Organization: Die Storage 2014 and Giveaway

Amazing Paper Grace Die Storage
This is long overdue!  I promised quite some time ago that I would share how and where I store my dies. I have different types of dies, but right now the ones I use most are the thin metal dies.  I’ve tried a number of storage situations but knowing myself, I work best when things are within an arms reach and if they are organized and labelled.  I found a large Media Rack and installed (secured to the wall) on the left side of my crafting desk behind my computer.   I love this because it takes no desk space!WRBF-4289-2014
I’ve learned that if there’s something I have to get up to get for, if it’s something I have to dig through or if it is still in a package – I’m not likely to use it.  That’s my truth :-).  I’ve said before, I tend to be a die-centric paper crafter – in other words the die comes first then the stamps, paper and colors fall in after that.   My other ‘truth’ is that it’s easy to lose die pieces when I’m creating. For that reason, each die set has it’s own container and once done, all the pieces are put back in and that set is put away.  When I’m creating I have a shelf (see below) where I put the sets I’m currently using and because each set has magnet in the case – if something’s missing – I can tell right away (yes, this happens all the time).  Lol, you can see how worn my labels are – this is a system that has grown with me over the years and the dies get a lot of use :-)

Random Notes:

I store large die sets in Clear DVD Cases and small sets in Clear CD Cases with magnetic sheets on one or both sides..  Extra large dies are stored in a binder (see my thoughts on that below).  I have several groupings – these make sense to my workflow and might not make work with your workflow but it helps me locate what I need:  My groups are Labels, Shapes, Card Creator, Accents and Motifs, Flowers, Borders, Expandables, D’Lites, In’Spires, Cut-Tuck-Fold and several other smaller subsets.  The colors on my labels have to do with the year the die was released because I try to use new dies along with old dies and it helps me locate them quickly.

The media rack was purchased at Best Buy here and while it is no longer available in store, it is available online.  These racks can be found in many stores and other locations online.  If I can open up enough wall space in my craft room, I’m looking to add a similar rack to include my stamps :-)

Look around, there are tons of great ways to store dies, it just happens that this is the best way for me.  I found that binders were too heavy for me to lift (I still store my Grand Dies in binders for the few occasions that I use them).  I also found that if my thin dies were not contained, that they were lost too easily.  Lastly, I found I could not keep them in original package because when it comes down to getting them out, they were not getting used.


I’ve been a longtime customer of TapeOnline which is where I get all my DVD and CD cases.  They have graciously offered a package for giveaway!

Thanks for letting me share my storage, many of you have asked.  Be sure to visit every day until Tuesday to increase your chances of winning.  Have a wonderful weekend friends!


Question Parking Lot:

If you have any questions about this die storage, feel free to leave your question in your comments and I’ll continue to edit this post to include the answers.

1.    Debra Burgess, comment #7, asked a question about which case this was.  My link above (Clear DVD Case) will take you directly to the product I order.  If you are searching the TapeOnline Site – use this information:  TOL Part #: Super Jewel Box King Tray Manufacturer’s Part #: 32.C Model: King Size One / Two Jewel Box / Rubber Stamp / Die Case Product ID: 2636

2.    Pam Roth, comment #77 asked where I get the heavy duty cases.  All the links are above – simply click on Clear DVD Case or Clear CD Case.   Also, I wanted to make sure you know they are not heavy duty.  They are just like every day acrylic cases that you use for movie and computer CD/DVD’s because that’s what they are.  Mine have stayed in good shape because of the way they are stored here.  Every now and again I have to replace the small CD cases which have more fragile tabs but I have yet to have to replace a DVD case.  Mine have always arrived from Fedex intact, but if the mailman had a bad day and thew the box down, they may break.

3.  Dottie Davis, comment #79 asked how to store extra die cuts.  Glad you asked Dottie . . . when I get a new die, I cut it right away.  I do that so that I can see how it cuts and want to make sure it cuts perfectly.  For the first six months, I keep those extra die cuts in the case.  That way when I pull it down I have a sample right there.  After six months I have no doubt used the die several times and those extra cuts go in my die cut drawer.  I can’t tell you how often something from that drawer goes onto a new card – it was just in the right place at the right time!!  Never throw those away, they come in handy in for card planning!!

