Please tell me if you like this system. How strong are the magnets?

I bought one with a 50% off coupon and a gift card. Honestly I don't use my dies at all, but I thought when I was putting them in that the magnetic pages were plenty strong...

The magnets are strong enough to hold them, but let you take them off easily. Sometimes they do kind of come off accidentally if you are trying to lift th magnet sheets off to get to one lower down.

The one thing that bothers me is that my case has cracked. It's heavy, but it's not even as full as it could be. So I'm not happy about that. It seems to have cracked from the weight of the contents.

I cut up magnetic duct vent covers (Menards--$6 for 2 large Magnetic Vent Cover ), put my die on the magnet and stick it in the pocket of a Martha pocket page from Staples. You can get the pages with 2 or 4 pockets. Some of the bigger dies (LifeStyle scalloped square, for instance) stick out a bit but not much.

I even labeled the pages with the file folder tab punch.

I use these sheets but keep them in an iris card container. They fit perfectly and are easy to flip thru

The art bins are working well for me. I think I have about ten sheets and the dies stick pretty well.

I hate this system. When I lift up the sheets, the dies fall off. The pages and container are not large enough size wise to hold the grand, borders and some of the shapes. So, I have 2 different containers, the artbin for the small dies and an iris container for the grand and large dies.

I only have the smaller size ones, I don't have any grands or borders.

I glued a little magnetic sheet inside the card the dies come with. I just have them inside a plastic drawer. I keep forgetting to take pics for my blog.

I've kept all my dies on magnets attached to their original packaging. I use the self-adhesive magnet strips on the packaging, about the same place the the sticky adhesive was originally. All my dies have recently moved into an iris box. It is heavy for it's size but very portable, and usable. I do not like throwing away the packaging on these dies, I wanted to keep track of the numbers and how many dies were in the set. This system works perfectly for me.

I have the artbin and like it. Dies seem to hold for me. A little heavy but not overly so.

That, and also if you forget the sandwich (I use a cuttlebug) you have the instructions, too.

I put mine on the inside that way they are protected front and back and won't get knocked off. They act as file folders. Because of the fold, some stick out from the top, but just a very small amount.

I recently purchased this. It is a bit heavy. So far it is working out ok for me. I try and pick up the refills with a coupon.

I bought the 8X11.5 magnetic sheets at WalMart and cut them to fit the small binder I got at the Dollar Tree. But for larger ones it would make sense to just leave the sheets whole, slide into a page protector and place in a regualr binder. Just a thought
