number jumping when you put your name on the list lol. Must be because as we are doing it so are other people and by the time we have clicked the button they have gotten in first with the number we thought we had! Wow your die collection is incredible and I love the idea of having them up on magnets where you can see them. I am a very visual person and I like to have my pretties where I can see them too :-). Thanks for showing and happy WOYWW.

You can certainly see all your dies there. I need some more magnetic sheets and even a new binder for my increasing collection. Thanks for visiting me today BJ#31

Liz Black said...

What a great way of storing your dies, and it's so helpful to be able to see everything when you're creating! Have you tried magnetic paint? You could paint one side of a door which would give you all the space you need. Thanks for your visit and Happy Belated Woyww Liz@51

Nikki said...

What a collection of dies you have there. I also found at my dollar store locker magnets you write on the other side but I used the magnets to make up a little book for my dies.
Oh and my bag of markers isn't copics but Prismacolours and touch twin they kind of like them but 1/2 the price :) hugs Nikki #9

I know, I was confused by your name and number but hey ho - what the heck! Got you in the end.
Love your die storage - I store mine on magnetic paper too but in small individual packages - must show the some time.