4.  Barb Parker, comment #86 asked how I reach stuff at the top.  I’m blessed to be almost 6 feet tall :-)  But I do have a step stool in my craft room.  It’s a fairly small room and to make the room work, I’ve gone vertical!

5.  Sarah, comment #142 asked if the full sheet or half sheet magnet was needed for a DVD case.  Depends on what your full sheet is Sarah.  If your full sheet is the one purchased at tapeonline, it is sized 4.75″ x 7″ which fits the full inside of one half of a DVD case.  You could cut it in half if you only wanted half of one side of the dvd case filled.  I use full 4.75″ x 7″ sheets.

6.  Jessica, comment #243 asked if I know how many dies I have.  LOL no, I don’t count them :-)  I’ve never been in a race to have more but have known for a long time that die cutting is my thing, the thing I enjoy.  What you see here are primarily Spellbinders dies but I have a hefty collection of Accucut, Sizzix (many original) and Memory Box dies along with Dayco, ZipeMate, Original Spellbinders and Quikutz.  These of course aren’t shown because they are larger and I have a different type of storage.  At any rate, back to the original question…the number varies because I trade, buy and switch depending on my style.  Keep in mind, I’ve been a die cutter since before the first Sizzix was released in 2001.  I used to go to our County School Board building, paper and kids in tow, to use Ellison die cut machines and some of the several hundred Ellison dies they had for teachers use.  Although I wasn’t a teacher, the kids and I had craft day all the time and I used my Dayco dies for cutting quilts.  I got my first professional die cut machine – Accucut GrandeMark in 2003 and got my first digital die cut machine – The Craftrobo Pro in 2005.  That said, almost 15 years is a long time to collect :-)

6.  Jean C, comment #244 and Mary Kimes, comment #263 asked about the baskets that hang over my media shelving holding dies.  They were purchased at IKEA.

7.  Beth Ellis, comment #268 asked what program I used to make my spine labels.  I used Excel and dropped the names into a regular spreadsheet grid and colored the columns.  I did this because the ACE Sheets are a recent addition at Tapeonline.  I used a whole page sticker sheet but will be very honest, my labels don’t stick well and I have to continually reinforce them with a dot of glue.

8.  Margie Luttrell, comment #322 asked how do I remember which set I want when creating.  For each type of die I keep a current catalog – either on my computer or printed (I prefer printed) and I flip through the catalog to look at shapes instead of hunting through the dies themselves.  Also I go to my extra die cuts drawer when I’m not quite sure what I want….

9.  Linda R, comment #374 asked about the catalog I use . . . great question Linda!  So the answer is why reinvent the wheel?  I simply download the latest Spellbinders Catalog.  It says in a drawer to the left of the desk you see in the picture.  Inside that catalog I mark what I have, what’s retired and what I’d like to get :-)  I have the same system with my Accucut and Sizzix dies – I keep both current and past catalogs in my handy dandy catalog drawer.

10. Ann Robbins, comment #377 asked if I buy my dies.  There’s really no set simple answer to this . . . in fact, this so made me smile.  I liken it to the Christmas that I thought I would work in a yarn shop to make money for Christmas.  I already hear your laughter!!  I made not a cent of extra money for Christmas but there’s sure a lot of yarn at my house and  in the end everyone was happy.

I think this rack will definitely work for me for my dies and stamps! Thanks for sharing this with us and for the giveaway!!ReplyCancel

  • Deborah BurgessMay 16, 2014 - 3:11 pm

    Becca, which cases are these. I went to the tape online to look and they all show with a disc holder on one side. Is there a certain item number you use to order them…LOVE this idea..i too if I don’t have them in front of me then I don’t use them. Awesome storage!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • BeverleyMay 16, 2014 - 3:11 pm

    I love your die storage system, Becca. I wish I had the room to use it. I use notebook folders with magnetic sheets and you are so right. Those folder are very heavy and hard to lug around. But it works for the storage space I have, so I stick with it.ReplyCancel

