Just a couple of tips for now.

I have used clear glass making liquid to make my flowers shiny, clear nail polish with glitter in it and clear full gloss varnish.
I also do Autumn leaves from the trees and shrubs. They look fab.
I bought a thick magnetic sheet that's used for fridge magnets. Cut it to the size I wanted and mounted it on a clear mount for stamps with double sided tape, and use it for picking up small dies.
I make my own pouches for any dies that don't have solid packaging. I go to my local shop that does laminating and ask for scraps.
They will usually give to you for free. I cut it into stripes 5" wide, and bone fold it 5"-5"-2 1/2. You can make them any size you want.
I get cheap tape from the 2 dollar shop to bind the sides together and the smallest bulldog clips to hold it closed.
