I have been searching for a way to store my Wafer Die Cuts for some time. I had reached the point of frustration when I could no longer easily close my die cut drawer.
Yes, that has been my storage method for several years. So every time I need a die cut, I have to pull the entire drawer down off the top shelf and start rummaging through it. Not efficient or fun.
Over the years, I had unsuccesfully tried CD cases (to putzy, not viewable from the outside, and took-up too much room) and wall storage (took up too much space and the small ones were always falling off).
So I e-mailed the Kittie the *queen* of die cuts and asked what storage method she used ... and she recommended Stamp *n* Storage Wafer Die Cut Storage. This is a similar method to how I store my embossing folder (which I love being able to just thumb through), so I thought it looked like it would work for me ... so I ordered the Large (without Cover) and two sizes of Magnet Sheets.
My first step was to remove all of my die cuts from their packaging and put them onto the magnets (Yes almost that entire drawer is now in this box ... I purged 2 or three sets that I had no idea who made them or they had been discontinued).
These are very strong magnets, so there will be no risk of them falling off. I grouped my die cuts by companies, so all of the die cuts from the same company would be stored together.
As I worked through my collection, I stacked them up with the packaging, so I would have the company, die cut name, etc. when I went back to label them.
I used Avery 2"x4" White Shipping Labels (8163 for InkJet) and Avery Design & Print Online tool to label the back of my sheets.
So far, I am loving my new system. The only die cuts I didn't include were those that specifically coordinated with a stamp set. I put those into the Avery Elle Stamp Storage Pockets with the cordinating Stamp Set, so they would always be available together.
My next plan is to make some dividers to label each company, so they are even easier to locate.