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway! I am from Canada but that’s ok. I’m very inspired by your clean workspace and I am always losing stamps – especially the small clear acrylic ones or dies. I usually find them once I clean up but I’m frustrated by my lack of organization.ReplyCancel

  • ShawnaMay 16, 2014 - 3:28 pm

    Wow! As generous as ever Becca! I love your system, I only wish I had the WALL space to do this with. I have BIG windows on three sides and the forth side has a smaller window that swings out to open. BUT — the cases could be used in a different setu-up, of course! Thanks for the chance to win!!!ReplyCancel

    I’ve used CD cases for a while but LOVE the larger DVD cases and the magnetic sheets. It would be wonderful if chose my number on the 20th as that is my birthday! ;-) Thanks, Becca for the opportunity to be in the mix.ReplyCancel

  • Melvena ShawMay 16, 2014 - 3:32 pm

    I love the media case. Wish I had seen it before I signed a contract for renovation to my craftroom. However, I’m totally blessed, as I’ll have countertops and still a great desk for crafting. I love the DVD case and magnets. Followed your advice a few years back and bought 100 magnets from the company you recommended, but have lost the internet site. Thanks for sharing your room – it’s great! Like the idea of everything being CLOSE at hand!ReplyCancel

  • JeaneenMay 16, 2014 - 3:32 pm

    Looks like a great system! Wishing I had walls high enough for the media storage unit – I stamp in the ‘bonus room’ over the garage and the slope to the ceiling begins at just over 4 feet…ReplyCancel

  • Betsy BrownMay 16, 2014 - 3:36 pm

    Oh my goodness, your room looks like paper crafting heaven to me!!! I can only imagine how many die sets you must have! I’ve been storing my dies in their packaging on a Clip-It-Up, but that’s really not a good system for me – I spend more time spinning that thing around looking for a specific die than I do actually using the die once I find it! LOL! Would love to give the CD cases a try! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!ReplyCancel

  • MyraMay 16, 2014 - 3:40 pm

    Thank you for your inspiration. I love your work. I went to this system awhile back and it is probably the best way to store dies. Thanks for the chance to win.ReplyCancel

  • ConnieMay 16, 2014 - 3:41 pm

    This is awesome! I’ve been using a makeshift version of the CD case/magnetic sheet by recycling old CD cases, and cutting magnetic sheets to fit them. Not as neat as your system but it works for the dozen or so dies I’ve been able to accumulate. Appreciate your directions on this.ReplyCancel

  • Donna DMay 16, 2014 - 3:41 pm

    Wow! What a fabulous workspace, so neat and tidy! I love the idea of storing dies in cd cases and have some of mine there already. I didn’t know what to store the larger dies in, until now. I will have to order some of these cases if I am not the lucky recipient of your giveaway. Thanks for sharing your creative space, it is just divine!ReplyCancel

  • Betty BMay 16, 2014 - 3:53 pm

    I’ve had a similar storage idea for many of my clear stamps…but have yet to find a satisfactory one for my dies as they need to be portable for classes etc. not just in my studio.

    To have some of these cases would be wonderful. At present I use zip lock bags in a binder and a plastic bin for storage. I live on a pension so money is very very tight and I try to use my dies to the max. Your blog is a wonderful place of inspiriation. I live internationaly but would pay for the frieght for the cases if I won.ReplyCancel

I have some of TAPE ONLINE cases and magnets. I need some more cases because seeing you and other designers using the dies to make some beautiful cards I HAVE to purchase more dies so I can scraplift those cards. ;)

    I would love to see your craft room. I bet you have some really neat organizing tips. You have to with all that product. My daughter thinks I have too much supplies, I need to show her your room.ReplyCancel

    I wish I had that much wall space…where did you find heavy duty CD cases?I bought some HP ones and they cracked and the hinges broke easily. I finally put mine in SU DVD cases.ReplyCancel

  • Yoshiko GlennMay 16, 2014 - 4:24 pm

    I have been using this method since you first blogged that that is how you store your dies. I had originally had them on magnetic sheets in protective sheets in a binder, but you’re right, they get way too heavy. Anyway, currently, I have more dies than cases, so this would be a great prize to finish organizing. Again, thanks for all of your creations/ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisMay 16, 2014 - 4:25 pm

