5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash - Day 3!

Hi there everyone! Welcome back to the 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash event from My Favorite Things! Isn't it so fun to hop along and see how we all organize our crafty stash? There is another TERRIFIC prize giveaway today so make sure you head on over to the MFT Blog for direct links to all participating designers and to find out what today's prize is!

Today we are focusing on organizing  Die-namics dies. I LOVE my Die-namics. LOVE. Don't know how I would craft without them. But keeping them organized was such a challenge for me until I saw this video from Jennifer McGuire. Just like my stamps, I store my Die-namics in these Clear Storage Pockets. I've been stamping for a long time and just love how this system works for me.



Here you can see them stored in my kitchen cabinet on the shelf above my stamps.


I store all of my Stax Die-namics and Blueprints Die-namics on the top shelf of my rolling cart. I reach for these for every card I make.

I store all of the stamp set companion Die-namics on the back side of the stamp set.

That's it from me today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for sharing your ideas on storage, to me every little bit helps.

Thanks for sharing your organizational system. I LOVE your wooden kitchen cabinet and your carts.

Love how you mentioned you keep your blueprints and stax on top of cart because you use them all the time. I'd like to know if you have a chart of some sort about what blueprint you would want to use. I'm talking like all the Blueprint "rectangles" and other shapes to layer up your cards. I'm in a pickle about how to do that.

Definitely a great system!! Love the bin storage and how you store the dies you use most on the cart within easy reach.

Ahhh, liking the single row storage for the dies.

So organized. I love it. Having the two different color dividers is a great reminder of what bin the stamp or the dies belong. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Love how organized you are. I so want one of those carts after doing this hop for 3 days and seeing how much they hold!

I use the carts too! And I love how neat these bins are - they look nice and sturdy! All f your ideas are so helpful!

Very nice and organized! I keep my dies in Art Bin totes and it seems to keep them neatly contained and easily accessible.

Huh. I like the stax and blueprints being separate like that -- and the color coding in white, pink and blue. I may use different colors, but I like that. I need something that obvious/simple! :)

I got the pockets too a while back, they do rock. Now just to find somewhere to put them and that fridge bin!
