Storing Your Dies

by Joan Mary

My Grand Calibur die cutter stands on my desk and the wall in front of me holds 3 magnetic kitchen knife holders full of my dies.

This way they are easy to see and immediately accessible, safe too as they just hang there and don't get knocked about.

Christina says ...

Excellent idea and I have the same thing in my craft room so that everything is there neat and tidy.

Another way I store some of the smaller sets is to staple a piece of the magnetic sheet to the original packaging and keep the ides in there.

I then store them in a plasic box in a filed system and so I always know which dies I have.

I keep all the Labels together, Accents and Motifs in another and Floral and Foliage dies with each other.... and so on.

And I make sure to replace them after each cardmaking session so that I know if any are missing ... after all the last thing you want to do is misplace one of those precious dies.

Just found your site. Trying to find how to make a waterfall card. However, have been sidtrack but all the information to hand. Just about to start a group to show U3A ladies how to make cards. So am looking for all the help I can get from seasoned crafters, otherwise it will be the blind leading the blind! Do own my magical Grande Caliber, and many dies, just need to know how to teach basic card skills to beginners. Please, can you help?