    Thanks for sharing your organization for dies method. After seeing this on your blog a few years back I switched to organizing my dies the same way. I have heard of other methods, but to me, this works the best. The only thing I wished I would have done is put one die set in a case instead of two. Hindsight, so half of mine have two sets and the other half one set. I tried the spray adhesive on the first half, trying to save money, but they are coming off. Where I used the self adhesive magnets, have stayed put. The little thin dies sent from Sizzix, I leave in the plastic pouch lined on their sides in a decorative shoe box. I can pull these out easily. One problem I am befuddled with is how to organize my extra die cuts. Seems when I do a project there are always some that are experimental but nice that I don’t want to throw away. Got any ideas Becca? Like the others I too would love to see how you organize the rest of your craft room…it may help me a bunch! Thanks for the opportunity for win these CD & DVD cases. They would be awesome to win and finish what I started.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy JoMay 16, 2014 - 4:26 pm

    Thank you, Becca, for showing your die storage. You could not have posted for me at a better time: my craft room is so small and I have numerous dies. I am finally moving my craft room to a larger room and I am trying to figure out how to store my dies. I wrote Spellbinders asking if I could buy empties of their new packages (which I love!) but they were unable to do so. Since their response I have been searching the web looking for the best solution. This may work!

    Thanks, Becca! And thanks for the chance! Have a good weekend. :)ReplyCancel

  • PattyMay 16, 2014 - 4:42 pm

    OMG Becca…your storage system is wonderful!! I too have struggled with storage of my dies as I’m sure thousands have!! I currently have my dies stored in ArtBin’s that come with about 4 metal die “sheets” and then you can purchase additional die sheets from them. They do accommodate quite a number of die sheets, and I used a Label Maker to put labels all over the front of the case to show me what dies are contained within. While this is an okay way to store my dies, the bad thing is….when you open the case to flip through the different die sets, some of the dies slide off the die sheet, and they get quite heavy when you are searching to the last set of dies in the case!!! I would LOVE to win this giveaway and store them neatly but separately in their own case. I already have a wall sized metal shelving unit that has adjustable shelves that I could store them in! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that picks me!! Thanks so much for the chance!ReplyCancel

    Certainly agree with your thoughts about using supplies and putting them right back in place. I follow this “rule” with my cling stamps as I am terrified of losing them in all the crafting rubble. :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    Love how you store all your dies. I store the smaller ones in CD cases and my larger ones in the stamp cases I get from Stamping Up and put magnetic sheets in them, as I do in the CD cases. Sure would love to win the cases but I am not in the US. I am in Ontario, Canada
    Keep making all your lovely cards, you inspire me to mix up my dies and try new ways of using them.if I don’t have the dies you have used I try dies that I do have that may do the same thing.ReplyCancel

    Wonderful giveaway from Tapeonline! I’ve been ordering from them since I saw one of your posts last fall and I love this system. And their customer service is of the highest standard. I don’t use my dies as often as you do (of course!) so I usually cut the front of the Spellbinder card to fit the front of the DVD case and tape it to the front of the case. This way the spine is labeled and the picture of the die is on the front. It helps remind me what it looks like cut and shows me all the different cuts it can make. Thanks Becca for thinking of us!ReplyCancel

    I think it is fate that your blog post showed up on my Bloglovin’ today!! I have been trying to decide on a way to store my dies and after tons of research have decided on this very method! Now it is only a matter of getting the money to get the goodies needed to get started! Winning this would certainly give me a huge headstart on getting started!! Would love to see my name as the winner! Thank you for the chance!ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca, what a marvelous set up you have!! I don’t know if I’m more green with envy over your die collection or your storage solutions, lol! I found the same problem with binders that you did…too heavy! For now my dies are in envelopes, which isn’t working too well, so these cases look like the perfect solution! Thank you for a chance to win! Now if I could only get my cards to look as beautiful as yours, lol!!ReplyCancel

    I store my dies in their original plastic packages, slit on three sides to open like a book. I have one large box of dies that is a chore to get through. Sometimes two sets will stick together because of their shape. Plus I have to lift them out to see what’s inside. It would be fantastic to put them in, labeled CD cases for easier access! Oh, how I hope I win this package! Thank you Becca!ReplyCancel

  • AnnMay 16, 2014 - 10:53 pm

    I skipped reading all the other comments so I could say “you could be my twin” (organization queen) ! I love it!!! Like you, if I have to look for it, it interrupts my creative thought process. I will not use it if it’s an inconvenience to get to it. My crafting friend says I’m obsessed with being organized and I’m sending her your email, so she can see your craft room! I think it’s beyond wonderful!

    I currently have my dies stored in binders (got the idea from a crafter I met at a crop) and you’re right; they are heavy after you get so many of them. Going to try something else because I don’t have room enough for a media center because I have too much paper.

    Also, I noticed what looks like 12×12 cases in your craft room. Are those storage containers for paper? All that said…your space is neat and very well organized and that probably contributes to the beautiful work you produce.ReplyCancel

    Becca, thanks for sharing your die storage system, AND offering the chance to win cases & magnet sheets! I started storing mine in CD boxes with individual “hanging files” to slide the die set in. I quickly learned that system worked only for small dies. I then switched to large 3 ring binders… That worked really well for Grand Caliber dies — but the binders ended up being very heavy. I am vertically challenged (5′ 2″), so pulling those heavy 3 ring binders off the shelf, I risk a concussion each time I look for a die! I need a new storage system! Thanks for your inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • Michele WMay 16, 2014 - 11:02 pm

  • GerryMay 17, 2014 - 12:45 am

    I currently store my dies in a 12×12 album. I use 6 up and 4 up storage folders for the most part with a magnetic sheet inside. I can see that as I acquire more dies, this is not going to be feasible. I’m actually considering multiple 3-ring binders (again 12×12), so I can organize the dies into groups. I have been fortunate to be allowed a corner in one of the “common rooms” in the retirement facility my husband and I moved into recently, so my storage space is extremely limited.ReplyCancel

    I bought two sets of the DVD’s last year when you focused on them. They have worked well for my steel die storage.

Thank you, JulieReplyCancel

  • Clare WMay 17, 2014 - 12:59 am

    I store my dies on mag sheets in A5 boxes grouped into types – larger ones that dont fit are in an A4 box and grand dies are in magnetic folders. The majority are in A5 boxes and I find they dont take up much storage space that way and I only have a small box to flick thro when I want to find something. Think I need to review storage in my craft room – I have a spare wall I was thinking of putting shelving on but perhaps a media centre would be better – I will have to ponder that one!ReplyCancel

  • RoseMay 17, 2014 - 4:09 am

    Hi Becca,
    GREAT storage, but unfortunately I haven’t got the wall space.
    I store my dies on magnetic sheets which are stuck to original packaging showing a picture of the dies. The wallets re 5×9 in. and contain 12 pockets. I number each folder and label the dies with the folder no. they’re stored in. Any dies too big for the folders are stored on a “clip-it-up” carousel floor stand (by SimplyRenee).
    I also transfer the visual image of a die/set as I order and store it by adding it to a computer folder called “visual dies”. Once received and stored, I store the location ref. in the catalogue.
    In this way I can browse through my catalogue to see which dies I want to use.
    I also catalogue all my stamps/embossing folders and masks which are mostly stored on my floor stand in their packaging. Again, the packaging has a label containing the location, as does the image in the “catalogue”.
    My catalogues are computer folders named “visual stamps, visual embossing folders etc”.
    I find this system serves me well.
    Hope it has helped other crafty folk………
    Hugs, RoseReplyCancel

    I use a combination of these CD cases and a system I created that consists of 6×12 chipboard covered on one side with magnetic sheet. I stand these in a container right behind my die cutting machine. This allows me to have some of my favorite dies very close at hand. I also keep some of the more intricate ones here and the simpler shapes in the CDs. This way I can quickly thumb through them and search for what will work on the project. I would like to try the DVD cases someday and work those in to my system. Love your work, thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

No don’t it boggles the mind just to see them up there. You see, I have 3 sets of spellbinders, and 2 bigz that I never use. I have more punches, but not many more.

    Hi Becca,

    Following your post/referral I started using tape online DVD cases for both dies and stamps! Wooooowzwer! It’s a great stamp storage system. I also store embossing folders with a sample sheet insert and a tab label. Several fit in a photo box. This helps to “play with layouts” when I want to use dies, embossed texture, and stamps. Collecting and organizing is half the fun, right?! :)

Other dies are kind of here & there! Having just bought our 1st house, the rooms are to small, so I went & purchase a 10′ x 20′ storage building for my craft room. What a challenge it is as I have less furniture and went from a square room to a rectangle. These cases would be perfect for storing both dies and stamps. I will be removing the majority of my stamps from the wood mounts and there are a lot of them. Thanks for the chance to win them. I am going to have to buy some even if I do win them.

I use these cases without the magnetic sheet for all of my clear stamps. I use a somewhat different system for filing, but you can easily tailor it to what works for you. Can’t say enough good things about storing die cuts and clear stamps in these containers. Thank you, Bekka, for a great idea that I have easily been able to successfully implement.ReplyCancel

    I too started using the DVD cases after seeing your post over a year ago. I have FINALLY gotten around to labeling my cases. I procrastinated because I couldn’t quite decide on how to organize them! Finally I started putting my ideas on paper and once I had “played” around with the categories for awhile I ordered the ACE label sheets from Tape on Line. I do have one question though. The program for typing into the labels is a Word program not an Excel spread sheet and I was stumped as to how to color code the labels. Then I had a “light bulb” moment” and decided to simply draw lines with a pencil to create the little boxes and then used my Copic markers to color code things! Seems to be working for me, but I am sure I will be tweaking it as I go along. Out of curiosity, what program do you use to create your labels? Also, I love the media storage shelves and plan to look into purchasing one – or maybe two- as my die collection continues to grow! Blessings to you on this lovely May morning!ReplyCancel

    Thanks again for the chance to win the CD/DVD cases and magnetic inserts. They are awesome and I can’t wait to get even more organized. Still need to figure out how to store stamps both clear and wooden where I can see them to use them more. Thanks Becca for being so game as to make this chance available to one of us!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Wow !! Wow !! Wow !! I’m loving your organisation, your idea is brilliant !! I keep my dies in their packages in plastic boxes that have hanging files inside, and I stack the boxes on top of each other, but they get so heavy to keep lifting down, the one I want is always the bottom one haha !!
    You are so good to us ‘international’ guests, thank you.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

  • Diane CMay 17, 2014 - 3:39 pm

    Wow!! That is amazing and so neat. I’ve been trying to make my small collection of dies more accessible. It’s so much easier to pull them off the magnetic sheet instead of trying to get it out of the original packaging. Thanks for a chance to win. If I’m lucky, I could buy some more dies to fill them up!ReplyCancel

  • Joanne O'BrienMay 17, 2014 - 3:40 pm

    Becca, I love your die storage system and think it would work for me. Right now all my dies are in two plastic sterlite containers, some in their original packages and some in cd cases. What a mess! Thanks for the opportunity to win and get organized. I need something to get me going and cut my clutter..ReplyCancel

  • Jean BullockMay 17, 2014 - 4:14 pm

    What a great way to store the dies. Right now mine are in a binder. Worked OK when I had just a few but now it takes two hands to lift the binder. Your system would certainly be a blessing to win. Thanks for the chance.ReplyCancel

  • Robin SachsMay 17, 2014 - 4:32 pm

    I love the way you store your dies. I would love to win your storage system. It will be a great way to start building my collection of holders and magnetic sheets to store my dies. I have yet to find an acceptable way to store my dies. Your system will be perfect for me.ReplyCancel

  • caroleMay 17, 2014 - 4:46 pm

    I started using the clear case storage boxes after the first time you showed them. I love it, however, I have so many dies now that I have to decide how to expand my shelving to hold more of them. I have been listing them in a notebook, but then I have to locate the actual die! With more shelves I could follow your idea of dividing the dies the same way I have them listed in the notebook.ReplyCancel

    My goodness you can tell you have been collecting for a long time but your organizational method makes finding just the right die easy. I just re-organized my stamp room and it has made items easier to find. I like you don’t use it if I have to spend 1/2 hour looking for it. I may have to invest in one of your wall units for my stamps that I store in CD and DVD cases TFSReplyCancel

  • Mary H.May 17, 2014 - 7:34 pm

    WOW! That is some awesome & well thought out storage system. I have started keeping my dies in the Magnet Art bins, which is working so far, but I need to have them on shelves for easier access. Stamps are jumbled so spend a lot of time hunting for something or forget that I have it. How do you easily reach those baskets up at the top?

I’ll look up the info and send it to you if you’d like. I found it much easier than Excel and since the template is already there, I don’t do anything but type!ReplyCancel

I’ve converted all my rubber stamps to cling mount with EZ mount sheets and have them stored in CD cases and never in a million years did I think to store my dies in CD cases and didn’t even know there were clear DVD cases available until now.

  • ANN ROBBINSMay 19, 2014 - 7:00 am

    I have well over 100 sets of dies and since the Art Bin box for dies with magnetic sheets came out I have bought 4 and most are filled. I use one for shapes, one for flowers and butterflies, one for borders and one for CHristmas. When I buy new dies, I cut off the label and staple it to the back of the magnetic sheet. That way if I don’t \put the die back in as soon as I use it, I still know which mat it goes on. On the outside of the box, I have a typed list of everything that is in the box by the S number and name of die. It is working quite well for me.
    Becca, I always look forward to your new blog and wish you did one everyday!!
    My question is this: Does Spellbinder supply you with all the latest releases or do you have to buy them all. Thought maybe this one of the benefits of being a “Spellbinder designers.”

  • SaBrinaMay 19, 2014 - 7:01 am

    I love your storage system. This makes it a lot easier to know what you have and you won’t buy doubles, as well as making it easier to pull stamps and dies when your going to a crop. I have started but I have a ways to go. Thank you for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • Janet CastleMay 19, 2014 - 10:42 am

    Becca, your additional comments are answering a lot of my questions…thank you so much. I have an extensive collection of dies – my thing too – and am searching for a better way to store them. I have an Excel spread sheet on my phone, i-Pad, and computer so I can tell when shopping what I have. However, it does not allow me to SEE what I have without going thru my two zippered 3″ binders sorted with an A-Z dividers and stored in photo inserts with a magnet piece…I do file by shape (rectangle under R, circles under C, and also by item – flower under F). These binders are VERY heavy now and totally full – and this is only my Spellbinder dies! I have LOTS of Cheery Lynn Designs, as well as the companies you mentioned and they are in snap ware again A-Z, etc. Your way seems to be ideal, and you mention you have a catalog…can you please describe your catalog and how you index it…pretty please.
    Paper Hugs,

    Hi Becca, thanks so much for sharing this information. I’m always looking for the best containers to store my dies and have yet to find one that will fit my needs. Do these DVD cases allow you to also store Edgeabilities and Borderabilities? I used to use regular Jewel CD cases for my Spellbinders dies, but they’d break apart too quickly. ThanksReplyCancel

  • Vivian StrozewskiMay 19, 2014 - 11:10 am

  • Dottie DavisMay 19, 2014 - 12:18 pm

    I reallllly appreciate your answering our questions regarding your storage system for dies. It is a big thing to keep organized or we waste a lot of time hunting for stuff and that takes the fun right out of making cards and such. Thanks for your input, too, on putting a cut die in each dvd case so you can see how it cuts. That makes perfect sense. Also, the die catalog you made to peruse what you want to use, is a perfect solution instead of thumbing through dies looking for “just the right one.”ReplyCancel

  • TeresaMay 19, 2014 - 1:29 pm

    I am so very impressed with the way you store your dies. Die-cutting is also my weakness. Even though you have talked about your storage system before I think I am ready to try your way. Now if we could see the rest of your room. That would be great!!ReplyCancel

  • Darlene PMay 19, 2014 - 1:47 pm

    Can I come play in your craft room??????? I knew you had a lot of dies just based on the years I’ve spent following your blog and seeing all of your marvelous creations – but to see them stored this way, just blows me away!!ReplyCancel

  • Beth EllisMay 19, 2014 - 3:02 pm

    EEKKK!!! I forgot to comment again on Saturday and Sunday! Hope that won’t penalize me too much! Thanks for answering my question about what program you used for your labels, Becca! I had considered using those full sheets too and doing the Excel thing but when Tape on Line added those nice ACE individual labels I decided to with that. The Copic color markers are working well for me. I made a paper “Key” so I know what color stands for what. (Visual people like paper copies!) As I use the system more, I am becoming more familiar with what the colors stand for and don’t have to use the key as often. Would love to win more cases but am not too concerned. Hubby says he can install the media rack for me when we rearrange/remodel my craft room. Yea!!! Can’t wait for that to happen!ReplyCancel

  • June SefscikMay 19, 2014 - 4:15 pm

    Thank you for sharing your idea of how to store your dies….I use a similar idea, though not as organized as you are. I have used DVD and CD cases in the past, but not from Tape Online…I hope I win so I can try them out. Thanks for this opportunityReplyCancel

  • Heather MauckMay 19, 2014 - 4:57 pm

    Thank you so much for this post. I have a very small collection of dies but I also need to have them within easy reach or I just don’t use them. You have given me several ideas! I have been pondering what to do for storage. Hopefully I’ll get it all organized soon! I work (play) so much better when it is organized. I especially like your labeling/organizing of shape type. I’ll have to try that.ReplyCancel

    Thanks again Becca for all your amazing help to everybody in this world, no matter what it´s about, then we can always count on you to help us,if we have any questions about anything.
    I absolutely love your collection, and sure wish I was your next door neighbour, so I could run in and borrow, when I miss one ha ha ha, and just to flip through all your dies would definitely put my brain to work, I´m sure, an it would be like heaven. Not to mention how much one could learn just by watching over your shoulders, while working. I would sure love just to see your craftroom, maybe I should drop in, when we go to visit the US in the fall ha ha haReplyCancel

  • barbara macaskillMay 20, 2014 - 10:18 am

    I have been leaving comments in hopes that I am the lucky winner of this amazing prize package so I can get my dies corralled and more manageable but I don’t think I have thanked you yet for sharing this very detailed and helpful post. So, THANK YOU for sharing this information with us!
    I have done tons of research on how the best way to store dies is and after learning MANY ways to store them I have come to the conclusion that this way is the one that would best suit MY die storage needs. I know that everyone prefers a different system but after trying lots of ways and being frustrated with them all this way seems like it would suit my needs. The only thing holding me back is cost so winning this would enable me to give this storage solution a try sooner than later.
    I will be keeping my fingers crossed hoping to see my name later today as the incredibly blessed recipient of this prize package! If I don’t win then I will still be happy for whoever does win. Jealous but happy for them! Thank you for the chance to get started on organizing my rather large die collection!
    Have a great day and I will be stopping by later to see who won!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca

    I’m only just reading this post and just habe to tell you that this is exactly how I store my dies only mine are in the black dvd slim cases that I get very cheaply from the discount store. I print out a lovely colourful sleeve showing me exactly what is in there. Inside I also cut down pieces of magnetic storage sheet and find that as long as it is long enough to sit all the dies on length ways, it doesn’t need to be the whole width to keep them in place. These are stored on a dvd shelf/rack turned so that tney are stored horizontally. I managed to set up so that the description fit right on the spine of the case too (that took some doing!). I then group them into nestabilities, shapeabilities, labels etc then the nesties split into squares, circles, ovals etc, and the shapeabilities into group I.e. Christmas, nature, Accessories. I haven’t got a fraction of what you have (not many people have lol), but I have had this system since the beginning when I bought my first die cutting machine back at Christmas 2009 – way before I began blogging and finding lots of wonderful alternative storage ideas. However, I think this system works brilliantly – it seems that great minds think alike!!

    Thanks for sharing your way of organising your dies!
